What Stevie Johnson Should Have Learned

In case you haven't heard, yesterday, during the Buffalo Bills/Pittsburgh Steelers NFL football game, a Bills wide receiver, Stevie Johnson, dropped an easy to catch ball in the end zone during overtime. Pittsburgh went on to win.

He Tweeted the following after the game:

The list of what Stevie should have learned is quite large. Here are a few off the top of my head:

1. It is hard to praise the Lord and catch a ball at the same time. Cut down the praising to a maximum of 24/6. After all, Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest for the Zombie worshipers.

2. Stevie had a three touchdown day the week before, and yesterday he dropped 5 balls, catches that my border collie would have made. This is evidence that either God bet on the Bills one week, and bet against them the next, or that God, even if one were to exist, doesn't give a crap about football, or the most likely of scenarios, that God does not exist, so Stevie should stop wasting his time worshiping.

3. Stevie should have learned that you need to focus on catching the ball regardless of who is helping him or not helping him. The week prior it was Stevie who caught those balls, and yesterday it was Stevie who dropped them. Quit shifting responsibility where it doesn't belong, that is far Lefty thing to do. See, the far Left and the Religious Right have more in common than you would normally think.

In closing, Stevie, if you read this, don't give up on learning, give up on praying, it is totally unnecessary.

What is a Tea Partier?

I was asked what is the Tea Party today by my wife. She doesn't pay any attention to politics, especially US politics. I think she knows the USA has a relatively young black President and she can probably name him. But that is about it.

The question made me stumble for an answer. But I finally gave one. A Tea Partier is someone who says they want governmental change. Most of them say they want the government to stop spending and have less power over the individual. But most of them wouldn't have a problem if the government were to make it mandatory to teach creationism in schools and ban abortion.

Most of them have no idea what governments do or have a clue about Economics 101. And most of them are just looking for an excuse to get rid of a black President.

That is my answer, and I'm sticking to it.

Lets Forget Our Differences For A Minute

Whether you are an atheist, a young earth creationist, an Israeli, a Palestinian, a member of the Tea Party (oh wait I might have covered that one), a Democrat, a Marxist, a member of the GOP (might have covered that one three times now), a peaceful Muslim, a radical Muslim, tall, short, thin, fat, straight, openly gay, a closeted homophobe (I might have covered this one four times), etc., etc., etc., I really believe that this will bring an awe inspired smile to everyone.  Call it faith in mankind, or just call it entertainment:

Skeptics Who Try To Refute The Supernatural In The Bibles Crack Me Up

The only time that supernatural events ever occurred on this planet supposedly only happened during biblical times, oh and before biblical times, just over 6,000 LOL years ago.

Anyone who has turned water into wine since then has been an obvious fake or magician just playing games with our senses.

Now of course, anyone who has read my blog regularly knows that I don't believe that much of anything written in the Old Testament or New Testament ever happened. The closest either bible comes to reality are the events outlined just prior to the OT being written (around 500 BC or so).

There is absolutely no contemporary evidence which remotely verifies a historical Jesus, a historical Abraham, and a historical Moses.

That is why I just laugh when I read stories about people who think they know how Jesus walked on water without it being a supernatural occurrence.

I just read an article speculating on how the Sea parted for Moses.

I believe it has something to do with early brainwashing most of us are exposed to. We actually assume the bible stories to be based on a majority of facts.

This is completely the farthest thing from the truth. If anything the bible stories are based on a minority of facts, and I'm being kind.

This brainwashing creates a different type of skeptic. Someone who is doubtful of supernatural events, yet "smart" enough to figure out how it really LOL happened using physical laws.

OK, I'm not trying to be condescending here. The first forty years of my life I assumed there was a historical Jesus and a historical Moses. But it only takes a teeny amount of research to find there is no credible contemporary evidence, and the only logical conclusion is that Jesus and Moses and their stories were complete fabrications. Unless you take the willfully ignorant route that is, which the majority of people do.

To me, figuring out how Moses got the Sea to part is exactly the same as trying to figure out how the Cat spoke in The Cat In The Hat.

Burning The Koran And The Ground Zero Mosque

President Obama went out of his way to beg Terry Jones not to burn Korans on September 11th. Why? Because apparently this will upset Radical Muslims, and it will upset moderate Muslims too. However, upsetting the majority of Americans with the building of the Muslim community center/Mosque overlooking Ground Zero is not that big a deal.

Now the Imam behind the Mosque is saying that not building the Mosque will cause Radical Islam to get stronger.

I look at it like this, if Radical Islamists get this emotional over either of these issues, then going ahead with the Mosque and not going ahead with the Koran burnings will be looked at as a victory by these scourges of humanity.

A victory is the best tool of recruitment. It means it could be looked at a cool thing to continue threatening and carrying out terrorist acts.

I don't think there is a way to win here. No matter what happens, it turns out to be a tool for Radical Islam to get stronger. The only answer is to fight the scourge and defeat the scourge.

As for burning the Koran, or any religious book for that matter, I have no problem with it. Whether it is for fun or to prove a point. They are fictional books, and I'm convinced that without religious garbage the world would be a much nicer place.

The reality is that the same laws of the land that enable the Mosque to be built legally are in place to burn the Korans legally. I think anyone is for one and not the other is a hypocrite. If it is legal it is legal. End of story.
