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

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.

DELIVERANCE from Demon that Entered Through Sex

In their article, Texas court rules against homeschoolers who expected rapture and stopped teaching kids, The Raw Story is reporting the Texas Court of Appeals Eighth District court ruling against the parents who removed their children from school, then failed to homeschool them as they were awaiting the rapture.

Referring to a relative,

Tracy overhead one of the McIntyre children tell a cousin that they did not need to do schoolwork because they were going to be raptured.

Mendoza filed truancy complaints against the McIntyres in 2007, and the couple filed suit for injunctive relief based on Texas Education Code, the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act (TRFRA), the Texas Constitution, and the United States Constitution.

I Love A Good Magic Trick


Sometimes you just gotta say something.

In A Deeper Look at If Evolution Is True, llamapacker puts the intellectually mere mortals among us on notice of the upcoming complexity of creation.

This is part of a very complicated discussion about creation.

I confess (well…) to deep anticipatory angst in advance at what I expected would be a severe intellectual thrashing.

I saw a link to something. I didn’t bother. I was still enthralled at the upcoming intellectually complex creation argument.

The evolutionary debate is complex on its own, but it is often further complicated by the use of a logical fallacy known as equivocation.

I am once again disappointed at yet another vacuous “argument” for creation. Thankfully, it was mercifully brief.

Science cannot be debated, countered, displaced, disproved, mitigated, obfuscated, or negated by magic.

The “argument”, wether purportedly complex or genuinely so, is nothing but a diversion. For honest believers, it permits compliance and provides cover from reality. For the self-serving, it provides a power base and income steam (it’s great for comedians, too). For others it’s a compulsion to which they must respond.

Well, I always thought magic was fun.
