#64379 Political Cartoon: A debilitating disorder

Posted by Frozenwolf150 on 05 May 2017 - 08:41 AM

Thoracic Retrograde Upward Migratory Peristalsis is a serious disability affecting billionaire politicians that causes them to spontaneously excrete out the wrong end.  Symptoms can be exacerbated by stressful situations like having to speak in front of a rally, or a diet consisting entirely of fast food.  Please help spread awareness so that one day we can find a cure for T.R.U.M.P.

#48919 music?

Posted by CainEnabled on 01 September 2013 - 08:24 PM

Right now, I'm in bed asleep because it's 2:31 a.m. Atlantic time.
 
But later this afternoon, I will be listening to Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” and Mozart’s “Eine kleine Nachtmusik,” first movement. Note: the version of “Canon” I heard on the radio had more harpsichord than the YouTube version below. I like harpsichords.

 
I've also been listening to Pachelbel's "Canon in D", but indirectly :)

How about Militant Agnosticism: I don't know, and neither do you.

#66169 Perspective

Posted by Logicpill on 01 November 2017 - 10:54 AM

Over the years, I have found that when true believers discover my Atheism -- this alone is enough to send them into a panic.
[smilie=happyspin.gif]


I have found this to be true as well. In my experience it seems that what they fear most is the threat of doubt in their own minds. To a rational person cognitive dissonance means there are more questions to be explored. But in regards to deeply held religious belief, cognitive dissonance is a sure sign that you are asking too many questions already.

#65686 Who Still Supports Tweety McRacism?

Posted by Frozenwolf150 on 17 August 2017 - 06:24 PM

You'd think Trump would be more sensitive to the plight of minorities, given that his wife is an immigrant, his son-in-law is Jewish, and Trump is a person of color.

#65641 Did He Just Blame The Victims?

Posted by Frozenwolf150 on 14 August 2017 - 09:43 PM

Has anyone else noticed the similarities between Right Wing terrorists and Islamic terrorists?  Both groups:

 

* Are motivated by religious extremism.

* Hate Jews, gays, and anyone who doesn't look, think, or act like them.

* Claim they are the real victims and are merely striking back.
* Are in a small minority, yet try to speak for an entire group or nation.
* View peaceful activism as insufficient, or a sign of weakness.
* Feel justified killing people who had nothing to do with their grievances.
* Frequently kill the very people they claim to be fighting for.
 
And before I forget:
* Both have the support of Donald Trump.
 
As a reminder, the former are considered by law enforcement to be a bigger terrorist threat to the US than ISIS.

Reality is beginning to set in I think, & running a country isn't the simple game he thought it would be, I'm sure. Everything isn't done to his specifications by his minions & the spoiled brat doesn't like it.

#64288 Surrounded By Cows

Posted by Joe Bloe on 28 April 2017 - 10:48 AM

When I was hitch-hiking around the country (many decades ago) I got stuck between towns in the middle of the night so I headed off the road and went into a paddock to sleep under a tree. A few hours later I woke up and found myself surrounded by cows - dozens of them! I nearly shit myself and I spent a couple of minutes trying to figure the best way to get out of the situation. I decided "no sudden movements" would be the best idea and finally plucked up the courage to walk towards the cows --- have you ever seen how sharp their horns are --- and much to my relief they just moved aside and let me pass. I discovered (years later) that it's just something that cows do. If you lie down in a paddock the whole herd will surround you and stand there looking at you.

 

This guy used the cow's inquisitiveness to make a great little video:

#64225 A Christian Missionary On The Phone

Posted by Joe Bloe on 19 April 2017 - 08:34 PM

I just had a telephone call from a Christian who wanted to talk to me about the role god plays in my life. This is the first time I've had a proselytiser call me on the telephone so I decided to list the main points of our conversation here while they are still fresh in my mind.

 

 

I asked him to describe god otherwise we wouldn't know what we were talking about.

 

He said things like god is perfect, righteous, just, kind, loving, etcetera.

 

I said that was interesting but how would I recognise god if I saw him.

 

The Christian said it doesn't work that way. He said god is invisible.

 

I pointed out that god "spoke to Moses face to face as a man speaks to his friend".

 

I forget exactly what the Christian said but it was something about the bible having many things to say and it is unfair to pick out just one verse at a time.

 

I pointed out he had done exactly the same thing to me - quoted a single verse that says god is invisible!

 

He implied that Christians can do that because they understand the subject better than non-Christians.

 

Then I told him I wasn't relying on just one verse because Jacob had also said, "I have seen god face to face and my life is preserved."

 

From his tone of voice I got the impression that he thought I was making it up so he tried to trip me up by asking where that text appears in the bible - book, chapter, and verse.

 

I told him I didn't know for sure but suggested he could find it easily enough. "Have you got a Concordance," I asked him.

 

There was a short hesitation and then a very cautious, "yes." (I don't think he even knew what a Concordance was.)

 

So I told him to look up the word "Jacob" and that would take him directly to the verse.

 

But he never did find it - so I found it for him because I actually have a Concordance. [Genesis 32:30]

 

Again I've forgotten his exact words, but he started pushing the idea that I had taken the verse out of context.

 

That's the thing that really irks me about Christians: this guy had obviously never heard about Jacob seeing god face to face until I mentioned it, and now he was trying to tell me that I had it wrong and he knew what it really meant!

 

As it happens he never did get around to explaining the context and the conversation ended not long afterwards.

 

I have a feeling he quickly went to a dictionary to look up "Concordance". I wouldn't mind betting that he thought it was some sort of diabolical anti-Christian device invented by the devil and used by atheists to annoy believers. If so, he will be in for a surprise when he learns the truth. :-)

 

 

 

 

After I hung up the telephone, this old song popped into my head

 

Royal Telephone

(written by Frederick Lehman, 1919)

(recorded by Jimmy Little, 1963)

 

Telephone to glory, oh, what joy divine!
I can feel the current moving on the line.
Made by God the Father for His very own,
You may talk to Jesus on this royal telephone.

 

Central's never busy, always on the line,
You can hear from heaven almost any time.
'Tis a royal service, built for one and all,
When you get in trouble, give this royal line a call.

 

etcetera...

#63639 Today on Tweety McThinskin

Posted by jonathanlobl on 05 March 2017 - 07:21 AM

I hope that his Glorious Orangeness does continue tweeting.  Unless this stuff is widely spread, it would be too easy to conceal and destroy.  Future historians will never believe this weird shit actually happened, unless there is evidence to back it up.  By tweeting, the evidence is saved for the future.

 

Even I, in the present, can barely believe this is real.  How can the future possibly believe this happened?  Let him tweet.  We need the proof.

#63239 Flee At Once

Posted by Joe Bloe on 03 February 2017 - 10:32 AM

You've probably heard that joke about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who sent anonymous letters

to five of his friends. The message said, "We are discovered. Flee!" and one of his friends

immediately disappeared and was never heard from again.

 

 

I've just found an earlier version of the story in a Kansas newspaper from 1876:

#62816 Little Johnny and Mom’s Lover

Posted by Cousin Ricky on 08 January 2017 - 03:20 PM

A woman takes a lover during the day, while her husband is at work—not aware that her 9-year-old son is hiding in the closet. Her husband comes home unexpectedly, so she hides her lover in the closet. The boy now has company.
“Dark in here,” the boy whispers.
“Yes, it is,” the man replies awkwardly.
“I have a baseball. Want to buy it?”
“No, thanks.”
“My dad’s outside.”
“Okay, how much?”
“$250.”
A few weeks later, the same thing happens, and the boy and the mom’s lover find themselves in the closet together.
“Dark in here.”
“Yes, it is.”
“I have a baseball glove. Want to buy it?”
“No, thanks.”
“I’ll tell.”
“How much?”
“$750.”
A few days later, the father says to the boy, “Grab your glove. Let’s go outside and toss the baseball!”
“I can’t,” the boy replies. “I sold them.”
“How much did you sell them for?” the dad asks.
“$1,000,” the boy proudly announces.
“That’s terrible to overcharge your friends like that,” the father says, shocked. “That is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess.”
At church that Sunday, the father alerts the priest, makes his child sit in the confession booth, and closes the door.
“Dark in here,” the boy says.
The priest replies, “Don’t start that shit again.”

#62518 It's Xmas time, trot out the crying statues.

Posted by Cousin Ricky on 01 December 2016 - 07:36 PM

Notice how the editor sorted the various events into descending order of importance:

 

(1) A TV crew with CNN affiliate WVLT spotted something of a miracle amid all that

destruction ... a statue of Jesus -- covered with soot and ashes, but still standing.

It was the only thing left after the home burned to the ground.

 

(2) Earlier this week Isaac McCord, an employee at the Dollywood theme park, says

he found a partially burned page from the Bible's book of Joel ... McCord immediately

took a picture of what he'd found and posted it to Facebook, where it's been shared

tens of thousands of times. Many commenters took it as a sign from God.

 

(3) At least seven people have lost their lives in the wildfires that have ravaged Sevier

County and Gatlinburg this week.

 

Kind of like how on 9/11, nearly 3000 people died, but the Christians were praising their god for saving a piece of welded steel shaped like an ancient Roman execution device.

#62410 Exorcism school? Really?

Posted by Sammie Jo on 19 November 2016 - 11:52 AM

When it was reported that Antonin Scalia believed in an actual, literal Satan, I was surprised at how many people were shocked by that news. Scalia was Roman Catholic. He was supposed to believe in Satan. I certainly did; in fact, while my final crisis of faith hit me between 2002 and 2005, I was afraid that actual, literal devils were actually, literally attacking me.

Then I remembered, from back during my Catholic days, HRCC corporate expressing grave concern that some Catholics no longer believed in devils. What? I remember thinking. How is it possible to be Catholic and not believe in devils?

 

I continue to be amused that people are surprised that Christians believe in exorcism and demon possession.

 
But here’s the real shocker: Some years after I had come out to my mom as an atheist, she thought I still believed in Satan! She was surprised when I told her I didn’t. (It’s taken a long time for simple news to sink in with her. I don’t think that process is complete, or ever will be. No one wants to believe that their son is destined to burn in hell forever.)

The Catholic religion is one micro smidge away from being witchcraft. Think about, praying to statues, burning incense and candles, chanting/repetitive prayer.......
