Fun to Imagine

I found a great interview the Richard Feynman put on YouTube by ChristopherJSykes about a year ago. I'll put a couple of my favorite bits, it's really worth watching all of them (not more than 10 minutes each).

Stop Me If You've Heard This One...

This is a common thing you hear from, not only creationists but, many theists. Illuminaughty once said that the odds were insane to draw an ace of diamonds so many times in a row from a deck of poker cards and relating that to the odds of our universe occurring "by chance". My reply had something to do with the odds that a god did it were comparable to drawing a picture of his mother naked so many times from the same deck. cdk007 explains it better in this video:

Republicans That are Pro Gang-Rape


Yeah, McCain is one of 'em. So's Kit Bond.

Call and let him know what an asshole he is (220-224-5721). A woman answered when I called and she couldn't tell me why she works for the douche. What the fuck is wrong with people?!

Idiotic things you'll hear from False Witness

"You said sun, i said light and i knew you were twisting the word of GOD to benefit some more haggling out of me."- FalseWitness

If anyone knows what the fuck that means, you're probably retarded.

"Plants dont require sunlight, they just require light to grow."- FalseWitness

Well... that is sad. I'm sure that even a 9 year old could straighten the old False Witness out on THAT bit of idiocy. See how religion is a fucking problem? Plants don't need sunlight to grow, just light? READ A FUCKING 5TH GRADE SCIENCE BOOK, FALSE WITNESS. Try to grow a plant with a flashlight you imbecile. You're talking to someone who has grown his own pot- I know what plants crave (and it's not electrolytes).

A question to a christian, and their christian response:

If your god knows all this scientific shit, why did it make plants before it made the sun?

LilPuss (aka bigdog) says:
1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13And the evening and the morning were the third day.

OK MARCUS!!! YOU ARE A DUMBASS!!!! please show me where GOD made plants before he made light?You have just been found out as a liar.
Spreading falshoods to the informed is dangerous for your character MARCPUSS!!!HAHAHAHA!!! he just got pwned!!

I wonder if there are any ACTUAL christians that can see through this. I asked how his god made plants before the SUN and this scientific genius christian asks me to show him where their god made plants before LIGHT. There's a bit of christian manipulation for you. Now, had the idiot kept copying and pasting just a bit more, he might have seen that his master didn't make the SUN until the 4th day (while the plants were made on the 3rd). Further proof that if someone publicly states they are christian as if it were a virtue, you should just laugh in their face for a few minutes before turning your back to them and walking away. Of course, what should I have expected from someone who believes the entire planet was flooded and only a boatload of life survived and that evolution doesn't happen. I know another part of that book that LilPuss should read- Exodus 20:16. I think that I'll refer to LilPuss (aka bigdog) as the False Witness from now on- he has proven himself to me enough.

Alex Jones goes Super Saiyan

I can admit I was a fan of the old DBZ series back in the 90's. If you've never heard of it, you won't understand the video. Whether you like AJ or not, this is pretty damn funny...

Astronomers count the stars
By Andrew Craig
BBC News

Astronomers in Australia say there are 10 times more stars in the visible Universe than all the grains of sand on the world's beaches and deserts.
From the darkest parts of Earth, the naked human eye can see about 5,000 stars; from a brightly lit city street, only about 100.

The scientists looked at just the visible Universe.But modern telescopes tell a different story.
The Australian astronomers used some of the world's most powerful instruments to measure the brightness of all the galaxies in one sector of the cosmos - and then calculated how many stars they must have contained.
From that measurement, they proceeded to work out a figure for the whole of the visible Universe, which they believe is much more accurate than previous estimates.
That figure - presented to the International Astronomical Union conference in Sydney - is the kind that really can be called astronomical: 70 sextillion, or seven followed by 22 zeroes.
That is more than the total number of grains of sand in all the Earth's beaches and deserts. But that is only the stars in the visible Universe within range of our telescopes.
Dr Simon Driver, of the Australian National University, says the actual total could be much, much bigger still. He believes that many of the stars out there have planets, and some of those probably have life.
But they are so far away from Earth, he says, that we may never be able to contact anyone living on them.

Of course, if that's too much for your mind to handle, you can always think like this fine elected official...

Logic vs. Emotion or Spock vs. Kirk

Ever know someone who was being cheated on, but wouldn't admit it? What is it that makes them overlook the evidence right in front of their face? Emotional attachment. Maybe they think they're in love with the cheater or maybe they're afraid of them or afraid of being alone, whatever the reason, intense emotions are clouding their judgment. This is a problem for many of the religious, as well. Believe it or not, some people still think the global flood story is real. What other explanation for their blatant disregard of scientific facts? Emotions are very important and useful in many areas but not all. Consider Gov. Sanford and how "love" caused him to behave. There are times when you must give logic the louder voice. Intense emotions may help a terminal patient find needed strength but they are no help to the doctor trying to diagnose the problem. Learn to use your emotions and stop letting them use you.

Jephthah and The God of Love

Straight from Judges chapter 11...

In the "Living Word", it comes to pass that the people of Ammon were warring with the people of Israel. Elders are sent from Gilead to the land of Tob to procure the courageous man called Jephthah for battle against Ammon. He agrees to help them, although they had kicked him out of his hometown years ago because his mother was a whore, so long as he gets to be their leader. They agree.
Apparently, Jephthah decides to make a deal with his god of love so he can be victorious in battle. What is this deal? Well, in exchange for victory, Jephthah pledges that the first to greet him out of his front door when he returns home shall be offered as a burnt offering to his god of love. Unfortunately, that means either his wife or only daughter (he has no other children) will be barbequed.
The war goes well for him and he slaughters many men (with love). He returns home, likely hoping his dog hears him approach or a slave will come to greet him but, alas, it is his only daughter who is first out his front door dancing and singing of his victory. Much like Hulk Hogan before a match, upon seeing his daughter, Jephthah tears open his shirt. "Aw, you dummy, you should have sent your mother! Now I gotta cook you! I promised our god of love." he says to his daughter (or something similar). "You promised our god of love what?! Well, give me two months to mourn my virginity (wink, wink)" she asks. Jephthah allows her two months and she wanders around the mountains "mourning" her virginity.
She does return after two months, who knows why, and Jephthah burns her alive. His god of love is pleased because he loves the smell (see Exodus and Leviticus), of all the smells of burning meat, virgin meat is probably the best.
What is the moral of this story? Fuck if I know.

Some biblical context

How do you view the bible?

I've noticed I refer to judaism alot when I start talking about the bible and I don't know if people understand why. I'll try to explain.
Judaism's monotheistic view dominated the region where christianity began so we can skip over the uncountable other religions outside of that region and prior to. The jews and christians agree on most of the Old Testament (not really) the big difference is with the New one. Assuming Yeshua was an actual person, I figure around two thousand years ago, during a period when many jews were in desperate times and searching for their promised messiah, a guy named Jesus appeared on the scene claiming he was King of the Jews (as were other folks). Maybe he was better looking or better learned or maybe he had some powerful backers, whatever the case, he had followers and he travelled around causing a stir. He even got ballsy enough to start going into temple and throwing some old schoolers around. Eventually, he was arrested and sent before Pilate. It may have taken a hundred years or so, but his small following grew after his execution (with help from anti semetic romans) and found themselves at odds with judaism, I think you know where it goes from there. I know that this is waaaaay simplified, but I hope it's good enough to get the picture. I'm sure I'll be going into it more in the future.

"Why so serious?.."

Why is there so much suffering in the world when your all powerful lord can easily end it? Luckily we can ask the bible's version of the man who suffered most. Job.

I think it is important to note that the book of Job was written by at least two different authors. Everyone knows the story of god making a bet with a devil's advocate to get Job to curse god and how the satan made Job suffer all the ways he could think of to no avail. God wins the bet and gives Job all his shit back. However, the middle bit of the story was written by a different author as a kind of conversation between Job and three of his friends regarding Job's suffering (in poetic form). This story ends with Job calling god out, which doesn't go well, and subsequently leaves Job repenting for no apparent reason.

Focusing only on the question of why there is suffering, we get two reasons from Job. One is that god has a heavy gambling addiction- kicked out of every casino in heaven he is forced to make these bets with the satan, the other is...

Let's just stick with blaming it on women and their love of snakes, whaddya say christians?
I will probably be hitting a few more things about Job in the future (there is so much), but I wanted to get this out- MJ's death had me think about the charites he gave to which made me think of all the suffering and reminded me of one of my major questions of the god fallacy. In the meantime, I hope you read about the Ugarit so you can understand the fact that, the poem- the bit with Job and his buddies, never calls god YHWH (the christian god). It is called Eloahh (probably where Allah comes from), Elohiym (the council of gods of the Ugarit of which YHWH was one), or El Shaddai ( I consider to be mother nature). Of course, Wikipedia says there may be a Sumerian source that the entire story of Job was copied from, I haven't looked into that but I think it is likely (as is the case with most of the Old Testament).
