Much more serious than I had anticipated.  Good stuff.

It could have been worse I suppose.  What if they had hung him or used a guillotine?





Long Live Russell’s Blessed Teapot

23 01 2011

From Wikipedia:

Russell’s teapot, sometimes called the Celestial Teapot, Cosmic Teapot or Bertrand’s teapot, is an analogy first coined by the philosopher Bertrand Russell (1872–1970), intended to refute the idea that the philosophic burden of proof lies upon the skeptic to disprove unfalsifiable claims of religions.

Russell’s teapot is essentially used as a metaphorical example that absence of proof is essentially proof of absence.

And I now have a new contender for my first tattoo.





God Hates Fags…Smotes Birds And Fish In Protest

12 01 2011

Honestly this makes exactly as much sense as the rest of the Christian religion.  Even still, you should take this car full of crazy for a spin just to see how she handles.  You won’t be disappointed.  Scared, yes…disappointed, no.

I Guess The Pope Needed Help With His Yule Log

15 12 2010

Some things just defy reason.  To wit, here’s how the Pope apparently likes to celebrate Christmas.

Please comment freely, I’m just too baffled to find anything that could make this any funnier .





Post 2010 Election Perspective

4 11 2010

After such a disappointing election where the forces of fear, bigotry, superstition, and misinformation triumphed over the proponents of hope, compassion, science, and enlightenment I needed a little something to restore my sense of perspective.  If you need a little of the same I strongly recommend you watch this.  It’s all kinds of awesome.

Religions tell children they might go to hell and they must believe…while science tells children they came from the stars and presents reasoning they can believe.

Seriously, these people are promoting some pretty fucked up beliefs.  We’re talking Glenn Beck levels of fucked up.

I do hope he gets better, I so enjoy his insightful arguments.





The End Of God?

23 09 2010


BBC4 September 21, 2010

Historian Dr Thomas Dixon delves into the BBC’s archive to explore the troubled relationship between religion and science. From the creationists of America to the physicists of the Large Hadron Collider, he traces the expansion of scientific knowledge and asks whether there is still room for God in the modern world.

The relationship between science and religion has been long and troubled: from the condemnation of Galileo by the Catholic Church in 17th century Italy, through the clashes between creationism and evolution in 20th century America, right up to recent claims that the universe does not need God.

Delving through the rich archive of programs from Horizon and BBC Science, Thomas Dixon looks at what lies behind this difficult relationship. Using original footage from 1925, he tells the story of John Scopes, a Tennessee teacher who was tried for teaching evolution. He sees the connections between religion and American politics in the story of a more recent court case — the trial of Intelligent Design. He looks at what happens when new scientific discoveries start to explain events that were once seen as the workings of God, and explains how some of our most famous scientists have seen God in the grandest laws of the universe. Finally, he finds intriguing evidence from brain science which hints that even if God doesn’t exist, at least the belief in God is here to stay.
