…Right.
Anyone want to take a shot at this?
Anyone?

Too easy.  Like shooting fish in a bowl.

Like the fish (humans) denying that the bowl (earth) is round and NOT at the center of the universe. Or are we forgetting this used to be a thing?
And let me tell you, atheism is NOT the easy path.

I know God is everywhere in most religions, but I’m pretty sure that part of hir/their divinity isn’t being pulled through gills and filtered for oxygen. This is a very confused simile.
For the record, though, from a historical standpoint, the atheist fish is the fish most likely to point out to the other fish that they aren’t suspended in nothingness, but rather floating in a liquid (let’s call it “water” for fun), and that they are dependent on this water for their survival and probably don’t want to fuck with it too much, which the religious fish would naturally respond to by angrily shouting “BLASPHEMY GOD WILL PROVIDE RECANT YE SINNER”, while the fish with a quiet personal faith would look on in great confusion and sadness, wondering why everybody’s so mad.

Except science can demonstrate the existence of water, its composition, its force, and its necessity to fish survival.No big though…Side note: I bet the fish are all evangelists proselytizing for Poseidon. But all we hear is “glug glug glug”
