My Daughter and I went out for Chinese food last night.  For some reason our phones could not connect to the internet, while in the restaurant.  It forced us to talk to each other.  It was great fun.  We shared stories and told each other jokes.  When the bill came we each got a fortune cookie and read our future.  My teenage daughter has already heard that after you read your fortune you add the phrase …. in bed.

I think one of them said, “Soon all will be revealed to you,”  and we added ….in bed.  Where did my little baby girl go?

Well, I was thinking why don’t religions put things in fortune cookies.  I though of a few and wanted to share them with you (see below).  I also wanted to challenge you to come up with you own and add them in the comments below.

I will let this contest go until October 15th.

I will take the 5 best and work them into my talk at Skepticon 5! (see what I did there?)

Location: Springfield, Missouri
Date: November 9-11, 2012

The very best fortune subbmitted in the comments here will get a copy of “Attack of the Theocrats” signed by the Author Sean Faircloth.

While I will be the “decider” of the best fortunes, I encourage you to make your views known.  If you see a good one just add your voice and tell us you like it.

Here are a few of the religious fortune cookies I thought of.  (put yours in the comments below)

“Father remove these chains…”  (…in bed)

“Jesus will come again…”

You get the idea.  So, what have you got?  Be creative and crazy.  Have fun.

Oh, it can be any religion.  How about this one?

“Mohammed…”

Give it a try and maybe, I will read yours at Skepticon 5!
