Psst... they're Photoshopped. Joke signs, if you will.

Oh, and the airplane crossing sign? Might be on an airfield, and a taxiway crosses the road there...

And your comment of possible discrimination may be correct. I can't remember if the area in Rome arround the Vatican is barricaded against non-believers.

No, they are even (of course) allowed to enter the church itself.

Btw. Does anyone know why the religious sights in Mekka aren't accessable for non-muslims? I mean, anywhere else I can visit a mosque (more or less) whenever I want.

I also visited the museum at the Vatican and no one asked about my religion. I am atheist too.

I hear that among the population of Saudi Arabia, 100% are Muslim ! That's because atheists are executed and all the other non-muslims are harrassed by the religious police. There is also serious Islamic propaganda in schools.

And then some of us still wonder where do all those suicide bombers come from...

It's funny to hear u find the moose -sings weird Here, in Finland, I see those everywhere, and it's no big deal.

That sign, where the speed limits go all the way from about 60 to 10 is funny. How stupid do they think people are?

Although its very easy to be recognized as muslim. You just have to say to an imam that you believe in Allah and that Mohammed is Its prophet.

Allah is the arabic translation of God. Actually all Christians could describe them as muslims if they also respect Mohammed as prophet, at least I know one person who does have officially both relegions, which can opens lot of doors in the Middle-East

How many times have you been to Saudi Arabia? Do you personally know any atheist who has been harassed by the religious police? You are being arrogant.

No, I am not arrogant, maybe only sick that everyone in the EU & US is too politically correct and concerned with oil to act against such a despicable regime, that sponsors those who blow themselves up to kill us.

Atheists and those who renounce Islam really are killed as per Sharia (which is official law there). I know it's kind of hard to understand for us westerners but that's the way it is.

Of course, it's possible to lie about your beliefs, as in all totalitarian regimes. But it's not easy living a lie and being someone else but you.
