The Jesus Proof


You know, I’m not highly vested on either side of the existence of an historical Jesus Christ. I actually think the character is mostly good and useful, up to the whole living dead thing.

While I’ve seen a small number of huggable zombies in movies, christianity’s creation of a zombie god myth as the son of a magical god is far too irrational to entertain as realistic.

Not wishing to provoke the ire of believers, I’ve awaited the absolute truth of the hard evidence of a small number of little known scholars to announce proof that an historical Jesus Christ is nothing more than a wispy shadow of an early zombie character.

Now before the heads of any god fearing christians explode at the irrationality of non-belief, allow me this. You guys created (oops) “bible science”, “creation science”, and a 6,000 year old universe pooped into existence by magic. I get to play with Zombie Jesus.

Did the historical Jesus exist? A growing number of scholars don’t think so

The Real Danger Of Belief


In the following piece on Patheos you can read the story of an elected official ejecting a citizen from a public meeting for that person’s failure to participate in prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.

Florida Mayor Kicks Atheist Out of City Commission Meeting After He Doesn’t Stand for the Invocation or Pledge

The quoted exchange (partial) gives you a feel for the nature of the event, and provides sufficient basis for my concern. Religion cannot exist without control, and that control inevitably leads to abuse. This story described but one form.

Religion cannot coexist with rational, humanitarian processes. At some point religion’s requirement for power and control surfaces to ill effect. In particular, religion and government are incompatible.

At yesterday’s meeting of the Winter Garden City Commissioners (in Florida), Mayor John Rees announced that they would begin with an invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance, as many government meetings do, and asked everyone to stand up.

John Thoreau, an atheist, remained seated. Normally, that would be irrelevant since he has every right to do that, but Rees had other ideas.

As the first syllable of the invocation was uttered, Rees told everyone to hold up because Thoreau was still sitting down…

An Accused Flasher Is Claiming Innocence On Grounds That His Penis Is Too Small


Awh, hell. That’s just too funny.

UPROXX

A 54-year-old delivery man in Germany known as Herbert O., due to the fact that the court has not released his full name, has been accused of delivering an — ahem — unwanted package to a teenage girl. The girl and her mother reported to police that the man had approached their house with his bratwurst (I’m so sorry) hanging out of his unzipped pants on full display, however the man claims that’s impossible due to the fact that his penis is too small to even be able to accomplish such a feat.

The man’s poor, probably extremely sexually unsatisfied wife has even backed him up, so now the court has ordered an official penis measuring.

“I’m sorry, darling, but your penis is too short to hang out of your trousers,” she told the local court in the town of Leer in East Frisia (Lower Saxony). Confronted with this conflicting…

Doin’ It Christian Style: Demon Entered Through Sex


This is wrong on so many levels. The video itself is unsurprising, typical, and boring. The possessed woman was unemployed for 6.5 years, loves sex, and claims much anger.

Oh, the demon that entered through sex is the cause. Condom, STD, birth control jokes anyone?

Of course, that isn’t pitiful enough, but this might be. Put on your favorite full face helmet, Google the phrase “sexually transmitted demons”, start head slapping.
