  Atheists and their toast

What, they didn't find anything? Not even butter?

Last week I found nooks and crannies in my English muffin.

Cthulhu Tract | By Fred Van Lente and Steve Ellis

Saw this guy at Just for Laughs in Montreal last week. It was pretty fantastic. Plus, this guy could be the next Jack Sparrow if Johnny Depp were hit by a car or something.

  Teaching the controversy

... about M. Night Shyamalanâ..s The Happening and Lady in the Water. Here are two gems:

Shymalan has written a story wherein a writer is prophesized to be so brilliant, his prose so spectacular, that it will save the world. Shyamalan then proceeded to cast himself in the role of the messianic writer. There has ever been a more ridiculously self-fellating casting decision in the history of film. Itâ..s as if Shyamalan said to himself, â..Hmmâ.¦ whatâ..s the best way to get the audience to tell me to go fuck myself?â.

And:

... Wahlberg has the misfortune of having more screen time than anyone else in a film where the director clearly told the actors â..Okay, now for this scene, I want you to be as terrible as you possibly can. I mean, like career-destroyingly bad.â. It doesnâ..t help that Wahlberg is playing a high school science teacher named Elliot and manages to come across as so empty-headed and clueless that he couldn't work a pencil-sharpener, much less bunsen burner.

About half of these are funny. The other half make no sense.

There are also some "interactive stories" on the site. Check those out. It's a neat concept.

  A bad tattoo idea

I have to admit it -- this is why I haven't gotten a tattoo with any kind of Asian characters in it.

Swallowable Camera-in-a-pill

Rob: If a colonoscopy would be simply too much for the fragile rose of your rectum, consider swallowing a minuscule tract-exploring camera-in-a-pill. Manufactured by Micron Technology of Boise, Idaho, these tiny little buggers cost only $300 and contain a similarly small CMOS sensor, which snaps a picture every few seconds as it quests through your dark dungeons.

Originally introduced in 2001, it's won an award for the "non-invasive direct visualization of the entire small intestine." Did you know they gave out awards for that? Now you do.

Joel: I'm not sure you swallow pills exactly the same way I do.

  Bad Tattoos

Oh, don't get me wrong; some of them are quite funny. But maybe that's not what the people had in mind when they had them done. Everything from corporate logos to animals with bellybutton anuses.

Sophmoric and full of fallacies, the Atheism article on Conservapedia has been declared (by Conservapedia, of course) the "article of the year". I'm not sure what it means, especially since we're only part way through the year, but if better articles aren't planned, it's not going to be a very good year for them.

RationalWiki has made a companion article which (often humourously) refutes the ad hominem attacks and other fallacies of the Conservapedia article.

My favourite question answered is this one:

Q. What God or gods does the atheist deny?

A. One more than the Christian does.

Atheism and Immoral Views

In regards to atheism and morality, the Barna Group also found that those who hold to the worldviews of atheism or agnosticism in America were more likely, than theists in America, to look upon the following behaviors as morally acceptable: illegal drug use; excessive drinking; sexual relationships outside of marriage; abortion; cohabitating with someone of opposite sex outside of marriage; obscene language; gambling; pornography and obscene sexual behavior; and engaging in homosexuality/bisexuality. [30]

Response to Atheism and Immoral Views

The alleged immorality of many of the activities listed is debatable - Illegal drug use is illegal by definition, but that doesn't make it immoral, The same with excessive drinking - alcoholism is considered a disease by the medical community. Sexual relationships outside of marriage are not necessarily immoral. Abortion is morally difficult for some, but not for all. Cohabitating with someone of opposite sex outside of marriage is not immoral to many if not most people in this day and age. Obscene language, well, shucks, darn gee willikers, it could be in poor taste sometimes, but that does not make it immoral. Gambling: like at church bingo? Pornography and obscene sexual behavior are left open and undefined, and what counts as sexual immorality for one may be a harmless kink for another as long as it involves consenting adults. Engaging in homosexuality/bisexuality - nothing immoral about that.

Atheism and Miracles

In regards to atheism and miracles, modern scholars are divided on the issue of whether or not David Hume was an atheist.[33] With that caveat in mind, Hume is well known for arguing that it is always more probable that the testimony of a miracle is false than that the miracle occurred.[34] Christian apologists William Lane Craig, Norman Geisler, C.S. Lewis, JP Holding, and others have shown the inadequacy and unreasonableness of Hume's position regarding miracles.

Response to Atheism and Miracles

Atheists don't believe in miracles (at least, not as anything more than a metaphor for a greatly fortuitous coincidence). The point of this particular section is lost on me, personally. The assertion that disbelief in miracles is absurd because a sophomoric apologist like C. S. Lewis says so is more absurd than the assertion it is trying to refute. The atheist world view, unlike the fundamentalist Christian world view, is built on facts. Science does not accept eyewitness accounts, for good reasons, and miracles are never more than eyewitness accounts.
