‘Dawkins, Hitchens and Harris Islamophobic,’ says Salon Magazine?! These men are RELIGIOPHOBIC due to the infectious idiocy of blind faith! I, as an anti-theist, agree with them fully and DON”T CARE what the ‘New SS’ says about my opinions; the New SS being the complete Left Wing nut jobs that patrol the PC universe. Let me remind my readers that I am a completely independent thinking middle of the road politico. I subscribe to common sense and reason over knee-jerk Left or Right reactionary bullshit. I weigh the issues and think before I draw a conclusion. Example: Obama is same old politics as usual. George W. was an idiot legacy child of a political dynasty, there!  Obama is just a crooked Chicago lawyer, is that too hard to fathom in politics?

Now back to the subject. Hitchens said in his book, ‘god id NOT great’ that religion poisons everything, and he was right. Dennett, Dawkins and Harris continue the ‘Four Horsemen’ fight against religious oppression by attacking the idiocy put forth by the religions in particular! They are simply pointing out what is obvious on today’s religious fronts. Right now Islam is responsible for many of the world’s ills. All religion poisons, it’s just that Islam is particularly poisonous right at this juncture. Thank the above-mentioned scholars for telling the truth about these awful blind-faith diseases and getting the sizable press coverage. Thank you to Salon for just playing into the game and further publicizing the atheist agenda.

Right now you have these PC idiots trying with all of their might to legislate EVERYTHING that a human being says so that they can control free speech. These are the very same people who drive the Suby to the Whole Foods to get the green smoothie for the acupuncture session and talk about ‘Moderate Muslims,’ oblivious to the European Imams publicized remarks about just ‘sitting back and breeding out; the Infidel. 

Religion is bad no matter what! Why?! Because you DON”T see scientists ‘just blindly’ following facts! Facts are right in front of the face! It doesn’t take blind faith to look into a microscope or a telescope and identify what you are looking at, it takes intelligence! Religion promotes blindness and always will regardless of how many religious institutions teach science. They also try to screw up the works with unproven mythology and faulty religious doctrine. The only reason that these institutions have great science programs is because the churches are more loyal to the dollar than they are to GOD!

Rick Warren

Standard

To my blogodytes,

My heart goes out to Rev. Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life. May your faith help you and lift you up! I cannot possibly understand what you are going thru now, but I wish you the best. I am sorry and hope that you find peace.

Articles, articles and more articles!

Standard

I hate to gloat oh faithful flock of minions, but I post, yet again, just a small article among MILLIONS that prove that the the bible is an insignificant speck on an insignificant speck in just one galaxy among MILLIONS of other galaxies that contain billions of other planets! We are but a blue speck in our own little corner of space and have no effect on the greater scheme. If I could put a christian in a spacecraft and place him/her 3.7 Billion miles away from the Earth I think ideas and beliefs would change in that little ship!

Yet ANOTHER article disproving biblical claims

Astronomers Anticipate 100 Billion Earth-Like Planets

Apr. 3, 2013 — Researchers at The University of Auckland have proposed a new method for finding Earth-like planets and they anticipate that the number will be in the order of 100 billion.

The strategy uses a technique called gravitational microlensing, currently used by a Japan-New Zealand collaboration called MOA (Microlensing Observations in Astrophysics) at New Zealand’s Mt John Observatory. Their work will appear in the Oxford University Press journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Lead author Dr Phil Yock from the University of Auckland’s Department of Physics explains that the work will require a combination of data from microlensing and the NASA Kepler space telescope.

“Kepler finds Earth-sized planets that are quite close to parent stars, and it estimates that there are 17 billion such planets in the Milky Way. These planets are generally hotter than Earth, although some could be of a similar temperature (and therefore habitable) if they’re orbiting a cool star called a red dwarf.”

“Our proposal is to measure the number of Earth-mass planets orbiting stars at distances typically twice the Sun-Earth distance. Our planets will therefore be cooler than the Earth. By interpolating between the Kepler and MOA results, we should get a good estimate of the number of Earth-like, habitable planets in the Galaxy. We anticipate a number in the order of 100 billion.”

“Of course, it will be a long way from measuring this number to actually finding inhabited planets, but it will be a step along the way.”

The first planet orbiting a Sun-like star was not found until 1995, despite strenuous efforts by astronomers. Dr Yock explains that this reflects the difficulty of detecting from a distance a tiny non-luminous object like Earth orbiting a bright object like the Sun. The planet is lost in the glare of the star, so indirect methods of detection must be used.

Whereas Kepler measures the loss of light from a star when a planet orbits between us and the star, microlensing measures the deflection of light from a distant star that passes through a planetary system en route to Earth — an effect predicted by Einstein in 1936.

In recent years, microlensing has been used to detect several planets as large as Neptune and Jupiter. Dr Yock and colleagues have proposed a new microlensing strategy for detecting the tiny deflection caused by an Earth-sized planet. Simulations carried out by Dr Yock and his colleagues — students and former students from The University of Auckland and France — showed that Earth-sized planets could be detected more easily if a worldwide network of moderate-sized, robotic telescopes was available to monitor them.

Coincidentally, just such a network of 1m and 2m telescopes is now being deployed by Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network (LCOGT) in collaboration with SUPA/St Andrews (Scottish Universities Physics Alliance), with three telescopes in Chile, three in South Africa, three in Australia, and one each in Hawaii and Texas. This network is used to study microlensing events in conjunction with the Liverpool Telescope in the Canary Islands which is owned and operated by Liverpool John Moores University.

It is expected that the data from this suite of telescopes will be supplemented by measurements using the existing 1.8m MOA telescope at Mt John, the 1.3m Polish telescope in Chile known as OGLE, and the recently opened 1.3m Harlingten telescope in Tasmania.

The article will be published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. 

Sam Harris and Islam

Standard

Sam Harris is as you state, anti-theist as am I. I am not interested in pandering to Islam or to any other religion. The plain truth as demonstrated by the followers of these faiths is that we are all better off without them.

No problemo asshole!

The title is a T2 reference for those who are NOT geeks! I have a great task before me to create videos on my Youtube station that aren’t blatantly offensive. I am aware that most deists would not afford atheists that kind of slack, but I am not them! I am an atheist trying to appeal to atheists! I want people who are considering leaving the bondage of the church to see my opinions as not just another christian-like attack on something not understood, but a glance into logic and reason! Evidence presented in an understandable format has all of the power in an aguement for the belief in myth and foolishness! Well presented evidence and logical arguement will always win an open mind to common sense. Do I say that religion is NOT poison and should NOT be eradicated? NO! I believe that a world without religion is a world of forward-thinking people with their thoughts firmly planted in the future of sense and reality!

The idiots of Benny Hinn and that asshole Osteen are in need of a wake-up call because they are relying on their cult leaders to guide their life in the name of a god that the cult-leading asswipe doesn’t even believe in! Those tele-assholes don’t believe in the Bronze-Age shit that they are peddling to the lemmings in the audience, they are laughing all the way to the spiritual Fuck-You Bank! A fatter christian wallet means another Mercedes Benz for religious leaders!

I will warn all who blog here that I do NOT want anyone to visit who will be insulted and just leave. If you are insulted but have a seed of doubt planted because of the evidence against ALL religion presented then come on back! Most religion is easily debunked because it has NO CONCRETE EVIDENCE and relies on the lemming-brain of the common human being to believe in hokey ancient fairy tales! So, if you want reason and enlightenment then come on down! If you want snake oil and complete bullshit, then listen to your pastor!

Please take a minute to consider what is here. I don’t do this to help myself, I do it to help others to logic and reason! We need people to stop living vicariously thru the Kartrashians and take charge of their own lives individually! Lemmings listen to a pastor, free-thinkers listen to evidence! Faith is just a word to fool smart people into deciding foolishly!

Thank GAWD!

I saw an interesting but tragic news story on Saturdat that featured a man who was swallowed up by a sinkholewhile sleeping. The funny thing was is that 2 days after this had happened they called off the search and are assuming that the guy is dead. On the sidelines the guy’s family is seeing it as a sign from god that the family bible made it out of the house intact! Maybe, just maybe the LOGICAL thing to do would be to ask why oh why the fuck did ‘you’ have to take whats-his-nuts and save us the fucking BIBLE?! These idiots probably go with the Gawd’s Plan explanation anyway. Also, it seems quite clear that Tebowing is no longer helping Tim Tebow as his star is already on the wane! Should he file a grievance or just change gods? If you can fire your agent for not doing his job, can you not fire your GOD for not living up to ‘his’ promises? I would! Hey Zeus! Yaweh just ain’t cuttin’ it these days regardless of how often I make myself look like an idiot Tebowing to him. You want the job? Show me da munny!! No less than $20 million to sign! I am also fiddling with my hitchens67 youtube channel to put up some special effects and get it more interesting. Please visit if you have an inclination, I would greatly appreciate it and I comment in return! I will be adding some historical points and some debating info for the non-believer to use in arguements so look for this as well. I will catch up to y’all later and peace out!

More Men…and the pope!

Standard

When I joined the Mormon church I thought it meant More Men!-The Village Priest. That wuz funny…not! Sorry, bloggin’ by the light of the flourescent candle here. Helpin’ with the demise of the wonder of ‘God’s glory, the human eye, which could’nt have possibly come of several million years of evolution! You say GOD?! I say, “If GOD wuz SOOoo great then why didn’t I get Predator vision? HMMMM? I want infra red, thermal and spectral analyzing capabilities! I want to be able to hunt Gary Busey in a freezing meat locker and do battle with Danny Glover! This is too much to ask I guess, because I got stuck with perfectly mundane binocular vision. I don’t even have eyeballs that rotate in different directions like a lizard! No laser vision, heat vision, X-Ray vision, (I’d use it to sparingly invade personal privacy but I’m a man, what do you expect?), etc.
No, I haven’t had to fly off and weld the hull of a sinking ship with my heat vision. I’m stuck listening to the prattlings of reformed but still useless unemployed drug addicts showing me cell phone pics of rocks that are in the shape of Jesus, (look! you can see where he shat himself!!). It’s a miracle! Fucker won’t give you a Goddamned job but he’s free flowing with the miracle snow globes and Buddy Christ dashboard statues! Go figure. I guess that if I were a toothless idiot with an I.Q of 60 then I too, would be impressed with cheap parlor tricks. Lord? I pray…please saw this lady in the box in half and parade her corpse around the room! If you do this I will forever be your humble servant! NEXT!!
Goal for today: Punch the Pope in his fucking eye for being a little quitter bitch! What was his real name? John Ratzenberger? So does that mean he hangs out with Cardinal Normie and Father Woody? Well, he retired today and as of 8PM Central Asshole time he officially retreated to Birchegaden to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest to restart the Third Reich! Being an evil pedophile, I’m sure he is more than man for the job! Be sure to stock up heavily on those Hugo Boss SS uniforms, the athletic fitting ones of course, and Reisen, lots of Storck Chocolate Reisen! One cannot say that the ex-pope is a man without reisen!
For those of you who care, Princess Kate is soon to make that slobbering slope-browed, weak-chinned peice of effeminate ragweed Prince Charles a grandfather! Prince Harry on the other hand is unfortunately going to continue to just fuck himself! Also in important news, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ARE actually Satan, those of you lemmings that follow the show have already inadvertantly sold your souls. Sorry! Too late! We have a no return policy and all sales are fucking final so PISS OFF!!

So this post has a rather weak content, no real purpose! Good! I at least feel better! And thats what really counts! Remember folks, it’s not about you..it’s about me! Always me!! So before I digress into constructing Mohammed bobble-heads or statues of Bhudda made out of my own shit, let me end this post with one last thing. Releasing yourself from the yoke of religion is like eating an entire pan of Ex Lax brownies; you may shit your brains out at first, but when it’s all over you feel so much cleaner inside!
