  • Young Muslims begin dangerous fight for the right to abandon faith - Times Online
    A group of young Muslim apostates launches a campaign today, the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America, to make it easier to renounce Islam.

    The provocative move reflects a growing rift between traditionalists and a younger generation raised on a diet of Dutch tolerance.

    The Committee for Ex-Muslims promises to campaign for freedom of religion but has already upset the Islamic and political Establishments for stirring tensions among the million-strong Muslim community in the Netherlands.
  • Salt Lake Tribune - Rebecca Walsh: For Leavitt, it's business before babies (tip to Nate)
  • Comment is free: Ghettoes of superstition
    So the schools secretary, Ed Balls, and faith group leaders have formed a partnership endorsing faith schools as a force to improve social cohesion in England. This gasp-inducing statement is on a par with "let us build and run more nuclear power stations Chernobyl fashion - oh, and let's put them in city centres". In the face of the failure of multiculturalism, with the awful example of faith-divided schooling in Northern Ireland over decades, with news of Deobandi control of half of British mosques where hostility to the host community is preached, the government is choosing to continue to fly in the face of all reason and experience, and to design and pay for - with our tax money - greater future divisiveness and trouble. It is staggering.
  • The Frontal Cortex : McGinn Does Wittgenstein
    Is it bad if your favorite philosophy comes in aphorism form? This is why I've always enjoyed Wittgenstein: his writing has the density of plutonium, since it's just pre-digested quotes. I can read it without having to remember what anomalous monism is. Now Colin McGinn, who's one of my favorite philosophers of mind, has entered the blogosphere. One of his first posts is a list of 79 meditations on laws, causality and the nature of reality.
  • ScienceDaily: New CPR Promises Better Results By Compressing Abdomen, Not Chest
    A biomedical engineer at Purdue University has developed a new method to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation that promises to be more effective than standard CPR because it increases nourishing blood flow through the heart by 25 percent over the current method.
  • NEW BOOK “THE DAILY SHOWAND PHILOSOPHY MOMENTS OF ZEN IN THE ART OF FAKE NEWS"
    In a new book to be published by Wiley-Blackwell, The Daily Show and Philosophy (The Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series) editor and contributor Jason Holt has assembled an impressive team of seventeen fellow philosophers who, in 19 chapters, take a good look at the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning “fake news” program, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”.
  • Whose Human Rights Matter?
    It's rare that a media outlet's news standards can be tested so directly. The human rights group released separate reports on violations by both Hezbollah and Israel, charging each side with indiscriminate attacks on civilians. When the first report was released, the Times placed an 800-word story (8/31/07) under the headline "Rights Group Accuses Hezbollah of Indiscriminate Attacks on Civilians in Israel War," and accompanied by a photo of Israeli civilians at risk from Hezbollah rockets.

    But when Human Rights Watch's focus turned to Israeli actions, the paper's interest declined considerably; it ran a brief Associated Press report (9/7/07), sans photo, totaling 139 words. The headline: "Israel Criticized Over Lebanon Deaths."

Griffin's 'offensive' Emmy speech to be censored

link

In her speech, Griffin said that "a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus."

She went on to hold up her Emmy, make an off-color remark about Christ and proclaim, "This award is my god now!" (tip to John)


What off color remark?
"Can you believe this shit? I guess hell froze over. ... a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award.

"I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. So, all I can say is, 'suck it, Jesus.' This award is my god now."

Pardon Me

A Bill Moyers Essay on Scooter Libby and the call for a Presidential pardon. It airs this evening on PBS

We have yet another remarkable revelation of the mindset of Washington's ruling clique of neoconservative elites-the people who took us to war from the safety of their Beltway bunkers. Even as Iraq grows bloodier by the day, their passion of the week is to keep one of their own from going to jail.

It is well known that I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby-once Vice President Cheney's most trusted adviser-has been sentenced to 30 months in jail for perjury. Lying. Not a white lie, mind you. A killer lie. Scooter Libby deliberately poured poison into the drinking water of democracy by lying to federal investigators, for the purpose of obstructing justice.

Attempting to trash critics of the war, Libby and his pals in high places-including his boss Dick Cheney-outed a covert CIA agent. Libby then lied to cover their tracks. To throw investigators off the trail, he kicked sand in the eyes of truth. "Libby lied about nearly everything that mattered," wrote the chief prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. The jury agreed and found him guilty on four felony counts. Judge Reggie B. Walton-a no-nonsense, lock-em-up-and-throw-away-the-key type, appointed to the bench by none other than George W. Bush-called the evidence "overwhelming" and threw the book at Libby. You would have thought their man had been ordered to Guantanamo, so intense was the reaction from his cheerleaders. They flooded the judge's chambers with letters of support for their comrade and took to the airwaves in a campaign to "free Scooter."

Keith Olbermann - Special Comment

Keith Olbermann tell's exposes Rudy Giuliani for what he is a scum-sucking opportunist. Interestingly John McCain took very direct shot at Rudy today. Can you believe it. The New York fire and police departments are still using the same radios they used on 9-11. The ones that didn't allow them to talk to each other.

Complaints Accepted Here

If you'd like to complain about my closing of comments on the Brain Rot post, this is the place. Complaints left on other threads were deleted because they were off topic and interfered with those conversations.

This is not a place to continue the 9/11 discussion but only my decision to close comments on the post. Any comments included will be deleted.

Brain Rot

Dyer: Film gives life to brain-rotting 9/11 conspiracy theories
The 9/11 conspiracy theory is back, in a much more virulent form, and normally sane people are being taken in by it: I am getting half a dozen earnest e-mails every day telling me I must see a film called "Loose Change." It has been around in various versions for almost two years, but it now seems to be gathering converts faster than ever.

Well, I have seen it, and I concede that it is a much slicker, more professional product than other 9/11 conspiracy films, and therefore more seductive. But the argument is pure paranoid fantasy and it is rotting people's brains.
update: I've deleted the comments and I'm not going to accept comments on this post. The brain-rotted hordes just use it as a place to link to their favorite conspiracy video. I'll let them indulge their fantasies on their own sites.
