The good news?

http://brainhulklogicsmash.blogspot.com/2013/03/the-good-news.html

It never seems to fail... Whenever the door to door religion salesmen come knocking, I'm just not home. Unlike most that want to avoid them, I would actually like to explain the errors of their flawed arguments. Sadly, they either come when only my wife is home, or when we are both out. The latter was the case yesterday. We got back to…

Payers in school bill has passed in my state.

On August 9th in Wayne county of Missouri, (My home town). Missouri voters approved prayer issue. I voted against this, and at least I tried to do something good in my state. But the majority has spoken, but I remember something that Bill Maher once said: "Just because the majority out weights the minority, doesn't mean the minority is wrong. The majority once thought that the world was flat, but that didn't make them right."  It's tough to do something right, when everyone else is against…

9 year old kill himself in order to go to heaven

This is a piece, roughly translated it and edited to point out this part, of a news article that appeared in a newspaper in my country:

The Edifi (aka the godPad)

So it seems that the Christians have taken a new low now, by releasing their very own "Christian Tablet" they are calling The Edifi. 

Get this the Edifi, is equipped with its own web browser with a "safe search" built into it. In order words, its their nifty little way to censor its users shamelessly in order to avoid too much…

oh the U.S Media

Ya know, I really should stop reading news articles from CNN and Fox. The comments made by Americans usually portray that "ignorant" stereotype we so like to give ourselves to the rest of the world. 

 

I'm pretty sure a few of you guys have heard the story where a man, claiming to be a prophet, decapitated a women in a supermarket. The story from the U.k plainly states the man's mental state. Let's take a look at the…

A confusing bit of writing

I find it quite difficult to find a reliable news source that doesn't interject too much of their own biases into stories. As a result I tend to gravitate towards BBC news, as I find their coverage usually to be somewhat more middle of the road.

 

I was reading this article this morning:

For those who are of the TL;DR crowd…

A simple word change can make a difference.

Catching up on the local news today, I read about a teenager (18) who has been showing nude photos to under age people and allegedly also molested 2 others. 



The first article -from a local CNN affiliate- I ran into said:



A Henderson teen is under arrest, charged with statutory rape, sexually battery and a probation violation.The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint about 18-year-old Westley Aaron Williams, of Fletcher, showing nude pictures to…

Anti government protests in Croatia

Talk about blind leading the blind, people are outraged for a long time, but only now that people are revolting in Arab world people realized that they should finally say what they think, but in my opinion, to late, the politicians already stole everything they could and lost all the money, so what's the point?

Here are some news that I found in english about the protests:…

What I've learned from watching Fox News

A friend just posted this on FB and I thought I would share here.

 

Muslims are all terrorists, homosexuals are deviants, Planned Parenthood encourages child prostitution, Israel has never done anything wrong in history, NPR is the propaganda mouthpiece of George Soros, having an education is elitist, incarcerating a drugs addict for twenty years is the most effective form of treatment, Mr. Rogers ruined our generation because he made us feel loved, the only real Americans are…

The WAR on CHRISTmas!

I'm so sick of hearing about "the war on christmas" and seeing any

non-christian (or anyone willing to stand up for any non-christian)

being vilified in the news. Tonight there was a segment on one of my local news affiliates (WTAE Pittsburgh) about a nativity scene being moved from in front of the borough building in a local town after one woman (bravely) wrote in and asked that it be moved. It was moved a whole 20 yards from it's original… Continue

'Skeptics' article stirs up condemnation from skeptics, praise from holistic thinkers

















Oh wow, this is two days in a row that my inbox has had a treat waiting for me! Mike Adams, author of yesterday's comedic gem from the webzine Natural News, has just penned a biting retort to the resultant fury of those pesky skeptics.



As to my criticism yesterday regarding Adams' utter disregard for providing hyperlinks to support his statements, he seems to have amended this journalistic oversight as this new article… Continue

What 'skeptics' really believe about vaccines, medicine, consciousness and the universe

I am on the mailing list of many, err, "interesting" websites; the crazier the site, the more likely that I am to sign up for email updates. How could anyone turn down a daily dose of hilarity delivered right to their inbox? This morning, I discovered a comedic gem lurking in my unread mail.



Why do I find today's offering to be particularly funny? Because it is an article lambasting the supposed views of some ambiguous group of skeptics with no citations, references, or… Continue

Oh my God!

A childless Indian man sliced off his tongue as an offering to the god Shiva in the hope of becoming a father.

Mr Kumar, from a village in Banda district around 125 miles from the city of Lucknow, was taken to a private hospital by other devotees.



Doctors said he is out of danger, but would probably suffer from… Continue

Time to call you US Rep

Congressional representatives don't have enough on their hands and haven't learned from the fall. H.RES. 397 seeks to declare the history of the US Christian. Time to crank up the machine and get the word out. Email your rep as well.
