Dude. Google image "Baphomet". You don't think that's giant dick coming up out of his/her/ze's lap?

If you believe in Satan.

How can you be atheist?


For fun, and to troll christians.


If it's a religion. And has a doctrine -- it is not atheist.

Non-theist does not mean atheist.

Having some atheistic views (such as Buddhism) does not make it atheist.

That's funny! The same crossed my mind, also. If they had Bill and Hillary, why not Baphomet? That's probably what's known as progress, in Arkansas. They could likely get a lot more people in an uproar, though, if they erected a really scary statue, maybe a giant toothbrush!

I hope to god Christians have learned from their prosecution and will raise hell until this statue is torn down.


As long as they remove the statue of the 10 commandments as well.

It is the Clintons old stomping ground.
Least they could do to commemorate their victims.
Maybe a little plaque with the names of all the women and body guards.

They use that name to irritate Christians, they don't believe in the historical Satan, it's a life style choice, not a theistic religion.



Having atheistic views is not atheist.

They have a doctrine/belief system which includes some atheistic views.

There is a difference.

I have, and no I don't. I see a symbol with a far different significance. In fact, I feel like it takes effort to interpret that pin with the snakes wrapped around it as a penis. I personally don't want snakes to be wrapping around my penis. I'm pretty sure that applies to most men, so I can't imagine why anyone would want to worship an idol that does.

And just as easily I could say it takes willful ignorance to not see it.

You can say whatever you want, but there are actual historical reasons for why the statue looks the way it does. Frankly neither pedophilia, erect penises, nor incest are part of that equation. Do you think hot dogs are erect penises too just because it is phallic?

"On the Baphomet's stomach is an old Greek symbol of two serpents entwined around a staff - the staff which was carried by Hermes and heralds in general.

The caduceus symbolises trade, negotiation and reciprocity and was co-opted into the Baphomet by Levi.

"For us it symbolises reconciliation of the opposites - such as having a Satanic monument opposite a Christian one," says Greaves.

"We think that's a powerful message when it's sitting opposite the Ten Commandments - you can have these dualities, differences without conflict."

Not a penis. You're assuming what it is, and apparently you didn't do the "research" either.

No, because I'm not an idiot.

However you claim historical reasons, look into the history of the baphomet, which you have not, you are wrong and you know it, yet it kills you to admit it.

Thank you for this. It's literally ridiculous to assume that is anything but the caduceus.

Burden of Proof

The burden of proof (Latin: onus probandi, shortened from Onus probandi incumbit ei qui dicit, non ei qui negat) is the obligation on a party in a dispute to provide sufficient warrant for their position.
