Neat coincidence, I’d say. Love to see one of them.

What I can’t understand is why even a believer would want to have this motto on the coinage ... I mean, isn’t it just a bit blasphemous?

These will be collectors items and probably quite expensive. This is probably become a great collectible for atheists. I already have a lot of the pre-IGWT money, you can get it on ebay for fairly cheap.

No worries, it happens. We just prefer not to duplicate conversations.

Now it’s only a matter of time until a coin pops up with the likeness of the Virgin Mary on it.

Hmmm…..I wonder how much that will fetch on Ebay??

.

I always get a kick out of that, since there are no pictures of the virgin Mary or Jesus for that matter how do they KNOW that is who they imagine they are seeing?  Could just as easily be der devil.  smile

I read a letter to the editor the other day in the Augusta Chronicle (Augusta, Georgia, that is) who insisted that the motto had been deliberately placed on the edge of the new coin (by the godless liberals in the government) precisely so that it would easily rub off!

Oh no, Doug.  You must witness and testify as you shout it to the whole world that you believe in God and that Jesus Christ is your saviour and redeemer.  It’s only blasphemous if you say something against the Holy Spirit, which is funny, isn’t the H.S. also God?  Not to mention J.C. was God [the son], so he had himself killed.  rolleyes  OK does this mean as Mriana the daughter, Mriana the Mother, and Mriana the um…  Well you see where I’m going with this…  Does this mean Mriana that daughter can die and still be alive and well as Mriana the mother, yet still be Mriana the Daughter?  rolleyes  OK so it wasn’t that funny, but I’m sure we’ve all thought about that crazy three in one deal.

Anyway, on a more serious note, I would have loved to have seen those coins too.

Interesting that it’s happen again and yet, I have not seen one of these “Godless coins”.  Or maybe I haven’t been paying attention.  THen again, I’ve not gotten one of these Adam dollars either.  I’d love to see one.

In answer to Doug’s question about what X-ians want it on the coins is because they are proud to say that they trust in God.  They figure with a capital “G” it only means one god- there god, but in reality, it could be any number of gods, if you think about it.
