Definition of Failure

As we all watch in anticipation of the next killer hurricane 'Rita' slamming into our gulf coast, there has been a request by the whitehouse to alter the Google search engine. As of now, if you search with the keyword 'failure' the number one response is a biography of George W. Bush. Try it.
It is actually a result of a practice called 'googlebombing' where a number of webmasters create links with the word 'failure' to that website.
Like this... failure failure failure failure .
Google representatives say they will not manually alter the results of this search, but they don't condone the practice of googlebombing.
failure failure failure
It appears that the right-wingers are trying to battle in this arena too as the number two result of the failure search is - Those darn kids!

ID vs Evolution - Is the Pres on the Fence?

Listen to NPR's Daniel Schorr on Intelligent Design and Katrina. This was from August 31st which is supposedly Mr. Schorr's 89'th birthday. I hope I'm as cool as him when I'm that age.

I realize it was a while ago when this aired, but I really thought it was timely, wise, and worthy of a repost.

Now read the radical mumbo jumbo of his 'christian' attackers -> website1 website2 website3 . Notice how they are so clever with the cut-n-paste. Each story is exactly the same. Get some creativity you creationists!

UFO's Big Foot and GOD

I think it's just disgusting how psychics prey on the gullible 'Christians' that think they can communicate with their recently departed loved ones. It's all a sham folks.

It's hard for me to believe that even in this age of technological revolution and scientific discovery, people still believe in...

Ghosts UFO's Aliens Chiropractics Paranormal and... GOD, all of which are considered to be just mythical magical mumbo-jumbo by most skeptics, and critical thinkers.

All of the above links are from . It has an array of other weird stuff that people believe explained from a skeptical point of view.

Also read this about a so-called scientific experiment studying prayer and its effect on healing.

"...if God is omniscient and omnipotent, he should not need to be reminded or inveigled into healing someone."

Here's a great story about how when he died, Ray Wallace's family could finally reveal that he was the one that started the American Big Foot hoax.

I know that the majority of people have some belief structure regarding the spiritual world, but really only about 33% of earthlings claim to be 'Christian' and that includes Catholics, Jehovah's Witness's and even Quakers. I don't have a problem with religion. I do have a problem when 'religious' people use their beliefs to take advantage of the weak or worse yet try to legislate their morality on others. Gambling, prostitution, recreational drugs, more drugs, j-walking, helmet laws, etc. etc. (Although if you're not going to wear a helmet you should have to prove that you have good medical insurance. I don't want to have my medical bills and insurance rates hiked up to pay for the idiot that is in a coma with no insurance.) All of those links come from the book Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do - The Absurdity of Consensual Crimes in a Our Free Country. A great book by Peter McWilliams who also wrote: LIFE 101: Everything We Wish We Had Learned About Life In School—But Didn't, DO IT! Let's Get Off Our Buts, LOVE 101: To Love Oneself Is the Beginning of a Lifelong Romance, and others.

The Christian that says, "If there were no god, everyone would be free to rape, kill, steal, etc.", doesn't realize that most people want to treat people the way they want to be treated. The golden rule is one ideology that is present in all major religions. (but then it usually only pertains to people of the same religion.) To quote Cerberus, one of the founder of The Church of the FSM, "Religious war at its very simplest is killing each other over who has the best imaginary friend." It's interesting to note that in New Orleans at the superdome, during what seemed to be anarchy, people gathered their chairs in little circles throughout the lobby area to form bands of protection. It is human nature to group with people of like interests and beliefs for the purpose of survival. I believe people are basically good and fair, at least with the people in their circle, and if there were no laws, they would at least form codes of acceptable behavior to provide protection for the group. Many of the fundamental laws that are set forth in religious dogma are also simple common sense that normal intelligent people would obey with or without the doctrine.

Now I know that you have clicked on every link above and read every article in it's entirety. So now you are enlightened. Go forth in critical thinking and spread the word that there is no Santa Claus even though you trusted your parents when they tricked you into going to bed early one night a year.

Starting Over

Well somehow my blog got deleted. So I'll start over. I've taken this opportunity to revise the tone of this blog. Rather than being so harsh and belligerent, I've decided to be a little more informative and unemotional. Hopefully this change of attitude will serve to invite readers who may not share some of my personal views. No more ‘fundy-bashing’.

Please leave comments to let me know you’re out there. Have fun!
