"He's Not With God, He's Fucking Dead"

I hope someone will say this on my funeral, cause I already foresee the fucking priest and other assholes claiming the dead is with God, same as they did with one of my close friends when we were 16 and pretty much any other person that I know that has passed away. The asshole priest even used the word "saint" and he had said to him in confession that he wanted to become a priest himself. Nothing further from the truth, as we have come to expect from Liars for Jesus. This kind of crap still angers me after all these years.

So I was cheering when I caught this on Maher's show on Friday. Action starts at around 5:30.

Coffee Cup

If you’re a hog in East Moline you’d be well advised to make a run for it! Pork processing there is big business. Actually, if you find your porcine self in East Moline, it’s too late. The trail from holding pen to shrink-wrapped bacon is a narrow one, well bounded by fences, a trail from which there is no escape if you’re a hog.

This week a man called Martin Gardner died, aged 95. His popular maths column in Scientific American (and 50 books on the subject) spanned the decades, but in 1952 he published a book about pseudoscience, quacks, and credulous journalists. How much do you think has changed over 60 years?

As the Hay festival kicks off, with world-class authors being interviewed on stage all week, we invited writers to follow the example of Nadine Gordimer – one of the star billings this year – and ask themselves questions journalists never ask . . .

The North Dakota DMV did relent and reverse itself, granting his request for the license plate originally denied. Still, that doesn't exactly settle the problem, there is still the question of church and state separation.

Jeff Schweitzer: The Fallacy of the God Gene

Jeff Schweitzer: The Fallacy of the God Gene:

“Two major newspapers did what all mainstream media do best: Get the story wrong. The New York Times published "The Evolution of the God Gene" by Nicholas Wade in which we are told that, "religion has the hallmarks of an evolved behavior, meaning it exists because it was favored by natural selection." We are further informed that religion is "universal because it was wired into our neural circuitry before the ancestral human population dispersed from its African homeland."

As a neurobiologist specializing in evolutionary biology these twin assertions about natural selection and the brain caught my attention. Both claims are wrong. But they are made so frequently as to have become conventional wisdom, like the canard that we only use 10 percent of our brains. Such folklore is a powerful force so these claims largely go unchallenged no matter how false.”
