Neil deGrasse Tyson: If intelligent design is real, what about Stupid Design.

Another area of fuzzy thinking out there is the movement called Intelligent Design.
It asserts that some things are too marvellous or too intricate to explain.
The contention is that these things defy common scientific accounts for cause and effect,
and so they’re ascribed to an intelligent, purposeful designer. […]
So let’s start a movement called Stupid Design, and we’ll see where that takes us.
For example, what’s going on with your appendix?
It’s much better at killing you than it is at anything else.
That’s definitely a stupid design.
What about your pinky toenail?
You can barely put nail polish on it; there’s no real estate there.
How about bad breath, or the fact that you breathe and drink through the same hole in your body,
causing some fraction of us to choke to death every year?
And here’s my last one. Ready?
Down there between our legs, it’s like an entertainment complex in the middle of a sewage system.

Who designed that?

Hermione. She gets it.

“… what about the stone, Mr Lovegood? The thing you call the Resurrection Stone?”
“What of it?”
“Well, how can that be real?”
“Prove that it is not,” said Xenophilius.
Hermione looked outraged.
“But that’s – I’m sorry, but that’s completely ridiculous! How can I possibly prove it doesn’t exist? Do you expect me to get hold of -of all the pebbles in the world and test them? I mean, you could claim that anything’s real if the only basis for believing in it is that nobody’s proved it doesn’t exist!”

Obama on abortion

Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns into universal rather than religion-specific values… it requires that their proposals be subject to argument and amenable to reason.

Now I may be opposed to abortion for religious reasons, to take on example, but if I seek to pass a law banning the practice I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church or evoke God’s will. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all.

Why is Santorum so against contraception? Because there’s a line in Genesis about not spilling your seed. A random brainfart from some desert dweller 3000 years ago, before people knew about germs or atoms or round planets, and it gets written down and passed down and in 2012 people like Rick Santorum are still too R-word to see that, and that’s why some woman in Akron, Ohio might not get birth control.

What Would Jesus Do?

slickricky69 @jessicaahlquist This is an example of how ignorant your are. Wishing bad things upon doesn’t constitite threatening you. Fat pig.
slickricky69 @jessicaahlquist It’ll be a glorious day when I read your obituary you worthless piece of shit.
jessicaahlquist @slickricky69 I know the police will be thrilled to hear this one, creep.
slickricky69 @jessicaahlquist I hope this 16yo attention whore gets gang raped by a pack of thugs and has her fucking throat cut afterwards….

Would he make death threats to Jessica Ahlquist?

I suspect he would:

Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones. KJV Psalm 137:9

Christian apologists will say that this person isn’t a true Christian. I think they are following their religion perfectly.

All these fucking asshole religious people say it’s a choice. ‘Homosexuality is a choice. That is a choice people make to engage in this… deliciously decadent, sinful behavior in [their g]od’s eyes. The get together with their hot oil rubdowns and whatnots. It’s sinful!’

It’s genetics; it’s not a choice. There’s no fucking sixteen-year-old, heterosexual boy confused, socially awkward, acne-scarred kid sitting around in his bedroom going, ‘Guys… everyone hates me. The girls I like don’t like me… and… um… I don’t know what to do. the thought of having sex with another man is physically repellent to me… but you know, maybe it’s time I invited even more nonstop harassment into my life.’

Yeah that’ll be fun. Things have been going so easy why don’t I just introduce the concept of getting the shit kicked out of me for no good reason by a bunch of fucking retards. Yeah, that’s good. That’s a fun ‘choice’ to make. that’s a ‘choice’ a lot of people are making. No, it’s genetics.

Penn Jillette – Read the Bible

TAke some time and put the Bible on you Summer reading list. Try and stick with it cover to cover. Not because it teaches history, we’ve shown you it doesn’t. Read it because you’ll see for yourself what the Bible is all about. It sure isn’t great literature. If it were published as fiction, no reviewer would give it a passing grade. There are some vivid scenes and some quotable phrases, but there’s no plot, no structure, there’s a tremendous amount of filler, and the characters are painfully one-dimensional. Whatever you do, don’t read the Bible for a moral code: it advocates prejudice, cruelty, superstition, and murder. Read it because we need more atheists, and nothing will get you there faster than reading the damn Bible. Penn Jillette

Penn Jillette

There is no god, and that’s the simple truth. If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someon would find a way to figure it all out again.
