The Irony of a Frightened Jehovah

I was watching a profile piece on CBS Sunday Morning about actor Steve Bucemi a bit ago, when I heard that actor in one of his roles offer the following poignant observation:



Do you think God stays in heaven, because he too lives in fear of what he’s created?



If there were a god of any stripe who was responsible for the creation of Homo sapiens, I should think he’d be pissing his pants by now, and with good reason.  Ever since Yahweh made the…

the coin that you pay with is one you once tossed

prisoned inside my private world

i watch dust devils dash and swirl

and lift the skirt of a nubile girl

i hear the wind raping the trees

i see the bruised and battered leaves

come crumbling down around her knees…

Seriously, I'm not Funny.

No, seriously. I'm not. Not Ever. The FBI told me I'd be jailed as a terrorist if I attempted stand-up comedy. Because I'd bomb so bad. I'd be a human bomb. Like a suicide bomber, but comedic in intent instead of socio-political.



See? Ahilarious.



I'm not often bothered by it. I'd never publicly whine about it. I may have no ability at giving "teh" humor, but I can still LOL and :-) with the best of them.



I'd only lament it if my balls were being burned off with… Continue

The worst thing about smileys...

There's no nose to punch, and no balls to kick. They just sit there with their idiot grins, "beaming happiness into the aether"... Makes me sick.



I rarely, if ever, use smiley faces in my online text. Sure, they're a great way to denote sarcasm or attempted humor, but so is just being funny. Not that everyone will always agree on what is or isn't humorous. Take the first three sentences of this post.

Evangelicals are Biggest Backers of Torture (Surprised??)

A Pew Survey found that 54% of Americans who attend church at least once a week support the torture of so-called enemy combatants “often” or “sometimes”. That number drops 12% for people who rarely or never attend services. But it was the evangelical Protestants, (you know, the literalists, the creationists, the kings of intolerance) who ran away with it. More

How about forming a Church of Atheism?

A half-serious question. Why not take advantage of the tax shelter and collect some of that "faith-based" money? Perhaps it could be diverted to some better causes. I don't know all the details of this, but would there be an advantage over simply creating a non-profit charity group? Hostile religious types like to accuse atheism of being a religion itself all the time. (of course, the fact that they consider this an insult is obviously self-defeating)



I can see the dangers in it too,… Continue

Replace Religion?

It's a common meme: If you are an Atheist, and you support science, you are frequently accused of trying to replace religion with science. A recent example is here: What's wrong with science as religion? The zen answer to that question, of course, is mu. What exactly is wrong with the question? Few if any Atheists have actually advocated such a thing. What… Continue
