• Atheist Themed Halloween Costumes

    Halloween is such an awesome holiday. People get dressed up in all kinds of scary, sexy, and creative costumes and then give and receive delicious candy and treats. Plus, fundamentalists hate it. All this fun makes fundamentalists go nuts. So while pretty much doing anything on Halloween becomes an attack on Jesus to many believers, I want to know what atheist, humanist, and blasphemous costumes people wear or plan to wear on Halloween.

    In an old article that I wrote for Examiner, I compiled a small list of costumes that are atheist themed, but I would like to know what other atheists have done or plan to do. Is there a costume idea you think would be great for promoting atheism and critical thinking on Halloween? Have you carved any cool atheist themed jack-o-lanterns? What about atheist themed Halloween decorations outside your home?

    If you have a costume idea or an interesting or funny story about Halloween and the religious you would like to share, please leave it in the comments section below. If you have a photo of jack-o-lanterns, home decorations, or an atheist themed costume, please e-mail them to me and I will post it in a later follow-up post.
