More Prophet Muhammad Cartoon Madness

12 05 2010

NOTE: I’ve updated this post to add even more pictures of the Prophet Muhammadcafter the horrific attacks against Charlie Hebdo. I promise I’ll continue to accumulate and display as many pictures as I can find every time any of these psychopathic extremist cowards attack anyone who would draw a picture of their imaginary friend. You’re welcome.

So once again Muslims have lost all sense of rational thought and gone berzerk.

Yesterday the Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, who sparked controversy by drawing the Prophet Mohammed on the body of a dog, was attacked. Here’s the video.

Here are is the image that Lars drew that made these devout followers of the “religion of peace” come unhinged.

Now I can understand a newspaper editor somewhere being upset that the cartoon is poorly drawn and as funny as The Family Circus, but how is that rubbish worth even getting a little upset over?

I mean compared to some of the other choice pictures of the Prophet Muhammad I think this one is barely distinguishable and therefore a pretty weak bit of chicken scratch to be getting all worked up over don’t you think?

Now these other pictures…well I can totally understand wanting to go berserk over these.

Here’s the ironic part, as far as I know the Quran itself does not explicitly forbid images of Muhammad.  Seriously, go look it up.  There are a few supplemental hadith that have been written that explicitly prohibit Muslims from creating visual depictions of religious figures (including Muhammad) but since I’m not a Muslim I’m pretty sure I’m not even breaking those rules.

But this isn’t about the rules.  This isn’t even about a paradoxical god who is apparently omnipotent enough to know that I re-posted these pictures but too impotent to do anything about it himself.  No, this is about religious leaders getting their followers offended and incensed over nonsense slights in an attempt to misdirect the conversation away from the corruption of the leaders and the implausibility of their religion.  All religions do this to one degree or another, it’s just that many Islamic leaders go way too far and goad their followers to murder.

I personally suspect that 99.9999% of Muslims would not even contemplate killing someone who drew (or displayed) these cartoons on the Internet.  If that’s true then the only people I’m offending are the .0001% of Muslims who are irrational fanatical zealots who frankly should be mocked and ridiculed for holding such ridiculous beliefs. So mock and ridicule I shall.

By remaining silent in the face of such absurdity is to concede to their madness, and I will not.  In doing so I hope to plant a seed of doubt in the believer’s mind that maybe all all these “truths” are simply ridiculous old stories which have no basis in reality and should be ignored.

It probably won’t work, but I somehow feel the need to at least try.





Churches In Saudi Arabia And Bad Math

26 11 2009

A fascinating bit of logic for your Thanksgiving torpor.  Check this out, apparently you can’t build any non-Muslim places of worship in Saudi Arabia because (obviously) all religions other than Islam are false.  As means of explaining his point Dr. Zakir Naik compared this to choosing to hire math a teacher who cannot add.

Right doc, except in reality all of the religious “math teachers” in your example are adding 2+2…and coming up with fractions.  You ignorant knob.

What kind of doctor is this clown anyhow?

U.N. Bans Mocking Stupid Asshat Religions

27 03 2009

Yesterday the most ironic proposal to ever come from a “Human Rights Council” sought legal protection for religion from criticism.  That’s right, the U.N.’s top human-rights body is asking states to provide “protection against acts of hatred, discrimination, intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation of religions and incitement to religious hatred in general.”

Who would be so absurd to push for such a preposterously stupid resolution? The bombastically ridiculous Muslims of course.

“Defamation of religions is the cause that leads to incitement to hatred, discrimination and violence toward their followers,” Pakistan’s ambassador Zamir Akram said.

“It is important to deal with the cause, rather than with the effects alone,” he said.

Of course ambassador Akram couldn’t be bothered to actually follow the causal link all the way back to the real root cause…the asshats who follow and perpetuate the violent ignorance of dark age religions like Islam and Christianity. That would make way too much sense.

Muslim nations went on to whine absurdly that religions, and in particular their especially backward religion of Islam, must be shielded from criticism in the media and other areas of public life.  Apparently even a cartoon of their Prophet Muhammad would upset their astonishingly frail minds.

“Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”

Oh Islam, you ARE so funny aren’t you?

How about this?  …Fuck No!

When all you religious fundamentalists and zealots come to your senses and cease to mutter to yourselves plead and pray to your invisible gods we will then, and only then, stop making fun of you. Until such time you are the crazies those of us in the reality based world will attempt to rescue from your self inflicted delusions.  We will sometimes use humor and ridicule in the effort to point out how profoundly absurd your beliefs are.  Sadly, until you wake up you will probably be offended,but if it makes you feel any better we are ultimately doing it for your own good.  (Well, and ours too)

We can always use a few more rational thinkers, so join us, the logic is fine.

…or not.





A Movie The Religious Will Cower From

7 06 2008

However if the religious out there do accidentally see it (funny, I thought this was the theater for Narnia) there will be a lot of people saying “Well my religion makes perfect sense  …but boy all those OTHER religions sure are silly.”

Um, right.





The End of the World Cometh!

7 06 2008

Heads up all you evangelicals, he very well could be right and this could be the BIG one. If he’s right and you don’t convert soon you will get left behind and suffer the consequences! REPENT NAOW!!!!

Yeah, that pitch sounds a little silly to you coming from the other direction doesn’t it? Welcome to my world.





Today’s Irreconcilable Religious Factoid: Noah and the Flood

6 06 2008

Today I ask the faithful the question:

“Do you believe the story of Noah and the flood? Why or why not?”

Sounds simple enough, but I imagine there is a broad spectrum of opinions on this well known story.  Not to ruin the surprise but I think the story is completely ridiculous.  I know, you’re shocked to hear that.  But I’ve heard young earthers talk about the flood in the context of ridding the earth of dinosaurs and creating the Grand Canyon.  Hell, there’s a whole section of the creationist museum in Cincinnati devoted to convincing people that the Noah story is true.

So c’mon people, what am I missing here?  Convince me God pulled off this amazing story…or are you just going to wuss out and tell me this is yet another example of the Bible teaching in parables?

Evangelically yours (in a completely heterosexual way),
