Don't Let The Left Bring The Rational Right's Guard Down

Thanks to regular reader Heartlander for bringing a couple of links to my attention. The first is from Israpundit: Islam’s ‘Plan’ To Take Over the USA in twenty years. Note: The article is almost 3 years old; so there is only 17 years left in Islam's plan.

The second link is from Little Green Footballs here is a video which shows Libya's Muammar Gaddafi making no bones about how he expects Muslims to take over the world. Europe first, of course.

Check out My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy's take on Rantings of a Sandmonkey's post on why America will lose the War on Terror.

And for some absolute fun visit Desecrate Holy Books: The New Blasphemy. Here is a video he made that is sure to piss off a certain group of people who get pissed off really easy:

Happy National Prayer Day

Womans and mans prayer

Woman's Prayer
Before I lay me down to sleep, I pray for a man, who's not a creep
One who is handsome, smart and strong. One who loves to listen long.
One who thinks before he speaks. When he says he'll call, he won't wait

I pray that he is gainfully employed. When I spend his cash, he won't be

Pulls out my chair and opens my door. Massages my back and begs to do more.

Oh! Send me a man who'll make love to my mind, Knows what to answer to "How
big is my behind?"

I pray that this man will love me to no end, And never attempt to hit on my


I pray for a deaf-mute nymphomaniac with huge boobs who owns a liquor store
and a boat.

"Basically, I'm for anything that gets you through the night - be it prayer, tranquilisers or a bottle of Jack Daniels."
-Frank Sinatra

"Why do I pray? Because I never know what's going to pop out of my mouth."
-Kathie Lee Gifford

"Most people do not pray; they only beg."
-George Bernard Shaw

"I don't pray because I don't want to bore God."
-Orson Welles

"Prayer has no place in the public schools, just like facts have no place in organized religion."
- School Superintendent on "The Simpsons"

I'm Saddam, The Ardent Atheist

The Ardent Atheist
The results are in, and it appears that you have scored 67%...
You are an atheist, pure and simple. You think God is just one big lie, and consider religious people to be both annoying and beneath you. Ardent atheists will argue tooth and claw for their position, and have no truck with people that won't listen. You think being an atheist is the only way to lead an honest life, and see no reason to accept the pleas of faith. Ardent atheists are the backbone of atheism. Be proud.

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 43% on pentagrams

I didn't realize I was such a nasty Atheist. Not that it bothers me or anything. I don't think believers who also accept evolution and an ancient earth are "that" beneath me though.

Just a bit of a warning, there are thirty questions, it was sort of fun answering many of them, but they do ask for a valid email at the end of the quiz.

If you really want to just shake your head at stupidity check out the Ray Comfort Atheist Test.

Ray is the guy who hangs with Kirk Cameron, as they continue lying for Jesus.

Check out this video at Crazy World as Kirk and Ray show that the banana is the Atheist's worst nightmare, and "proves" that God exists. I would love to see them prove God exists using an acorn or a coconut.

Here is the video:

These Tests Don't Lie. I Must Accept The Truth.

I hated this answer so much that I did the test over again. The first time I only did the 27 question version. The second time I did it by answering the maximum 45 questions. I still wound up being the same leader. Well, at least he likes Sinatra too. His favorite song is Strangers In The Night:

Hat tip to The Wrightwing.


According to the Brussels Journal: Spain May Grant Human Rights to Apes.

The Spain Herald reports that the bill is calling for "the immediate inclusion of (simians) in the category of persons, and that they be given the moral and legal protection that currently are only enjoyed by human beings."
I see nothing wrong with this. Of course, the intentions have to do with habitat and animal protection. But I wonder if passed, do the implications also include housing, wages and even same sex marriage.

This stuff really must piss off the Christian Right especially. It is a total recognition on how closely related humans are to chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas and orangutans. The evolutionary and genetic similarities between man and ape are too obvious to a thinking man.
Click cartoon below to enlarge:

Fundies really hate the fact that is evolution. Our common ape ancestor appeared around 25 million years ago. Between then and around 5 million years the ancestor of human beings appeared. 99% of all species go extinct, so there were probably lots of variations in the ape family, including the extinct Neanderthal man.
Interestingly, humans share 98.4% of our genes with chimpanzees, 97.7% with gorillas, and 96.4% with orangutans. And the sequence of their appearance on the planet is predictable by evolution theory. Chimps the closest relation(other than bonobos) to humans appeared 5 million years ago, gorillas appeared 7 million years ago and orangutans, 8 million years ago.
The bonobos evolved from chimps between 2 and 2.5 million years ago, and they have evolved into the most similar species to humans.

I like how Amnesty International has a hard time dealing with this. They have no problem supporting terrorists who strap on suicide bombs. But they have a problem with banana eaters who don't blow up innocents.

Why not give these apes the same human rights we give the minors, the mentally handicapped and the Christian Fundies get? Apes are our cousins and man is driving many of them into extinction. And they are helpless. They need our support. I'm glad Spain is taking notice.

Here is more info about great ape extinction.
