    In Florida, an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter and Passover
    holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days.
    The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days.

    The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring,"Case dismissed!"

    The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, "Your Honor
    (well, he was American!), how can you possibly dismiss this case? The
    Christians have Christmas,
    Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah,
    yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays."

    The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Your client,
    counsel, is woefully ignorant."

    The lawyer said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance
    or holiday for atheists."

    The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fools' Day. Psalm
    14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is
    the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God,
    then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned.

    And so say all of us!

    On a tombstone somewhere: "Here lies an Atheist, All dressed up and nowhere to go."

    Funny, but unfortunately, that's not necessarily true.

    Yes, all unsaved (whether they believe there is a God or not) have their final destination just as believers do. Ours will be much more enjoyable. Believing there is a God does not guarantee access into heaven. It's all a matter of what we do with that belief.

    I like that one. I suppose you've heard the well worn poem found on a grave stone in the grave yard in Cornwall. Can't remember the church right now. But it goes:

    All ye who pass by pray cast an eye.
    As You are so once was I.
    As I am so you will be.
    So be content to follow me.

    and some wag had scrawled below it:

    To follow thee I'm not content.
    Til I know which way you went.
