#64379 Political Cartoon: A debilitating disorder

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 :)

#67552 April 18 (Rapture Day)

Posted by Cousin Ricky on 17 April 2018 - 07:18 PM

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.

He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.

When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk behind the gate.

When he was close enough, he called out, “Excuse me, where are we?”

“This is Heaven, sir,” the man answered.

“Wow! Would you happen to have some water?” the man asked.

“Of course, sir. Come right in, and I’ll have some ice water brought right up.”

The man gestured, and the gate began to open.

“Can my friend,” gesturing toward his dog, “come in, too?” the traveler asked.

“I’m sorry, sir, but we don’t allow pets.”

The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog.

After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence.

As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book.

“Excuse me!” he called to the man. “Do you have any water?”

“Yeah, sure, there’s a pump over there, come on in.”

“How about my friend here?” the traveler gestured to the dog.

“There should be a bowl by the pump.”

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.

The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog.

When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree.

“What do you call this place?” the traveler asked.

“This is Heaven,” he answered.

“Well, that’s confusing,” the traveler said. “The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.”

“Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That’s hell.”

“Doesn’t it make you mad for them to use your name like that?”

“No, we’re just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.”

#67540 Drama at American Atheists

Posted by jonathanlobl on 16 April 2018 - 04:34 AM

Atheists have a long ways to go to catch up with Christians in the bad behavior department. 

 

 

More to the point, we don't protect criminals from law enforcement.  Even when they are one of us.  Sometimes, real social justice hurts.

#67414 Best Gay Rights Group Name Ever

There is something enjoyable about seeing a fundamentalist hate monger deported.  

 

When I was a young child in elementary school, my social studies text book told me that the Chinese had expelled their missionaries.  Even then, I couldn't understand what the problem was.  Of course, they had expelled their missionaries.  Who wouldn't?

He needs an automatic rifle strapped to his back as well.

 

 

​If Jesus had been shot to death instead of crucified -- think of all the Christians wearing little guns under their throats.

I just got electric service last week and Internet yesterday, and I’m feeling... overwhelmed. I did not expect to need a readjustment period for modern conveniences!

 

So, I’m back, but please forgive me if I take a while to resume full participation.

#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?

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.
