5 Things you Must do to be a Good Creationist!

Well, it looks like a theme has started in the last few days. It’s another pick on the Creationists video, passed on from my friend Kiyoshi. He seems to be my data mining assistant…He spends hours using Stumbleupon, eyes strained, going blind, and unable to tear himself away from that damn button…Thank you…

Here is a nice vid laying out how to be a good creationist. From what I’ve read, and seen, it looks like the US is the global leader in demonstrating these traits! Keep up the good work. Not.

A picture to sum it all up…



Kiyoshi uses Stumbleupon and we all benefit!

My shy friend Kiyoshi has forwarded on these funny videos that he found using Stumbleupon. He is too shy to post them. Though both videos are not really related, I thought I would post them both for your viewing pleasure.

First up is Wii-Fit

And lastly, how to become an Atheist. The last line made me LOL!

If you haven’t used Stumbleupon yet, here is the link. It makes the Internet fun again!

Microsoft Makes a Fool of Themselves While Defending Return to DRM

I love listening to Microsoft’s lame comments and announcements. It is no wonder that Apple and Linux distros are making great headway in the PC market! I swore that this article on defending a return to DRM must have been posted by The Onion, or on April Fool’s Day.

Sadly for Microsoft, it is a reality that they are out of touch with the digital age…I love the first question and the immediate response! “Question: Why has Microsoft gone back to DRM when the vast majority of music services have ditched it?” “Answer: It’s a first step.” HAAAAAAAA!!!Good one…Click below for the remainder of this hilarious article.

To end the week, here are a couple of random pictures I found using Stumbleupon.





Sit back and think about the following

Sitting around on a Saturday using Stumbleupon, I have come across a cool site about logical paradoxes. I just love this kind of stuff! Things that make you go hmm. I like the one about the stone of course 😉

The Paradox of the Stone

God is all-powerful, or as theologians put it, “omnipotent”; there is nothing that he cannot do. This is part of the definition of “God”.
So can God create a stone that is so heavy that he cannot lift it? Either he can or he can’t.

If God can’t, then he isn’t all-powerful. If God can’t create a stone that he can’t lift, then there is something that he can’t do: create the stone.
If God can create a stone that is so heavy that he can’t lift it, though, then he also isn’t all-powerful. If God can create a stone that is so heavy that he can’t lift it, then there’s something that he can’t do: lift that stone.

There is, therefore, no way of answering the question above that preserves God’s omnipotence. If there is an omnipotent God, then he neither can nor can’t create a stone so heavy that he cannot lift it. This, though, is absurd; he must be either able or unable to perform this feat.
This is the paradox of omnipotence. Many critics of theism have used it to argue that the concept of omnipotence is self-contradictory, that there can be no omnipotent being, and so that God cannot exist.

I also finished up a good article on corruption and crime in Mexico, and the slippery slope of monitoring the public, and protecting privacy. A good read.

Random Pics on a Random Night.

So, I am sitting around listening to Rob Zombie, and repeatedly hitting the Stumbleupon button. What a loser…A least you benefit from all the cool pics I have come across…Enjoy.







Our first contest!! Read through for your chance to win!![edit]

I have had a couple of crappy days at work, and have been waiting for the week to end. So the healthy thing to do for me is start Stumbling to pass the time. I find the funniest things.

Much of what is on the Internet is crap, or even worse, pictures of crap…A year or two ago, I came across(or dare I say, stumbled across) the Firefox and IE plug-in Stumbleupon. I have written about it before, but most new visitors may miss some of my old tech writing. A good plug for using my search field on the site, and looking in the archives section.

Here are a couple of the newspaper clippings I found on one site.

Wouldn’t have found this without Stumbleupon! Check it out.

BTW, for the first person to tell me where the above quote originated from, I will mail you an early X-mas present. You must be in North America to win, as this site is non-profit, and I seriously don’t want to amass a big shipping bill. Sorry to all my international readers…

The prize is a good one. It is the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster!

Saturday Question: Why Can’t I Own a Canadian?

I forgot the open letter to Dr. Laura Schlessinger! It is hilarious. Too bad that the story ends with the letter. All too often, there is no response from the religious zealots as to the very serious nature of living by the word of the bible. Found it using Stumbleupon!

Here is the letter in full. The source of the article is at the bottom…

Why Can’t I Own a Canadian?
October 2002

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a east coast resident, which was posted on the Internet. It’s funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord – Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination – Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this?

Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? – Lev.24:10-16. Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.

Your devoted fan,

Note to Stumblers:

Some comments criticizing this piece indicate that it was “hijacked” from a West Wing episode. This is a chicken and egg argument in my opinion. I don’t really know which came first, and frankly don’t care. Below, for your enjoyment, is the clip in question.
