Fundies are amazing. One time a couple of years ago I was pointing out to one of them that other previous religions had saviors that died and were re-born, whose birthday was December 25th even, gods that said almost the same things as Jesus, such as Tammuz and Mithras and others, and what I got back blew my widdle mind... I've actually heard it more than just the one time since then, too... they were actually so stunningly idiotic as to say that since Christianity was the One True Faith, those other previous faiths *copied Christianity before it even existed!* That since Christianity was so huge and important, reverberations and premonitions of it's glory went back in TIME and so those other previous faiths merely copied it beforehand!

Stunningly stupid. Amazingly gullible. Laughably ridiculous... but they believed it. Somehow.

So I was thinking...  I was wondering what your own stories are of stunning fundie ignorance on proud display.  What was the most ignorant thing that you've ever heard a fundie say? 

Think hard, I know there's so much to choose from.

And to my religious readers, you also may participate, by telling us the dumbest thing an atheist ever said to you, or what you think science is most wrong about, or whatever you think is the dumbest thing about our side of the conversation.

Personally I'm thinking that the dumbest thing we on this side do, is attempt to show your side what isn't dumb.   It's unfair, like asking my pug to do my taxes.....

In continuation....

As usual, but I promise to actually write a post soon.  Been writing other things. 

Ryan, that last link of yours made me sick.  What a shame.  Of course it can't be the religion, just like guns don't kill people and so forth ad nauseum.

These People Vote!

We get the leadership that we deserve.  And that's a scary thing, considering what's at stake...

For instance:

 Donna, Radio Caller, Wants Deer Crossing Signs Moved So Deer Won't Cross Highways (AUDIO)

If we moved deer crossing signs off of highways, deer would finally stop running into oncoming traffic.
That's the complaint one caller in North Dakota aired to the Y94 Playhouse radio station earlier this month.
The woman -- only known as Donna -- was either hoaxing the hosts or really thought that her three deer-related car crashes over the past few years were the result of government posted deer crossing signs posted along high-traffic roads.
"My frustration is that Minnesota and North Dakota departments of transportation would allow these deer crossings in such high traffic areas," she says. "Why are we encouraging deer to cross at the interstate?"
The host replies: "Are you kidding?"
Donna's solution? Putting the warnings in low-traffic areas, like school crossings.
"You seem to be under the misunderstanding that the deer are somehow attracted to the deer crossing sign," the host says.
But Donna appears unfazed by the giggles and snarky responses on air. Listen to the audio in the YouTube clip above and hear the magic for yourself.
UPDATE: The radio station called Donna back days later due to the interest in the original video. She's all red in the face, but she thanked the hosts for not laughing at her -- too much.
"I feel so stupid," she said. "I had no clue that these signs are for us."

Now, she has the sound of a God-fearin' Republican!

Give 'Em Hell, Harry!

"Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home--but not for housing. They are strong for labor--but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage--the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all--but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine--for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing--but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it."

Harry S Truman

Now, that was a smart man.

Dinesh Gets Threshed

 Bill Maher Takes Dinesh D'Souza Apart

It couldn't happen to a nicer person!

I especially like the way that, toward the end, Maher springs a little trap on Dinesh and the poor besotted fool can only stammer and protest... A Thing of Beauty that will be my Joy Forever!

At one point when Dinesh was trying to redefine and parse words, Maher simply asks him the same question that I've asked Eric in many forms:  "How far did you have to go up your ass to pull that out of it?"

New Post

New Post...  more room to comment....

Friday, July 27, 2012

More elbow room....

More discussion of religion with guest star Mike and the usual motley crew....

Hope Eric shows up to lend Mike a hand (without ever acknowledging the fact that they really aren't in agreement on very much)

Eric, you owe us an apology!

(Get it?  Oh, I'm so witty...)

More continuation...

Not posting anything new, just running out of room and so forth...

Thinking about discontinuing this blog, but come to think of it, it seems to be doing that to itself, so maybe I'll just treat it like a slowly dying relative and humor it for as long as it's here...

(I'd miss you all, so that's there too...)

And still more...

Just a continuation of the previous discussion....

Have at it!

More Of The Same....

More on the KCA, religion, apologetics, and illogical beliefs...

Talk amongst yourselves.

R.I.P. K.C.A.

Kalaam is dead, we should not mourn
Nor heap it with deserving scorn
While believers thought it heaven sent
It never was an argument
More of a mixture of truth and lies
A statement of faith in thin disguise
By force of logic fast undone
(It's flaws right there in premise one)

By words alone it conjured forth
The building blocks of matter
One must, in order to believe that
Be madder than a hatter

Thank you and Amen...

Funniest Video Contest, Part II

Funniest Video Contest, Part II

Here's my entry.  It's sophomoric at best, and not that funny until the cat gets involved, but still I though it worthy:


Multiple entries accepted of course, and general consensus chooses the winner, as if we really care...

 So once again, have at it!

And Eric, I hope you can find one out there to throw at us, too.

Just a new post for the next 200 comments, continued from the last.

Incidentally as to the last post, just wanted to re-iterate that you can access comments over the 200 count by pressing the very small and hard to notice link that says 'load more' near the bottom of the page.

Nice design, Blogger!

The Latest Bet

One day not so very long ago, Satan came unto God with a proposal.  A bet.

Satan's bet consisted of God allowing him to whisper into the ears of the clergy of the earth, from the local pastors up to the highest offices in organized Christendom, a message based in Pride and not in Love.   God will allow him, for the purposes of the bet,  to corrupt the hearts of these men (those which could be so corrupted, those weak with Pride) with thoughts of power and fame, and of course, sex and money.  Oh, and guilt and greed.  All of this will God allow Satan do to, in order to test the faith and character of the whole of His believers on Earth, in order to see if the faithful masses huddling in their churches will notice the often drastic changes in the Message, and rightly recognize that their own House has been corrupted by the very Father of Lies.  To determine whether the faithful will temper their love of God and belief in him, with the Divine Gifts of intelligence and perception; whether they love him with not only their hearts, but with their minds as well.

To see whether the strength of their Love for God is coupled with understanding of what that Love means. 

So of course, God allowed this Great Deception of Satan's to occur on Earth, confident in His belief (since He had to suspend His omniscience temporarily in order for Satan to bet with him; Satan is not stupid) that the faithful would fast perceive that the truth of God's love for His children had been perverted even unto the point where it was in actuality reversed and twisted to reflect Satanic and not Divine ideals.

Even unto the point where Hatred was portrayed as Love.   

God was very confident in His children. After all, it was a very blatant and obvious Test.  They'd passed worse ones before. God was very confident.  Even Jesus wanted in. 


So my children, this is the reason that today, sadness reigns in Heaven, and both God and Jesus are weeping...  it being the first such bet God has ever lost. 

(Damned gambling habit!)

Now God has to wear a pink tutu in public.  Sad. 

But not as sad as what's left here on earth.

Satan's winnings.

Too bad God bet the House.

This Just In...

This just in...  surprising no one here.   (It doesn't surprise Eric because he doesn't believe it anyhow)

Nice to see it in the NYT though. 

You know, this isn't psychological mumbo-jumbo.   When one is aware that one is homosexually inclined, and one loathes and despises oneself for it and denies it to one's self as well, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the natural inclination is to be *very* publicly against it.  

I'm just tired of everybody pretending these people aren't sick and that this isn't what's happening.  There's an awful lot of this sort of pathology on the right.  It explains a lot.

"Blogger" Sucks Big Weenie

Yes, this 'blogger' space sucks.  200 comment limit, a load more button that doesn't work, and zero customer support.

So here it is again, room for 200 more.  I'll answer Eric's last post here:

Bad doubts come from pride, or from laziness, while good doubts come from a sincere effort to understand or to seek solutions to one's problems.
Bad doubts? That come from pride?

Pride doesn't cause doubt, you ninny. Pride causes blind belief. Doubt comes from the recognition that all is not right in the religion, that it is not logically consistent, truthful, or indeed, even probable.. And that's always good doubt. Doubts are never bad. One either realizes they were without basis, or that they were. Either way, the truth is found.

To an idiot in a dress, er, a priest, all doubts of faith, are from pride, because to that idiot anyone that doubts the dogma does so in pride, 'thinking they know better than me and the whole church, pfft!' Unless they're silly tame doubts about fine points of the religion, doubts that do not endanger the faith (blind belief) of the person.  Those are no doubt, your 'good doubts' there.  Doubts that do not lead to mental liberation, are your 'good' doubts.  

I find your answer offensive. Not because you try to offend. Because your belief system is offensive to all rational thinking beings.

Just another 200 comments...

A new post so that we can continue the conversation without all the hassle. 

(I will eventually get around to *writing* actual *new* posts, someday)

Thursday, March 15, 2012


Aside from the obvious need to revise this blog every 200 comments, I also have a small thing to say.

Tonight I was pondering why I take Pliny seriously.

No, that's not meant the way it sounds.

When he speaks, I tend to take him, above many others, very seriously.

When I realized the reason why, it rather appalled me.  Or rather, my ego.  Which hey, is me.

I tend to listen to Pliny because every time he says something important to *anyone,* he always says it with an incredible amount of humility. 

That got me to thinking.

I preach a lot about humility, don't I?

I just never saw the ability of real humility to pierce barriers before.


I need some work.

Okay, that's all for now.  Go on with the usual stuff.

Oh, and I'm sorry I tend to be a jerk sometimes.  I'll work on it.


Oh, and Pboy, wtf is wrong with you?  Or is that me?  Anyhow, prodigal son, come home and I'll slay the fatted calf and you can have your sister if you can get her drunk enough.

(Just wanted to keep this Biblically accurate and all)

The Lucky Negro

Just a short post this time.

This situation with Gignritch and Romney is very interesting. It seems to me that they are almost unbelievaly starting to destroy the eventual primamry winner's chances in the general election. All the while, Obama is starting to rise, or perhaps I should say, rise faster since he has been rising a bit in recent weeks...

What I particularily like is how the two of them, Fatso and Ken, are making each other look so amazingly incompetent. Moon bases and an eventual Lunar State, claiming the moon basically for the US? All that is going to do with your base of bottom-feeding vindictive ignoramuses is infuriate them! They HATE science! And now they think that you're a total flake! Which, hey, you are!
Or would you prefer the Incredile Plastic Man with the ever-shifting stance on every issue that exists, who couldn't personify the uncaring rich more if he wore a monacle and a top hat? His version of 'I feel your pain' is 'I feel the pain of all those poor corporate people, who are more people than real people are, making their pain so much worse!'

Plus, both of them are lying and getting caught in lies here, each and every day, which eventually even percolates down through a christian mind shield if it's apparent and obvious enough. Which these are. Right now, the two of them both look like screaming liars and utter hypocrites. More so than usual even, I mean.

Plus plus, and to me this is the sweetest part, the economy is improving in spite of all the best (worst) efforts of the republicans to keep it in a stinking mess!

And if that is happening, noody's going to come close to Obama in the general. They'll have no chance.

How did Barack Hussein Obama ever get so lucky?

Anyhow, assuming that Obama wins again, can you even *imagine* the rage and frustration on the religious right? They'll be gnawing off their own feet! The whole tea party will dissolve down into a pool of it's own rancid venom...

I can't wait!
