Go to: James Randi's fiery takedown of psychic fraud

100meters's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by 100meters

Have always dug the Randi, ever since he gutted Uri Geller on Johnny Carson thirty years ago.

One wonders how many folks in that live audience, and viewers of this video, while nodding and smiling in total agreement with Randi's call for an end to this financial exploitation of the gullible and less-informed, just last Sunday gave 10% of their earnings to an organization (insert favorite denomination here) so that after they die, they will live forever on a pretty cloud with their old dog Spot?

I think Randi's "barely grazing" around the edges of this point is similar to those thoughtful first readers of Darwin way back when, who, putting the book down with a satisfied nod of agreement, stopped while going upstairs to bed, and suddenly thought "Wait a minute...if this is all true for every living and once-living species...then what about us? Gasp."

Go to: Get ready for conservative Bible

100meters's Avatar Jump to comment 31 by 100meters

Wow...or more properly, "Wow, I say verily unto you," this opens up all kinds of exciting possibilities, as in:

The Liberal's Bible..."And the masses were fed from just five loaves of whole-grain, union-made, low carbon footprint bread, and several dolphin-safe tuna."

The Slacker's Bible..."Dude, this stoning the chick thing is like, bogus!"

The Bible for the Timid..."And the non-believers shall eternally endure some really uncomfortable humidity, and occasionally step on some of those sharp walnut seed thingies."

This Conservapedia has GOT to be Poe ?!?!

Go to: Atheist clubs are springing up in American high schools, warns head of US Catholic bishops

Hmmm...let me see...

1) I have a book in my hand which has ALL the answers to EVERY question.
2) My beliefs are totally correct, and yours are completely in error.
3) I know this is true because so many believe it, and because I feel it in my heart.
4) I know exactly what the future holds, down to the last predicted iota.

But you Freethinkiers are SO self-righteous!!!

Gee, why did that fellow give me such a funny handshake a moment ago...and why am I suddenly thinking so clearly...hmmm.

Go to: High school marching band can't wear evolutionary T-shirts

100meters's Avatar Jump to comment 6 by 100meters

While this story is the very definition of "cringeworthy," let's be fair...maybe the school official's point is well-taken...after all, doesn't the doctrine of "Intelligent Band Design" tell us the Sun, Moon, and woodwinds were created on the fourth day, fishes and cymbals on the fifth, and birds and sheet music on the sixth?
Remember, it is only fair to "teach the controversy"....uh-oh, wait...I think I just found a transitional form between the bass viol and the violin.....shucks, this fossilized cello has now ruined everything, drat!
