Vote for atheism on Larry King Live website!

http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/larry.king.live/
I know, I know, they call atheism a religion on there but, if we get alot of people to vote that they are atheist, it will be nice to let people know there are lots of us. Of course we are only at 6% now, so we need votes! 
This will be airing on Larry King tonight.

I like how Atheism and Agnostic are separate.

 

If they were together, like they should be, then they'd be 3rd.

That part of my post was sarcasm. I thought the second part:

made that clear.

*shrugs* guess not.

One think I would like to

One think I would like to point out:

"This is not a scientific poll"

Points for that, as much for admitting it but for also mentioning it right there under the poll.

It would be "easy" to put the +4% agnostic onto atheist, for the reason that if they were agnostic theist, they had all the other options including "spiritual" and "not listed", but to be strict about it, I would not lump em togeather. Sticking out tongue

Current results at the time of this post:

Christianity 52% 1585
Judaism 4% 129
Islam 2% 53
Buddhism 1% 34

JWs listed

I can't believe they even bothered to list JWs at all; after all, they're such a nobody fringe group; even the other Christians don't believe they are "true Christians," although the JWs think they're the only true Christians, ha ha ha.  Why not list the Dyanetics Group, too?  What silliness!

Not only is is scientific, it's not even working properly, it would of been nice if it did turn out as the #2 position it was shaping up to be, it might of been mentioned, but now that's out the window. Sticking out tongue

It was a bunch of people

It was a bunch of people from 4chan who were running scripts to make the numbers go higher. From the look of it they were trying to get it to either somewhere in 70% or over 9000 (which is an injoke).

They made their goal, but got caught up in a still-ongoing religious debate, and some of them decided they should've gone for "Mine's not listed" instead of "Atheism".

It's ridiculous and almost funny at the same time. Laughing

Do Atheists prefer Larry King and CNN?

Check out the results of this poll! I mean I could totally understand maybe 35% or even 40% is a stretch but 70%!!! This was very surprising to me. Any ideas as to what might be the reason.

It was raided by 4chan Ebaums. From what I gathered from Dematrah's post, and my own visit to that message board, they were/are running scripts to get the number of atheists over 9000. They've succeeded, but haven't stopped voting.

Good night, funny man, and thanks for the laughter.

Even if the numbers were

Even if the numbers were legit it would only prove that the atheists have a more active internet community. I thought it was possible, since at least the atheists don't try and remove spirits from their monitors when they get a virus. It stands to reason we might have a higher percentage of computer literate folks.

I jest obviously, it will be a LONG time before atheists will have equal numbers to theists.
