The Bible - an extended look at the new mini-series
1. the world needs another mini-series about the Bible like it needs another religion… which is to say, not.
2. cool British accent, though, Jesus…. good work. (h/t azspot)
3. I understand why the stars of Shark Tank are shilling for this piece of ridiculousness (hint: same producers, new Christian Mark Burnett, i.e. job security, i.e. it’s Survivor: Jerusalem! ), but it’s super lame to see. Sorry I’m not sorry.
If I convert it’s because it’s better that a believer dies than that an atheist does.
a macabre joke from Hitch, in Christopher Hitchens’ Mortality: The “unpublished jottings” of the late, great writer and thinker.
For the unaware, tellthetruthalready is a pathetic (and relatively new, I believe) troll here on tumblr.
I remember the good ol’ days here, when the superstitious and fundamentalist among us joined forces in their passionate but relatively good-natured protestations regarding all things eternal, philosophical, reasonable.
Now we’re left with this dreck. And horrible photoshop, to boot.
Anyway… Hitler had plenty else to say… such as…
“My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter.”
… which is from a speech he gave in nineteen-twen… oh, never mind… pshaw… facts. I sometimes forget when encountering religious zealots that you guys are experts at selectively quoting portions of particular documents from antiquity.
Ooh! Ooh! Here’s another from that adorable li’l Adolf :
“We are determined… to fulfill as a national government the task which has been given to us, swearing fidelity only to God, our conscience, and our Volk… It will take Christianity, as the basis of our collective morality, and the family as the nucleus of our Volk and state, under its firm protection… May God Almighty take our work into his grace, give true form to our will, bless our insight, and endow us with the trust of our Volk.”
Give it a rest, tellthetruthalready, and let the grown-ups carry on with some semblance of reasonable disagreement and intelligent discourse, free from the ridiculous and childish nature of your inept bashing of those of us who engage in a serious pursuit of Truth.
El Peligroso is a name my students gave me. It means “The Dangerous One”. I’ve shut up rooms filled with Mensa members. I’ve bested Mormans in Utah by myself. I’d make you piss your underoos and your sheets would be stained yellow until you were an old lady. Atheist are the easiest people to prove wrong. Your philosophy is the philosophy of the Nazis. I didn’t know you agreed with killing 6 million Jews. I differ from you in so many ways because I really don’t care what you think. You don’t really even have any thoughts of your own. Grow up and stop sucking at the teat of people you couldn’t even match stupidity with. I’m a way better atheist and I’m a Christian.
On one side is an Inca stone. A stone carved in the Inca Empire in the 13th Century. Notice the circular patterns on the dinosaur. The other picture is of actual dinosaur skin. Notice the same circular patterns on the skin. Atheist evolutionist cannot explain, intelligently, how anyone in the 13th Century could have seen dinosaurs. Basis evolutionary theory says, Man and dinosaur didn’t live at the same time, or contemporaneously . This is just more evidence that destroys the “Theory” of evolution. This observational evidence is irrefutable.
Dinosaurs as described in the book of Job:
King James Version (KJV)
15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.
18 His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.
20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.
21 He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.
22 The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.
23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.
24 He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.
Man and Dinosaurs lived contemporaneously.

Every account of a higher power that I’ve seen described, of all religions that I’ve seen, include many statements with regard to the benevolence of that power. When I look at the universe and all the ways the universe wants to kill us, I find it hard to reconcile that with statements of beneficence.
