No wonder: some atheists’ minds are like skunk butts, according to Dr Coyne

May 30, 2011

Over at Planet of the Apes Ms. Faye Flam (!) (for real last name ?) on the archquestions of faith, science, mind and whatever. She interviewed atheists, religionists, scientists and sciantheists (atheiscientists?)-atheists that are scientists.

 On a league of its own, Dr. Coynes’  remarkable opinion: “Many biologists are not religious, and few see any evidence that the human mind is any less a product of evolution than anything else, said Chicago’s Coyne. Other animals have traits that set them apart, he said. A skunk has a special ability to squirt a caustic-smelling chemical from its anal glands. Our special thing, in contrast, is intelligence, he said, and it came about through the same mechanism as the skunk’s odoriferous defense.”

So? Well, the last sentence is debatable at worst, if not right down false. Intelligence: defined how? All creatures are “intelligent”. To assume identical mechanisms for the ‘evolution” of the skunks’ gland and the evolution of  “intelligence” (human) is gratuitous.

 So: I am happy that Coyne is happy to think that his mind and the skunks’ butt evolved supported by analogous mechanisms.

There you go lads: no wonder some have their heads up their arsses.

No cats in hell

May 9, 2011

A very hot, naked, beauty girlfriend, recently hurled to hell, texted me:

“No cats in hell. Stop. Cerberus doesnt let them in. Stop. Thats one scary motherfucking dog. Stop. Thats why he is there to begin with. Stop. PS 1: Bring some Buds when visiting, thirsty as hell (and Hawaian Tropic). Over” PS 2: tell other atheists not to bring the cats here. Send them to Purgatory.

Hitchens and the Jefferson wall (of separation)

May 8, 2011

In a letter to the Atheist Convention CH ends:

…”.. As the heirs of a secular revolution (sic), American atheists have a special responsibility to defend and uphold the Constitution that patrols the boundary between Church and State. This, too, is an honor and a privilege. Believe me when I say that I am present with you, even if not corporeally (and only metaphorically in spirit…) Resolve to build up Mr Jefferson’s wall of separation. And don’t keep the faith. Sincerely. Christopher Hitchens…”

To what Thomas Jefferson answers: The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”

(the betise of common)Common sense

April 21, 2011

So many crazies these days. Crazy blogs, crazy news, crazy Trump, crazy Qadaffi,  Hitchens venting against HIS royals (however, the emphasis should have been the expense, the glamour, the offense of such waste, not the moral character of the Windsors), crazy S&P ratings,  reversed by a crazy Dow surge, crazy WSJ promoting Hayek doctrine for Egypt as a means to introduce capitalist democracy (there is no longer communism in the world, at least practically), crazy evolutionary scientists arguing against….religionists, ….crazy..crazy..all around us. And in most cases these people hold high their sense of …..common sense. Everybody else is nuts except them. The “liberals” lack common sense often argue the non-liberals. and so on.

“Common sense is the most fairly distributed thing in the world, for each one thinks he is so well-endowed with it that even those who are hardest to satisfy in all other matters are not in the habit of desiring more of it than they already have.” Rene Descartes

SAN VALENTINe..tin tin

February 14, 2011

San Valentin’s celebration has slowly infiltrated the unconscious conscious of many, not here, obviously, but elsewhere. I have seen dirt misreable people in shanty towns all over central america exchanging valentin bs. Kinda ridiculous and very very tragic. Especially when considering that

There are 14 christian martyrs of that name…brrrr..

Seemingly somehow Chaucer invented this deal (according to some sauces).

San Valentin day massacre comes to mind. Epic.

I love to tick my atheists friends: why do you celebrate Valentin? No answer. Why dont Iranians celebrate San Valentin? Because it is outlawed. Seriously (There is a WSJ oped).
