We’re Not From Here

by Buzz on 3/05/2015

The Anti-Theist vs Young Earth Creationist hissy fit continues apace, with both sides screaming “Is not! / Is, too!” at each other ad infinitum.

The truth, as always, seems to elude both of them.

Latest clue to the puzzle points us back into the depths of interstellar space again.

“Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are important ingredients of life on Earth,” the study’s lead author, Arnaud Belloche, of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy… The detection of a molecule with a branched carbon backbone in interstellar space, in a region where stars are being formed, is interesting because it shows that interstellar chemistry is indeed capable of producing molecules with such a complex, branched structure.”

So in other words, more evidence that life may have originated off of this planet instead of on it, and if it did originate on Earth then it may have still be significantly changed and irrevocably altered by extraterrestrial influence.

Bad news for the Anti-Theists:
Intelligent Design can’t be taken off the table since there is no way of determining where & how life originated.

Bad news for the Creationists:
Billions and billions of years, poindexters.

Good news for the rest of us:
Ain’t the universe wonderful?

Fictoid: Police Report

by Buzz on 3/05/2015

MAD mag on todays cops

“Care to tell us what happened, Officer Goodfellow?”

“I’ll be delighted.  I was responding to a missing child
report at the local department store when I spotted
the four suspects getting out of their vehicle.  Seeing
they were dressed like Harlem pimps, I decided to
question them in case they had kidnaped the child to
sell her into human trafficking.”

“You do know the missing child was found in
the toy department of the store.”

“I learned that later, sir. 
As I approached the suspects,
they drew weapons — “

“’Weapons’?  As in firearms?  Knives?”

“Clubs, sir.  As I approached the
suspects, they drew their weapons — “

“Clubs.”

“Clubs, sir.  They drew their clubs. 
Naturally, I felt my life was in immediate
danger and so I opened fire.  I’m sure you’ll
agree with me that I had no other choice, sir.”

“You shot and killed four bankers playing golf!”

Everything Else Is Bullshit

by Buzz on 3/05/2015

meet Jesus

There is only one way to love God, and that is by following His teaching thru Christ:
“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”

Anything other than loving one another as God loves us thru Christ is bullshit (Jesus’ words, not mine). Love never seeks to harm, love always seeks to help and, if help is rejected, is prepared to help if the person changes their mind.

Past that, we are to mind our own business, live as peaceably as possible, and look out for those in need. Period. End of discussion. That’s it. Everything else is commentary; fun to discuss but pointless without love.

“You know what I’m interested in?  What I’m going to type tomorrow night.  That’s all that interests me… the next poem, the next fucking line.  What’s past is past I don’t want to linger over it, and read it and play with it and jolly it up. it’s gone, it’s done.  If you can’t write the next line, well, you’re dead.  The past doesn’t matter.” — Charles Bukowski (found via Dangerous Minds)

Thinkage

by Buzz on 3/05/2015

“We love America just as much as they do. But in a different way. You see, they love America like a 4-year-old loves his mommy. Liberals love America like grown-ups. To a 4-year-old, everything Mommy does is wonderful and anyone who criticizes Mommy is bad. Grown-up love means actually understanding what you love, taking the good with the bad and helping your loved one grow. Love takes attention and work and is the best thing in the world.

“That’s why we liberals want America to do the right thing. We know America is the hope of the world, and we love it and want it to do well.” — Al Franken, “Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them
