"Science flies you to the moon. Religion flies you into buildings."
Heathen is a 20-page tabloid newspaper using quotes from various humanists and secular types. The newspaper contains dozens of quotes from Friedrich Nietzsche, Bertrand Russell, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Victor Stenger and many more.
Throughout the newspaper there are various typographic posters lovingly created with dozens of typefaces, many of which are available from Hype For Type. Some of these posters have been reproduced as silkscreen prints.

Nice, welcome to Dribbble
Islam flies you into buildings.. not religion. And if Victor Stenger did some research, he'd know that the columbine shooting was done by two evolutionists, one of which was wearing a shirt that said "you don't deserve the chin that evolution gave you". I won't even get into the fact that colleges were started by Christians, along with hospitals, so we wouldn't have made it to the moon without Christianity, we could keep going but I think you get the picture.
Anyways, welcome to Dribbble!
@Nick Chamberlin I think what you mean is a group of people within the Islamic communities flies you into buildings. Just like a group of people in the Christian communities bomb abortion clinics. Scripture wasn't the inspiration for colleges/hospitals to be built. It just so happened some people who labeled them selves "christian" created the first colleges/hospitals. I'd argue If it weren't for the religious persecution and oppression of scientific thought we could of have had a man on the moon probably a 1000 years earlier. What do I know though?
Christians don't bomb abortion clinics, anyone can call themselves a Christian, doesn't mean they are. The Koran actually teaches that Muslims are commanded to kill non-muslims, if you were to do in depth research on that religion and not just take Oprah's word on it. The Bible teaches the exact opposite.
Yeah I agree, the Roman Catholic church definitely hindered the world from furthering itself, no argument there.
The separation I'm making is between "Christians" - people who call themselves that but don't actually follow what Christ taught, and real Christians, who actually do what Jesus taught. The roman catholic church took a huge step away from Christianity. They may still call themselves Christians, but the Bible will define for you what a Christian is, and what a Christian isn't.
Ahh probably not the best place to discuss this.
I hope I don't come across as sounding rude or hostile or anything like that, I don't intend to :P
This might be the most controversial first shot I've seen lol.
Welcome to Dribbble regardless.
I'm just wondering why the 'S' of Science isn't aligned to the left?
I love this quote, yet it's so misunderstood. The point is, religion helps anyone justify anything to themselves. It doesn't matter which fairy tale you choose to believe; if you're convinced you've got God by your side you can't be wrong, right!?
And, @Nick Chamberlin . The Bible justifies slavery, racism, misogyny, homophobia, genocide... Unless, of course, you're picking and choosing the nice Jesus bits and ignoring the rest like most "real Christians".
@Jamie Hunter You should actually study it, and again, not just listen to Oprah. If you had, you'd know it justifies none of those, actually condemns them. But you'd have to actually do some research, not just read blogs on the internet(because we all know everything we read on the internet is true). ^_-
And you can't pick and choose from the Bible, you take it as a whole, in context, with research into history so you can understand the idioms and language.
But you're right about one thing, if you do pick and choose what you want to believe, you'll get most religions today, and you'll get an utter failure of mankind. Picking and choosing is what leads to the abortion clinics being bombed, it's what leads to people saying "God told me to kill this person and eat their brain, cooked in oil, with cat hair... take it as a whole or don't take it at all.
Thank you for your comments. This project is posted on several sites now, and as a rule I tend not to reply to criticism of the quotes themselves. Given the subject matter and the responses they may provoke you can understand why – Dribbble perhaps isn't the most suitable arena to hold a reasonable discussion about religion and ethics. That said, there are a couple of things @Nick Chamberlin mentioned here which I felt compelled to answer.
“And if Victor Stenger did some research, he'd know that the columbine shooting was done by two evolutionists.”
I don't know much about the personal lives of the Columbine killers, but whatever their reasons for murdering innocent people I'd wager they didn't commit their crimes in the name of evolution.
“I won't even get into the fact that colleges were started by Christians, along with hospitals, so we wouldn't have made it to the moon without Christianity, we could keep going but I think you get the picture.”
It's difficult to know where to even begin unpicking this except to say the period of time when Christianity had a free reign and its hand in all matters was called the Dark Ages, and for good reason. Organised Christian leadership was vehemently opposed to reason, education, and science, and barbaric in their methods of persecution. I would be interested to know why you think the moon landing owes itself to the organised followers of the god of Abraham rather than the endeavours of the scientific communities.
“Christians don't bomb abortion clinics, anyone can call themselves a Christian, doesn't mean they are. The Koran actually teaches that Muslims are commanded to kill non-muslims, if you were to do in depth research on that religion and not just take Oprah's word on it. The Bible teaches the exact opposite.”
Pick up any holy book, whether the Old Testament, the New Testament, the Book of Mormon, or the Koran, and you will find myriad contradictions – sometimes within the same verse. Let me give you an example. Exodus 20:8, Exodus 31:15, and Numbers 15:32-36 firmly state the sabbath must be observed. Yet Isaiah 1:13, John 5:16, and Colossians 2:16 state the contrary. So should Christians observe the sabbath or not?
Religion relies on a threat-level approach to coerce followers: believe in me or burn in hell; don't change religions or be put to death; observe the sabbath or be put to death; don't pretend to be a virgin or be stoned to death, and so on. Over the last few years I have worked in schools, and if I want the children in my care to respond positively to my teaching and behave reasonably the worst thing I can do is threaten them with punishment. You simply cannot expect a literal following of the Abrahamic texts to lead to responsible behaviour in all matters.
Leviticus 25:45-46, Exodus 21:2-7, Surah 4:92, and Joel 3:8 all permit slave ownership and the trading of human beings. Surah 4:34, Timothy 2:11, Ephesians 5:22-4, and Colossians 3:18 order women to be silent and submit to their husbands. Genesis 22:2 orders human sacrifice. Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, and Surah 29:28-29 condemn homosexuality. With morality like this, why anyone would choose to be devout escapes me.
@Alex Szabo-Haslam Oh dude... that's so much to reply to. I'll see if I can reply to this sometime soon, so you have answer to your questions.
