David from Berlin's Atheist Shoe Company sends us, "a Kickstarter for Atheist Baby Shoes - super snuggly handmade shoes, the soles of which are screenprinted with homages to the only higher powers babies know...
Our slightly peculiar video explains all - highlights are the 'Atheist Baby Experiment' at the 1:40 mark and the 'Booby' power-ballad at 5:37."
We're pretty sure all babies are born atheists and, rather than commit them to some religion before they're old enough to have a say (let alone control their pooping functions) we'd rather celebrate their undoubted belief in Mummy, Daddy and breasts.
The shoes are basically a mini version of our grown-up Atheist Shoes, handmade with a lot of love in Berlin.
We'll alo have them for same sex couples... with "I believe in Daddy & Daddy" and "I believe in Mummy & Mummy" sole pairings. And we'll have a vegan-friendly version.
These are the folks who determined that sealing their boxes with ATHEIST tape made them mysteriously disappear from the USPS before delivery.

Unlike traditional lighters, the SaberLight features an electronic plasma beam that’s both rechargeable and butane-free. This sleek lighter is even approved by TSA, so you’ll never be stuck buying lighters you’ll just have to throw away partially used. For some people, like me, this is a pretty big game-changer. The SaberLight’s beam is actually both hotter and cleaner […]
