On the Plus Side, They Aren't Actually Burning Buildings

... except perhaps a few of "those" churches in the South. On the other hand, they do vote, which is at least as devistating:

"DURING THE TIME WHEN ISRAEL - GOD'S CHOOSEN PEOPLE - were backslidden, HE [GOD] raised up Wicked Rullers, TO CHASTEN HIS OWN! SO it is today! God has given us a respite, with BUSH - but remember the Agenda of the ENEMY! HILLARY CLINTON - Hopes to be the Next President of the USA! UNLESS - CHRISTIANS - CRY OUT IN REPENTANCE FOR OUR SINS, AND FAILURE TO OBEY GOD, She will BE IT!"

Which Superhero Are You?


I was surprised at the answer I got although I tried to answer honestly. Given the type of hero I play well in City of Heros, I expected to get "The Flash".

Your results:
You are Superman
Iron Man
The Flash
Green Lantern
Wonder Woman
You are mild-mannered, good,
strong and you love to help others.

Note to Atheists: Morality Comes Only From God, Stop Acting Moral!

A guy who missed the point of atheism:

One of my friends told me the other night that he had stopped to help a stranded motorist.
"Why would you do that?" I asked.
"Because it was the right thing to do. She needed help."
"But," I protested, "that doesn't make any sense. You wasted your time and efforts on a complete stranger, and for what? You got nothing out of it. You should have kept right on driving."
He gave me a puzzled look.
What I meant to say is that God is the basis for good and evil, and once you reject him and his rules, you're left with nothing but self-serving and self-preservation. In short, you're left with being your own god.

No. Atheists merely reject the idea that morality must be imposed by a mythical figure, we do not reject the idea that people must have morality for society to work. In fact, that’s the point. If you're only following a moral code because you're afraid you'll get caught by god (or more terrestrial authorities), while I'm glad your following the rules, don't expect me to respect you. What you're saying is that you are fundamentally untrustworthy without fear of punishment. Further, you probably believe that everyone else is the same way. Hence, god is needed everywhere, to watch all the time, to keep folks on the right path.
I believe people are capable of more, the right and wrong can be taught as core values and that fear of god is superfluous. I try to live up to my highest ideals and while I don't always succeed, I don’t think I fail more than the faithful, and I know that the consequences are mine to bear.

Not As Bad as the Hasselhoff Recursion

But almost, almost as bad.

An Accidental Nuke

I haven't worked this out, or the possible yeild, but it's at least remotely possible.


I finally got an email asking me to transfer millions out of Zimbabwe. Soon all of Africa will by under My control! (note, it came with the following spacing. One big block of text)
