Rabbi Ovadia Yosef: Shut Your Matzah Hole Already

Last Saturday night Rabbi Ovadia Yosef stated the following in his weekly televised "sermon" in Israel:

"Is it any wonder if, heaven forbid, soldiers are killed in a war?" he said, "when they don't observe the Sabbath, they don't observe the Torah, they don't pray every day, they don't put on phylacteries every day. Is it any wonder that they're killed? It's no wonder......God helps soldiers who have faith and who pray. They are not killed."

This comment is beyond idiocy, and I think 99% of the total population of Jews on this planet believe Yosef to be a stark raving lunatic. His comments have caused outrage in Israel, but it isn't the first time this prehistoric imbecile has disgraced himself with his words and views. In 2000 he stated the following:

"the 6 million Holocaust victims were reincarnations of the souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done. They had been reincarnated in order to atone."

In a world void of evidence of any God, the statements are farcical and insensitive. Even if one assumed God existed, who in their right mind would want to worship his God? Why does such a spectacular God need to be worshiped so heavily? Yosef's God is as spiteful as he is insecure.

This idiot Rabbi is a disgrace to thinking Jews everywhere, and of course humankind.

Jackie Mason On Political Correctness

I've always thought Jackie Mason is one of the funniest humans around. He does bi-weekly videos on Youtube, as the Ultimate Jew. Here is one of his latest:

Of course, there are times when stalking is stalking and name calling is just hate oriented plain and simple, but Jackie does have a point.
I usually agree with Jackie around 80-90% of the time. Sometimes he is contradictory, but that is common with comedians.
I have to wonder what the white supremacists think of this video, since Jackie is a Jew and all. They are so paranoid, that even though he is voicing part of their views here, I have a feeling they will come up with something like: "this is how Jews brainwash the masses. They pretend to take your cause, so that you'll look up to them and admire them to the point that you let them control you. And then they'll continue on with their goal of wiping out the white culture."

T.Rex Could Outrun Humans: How Can Dr. Dino Explain That

'Phil Manning, a paleontologist at the University of Manchester, and his colleague Bill Sellers, a biomechanics expert, used a supercomputer to calculate the top-running speeds of five meat-eating dinosaurs.'

Apparently T-Rex's are slightly faster than humans (not sure about endurance figures which are a factor in long chases).

Here are some of the computer generated results:

* Compsognathus (6.6 pounds, 3 kilograms)—39.8 mph (17.8 m/s)
* Ostrich (144 pounds, 65.3 kg)—34.5 mph (15.4 m/s)
* Emu (60 pounds, 27.2 kg)—29.8 mph (13.3 m/s)
* Velociraptor (44 pounds, 20 kg)—24.2 mph (10.8 m/s)
* Dilophosaurus (948 pounds, 430 kg)—23.5 mph (10.5 m/s)
* Allosaurus (3,087 pounds, 1,400 kg)—21 mph (9.4 m/s)
* Tyrannosaurus (13,230 pounds, 6,000 kg)—17.9 mph (8 m/s)
* Human (157 pounds, 71 kg)—17.7 mph (7.9 m/s)

And here is a short video comparing humans to dinosaurs.

According to Dr. Dino (Kent Hovind), one of the leading "creation scientists" in the world (currently in jail doing a 10 year sentence for 58 tax offenses, obstructing federal agents and related charges), dinosaurs lived side by side humans from the beginning of the earth and the universe around 6,000 years ago to today. Yes, some dinosaurs are still amongst us according to Dr. Dino.

The problem is that many dinosaurs (at least those in the past who lived before the Flood wiped them out) had sharp teeth and liked meat.

How did humans survive the earth prior to the flood? T.Rex's could outrun us, and many other meat eating dinosaurs could easily outrun us. Here are a few possible excuses that creationist could use:

1) Maybe we don't taste good. (God made us give dinosaurs very bad stomach aches and they figured out that they better just leave us alone).

2) Humans of course, mostly hung out in caves. And T-Rex's and other dinosaurs were too big to get into the caves.

3) There is no proof that dinosaurs were nothing but herbivores.

4) From Raving Atheist member Kamikaze189: Adam didn't have to run faster than the T-Rex, he just had to run faster than Eve.
There. Easily explained.
And, um, god cloned her again later.

Any other ideas?

OK, here is a video that slams Kent Hovind and his idiocy:

Christiane Amanpour Should Go Back To Iran And Be A Weather Girl

I watched God's Warriors, "the Jews killed Jesus and would have killed Mohammed too if they had their way" version.

I really can't believe how one sided it was.

Look, I'm no fan of land promised by God, but I've made it clear that Israel was formed legally, and it needs to exist as a Jewish majority state as long as anti-semitism is alive in the world. I have compared radical Jewish settlers to Muslims on a few occasions here on this blog. It was embarrassing to see how they behaved towards the IDF and the state last year in Amona for example.

That being said, last nights documentary was despicable. The points that got to me were the following:

There have been less than 5 acts of terrorism carried out in Israel by Jews over the last 50 years. Of course, they were all else are you going to fill 2 hours on "Jewish terrorism."

But there was not a word mentioned about how the majority of the Jewish people were disgusted by the acts or attempted acts. There was no mention that the terrorists involved were jailed by the state for crimes either. Of course, imbecile Baruch Goldstein didn't live so he was exempt from jail.

The documentary focused on how the settlements are the major obstacle to peace. The documentary inferred that Israel does not want peace.
There was no mention that the settlements were not an obstacle at all between 1948-1967. There was no mention about the Gaza withdrawal. No mention of the aftermath of that event (the bombs being lobbed into Israel almost daily).

God's Warriors gave the impression that Israel is completely about religion, yet the majority of Jews in Israel are secular. 20%-25% are atheist, and up to another 25% are agnostic. Israel happens to be a place where Jews know they can at least be treated as equals, where no one will look at your name or face and think or say "are you a Jew."

If religious Jews are such a problem, why are they not a problem all over the world?
No, just Israel, where tensions are high. Lets look at Islam. Oh, that will be tonight.

Amanpour devoted a good chunk of the documentary to Aipac. Again, many secular, agnostic, and atheist Jews in America support Israel. Aipac is not about religion. Wrong show.

Then to lie and state that the settlements upset the Muslim world. Wrong. It is the existence of Israel that upsets the Muslim world. The existence of the Muslim world upsets me, but I'm not going to blow myself up over it.

Tonight the topic is Islam. If she spends more than 2 minutes apologizing for radical Islam or spends more than a second talking to "moderate" Muslims, she and whoever was associated with the show should be fired immediately.

Last nights piece really bothers me, because anyone with very little clue about the conflict will walk away from the TV set thinking Jews are as maniacal collectively as Muslims and that Israel shouldn't exist.

One thing is for sure: Jews don't control the media.

Youtube has last nights show up in parts.

How Can You Argue With Pat Condell? You Just Can't.

Pat Condell is more popular than least on Youtube. Here, he is telling the truth about Islam and Europe again:

Now for something less logical but guaranteed to make you laugh real good....unless you are an uptight Muslim:

Yeah yeah I know, many Christians and Fundy Jews are just as bad when it comes to homosexual bashing.

I'm really getting lazy with this blog. I need more different motivation. Things are pretty good right now in Canada when it comes to us atheist Jews.

Quick Edit. I just thought of a great joke for Leno or Letterman:

Michael Vick is writing a new book. It is called If I Did Kill Dogs.

Critical/Flawed Thinker Out To Lunch About Atheists

I was browsing through one of my favorite new resources, POPURLS, when I came across a post named Atheists vs. Agnostics vs. Religionists- Or Are They All The Same?

The post is full of flawed premises, half truths, and revisionist history. The blog writer of Duly Consider prides himself on being a Critical Thinker. He even taught Critical Thinking abroad. This self acclaimed intellectual calls atheism a religion. He is apparently an expert Flawed Thinker. But he invents meanings for words, so maybe critical=flawed to him just like atheism= a religion to him.

Without slaughtering the post line by line (the Hippie movement for example may not have been churchgoing, but they were all about "God Is Love; not Pacifist atheists for the most part), I've decided to just explain why atheism has gained popularity of late.

Up until recently, few would dare state they were atheist. Rob Reiner's character (Mike Stivic), was probably the first TV atheist, though very little story line revolved around it. Back then more than now, atheists tended to use the rejection of the God in the bible as a defense. Personally, I don't bother with that stuff, because as more evidence comes out due to scientific breakthroughs and archaeological discoveries, not only do all the bibles have nonsensical contradictions, but most of the events that supposedly took place could never have the Ark and the Exodus. The word of God is just the word of man written hundreds of years after the "fact."

TV was full of religious programs on Sunday mornings in the 60's. God was everywhere (though rarely mentioned in popular sitcoms like Gilligan's Island, Batman, Bewitched, etc.) How come they never prayed to get off the Island? OK, I'm getting off topic.

It was really television and real science that has created today's atheist movement.
Star Trek got everyone thinking about life on other planets and the size of the universe, and really the meaning of everything. In fact, for me, I can say that Marvin the Martian got me thinking too. As a kid, it got me wondering why is religion needed, what miracles did God perform on Mars? What church did Marvin go to?

Lets not forget that the Big Bang, is a fairly new theory that came about in the early 60's. Shows like Nova constantly contradicted the idea of any biblical God. As all the facts came about, including all discoveries that confirmed evolution throughout the 70's and 80's, more and more atheists were being created (I was probably agnostic until I hit my early 30's). I became an atheist because of information.

Atheists actually had evidence versus lack of evidence to make them feel more comfortable about their overall gut feeling about the bibles being fiction.

The Christian Right started to offend a more defiant group of non believers. The more they stated evolution didn't happen, the more I personally read about evolution, and the more sure I became that THEY ARE JUST PLAIN WRONG. And when they want to push their nonsense into schools and other public places, the more offensive they became.

The thing is that ATHEISTS KNOW THEY (me included) ARE RIGHT.

The article states that the religious war (Christians versus Muslims) Iraq war caused angry atheists to become outspoken today. Wrong. I'm an atheist, and I realize that the war with Iraq is not a religious one, but a cultural one. It was inevitable that the West was going to fight a Muslim country, just like it was inevitable that someone was going to use the A-bomb when it was discovered.

The reason atheists have become outspoken today is because of the internet. The internet has given us a platform to point out views, and the flaws of religious thought and most importantly, action.

Fun With Generators

I like going to The Generator Blog once in a while to see what is new. After seeing a few fellow bloggers post their South Park character and Simpson's character, I decided to do mine.

I didn't see any way to make me an adult with the South Park generator, but I didn't look too hard, and apparently there is more than one site that does it according the sidebar on The Generator Blog, but then again, I wish I was 14 again anyway. I had perfect eyesight back then, so the glasses wouldn't have been needed, oh yeah, I almost forgot, I had hair then too.

Dear Fundamentalists:

I decided to do a short video asking religious Fundamentalists (anyone who thinks that a belief in God, or the ultimate existence of God, is needed to stop them from being evil and wicked. I used the ultimate atheist song in the background:

What else?

I just found out I got Punk'd by an internet site called Net Authority. I noticed I got a few hits on my Judeophobe Watch blog from Net Authority, so I checked out why:

Judeophobe Watch

Added: 08/02/2007 - 19:39:51

This website has been investigated by Net Authority, and has been found to be in violation of the Internet Acceptable Use Policy by posting the following kinds of content:

* Hateful material
* Blasphemy
* Offensive political material

Be cautioned! This website contains strongly offensive material and is not suitable for young children. Click the link below at your own risk:

I checked out Net Authority's Violation Rule page. This rule made me laugh, but it still seemed like a legit Fundy site:

Example #2: Children's Dinosaur Stories. You might think that a site that contains stories about dinosaurs for children would be innocent—but let's stop and think about that for a moment. If you read the bible (you should, it's great!) you know that dinosaurs never actually existed, and that God put those fossils and bones there to test our faith in Him. While the stories themselves may not contain any offensive material, the simple fact that they are about dinosaurs may cause a child to question his faith in the one true God. By blaspheming, this site is in violation of the Internet Acceptable Use Policy and should be added to our database.

I decided to bring this to the attention of Raving Atheist and asked "Is This A Joke?"

A couple of RA members came to my aid, and proved the site is total satire. The guy who runs the site is an atheist. He is demonstrating Poe's Law:

Similar to Murphy's Law, Poe's Law concerns internet debates, particularly regarding religion or politics.

"Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won't mistake for the real thing."

I became familiar with the Poe's Law when someone left a comment on my Youtube video (More Proof Evolution Is Wrong) where I made mocked the video Peanut Butter: The Atheist's Nightmare. I Punk'd quite a few non believers with my video. What goes around, comes around, I guess.

The guy from Net Authority also has a comic strip. Very funny. Check it out.

Is Youtube Really Atheist Tube?

I've noticed a big trend on Youtube: When an atheist video comes out, the video is usually highly rated and has many views, but when a creationist bs video comes out, it get a very low rating and usually a lot less views, unless it is ridiculously funny as well as just ridiculous.
Here is an example of what I'm talkin bout. Pat Condell, the British comedian, has been gaining a large following. His latest video, "God Bless Atheism" was released on August 3rd and now (as of 7 am EST on Aug 5th) has received close to 20,000 views and almost 1500 ratings, mostly 5 out of 5's:

H/T God Is For Suckers

He is funny and charming and very likable overall, but 20,000 views in two days? Either Youtube has become taken over by us atheists, or there are a lot more atheists in the world and especially the USA than what the surveys have to offer.

Theory one is plausible, since it is a well known fact that many Jews and gays took off to Hollywood to both escape persecution and be with their own kind almost since the birth of Hollywood. It was a place that didn't judge a Jew or gay for being a Jew or gay, as long as the Jews changed their names and gays didn't come out in the media. So it makes sense that atheists have congregated to Youtube, though we are often judged by the theist minority there.

Theory two is also plausible. I think there a lot more people who have figured out that there is no evidence of God and that it is highly probable that God does not exist (the true definition of an atheist). There is still a stigma attached to admitting to someone doing a poll that one is an atheist. Though the stigma is starting to disappear thanks to the likes of Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens, oh and YOUTUBE.
