Mel Gibson: "What are you looking at, Sugar Tits?"

What the Fuck are YOU looking at?

Comedy gold, from Monsters and Critics

Yesterday, it was reported that actor Mel Gibson was arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in Malibu, California and booked at the Lost Hills sheriffs station in the adjacent city of Calabasas early at 2:36 AM for suspicion of DUI.

Harvey Levin of the website TMZ went on local Los Angeles news affiliates last night detailing the extent of Mel’s erratic behavior with the arresting officers, including deputy James Mee of the Lost Hills Sheriffs Station.

TMZ has the hand-written report that has been kept from the media on their website, four pages of the original report prepared by the arresting officer in the case.

Deputy James Mee recorded the incidents as they occurred. In the report, Gibson became agitated after he was stopped on Pacific Coast Highway and told he was to be detained for drunk driving Friday morning in Malibu.

Gibson began swearing uncontrollably. Gibson repeatedly said, "My life is f****d."
Mee worried that Gibson might become violent, told the actor that he was supposed to cuff him but would not, as long as Gibson cooperated. As the two stood next to the hood of the patrol car, the deputy asked Gibson to get inside.

Deputy Mee then walked over to the passenger door and opened it. The report says Gibson then said, "I'm not going to get in your car," and bolted to his car. The deputy subdued Gibson, cuffed him and put him inside the patrol car.

Once inside the car Gibson began banging himself against the seat. The report says Gibson told the deputy, "You mother f****r. I'm going to f*** you." The report also says "Gibson almost continually [sic] threatened me saying he 'owns Malibu' and will spend all of his money to 'get even' with me."

The report says Gibson then launched into a barrage of anti-Semitic statements: "F*****g Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." Gibson then asked the deputy, "Are you a Jew?"

TMZ’s source inside the sheriff station reported that the deputy called ahead for a sergeant to meet them when they arrived at the station. When they arrived, a sergeant began videotaping Gibson, who noticed the camera and then said, "What the f*** do you think you're doing?"

Allegedly, another law enforcement source says Gibson then noticed another female sergeant and yelled, "What do you think you're looking at, sugar tits?"

Gibson was put in a cell with handcuffs on. He said he needed to urinate, TMZ sheriff station sources say Deputy Mee thought Gibson was going to urinate on the floor of the booking cell and asked someone to take Gibson to the bathroom.

Deputy Mee wrote an eight-page report detailing Gibson's rampage and comments. Sources say the sergeant on duty felt it was too "inflammatory." A lieutenant and captain then got involved and calls were made to Sheriff's headquarters. Sources say Mee was told Gibson's comments would incite a lot of "Jewish hatred," that the situation in Israel was "way too inflammatory."

It was mentioned several times that Gibson, who wrote, directed, and produced 2004's "The Passion of the Christ," had incited "anti-Jewish sentiment" and "For a drunk driving arrest, is this really worth all that?"

Levin’s was told “Deputy Mee was then ordered to write another report, leaving out the incendiary comments and conduct. Sources say Deputy Mee was told the sanitized report would eventually end up in the media and that he could write a supplemental report that contained the redacted information -- a report that would be locked in the watch commander's safe.”

Gibson's representative Alan Nierob went on record with TMZ: "We are unaware of any of the information you mentioned in your email pertaining to a police report."

Oh, but that's not all. You see, Mel Gibson has been touched by the Divine Hand of God. Look at this comment (more to be found on the link):
mel, i feel for you. the pressures of being human and touched by such divine things that we can never fully understand is hard, difficult and by our human nature delivers us that depression. you did nothing wrong- you were just being a human and all humans make mistakes for reasons only known to God first and then ourselves. you are only accountable to God, your family and yourself-
these are the important things. God bless!

Wow! Mel is so divine, he can "do nothing wrong" and "make mistakes" at the same time! Sounds absolutely biblical! Of course, only God knows why Mel thinks that Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world, when clearly, Mel Gibson Himself is.

Crap of the Day: THEY are putting "Cancer" in your WATER!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Is your drinking water trying to kill you?

Some people think so. And still more think: Why take a chance?

"Have you ever heard of a thing called fluoridation? -- fluoridation of water? . . . Do you realize that fluoridation is the most monstrously conceived and dangerous Communist plot we have ever had to face? . . . Do you realize that in addition to fluoridating water -- why, there are studies under way to fluoridate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar, milk, ice cream? Ice cream, Mandrake! -- children's ice cream!

"Do you know when fluoridation first began? . . . Nineteen hundred and forty-six. 1946, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh?

"It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual -- certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works."

-- Gen. Jack D. Ripper, Dr. Strangelove

The Radical Libertarian: It's about your freedom, stupid

The Radical Libertarian: It's about your freedom, stupid
Suppose that in Ancapistan (the name always given to a hypothetical market anarchic territory), most of the population voluntarily gives half of their income to a big organization of bureaucrats, who then redistributes that money according to whatever criteria the socialist desires. Furthermore, people only trade with others who follow a certain code of morality that the socialist agrees upon. In short, an ideal situation - a whole society that behaves, purely voluntarily, like he desires.

I guarantee you that if you ask socialists and communists what they would think about such a scenario, 99% of them will answer that they don't like it. Why? Because voluntary action is not an expression of "the will of the people", it's vile, disgusting "capitalism" - even if it goes exactly as they desire.

Jerry Springer: "Jesus, grow up and put some clothes on."

How is Jerry Springer, The Opera, Blasphemous? Christian Voice gives us the scoop!
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
In Act 2, the character of Jerry Springer descends into hell, where the weirdos from Act 1 now become Biblical characters and take part in another Jerry Springer show. There is a shouting (singing) match between Jesus and Satan, Jesus says He is 'a little bit gay' and Mary rants at Jesus for abandoning her by dying on the cross. The Saviour of the world is told in his duet with Satan to "F*** off", while He sings "Talk to the stigmata". So even His wounds are ridiculed. God the Father emerges as an old fool who needs therapy, and Jerry Springer becomes an Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting alternative saviour. Which makes David Soul's character the Antichrist, of course.What I could not fail to notice that every character gets a change of clothes from Act 1 to Act 2, so as to distance themselves in part from whom they played before, except Jerry Springer and, you'll never guess, Jesus. Jesus, King of kings and Lord of lords, God incarnate who lived a perfect life and suffered on the cross for the sins of the world, is the perv in a nappy. People connected with the show are saying it was a nappy in Act 1, now it's a loincloth. It still looks like a nappy to me and the guy who plays Jesus hardly resembles Tarzan. In any case, finally Springer tells my Saviour, "Jesus, grow up and put some clothes on". With blasphemies and expletives, of course. It's an 'adult' show.God Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, is portrayed as an inadequate who is called upon to answer Satan's grievances. He needs a shoulder to cry on and it's Jerry Springer's. "Jerry eleison" means "Jerry have mercy" and is a mockery of "Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison" (Lord, Christ have mercy). Any of this would make the show blasphemous and offensive to God and to Christians. And by the way, to all of those liberal wiseacres who have said there is a deeply 'moral message' in 'Springer', get real. Yes, trash-TV is pretty crass, but this show hardly offers some wonderful, uplifting alternative. Jerry's "Yin, Yang, no wrong, no right" is not a moral, let alone a Christian message. It's amoral. Jesus Christ said "Keep the Commandments" and first of all, "Love the Lord thy God". That's where morality starts.

Be sure and check out the other site, Anti-Christian Voice!
Who can doubt that there is something deeply wrong in the United Kingdom today? Everyone seems to be looking out for themselves, nobody seems to care, nobody appears to have any honour or respect - from the top to the bottom. Half a generation of children are growing up without Pie, the government is encouraging children to forego Pie, Pie is withheld in the courts and the poor are robbed of their Pie by the national lottery. The Great Pie in the Sky itself is under attack from the media. Last but not least, we kill our own children. How did it come to this?

Is Charlotte Church One of Us? How Much do we Love Her?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Oh, so very much. So very, very much.

From Media Watch

Church brands pope a Nazi

Charlotte Church, that is. The young Welsh diva has already upset a few people even before her Channel 4 chat show has aired. Insulting guests, dressing up as a nun and swallowing ecstasy pills like communion wafers, and calling the incumbent leader of the Roman Catholic church a Nazi - all in the pilot for the show.

This “Crazy Chick” could be one to watch.

God-muncher publishing co bans Church

We have already reported on Charlotte Church’s controversial new Channel 4 chat show. In the pilot, she called the current pope a Nazi, dressed up as a nun, and pretended to get high on Jesus-biscuits with smiley faces drawn on them.

According to the Daily Mail, the backlash has begun, with Ignatius Press (”the Catholic Amazon”) removing all of her work from its catalogue.

The Mail also has more on her alleged antics during the show, which included smashing open a statue of the Virgin Mary to reveal a can of cider inside, saying she worshipped St Fortified Wine, and sticking chewing gum on a statue of the child Jesus.

A spokesman for Ignatius said

It is with regret that we do this. Miss Church possesses a great gift from God, and in the past she has used her talents to offer praise and glory to our Lord.

But we cannot stand by a young woman who uses her stature in the media to mock the Eucharist, slander the Holy Father, and denigrate the vows of religious women.

Therefore, our catalogues and website will immediately withdraw all compact discs, cassette tapes, DVDs and VHS tapes that feature Miss Church. Please join us in praying for this troubled young woman.

But remember: always pick out any stray pieces of God-flesh from between your teeth before praying.

Actually, he didn’t say that last bit.
Catholic Boycott

“Therefore, our catalogues and website will immediately withdraw all compact discs, cassette tapes, DVDs and VHS tapes that feature Miss Church. Please join us in praying for this troubled young woman,” they added.

I just might be on Hovind's side--this time.

Hovind Tribe

Creationist's fight with Uncle Sam may evolve into painful defeat

We learn some things early in life.

One is to pick our fights and beware of big enemies who can squash us flat.

But Kent "Dr. Dino" Hovind apparently feels the fight is worth the risk.

He's squaring off against Uncle Sam on charges of tax fraud. Hovind has lost before -- with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and with Escambia County's right to require building permits for his Dinosaur Adventure Land, a park just east of Car City.

But in this fight he has more to lose -- his personal freedom.

Still, the founder of "creation science evangelism" seems bent on doing it his way when he and his wife are scheduled to go on trial Sept. 5.

(To learn more about "creation science," visit, where for $2 you can obtain a CD-ROM explaining how to start your very own "creation ministry" and dispute scientists who believe in evolution.)

Hovind is either a brilliant man or a farce, depending on which e-mailers you read in the blogosphere, where people fiercely debate the claims of evolution and creationism.

But his newest fight is with something more immediate -- the notion that we all pay our fair share of taxes to the good old U.S. of A., which guarantees people the right to believe in evolution or in creationism as they choose. (oh, give me a fucking break--alleee)

Hovind appeared polite but determined to fight the case when he was arraigned Monday in U.S. District Court.

Neither he nor his wife and co-defendant, Jo, wanted to enter a traditional plea of guilty or not guilty.

The Hovinds question the court's right to try them. They consider themselves missionaries exempt from taxes to a government that, incidentally, is providing them with attorneys.

But Magistrate Miles Davis wanted them to enter pleas just as any other citizen would.

"If they don't wish to enter a plea, I'll enter one for them," Davis said.

When asked by the prosecutor to list his residence, Kent Hovind said he lives in "the church of Jesus Christ ... located all over the world."

Asked if he wrote and spoke English, this man who claims a doctorate said, "To some degree."

In turn, Hovind, 53, had his own questions about the indictment, but Davis cut him off, saying, "The government adequately explained" the allegations.

The defendant understands the charges "whether you want to admit it or not," he told Kent Hovind.

Then, Hovind offered another wrinkle.

"I would like to plead subornation of false muster," he said, announcing a defense I haven't heard in 30 years of hanging around courtrooms.

The precedent is not good. A man in the state of Washington tried a similar defense a few years ago, claiming he was a "citizen of heaven" and not subject to state laws. But a court there ruled that when in Washington, do as Washington law requires, and found him guilty.

When it was Jo Hovind's turn, she stood with her husband's hand on her shoulder and reiterated the gist of his statements.

She said she was unsure because "this is a whole new world to me."

But if she and her husband stay on this path, they could find that the new world will come with bars on its windows.

'Magic Mushroom' Drug Study Probes Science, Spirituality

TUESDAY, July 11 (HealthDay News) -- Volunteers who tried the hallucinogenic ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms during a controlled study funded by the U.S. government had "mystical" experiences, and many of them still felt unusually happy months later.

The aims of the Johns Hopkins researchers were simple: to explore the neurological mechanisms and effects of the compound, as well as its potential as a therapeutic agent.

Although psilocybin -- the hallucinogenic agent in the Psilocybe family of mushrooms -- first gained notoriety more than 40 years ago, it has rarely been studied because of the controversy surrounding its use.

This latest finding, which sprang from a rigorously designed trial, moves the hallucinogen's effect closer to the hazy border separating hard science and religious mysticism.

"More than 60 percent of the volunteers reported effects of their psilocybin session that met the criteria for a 'full mystical experience' as measured by well-established psychological scales," said lead researcher Roland Griffiths, a professor in the departments of neuroscience, psychiatry and behavioral biology at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

What's more, most of the 36 adult participants -- none of whom had taken psilocybin before -- counted their experience while under the influence of the drug as "among the most meaningful and spiritually significant experiences of their lives," Griffiths said. Most said they became better, kinder, happier people in the weeks after the psilocybin session -- a fact corroborated by family and friends.

The researchers also noted no permanent brain damage or negative long-term effects stemming from use of psilocybin.

But the study, published in the July 11 online edition of Psychopharmacology, did not neglect the hallucinogen's "dark side."

Even though the candidates for the landmark study were carefully screened to reduce their vulnerability and closely monitored during the trial, "We still had 30 percent of them reporting periods of very significant fear or anxiety which could easily escalate into panic and dangerous behavior if this were given in any other kind of circumstances," Griffiths said.

"We simply don't know what causes a 'bad trip,' " he added, "and we can't forecast who'll have a difficult time and who won't."

Still, many experts hailed the research, which was funded by the U.S. National Institute of Drug Abuse and the Council on Spiritual Practices, as long overdue.

No less than Dr. Herbert Kleber -- former deputy director of the White House's Office of National Drug Control Policy under former President George H.W. Bush -- said these types of studies "could shed light on various kinds of brain activity and lead to therapeutic uses for these categories of drugs." He authored a commentary on the Hopkins study.

"Over time, with appropriate research, maybe we can figure out ways to decrease [illicit drugs'] bad effects," while retaining those effects beneficial to medical science, Kleber said.

Scientific research into the effects of illegal, Schedule 1 drugs such as psilocybin are allowed by federal law. But the stigma surrounding their use has kept this type of research to a minimum. The taboo surrounding drugs such as psilocybin "has some wisdom to it," Griffiths said, but "it's unfortunate that as a culture we so demonized these drugs that we stopped doing research on them."

Psilocybin appears to work primarily on the brain's serotonin receptors to alter states of consciousness. In their study, the Baltimore team sought to determine the exact nature of psilocybin's effects on humans, under strictly controlled conditions.

To do so, they sought volunteers with no prior history of drug abuse or mental illness who also had a strong interest in spirituality, since the drug was reputed to trigger mystical states.

The study included 36 college-educated participants averaging 46 years of age. It was also randomized and double-blinded, meaning that half of the participants received psilocybin, while the other half received a non-hallucinogenic stimulant, methylphenidate (Ritalin), but neither researchers nor the participants knew who got which drug in any given session. Each volunteer was brought in for two or three sessions in a "crossover" design that guaranteed that each participant used psilocybin at least once.

During each eight-hour encounter, participants were carefully watched over in the lab by two trained monitors. The volunteers were instructed by the researchers to "close their eyes and direct their attention inward."

According to the Baltimore team, nearly two-thirds of the volunteers said they achieved a "mystical experience" with "substantial personal meaning." One-third rated the psilocybin experience as "the single most spiritually significant experience of his or her life," and another 38 percent placed the experience among their "top five" most spiritually significant moments.

Most also said they became better, gentler people in the following two months. "We don't think that's delusional, because we also interviewed family members and friends by telephone, and they confirmed these kinds of claims," Griffiths said.

So, is this "God in a pill"? Griffiths said answering questions of religion or spirituality far exceeds the scope of studies like these.

"We know that there were brain changes that corresponded to a primary mystical experience," he said. "But that finding -- as precise as it may get -- will in no way inform us about the metaphysical question of the existence of a higher power."

He likened scientific attempts to seek God in the human brain to experiments where scientists watch the neurological activity of people eating ice cream.

"You could define exactly what brain areas lit up and how they interplay, but that shouldn't be used as an argument that chocolate ice cream does or doesn't exist," Griffiths said.

Another expert said the study should give insights into human consciousness.

"We may gain a better understanding of how we biologically react to a spiritual state," said Dr. John Halpern, associate director for substance abuse research at McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School.

Halpern, who's conducted his own research on the sacramental use of the hallucinogenic drug peyote by Native Americans, said he's encouraged that the Hopkins trial was organized in the first place. "This study, by some of the top-tier people in the country, shows that it's possible for us to re-look at these substances and evaluate them safely in a research setting," he said.

For his part, former deputy drug czar Kleber stressed that agents such as psilocybin "carry a high likelihood of misuse as well as good use."

Griffiths agreed the study should not been seen as encouragement for casual experimentation.

"I think it would be awful if this research prompted people to use the drug under recreational conditions," he said, "because we really don't know that there aren't personality types or conditions under which you could take things like that and develop persisting harm."

Are they willing to say the same thing about religion? After all, if it has the same kind of effect...

They had to throw that last part in. I'd be surprised if a government study like this isn't eventually supressed or artificially discredited because of the War on Drugs. Just wait for it.

Ricky Gervais on Genesis--Video

Via Debunking Christianity

So, God "made 'em big so I could see 'em from heaven!" What a fucking pedophile! Never thought about it that way! "Come on, take your clothes off!"

Just had a thought, via Daylight Atheism:

"And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food."
—Genesis 1:29 (RSV)

Maybe if they had eaten every plant, they wouldn't have been so embarrassed to be naked? I mean, they might have been "made aware" by this tree, KNowledge of Good and Evil and all that, but where the hell does nakedness enter into it? What's so bad about that? God had been checkin' out their naughty bits all along, enjoying the view, and all of a sudden, they find out that all along this has been evil? As I said above, this makes God a complete pervert, and complicit in their sin. After all, it had to have been a sin before the eating of the fruit, since it was not The Tree of Making Things Sinful that Weren't Sinful Before.

And what a stupid, idiotic thing to make for their second "sin:" being naked. Yes, yes, metaphoriacs, I know what your little beautiful flow'ry metaphor is about being naked and ashamed, so go impress someone else with your sage knowledge. I'm trying to make a point, not an excuse for biblical anti-morality. What I'm saying is that God goes right in with the sexual shame, and we're all supposed to pretend he wasn't a part of it. God is the first power-imbalance sexual abuser. It's all falling into place. Maybe if God had been just a little bit decent, he could have given them a bit of one of the "every plant on earth," and they wouldn't have had to feel so bad.

...and I know you believe this crap: "Affluenza"

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I just skimmed through the dopiest, most hateful, demonizing book: Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic, based on a PBS documentary by John De Graaf, David Wayn, and Thomas H. Naylor.

It claims that "the Market Values" are killing "the American Family" and the earth, and all that crapola. It laments that we spend more time shopping than going to church. Alas, heaven forfend that we pursue our own, evil selfish values when we could be sitting in front of a scam artist, promising us riches after death--or, of course, watching McPBS (paid for by that restaurant you made every indication of despising, but didn't mention, PBS). It allies itself with and quotes fundamentalist ministers and downright lies in order to prove just how evil, ugly, and shallow we all are for buying stuff at discount prices.

The ideology at Focus on the Family is decidedly free-market capitalist , but not without reservations

(like--how do you have a free market under a theocracy?--alleee)
like those expressed by Stanton. "The market in a very real sense is hostile to the family," he contends.

(you mean the power imbalance of the partiarchy, or the hostility towards a God who demands the first of everything for himself?)
"It needs to expand itself."

(with a little help from force, right? Meaning an enslaved market, not a free one.)
It needs to bring in new consumers. And quite tragically, it brings in new consumers at almost any price.

(except by gunpoint, like the state, and threat of eternal hell, like your church.)
Do we go after a sale even pitting a child against a parent?

(sound familiar?)
We would contend that is too far.

(public schools, drug war, religion, etc.)

If you wanna read this book, fine. I hope you have a good laugh. I always enjoy a good book with no sense of morality. I have a little weird idea: if you don't like consumerism, don't "over-consume." Just stop whining and complaining about everyone else.

The Mean, Old, Christian-Persecuting Atheist at Work

Cherry Sorting

As you may know, I've been working in fruit for the last few weeks, as I spend my money-accumulating "vacation" away from the Beloved back in Quebec.

Now, many religious people think that I must be this really mean person, who is inexplicably obsessed with their god, and I can't ever let the subject drop. All us atheists are just bitter, and really hard to get along with: especially someone like me, who according to one of these comments, has no basis for my desire to spread non-belief at all. "None of it means anything."

Here's the reality.

I work mostly on assembly lines, so there is opportunity for discussion. I already know the church that two of my co-workers go to--Southern Baptist, in town. Another one is a Jehovah's Witness. Some are Catholic. I know that Scientology is ridiculous, because we already have a bible: why make up new rules? I know that my supervisor is

"The World's Biggest Homophobe: They Should All Be Forced Back In The Closet. "

What do they know about me? Well, I said to one of them: "I'm sort of a skeptic: I don't believe in anything."

Another one asked me what religion I was. She asked me if I was a Mormon. I said, "I'm nothing."

She laughed; end of discussion.

So there you go. I feel like I should hide a pretty big aspect of who I am in order to keep harmony at work while I slog through a difficult and physically painful job (it's actually hard to type this because of the apple packing I did today--swollen thumbs and blistered index fingers). Do I want to say "Oh, I'm a professional atheist?" Sure. But I know that my "fringe" "beliefs" may be disturbing to some ears. Poor babies. Do they think that maybe their religious and political beliefs might be disturbing to my ears? Of course, it doesn't matter. Why should they care?

Of course, I can't let the homophobic comments go. It would be immoral to stand aside and let that poison my world. I looked at my supervisor after he talked about what should be done with gays, I held up my "claws" at him and said "BOO!"

Maybe I didn't make a good lesbian. I was too busy flirting with the young men that day.

PS: I urge you; if you're ever tempted to go for easy money by taking a quick job at a fruit warehouse, don't. Save your wrists, fingers, and back. Not worth the minimum wage.

Saturday Question: Satan

What did Satan ever do that would give him such a bad reputation? Why should anyone be afraid of him (or them)? What exactly did Satan do that makes him deserving of the lake of fire, and the title of Pure Evil?

Canonical references requested.

Purported actions by Babylonian gods do not apply. Even if they did, I need to see some moral reasoning behind his (the ancient god in question's) damnation, and evil reputation.

Worship Gud!

"Jesus wants you to eat his body, and drink his blood. Yuck!"

An Atheist Harrassed

If You're Just Going to Make Up Your Own Religion...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

...why get bogged down with the mouldering doctrines of Christianity and Judaism? Why not come up with something....moral, at least?

I'm constantly amazed at how some people tell me they worship Jesus, but disregard what scripture actually says, in favour of a version of Christianity that makes more "sense" to them. If hell is just too unbelievably awful, take away Jehovah's responsibility for it. Take away Jehovah's biblical omnipotence in order to make him just another guy who probably, maybe loves you. Remove Jesuses words about hellfire and wailing and parasites and biblical wars and racism, and you have a communist, feminist peace activist. Pretend the writers of the bible had scientific knowledge. Make some parts of the bible into metaphors, while the stuff you like, the Jesus you made up, heaven, and something about helping the poor (which you heard was Christian, but never read in scripture).

Where does this religion come from? Where in the world does one get his information about Jesus and Christianity outside of scripture?

If you're going to take that "holy" bible, run it through the wash, pasteurize and process it, "logisize" it, and what do you have? It's not Christianity, that's for damned sure.

So if you're going to have a religion that "makes sense," what the hell are you doing bothering those poor, dead characters? What can you hope to get out of it, if it's not good enough for you the way it is? Make up your own God-Damned God! Make up your own saviour! Why do you want to gove lip-service to a slave-owning, racist, amoral, blood-sacrifice religion, obsessed with sex positions, men's genitals, menstruation, family curses, and barbaric capital punishment? You can pretend it isn't there, but you end up worshipping your own personal fantasy either way.

Look at your values, evaluate them for their rationality, live simply, seek happiness, take care of you and your loved ones, and maybe you don't have to worry about all these ghosts and death anymore. Maybe you'll find something better.

An Atheist Goes to Heaven

"They let you in here?"

Is this REALLY an ANTI-Mormon cartoon, or a Commercial?

So, what's more cuckoo: "countless gods," or one god that is one guy, three guys, and everyone at the same time?

Hello, Mr. Pot, meet Mr. Kettle.!

Pot: Why, Mr. Kettle, you're certainly black.

Regardless, I adore this cartoon. Utterly entertaining. One thing: WHAT the HOLY HELL do these people have against the colour RED? Damn. Didn't GOD create the fucking colour? Didn't GOD create COLOUR? Jeez. What's a girl gotta do to have her private parts NOT associated with INFINITE EVIL?

Andy Doesn't Get It. Poor Andy.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
If you didn't already know, I copy all of this blog onto My Space, so I can expose myself to the younguns, and more. Such an exhibitionist. Well, my post A Simple Question has received some good attention, and some silly attention. I think you might be interested in seeing what some peeps had to say.

The post is abbreviated, but if you want to see what everyone had to say, check out the blog.
My question is this- Why are atheists ( I'd call you agnostic but whatever, thats a dead horse) so passionite about spreading the word that God doesn't exist? I don't understand the motive. Even just reading that I find the Bible hard to swallow, you get a small feeling of happiness deep down for me, like theres "hope" for me. Why? Is it because of the negitivity christianity has had in the world over the ages? Do you find people who believe in what you don't incredibly annoying? You try and argue compassion for others who are being tricked and decieved, but you have no basis or reason for that compassion and care. To me, you're no different than the christian holding a sign and shouting at women walking into an abortion clinic or telling a gay guy he's going to burn in hell. They have no right or should I say "obligation" to do that, no more than you do to be so passionite about the other side. The idiot christians do this out of lack of understanding of the new covenant, and rush to judgment, ( I'm not saying that they "have it all wrong" and in general christianity is and has been thru the years, a peacefull, caring, loving organization of people) but whats the motive for an atheist? Why are you so pissed off? You argue that we should all love our wives and husbands, kids and family. That we should be nice and care for people....Why? Whats the point? If I didn't believe in something more than humanity, and there was nothing at the end of this race, why run? Who cares? What does it matter? Just becuase humanity has set up these guidlines for good living and whats "right" or "wrong", why should I follow? Why should I submit to humanity if humanity is all there is? If there is no God, then there is no moral compas. If you try to say otherwise, you'd just be attempting to get me to swallow some half assed reasoning that makes you able to sleep at night, much like you would say I do. Morals, "feelings" do not exist in Science. Brain chemistry does, but to not link that with anything other than evolution is just as crazy sounding to me as a vigin birth. Its the old, chicken and the egg bit. You end with the egg, but it makes no sense.

I find atheists just as annoying, frustrating and pissed off as most christian people, especially here in QC, considering the history of "christianity" here. I won't pretend I know everything about God. I won't pretend I don't think alot of the things I read in the Bible aren't weird or horrible, but I believe that God has the final say, not me. I believe His plan is perfect. I think that statement right there is one of the things that get atheists pissed the most, coupled with the fact that you know there isn't a God, even though I claim there is and in fact His plan is better that mine. Yeah, alot of christians are blinded. As the atheist believes that God doesn't exist based on "knowledge" and no "feeling", alot of christians base their faith on a "feeling" and no knowledge. These are the ones that you get to make look stupid, which I'm sure is fun for you and everything, but for me I believe based on alot more than the "feeling". You will reply, "so tell me why you believe". Why do you care? To me, you're just as lost as I am, and need something more as much as I do. You just get to be lost in a funer way than christians, and don't have to exersise faith. Basicly you get to do what you want. If thats working for you, then I'm not going to create a website and a radio program telling people that its not. If it is, it is. Our problem as humans, is that we all want to be "right".

AndrewPosted by Andy on Monday, July 03, 2006 at 12:00 PM

Andy: what did your post have to do with my question? Did you think about it at all, or were you just feeling like you wanted to complain about atheists, and my blog was conventient for you?

Let me try and help you out here a little with your trouble with the concepts of morality and emotion. Somewhere along the way, you have been told that people who like science, and people who find reason important are cold, calculating, and don't care about how people feel. You have been misinformed. Some very creative and passionate people are and were atheists: artists, musicians, philosophers, dancers, and of course scientists. As a matter of fact, I am a musician and an artist myslef, and so is my whole family.

First, I will put to rest your problem with emotion. Emotion is not an imaginary, immaterial thing, and nobody here is trying to pretend it doesn't exist. We need emotions in order to survive and enjoy lid life. So here's a big, bad, old atheist who appreciates, and doesn't poo-poo emotions.

Second, you can't possibly be serious about what you're saying about morality! Andy, do you hear yourself? No point to morality? Seriously, dude, don't be stupid.

Here's the point: give me an earthly, non-religious reason that I shouldn't shoot you. Do you want to be shot? Why shouldn't I kill your family? Think about it for a moment. Can you think of at least one reason for me not to harm you? This is simple, Andy. I am not looking for a deep, philosophical answer. Think of a reason that, well, sounds dumb.

Figured it out?

If you can't, that's what religion does to people. They say stupid stuff like what you said. They (not me, not "atheists,") have had their moral autonomy stripped from them. This is what religion does. I'll try to explain.

What do you see when you look around you, or when you think about the things that matter to you? Do you love anyone? Do you have anything that you love to do, any passion in life? I do. I have many, many things that I love and value. Recruiters want you to forget that any of that exists. Then they "give" yo God. They tell you that God is everything, and all those things that matter are nothing, because they are icky, sinful, low, base, "material things." They tell you that the things that actually EXIST are meaningless, and that imaginary things, the godly, high and powerful "intangible" things "matter." What they're doing is thinking completely backwards.

Now that your thinking is completely opposite from reality, you look at someone like me, an atheist, someone who "doesn't have god." Well, when your thinking is trained up like yours is, naturally, you assume I have NOTHING that MEANS ANYTHING. We are, as many christians like to say, ALONE WITHOUT GOD. Interesting, because that's the exact tactic that abusive lovers use. "You're nothing without me." That's, well, immoral.

Morality, Andy, is very simple. Morality is NOT A LIST OF STUFF OTHER PEOPLE SHOULDN'T DO. Morality is the study of causality in human action. Sounds complicated, but it isn't.

Values are things that you want to attain and keep. Morality is the process of figuring out if those values are reasonable. Causality is the fact that when you do somethng, other stuff happens as a result of it. Do you see now, how religion has nothing to do with morality? Christainity is AMORAL. It says that you must not judge, you must obey. Morality is NOTHING, if not judgement. You have to figure out if your action will cause a good reaction. There is no figuring out in OBEY. Now, look at the ten commandments. Those are not always good values, or reasonable ones. No working on a Sunday? That's silly.

You see, Andy, you are the one who believes that the world is meaningless, not me. I'm sorry you are living this way. I don't. I know, and I am learning how the world is a big place for one person with one life, and there is so much wonder and loveliness and horror and ugliness in it. How sad that you would say its meaningless! And you don't understand why an atheist would ever be angry?

By the way, Andy, I am not afraid of being judged (whoops, Andy, you're judging) "Angry." Anger (an emotion) is not a taboo for me. Anger is an emotion that, when used well, is helpful. But be assured, I am not angry. You may have been told, incorrectly, that anger is something that is always accompanied by violence. Luckily, I am not part of a religion that has one of the many violent gods out there.

And this is why I spread the word. I want more people in my world who are morally autonomous, and have the tools at their disposal to make good decisions about the world, not people who find no value in it.

There is No Such Thing as a Monotheist


I got this great email today:

Dear Alleee and Francois,

listening to your shows and reading your articles gives me a lot of ideas about religion and inter-related topics. I came across another idea today about the absurd logic of religion which I think you may appreciate(although you may have written about similar topics in the past).

If I went up to a pastor for instance and told him that he was wrong about the existence of god, and that there were actually two gods, he would tell me I was wrong. I could then try to persuade him by telling him that the second god was a block of cheese. I would even show him the block of cheese, and let him feel it. Maybe I'd let him eat a piece so he knew it was real. He would most likely tell me that I was completely ridiculous or wrong, et cetera. He would then say that a block of cheese can not be a god.

"Well, why not?", i would ask." That is not enough evidence? After all my god is visible, yours isn't!"

The reason I find this analogy interesting is because it shows that god has less legitimacy than a block of cheese.

Ryan e

Indeed. This "god" isn't even American cheese. Living in Quebec, I can see many more reasons to worship cheese than something I can't eat, like "god." Even if you're a smartass and say "HEY! WAIT! What about Hosts! You can eat those, and those are God, after the man in the dress does therapeutic touch on it!"

OK, Smartass hypothetical person, eat this Quebec Sharp and then eat the Host--they sell them in the bulk candy aisle, they're called "Retaille d'Hosties." Now tell me which god is superior, Einstein! And don't tell me they're Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together, either, Mr. 'I don't know my first commandment!'"

That's tellin' em!

hell's handmaiden: Atheists are Bad, Bad

New article for The War on Relativism, coming from Hell's Handmaiden:

Atheists are Bad, Bad Parts I and Part II.

Religion does not do an outstanding job of keeping people in line. This is not just an ad hominem or a tu quoque. By faulting atheism for its purported lack of ability to control human foibles, religion is set up as a standard of comparison. It is placed on a pedestal. If it can be shown that that standard is less than it needs to be, then any criticism of atheism based upon it falls flat. In other words, if atheism can be criticized for not reining in bad behavior, then so can religion, so can appeals to God.

Yeah, OK, but how about "How to Get out of Prison Supernaturally?"

How to Pay Your Bills Supernaturally, by Robert Tilton

Yes, Tilton is back, and not being raped by other inmates, like he would be, if there were a god.

Solving the Mystery of the Miracle Money

There's the world's way of trying to pay off bills, and there's God's way of supernaturally paying off bills. The Holy Spirit will stir you through these words that you will know nothing is impossible unto you.

I believe by the time you finish reading this book, there is going to be a divine impartation of the Spirit, the presence, and the anointing of God into your life. You will be charged up and on fire because the words in this book are not my words; they are God's Words of Spirit and Life. Like lightning striking and setting you on fire, the Holy Spirit will so stir you through these words that you will know that nothing is impossible to you.

Ask me about my new program, "How to Steal Bandwidth from a Crook, Naturally!"
