Here’s your Christmas present, but oh wait, you don’t believe in Jesus.

November 18, 2007

To all the lousy atheists who may come across this site by the way of the Pullman-is-an-atheist post, here’s a little Christmas present from me to you. (Or should I say, happy holiday present instead?)

Blogger John Scalzi visits the Creationist Museum in Kentucky and gives us a 101-picture set on the awesomeness of intelligent design.

Some gems include:

How did dinosaurs fit on Noah’s Ark?

An explaination of how Cain and his mother managed to screw each other without giving birth to deformed kids.

T-Rex was a veggiehead, yo.

It might take a while to go through all the 101 photos,but it’s worth every minute of it. Trust me.

(Thanks to Dave for the link.)

OH MY GOD! They Killed God! Those Bastards!

November 12, 2007

Well, that’s it then. We should all gather in the town square to burn the books as we dance naked around the flames. Information is dangerous! If people have information, then they might start to think, and to question and then HOLY SHIT PEOPLE! Are you even remotely aware of what would happen if everyone were an independent thinker? If everyone was given all the information they needed to make decisions FOR THEMSELVES (and not as part of some collective hive-mind)? It’s getting harder and harder to oppress the unwashed masses as it is!

You know what’s worse than a book with information that endangers the world as we know it? A MOVIE BASED ON THAT BOOK. You know what’s even worse? If the people who made the movie TONED DOWN some of the book’s heretical messages so that people will be TRICKED INTO BUYING AND POSSIBLY READING THE BOOK. The world as we know it could end on or around December 7th 2007 (depending on how long it will take the unwashed masses to read Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy. Personally, it took me 4 days, but I’m a pretty fast reader. I wouldn’t seriously worry until at least a week later).

Christians like feeling persecuted. Trust me, we do. It makes us feel better that there are a great many forces out there that disadvantage us. Plus, there is a certain romantic passion that comes with facing down our enemies as a united mass. That universal yearn to be martyred (without the attendant inconvenience of death) is fuelling an email campaign against Nicole Kidman’s latest outing to the silver screen. The two emails (sourced from snopes.com[1]) currently making the rounds are below the cut.

Friday Fun: Women are lousy workers who just wanna make babies!

October 26, 2007

Just some Friday fun, that is, if your fun consists of you banging your head against the table.

Justin Sanders, who guest-posts at Modite writes:

Feminism has destabilized society by undermining heterosexuality and the family. This perverse assault on gender difference is disguised as an act of “defense” of women’s’ and homosexuals’ “right” to be single and childless. Women have been duped into seeking “power” and “independence” (aloneness) through climbing the mirage of the corporate ladder.

..

The natural result of this union between the masculine and the feminine is the child – Heaven’s most precious gift. Without a child to care for, a woman often becomes frustrated, bitter and distracted. She often uses the “success” of her “career” (which is simply a glorified word for “job”) as a replacement for the void of the missing child. Motherhood changes a woman permanently. The job, which once seemed so important, quickly becomes secondary to the starry eyes of her loving child. I’ve seen far too many women recite feminists mantras only to discovery – in their late 30s – that all they really wanted was a warm baby to snuggle.

Because in Justin’s mind, it’s a crime to be single and childless – since, yknow, children are the gift from god and just all women get all so weepy when they see little baby booties!

But for some fun, here’s a song I’ve been listening to all morning.

This Asian Slut has a Question, Yo!

August 19, 2007

I tell racist jokes. I also tell dirty jokes that are incredibly sexist. Sometimes I combine the two and tell jokes that are demeaning to both racial minorities and women. Yet, I don’t feel that this undermines my status as a full-fledged, card-carrying, feminazi bitch. I even own Birkenstocks! (I would mention here that I don’t shave my legs, but seeing as how there’s nothing there to shave it’s largely irrelevant.)

News you should read about, the July 27th edition

July 27, 2007

(Via Boingboing) Senior Girl guides above 16 want to learn how to ‘manage their money’ and how to ‘practice safe sex’. Younger Girl Guides, on the other hand, want to learn how to ‘cook a healthy meal’ and how to ‘pitch a tent’.

(Via Feministing) A South African woman saw her house burn down earlier this week after she committed the grevious offence of wearing pants. Shit.

Over at Nerd World, Lev Gossman wonders how Harry and Ron eventually end up working as Aurors, seeing how they never really completed the school curriculum.

(Via Feministe) Drinking Aquafina and wondering why it tastes like tap water? Well, probably because it is tap water!

In Fast Company, it reports that one in six people in the world, or 1 billion people, have no safe portable water to drink, yet Americans move around 1 billion bottles of water across the country every week.

Fuck you Anya Hindmarch; or why Hindmarch represents all that is wrong with ‘green consumerism’

July 27, 2007

I hate plastic bags. Sure, I think that steps are needed to encourage people to combat unnecessary wastage of plastic bags, but that being said – Anya Hindmarch is not the saviour of the reusable bags movement.

Don’t know who Anya Hindmarch is? Lucky you.
