Religion is like...

This came via an email making the forwarding rounds; I don't know the original source. Might not even be new.

The text:

Religion is like a penis.

It's fine to have one. 

It's fine to be proud of it. 

But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around. 

And PLEASE don't try to shove it down my children's throats. 

Well. That certainly is some rather direct imagery. But I sure can't argue with the sentiment! Readeth thou more

12 Jan 2011

The Intertubes as a whole have been laughing at Bill O'Reilly's naming of the tides as "proof" of a magic man in the sky. Responding to the claim by David Silverman, President of American Atheists, that all religions are a scam, O'Reilly tells us how he knows they're not:

The James Randi Educational Foundation site carried a lovely piece today by Richard Saunders, listing some delightful products tapping EUTS (Energies Unknown To Science!) to make your life a better one. From Quantum Pendants to Bionic Bands, these amulets of power will rebalance your biofeedback, clear your pathways of negative energy, and synchronize the resonance of your cells. Can you really afford even one more day without Proton Alignment Resonance Technology or the comforting stabilization of the Phild Process?

Oh. Not so eager to open your chakras and your wallet? Before you make a decision on the miracle of bio-energy field stabilization, you say you want to sleep on it? Perfect; I've got just the product for you to sleep on. Behold: the disease-repelling, sex-enhancing, Korean Thermo Clay Mat/Bed!

Rocket (Son of) Man!

18 Aug 2010

This has nothing to do with religion, either for or against. I just like this picture of Rocket Jesus lifting off, to symbolize the soaring Brazilian economy. (That's the 40 meter-tall Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, in case anyone should not recognize it.)

"This is my solid rocket booster stage which is for you. Launch this in remembrance of me."

J minus 10 and counting! Readeth thou more
