The Flying Spaghetti Monster is one of the funniest Atheist jokes of all.Life’s been way too serious for me lately, so I rounded up some atheist jokes for a bit of a pick-me-up. Yes, some of these are hokey. But they’re also kind of funny.

For the record, I consider myself more agnostic than atheist because I don’t pretend to know what is (or isn’t) out there. Organized religion is basically mythology, but I do think it’s possible that some sort of energy or as-yet-unknown matter influences the universe. Not a man with a beard, though. Or even a woman with a beard.

No matter what you believe, these atheist jokes should make you laugh (or at least groan):

– An atheist buys an ancient lamp at an auction, takes it home, and begins to polish it. Suddenly, a genie appears and says, “I’ll grant you three wishes, Master.” The atheist says, “I wish I could believe in you.” The genie snaps his fingers, and suddenly the atheist believes in him. The atheist says, “Wow. I wish all atheists would believe this.” The genie snaps his fingers again, and suddenly atheists all over the world begin to believe in genies. “What about your third wish?” asks the genie. “Well,” says the atheist, “I wish for a billion dollars.” The genie snaps his fingers for a third time, but nothing happens. “What’s wrong?” asks the atheist. The genie shrugs and says, “Just because you believe in me, doesn’t necessarily mean that I really exist”

– One day, a zookeeper noticed that the orangutan was reading two books: the Bible and Darwin’s Origin of Species. Surprised, he asked the ape, “Why are you reading both those books?” “Well,” said the orangutan, “I just wanted to know if I was my brother’s keeper or my keeper’s brother.”-

– Atheist: What’s this fly doing in my soup?
