FSTDT: December 2006

Sunday, December 31st, 2006

I don’t know if I’m going to make this a monthly feature or not. Fundies Say the Darndest Things is a pretty funny web site. If you don’t go by there occasionally, you’re missing out on some great entertainment. Every day, the site collects some of the craziest things that fundies say around the internet [...]

BJ’s Year in Review

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

Our good “friend” Bill Johnson of the American Decency Association has published his year-in-review (note that this link is a PDF), in which he congratulates himself for annoying the hell out of the rest of us. It’s a big document, so let’s get started mocking it! “It Must be Pornographic! I Can See an Ankle!” [...]

Christmas is Bad for the Economy

Monday, December 25th, 2006

I have maintained for years that Christmas was bad. Never mind the fact that the so-called “Christmas Story” a.k.a. “The Greatest Story Ever Sold” is a complete fabrication. Santa is a lie too, but you can still enjoy the story. I guess the difference is that everybody over the age of 5 knows that Santa [...]

Plague No. 7: Hail (of videos)

Sunday, December 24th, 2006

Sheesh! I didn’t want this to turn into just a video blog. I like video and audio, and I will continue to post them when I find noteworthy ones. I promise that the next posting will be a regular rant. In the meantime, let’s get a bunch of these videos out of the way. I’m [...]

Why Fundies are so Uptight

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

(Image swiped from The Onion.) I just had a revelation. I think I finally understand why fundies are so pissed off all the time. The reason is something that we’ve all observed. I just always assumed that it was a symptom and not the cause. Here’s my insight: This is a Christian country. The Constitution [...]

Two More Christmas Videos

Tuesday, December 19th, 2006

Remember about ten years ago when everyone was talking about the amazing potential of the “Information Superhighway” that was just around the corner? How many expected that it would turn into nothing more than a way of spamming us with Viagra emails and delivering videos of Mentos and Diet Coke? Well, among the chaff you [...]

Best Frakking Video Ever!

Monday, December 18th, 2006

I found this by way of Driftglass’ blog. Of course, they could have just as easily done this with Jesus instead of Santa. (If you can’t see the above, you’re probably using Internet Explorer. For shame! Here’s the original YouTube page.)

Exodus Revealed, the Sequel

Sunday, December 17th, 2006

Here’s the second of my two-part review of Exodus Revealed, which airs occasionally on the National Geographic Channel. I’ll summarize this part of the Exodus story, for those of you who weren’t paying attention in Sunday school. That would probably include me. Here’s how I remember it: The Israelites run away but hit a roadblock [...]
