It Is Bad To Group All Muslims Together, But......

Artwork by D.T.Devareaux

There is no doubt that 9/11 put Muslims on the radar screen. Even with me, I really didn't know much about the Muslim religion or anything about their goals. In fact, I'll admit, I wasn't really very knowledgeable about geography. I didn't know much about politics either. I did know a bit about the conflict in Israel, but really not a heck of a lot. It was Arabs against the Jews.

Before 9/11, I was mostly focused on the business world and my hobbies. I wasn't even into Atheist material, and I probably would have said I was Agnostic back then. But things change. I went from the corporate business world in a large city to a home office in a small town, which afforded me more time to learn and think about the world and life. It was right at this time 9/11 happened.

All of a sudden, I was inundated with information, and I started digging deeper and deeper. I'm pretty smart, it didn't take me long to catch up on where Saudi Arabia and Iraq are on a map. I've started to learn about Darfur, about other conflicts on the planet, and guess what? Most involve pissed off Muslims.

But here is the thing. I hear what different people say the Muslims want. I hear hardcore Islamophobes, I hear Muslim apologists, I hear Jews, I hear just about everyone. The bottom line is that Muslim have a pretty bad reputation right now. And it is hard not to lump most of them together. Take Israel for instance. I'm very confident that Israel is a heck of a lot more in the right than the Palestinians are. This is based on fact and logic. Yet I rarely if ever have seen one Muslim state this. They all support the Palestinians. You know, the ass monkeys who handed out candy on 9/11, who regularly use suicide bombings against innocents to show the world how retarded they are. I could see if 75% of Muslim support the Palestinians and 25% support Israel, that I shouldn't lump Muslim together, but 99.9% support the Palestinian. Is it out of hatred of the West and/or Israel, or is it out of love of their brothers(It isn't love as the Palestinians have been treated as pawns by other Arab countries). So the mindset is pretty much into hate and resentment, not fact and logic. They peddle around the lie that Israel is on Palestinian land. A lie that many Moonbats have bought into, and of course Jew haters have no problem buying it either. And notice, you never hear a peep about Darfur from Muslims. At least I don't.

If the Muslim mindset can rationalize so much hate, and are so one-sided in their causes, and have priorities that screwed up, perhaps they deserve the bad rap.

Here are five questions that were posed in the LA Op Ed section in November during the French car burning riots:

(1) Why are you so quiet (in speaking out and/or demonstrating against terrorist acts)?

(2) Why are none of the Palestinian terrorists Christian?

(3) Why is only one of the 47 Muslim-majority countries a free country?

(4) Why are so many atrocities committed and threatened by Muslims in the name of Islam?

(5) Why do countries governed by religious Muslims persecute other religions?

I'm adding a 6th. What is a bigger crisis to you: Darfur or Israel, and why?

This article was posted before the cartoon Jihad. Obviously, the Muslims are capable of making a lot of noise if they feel strongly about something. This leads me to the conclusion that cartoons of Mohammed are a much larger issue than complaining about car bombs to most Muslims.

I hope the following isn't what Muslims really want in North America. From The Messengers of Allah:

What the Muslims Want

This is the question asked most frequently by both the whited and the blacks. The answers to this question I shall state as simply as possible.

1. We want freedom. We want a full and complete freedom.

2. We want justice. Equal justice under the law. We want justice applied equally to all, regardless of creed, or class, or color.

3. We want equality of opportunity. We want equal membership in society with the best in civilized society.

4. We want our people in America whose parents or grandparents were descendants from slaves, to be allowed to establish a separate state or territory of their own...either on this continent or elsewhere. We believe that our former slave masters are obliged to provide such land and that the area must be fertile and minerally rich. We believe that our former slave masters are obligated to maintain and supply our needs in this separate territory for the next 20 to 25 years...until we are able to produce our own needs.

Since we cannot get along with them in peace and equality, after giving them 400 years of our sweat and blood, and receiving in return some of the worst treatment human beings have ever experienced, we believe our contributions to this land and the suffering forced upon us by white America, justifies our demand for complete separation in a state or territory of our own.

5. We want freedom for all Believers of Islam now held in federal prisons. We want freedom for all black men and women now under death sentence in innumerable prisons in the North, as well as the South.

We want every black man and woman to have the freedom to accept or reject being separated from the slave master's children and establish a land of their own.

We know that the above plan for the solution of the black and white conflict is the best and only answer to the problem between two people.

6. We want an immediate end to the police brutality and mob attacks against the so-called Negro throughout the United States.

We believe that the Federal government should intercede to see that black men and women tried in white courts receive justice in accordance with the laws of the land - or allow us to build a new nation for ourselves, dedicated to justice, freedom and liberty.

7. As long as we are not allowed to establish a state or territory of our own, we demand not only equal justice under the laws of the United States, but equal employment opportunities - NOW.

We do not believe that after 400 years of free or nearly free labor, sweat and blood, which has helped America become rich and powerful, that so many thousands of black people should have to subsist on relief, charity, or live in poor homes.

8. We want the government of the United States to exempt our people from All Taxation as long as we are deprived of equal justice under the laws of the land.

9. We want equal education - but separate schools up to 16 for boys and 18 for girls on the condition that the girls be sent to women's colleges and universities. We want all black children, educated, taught and trained by their own teachers.

Under such schooling systems we believe we will make a better nation of people. The United States government should provide, free, all necessary text books and equipment, schools, and college buildings. The Muslim teachers shall be left free to teach and train their people in the way of righteousness, decency and self respect.

10. We believe that intermarriage or race mixing should be prohibited. We want the religion of Islam taught without hindrance or suppression.

These are some of the things that we, the Muslims, want for our people in North America.

To be fair, whoever wrote this, seems to be a Nation of Islam idiot. But is it far off the truth of what all Muslims want?

I have a suggestion to Muslims. Quit being defensive. Quit apologizing for any group or country that engages in suicide bombings or the annihilation of another group or country. Start criticizing suicide bombings and those who condone it. Start criticizing those who won't allow churches in their states, or those who treat women like 2nd or 3rd class citizens. Criticize those who punish homosexuality. And if you don't like my attitude here and if you don't like being told what to do: bite me.

If you don't, I'll have to conclude that Islamophobes are totally on the right track.

Ontario CUPE Falls For Arab Rhetoric, Clueless As Well

Ontario Labor Union Joins Boycott Against Israel
14:25 May 29, '06 / 2 Sivan 5766

( The Ontario branch of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) has voted to back the international campaign for a boycott against Israel until Jerusalem "recognizes the Palestinian right to self-determination." It is urging the province of Ontario to take Israeli wines off the shelves.

"This is not an attack on Jewish people. It's [an objection to] the state of Israel's policies on Palestinians," CUPE president Sid Ryan said. "They say they are creating an independent state but they're not giving them the tools to do that." The union also condemned what it called the "apartheid wall," referring to the separation barrier which straddles the 1949 Armistice Line.
This is a joke right? No, it isn't. First off, since when is Israel responsible for building a Palestinian state? What tools are Israel supposed to give to the Palestinians? Apartheid wall? Try a wall that helps defend Israel against those who want to destroy her. The USA is contemplating walls to protect herself from illegal immigration. Is Cupe going to boycott the USA too? How come Cupe doesn't boycott Arab states for their treatment of women, or for the fact bibles are illegal in Saudi Arabia for example?
This boycott comes on the same day Sid Ryan was re-elected president of Cupe.
I wonder if the two events are related.
Looks like this might affect Israeli wines being sold at LCBO stores. I wonder if any Cupe members are allowed to have medical treatment that was researched and perfected in Israel. What dickheads. This smells very fishy. Do I smell payoffs?

If you want to actually complain about this here are a couple of numbers that were attached to Cupe's boycott announcement:

The Sand Dunes On Which Tel Aviv Was Built in 1909

This Palestinian conflict issue is really ridiculous. I mean unbelievable. The whole thing is predicated on one big LIE: Israel is on Arab land.

Just because the Arabs believe this, and they've convinced many Moonbats as well, doesn't mean it is true. It is just OPINION. And an opinion based on nonsense. Just because somebody lives on a land, doesn't make it their land. Do people living in public housing own the buildings, is it their land? If a building gets condemned, they have to move. If they choose to leave their building or not pay rent, they lose their rights to the building.

Here is an excellent historical perspective to prove that the concept that Israel is on Arab land is completely false(from an article How Strong Is The Arab Claim to Palestine by Lawrence Auster:

'There is a myth hanging over all discussion of the Palestinian problem: the myth that this land was "Arab" land taken from its native inhabitants by invading Jews. Whatever may be the correct solution to the problems of the Middle East, let's get a few things straight:

* As a strictly legal matter, the Jews didn't take Palestine from the Arabs; they took it from the British, who exercised sovereign authority in Palestine under a League of Nations mandate for thirty years prior to Israel's declaration of independence in 1948. And the British don't want it back.
* If you consider the British illegitimate usurpers, fine. In that case, this territory is not Arab land but Turkish land, a province of the Ottoman Empire for hundreds of years until the British wrested it from them during the Great War in 1917. And the Turks don't want it back.
* If you look back earlier in history than the Ottoman Turks, who took over Palestine over in 1517, you find it under the sovereignty of the yet another empire not indigenous to Palestine: the Mamluks, who were Turkish and Circassian slave-soldiers headquartered in Egypt. And the Mamluks don't even exist any more, so they can't want it back.

So, going back 800 years, there's no particularly clear chain of title that makes Israel's title to the land inferior to that of any of the previous owners. Who were, continuing backward:

* The Mamluks, already mentioned, who in 1250 took Palestine over from:
* The Ayyubi dynasty, the descendants of Saladin, the Kurdish Muslim leader who in 1187 took Jerusalem and most of Palestine from:
* The European Christian Crusaders, who in 1099 conquered Palestine from:
* The Seljuk Turks, who ruled Palestine in the name of:
* The Abbasid Caliphate of Baghdad, which in 750 took over the sovereignty of the entire Near East from:
* The Umayyad Caliphate of Damascus, which in 661 inherited control of the Islamic lands from
* The Arabs of Arabia, who in the first flush of Islamic expansion conquered Palestine in 638 from:
* The Byzantines, who (nice people—perhaps it should go to them?) didn't conquer the Levant, but, upon the division of the Roman Empire in 395, inherited Palestine from:
* The Romans, who in 63 B.C. took it over from:
* The last Jewish kingdom, which during the Maccabean rebellion from 168 to 140 B.C. won control of the land from:
* The Hellenistic Greeks, who under Alexander the Great in 333 B.C. conquered the Near East from:
* The Persian empire, which under Cyrus the Great in 639 B.C. freed Jerusalem and Judah from:
* The Babylonian empire, which under Nebuchadnezzar in 586 B.C. took Jerusalem and Judah from:
* The Jews, meaning the people of the Kingdom of Judah, who, in their earlier incarnation as the Israelites, seized the land in the 12th and 13th centuries B.C. from:
* The Canaanites, who had inhabited the land for thousands of years before they were dispossessed by the Israelites....
....The Arabs have roiled the world for decades with their furious protest that their land has been "stolen" from them. One might take seriously such a statement if it came from a pacifist people such as the Tibetans, who had quietly inhabited their land for ages before it was seized by the Communist Chinese in 1950. The claim is laughable coming from the Arabs, who in the early Middle Ages conquered and reduced to slavery and penury ancient peoples and civilizations stretching from the borders of Persia to the Atlantic; who in 1947 rejected an Arab state in Palestine alongside a Jewish state and sought to obliterate the nascent Jewish state; who never called for a distinct Palestinian Arab state until the creation of the terrorist PLO in 1964—sixteen years after the founding of the state of Israel; and who to this moment continue to seek Israel's destruction, an object that would be enormously advanced by the creation of the Arab state they demand. The Arab claim to sovereign rights west of the Jordan is only humored today because of a fatal combination of world need for Arab oil, leftist Political Correctness that has cast the Israelis as "oppressors," and, of course, good old Jew-hatred."

I Guess Advertising Does Affect The Young Mind

I grew up watching The Flintstones and Bugs Bunny. They were surer things to me than death and taxes. To be fair, when I was 6, I had no real concept of death and absolutely no concept of taxes. In Toronto, in the sixties we had a choice of 5 TV channels. 2 were Canadian, and 3 were out of Buffalo. Canadian TV was pretty boring outside of hockey games and The Flintstones, so it was mostly American TV for me.
Every morning I'd watch Rocketship 7(lots of Bugs), at lunch time, especially when I was in the early grades, I'd come home and have a salami sandwich and watch The Flintstones on CTV. When I came home from school, I'd watch The Commander Tom Show which had toons like Gumby, Bugs, and The Flintstones.

Now, I really don't remember the following commercial very well but apparently it had a huge affect on me. Watch:

Unless you know me, it isn't what you think. I don't smoke, and outside of a 3 week period in my life in grade 9 when I would go with a bunch of the punks at lunch to smoke Colts on a hill behind my Jr. High School, I never acquired that disgusting habit. No commercial that glorified smoking would do me in.
But apparently the idea that housework is woman's work, as seen on the above commercial, has shaped the lazy bum my wife sees each day. What else could it be?
Damn subliminal messages. I could have been a much better husband if I hadn't been brainwashed at such an early age that men aren't supposed to lift a finger around the house.
Didn't The Flintstones also do Christmas specials? How was that explained in Fundy homes I wonder? That kind of stuff has to make a young person think, at least subliminally. How many Atheists were created by The Flintstones? Remember, thinking causes Atheism.

Below are pictures of Rocketship 7's Dave Thomas and Commander Tom (Tom Jolls also doubled as the weather man for channel 7....and continued as weatherman well past Commander Tom's cancellation).

I wish I was 6 again.

Sexual Predator Too Short For Prison WTF?

Richard W. Thompson, guilty of molesting a 12 year old girl is getting probation because a judge is worried about what 4400 prisoners might do him in prison because he is only five foot one. This LOW LIFE is fifty fricken years old. He had sex with a 12 year old child. He should be spun around from one prisoner to the next. And if someone decided to end his life, would it be a tragedy? Not in my books. This would NEVER happen in Arab countries. In Arab countries, the girl would be stoned to death for shaming the family.
Here are the voting results from an internet poll. 16,000 out of 16,200 people who responded to the poll seem to think like me: there should not be any height discrimination for who doesn't have to go to prison.

I don't get the rationale. What is the judge saying? If he was 5 foot 3, he could fend off the loving discipline in prison he deserves? What is the height cut off? What does this say to other short people thinking of molesting?

Richard inspired me to sing a song:

OK, not all short people are evil. In fact, I don't hate most short people and some of my best friends are short (I'm sure you've heard that one before) is true though...really. So short people are more than welcome here.

But I am sincere about telling Steve and Bernarda that I don't want them around here, and I don't care how tall or short they are, but my guess is that they are tiny people and hang around with lots of other tiny people.

BTW,I could have changed the words in the song to "Palestinians have no reason....etc". But see I didn't because I'm not the hateful guy some people are trying to make me out to be.

Take This Short IQ Test


A Brief History of the IQ Test

Here is a segment of the documentary "Stupidity." Did you know there are actual classifications for morons, imbeciles, and idiots?

It is estimated that variations in IQ between individuals is around 20-50% due to heritability and 50%-80% due to environment. The enviroment factor alone can explain why Arabs in the middle east perform so poorly on IQ tests. Some researchers want to include genetic factors as cultural factors. For example, in Saudi Arabia, it is cultural for Muslim Arabs to marry close relatives (2nd cousins or closer).

Whenever I debate with Palestinians supporters, I usually come away with one of two thoughts: the person is a complete imbecile, or the person is lying so much that he/she believes the lies. Occasionally, I will come across someone who doesn't know enough about the conflict and has formed an opinion based on hanging with the left too much.
You can tell that there just isn't something right with certain people. Twilight Zone logic is used by those who support the Palestinians, for example. But mostly Palestinian supporters rely on half truths, lies, and fallacies in order to make a point.
Are they really stupid, or just deluded and/or insane. Check out for yourself by reading the comments:

Here is an example of the "logic" used by Pali supporters.

And to the Israel supporters, please don't hold back from commenting on the imbecile's blog.

The Creation Evidence Museum

Some of Carl Baugh's claims:

1. Before the Flood, the earth was surrounded by hydrogen which was so cold it was metallic and this collapsed when God shouted. This is nonsense. It is impossible that such a surrounding cloud of hydrogen could ever be cold enough, especially in such proximity to the earth.
2. People could hear the 'singing' of the stars before the Flood. Apparently the metallic hydrogen (which could not have existed) enabled this to happen.
3. People could 'feel' the time before the Flood.
4. People can affect radioactive decay rates with their minds. There is absolutely no evidence for this.
5. Eggs do not hatch outside the earth's magnetic field. Baugh claimed that NASA did an experiment demonstrating this. Absolute nonsense.
6. Granites (which contain radioactive elements) are not exploding because they are in 'perfect balance'. However, radioactive elements do not normally 'explode' of course - that requires very special conditions which are not easy to arrange (if it were otherwise, every terrorist group would have atomic bombs!). Even pure radioactive elements will not 'explode', so the fact that granite does not has nothing to do with 'perfect balance' of the granite.
7. He argues that, in some way, radioactive minerals align themselves with the magnetic field, which is nonsense.
8. He says that people were smarter before the Flood, attributing this to a supposedly higher oxygen pressure. There is absolutely no evidence that high oxygen levels would make people more intelligent. He talked nonsense about 'four molecules of oxygen', linking this to his subsequent theories about oxygen saturation. Furthermore, there is no basis for his extravagant claims about the curative effects of high oxygen pressures - if it worked as he claims, paraplegics would be lining up to be treated (many hospitals have suitable hyperbaric chambers).

Above is the proof discovered in 1934 by Mr. A.M. Coffee. It's claim to fame is that it is a human footprint in stone that was presumed to be over 225 million years old.
Of course, this means that humans either lived 225 million years ago, which is impossible since Adam and Eve were born around 6,000 years ago, or that the stone is 6,000 years old tops, which means that the earth is in fact 6,000 years old and that dinosaurs and humans lived together....I think this is what it means. Even Answers in Genesis has a major problem with this imbecile.

The Creation Evidence Museum has all the answers here.

Israel Criticisers Have A Look:The Pipeline of Hatred

Those who think they know it all about Israel and what Israel is up against, please check the out: The New Anti-Semitism: The Pipeline of Hatred. Speaking of the pipeline, I think they hit a gusher here, the oil is ready to flow. No wonder why they grow up to be assmonkeys. Thanks Beth.

Thanks to Apikoros for the link. I see Little Green Footballs beat me to it, by about 3 years.

Now, my Atheist/Agnostic friends and what the heck, all my readers, you have to read this hilarious post by God's Loyal Opposition: Quote Unquote: God.
It is freakin funny.

Palestinian Poll

Hat tip to Comment Pimpette. HAHAHAHA

Great analogy of the Israel-Palestinian conflict from the BBC message board by a poster named Leffeblond:

"The Arab states have turned Israel into a larger version of the Warsaw ghetto with their threats to drive Israel into the sea and funding terrorists. This time though that ghetto is armed and will defend itself.
I see the reluctance by the Arab nations to cede that small sliver of land as nothing more than territorial greed, as Arab League nations stretch from the Atlantic to Iraq."

Probably More Entertaining Than The Da Vinci Code

This is a video which combines The Life Of Brian and The Passion of Christ (I think).
Pretty funny editing here.

I have no interest in seeing The Da Vinci Code, just as I had no interest in watching The Passion. Hell, The Passion has been available on my TV for free for quite some time and I won't watch it. The thing is, there is almost no chance that a dude named Jesus Christ ever walked this planet around 2000 years ago. There are too many wonderous things on this planet that really happened. I'm interested in these things in movies or documentaries. There are so many real things that will happen. I'm interested in these things too. Speculation on things we don't know is good too. If someone is going to totally make something up, make it clear the characters are not real, like Sherlock Holmes, or make it a comedy like Life of Brian (I know Brian wasn't real either, but he was more real than Jesus).

I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I couldn't think of anything else to post today.

One more thing. Check out The Dilbert Blog. Scott Adams last three or four posts have to do with US aid to Israel and terrorism. He is such a joker.

I'm Just A Liberal Atheist Who Hates Terrorists and Dhimmiwits

Your Political Profile:
Overall: 35% Conservative, 65% Liberal
Social Issues: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal
Personal Responsibility: 25% Conservative, 75% Liberal
Fiscal Issues: 0% Conservative, 100% Liberal
Ethics: 0% Conservative, 100% Liberal
Defense and Crime: 100% Conservative, 0% Liberal

I can't help it if I recognize terror for what it is. A true realist is not a Dhimmiwit. It would be one thing if it was just rhetoric, but certain people blow themselves up in front of innocent people. And the brothers and sisters of these suicide bombers blame the West, not their culture of hate.

Thanks Cat, for the link to the quiz. It doesn't take long to do.

These Guys Must Be Berkeley Grads

Sometimes you have to wonder if certain people take the concept of a free country and free speech a tad too far. Isn't this rally just sickening though? At least thanks to free speech, we know who the enemies are and what they look like. And this kind of stuff proves to me at least: TO BE PRO-PALESTINIAN IS TO BE ANTI-WEST

Getting back to Berkeley. I don't think there is a high level education institution that creeps me out more. Arab instructors with their blatant anti-semitism, actually get to teach "America's" young.

This guy pretty much sums up Berkeley:

"Encountering anti-Semitism and intolerance at the bastion of free speech and liberalism—UC-Berkeley—was shocking to me. Having attended a very diverse public high school in San Francisco, my friends were from all racial and socio-economic backgrounds, and being in a family of Holocaust survivors taught me the supreme importance of tolerance and respect. When I came to UC-Berkeley, I was uncomfortable because I saw self-segregation and hatred running rampant. I wanted to change this, so I ran for and won a seat on the student government senate. To my astonishment, what I found among the leaders of Berkeley was even worse; I encountered anti-Semitic rhetoric and race baiting politics. This at Berkeley?" More

Here is a first hand account of how vile Berkeley is.

Here are some nothworthy anti-semitic incidents that happened at American Colleges from 2002-2004. Notice how many happened at Berkeley.

I know Berkeley isn't completely full of anti-Western, terrorist sympathizing pieces of crap and Dhimmis, so my apologies to those who are not.

Apes Are In The News Once More

Live Science is going ape these days with stories about apes and monkeys.

Putty-nosed monkeys, who dwell in African rainforests, give out warning "hacks" when predators are around. I love the description of the goals of the monkeys by the Live Science writer: "Their three main goals in life are to reproduce, eat, and not get eaten." Aint that what evolution is all about? More here.

Now it looks like humans and chimp ancestors may have interbred. " The initial split occurred around 6.3 million years ago. Sometime after, the descendents of the earliest known human ancestor—the 6.5 to 7.5-million-year-old "Toumai," a biped that probably didn't look much different than chimpanzee ancestors—mated with ancestral chimps and created a hybrid species.

Scientists can't say how long the hybridization carried on, but the final speciation occurred around 5.3 million years ago, possibly because the two species' genetic coded were too different to mix or the animals were simply physically unappealing to each other." More here

Unappealing to each other? I don't think they are talking about married couples who have been together too long.

And now for the best story, at least to me. Apes plan ahead.
"To determine if apes can also perform this type of "mental time travel," Nicholas Mulcahy and Josep Call, researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany, enlisted five bonobo chimpanzees and five orangutans for an experiment.

The researchers first led the animals into a room and taught them how to use a tool to get a food reward. Then the apes were directed to a "tool shed" containing tools for reaching grapes and juice bottles. Two of the tools were well suited for the task, while six were not.

After an ape made its selection, it was not allowed access to the goodie dispenser for an hour, so the animal hauled the tool back to a waiting room for storage.

When the researchers allowed the animals to have a go at the dispenser, the apes returned with a suitable tool and retrieved their treat in less than 5 minutes about 30 percent of the time.

One orangutan, a female named Dokana, was particularly adept at planning ahead. She returned to the feeding area with the correct tool for the task nearly every time. Even when she brought back the wrong tool, she figured out how to alter it to make it work anyway.

In a second test, the researchers extended the wait time to 14 hours and ran the test with Dokana and a male bonobo named Kuno. Dokana took tools with her in all 11 trials, and returned with the proper tool seven times. Kuno did even better, returning with the right tool eight times.

Reading an ape's mind

The authors suggest that selecting a tool, which has no value in itself, is evidence that the apes are actually planning ahead, since the animal knows that the tool will come in handy later on."

OK, now I would have guessed that Great Apes could think ahead. But this leads me to ponder why can't Palestinians think ahead. Maybe some of the Palestinian leaders need brain transplants. Give the Palestinian leaders bonobos brains and maybe, just maybe, there will be peace in the middle east.

Here is an example of how Palestinians think ahead:

Palestinians have yet to show any ability to think even one move ahead. They seem to be stuck on the past. Voting for Hamas was a perfect example of this. I have a feeling that when a Palestinian gets ready for a game of chess, he just imagines suicide belts on all the pawns.

The Da Vinci Code is baloney: Why the commotion?

I know why many Christians are so upset over the movie, The Da Vinci Code. It isn't that people are going to die over this, like Jews died in the past when The Passion plays were performed, or like the people who died at cartoon protests recently. No, the Christians aren't worried about people dying because of this movie. They are worried their already flimsy belief system will be further questioned, potentially losing even more of their flock.
Science is hard enough to argue against, but now a fake but plausible story about their mythological saviour....this is too much. How dare someone add to the phoney story they already live and die by? It is like telling a Fundy to add evolution and an ancient earth to their belief system. Many Christians don't like add ons. Too much thinking is required, too many new lies must be invented to keep people believing the old lies.
It is obvious that distorting the mythological Jesus by allowing for a wife and possible kids is totally taboo, causing such an uproar. Yet the release of the movie, The God Who Wasn't There, hardly made news. Maybe Brian Flemming should have got Tom Hanks to appear in a couple of scenes:)

I know as far as my belief in the historical Jesus goes, I never questioned his existence until around the time that Mel Gibson started with his movie, The Passion.

All of a sudden, I was turned on to lots of information about the FACT that Jesus most likely didn't even exist. And everything I've read since, even from Christian Apologists, has only reinforced the non existence of Jesus Christ. It is kind of like the opposite of evolution, where everything I read reinforces evolution as fact. Us Atheists, we are such a cynical bunch, always demanding proof. How dare us!

Here are a couple of clips from The God Who Wasn't There. Definitely worth watching.
The first one runs around 6 minutes and the second one is less than 2 minutes long.

This is the movie that should upset Christians much more than The Da Vinci Code. At least the Code assumes Jesus was a living breathing person.

Yes, there was a 40 year gap from when Jesus supposedly lived, and the first words were written about the greatest myth of all times (OK, he is tied with God).

Oh, and before I get nasty comments by Christians here, please look at some of these sites and try refuting them. You can't.

Was Jesus mostly based on Caesar?

May 16, 2006


I didn't have to wait long before these great clips became available on the web. I always loved these shows, and of course the writers make the show, and the writers are not whacko creationists by the looks of these videos. Watch and laugh.

Edited: Youtube keeps deleting these so if you want to view both Family Guy and The Simpsons short videos mocking creationists go here.

The Simpsons dedicated the whole show to the evolution/creation school debate. They pulled no punches, as they didn't mention it was ID vs. evolution but creation vs. evolution. Here is a clip:

I'm always curious how YECs view things like this. Do they get it (yeah right)? Do they realize how ridiculous their beliefs really are (I think deep down they know it but are in deep denial)? Are they mad at The Simpsons and Family Guy (channel block?)? Do they laugh at themselves (I doubt it)?

It is interesting that both these episodes did a first run on the same day (coincidence, or intelligent design?).
Meanwhile all I can do is laugh.

Incidentally, my favorite TV show tackled evolution/creation earlier this year. Watch this, it is short and to the point:

I wonder if Fundies have discussions like Tony and Chris had after the Fundy left.

As my readers know, I feel American Atheists and their No God Blog has an overwhelming anti-Israel bias there.
Now I have found out that their Atheist of the month for August of 2002 was none other than Holocaust denying white supremacist ass licking piece of shit Larry Darby.
Here is a picture of American Atheist President Ellen Johnson putting her hand affectionately on the piece of crap at an Atheists meeting:

Apparently, Darby was the Alabama state director for the American Atheists.

Larry Darby is now running as the Democratic candidate for Alabama Attorney General. He won't win because he is an Atheist. Other than that, his Jew hating, anti-gay, pro-White views would probably give him a slam dunk victory in inbreed country. According to the article in Newsday, he thinks 140,000 Jews died in Europe tops, and most of them died of Typhus.
He is off to New Jersey to meet with National Vanguard, a racist hate organization who whores with anyone who hates Jews, blacks, etc, even anti-Christians like Darby. The average IQ of National Vanguard's members is probably very close to the 73 average IQ of Qatar.

Here is a quote by the pond scum Darby via Hammer of Truth, "In my investigations of modern mythology, such as the Six Millions Lie, which by the way was first trotted out by Zionists during or immediately after World War One, there is a nasty aspect that is too often ignored - that of Jewish Supremacism. I’ve noticed megalomania or superiority complexes even with so-called secular Jews. Even though so-called secular Jews reject the existence of YHWH (the Jewish God of War, the surviving god of all the gods Jews once worshiped) who made them the Master Race, according to the Tanakh, so-called secular Jews are still Jewish Supremacists."

Screw Darby, and screw American Atheists for not writing a single bad word about their former Atheist of the Month.

Pharygula's main man PZ Meyers, "repudiates" Darby as a Democrat.

Here are a bunch of quotes by this vile piece of human feces. He even complained in February that American Atheists was too suportive of Israel. Meanwhile, like many Jew haters, he has something against bashing Muslims over bashing Jews. People like Darby are the sickest people on this planet. If I saw him tomorrow I would kick him in the balls.

UPDATE: Biblioblography has pointed out to me that American Atheists posted something about Darby in a newsletter dated August 2005: "We wish to confirm and underscore this fact. Darby has not served in that capacity as a Director for over two years. Many of his activities and statements, especially concerning the Holocaust as well as how he conducts himself regarding Atheist, Freethought, Humanist or nonbeliever groups and individuals, do not in any way reflect the official position of American Atheists or its officers."

I'll still add that I did feel that many of the blog commenters were anti-Israel, and a few of them are definitely anti-semites. I wasn't impressed by others support of these posters either.

Maybe Schizophrenics Should Solve the Word's Problems

In a really interesting study reported at, it seems that schizophrenics are better at problems to do with logic (on a limited basis) than us norms.
It has to do with the way we take context into account when solving a problem. Context can actually trap us into making logical errors.
The study, done in France, found 58% of norms failing in a particular logic task, compared to only 19% of non-norms failing the same task.
There could be many reasons why the norms fell for the trap, but the bottom line is that they fell for it.
I say that we get a group of schizophrenics, lets say 50-200 and we try to explain problems like Iran's nukes, the Israel-Palestinian conflict, Darfur, Arab terror, global warming, gay marriages, abortion, young earth philosophers, IDers, over-population, the Iraq war, Muslim cartoon violence, and limited oil resources. We then act on their solutions as long as there is an overwhelming (70%+) agreement by the non-norms.
The two biggest problems are, how can these problems be put to schizophrenics in an unbiased way, and how can we get the world to listen to their logical answers.

A whole post proves I'm a Fundamentalist Christian, leaving very little doubt about it.
The Atheologist: Don’t Judge A Blog By Its Cover, makes a very good argument about the apparent facade I have been trying to pull off.

The Atheologist does pride himself on his detective work, just look at his avatar:

A few things I will argue about his research on me. I don't like conspiracy theories against Israel. I have a job, though I can understand his mistake, as I hide it very well. My wife doesn't even think I work. And he really needs to do something about his hearing if he believes I have a great singing voice.

I can't argue with the rest of his post because I might get accused of protesting too much.

Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), Canada's spy agency has warned: a terror attack on Canadian soil is "now probable."

It seem that the Religion of Peace has found a reason to hate us. Stupid us. We obviously haven't done everything we can to make Canada a Muslim country yet.

Looks like we need to be taught a lesson. Some innocent people need to die, so we can learn.

Thank you Liberal Moonbats, for allowing terror cells to grow in Canada. Until there is a Mosque on every street corner, us Canadians will have to watch our backs.

One more thing I've realized, our troops in Afghanistan are much braver than me. I'm a wimp (a keyboard warrior) in comparison to the Western ground soldiers fighting terror. These soldiers are fighting for our freedom and our future. The sickness of Islam must be defeated and reformed. Most Canadians haven't realized it yet, but according to CSIS we will understand it soon enough.

Aaron, from Aaron's Case, on his main page, speaks for many of us when he says: "Hey, I'm just a friendly family guy and relatively high-profile blogger who objects to a religion that would dhimmify all non-adherants and make them pay jizya for the privilege of remaining alive under Muslim rule. It pains me deeply that there has yet to be even a rally of even 1000 Muslims out of the 1.2 billion adherants anywhere on earth to renounce violent jihad or even to protest the widespread practice of female genital mutilation and honor killing seemingly unique to that faith throughout the Islamic world.".....but publish a cartoon of Mohammed and watch the shit fly.

I have a few questions for Evangelicals

I don't know how much response I will get over this one, but here goes:

Lets say you start questioning things like the age of the earth and evolution. First off, do Evangelicals question these things? And if you do and actually start buying into the reality of an ancient earth and evolution, do you start questioning people at your church, the head honcho Preacher for instance, or close friends you see at church regularly?

Are you content with their answers? If you changed your mind about Young Earth Creation, would you change churches, or not go, or go less? Do you find a pressure on you to believe the unbelievable?

I'd like honest answers here, even from ex-Christians if you feel like sharing.

Am I a racist if I say:

Most illegal immigrants in the United States come from Mexico.

9/11 was planned and carried out by Arabs.

Blacks have a much better chance to become NFL running backs than whites, and especially white Jews.

Blacks have a much better chance of making the NBA than whites, and especially white Jews.

Many blacks have a different genetic make up than many whites which enables many blacks to be better athletes in sports like basketball, football and to a lesser extent baseball, and this is a big reason blacks are over-represented in these sports.

Short people have a better chance of becoming jockeys than tall people.

Muslims carry out most suicide bombing attacks in the world today.

Many first generation Chinese North Americans tend to appear physically pushier than most other people, and many tend to be lousier drivers. This could be due to culture and/or genetics, most likely a combination.

Most gays are genetically predisposed to be gay.

Up to 50% of Saudis historically are inbred (second cousins or closer).

Many Middle Eastern Arab Muslims are taught from an early age to hate the West and Israel.

Jews are over-represented as lawyers, accountants, doctors, and stand-up comedians.

The sky appears blue during a cloudless day.

I don't think Jimmy the Greek should have been fired for saying: "The slave owner would breed this big Black with this big Black woman so he could have a big Black kid."1

Only one black NFL quarterback won a Super Bowl. It was back in 1988, when the Washington Redskins beat the Denver Broncos.

Wasington's NFL team's nickname is Redskins.

Close to 45% of Americans believe in Young Earth Creation and think evolution is a crock.

Blacks are over-represented in jails.

When it comes to pets, dogs appear more loyal to their owner than cats do in most cases.

Not very much in the way of medical or technical advances have come from Arab countries over the last 1000 or so years.

The average IQ of those who live in Arab countries is approximately 83.

Ashkenazi Jews have an average IQ of around 107.

Blacks in America have a lower IQ average than whites in America.

Close to 65% of Americans who drop out of high school believe the earth is less than 10,000 years old.

If a terrorist act was committed today, it was most likely carried out by a Muslim.

Bats are the only mammal that actually flies.

1 In his autobiographical Narrative, Frederick Douglass (a former slave) describes a young landowner named Covey, just starting out in life, who could only afford one slave. So he bought a woman named Caroline, "a large able-bodied woman about twenty years old."

"Shocking as is the fact," Douglass wrote, "he bought her, as he said, for a breeder." Then Covey went out and rented a married male slave, "And him he used to fasten up with Caroline every night! The result was that at the end of the year, the miserable woman gave birth to twins." A similar account appears in a series of narratives assembled by Fisk University in Nashville. "They would buy a fine girl and a fine man and just put them together like cattle," one former slave recalled. "They would not stop to marry them. If she was a good breeder, they was proud of her. I was stout and they were saving me for a breeding woman, but by the time I was big enough I was free."

Pascal's Wager: Might As Well Bet On Atheism

That Pascal dude sure makes it tough for us Atheists. What is more important?: living the life of a righteous believer so that we can have an opportunity at life everlasting in heaven, or live a life that most likely will be just as righteous, but possibly being rewarded with an eternity in hell because we didn't believe in God or suck up to him.

First off, which God are we supposed to suck up to? There are over 3400 potential Gods to choose from according to Many Christians say, that according to their interpretation of the bible (written by many different men and maybe even some women), we must accept Jesus Christ to ensure our place in heaven.
Of course, the Christian cult than breaks off even more, and each sect has different rules to get into heaven, or stay out of hell. Most of these sects allow for do overs if you did something really bad, or even if you did lots of really terrible things, just as long as you die sincerely accepting Jesus as you personal saviour. Some sects say that Jews are exempt because we a chosen, we don't have to accept Jesus to get in. Of course, most say that Jews don't get in because we turned our back on Jesus.

Then you have those Muslim, Hindu, Scientology, Jewish, etc. beliefs to deal with.
And many Muslims believe the suicide bombers are Martyrs, and they are the closest you can get to their God (personally I would think hell for them....but). Most Orthodox Jews believe that Jews must follow (or at least try as hard as humanly possible to follow) the 613 Mitzvot (commandments). Of course, you can't do that and accept Jesus at the same time unless you are Jew for Jesus, who by covering a couple of religions, take Pascal even more seriously than mono religious people.
You have the Buddhists who believe that some sort of Kharmatic force dictates what our next life is going to be. I still don't get where 6.5 billion people reincarnated from. It couldn't be people. Must have been insects. But what were todays insects in their past lives? At least if they are right, we don't have to worry about accepting God or Jesus, or Mohammed.

God, if he exists, got so fed up with people believing in biblical fairy tales, he tried to show a new generation exactly how easy it is to start a religion based on ridiculous claims when he guided the Mormons in their beginnings. But few realized the parallels.

When Christians like Ray Comfort ask, why not accept Jesus since you are not guaranteed to get into heaven without accepting him, ask him/her if you should also accept Mohammed and Allah too and the teachings of Joseph Smith as well. At least there is historical proof Mohammed existed, same with Joseph Smith. And we all know that according to South Park, Mormonism is the right religion, and only Mormons get to go to heaven.

Pascal was a Christian. I think he tested out at least 2 different Christian sub cults. He had a revelation when he had a near death experience in his early 30's, but it didn't stop the sickly Pascal from dying in his late 30's. He was a genius when it came to probability theory. Too bad he didn't know what we know today when it comes to the universe and evolution, or he would know that the probability that God and/or heaven exists is as close to zero as anything can get.

Some people say that all religions are just different paths to the same destination. I couldn't agee more, except the final destination is not heaven but "Dust In The Wind."

Getting back to betting on Atheism, I say that if God exists, he put absolutely no evidence on this planet or the universe to prove it to me. My bet would be that God wouldn't want people who were that gullible to be that close to him, in heaven. In fact, he would embrace only Atheists, who dealt with real evidence. He would only want to be with those don't believe in fairy tales. He needs the intellectual stimulation. He doesn't need dummies.
And if God doesn't exist, which of course he doesn't, Atheists like me can live our lives realizing that this is our only shot to be conscious beings, and we have the choice to make the most of it or the least of it.

Time To Qualify My Ideology Again

I did a post a little while ago that basically states where I stand on most issues:
here it is once more.

I'm pretty much a centrist, but socially I definitely lean to the left. When it comes to fighting Radical Islam and Evangelicals who want to push their bullshit agenda, I am on the Far Right.

Some people may find a conflict here because many Evangelicals are very Anti-Jihad, and many Atheists have their heads up their ass when it comes to the goals of Islam, and feel that supporting gay rights, for example, is the same thing ideologically as supporting Islamic rights. Atheists don't have to be MOONBATS. Atheists don't have to be blind. Atheists don't have to be Dhimmis in waiting.

Hey that isn't an Alley Cat, it is an Allah Cat, run:

Again, as proven by some of the commenters on this blog, the Far Left just don't get it. Even when given evidence, they deny and/or ignore it. Even if the evidence comes from first hand sources such as The Sandmonkey, God's Loyal Opposition, Roya (The Atheist Girl), Wafa Sultan, or The Three Former Palestinian Terrorists. Sorry but I can't handle a culture that protests cartoons on one hand but stays relatively silent when it comes to protesting terrorist acts.

As far the Christian Right is concerned, I feel I am better equipped to fight it, and I think it is a war that will eventually be won..........but not in my lifetime.

Science and fact can only be denied for so long. Let us not forget that mind numbing religious beliefs have been around for thousands of years. In fact it was the only game in town for quite a while. The Young Earth, for instance, was ingrained in our ancestors so much that it wouldn't surprise me if part of our brains evolved a small section that automatically accepts it as a given. But I have "faith" that humans are capable of overcoming this brain defect, if we are allowed to receive facts and evidence. Didn't OBL just say that Freethinkers should have their heads cut off? (Oh yeah, just some more rhetoric for the Religion Of Peace). At least the Christian Right hasn't been threatening anything like that. They just tell me I'm going to hell. I can live with that.

Yes, it is amazing that in today's day and age that 45% of Americans believe in a Young Earth and think evolution is phooey. But those numbers were much higher 100 years ago. And I expect that number to keep dropping and dropping as more scientific discoveries come along. The Christian Right can only do the Ignorant Jig for so long before their legs have no more strength.

I don't even have a problem with the fact that Fundamental Christians plop out more children than us Secularists. Just because a child is born to two delusional parents, doesn't make the child delusional. If that was true, Agnostics and Atheists would not be growing by percentage. It is my duty, and the duty of anyone who appreciates at least the basics of how scientific theories are derived, to educate as many young people as we can. Facts will win in the long run. As long as the Christian Right doesn't ban science, reality will win.

It won't be long before the Catholics start owning up to the fact that Jesus might not have existed the way they are going. I love it. Check this out at Beep Beep's. It is only a matter of time. The Christian Fundies will be dinosaurs within a century.

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

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

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:
free online datingfree online dating
You scored higher than 43% on pentagrams
Link: The Atheist Test written by chi_the_cynic on Ok Cupid, home of the 32-Type Dating Test

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.
