Yes, and I would hazard a guess that their hygiene, breeding customs, diets and posture are also way better than most theists who come here. Monkeys also add to society because they make me laugh. Hehe...silly monkeys. Theists make me laugh too, but it's a different kind of funny, really.

Think of it as Skull Island for theistic beliefs...Even if you survive the Choobusaurus there is still that ravine full of giant atheistropods waiting to make a meal of you.

I dunno. Grammar and sentence structure aren't everything. I infinitely prefer, say, Salty, who, whatever his spelling and grammatical errors, tries to argue his case (even if he isn't very good at it) to, say, the grammatically impeccable hypocritical smug whiner that is Francis.

Can you detect a theme here?

"Putty-nosed monkeys put two different alarm calls together to create urgent warnings, according to observations recently made of the West African primates."

So Putty nose monkeys can string two calls together - why then can't theists string two coherent sentences together?

Who is cleverer?.....mmmmmmmm

Invisibility and nothingness look an awful lot alike.

We are indeed smarter than most theists- except for those few of our kind that are theists themselves. They just sit in prayer while we throw our feces at them. :)
