The father, the son, and the holy crap, they cannot be serious.


Do NOT Turn Jesus On.

Originally uploaded by sepultura

Truth be told I’m a little bit of a Jesus freak. I think being raised without religion made me perversely fascinated by the whole thing: the folklore, the bizarre subcultures, the everyday hypocrisies. Currently on my bedside radiator is The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, which picks apart the argument for a higher being bit by hilarious bit. My favorite part so far are the logical proofs for god’s existence borrowed from Godlessgeeks.com. A few gems:

ARGUMENT FROM EXODUS
(1) If the Exodus story has any basis in historical fact, then God exists.
(2) Some guy found some chariot wheels at the bottom of the Red Sea.
(3) There is absolutely no other way that chariots could get to the bottom of the Red Sea.
(4) This means the Exodus story is true.
(5) Therefore, God exists.

ARGUMENT FROM INCOMPLETE DEVASTATION
(1) A plane crashed killing 143 passengers and crew.
(2) But one child survived with only third-degree burns.
(3) Therefore, God exists.

ARGUMENT FROM FEAR
(1) If there is no God then we’re all going to not exist after we die.
(2) I’m afraid of that.
(3) Therefore, God exists.

ARGUMENT FROM SHEER WILL
(1) I DO believe in God! I DO believe in God! I do I do I do I DO believe in God!
(2) Therefore, God exists.

ARGUMENT FROM EUROPEAN HISTORY
(1) Many prominent thinkers in pre-modern Europe believed in God.
(2) Let’s just forget about the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
(3) Therefore, God exists.

ARGUMENT FROM INCOHERENT BABBLE
(1) See that person spazzing on the church floor babbling incoherently?
(2) That’s how infinite wisdom reveals itself.
(3) Therefore, God exists.

Oooh the list just goes on and on.

Clear conscience, for just 5 bucks a fuck.

Sassy little satirical film out of the UK that compares carbon offsetting to offsetting the damages wrought by cheating on your partner.

From CheatNeutral.com:

Q: Can I offset all my cheating?

A: First you should look at ways of reducing your cheating. Once you’ve done this you can use Cheatneutral to offset the remaining, unavoidable cheating.

Au revoir, Saint Laurent.
