OK, the person who did the last atheist wallpaper got comments about how it was ugly..heres maybe a nicer loking one that you could USE as a wallpaper... It was created in GIMP using flame with the "anti-pope" gradient hahaha wow amazing and if anyone wants to complain...well....obviously "God" wanted it to happen....

Nice way to make a point--mindlessly quote someone else's words, as if they're Holy Scripture.

Yup, you sure made a point.

If you haven't anything nice to say....don't say anything. Constructive critiscm is fair enough....but not stuff like that...just piss off

Although I commend your taste in literature, I don't much like this wallpaper to be honest with you. The background image is fuzzy. The text is too bright for my tastes; using a slightly darker grey or reducing the opacity would go a long way in my opinion.

And I don't much like serif fonts, but that is just a personal taste. :)

I like this one much better. Although the quote is shortened to a point where the original meaning does not get quite clear. Here's the context:

'Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mindboggingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.
'The argument goes something like this: "I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing."
'"But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so tehrefore, by your own argument, you don't. QED."
'"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.
'"Oh, that was easy," says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing.'

Well, for one, BSD lisence is much free-er than GPL and for two, I happen to like BSDs Chuck....him and tux are like THE cuteness!!..the GNU thingy..is it a bison? its soo ugly yuk! :p
well thanks for expressing an opniion anyway....i dont pretend to know either of the licenses inside out...but i do know that the bsd one provides more freedom...:) and that is what OSS is about!
