“From there Elisha went up to Bethel. While he was on his way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him. “Go up baldhead,” they shouted, “go up baldhead!” The prophet turned and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two shebears came out of the woods and tore forty two of the children to pieces.” — 2 Kings 2:23-24
Nice. Poor bears, minding their own business, being bears in the woods, and then forced by god to kill children.
I bet they didn’t get any kudos for that, like god giving them super-intelligence or a green lantern ring or $10,000 per kid.
They were robbed.

So, what’s this all about?
I’m an atheist. My name is Bear. And I’m going to write about bears and atheism. But mostly about atheism.
*shrugs* It’s a start ….
