This could possibly be the most annoying phrase in existence.  It is right up there with thanking Jesus for the home run, thanking God for finding your car keys, or announcing proof of a higher being because someone survived a tragedy.  Let’s come back to reality people.  Stimulate some of that unused grey matter, and knock off the bullshit.  Give the fairy tales a rest for a bit will you?  Do you really think that the creator of all of the universe has any interest in the football score?

Nonetheless….here we go into another election season.  God is going to be blessing America left and right.  Every time a politician gets within ten feet of a microphone, God will be invoked.  Mark my words. 

You know what I hear when that ridiculous phrase is regurgitated?  “…and to hell with everyone else!”.  That is pretty much what is intended by the statement anyway.  The creator of the universe is expected to give preferential treatment to one jackass, from some arbitrarily defined piece of ground on a rock hurtling through space around a star at the center of one of billions of galaxies.  Sorry folks, but that does not pass the straight-faced test.

Oh well…I am sure that I will be voting for the lesser of two evils, once again, and regardless of which way I vote, it will be for a numbskull who wears his religion on his sleeve.  It is depressing.

I cannot think of a better way to present such information. Most of us weirdos would rather watch Higgs’ bosom, than learn Higgs Boson. These guys make all the difference in presenting difficult subject matter.

Back to the bosom…

Just in case you didn’t get your Jefferies fix during my last post.

His “Can’t punch women in the face” is an inside joke from earlier in the night…if you wondered…

I just spent the majority of Thursday evening chatting with Durango atheists, where I am a proud member of the Durango Skeptics and Atheists Meetup (also durangofreethinkers.wordpress.com)

Durango, Colorado is a small town in the southwestern extreme of the state. Relatively small potatoes. It is a town surrounded by long and strong histories of Christian homesteading, tribal culture, and college induced hippie love.

Yet…we amassed teachers, moms, engineers, computer scientists, archaeologists, biologists, mathematicians, students, and plain-old-Joes in a small bar to discuss the finer points of rational thought….AGAIN! This small sample size unscientifically tells me that there is a significant population of heathens around.

One point I took away, was that folks are hesitant to “label” themselves as atheist. I remind them…’atheist’ is no different than ‘atypical’. Non-typical. Non-theist. Same same. No belief or faith involved.

Being non-theist simply means that you are not a theist. It does not mean that you have a ‘faith’ in no-faith. Don’t fall for this. The fundies have already written this into their playbook amendment to the Bible, and cannot seem to bring up anything else when they attempt to discredit atheists. (Eric Hovind, and Sye Ten Bruggencate are the gods for the followers of this) Pathetic as they may be.

Regardless….I have partaken in the barley soda family a few times this evening. I must leave now, before creating potential inebriation typing regret.

What floats your boat?

I just thought you might like this photo. As adulterated as it may appear, it is not. Look again. Illusion exists whether it is intentional or not.

Imagine how easy illusion can be, when you actually intend to delude…

Richard Wiseman is the master of gathering these types of photos, as well as bewildering you with simple photographic perspective…among other things. Check him out on YouTube, or his blog.

Wall hanger...

Impressive collection of heathens.
