Gods Fault?

Today we'll be broaching a topic that has been driving me insane for years. Like an scratch you just can't itch. I am talking of course about these people who praise god , Jesus, Allah, Buddha or what not for saving them from some calamity.

Virtually every natural or unnatural disaster you hear the survivors talking about how so and so saved them. See the Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, Sago Mine blast for references of said behavior I am far too lazy to dig up meaningless praise to a nonexistent creator

Here's a little news flash for these morons. If their deity of choice is responsible for saving them one can also safely surmise that their deity of choice was responsible for them being in peril in the first place and for their loved ones dying. God of love, peace, harmony or whatever? I think not If anything try god of ambivalence or indifference. Chew on that one.

How to pray in Space

So this morning I wake up to see this article on Malaysia joining the world in space by sending an astronaut up with the Russians.
Mohammed to visit spacial Teapot

Now maybe I am just simple but one would think that astronauts Muslim or not would have much bigger concerns than how to pray. Like maybe not screwing up? This whole "issue" seems a contrivance on the part of the politicians in this case to get brownie points with a religious sect of society kind of like shooting fish in a barrel. Not being an expert on Islam I can't say this for sure but I would have to imagine that there is some leeway offered for extraordinary situations. For example If Muslims were in a war would they be required to stop fighting and pray, my guess is no but I'd have to defer to any Muslim scholars on this.

Now aside from that we have this other moron who wakes up one morning and thinks "Hey what astronauts need is a program that will tell them when to pray and which way to face". I'd be curious to know how many Muslims there are who would require this software. I've got to imagine that the number is low , like maybe greater than zero but less than two?

So the big question is not so how is he going to make this software more popular, it should be why is no one mocking this idiot? This is the problem with religious tolerance taken to the current extreme it promotes cowardly journalism where this actually becomes a new item instead of some half baked comedian doing standup.

A passive non theist becomes an atheist

After many years of using a live and let live policy with regards to deists it has been made clear lately that whether we like it or not there is a war on thought. Most recently we have seen attacks on Science, free press and human rights in general, by people claiming to do one god or anothers bidding.

Recently I came across a gem by one of these mindless drones that irked me beyond belief. I speak of course about the infallible(read unemployable) Kirk Cameron speaking about evolution, against it more accurately. Now for the one person who doesn't know this he found Jesus and became an evangelical Christian. This rant is best saved for another day but at what point does a celebrity think that they are an expert on anything?

Anyhow after watching this crap which was a colossal waste of time I was pissed , first because it was 30 minutes of my life gone but secondly because they are so full of shit. So much fecal matter and so little time to go over it suffice to say elephants don't often pass turds that big watch it if you are interested ask Dr Google about Kirk Cameron The Evolution Zone . Of course they have extra indoctrination material they'll sell to the sheep after the show but one thing in particular caught my eye. "Questions for Evolutionists by Kent Hovind" and that is when it occurred to me that the reason we seem to be losing this fight is that we don't have our own talking points.

So lets start this off with Questions for creationists

Explain what a scientific theory is.

What is your alternate theory how do you propose to test this?

Explain resistant strains of bacteria.

There are at least three different versions of the eye, Did the creator create an imperfect eye twice prior to the proper one? Explain in detail

For the biblical creationists: Which version of genesis are you using? For that matter which bible are you using? Explain why each of these is more valid than the other options

Fossils are found in geological stratas ranging from the more complex(and recent) deposits on top and the less complex much lower. Obviously this is a hoax, why haven't we found a rabbit in the Precambrian deposits?

Explain all the laws of thermodynamics then explain (with a straight face) how evolution violates these.

What use is Pseudo DNA ? Why would this exist out of the context of evolution?

well that is it for now.
