‘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!

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. 

Tolerance for religion

Standard

I was watching Religulous the other day when the doorbell rang heralding the arrival of my good friends the Mormons. I carefully kept out of site hoping that these suited minions of pseudo-Scientology would give up and take their gold-tablet loving asses back to the stake house and leave me the fuck alone! Little did I know that my wonderful little daughter had slipped away from me and had run to answer the door. Before I could catch her I was standing face to face with ‘The Lords faithful’ greeting them and trying to figure out an escape plan.

You see, my wife and I had been baptized Mormons many years ago in an effort to figure out how to allay the doubts that we had regarding religion and faith. We had grown wary of the various sects of Christianity due to the logical conclusion that none of them had a viable  interpretation of the faith and were just winging it. Both of us were, by that time, really non-believers in the making and did not know how to take that next step toward complete mental freedom. Even now my wife is still to uncomfortable psychologically to say that she is an atheist but I know that she does not believe in a deity of any sort. From here I continue my uncomfortable encounter.

The two Mormons identified themselves as our family’s home teachers and expressed wished to reclaim us from the ranks of inactivity. I replied that we had distanced ourselves from the church and had no desire to continue our association with LDS and thanked them profusely for their time and efforts. They, in turn, gave me a couple of stern looks of disbelief and continued to press on in the soul-saving effort to reclaim us from the Devil’s clutches. Now one does not know the tenacity of a Mormon who has had his corn flakes pissed in, but I’ll tell you, these folks can shit a few bricks on command when properly challenged and I could see the shit eeking out of their Haggars as they stood there! They then began a series of questions designed to extricate the reasons for our reluctance to enter into The Celestial Kingdom. I told them that I had shitted in my magical underwear and had been forced to throw it away, further damning me to an eternal fiery death with a side of pestilence. No, I didn’t tell them that, it just popped into my head, but I sure as Hell thought it! 

Actually I told them that we would not be needing their services and that I had become an atheist in a strong, like fucking Superman rending steel with his bare hands strong type of way, and that the chance of us coming back into the fold was absolutely none. The guys continued to eye us as if Satan were behind the door holding a gun to our heads or possibly aliens had inserted their shit radar into our anuses and around our brain stems. Taking ‘no’ for an answer really hadn’t crossed their minds and certainly didn’t appear in Joe Smith’s book on how to reclaim fucked up followers, but I was firm and kept trying to focus these clowns on the inevitable. They were going to leave with a few names crossed off of the church roster and that was that! I imagined pulling out my trusty bottle of Anti-Christ and hosing ’em down until they dissolved like a donut in Brundlefly’s vomit but stuck to gently closing the door and thanking them for wasting my atheist documentary time. 

I returned to the couch feeling a little sad for them because they so blindly and strongly follow their faith, but I have to take a stand somewhere in the scheme of personal belief and throw down the spear. Now when the JW’s show up again, I’m whippin’ out the Anti-Christ and goin’ to town! Woot! Woot! On go the black robes and the goat’s head and out come the rubber penises baby!! PEACE!

 

 

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.

We are NOT a significant race, we are but one of MILLIONS!

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!

Of theists and anti-theists!

Standard

Good morrow kind readers! I know that my posts haven’t been very prolific in the last month, I was busy eating babies and performing all of the other rituals that people expect us ungodly atheists to be performing! So far ‘Our Lord Satan’ hasn’t done shit for my lottery numbers OR given me the clairvoyance to find the Death Star plans! But that shit aside, let me run down this weeks reasons for my being a strong anti-theist. This position is held by those of us in the atheist community who DO NOT wish that god was real! We are the ones that feel that a 24/7 cosmic overlord is actually a BAD thing and do NOT want a kindly old grandfather in a white robe to be able to see us as we are masturbating! We have a Pope for that! Anyway, the reasons!

First there is the 20 year old who is fulfilling ‘God’s Plan’ and dealing with an aggressive form of M.S and will never see a 30th birthday!, Second there is the two children 4 and 2yrs old who’s mom went off the road and was killed leaving the 4 yr old to rescue the 2 yr old. After the horriffic accident and having to climb over their mother’s dead corpse, two fishermen discovered them huddled underneath a blanket close to the car and took them to a hospital. Of course assholes had to write in that it was ‘God’s Will’ that brought the fishermen to the aid of the kids! Really?! Thank ‘Our Lord’ that he couldn’t be bothered to begin with NOT letting 2 little kids endure that horror! Thanks be to god! Also, third, the Kartrashians are still alive! Is this not evidence of the absence of a merciful god? Four, Honey BooBoo! Five, thousands of innocent children still suffer in the world while an imaginary god grants us free will to kill them! These are just a few reasons, more will surely follow!

Some people are just fucked in the brain pan! Yes an almighty being sent forth ‘His’ followers to write a book in several languages that would become dead forcing scholars paid by kings to interpret it as well as they could while deleting any references injurious to the present king’s rule! Sounds like a being that knows all and sees all!

As I write this blog I will include certain arguements against deism just as info to those who read so that when they are attacked by zealots they can cite facts and logical conclusion contained within these writings. I will include more in-depth references as the blog goes on and try to provide a witty delivery to make the slice even deeper! Why do I have a boner for religion do you ask? Why are us atheists SO angry? Answer: I’m not! I am just providing something for those in MY community, something that they can use to strengthen their position against the media machine that drives organized religion. Also, I believe that religion NEEDS to be approached with aggression due to it’s infectious nature and because of the lies that it spreads. I live in a small town where if you actually are brave enough to say that you don’t believe in god then you had better be prepared for a bunch of ‘are you insane!’ looks and a disbelief that you could actually put such blasphemy into words!

The great writer Christopher Hitchens once said, “That which can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof.” So if you use that logic as I most certainly do, then you can look a theist in the face and say, “Why should I have to prove to YOU that I am right when you can’t cite ONE SHRED of evidence for YOUR beliefs.” This can be said with absolute conviction as it is patently ridiculous for anyone to attempt to cite proof of biblical happenstance! There is none and no scientist worth a degree in his/her field will back ‘scientific’ evidence proving religious claims. The very fact that a sane stable person can believe in bronze age mythology just because it was told to them by their parents attests to the lemming-like nature of most of humanity. I didn’t believe that Jesus walked on water when I was 11 years old and I was an undereducated mook who threw rocks at windows for fun! It totally boggles my mind that there are people out there with degrees in science that believe in god!

Besides not believing in god, I am also an anti-theist. I have no wish for the stories of the bible to be true or for a cosmic deity to have watch over me 24/7;it’s creepy! I DO believe that agnostics are just atheists without balls, as John Stewart puts it. I feel sorry for atheists who say that they wish it were true and that they could believe in god! I wish that I had a better understanding of the process of human life and also wish I had more than my allotted years, but not on the condition that I am guided by any of the gods that men on this Earth have created! These gods are the ridiculous creations of feeble-minded tribesmen trying to control their fellow humans and they did a piss-poor job of most of it if you are not a lemming who believes every fairy tale that you are told!

If you were to raise two human beings in a vaacum of knowledge and tell them that everything that you give them to read was absolute truth, then you could give one the bible and one a copy of Grimm’s Fairy Tales and they would not be able to tell the fairy stories from the OTHER fairy stories! Well, thats my post for today. I will try not to leave such a time gap between posts. Now I am off to either pull my pud or go to church, I just can’t tell which one is more of a waste of my time! Peace!!

 

 

The book of whatever!

Standard

I begin the book of whatever with the continued understanding that all of the supposed historical claims of the bible are still entirely false. No archeologist, paleontologist, whateverontologist has EVER been able to give credence to the fable that is the testament of the one true god! As the research goes on the bible fades further and further into the realm of fairy tale nonsense, freeing it’s followers to embrace a more ridiculous claim or to come to their senses. The sensible claim of course is to listen to provable science and expell the insane explanation in it’s favor.

I see today, a Romney ticket devoted to the perverse supposition that an old man in the sky sees us 24/7. The worst of it is that the christians had decried this idiot’s Mormon beliefs only 10 short years ago. Now that he is the strongest candidate the christians are willing to basically start in motion their own book of Revalation by voting for the ‘Apostate from Hell.” Mormonism is an affront to christianity as described by the christians themselves but now that the only choice is the black dude or the Mormon they will vote for the ‘demon.’ Love you guys! You are all deluded into thinking that your god is alive and you waste countless hours going to church to learn useless baseless crap! None of the religions practiced today have a shred of trackable, provable, historical proof as to their validity and would do best with being outlawed as damaging to the psyche.

Personally, I believe that Obomney cannot help any of us and should be abandoned, but one of these crooks has to be elected. Chose the one to give away more tax dollars to the ‘poor’ or the one who gives us away to the billionaires! They are both crooks! Fuck the generational poor AND fuck the billionaires! Fuck Obama AND fuck Romney! On one end you get the ‘one true gawd’ and on the other you get bigger gubment! No win sitch! I will have a dozen beers on it and call y’all later! I am pissed and confused!
