Not Dwelling

Sometimes you just need to let things be.

Sal Cordova is apparently completely ignorant of the basic fundamentals of inheritance, has been trying to rewrite the laws of physics despite knowing nothing of electrodynamics (by his own admission), and wants to join the gang at Uncommonly Dense in dancing on Darwin's grave.

Everybody's favorite creationist neurosurgeon Michael Egnor has been trying to use what fMRI tells us about the function of the mind as an argument against connecting the mind to measures of brain function. (Luckily, Dr. Steven Novella is laying the appropriate smackdown.)

Over at Uncle Density, dacook is trying to suck the value out of his daughter's science project and replace it with his pseudoscience. (This one is just too sad for me to address... he obviously cares about his daughter and thinks he's helping, but he's crippling her education by indoctrinating her with intelligent design.)

And veteran link farmer Denyse O'Leary's response to a study showing that the religious landscape in America is changing, boiled down: "No it isn't! *folds arms petulantly*" I'd like to see the error bars on her complete lack of any evidence whatsoever to accompany her dismissal of the survey.

That's a whole lot of wrong. And it's got me a little down. But it's not worth losing sleep over, so I'm going to pass on the extensive commentary.

...Frack, it's already an hour past when I planned to be in bed.

I'm an Atheist and They allow moi to clean toilets, part time of course.....They wouldn't want moi to get cocky.

Well, well, well, (Now that’s a “Deep” subject) it appears that Ben Stein has a lill’ movie.

I have a wee film/research too but unlike Mr. Stein mine illuminates AND entertains in about five minutes and, A-N-D, it’s FREE!

Mr. Stein (BTW: moi’s film/research tells how the Jewish people REALLY came about) charges you for propaganda and I give the human race knowledge for free, ain’t I a moron? Perhaps.

And here is moi’s, officially ignored, film/research
into the origin of Christendom.

Since the film is
the awful facts it must be disregarded by those that tout
the beautiful untruths.

The Religious Authorities, and those that GAIN from there being religions [e.g., People in the “Business” of Atheism], always say NOT to view that which they DO want you to see and avert their eyes, and remain quite silent, about that which they hope you will not chance upon.

If there were a place, and there is, where intelligence that rises little higher than our human brain stems’ capacity WERE allowed Mr. Stein WOULD be found there, hence. . .check your local theater listings for Mr. Stein and murmuring mermaids and yammering yaks - talkin’ terrorists - pontificating puppies - babbling babes – enunciating elephants – answering ants – zinging zombies - replying Rambos a al lambos – and many more such “Levels,” though a basically base intellectual strata they t’were, ‘tis and t’will be.

However, Ben Stein is only doing exactly what moi tells people TO DO and that is,
suck-up to the prevailing mythology in the CULTure you happen to be surrounded by.
Hence, Ben Stein is flying first class and considering buying a private plane and moi ‘tis takin’ the bus and considering purchasing some meat, for WifeyWu, if’in moi can budget it in.

Stay on groovin’
(Ain’t ya glad moi didn’t alliterate from A to Z?)
