Holy Crap, I Agree With Rush Limbaugh?!

28 04 2009

I think I just threw up a little in my mouth to admit that but it’s true, on this topic and in this moment I agree with the Rushbo.  The torture defending, pill popping, homo phobing, war mongering champion of all things greedy selfish and neoconisticly conservative…has a soft spot for puppies.  Much to the chagrin of his right wing fans who believe it is “sport” to shoot and kill animals for fun, Rush is now fighting animal cruelty for the Humane Society.

Limbaugh has been airing public-service radio spots supporting a crack down on dogfighting and other animal-cruelty crimes as well as the moral obligation that we have to be good stewards of God’s creatures.

Whatever.  I might agree with his new pro-animal position here but I think this campaign has more to do with getting Rush “the great white fail” laid than it does with him getting in touch with his sensitive side and helping anyone other than himself.  Just two months ago a poll was released that showed only 37 percent of women held a favorable opinion of the femi-nazi baiting radio host.  He even went so far as to convene a ‘Female Summit’ to figure out why women hate him so much.  Sure he might be worried about his radio show’s ratings too but I think the more reasonable conclusion is that there are a diminishing (approaching zero) number of attractive women who would go so far as to put up with his pompous pimply gelatinous ass and go to bed with him.

Even so, I like the idea that Rush’s overt conservative obnoxiousness made it so impossible for him to get laid that he has to resort to joining a leftist kitten-hugger movement and piss off some of his more devoted listeners.

Alas, I may have to revisit my stance on Karma after all.

I wonder what hunter Dick thinks about all this?

Y’all Think Texas Should Secede?

26 04 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.

And let’s not forget their board of education constantly trying to water down evolution and adding in creationism.  Later bitches!  Besides, we can always swing back in and invade to take the oil back when we need to fill up the Hummer.





Teabagging Jokes Just Never Get Old

16 04 2009

Some Fox News sponsored teabagging protests got a little weird yesterday.

Huh…I bet you didn’t see THAT coming did you?

Fox was beating the drum pretty hard to get their viewers all worked up, meanwhile everyone else just yawned and wondered what all the fuss was about.

Then in Lafayette Square the protest was going to dump a load of teabags there but backed out when they were told they didn’t have a permit. Yeah, because you believe SO much in your protest that you wouldn’t want to get a ticket for littering.  Just more yellow elephants I guess.

Teabags? More like Douche bags.





Merry Easter!

Creationist Science: Methods And Procedures

5 04 2009

I stand corrected, creationists do in fact have a strong basis for their scientific theories.  I apologize for doubting all of you out there or for mocking you.  If only I had seen this sooner.

Sadly THIS is even more appropriate now than when I posted it in January. But it’s still a brilliant little song.

Maybe there is something redeeming about religion because this totally made my day.





A Conversation With Catherine

1 04 2009

This comment appeared in my “About Super Jesus” page and I thought it was earnest and polite enough to merit a proper response and thread of its own.  I do hope Catherine will continue the conversation here if she is genuinely interested in persuading me or anyone else of the powers of religion over the failings of science.

Her comment is below:

If you had questions for a scientist regarding creation/evolution what would they be?
Do you think that Science and Religion can coexist?
Do you think one can prove the other and vise versa?
How much faith does the bible say is needed to go to heaven?
In the same way you would expect a scientist to PROVE creation to you, can you PROVE evolution to him.

Here is what I am thinking – You tell me if you are interested in meeting first of all and why. I thought that this would be good because you are scientifically minded.

If you are interested, lets meet some Saturday afternoon.
Bring your questions, not arguments.
Bring your curiosity, not anger
Bring your open-mindedness, and look objectively – not letting the experiences you have had with others ruin the experince you could have with God.
Consider also, that science is not the ONLY domain that TRUTH can be derrived from.
And let’s have some dialog on this topic.
This would not be for the public entertainment of your Super Jesus crowd. I do this because I actually care about you and not for the sake of winning an argument.

There are a lot of people who believe a lot of things blindly. I’m not one of those people.

As a side note: I rather enjoyed Hitchens vs Dinesh D’Souza. I did not see that one published on your site.

Regards,
Catherine

My response, in order:

Q: If you had questions for a scientist regarding creation/evolution what would they be?
A: First, help me understand the current hypotheses regarding the big bang singularity (“creation” if you insist) and how might we test them?  Second, why do you think so many otherwise intelligent people still deny the 150 years of cumulative and corroborative evidence supporting evolution?

Q: Do you think that Science and Religion can coexist?
A: They have so far but I think the more science expands our understanding of our world, and the universe in general, the more threatened religions become thereby making that coexistence a far more tenuous proposition.

Q: Do you think one can prove the other and vise versa?
A: Science could theoretically prove religion, but because religion is based on tenets of faith it, by its very nature, cannot attempt to prove anything.  I should point out that science has, thus far, found no evidence supporting any religious supernatural claims.

Q: How much faith does the bible say is needed to go to heaven?
A: Since the bible has no credibility or authority I don’t believe in heaven, hence this is an irrelevant question.

Q: In the same way you would expect a scientist to PROVE creation to you, can you PROVE evolution to him.
A: I would not expect a scientist to prove “creation” but I would expect him or her to do his or her best to explore the world, catalog facts and evidence, and then provide a best theory that best explains the data and (hopefully) predicts the results of future experiments.

So no I am not interested in meeting at this time, however I am open to an online conversation.  Please do not take offense as I would do this before I would opt to meet with you or anyone asking me the same question out of the blue online. I hope you would do the same.  I think you’re being sincere and I appreciate that you’re being cordial, so while we may disagree I will do my best to address you in kind.  I also strongly encourage anyone else commenting to do the same.

So while you seem to suggest that some uniquely divine truth can be found in (one or more) religions I personally think that the scientific method of inquiry is the only way of accurately determining the true nature of the world around us.  Religion consistently fails in this regard.  As for ethical issues, religion frequently falls far short of secular philosophy as well.

So I know you didn’t want to be entertainment for my readers, but I think this is less entertainment than educational for the few weary internet travelers that stumble across my humble page.  So let the dialog begin.  I await your response.

Super J.

PS: I didn’t watch the Hitchens v. Dinesh D’Souza video because Hitchens is typically an annoyingly pompous ass and D’Souza just makes my brain hurt.  Glad you liked it though.
