Stupid Pet Tricks By Daisy & Laugh With Pat Condell

This is very short. The cookie trick is pretty cool:

There are quite a few good Atheist comics. Pat Condell, from the UK, is probably the best. Logical and extremely witty. Here are a couple of his best Youtube videos:

You can't argue with, but you sure as heck can smile and laugh a lot with him.

Here is his newest video:

Reddit and Digg Buttons For The New Blogger

You may ask, what does this post have to do with being an Atheist Jew? The answer is nothing. I just wanted to share a few blogging ideas to my readers.
If you look at the top right hand corner of this post, you will see a Digg Button. If you are using the new blogger (or blogger beta format) and you want this button, click "template", then "edit html," check the "expand widget box," and follow these instructions:

Find this code in your template:


and replace with this code:

<!-- DIGG -->
<div style='float:right; margin-left:10px;'>
<script type='text/javascript'>
digg_url = '<data:post.url/>';
<script src='http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.js' type='text/javascript'/>


Now, if you want the Reddit, Digg, and Del.icio.us buttons you see at the bottom of all my posts:
Enter Dashboard, select "Template" or "Layout" and "Edit HTML". Select checkbox "Expand Widget Templates". Follow these instructions:

Find the following code in your template:

<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'/>

And replace it with the following code and save:

<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'>
<a expr:href='"http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&amp;url=" + data:post.url + "&amp;title=" + data:post.title'>
<img src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1785/2897/1600/digg.gif" /> digg</a>
<a expr:href='"http://reddit.com/submit?url=" + data:post.url + "&amp;title=" + data:post.title'>
<img src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1785/2897/1600/reddit.png" /> reddit</a>
<a expr:href='"http://del.icio.us/post?url=" + data:post.url + "&amp;title=" + data:post.title'>
<img src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1785/2897/1600/delicious.gif" /> del.icio.us</a>

Taw's Blog

Note: If you have something in the "p class....line-3'" part of your template, then do what I did, and make a new "line-4" which I pasted right after the "/p" for line-3.

Now you may ask, why bother? Well, you want your blog to be read by as many people as possible, don't you? I do. If you have an appealing enough title for your post, and then you submit your story to Reddit or Digg, you will be amazed at how many new hits your blog gets.


Another useful free blog tool I use is coComment.
CoComment allows you to automatically follow any posts in the blogosphere that you commented on. I have an add-on for it from Mozilla, but I'm not sure if it is needed or not, because I'm really just winging it. I'm not sure how coComment works with other browsers.

Who says atheists, don't help out their fellow man (bloggers)?

Finally, I don't usually participate in internet related "things to do" that are emailed to me, but I couldn't resist this one:

Seven year old Shane Bernier is a brave cancer patient at CHEO and he is asking people to send him a card for his birthday on May 30th. Shane wants to set a world record for the most number of cards received!

I bought the card yesterday and I will mail it on Monday. Here is a link to get Shane's address: http://shanebernier.ca/

Of course, being the skeptic that I am, I had to check out if his story was true or not. Snopes says it is real. If Snopes says it is real, then it must be true.

Saudi Arabia's Modesty Buses Draw Fire

Saudi Arabia's 'modesty buses' draw fire
By Katia Abdul
BBC News, Riyadh

The other day I was waiting for a bus in downtown Riyadh. I was in the bustling extreme Islamic neighbourhood of Olaya and the bus stop was extremely crowded.

When the Number 40 bus arrived, the most curious thing happened. Husbands left heavily pregnant wives or spouses struggling with prams and pushchairs to fend for themselves as they and all other male passengers got on at the front of the bus.

Women moved towards the rear door to get on at the back.

When on the bus, I tried to buck the system, moving my way towards the driver but was pushed back towards the other women.

These are what extreme Muslims call "modesty buses".

The separation system operates on 30 public bus routes across Saudi Arabia.

The authorities here say the arrangement is voluntary, but in practice, as I found out, there is not much choice involved.

'Abuse and threats'

Fatime Rahma is one of a group of women now taking the separation bus system to court. She is a deeply religious Muslim herself.

"I wasn't trying to start a revolution, all I wanted to do was get home," she tells me.

"I was in downtown Riyadh and I saw a bus going straight to my neighbourhood and I got on and sat down, in a single seat behind the driver.

"It was a completely empty bus, and all of a sudden, some men started getting on, Muslim extremist men. They told me I was not allowed to sit there, I had to go to the back of the bus."

Not only is the segregation system discriminatory, says Ms Rahma, but it can also be dangerous, she says, for those like her who ignore it.

"I said to him look, if you bring me a code of Islamic law and show me where it's written that I have to sit at the back of the bus I'll move.

"And he tried to gain support from the rest of the passengers and I underwent a half-hour of pure hell - abuse, humiliation, threats, even physical intimidation."

'Positive discrimination'

Supporters of the separation system say the buses involved serve mainly extreme fundamental Muslim neighbourhoods - but not exclusively.

Many passengers are not happy. You will hear complaints at bus stops all over town.

One man told me that if some people wanted segregation buses they should pay a private company to provide them.

Another told me that in a society that is democratic and where the buses are subsidised by the government, a minority's concerns should not override those of the majority.

But Achmed Farouk disagrees. He is a city councillor in Riyadh where a large proportion of Saudi Arabia's segregation lines operate.

"This really is about positive discrimination, in women's favour. Our religion says there should be no public contact between men and women, this modesty barrier must not be broken."

Uphill struggle

Opponents of the separation buses face an uphill struggle. Radical Muslim leaders are a powerful minority in Saudi Arabia.

Fatima Regen says the buses are just part of a wider menacing pattern of behaviour towards women in parts of the extremist Muslim community.

"They've already cancelled higher education in the radical Islamic world for women. They have packed the religious courts with extreme Muslim judges.

"In some places there are separate sides of the street women have to walk on."

She says that there are signs all over some religious neighbourhoods demanding that women dress modestly.

"They throw paint and bleach at women who aren't dressed modestly and if we don't draw a line in the sand here with this seat on a bus, then I don't know what this country and this religion is going to look like in 20 years," Ms Rahma said.

Petitioners like Fatima Rahma have asked Saudi Arabia's High Court to either ban the segregation buses altogether or to force bus companies to provide parallel bus routes for passengers wanting to sit where they like.
Alright, for those who don't know, this happened in Israel, not Saudi Arabia. The names and religious references were changed to get my following point across.

First, I realize that this post may jeopardize my chances at winning the JIB Award for best Jewish and Israeli Skepticism Blog. DON'T FORGET TO VOTE

Aside from that, most of the point, I hope is obvious. If this was in fact, a story that was from about Arab country (sure, this would have no chance of being debated within nor would it be considered newsworthy), many bloggers I know would be eating it up.
And I'm not just talking about Atheists, but I'm mostly directing this to my anti-Jihadist/pro-Israel friends as well.
And yes, it is easy to find these types of stories in most Arab and/or Muslim countries. They are hourly occurrences. Just check out Eye on the World, Elder of Ziyon, or The Muslim Question, just to name a few.

But I can't be hypocritical at this stage. Especially after opening up my new blog, Judeophobe Watch.

The behavior of Ultra-Orthodox Jews with regard to modestly dressed women and the 'modesty buses' is wrong. Plain and simple. I realize some of the comments at the end of the BBC article are very good, but they don't offer enough justification.

Here is the thing: Everyone is entitled to believe whatever they want. As long as they don't interfere with anyone else's right to believe, or not believe in whatever anyone wants to believe, everything is fine.

But imposing ones extreme beliefs or even moderate beliefs on other people, is just plain wrong. There are facts in the world, and there are beliefs. Beliefs do not take precedence in MY WORLD.

The fact is that these buses are NOT PRIVATE. If the Ultra Orthodox Jewish community want them to be exclusive, by their rules, they should buy them and run them themselves.

As far as their treatment of modestly dressed women on the streets; that is a shame, and no better than how we perceive the Muslim world's attitude towards women in many countries.

The Ultra Orthodox Jews should grow up, and be accepting. Whether they like it or they don't. If they want or need TOTAL exclusivity, they can move to Antarctica. The streets are not an Ultra Orthodox temple. They really don't have the right to be disgusted. Live and let live, unless you are being attacked. It is impossible for me to be tolerant of a religious person who is intolerant of others, especially in a public setting.

Tommy from Exercise in Futility is also outraged by the 'modesty bus,' and he isn't even a Jooooo:) Oh, and I can't believe how friggin stupid I am. For a couple of years I had him in my sidebar as ExCercise in Futility. I just noticed the mistake tonight for the first time and corrected it. And nobody said squat to me about it either.

One more plug, even though he probably will hate this article. Vote Elder of Ziyon for Best Pro-Israeli Advocacy Blog.

Bill O'Reilly's Advice To Richard Dawkins: "You Should Run"

Here is Bill O'Reilly making sense. He actually dug himself a big hole that, lucky for him, his audience didn't get it. I think he got it though, right after he tried to work it in his analogy.

He basically said run from anyone talks about God or religion, including himself. I'm not sure if he knew from the onset what he was thinking when he started his reply. But one thing is for sure, he temporarily clued in about proof, evidence and the wilfully ignorant.

Looks like he forgot that whole conversation though. Here is his conversation last night with Richard Dawkins:

"Jesus was a real guy" "I know what he did"
Bill, there is no evidence that a historical Jesus ever existed. The only thing you know is that a story exists about what a most likely mythological figure supposedly did.

"I'm not positive Jesus is God, but I'm throwing in with Jesus"...'because Atheist can't yet conclusively explain how the universe began.'
Lets see Bill, you are saying that you believe because you want to believe. In other words: Run Richard, run.

'Catholicism helps me as a person'
Jew haters who can't pay the rent are helped if they believe Jews are somehow to blame. It doesn't mean there is anything rational about it, and remember you said to "RUN."

Obviously Bill didn't read Dawkins' The God Delusion (either have I, but I intend to). It is painfully obvious knowing what I know about the contents of the book. The debate was over when O'Reilly sluffed off the inability anyone has in proving Zeus is not God.

Atheism a bane to civilization?
Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot all confirmed atheists? Not Hitler. Show me one shred of evidence Hitler was an atheist. That is just a lie. There is no way of telling what anyone believes, but Hitler quoted Jesus and Christ hundreds of times. He was a creationist as well, believing that Aryans were specially created by God.
OK, I know he wasn't a good Catholic, but Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot weren't good atheists.

On the rest:

Yes, religion can be a moderating influence. It keeps morons who think they need fear of God to keep themselves from murdering, raping and stealing. Religion is also a way to control the masses, if the masses share the same religion. The Founding Fathers, were as secular as they come, and they had no knowledge of an ancient earth or evolution. Without knowledge of an ancient earth and evolution, one is almost compelled to have to believe in creation stories of some sort.

I would have argued about Atheism being a bane on civilization a bit more, but Dawkins didn't have very much time at all.

It was an atheist, Boris Yeltsin who eliminated Communism in Russia. When O'Reilly earlier brought up Sweden and Japan as being atheist majority countries, Dawkins should have flung it back in his face and ask, what exactly is wrong with those countries? Which country does he feel is better all around, Saudi Arabia or Japan?

Judeophobe Watch

As some of you have already found out, I just started a new blog called Judeophobe Watch.

The purpose of it as stated in the blog header: This site gives normal human beings a chance to debunk, refute, chastise, and debate anti-semitic postings from various Judeophobic web sites, like Crescent and Cross, for example. The cowards who spew their anti-semitic bull do not normally allow normal human beings to comment on their drivel.

When a blog search is made for those on the lunatic fringe like David Duke and Mark Glenn, I want my new site to be one of the search results. And hopefully the posts will have some intelligent comments on them, so that people doing searches can see that the premises of Joooo haters are seriously flawed, as is most the revisionist history and unsubstantiated rhetoric that goes hand in hand with the anti-semite's spewings.

Another reason to open for the Judeophobe Watch site, is that I think that my personal email exchanges with these idiots will become completely unnecessary, in that I now have forum to invite any Joooo hater to.

I also believe that by exposing Judeophobes in this way, it will show how ridiculous their ideas are. For those who think Judeophobes should be ignored and that I'm only giving them a platform, my reply is: should Hitler have been ignored in the 1920's?

Finally, another reason I am doing this is to keep the Atheist Jew blog on track: Fighting with individual anti-semites here, is just a little too out there I think, and probably many of my readers agree.

I want this blog focused on four things: Atheism, separation of church and state, layman's science, and the War on Terror (which includes of course the insanity of the Palestinian "cause" and their actions).

If you aren't on the Judeophobe Watch blogroll and want to be, please let me know, and I will blogroll you (providing you aren't a Judeophobe).

Right now, comments on that blog are not being moderated. I will only delete comments that are off topic and/or include baseless insults, are genuine spam, or comments that include very long copy and paste material. If I find myself having to delete a lot of comments, I will turn moderation on.

One more thing. I was nominated for a JIB (Jewish and Israeli Blog) Award in the category of "Best Jewish Skepticism Blog"

If you feel like voting for me, GO HERE.

Wasn't God Allowed In Schools When Hitler Was A Kid?

Warning: This video will insult your intelligence:

Seung-Hui Cho, the Virginia madman, mentions Jesus Christ how many times in the video he sent to MSNBC?
He seemed to know all about Jesus. Maybe that is the problem.

"Thanks to you, I die like Jesus Christ, to inspire generations of the weak and the defenceless people."

"Do you know what it feels like to be humiliated and be impaled on a cross and left to bleed to death for your amusement?"

From Wikipedia. 1959 Texas:

Paul Orgeron and Dusty Paul

Paul Orgeron was a tile-setter from South Houston, Texas who had been attempting to enroll his son Dusty into elementary school. Orgeron and his son had been living in a boarding house under the pseudonym of Bob Silver, for reasons unknown, before the massacre. They were said to have been quiet and never made any trouble.

Eventually Orgeron attempted to enroll his son at Edgar Allan Poe Elementary School but was denied on the grounds that he lacked a birth certificate for his son. He left the school claiming he would return the next day with the necessary documentation.

The attack

On September 15, around 10:00 a.m., Orgeron and his son approached a teacher who was about to enter one of the classrooms. At the time he was carrying a brown suitcase with unknown contents. The teacher was given two pieces of paper by Orgeron and asked to read them. According to the teacher the papers were completely illegible, and she was unable to understand them. While she tried to read the notes Orgeron mumbled under his breath about "having power in a suitcase," and the will of God.

He asked that all the children gather into a circle around him. The teacher became suspicious after seeing a mysterious button on the bottom of the suitcase. Seeing her distress other teachers joined her and Orgeron was asked to leave school grounds. When he refused the teachers began to evacuate the children away from Orgeron, and shortly thereafter Orgeron detonated the briefcase which was estimated to contain six sticks of dynamite. The explosion claimed six lives, including both Orgeron and his son. Two other students, a custodian and a teacher also perished.
School shootings are tragedies, but they are not proof that God needs to be taught in classrooms. In fact, I would say the opposite is true. Considering the relatively low amount of these tragic incidents that have occurred, and when they do, they are usually done by the God knowing.
Maybe God just wants it to be harder for student who believe in him to get a gun.

I want anyone who reads this to understand, I did not want to engage in any email exchange with vile Joooo hater, Mark Glenn. He is certifiably insane as anyone will be able to tell by reading the following. I also want to let people know that he emailed me using different addies at both my gmail and Yahoo mail accounts, while I was attempting to block the emails. I think gmail won't block mail if you still have mail from that person showing in your inbox. Here we go:

Your Filth
Atheist Jew et al,

Congratulations, you actually managed to rouse a whopping 5 comments from that huge readership you are always bragging about. I can see now why you are so impressed with yourself.

You know, a few months back when I first ran into you, I wrote you off as just another nut-job who wasn't worth my time. However, after writing that piece the other night with your comments in, it got about 15,000 hits on my website and am selling books ‘out the wazoo as they say. It seems that people are really intrigued reading the kind of filth that is spewed out by sickos like you, kind of like watching those ‘faces of death videos that they used to make a few years back.

So now I am changing my mind and am going to allow your emails (as well as those of your huge readership) to get through, as I have started a new website http://uglyjewishracism.wordpress.com and am going to use it to expose to everyone what you people are really like.

So, as they say have at it, and do not be shy about it, and please pass this message along to the rest of the other vultures in the group, along with my email address.

mg mrkglenn@lycos.com 2:23 PM April 17th
Your letter got one retard to email me other than yourself. And no one left any comments on my blog.
I get 300 hits a day on my blog, plus countless others that read it on aggregate sites.
If you read the comments on my site regarding the child abuse you have performed on your daughter, you will see what normal human beings think of you.

You are vermin. And you will represent the lunatic fringe.

3:38 PM April 17th
WOW 300
Well, at least you are impressed, even if there is little reason for anyone else to be.Yes, I can see why you would want to brag about 300 next to my 15,000.

Here is the part I love--‘lunatic fringe’--you speak non-chalently about 'nuking' a nation of 47 million people, speak about the superiority of the Jews over people such as the Arabs, (as you did a few months ago) and then have the nerve to accuse someone else of being part of the lunatic fringe. You speak like the very same Hitler you presume to despise and are so hypocritical and double-minded that you cannot even see it. Or perhaps you do but you are so intellectually dishonest that you refuse to admit it.

While we are on the topic of lunacy and genetic statistics, how do you account for the fact that Jews are statistically more disposed towards mental illness than any other group of people n the world? Oh, wait, don't tell me, let me guess--because of their superior intellects, right??? Of course, it has to be that, now doesn't it, Bacon? It has nothing to do with the fact that they embrace a way of thinking that is completely rooted in illogical and fallacy.

And as far as child abuse, well, you were raised Jewish, so I suppose you would understand something about that, now wouldn't you? You had that Judaic insanity poured into you on a daily basis that you were better than everyone else and that the world was out to getcha out of envy. You and everything you write on that public toilet of a blog are living proof of that abuse. Angry, vindictive, vulgar, intellectually (and probably physically) violent, as you have indicated with your support of murdering not just tens of millions, but rather hundreds of millions of people, in addition to remarking that my children should have been aborted. And you have the nerve to call other people fascists. The only ones who should be aborted are those who cannot live like rational, compassionate human beings--the Hitlers, Stalins, Sharons, etc, etc, etc of the world who think that they have the right to do onto others whatever they feel like doing, you included.

This is going to be quite a ride, so as I said, don't sugar-coat anything. Resort to your usual business of vulgar, below-the-belt, violent language, as I am determined to make you a star out there.
mrkglenn@lycos.com 7:33 PM April 17th
You are a raving lunatic. A hypocrite and a conspiracy nut. I'm talking about smart bombing Iran. The people are probably the most rational in the entire middle east. The Arab Muslim IQ hovers around 83, so stupidity reigns supreme in the Arab states.
I am blocking you from now on on email. If you have something to say. You can say it in the comment section of my blog.

But you are a waste of space as far as one on one confrontation is concerned. You are full of false assumptions and lies. I don't need to waste my time one on one.

I feel sorry for your children. You should leave them and give them a chance. You've already polluted your poor daughter and stolen her childhood.

You are a sad sad "man"
April 17th
Such fury. Where does it come from? Usually people who do nothing but
rant and rave all the time are diagnosed as mentally ill,and
particularly those who are so vindicitive and who can't express themselves
intellgently without being vulgar. you never answer my question from the other
day, concerning the higher rates of mental illnesses among Jews. Why is
it that they are disproportionally represented. My good friend henry, A
Jew who lost all 4 grandparents in the Holocaust, says that it is
because they wear their minds out through a lifetime of living in a fantasy
world where they perceive themselves as being better than everyone
else. What do you have to say about that, Mr. Piggy?

mg mglenn@mediamonitors.org 8:33AM April 19th

Speaking of insane. I had a feeling you would use your other email addy to leave another message here.
I feel sorry for your daughter. I really do. You are such a self loathing coward.
I'm laughing at you, but sincerely feel for your children. You are one fucked up person. You shouldn't be allowed near children.

9:04 AM April 19th
your vile Jewish supremacism

Thank you! I was beginning to think that maybe you were going to chicken out on my request to send me as much of your vile, Jewish supremacist filth as possible so that I have material to use.

Now, I have a question for you--how do you feel about Arabs and muslims? Please do not hold anything back.

Keep it coming

mg mglenn@mediamonitors.org 10.43 AM April 19th
You are free to ask me on my blog. Coward. It is funny how you won't
allow comments on your blog by people other than Jewhaters and
Muslims. Hilarious. The comments on my blog about the abuse you've
put your daughter through is representative of what normal people
think you. The overwhelming consensus is that you are human feces.

Nothing more, nothing less.
I'll give you all the material you want on my blog. But I'm done
engaging with filth like you one on one.
Thanks for reminding me I didn't block you on gmail, vermin.
Like I said, it is hilarious and typical of your ilk to not allow
comments that prove you to be a Joooo paranoid retard.
Librescu is typical of the Joooooooish mindset you say exists. You,
on the other hand are representative of 100's of years of inbreeding
and intolerance.

Eat shit and die. Follow your leader, and put a gun to your head and
pull the trigger, self loathing child abusing coward.

Don't bother replying here, you will be blocked. But I will allow
your comments to be posted on my blog. I have no problem confronting
your insanity in an open forum, scum.
11:03 AM April 19th
NOTE: This was a repeat email he sent to my gmail account as well. I didn't notice it because I just read his insane ramblings quickly, usually.

mg mrkglenn@lycos.com 11:52 AM April 19th
You must be mentally ill. I feel for your children. Get help.
12:58 PM April 19th
Mr. Piggy,

I knew you were nothing but a coward, intellectually, morally, and in all other ways. This is the reason why you have to have that loser-of-a-blog, as a way of inviting people into 'your' territory where you fight dirty. you cannot even address ONE issue I brought up unless it done so in an arena with all your sycophant co-lunatics present so that you can feel secure. you are like Commodus in the movie Gladiator who had to stab his opponent in the back before the fight so that he was sure he had the upper hand.

You know, growing up, we always knew when we were dealing with a coward on the playground. When he fought, he always fought dirty, never man-to-man. That is what you are. You have the perfect opportunity to fight me man-to-man and you won't. you won't even address the issues I bring up, and you know why--because you wold get your ass kicked, just as you have throughout your life. That's ok, I will just continue to 'pop in' and say hello to you until you DO finally have the guts to answer.

That's the really easy part about dealing with double-minded lunatics such as yourself--you always wind up blowing a gasket. People like you are your own worst enemies, and always have been , which is why you have been unwelcome in every poitical environment in which you have dwelt. you are like viruses that the body rejects as a matter of self-preservation. Like vomit, mucous and diarreah.
mglenn@mediamonitors.org 1:54 PM April 19th
I'll address you on any public forum, but not on email. No point.
You are the coward who doesn't allow others to comment on your blog.
I would fight you there, but you know you will get the shit kicked out
of you if you allowed comments. I tried leaving comments on a few of
your friends blogs, and they all got deleted.
And all I did was ask
questions and wasn't disrespectful at all.
Your ilk can't handle the truth.
I sincerely feel sorry for your daughter and other children you most
likely have brainwashed with hatred. You are no better than a child
molester. You've ruined their lives
Oh and you just did a great job of describing yourself with this email
post of yours.

Btw, you must be mentally ill. I'm trying to block your messages and
told you I won't engage in debate on email. You must love being
humiliated or something. Get help. Or kill yourself and save your
children if it isn't too late.
2:41 PM April 19th
Mr. Piggy,

You are nothing but a filthy, violent, vulgar, foul-mouthed coward who lives in a dream world. 'Not disrespectful?' There isn't a vile word that comes out of your mouth that isn't vulgar and violent.

The best part of all of it though is the hypopcrisy--you lecturing others on 'hate' and 'intolerance' and 'ugliness'--it's like listening to Larry Flynt give a talk on chastity. You are nothing but a liar and Jesus and Mhammed both had you and your type pegged perfectly when they both said that lying was your native tongue. Nothing but a bunch of spitting vipers who can do nothing but evil. It is people like you who go down in history as the worst that humanity has to offer. you call others nazis but you talk just like one with your nauseating supremacist garbage laced with vulgar sexual overtones and violence. I grew up in a family full of medical doctors and saw all sorts of patients who suffered from schizophrenia, pshychosis, take your pick, but I have NEVER uncountered someone as far gone as you, and I am sure that we have only scratched the surface.

'Kill myself?' why would I do that? I have way too much to live for, a gorgeous wife and 8 intelligent, compassionate, beautiful children who have to be warned away from people such as you. It appears however that you on the other hand, have NOTHING to live for except for a handful of people who read your little screed on the net and who are as unhappy and share your parasitic, violent, haughty world view.

As I said, PLEASE keep it coming. There are a lot of people out there who love reading this stuff and who really do want to know who their enemies are.

May God forgive you for what you have become

mg mglenn@mediamonitors.org 2:55 PM April 19th
You are genuinely insane. I feel sorry for your children, I really
do. You belong in a mental ward.
Don't worry, my readers are gonna
love this email exchange.
You should kill yourself because you are in the process of ruining 8
lives and maybe more.
You are nothing but a cancer on humanity. Beat yourself on the chest
little man. Because all you have are your fists.

3:04 PM

Oh, here is one of Mark's supporters. He sent me an email yesterday:

Collins is another retard who thinks the Mossad was behind 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination.

I did a blog search of Mark Glenn yesterday and found a few blogs that linked his USS Liberty story. Of course, the sites either didn't approve my comments or deleted them quickly. All I did was ask what the motive was if Israel did it on purpose? Joooo haters have had 40 years to figure out a motive, but I've yet to hear one that makes any sense. Without a motive, there are only two reasons 1. Human error and 2. Temporary insanity by one or two people tops (whoever gave the orders) or 3. A bad decision by one or two people tops (whoever gave the orders)

In other words, the Liberty bombing can not be pinned on Israel...one or two people, but not Israel. It is like blaming America for the friendly fire death of Canadians a couple of years back. It is just plain stupid.

This is a great idea. Judelicious, one of the "leaders" of the Youtube Atheists, solicited fellow atheists to send in videos of themselves "singing" parts of songs that she picked out. Here is the Youtube Atheist version of Bohemian Rhapsody. I'm feature twice, and Daisy the Atheist Border Collie is featured once as well. OK, she is really Agnostic. I lied to get her in. Oh, and I'm not sure if the atheist who blew his brains out in this video is alright, or even alive. I wonder if they we able to sew his head back up and attached it to his neck.

I apologize for my "Mamma" line, it was grossly off key. But remember, I was suffering with laryngitis when I performed it. Terrible excuse, I know.

I didn't participate in the following Atheist video. But it is pretty fun to watch.
WARNING: You will not be able to get this song out of your head for days and perhaps weeks after viewing this. You will wake up tomorrow morning to it playing in your head


Thanks again to Judelicious1971 for giving me the opportunity to participate in the video, and perhaps more to come. And I'm sure the editing wasn't easy either. With that in mind, I will post your message about your charity:

"And if you enjoyed this, think about making a donation to my children´s charity. My charity focuses on children with physical deformities, cleft palates, those who have suffered burns and need skin expansion surgeries, or those born with fingers fused together. The majority of the work is with cleft palate children but my aim is to help ANY child who needs help, no matter what part of their body doesn´t work properly."

April 16, 2007


Yes I was right, mental defect assmonkey, Mark Glenn should never have had children. He will leave a legacy of hate. It is sad. Apparently he has burdened the world with four children, who's only chance of becoming normal human beings is to either escape their pathetic father, or realize what a piece of crap they have for a dad. If teaching hate to children was a crime, the vermin Mark Glenn would be in jail for life.

I've taken on the human feces Mark before. First through email, which prompted a couple of blog posts here and here.

Mark Glenn's life is preoccupied with hatred of Jews, and he will die a pathetic paranoid freak. It is not too late for his children. And lets focus on budding writer, Stefania Glenn, 14. Probably the pride of her dad. Right now, it isn't looking for her future. Her teenage years which should be full of wonder and experience have most likely been consumed by anti-Jewish (I won't say semitic because I don't want retards to jump all over it with their idiotic definitions) propaganda and disgusting brainwashing.
I invite Stefania to read the following and to ask questions. And not look to her father for guidance. Here is my rebuttal to an article she wrote, Settling the Score with the Goldsteins. I'm even going to be nice, because I know she is just the product of severe brainwashing, and by having a father such as hers, it is like being in mental hell. I sincerely feel sorry for her, as I do for her siblings:

Yes, I know, Mr. Goldstein, I’ve heard all about it. I’ve heard all about the Holocaust, when 6 million or 6 billion or 6 trillion or 6 gazillion–or however many Jews you want–were murdered by mean old Hitler.
It was most likely between 5 and 6 million. Do you envy Hitler? I'm just curious.

I’ve heard all about the diary of Anne Frank, the Jewish girl who died in a German concentration camp during World War II. I’ve heard all about your people’s persecution in Russia. I’ve heard all about how your people have been despised and oppressed all over the world. Yes, I know, I know! You don’t need to remind me AGAIN that for nearly two thousand years you have been without a country.
The only person reminding you is your dad. You really should just take history, learn, and then have fun. You are 14 years old. Do Jews stop you from having fun?

How could I possibly forget these things? You and your paid liars never get tired of screaming insensibly about all the inhuman crimes that have been committed against the Jews.
What paid "liars" ? Seriously, what are you talking about? What lies, and who is getting paid to lie. Do you not agree that Jews in the past were persecuted? Do you not think what happened during the Holocaust or Spanish Inquisition was inhumane? Was it humane?

About the only thing we ever hear these days is that your people, the Jews, have suffered horribly throughout history and that we (the non-Jews) must make amends with you in every way possible.
Where do you hear these things? I went to school in Toronto, and I don't think I learned one thing about the Holocaust, or that Jews were seeking payback, and that was over 25 years ago. Honestly, what bull is your father feeding you?

Well, Mr. Goldstein, here in the United States of America, we have done everything within our power to pay you back. I don’t know what else you could possibly want. We helped you acquire your own country.
I have my own country, it is Canada. Are you talking to American Jews? What is your country? As far as Israel goes, yes the US helped with the UN's decision to start a Jewish governed territory. So what?

We stood by silently while you murdered hundreds of innocent Palestinian civilians at Deir Yassin, so that your desire to have a country of your own could be fulfilled.
That is very selective history. You do realize that the US also stood by when many Jews were murdered by Arabs. Or that doesn't count. And the actual count of Deir Yassin was no more than 120, though it is still not something many Jews are proud of. It did happen during a civil war.

We send ten billion dollars of American tax money to Israel every year, even though America is already in debt up to her eyebrows. We are constantly hiring some blabbermouth to rant and rave to America about “God’s chosen people” and how they have always been “under attack” and how we must rescue them from “all the Hitlers of the world”.
Can you link something about the 10 billion dollars? America does give aid and loans to Israel, but don't fool yourself, they do it for numerous reasons that benefit the USA. Every religious person on this planet think they are in the chosen religion. If you are a Catholic, you think you are in God's true religion. You think your religion is the best in God's eyes. Correct? If not, are you saying there isn't a correct religion? Then you agree with me. All religions are wrong.
And I think it is natural to want to have anyone who wants you dead eliminated. Don't you?

We are never finished hearing about your precious Holocaust, since it seems that you would never be able to exist without it. You are the kings of this country. We have licked your boots for so long that you don’t have any boots left…
Oh, thanks for reminding me about the Holocaust. You seem to like to remember it. Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. And to be honest, this is the first time I started thinking about it in at least a few months. Thanks for keeping it alive.
I need to ask, have you ever discussed these paranoid sentiments with a real Jew? I don't know where you are coming up with this "we seem to not be able to exist without it" junk.

…So now, Mr. Goldstein, please tell me, because I am dying of curiosity to know what it is that you want. What more can we possibly do for you? How can you still be unhappy with the way you are treated?
Who is unhappy? Your dad probably is, and you will certainly be if you follow in his footsteps. Jews would like to be able to live without being attacked. Is that asking a lot?

Do you think you are the only group of people that has ever suffered? That is one of the most conceited things I have ever heard. Very typical of you, though.
Actually whoever taught you this is wrong. No Jew on this planet I know states that Jews are the only ones who have ever suffered.

I cannot pretend to be shocked or even mildly surprised at this idea. It is just too typical. After all, don’t you also view yourselves as a superior race?
Since when are Jews a race. An ethnicity yes, but not a race. Superior, well I don't like to brag, but Jews tend to have great family values, great educations and because of the other two, usually do well financially compared to other ethnicities.
If that makes Jews superior, then Jews are superior.

Don’t you call the rest of us non-Jews “goyim” or “cattle”?
No, my wife isn't a Jew, I've never called her goyim or cattle. I've called her a bitch though, but it had nothing to do with her ethnicity. Your father has brainwashed you that Jews are brought up with the Protocols of Zion, and that is a lie. Again, you need to talk to real Jews and see for yourself.

You really are the most self-centered group of people there has ever been.
Like the Italians or the blacks in the hood?

Therefore, I really can’t be surprised that you would entertain the absurd idea that the Jewish people are the only sufferers in the world.
Again, that is a lie. Educate yourself. But have fun first....forget this nonsense (wishful thinking on my part).

Or at least, that their suffering is the only suffering that truly counts. 66 million Russians died during and after the Bolshevik Revolution.
Do you really care about what Lenin who baptized a Christian did? Do you care about what Muslims are doing to Muslims in Darfur?

However, nobody seems to feel any sort of special obligation to the Russians the way they do for your 6 million. I have always been horrible at math, but it is unquestionable even in my mind that Russia’s 66 million greatly overshadows your 6 million. But never mind that, Mr. Goldstein. The Russians really don’t matter that much. What we need to concentrate on is how many other things we should be doing for you.
Like I said, I don't care what you do for Jews. Jews just want to be left to live in peace. As far as the Russians who died during WW2 vs. Jews who died: Russians died because of war, fighting for territory, while Jews were murdered for having Jewish parents. And more than 75% of the Jewish population of Europe were murdered for being Jewish, not because of a territorial conflict.

Now come on, just tell me. What do you want? What can we do that will make you happy?
You can learn some real history, and I'll start smiling. Or run away from home so you have a chance to become a decent human being.

If there is anything that we have not already done for you, tell me what it is, and we’ll be sure to do it right away. If you were anyone else, I would encourage you not to be shy in making your demand, but as I have never known you to be short on boldness or nerve, I see no point in warning you against what you yourself would never even think of doing. So go ahead, shoot. Tell me what we have not yet done for you. Go ahead, I’m listening.
The only one you are listening to is your pathetic twerp of a father. Are you that far gone?

Oh, my goodness, Mr. Goldstein, you make me laugh! No, no! I heard you perfectly! You don’t need to keep screaming it over and over again. I heard you. You said that the thing you want is for us to submit our very beings to you. In short, become your slaves. (You see? I KNEW I didn’t need to worry about any shyness on your part!) You say we have not become your slaves? Who do you think you are trying to fool? We are your slaves. We have been for years! Only slaves would bow to your every wish the way we have. Was I not clear when I said earlier that we have been licking your boots for so long that you don’t even have any boots left? Yeah, okay then. We’ll buy you a new pair of boots since we have apparently wronged you by licking them off. What?! You want them made out of solid diamond?! We can’t afford that! How about we just get a pair of sneakers from the thrift store? Oh, okay, never mind, never mind! We’ll get you the diamond. Your wish is our command. But boy, oh, BOY! I just can’t get over what you said about us not being your slaves! In fact, I can’t stop laughing. Now, please, Mr. Goldstein, PLEASE, will you stop screaming like that? You are a somewhat disturbing spectacle with that blood vessel popping out of your neck, your mouth covered in froth and your eyes bulging two inches out of your head. Calm down! It really isn’t good for your health to throw these violent temper tantrums.
Nobody is screaming. But like I said you seriously need some deprogramming. Slaves?
Jews make up 2% of the American population. And many of the people have grown up ignorant like yourself, and make stuff up or listen to paranoid lunatic rants from parents.

All right. Now that you have finally gotten yourself under control, perhaps you can rationally answer the question that I am about to ask you. Ready? Okay, then; is it possible (in your mind, at least) that the Jews have suffered so much that we gentiles will never be able to repay you? Will we never be able to refill the great hole of your suffering? Will you never be satisfied with our efforts to appease you?
I'll be happy when filth like your father cease to exist. Other than that I'm happy.

I heard you answer in the affirmative.
Well then, you haven't been paying attention.

Well, I must admit that I am glad to know that. Since we now know that you can never be happy–that despite the whole world’s concentrated efforts, it is impossible to ever repay you, and that making you happy is a flat impossibility, maybe we can turn our attention over to another subject.
So far all you've said has been pointless rhetoric and lies you were taught.

Maybe since what we have been trying to accomplish all these years is utterly impossible, we can just forget it and focus on what is possible. I am only being reasonable, Mr. Goldstein, when I ask ‘what are you going to do to repay us for all the suffering that you have caused?’
I knew this was coming.

How are you going to repay all the Palestinians whose land you stole and whose children you have been murdering for over half a century?
That is false. Land must be owned before it can be stolen. Land is either owned and/or governed. Israel didn't become sovereign territory until 1948. Before then Arabs owned 20% of what is now Israel. Only 3.3% of the land was owned by Arabs who actually lived there. I'll grant you that some of the land (very little) is disputable and possibly stolen. But what can you expect when you win 5 wars against those who want your total destruction. Babies wouldn't die if terrorists didn't hide behind them. In fact, if the Arabs dropped their arms there would be peace in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.

How are you going to repay the millions of babies that you have murdered in abortion clinics?
History lesson: Abortion goes back to the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. How can you pin abortions on Jews (though many Jews are pro choice), when countries like Turkey have legalized abortion. Modern day abortion was invented by Christians.

How are you going to repay the families of the thousands of Americans who died on September 11th?
By nuking Iran maybe (yes I know Iran wasn't responsible either. But it was radical Islam all the way. And Iran's leadership sure does resemble radical Islam) You think Jews were behind 9/11? That is seriously sick and twisted denial. It was radical Muslims. And Muslims have been paying for it and will continue to do so.

How are you going to repay the Iraqis for destroying their country? How are you going to repay the families of the American soldiers who have died in Iraq?
If Jews had a say in destroying a country in the middle east it would have been Iran or Saudi Arabia. Not Iraq.
But the radical Muslims did need a good bitch slapping for 9/11.
They needed to see who is boss. Sometimes innocent lives are lost so mankind can carry on, as was the case in Hiroshima. Sometimes talk won't work, sometimes you need to show excessive force to end a conflict.

How are you going to repay the Lebanese for ruining their country?
Lebanon allowed their country to be ruined by allowing known terrorists (Hezbollah) to quietly set up shop and get ready for a conflict with Israel. Israel has every right to defend herself.

How are you going to repay all those who suffer under communism, which is another invention of yours?
Lenin was Christian, Marx was a Jew. I don't feel like I owe anything for Marx. Why should I? Should Catholics owe for Hitler? There is nothing in Judaism teachings that leads one to become a communist. It was an individual's invention.

How are you going to repay the Muslims for all the lies that you have told about them?
What lies? Name them. Jews tell the truth mostly. Muslims don't give straight answers. They refuse to be confronted with their lies, just like your father, who closes comments on his pathetic hate speeches.

How are you going to repay all the Christians that you martyred when Christianity was still new?
Huh? I have no idea what you are talking about here. Roman killed the Christians for the most part.

You’re speechless, Mr. Goldstein, but I can read your answer in the hatred of your eyes.
I'm not speechless. I just can't believe that you think you have any argument at all or that you have made one relevant point. Amazing.

You will never try to repay us for the suffering that you have caused. You will never even apologize.
What suffering? I still don't see any suffering caused by even a group of Jews.

And what is more you will continue to treat us Gentiles in this inhuman and merciless manner. You will never voluntarily stop. You will never attempt in any manner to repay us…
What inhuman way? You've made no points, but you probably made your dad very happy in many places.

…but that’s alright, don’t worry, we’ll repay you…

We will repay you for every injustice that you have caused. We will repay you for every drop of innocent blood that you have spilled, and it is possible to do so. Just wait and see, you will be served justice one day.
Oh, I see ITZ COMING. Yet you have no reason for revenge. You need to read up on real history. You are caught up in a cause that doesn't exist in the real world. But daddy is proud of you.

A very wise, just, merciful man from Nazareth whom you also killed once said to your leaders ‘Upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on Earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zachariah.’ I have never doubted His words…He always knew what He was talking about.
Actually, if you do some research, you'll find that it is very unlikely that Jesus ever existed. The words you are quoting are words that were written 200 years "after the fact" And they were written by writers who didn't want to piss off the Romans but thought the Jews were expendable. Oh, and I'm not just picking on Christianity. There is no evidence the Exodus happened either.

I will not try to convert you, Mr. Goldstein because I know that it is impossible. Remember, that we are now focusing on possibilities. So, since you refuse to become a human being by leaving your primitive, savage way of thinking, I will only warn you. Of course, you will not listen to me, but I will do it anyway. I warn you that things are going to be changing. You will be experiencing justice for the 1st time in your life. There is a day coming when humanity will get sick of being treated like animals. They are going to find out why they have suffered so much. They are going to be angry. And guess what? You are going to be the object of their rage. You are going to get a triple-dose of your own medicine, which ought to please you, since you always want more of anything than anyone else has. You are going to discover how human beings act when they see a glimmer of hope after being beaten down all their lives.
Have Jews really been beating you up? How has a Jew personally affected you? Thanks for the warning though. You've only warned me that some children suffer tremendous abuse at the hands of their parents. Not sure about your mother, but your father is a serious nutcase, and he is taking you with him.

There, I have now told you what to expect one day. Now when it happens, you won’t be able to rant, rave, scream, kick, holler, howl and screech about how ‘it isn’t fair’ because nobody every warned you.
This from a 14 year old girl. Do you realize how sad you look to normal human beings?

Well, Mr. Goldstein, I am sure that you do not like my tone. I can see that by the blood vessel in your neck that has finally burst that you do not like what I am saying at all. But considering every injustice that you have caused, every suffering that you have aided, all the innocent blood that you have spilled, I would say that this is merely a feeble attempt of mine to settle the score between us. I don’t see why you are so furious with me. After all, I am only trying to pay you back. isn’t that the very thing that you have wanted for so many years?
2006 by Stefania Glenn
Wow. Seriously, move in with an aunt or go to a foster home. You will be better off in the long run. I really don't think you even know what you are talking about. You've been taught to hate much like the Muslim children in the West Bank and Gaza.
I just hope you aren't capable of strapping a bomb on yourself and then killing yourself with a bunch of innocents. You seriously need some heavy deprogramming. I feel very sorry for you. You are wasting your life over irrational baseless hate.

Note: The white supremacists at Vanguard love Stefania. I wonder if they know she is an ethnic semite (her scum father is a supposedly of Lebanese Christian heritage). Doesn't that make her a mud in KKK talk?

June Callwood RIP: Canada's Conscience Was Also An Atheist

She didn't believe in God. She believed in kindness instead.

One of Canada's icons passed away yesterday. June Callwood: journalist, author, and humanitarian extraordinaire died after gallantly losing her fight with cancer.

Normally, I don't blog about these things. I never met her, like many bloggers who have written tributes have. I never read any of her books either. But then again, I haven't read many of anyone's books:) I'm writing this because her life and death completely contradicts many of the assumptions made by theists regarding atheists.

A quick biography from FICCDAT:

"Known as "Canada's Conscience," June Callwood's career has been marked by compassion and a strong concern for social justice, especially on issues affecting children and women. A prolific and versatile author, she has written more than 30 books and countless magazine articles. Her career in television has included the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation program In Touch (1975-78), and the recent Caregiving with June Callwood, a program that provides assistance to people caring for parents, spouses or others.

Despite a busy writing life, she has also founded and co-founded more than 50 social action organizations, including Nellie's hostel for women, Jessie's, a centre for teenage parents, Casey House Hospice for AIDS patients, and PEN Canada. Her extensive volunteer work has been recognized by many honours including the Order of Canada (1986), and "Woman of the Year," B'nai B'rith, (1969). She is an Honourary Marching Mother of Ontario March of Dimes."

Here is her last interview. I believe it was done around a month ago:

Of note, she has accepted death, and contrary to the old theist claim that atheists become believers when death approaches, she is very firm that there is no God and no afterlife. And she is completely fine with it.

She made a point about being in her 80's and accepting death. I think this is part of the evolution process too. My guess is that most people in their 80's and 90's who are dying, are just content with the idea of dying regardless of beliefs or lack thereof. The body and mind is content with the idea that their time has come just like the spider Charlotte, and she wasn't even one years old.

She also made mention of the fact that humans almost have the need to do good for each other. It makes us satisfied. And we don't need to buy into a religion and their doctrines to "hold a door open for one another." Our morality and ethics don't come from God; we evolved them. And those who do not consider God, don't go out and rape and pillage. That is just theist baloney. We are hardwired so that if we do something good for someone, we get a bit of a rush in our brains, and subconsciously (and/or consciously) we know there is also a good chance that the other person will do something good because of your act. For social animals likes humans, this behaviour helps our species live to see a next generation.

She was married to the same man, sportswriter Trent Frayne, for 62 years. How many theists can make the same claim?

She went through tragedy when her youngest son died at 20 in a car crash. A drunk driver killed him. She went on to turn it into a positive (as best anyone could) by founding a now famous Aids hospice in her son's name: The Casey House. A longer biography and tribute can be found at their website here.

Upon doing a blog search, I found a tribute to her by a believer. The last paragraph is disturbing:

"Her end of life discussion was sad for she is an atheist. I wish her the best as she goes on to the next life. I will pray for her."

Oh, I get it. Her next life will be in hell, despite how good a person she was on earth. That is why she needs you to pray for her. And how will your praying help her? Got that one figured out yet?

Actually, that comment by the theist was very sad.

Global Warming: What "They" Don't Want Us To Know

Do you think "they" are really going to tell us the truth about Global Warming? No chance. "They" are getting ready to leave our earth and go to another solar system, it is important that we are not informed until "they" safely leave. The fact is that Global Warming started in 1961, and it has nothing to do with being man-made. Moving to Toronto won't help anyone either. We are doomed, doomed I tells you:

My real thoughts on Global Warming: I think man does have a hand in it, but I think it is small. Cars weren't around for the last ice age, or any ice age for that matter. The fact is that oxygen levels on earth and the earth's atmosphere has never been a constant over time. Changes in oxygen levels have been around since the beginning of the planet, more than 6000 years ago (oh, and less than 5 billion years ago too), and these changes have led to major extinctions, and up until now, man wasn't around for those other "end times."

Changes in the earth's atmosphere gave rise to the dinosaurs, but science giveth and science taketh awayeth; atmospheric change also killed off the dinosaurs. Of course, the death of the dinosaurs allowed for man to be king of the world.

Animals have started evolving already because of the new climate. For example, the pitcher plant mosquito is being observed to change it's breeding habits.

Are we evolved enough to handle the inevitable changes that are in store for planet earth? In the long run though, it won't matter. As Stardust points out, the earth is toast.

Pope Pretty Much Admits He Is An Agnostic

All you have to do is read between the lines in the new German book, Schoepfung und Evolution (Creation and Evolution), and it is pretty evident that Pope Benedict is an agnostic who is trying to keep his sham religion alive (all religions are shams, but some are shammier than others).

First off, the Pope stayed clear of the ID "argument" altogether, which is a pretty clear admission that knows Behe and Dumbski are full of garbage, and he also stayed clear of creationist crapola too.

Lets look at the quotes shall we:

"Science has opened up large dimensions of reason ... and thus brought us new insights.....science has narrowed the way life's origins are understood and Christians should take a broader approach to the question."

What you really are saying that science has disproved the idea of a young earth and creationism, and the only way to keep the Catholic church alive in light of scientific fact is to come up with new bullshit reasons for why God would have done things the way he did it.

"the Darwinist theory of evolution is not completely provable because mutations over hundreds of thousands of years cannot be reproduced in a laboratory....We cannot haul 10,000 generations into the laboratory."

Notice the word "completely"? Yes, scientists know that it is impossible to do millions of years of evolution in a lab. And yes, many people will say that unless they see something for themselves it can't be "completely" provable. But what you the Pope, does admit, is that the earth is much older than 10,000 years. And that your only defense against evolution is that fact it takes too damn long for species changes to occur. Popey, you are admitting that evolution is fact, in other words.

"But it is also true that the theory of evolution is not a complete, scientifically proven theory."
Well duh. There is no such thing as a scientifically proven theory. You are trying to pull a fast one here, in order to keep the Catholics, who would think about changing religions, if you admitted to being an agnostic evolutionist.

"The question is not to either make a decision for a creationism that fundamentally excludes science, or for an evolutionary theory that covers over its own gaps and does not want to see the questions that reach beyond the methodological possibilities of natural science."

Yep, the old theistic evolution argument. I like it much better than the YEC argument. Actually, I like it a lot better. But see, here is the thing. You realize that scientific theory is based on observable facts. But you have to come up a reason to keep the flock together by trying to invent a big picture, that you have no proof of, or no evidence of. This makes you agnostic. An agnostic is someone who deep down hopes there is a God, knowing full well there is no evidence of one. They hope that there is a bigger picture and a guiding hand, but really know that there isn't. As gaps become less and less, more agnostics have the courage to state they are atheist. I doubt you will admit you are an Atheist, Benedict. You are too old to change your agnostic ways.

"I find it important to underline that the theory of evolution implies questions that must be assigned to philosophy and which themselves lead beyond the realms of science."

Well actually the theory of evolution doesn't have to imply philosophical questions, unless you are hoping for something that almost for sure isn't there. Without philosophical questions about evolution, you have no reason to keep up the charade of Catholicism, right Popey?

"The process (evolution) itself is rational despite the mistakes and confusion as it goes through a narrow corridor choosing a few positive mutations and using low probability.....This ... inevitably leads to a question that goes beyond science ... where did this rationality come from?..... it came from the creative reason of God."

So evolution is confusing because scientist don't ask why it is happening philosophically? I got you Popey, nudge nudge wink wink. It is about time you threw in the word "God." I was starting to worry about you forgetting about what your job is. Like I said, without making evolution (which you seem to embrace as 100% fact) philosophical, you got zero, and you might as well turn the Vatican into a Mosque, because Muslims aren't as enlightened as you are.

"Just who is this nature or evolution as (an active) subject? It doesn't exist at all!....evolution has a rationality that the theory of purely random selection could not explain."

Are you now saying evolution and nature are God? Isn't that just renaming evolution and nature? You are starting to sound like a Buddhist now.
C'mon Popey, don't start pretending you don't know what evolution and that it is a lot more than purely random selection. I can see right through you. You are worried, as you should be that Catholics start leaving your church and become Muslims or Evangelist Christians, science forbid. Actually, I have respect for that, you are trying to help out mankind by not admitting your true beliefs, and creating more ass backward Fundies.

Hey Popey, how come no mention of Jesus? You must be reading my blog, and have concluded that the dude never existed.

I might as well add this video that AngloAmerican posted in my comments since it fits with the Catholic theme. Most atheists probably have seen this already. I saw it yesterday for the first time:

Thoughts on Passover and Easter

First off, I stayed clear of both celebrations this year. I didn't even accompany my wife to my neighbour's house for Easter turkey, or whatever it is people eat on Easter.

I admit, I watched a few National Geographic's and Discovery Civilization "documentaries" about Jesus and the Exodus. Now, you have to understand, it has only been three years since I made the discovery that a historical Jesus and a historical Exodus have zero contemporary evidence attached to either. I always assumed that lots of Jews left Egypt around 3200 years ago, and that Jesus was a Jewish rebel rabbi.

For me, it started innocently enough. I was just looking for descriptions of what Jesus looked like from historical sources, because at the time there was lots of news about Mel Gibson's The Passion, which was just announced as going into production.

I started doing internet searches, and wound up finding out that there is no historical evidence that Jesus even existed. In fact, there were lots of similar stories to what the Christ story evolved into over time. There is historical evidence that the similar stories were part of the cultural myths, and they were there way before Jesus supposedly lived.

The Exodus revelation happened for me in a similar way. Actually a Jew hater asked for evidence that Jews left Egypt around 3200 years ago. Again, I did my internet searches, and now I'm convinced that Judaism most likely combined the Zoroastrian beliefs and the monotheistic views of Akhenaten. There is very little out there to make me believe that Judaism even existed prior around 700 BC and perhaps, it is even younger than that, when Ezra wrote the myths down. That could have easily been the birth of Judaism. For sure, there is no evidence whatsoever that Jews were slaves in Egypt, and the numbers who supposedly left were improbable regardless of evidence (but so are the plagues).

Watching from the perspective of knowing that no evidence exists, when tons of evidence should exist (please apologists, just shut up on this one), I just shook my head a lot and watched theologians and pseudo historians explain what happened.

To me, when it comes to these dolts trying to figure out/make excuses as to whether Mary Magdalene and Jesus were married or had sex, for example, is like watching someone trying to figure out if The Cat In The Hat was gay or not.

If you take a step back, and listen to all the speculation and excuses, like why it took 40 years for Jews to cross the Sinai, when it takes 10 days to walk it going into a gale force wind, you just have to laugh...........if you are a rational human being, that is.

Both the Jesus story, and the Exodus story, sound like children's stories to me now. I just can't get over how easy it is for so many adults to fall for these obvious make believe tales.

I guess if the stories were based on real people and events, the stories would never have made past the 200's.

The Internet Atheist Movement

I made this video to make atheists aware of all the great resources and sites that are available on the internet. Atheists are becoming more fearless...OK, less intimidated, to speak up about ourselves and our non beliefs:

Live Science has a funny piece called The Coulter Hoax. Even Live Science is taking pot shots at the reality denying Fundies. I love it.

The internet will be the death of the Young Earth Creationist movement. It is just a matter of time.

The Thinking Blogger Award

Beep! Beep! It's Me has tagged me. Here are the original rules from The Thinking Blog:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote
4. Only choose blogs that haven't been picked before (this one wasn't one of the original rules)

OK, this is a tough one. All of the blogs on my blogroll make me think. And even blogs by retards make me think. In fact, I'm thinking right now and I'm not even reading a blog. I really don't like this tagging stuff. I apologize in advance for those who I am tagging, especially if they feel compelled like I did, to continue with this insanity:

1. Everything Is Pointless: I sometimes hesitate going to his blog because I know it will force me to think more than I want to.

2. Babble, Bullshit, Blasphemy, & Being (AKA Choose Doubt): The closest thing to a Vulcan Atheist in the blogosphere.

3. Scientia Natura: Evolution and Rationality: Really good spins on current stories from a science chick.

4. The Sudanese Thinker: He reminds me that there might be a light at the end of the tunnel for humanity, and that the third world has thinkers too.

5. Gripes Of Wrath: Must make me think, because I often comment on his blog. The thing is, he is like me, an Atheist who understands the threat of Islam.

More Fun Using Peanut Butter To Disprove Evolution

I decided to expand on the scientific "logic" used in the now famous creationist Peanut Butter video (I even go out of character for it):

Damn laryngitis is impeding on my full creative genius.

Here is the original version of Peanut Butter: The Atheist's Nightmare in case you are one of the very few who hasn't seen it:

Maybe a few of my readers can do a video or just a post disproving evolution too. It is kind of fun.

What else? Oh, I made a minor edit in the Atheism page of the Uncyclopedia.

I just made an edit to the Atheism entry:
==The Difference Between Atheists and Agnostics==

There is only one distinct difference between an atheist and an agnostic. An atheist will not turn down eating a fetus if it is offered to them, while an agnostic will always say no if offered.

A strong atheist is someone who goes out of his or her way to eat fetuses, while a weak atheist will not be the one to buy or cook a fetus. A weak atheist is sort of like the guy at the party who never buys pot, but will never turn down a toke when it is offered to him.

Note: This is the second time within a week I placed the above on the Atheism page. Someone trashed it the first time. I don't get it. I think it is pretty funny.

Hamas and Fatah Unite: Invite Jews Back To Gaza

In a complete reversal of policy and ideology, Hamas leader Ismail Haniya and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas united and vowed to embrace Israel as their only real friend in the middle east. They also have decided to drop the title of Palestinians, stating that they are just simply Arabs living in Gaza and the West Bank.
They formally agreed to disintegrate the two parties of Hamas and Fatah, and call the new party The Democratic Party of Gazan and West Bank Arabs. Abbas is now the President, while Haniya gladly took the Vice-President position. Abdul Aziz Duaik will now be the Secretary of State.
Haniya was quoted as saying, "When the Gaza sewer collapsed, and the Jews in Israel were the only group on the planet to offer help. it made me realize that Israel is our only friends and that the surrounding Arab countries have used us for 59 years as pawns. They don't give a rats ass about us, and it is clear now, that they never did. We realize now it was a terrible mistake to make Gaza a Jew free zone, and we invite all Jews from anywhere on the planet to live with us in peace."
Abbas decided to drop the title "Palestinians," stating, "the word has nothing but negative connotations associated with it and it is also a deceptive word as there never has been a nation known as Palestine."
On the Right of Return issue, Abbas added, "how silly is that?, I mean, who cares where our grandparents and great grandparents squatted? Right of return is just another stupid concept invented by our Arab neighbours as a way to keep us in contempt of our great Jewish allies."

In other news, David Duke has been seen dating Halle Berry, Mad Zionist is converting to Islam, and Gert (from Developing Your Web Presence) has just bought a home in Hebron.

OK, but seriously, can you believe this article by Reuters? It is nice to see some intelligence coming out of the Palestinians for a change.
