Moral Absolutism

31 01 2009

Can one be moral without the absolute morals established by God?  Is God even moral?

Another fascinating and well executed video in the series.

A big hat tip to Feministe for this original post.  I’m blown away.

Skewed Views Of Science

28 01 2009

You mean “scientific theory” doesn’t mean wild-ass uninformed guess?  Damn, I bet this will annoy my friends at Sunday school.

I’m digging this series of videos.  They’re not flashy but they make their points in well reasoned and largely noninsulting ways.  I too also like to make my point in these sorts of debates but generally I’m not so good at the noninsulting part.

Faith In God Versus Science

Not a fair fight really but I think this video sums it up quite nicely.

Coolest Inauguration Photo Ever!

27 01 2009

The people at Gigapan put together this massive photo up that you can pan and zoom in to an alomst unbelievable degree.  You can even see Justice Clarence Thomas napping during Obama’s speech.

Seriously, do yourself a favor and check it out.

Oh sure it’s just an early draft, but I think he might be onto something.

With Bush Gone NSA Whistleblower Steps Up

22 01 2009

Only one day after the Bush cloud of retribution lifted and already one member of the NSA has gone public with information of massive illegal spying of the American public.

If this is what is coming out on day one imagine what we have yet to learn.

Texas Fights To Retain Title “Most Ignorant State In America”

22 01 2009

One day after President Bush left office, Texas realized that its claim on being the preeminent source of “teh stupid” for America was in jeopardy. Luckily they had a plan to make sure that anytime people the world over thought of Texas they would naturally think of inbred religious dullards like their favorite native son* George Bush.

Today it was reported in the NY Times that the Texas State Board of Education, with the strong support of Republican Governor Rick Perry, is once again debating the relative merits of evolution versus the Biblical version of creation. Textbook publishers are being forced by the board to include phrases that sow artificial doubt about the scientific validity of evolution and implicitly lend support for the Biblical version of creation.

You just know that when the Texas chairman of the board of education is a dentist who thinks that the Earth is only a few thousand years old that Texas has a pretty strong chance of retaining the title.

Scientific obfuscation and Biblical nonsense expert Stephen C. Meyer of the Discovery Institute disingenuously ignores the 150 years worth of accumulative corroborating evidence that has confirmed Evolution and insists that he’s only advocating the promotion of “dissenting opinions”. This blatant lie of course caused God to clap thunder outside as soon as the words were uttered, but Mr. Meyer was too impressed with the scent of his own bullshit to notice.

With perfect timing a mechanical engineer from Houston then stepped up, with his teenage son drooling by his side, and said (and I’m not making this up) “Textbooks today treat [Evolution] as more than a theory, even though its evidence has been found to be stained with half-truths, deception and hoaxes. Darwinian evolution is not a proven fact.”

And with that Texas noticeably relaxed knowing that their reputation was secure and that regardless how the textbook challenge was resolved the world would always view them as the most ignorant fucksticks in America.

* Of course Bush isn’t really from Texas but they’re not letting that inconvenient fact get in the way of a good yarn. If you choose to mention this fact to a Texan please be sure that he is already wearing his helmet.

Obama And Teh Gay Pride

20 01 2009

So I stumbled across a friendly little website run by the wholesome Christian Anti Defamation Commission.  They apparently prefer the acronym D.I.L.D.O.S. but I don’t know what that stands for and I don’t think that makes any sense at all.  Oh well, it’s what they want to be called and who am I to argue?

So these DILDOS have all sorts of loving articles feigning victimization under the guise of anti-Christian persecution.  It’s really quite astonishing the level of delusion and paranoia on display there.

The article that really caught  my eye though is a fantastic example of Jesus style loving his fellow man titled Inaugural Warning: P for Perverse.  Google it if you wish, I’m not giving these DILDOS the free link.  In this remarkable example of mainlined homophobia (or should that be manlined?) our shiny vibrating cock like heroes are worried that all wholesome Christian children will be scarred into a debaucherous gay lifestyle if they watch the Obama inauguration because …*shhhhh* (whispering so the kids won’t hear)…there will be some gays in the parade.

Now I know what you’re thinking.  “Men marching all around the city in silly clothes and funny hats blowing on enormous metallic and wooden phalluses, of course they’re GAY!” Well you’re of course right on all counts there my friend (and double congratulations on spelling the plural of phallus correctly).  No, they’re even more upset because there is one band in particular that openly admits they’re gay and that, along with their rainbow embellishments, just won’t do.  Here, take a look at what they say.

Teh gays on paradeTo ensure no one misses the perversion, the Inaugural parade will include a homosexual marching band with their rainbow flags flying proud with millions of our nation’s children and Christians watching. This is the same band that proudly advertises that it will march in the homosexual Southern Decadence parade, known for its vulgarity and lewd acts in public. In 2003, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that it had “become routine” for men to flash their genitals and perform public sex acts at the event, which bills itself as ‘the Gay Mardis Gras.’” Have fun explaining that to the little ones.

On this historic occasion of the Inauguration of the 44th President of the United States, I must unfortunately recommend that you keep the kids away from the TV and pray that God will not rain fire and brimstone down on Washington DC. “

Ah yes, these DILDOS think there is going to be a band “performing” in the presidential inaugural parade (so to speak) marching around with their cocks out and fucking each other…all while playing tubas and rusty trombones?  I don’t know about you but if they could do all that at the same time they would cease to be a marching band and would instead call themselves “Cirque Du Soleil” and would have no business celebrating our gayest president ever.

PS:  I registered on the DILDOS site so I could read and post comments.  Sadly they rejected my usual Super Jesus avatar (as seen in my About S.J.) but they had no problem with this one.

DILDO approved!

DILDO approved!

No shit.  Go figure.

Bush: 8 Years In 8 Minutes

20 01 2009

Even eight minutes of rapid fire reading cannot cover all the incompetence and ruin wrought by our previous president and his administration, but it’s a start.

Here’s to the next four years. Everyone grab a shovel, we’ve got some serious shit to clean up here.
