Should you find yourself in need of a bit of amusement in a dull moment while waiting for a train, plane or bus, then I can highly recommend the twitter feed of the Godless Spellchecker. Why? well because this bastion of non Divine Spelling Intervention is simply hilarious, and as testament to that fact, he has over 44,000 followers.
The entire basis for what he does is simple, there are a considerable number of religious kooks out there who will quite happily tweet anti-atheist quips on twitter that not only demonstrate a jaw-dropping degree of ignorance and stupidity but they also can’t apparently spell the word “atheist” – in other words it is atheist/atheism and not Athiest/Athiesm … yes yes, I know, the rule “I before E except after C” is indeed being ignored and yes “Atheist” is the correct spelling (you did know that … right?). Anyway, the Godless Spellchecker is not really about correcting the spelling of the kooky religious twits (its twitter, what else should I call them), but is actually more about having a one-liner comeback that is not just an informative reply, but is also highly amusing
Still not too sure what this is about? OK fair enough, let me give you a few examples …
… and we even have a bit of celebrity endorsement for you as well …
And finally, if you are indeed on twitter and pondering what to do now, then how about going here to get to the Godless Spellchecker’s feed and then clicking “Follow”, you will not be disappointed, unless you course you can’t spell “Atheist”.
The Number 1 Question – Who is he?
- Nope sorry, not telling, that would spoil the fun. I will however tell you this much, his birthday is 22nd April 1984.
