Wow! This explains why women don’t have hairy chests and don’t run from that dirty, old book


Gotta love this graphic from Brad over at The Revival Generation, who uses his blog to cast an uncritical eye on faith and spirituality.

It’s very man-heavy, this Brad blog.

It’s very dude centric.

Grunt, grunt. Piss. Piss.

[Insert little cartoon character with his chest puffed out and his finger pointed into the air brazenly as he says] … Because that’s what the bible says about keeping women’s mouths shut

The Revival Generation is a loving place where you can learn to teach your sons how to avoid domestic violence by teaching them to be violent. Yeah, did you know teaching boys to wrestle will prevent them from bludgeoning their wives to death?

In his post, How to Grow a Man: Father’s edition, Brad writes:

Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends.

And later:

We want our boys to grow up big and strong and so we feed them right, get them involved in team sports and so on, but we don’t help them to know their own strength.  One thing that does this, especially in young children, is playful wrestling with dad.

Funny, I thought teaching your kids not to be violent would work.

Boy, what do I know!

Why am I picking on Brad? Good question.

Glad you asked.

Brad thinks that God created variations in species that we’re discovering now so that God could wow mankind into not killing each other. Why do I think that?

Over at my post about the awesomeness of evolution, Brad responded:

Perhaps HE allowed us to discover it only now so we would never get bored as a human race and start killing each other even faster than we do now? and so we’d never quit searching for HIM?

In case you’re lost, like the other two thirds of the world’s population, the pronouns in all uppercase “HE” and “HIM” refer to [whispers] GOD.

Yawn.

God created creation to unfold like the petals of a flower or a bloomin’ onion at The Outback so we would get distracted from murdering our wives and killing our neighbors.

Finding see-through animals is a way that we can constantly search for HIM, right?

I mean, that hard-rock, kickass, love monsters ain’t showin’ his own mug … so he’d rather wow you with a see-through eel and a crustacean or two.

Nothing stops war — started by oppositional religions — like the discovery of Tiktaalik, aka a huge missing link between fish and land animals.

Can’t you just see the magic that could have happened just before George Double-ya sent hundreds of thousands of troops into Iraq if he would have only been made privy to the discovery of a six-legged Zebra with two heads living abundantly in Ethiopia?

Crisis averted!

Let’s all dance in the streets!

God gave us a new Zebra-thing!

But Brad says I’m the shallow one. But I don’t want to debate, argue or go to war with the guy.

Look, a flying dragon saddled by a unicorn!

Damn, dogs, you funny


Image of dog peeking over couch reads, “Every snack you make, every meal you bake, every bite you take, I’ll be watching you”

Cartoon of grill talking to a hot dog reads, “Dawg, why you gotta be all up in my grill.” 

Image of dog at bar reads, “Yeah, I’ll have another. I’ve had a ruff day.”

Dang, Nature, you awesome (Leptocephalus)


This little invisible wormy-fishy, eel larva creature is called a Leptocephalus.

Is that not badass to see how amazingly see-through he or she is.

Organisms like this is why it’s hard to believe in a creator. So what, a designer created this on day whatever of creation, set a timer and said, “Ain’t nobody going to see it until someone ‘discovers’ it in several thousand years. How cool am I!”

Insert slap five fest with holy spirit and Jesus, aka himself. The devil looks on from afar, arms folded, sighing.

Meanwhile, this little booger is found only on one planet (that we know of) in a giganormous universe.

It makes sense in that “every culture comes up with a genesis story” and “Superman and Spiderman are plausible” kinds of mindsets.

I wish science had characters in their history. Don’t you. Maybe then 85% of this country would find evolution acceptable.

Biodork’s impressions from Freethought Festival, WI #FTF1


Regular-reading, blogging, Peeper-deeing Biodork drove down to Madison WI from Minneapolis to attend the Freethought Festival there over the weekend.

She’s pumped up from all she saw, which is understandable. She wrote a first impressions post about it here. You should read it.

Me? I completely forgot about that conference despite my original intention to go. I picked up a coveted job this weekend that made me forget it even more.

And when Biodork emailed to say, “Why aren’t you here?” I wrote back and said, “Holyshitdamnpoop, I messed up!”

I debated driving up for Sunday’s events, but when I saw it was a three-hour drive and I needed to deliver a bunch of video files to a client, I had to nix it.

So go read her blog and let’s all make plans to meet up at the next one.

Deal?

See you next Tuesday, Pastor DL Foster



Text from “ex-gay” Pastor DL Foster reads, “The supernatural, radical, wonder working blood of Jesus is cleansing someone right now from #masturbation addiction in Jesus name #freedom.”

Just so you know, if you have a natural curiosity to touch yourself, this is evil and it needs twitter to intervene with the divine to stop it.

Go figure.
