I think that the image below is one of the most thought-provoking images to emerge in the wake of 9/11. Obviously it has been around for some time and lots of people have already posted it and remarked upon it. I’ve thought about what I’d say about the picture and its significance but can think of nothing that says it as well as the picture does…

  1. Hi Alex,
    I hadn’t seen this before. A Google image search on ‘imagine no religion’ threw up plenty copies of it. I wondered how people had responded, and did a similar image search on ‘imagine no atheism’ to see if anyone had done a response poster (I don’t know, concentration camp chimneys, perhaps?), but nothing (although it did throw up a picture of Stalin, perhaps that was some kind of response). I didn’t fancy seeking out any actual discussions!
    Best wishes,

  2. Hi Iain,

    I too am surprised that there doesn’t seem to be much imagery created as a response to that picture. Also, it’s probably wise staying away from any discussions on the matter – very thorny and touchy – so the discussions may not be entirely rational…


  3. Thanks Alex,

    It puts me in mind of the Milton Jones joke:

    “My dad always said, ‘Fight fire with fire’. That’s why they made him leave the fire brigade.”

    When everyone’s fighting fire with fire, you just get one big fire. Best to stand back.

    best wishes,
