Yesterday’s post came from the websiet EvolveFISH. There’s some great stuff to buy there for the skepics among us. Here’s what they say about themselves:
EvolveFISH is an enterprise based in Colorado that is dedicated to countering the destructive aspects of religious zealotry. We create and gather enlightened symbols and materials and advertise these products online, focusing on areas where zealots are trying to usurp the freedoms of the targets of their bigotry.
EvolveFISH has survived 18 years of battling the evangelical fundamentalist religious right. We can’t claim to have won, but we are still here and proud to be out of the closet!
We appreciate your business. Your purchases keep us going here in the crazy fundamentalist town of Colorado Springs, which is home to the New Life Church and Focus on The Family!
Way back in 1993, when we started, many thought we were reactionary crazies and that no one would take the creationist, or intelligent design folks, seriously. Sadly, we were right. The lunatics are gradually taking over the American asylum. Unfortunately, the human species pays more attention to fear and emotion, than to logic. So the idea of living again with a god, after you die, is very tough to give up. There is truth to the old saying, “fear sells. Are you buying?” Now is the time, for all of us rational folks, to be afraid, as the real nut jobs are at the helm.
Buy from us so we can continue to support progressive folks and ideals. Help others be brave by putting a sticker on your car, a button on your shirt, a shirt on your chest, and a magnet on your fridge, locker door, and computer case or file cabinet! And know it is our priority to provide you with items that make jobs for Americans by purchasing items that are made in the United States. Our goal is to have at least 95% of our merchandise be “Made in the USA.” When every aspect of a product is made in America, it will be duly noted as “100% made in the USA.” We would love this to be the case for everything we sell here. Unfortunately, because some things are just not made in the US, certain components of an item may not be made in our country. In these circumstances, we will assign it a percentage, like “95% made in the USA.”
Since it’s important for us to set this standard, we constantly search for things made here. If we offer something that is not made in the USA, and you know of a vendor in America that offers the same thing, please let us know about it!You’ll find that you’ll make more friends than enemies and you will feel empowered again!
If you want to know more, you can e-mail, or give us a call. Real people answer the phones during regular business hours: Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm, Mountain Time.
We are actively involved with many atheist, freethought and humanist groups. Follow the link to view a list: http://www.evolvefish.com/related.html

Charles Darwin on religion:
“I can hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true: for if so the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother, and almost all of my best friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine.”
