Atheist Defense Network

This group is devoted to ending anti-atheist bigotry by (1) finding it and labeling it bigotry, (2) mobilizing atheists to express opposition, and (3) educating others about the costs of anti-atheist bigotry.” [But note, they are so rational and open minded that you have to be a member to comment on their blog site.]  😉  

And how do they go about defending atheists? By attacking the beliefs of Christians, and calling them “irrational” and “bigots.”  Here, some of their words, not mine:  We bother because “the stench of religious dogma can be countered, in some small measure, by the fresh air of reason.”  “WILL NOT let you “believers” contaminate the entire world with your stupid, unreasoning, blind, dogmas and continue to lead us into war after war against those of other dogmas.”  [Wait, what? The freakin commies and Muslim extremists are the only people I know that are starting wars. I thought you morons were supposed to be the “rationalists.” But I digress.]

More from our poor, abused atheists:   “Religion is not a naturalistic worldview, as it is based on superstition, deities and other irrational objects.”  [Not sure, but I don’t think attacking a person’s religious beliefs is in Mr. Carnegies book, “How to win friends and influence people.”  No WONDER people hate ’em!] 

“Religion reinforces lazy thinking by lecturing us that we already have all the answers, and thus crushing many a young mind’s wonder and imagination.”  [Oh, gee, calling people names and making up shit about them, didn’t that go out in what, like the eighth grade?]

“Religion is irrational as it is not based on any form of evidence whatsover, and is therefore anti-scientific.”  [Ummm. So is the irrational belief that everything on earth, everything about life, and the universe is so perfectly ordered just by chance. And so is the belief that life spontaneously evolved from the primordial ooze eons ago.]

“Religion spreads fear, ignorance and prejudice.”  [Nice. NOW I see what the problem is. You are a stupid pig who goes around insulting people. Perhaps if you would not be such utter pricks going around insulting people, you wouldn’t need your little “Atheist Defense Network”, eh? Problem solved.]

Mother Jones promoting latest global warming lunacy: “TEACH YOUR CHILDREN TO HOLD THEIR BREATH!”

The premise of this latest article is that we humans don’t need to breathe as often as we do.  When we exhale, we emit that dreaded poison carbon dioxide, or CO2.  And as we know, the EPA is going to regulate CO2 because it is a “greenhouse gas” which is killing our planet.  Mother Jones has hit upon a novel solution:  If we all, collectively, breathe less, we will exhale less CO2.  And if we emit less CO2, global warming will slow or cease, and we can all live happily ever after.

From Mother Jones: ….”It is well recognized that humans can train themselves to hold their breath.  David Blaine recently set a Guinness record by holding his breath for over 17 minutes in front of a live audience on the Oprah Winfrey Show. ‘An average person in good health can hold his breath for about two minutes, but with even small amounts of practice it is possible to increase that time dramatically. “The body can be trained,” explains Dr. Ralph Potkin, a pulmonary specialist who worked with Blaine in the weeks leading up to his recent feat.”

“People exhale carbon dioxide (the rate is approximately 1 kg per day or 2.3 lbs per day, and it depends strongly on the person’s activity level).  If there are approximately 6.8 billion humans on the earth, collectively they would emit 6.8 billion kg per day, or 6.8 million metric tons per day. In a 365 day year, humans would produce 2.482 billion tons from breathing.  This is killing our planet!”

….”Our solution? The government should institute the following steps immediately.  First, force all heavy physical exertion activities to cease (or, alternatively, tax such activities).  No more jogging, football, soccer, etc.  Walking is all the exertion any human needs.  Second, institute mandatory training of all citizens to learn how to hold their breath.  Perhaps have collective periods of time set aside to all hold our breath at the same time, perhaps the beginning of every hour. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if worldwide all humans ceased breathing at once, for as long as possible?  …And finally, we need to cease having children, and let the old people die….”  Go read the entire whacky article at Mother Jones.

A cause of global warming?

Asphalt growing up around thermometers.  Here’s  a look at one in Australia.  Again from Watts Up With That

inhomogeneities

The scientific word for the day is “inhomogeneities.”  In simple terms, it means the M fers   “scientists”–at one temperature reading station at least–have been cooking the books, lying to us, by telling us that global temperatures have been warming significantly in the past several decades when they really have not been. Read the latest at “Watts Up With That.” 

The black line shows how the “Scientists” just happened to adjust the raw data, always downward early in the century, and always upwards later, to make it appear that the world is warming at an alarming rate.

As Willis Eschenbach there at Watts Up says: “Yikes again, double yikes! What on earth justifies that adjustment? How can they do that? We have five different records covering Darwin from 1941 on. They all agree almost exactly. Why adjust them at all? They’ve just added a huge artificial totally imaginary trend to the last half of the raw data! Now it looks like the IPCC diagram in Figure 1, all right … but a six degree per century trend? And in the shape of a regular stepped pyramid climbing to heaven? What’s up with that?”

“Those, dear friends, are the clumsy fingerprints of someone messing with the data Egyptian style … they are indisputable evidence that the “homogenized” data has been changed to fit someone’s preconceptions about whether the earth is warming.”

Yikes warming has been cooked, merely that at one particular station it has.  This is reason enough to closely examine every station to see if the same shenanigans have been going on all around the world.

UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDERRRRR: Colonel Barfoot may fly the flag

From the Times-Dispatch: “The Sussex Square Homeowners Association Board has agreed to withdraw legal action previously announced for Friday, December 11, 2009 at 5:00 p.m.,” U.S. Sen. Mark Warner announced this evening shortly after 6.” 

Can you say “ABOUT DAMN TIME!!!”

And the evil law firm, and the evil lawyer representing the evil board of directors, had this to say: 

“I think this is about neighbors helping neighbors,” said Alexandra Bowen, a lawyer who until today was representing Sussex Square Services Inc., the homeowner association board. Bowen said she is no longer involved in the dispute.

THANK YOU 8 lb 6 oz Baby Jesus, for allowing morons to momentarily have the capacity to think as do normal human beings!!!
