And where does The Book of Revelation fit in? After all, it’s St. John the Divine’s bad LSD trip. There has to be something sacred about that.
Aside: How the heck do you get a name like St. John the Divine? Do you think he called himself John the Divine? He was a prisoner/slave working in the quarries on a remote Roman possession… Continue

Hamza .. the "international public speaker" of the "islamic education and research academy" (already two jokes in one sentence) was a guy who tried to educate PZ Myers on embryology (three and counting) and the quran's superior knowledge about the topic 1400 years ago. Continue

Penn Jillette’s Private Rock & Roll, Doughnut and Bacon Party Continue
Be forewarned —
This really is Penn’s private party. He’s paying for everything and JREF has nothing to do with it. This party will be whatever Penn wants; it’s not a JREF…

As - SPIEGEL ONLINE - (in German)
reports, we have a nice new device standing in Berlin. It looks like a photo booth, but inside there are no flashlights .. there is just spiritual reflection.
300 prayers in 65 languages, ready to be listened to by religious customers... and the creator already dreaming of a global business.… Continue

The Internet causes draught and terminal disease – so claims a new marketing campaign publicized in the ultra-Orthodox community and aims to curb use of the world wide web. "Where there is Internet, there are no rains," read one of the posters that were pasted in central haredi spots. "Let's remove the idolatry from among us. Hundreds of thousands of cancer patients (suffer) because of the Internet."

A friend just sent me an e-mail with this inofficial "Darwin Award" list, which I thought would be funny to share with this community.

I couldn't help myself last week, when a man was coming through the attraction i worked at, at ScreamPark and yelled "Do you think God would approve of this?" I stopped for a sec, looked back over at him, using his phone to get through, pussy. So i just walked up behind him and said "Of course not, thats why i asked the magical fairy. He said go for it, so im with him now!" And just walked off, he got so pissed that he went to find me, screaming "God will not forgive that comment, he will… Continue

My sister and I were at my house during Labor day and we were pretty much bored. My friend calls me to hang out in my house, I said "sure", he said he had something lined up. When he came over he asked me if I ever did shrooms. I said I never did and probably will never do it. My friend and my sister tried to convince me (even though my sister never tried it), then I came to the conclusion that I pretty much wasted my extra labor day off, and decided to do it.
The first… Continue

Religion---it gave us stained glass, cathedrals, hymns, indoor candles, lots of gold objects to covet, the somber mutterings of Latin to awe us with our own ignorance, thick tapestries to keep Tudor houses warm, a historical record of naked people, The Ten Commandments aka the coolest camp movie of all time, Christmas as we know it in the post-pagan world, Easter eggs, chalices, great excuses for refusing to commit crimes (Dad would kill me), strange dances, somber cemeteries with weathered… Continue

Really enjoyed our local Meetup.com Atheist meetup downtown tonight. We started out at our usual hangout, Banter, but because of an unexpected musical performance, we relocated across the street to Hydrant Cafe, where we could actually converse and not strain our throats and ears.
We did actually experience our first heckler, of a sort, back at Banter; one middle-aged woman felt the need to tell us that "God saved my bacon I don't know how many times."; It took me a second to realize… Continue

So.. I decided to take a lil break from my usual smart ass remarks and political banter to cause some real trouble! :)
I bring this up because I saw the latest installment of Star Trek yesterday, and aside from a few problems I had with it (that I wont mention here for those who havent seen it yet)... I think the movie was mostly pretty brilliant.
I have officially seen every Star Trek movie.. and every Star Wars movie.
So here is my question for my fellow… Continue

How does a religion come into being? Well, in this day and age, maybe by instant message between two friends, late at night, while surfing the internet for interesting stuff…
Here’s the recipe for Hess and Fruity’s Religion:
2: godless heathens
1: internets (can substitute 1 intertoobs, 1 webbernets or 1 ripe interwebs)
1: news article detailing wacky fundamentalist training camp
