First blog. I just need to vent for a minute.

I always find myself at a loss for words when I see some people's statuses on facebook or twitter that says, "I am amazed/angered/upset at the stupidity of some people!" or something along those lines.

It's not that their being angry at the stupidity of some people is particularly hard to believe. I find myself feeling this way often. It's just that these people are, almost always, the most fundamental (read: crazy) religious people I know. In fact, the aforementioned status update about being angry at the stupidity of people is the first status in months that hasn't invoked the name of god, praised jesus, gushed about how 'blessed' they are, and on and on until I've wanted to puke.

So yes, I find myself at a loss for words when the very people who believe in a made-up, mythical, magical, omnipotent, omniscient being who can hear thoughts, read minds, bless some, curse others, bring sunshine, cause hurricanes, the very people who deny 15 million years of hard scientific evidence for evolution are angry at other people's stupidity?

Aww, thanks Bonnie! I wasn't sure if this was insightful enough to be a blog post. I really just wanted to vent!

Howard - I get those post things all the time from my friends. Psychics AND astrological crap. Can't stand it. I've blocked all of those things from even being visible to my page anymore.

Hear, hear! ( "hear, all ye good people, hear what this brilliant and eloquent speaker has to say!" )

A friend of mine (not generally stupid) posted his 'psychic reading for the day' on FB. Granted, this is a 'just for fun' app. But he posts them daily. One said: It is time for you to offer your wisdom and common sense advice to one who needs it. So I finally had to comment - Dude, does your wisdom and common sense come from an ask-a-psychic app? He lol'd. But he still posts them.
