Bible Biology - It's In The Water

Genesis 30:37-39
Jacob, however, took fresh-cut branches from poplar, almond and plane trees and made white stripes on them by peeling the bark and exposing the white inner wood of the branches. Then he placed the peeled branches in all the watering troughs, so that they would be directly in front of the flocks when they came to drink. When the flocks were in heat and came to drink, they mated in front of the branches. And they bore young that were streaked or speckled or spotted.


How has science not discovered this brilliant way to affect genetics? Mendel move over.

Jesus Rapper Aviad Cohen - Fire Starter



copyright Hebrew Homies by 50 Shekel

A hilarious interview or infomercial for 50 shekel is
Sid Roth's It's Supernatural Show.
The first 5 minutes are great. "That is what we are supposed to 'jew'".
First I was like this is a spoof LOL and then I was oh, its not. ROTFLOL

At 19 minutes in, Frustrated with his Jewish religious teachers, Aviad gets Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ video. He describes getting it like buying a porno. Once home he puts it in machine and settles into a very comfy chair. Once at the end of the movie he gets all choked up because they crucified his Yeshua, "the only one we will ever have" (like he is talking about his mama"). The next morning he relates to his alarm as a miracle of god because of its reception. Funny how he goes public with Jesus. Also he tells you how to save money with Jesus. Good stuff.

Valentina And 97 Keys


Valentina Lisitsa pays this Liszt piece written for a piano with 97 keys instead of the normal 88 keys. All 97 keys are played! A whole octave on the low range. She is a wonderful pianist who I still hope some day to see in concert.

Atheists Donation Rejected By American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society (ACS) recently turned down a donation from the Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB), an organization that supports atheist causes, even though the Foundation had offered to sponsor up to 100 teams for the ACS’s Relay For Life fundraiser. Tod Stiefel, who was organizing the effort, had offered to match any proceeds up to $250,000. At first, ACS seemed to welcome the pledge but then they reversed themselves, saying that they only allowed “national teams” (which receive high-profile exposure at the events) from corporations and not nonprofits.

ACS updated members with this statement… “It’s clear that the American Cancer Society and Foundation Beyond Belief share a passion for saving lives,” the update said. “We welcome FBB’s participation at our local Relay For Life events and we have not turned down their donations. We have shared this information with FBB and hope they know we welcome their ongoing support and involvement.” The statement neatly sidesteps the issue of ACS providing profile to FBB of course.

Seminary professor Brandon Withrow writes for the Huffington Post, “The last time I checked, atheists are human beings plagued with all the same ills of humanity; cancer is no respecter of persons. And while most people would likely understand not taking money from recognized criminal and terrorist organizations, this situation does not apply. So is ACS essentially slapping the hand of the Good Samaritan because he is not a believer? A half-million dollars can go a long way for cancer research and why the ACS would turn this down is (wait for it) beyond belief.”—Ruth McCambridge

God Of The Week - Enki (start of week)

A few weeks back a friend invited me to a ride on Skyline Drive. We settled on this past Thursday. The weather was quite dicey, in fact on Wednesday we got lots of rain. Riding is for fun. If you get caught in the rain that is one thing but if you start out in the rain it's a real drag.

Anyway Thursday morning weathermen were showing 30% chance of rain. It was cold and blustery. Going up on Skyline you can expect it to be 20 degrees colder. Wet and Cold ain't my thing.

So, I headed out to met him at the southern end of Skyline. Working my way the thought hit me, maybe I should pick a god of the week and pray to it to see if anything happens. As you know Jehovah is a jealous god and gets very pissed if you worship any other god. So I thought I would make a test and keep it clean so I don't get killed by a lightening bolt or something.

Recently I have been reading Sumerian text. This scripture predates the Bible and surely inspired the writers of the Bible directly and indirectly. One god who appeals to me is Enki. In the Sumerian story of the flood, Enki was the god who saves mankind after the flood. That seems way cooler than Jehovah who used the flood to kill mankind. And a god who is looking out for me is someone I can put my trust in.

Anyway I prayed to Enki and found comfort in it. I thanked him for my day and and my righteous Ducati and the opportunity to ride it this day.

I started to get nervous as I progressed. I had just looked at my maps at home but didn't bring them with me. I started to worry that I had missed my turn and now would be hopelessly lost messing up the timing of our ride together. So I prayed to Enki and said please help me find my way and not get lost at all. Now I thought I should address Jehovah, but you know the guy is a pisser so like an evil genie you must be careful with your request. I prayed to Jehovah that I would get very lost and even requested with a smile I would even wind up in Alabama. I figured that wouldn't be too bad and make a great story. It certainly would be warmer and I hopefully would still be alive. So I continued on for miles and miles really thinking I had messed up, still imploring both gods, respectively. Then on the horizon there it was my turn. Enki had come through for me and either Jehovah was snoozing or he isn't as jealous as Moses thought.

As I approached the southern end of Skyline I saw my friend waiting for me and I thanked Enki for this. I asked my friend how long he had waited because I was running late. He said only 10 minutes. That made me happy that I had been so blessed by Enki.

I prayed to Enki for a safe ride and that we would not hit any critters. I decided I didn't want to talk to Jehovah about this and you can figure out why. I would just rely on Enki.

Also I did pray to Enki that it would not rain on us. I did pray to Jehovah that we would get a pouring rain, you know, really messing up the trip, as is his wont. Since Jehovah was the flood maker and Enki was the one who helped mankind afterwards it seemed like a pretty good request. All through the 3 hour ride I kept up these dual prayers.
It periodically would threaten rain, but at most there was a tiny spit that both my friend and I asked each do you see that? But you can tell from the pictures that it was a pleasant trip. Thank you Lord Enki.



Praise be to Enki, the much-praised lord who controls all the arts and crafts, who takes decisions!
- Sumerian scripture


On Friday I prayed to Enki asking for a safe drive back and forth to work. And it came to pass.

My plan is to continue to pray to Enki for a week and then look for another god in some subsequent week.

Who is your favorite god?

End Of The World - Harold Camping - Well ?

So far nothing.

I went to the Family Radio website and found an audio done by Harold Camping a few weeks back. If you listen to it you see if you think like I do he is on his meds. He now says he thinks it is Oct 21, 2011, but God is no respecter of persons. He does change his story. It will be quiet this time. So, it is not falsifiable. The only thing he gets excited about is saying THE ELECT WILL BE SAVED. Duh!!! Isn't that what this solipsism is all about?

Brainwashed Christians


Was in a Christian store and I bought this t-shirt to wear to my next atheist event. The owner I believe was a tad suspicious of me. He said, "Oh, brainwashed. hmmm....". I wonder how many they have sold but it says it all. Nasty brain, nasty brain, I will wash out your thoughts with soap if you think anything else.

Here is another one. Giving credit where credit isn't due. The periodic chart was created by Mendeleev. That Jesus always taking credit.

My Hair Like Jesus Wore It

This is the original version which was made popular by the Cowsills. I like this version better.





Darling

Gimme head with hair, long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there hair, shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there mama, everywhere daddy, daddy

Hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it my hair

Let it fly in the breeze and get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas and a hive for bees
And a nest for birds, there ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my

Hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it my hair

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy
Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted
Twisted, beaded, braided
Powdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!

They'll be ga ga at the go go
When they see me in my toga
My toga made of blond
Brilliantined, biblical hair

My hair like Jesus wore it
Hallelujah I adore it
Hallelujah Mary loved her son
Why don't my mother love me?

Hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it my hair

Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it my hair

Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it my hair


Then there is Gaga original hair.

Paying The Church Keeps You In Heaven



Creflo Dollars is his stage name. He called himself that to "CREate a FLOw of DOLLARS". It is a millionaire times over and people continue to follow him. It is amazing the things you can do with god on your side. Yesterdays post showed religious nuts won't take 20 bucks, but this shows they will certainly give it and more. All in the name of imaginary sky daddy.

What Happens After Death



Rabbi/Atheist Debate on Jewish TV Network

Whizin Center for Continuine Education program presents leading advocates for atheism, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris square off against Newsweek top rabbis, David Wolpe and Bradley Artson Shavit to determine what may or may not happen in the hereafter.

Entertaining if you have the time. Hitchens is delightful as always. One rabbi doesn't believe in an afterlife while the other does. It is noted near the end that most Jews are atheist, which Hitchens retorts "It is most comforting to know that the first monotheistic religion is the first to abandon it".
