Matt Damon is a lucky SOB

What better to break my blogging hiatus with than a clip that has had me belly-laughing like a belly-laughing fool.

I’m surprised…

According to this quiz:

You know the Bible 82%!


Wow! You are truly a student of the Bible! Some of the questions were difficult, but they didn’t slow you down! You know the books, the characters, the events . . . Very impressive!

And, as I have said before, I’m a hardcore atheist.

Nearly 20 years ago, after being goaded into it by some fundies I used to like arguing with, I read the Bible (King James version). Cover to cover.

It was the most grueling, uninteresting, unbelievable chore I have ever voluntarily endured. Some people see great poetry, some see the it as the ultimate form of the English language. I just found it to be an impenetrable mess of deliberately-obfuscated language designed to give the impression of great insight while in fact telling mediocre stories that a seven year old would find hard to swallow (much like Jonah’s fish).

Amazingly enough (indeed it surprised the fundies) I came out the other side as much of an atheist as I was before I started, if not slightly more contemptuous of those who actually believe that the guff presented as literally true.

I have also skimmed the Quran (like with the Bible, nothing there was remotely believable), and glanced at the Bhagavad Gita; as works of literary history they are valuable, but as works of history they are flawed at the very best.

Show me a quiz about football, however, and the score would be in single digits…

Blair bitch-slapped by Carter – The world is ending!

Former president Jimmy Carter has said that our beloathed (sorry, beloved) leader Tony Blair is basically GW Bush’s puppet.

As American Presidents go, Carter wasn't what you’d call a sabre-rattler, but I absolutely agree with what he says about Phoney Tony. Bush has certainly done enough to ensure that the USA is about as popular as a McRib in a mosque, and Blair in his toady role made sure he could do everything he could to help.

Hard to believe that Blair used to campaign for unilateral nuclear disarmament…

6-year old traumatised by Barney’s penis

I really want to think that this is a joke, but I’m resigned to the fact that it isn’t. Some guy took his family for food and when they left saw a sign that some scamp had changed to read “Barney’s penis”.

As the guy himself said:

“Since then, she has not stopped mentioning Barney’s p***s. This has shaken the bedrock of our family. I made an emergency call to our church’s pastor about this bombshell in my daughter’s life and he is unsure how it will affect her future.”

Please note, the daughter isn’t traumatised in any way – her father, however, is a complete moron.

God bless us, every one… AGHHH!

Praying woman struck by lightning 

I'm glad that the woman survived, but as a secular humanist atheist, I found the whole idea highly amusing.

She says she's blessed to be alive – personally I'd be highly pissed off that my god had decided to smite me from on high. Perhaps from now on she should pray to Thor, just to be safe, after all, Pascal's Wager becomes less abstract when you're having thunderbolts thrown at you!
