Something we’ve all wanted to do…

for quite a while now.

Throwing shoes at George Bush.

The only problem is that they system that put him in power is still alive and healthy, and running the USA. Any chance of throwing some eco-friendly, organically grown hemp rope sandals at that? ;-)


Terry Pratchett quotes

Cruising the web today and came across a site, lspace, recording some of Pratchett’s quotes from… Jeez he’s funny.

It’s an old magical principle — it’s even filtered down into RPG systems — that magic, while taking a lot of effort, can be ‘stored’ — in a staff, for example. No doubt a wizard spends a little time each day charging up his staff, although you go blind if you do it too much, of course.
— (Terry Pratchett,

Oh dear, I’m feeling political today. It’s just that it’s dawned on me that ‘zero tolerance’ only seems to mean putting extra police in poor, run-down areas, and not in the Stock Exchange.
— (Terry Pratchett,

And one that will sum up most of my life, and may even appear on my tombstone, provided I get a tombstone…

The trouble is that things *never* get better, they just stay the same, only more so.
— (Terry Pratchett, Eric)

The gods of the Disc have never bothered much about judging the souls of the dead, and so people only go to hell if that’s where they believe, in their deepest heart, that they deserve to go. Which they won’t do if they don’t know about it. This explains why it is so important to shoot missionaries on sight.

My Very Own Darkly Gothic Poem

Losing Faith

Slender beams of moonlight enter
this darkened prison as I kneel,
always silent, always driven,
frozen here,

Robed forms wrought in panes of glass loom as
dust dances in the air,
forming an image in my mind,
reaving my shamed soul.

Blood on an angel’s face.

I raise my head, now defying
this uncaring Heaven.

The Prof was right.

Guaranteeing salvation since 1620… Ah-huh.

After following a link from Pharyngula about the lunatic fundies doing a hatchet job on Mrs. Myers, I read stuff like:

Vote McCain or God will make you eat your children for betraying America, Christianity and Freedom.

A free people have the freedom not to question their leaders.

Stay the course in Iraq for RAPTURE!

The fine print down the bottom reads: “I am positively NOT Angry and I am NOT gay!” At which point I assumed it must be a hoax site. Thanks to chiropteran for confirming this!

Which makes it *so* good for a laugh, though perhaps a slightly bittersweet laugh when you’ve personally been part of a cult that taught things all too similar to the parody on the Landover site. If you think the stuff they’re laughing at is fabricated, have a squizz at the Focus on the Family’s Australian beach-head.

Imagine that. Only 9% of christians have a Biblical worldview. What a stunner. Who’d have thought that after 6 million years of evolution we’d have to remain stuck in the nomadic desert culture of ancient Palestine and pretend the earth was only 4,000 years old? Not to mention the treatment of women and children in such a society. How exactly do we justify factory manufacturing and the internal combustion engine if we have a Biblical worldview? What of quantum physics? Hell, I’m a witch and use astrology, but even I recognise that it’s mainly psychology. But psychology isn’t part of a Biblical worldview either. That’s what stops them going to see a shrink and dealing with their delusions.

If you think self-serving, myopic, misogynist politicians aren’t using Fundamentalist lunacy over here in order to get re-elected, have a look whose face is on this page. Not to mention Federal funding of child abusing religious schools.

Edit: Richard Dawkins review of the whole mess, P Z Myers being kicked out of the screening of Expelled that is, is online now.

Things you read. From the ‘up all night online again’ Dept.

T’was a pleasant evening upon which to revisit the hilarity and obstreperousness of one Twisty Faster, Gentleman farmer and spinster Aunt… Possibly the most (in)famous and certainly one of the most lyrically skilled Feminist bloggers in the whole ‘sphere…

Damn, that woman can write!

Ahem. Anyways. Comments on one of her posts lead to a most amusing, surprising blog by a bloke, no less.

Physioprof is as entertaining as Saint Twisty. Anyone who can title a post: “Ridiculous Demented Right-Wing Wackaloon Theocratic Douchemonkeys Fuck Up Big Time” gets my vote. (Said douchemonkeys kicked P Z Meyers out of a screening of a film defending creationism but somehow overlooked the fact that Richard Dawkins was also in the audience.)

Further, it seems the bloke they kicked out was actually interviewed for the movie. Here’s more.

The original point was that I’m quite amused to find someone more foul-mouthed and anti-religious than I am. Cheers!

Sexy witch blogging.

Found this site and the pics were so good I thought I’d share!

bathing witch Heh, yeah, I’d take her to bed. :D

Good vs Evil…. nutty web humour edition.

This site is certified 66% EVIL by the Gematriculator

Well, it was 33%, but we can’t have that, can we?

Actually I tried many times to get a good evil rating (?) but eventually had to hack. According to the system the Spirit of God is alive and present in all of my writing…..
