Christian Drinker's Club
To sell us on the idea of drinking spirits may be the fundamental purpose of a Christian drinker's club. Nevertheless, a message printed on a label of a bottle of spirits convinced me of the validity of sober Atheism. The label read as follows: "The Surgeon General has determined that drinking alcohol may be harmful to your health."
In answer to the charge that an Atheist lacks spirit, the fact is that the human cholesterol of a sober Atheist is 100% solid alcohol. To harbor any concoction in lieu of cholesterol may dilute the human spirit.
In response to an attempt to confute a sober Atheist by telling one that he/she may drink, I suggest this rejoinder: Put your Throne on your Crown. A throne may be either a male fly or a monarch's seat, while a monarch may be either a butterfly or a tyrant, and a crown may be a portion of a skull, a coin of the realm, or a timely headpiece worn with grace. One may drink water, soft and pure.

So, then, what does this make your blood alcohol level at this moment?
