I can’t believe that I haven’t seen this video yet! Just add it to my list of great “bullshit” videos I have posted on the site! Enjoy!
Penn & Teller Creationism Bullshit
I have always assumed that Penn Jillette smoked weed. I don’t know why, but the dude looks like many a friend in the past that made it a lifestyle! Even though he says that he has never smoked pot, he makes a passioned case to stop throwing people in prison for doing drugs. It is crazy in my opinion too! He just says it better than I do, so here it is for you to watch!!
Here we go again! Penn & Teller have done up a new video all about the new fad pushed by Al Gore. Carbon credits. I have never bought into this. And, apparently neither do Penn & Teller. Give yourself around 30 minutes and watch all 3 episodes. Enjoy!
You can now stop feeling so guilty, and quit buying all those useless carbon credits! You are just making someone else rich…
And while you are at it, here is a link to my article on why recycling is not so good for the environment!
I am so sick of the yearly Christian advertising. You know the ones. “Jesus is the reason for the season”,”Don’t take Christ out of Christmas”,etc…So I am delighted that some atheist groups have put up some funds for some Godless ads! The bus picture is from the article below.

Doing some image searches, I came up with some more good ones. I love the ex-wizard one! How exactly does one become an ex-transsexual? Once a wizard, always a wizard I say.
Back on July 6th, I wrote a letter to Dr. David Suzuki about my opinions on recycling.(here is the link.). I just got the response!
I was a little disappointed that he wasn’t the one to respond, but I really didn’t think I would get ANY response. Here is the e-mail word for word, for your enjoyment!
Looks like we are on the same page. The Foundation supports reducing and reusing most strongly, and recycling as a lesser alternative for the reasons you outlined below (transportation costs and emissions, chemical leaching…). Certainly, there are better recycling operations than others, but generally we are aiming for a society that is not a consumer/throw away one, but one that demands producers to consider product lifecycles (for more, google “cradle to grave or cradle to cradle lifecycle”) and resourcefully and creatively reuses the goods it has. For more on this, please see the Nature Challenge website (http://www.davidsuzuki.org/NatureChallenge/) to learn more about other ways to reduce and reuse.
Thanks for writing and sharing your efforts and concerns.

I have added a link to the wikipedia article on “cradle to grave or cradle to cradle lifecycle” that Rebecca talks about. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_cycle_assessment
So, do you still not believe me that recycling is not all it is cracked up to be? I should explain that there is some recycling that does seem to be better than others. Instead of going over it all, here is the Penn and Teller video for you again. Spread the word!
I was shocked to learn today that recycling is crap!!! I know, I didn’t believe it at first, but after watching “Recycling is Bullshit”, I was convinced.
I guess the moral of the story is, Reduce, Reuse it if possible, and throw the rest away in the garbage. It is better than the “process” of recycling. Have you ever wondered where all that recycling goes? Apparently to China, where 40% of it is thrown away or burnt. The rest is processed with harsh chemical processes to make polar fleece, etc… And go start a compost. Try to buy things that aren’t wrapped up in plastic crap. Oh, the exception to the rule may be aluminum. But even that is being questioned.
I should have known that it was a money making machine! I guess my corporate radar needs some tweaking…
I am fortunate to live in a place where the water is clean, and tastes great. Most of the world is not so lucky. And a small group of people are very lucky, and drink the best water on the planet.
Linkinn – Top 5 Glasses of Water on the Planet:
You could always get people to ban di-hydrogen monoxide(H2O). A lesson learned to not sign petitions until you are educated on the real intent, and to not follow the crowd “just because”.
Penn and Teller are also talking about how crappy bottled water can be. Here they are on Youtube…again.
A couple has IMHO killed their daughter, and should be charged with manslaughter. Their daughter got ill a month ago, and instead of going to a doctor to receive help for a preventable form of diabetes, they prayed…WTF! THey also have a couple of other children, and the story states that the police are NOT taking them away. What is wrong with these people?
