Atheist Rap – The New Sensation?

Greydon Square is not a London locale. He is an openly atheist rapper, and his music is replete not only with sharp sound, but intelligent lyrics. His raps openly refute common proselyte topics including attacks on evolutionary theory, carbon dating and Pascal’s Wager.

Then they try and hit me with the wager
Who? Pascal’s wager. Who? Pascal’s wager.
Now that’s a fool’s bet
And against the intelligent it’s used less
Really? You bet!
This ain’t nothing new, they use it on kids
But for those who don’t know it goes a little like this:
“Wouldn’t you rather believe in God and be wrong
Then to not believe in God and be wrong
If you believe in God and your wrong you’ve lost nothing
But if you don’t believe and you’re wrong its all suffering”
The problem is you can try it on anything
Switch the Gods around and apply it to anything
The Flyin’ Spaghetti Monster, Zeus, Amin, Ra
Krishna, Odin, Baal and then Allah
Which one of em’s our God?
None of em, all false

He has faced pressure from many fundamentalist pundits and aptly makes the point that society is more concerned with rap promoting atheism than rap that supports beating women and selling crack. When you consider that atheists are the least trusted minority in the United States, it’s not hard to realize why that would be.

Even if you are not a fan of rap, I recommend you take a moment and visit the following links to show your support for a man that faces fire in the public spotlight every day for intelligently representing atheists in his art through appeals to scientific evidence.
