If you're going to choose a mythical construct to worship, don't choose some ineffectual pussy man.

Choose a robot with missiles the size of trucks. Better be safe than sorry, right?

Tetris USSR History

I'll have to have my brother evaluate the truthiness of this description. I can vouch for the truthiness of its tendency to lodge itself in your brain, and emerge at odd times.

Richard Dawkins Demonstrates Laryngeal Nerve of the Giraffe

Dailymotion - Richard Dawkins Demonstrates Laryngeal Nerve of the Giraffe - a Tech & Science video

Never knew this about the laryngeal nerve, absolutely gorgeous example of the way that gradual change is blind. As Professor Dawkins stated, designers have foresight. Designers have planning and can change their process so long as the black box's input and output remain the same.

Evolution has no such advantage, and yet it has produced the myriad forms of complex life on earth today. Trial, error, natural selection and a few billion years of time can do wonders for replicators!


They see me rollin'.
They hatin
Patrolin and tryina catch me skatin' dirty!

Definitely the best analogy I've seen all day. At least the bible isn't legally binding!

A kid talks about abortion

His argument is profound, if not actually verbally articulated. The unintentional subtext here is why some fetuses should not be allowed to come to full term development; because they will inevitably sustain severe retardation of their neurological development due to environmental factors.

"I really hate democrats" is a phrase which I, without further evidence, do not believe probable to have originated from this young man's own mind. This video is an excellent example of the way that young humans are open to indoctrination, the beneficial evolutionary trait that religion has co-opted for its own benefit.

The emotional appeals, the inflection all reek of a preacher style sermon given to an already-believing crew of sheep.

P.S. I love that analogy for christians, especially because they claim it for themselves so often and well. Baaaaa!
