I Surrender

Friday, February 20th, 2009

I spent the last 12 hours trying to move the blog to another host. It was a miserable failure. I don’t know if the problem is WordPress (die! die! die!) or mySQL or other unknown conspirators. So the blog has not moved. I don’t think it’s possible. As of midnight, 1and1 got another quarterly payment […]

Child Training

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

I was searching the web for old books for a non-BoF project, when I came across some books by a 20th century educator named Angelo Patri. As you can see from the Wikipedia page, he is the translator of several Pinocchio books. You can get a PDF of Pinocchio in Africa here. Beware, though. The […]

Blog Abortion

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

(Image from What to Expect When You’re Aborting) You might have noticed that the site was offline for a couple of hours. I tried to move it to a new web host, to get it away from sucky 1and1. Some sort of bizarre DNS malfunction occurred, then the WordPress installation on the new host decided […]

We Have the Fossils. We Win.

Monday, February 16th, 2009

(Click the image to embiggen.) For some peculiar and unknown reason, the original version of the above poster has almost completely disappeared from the internet. I have a small, low-rez copy in an earlier article. I’ve only found one other copy anywhere on the internet, and it’s just a copy of mine (they kept my […]

Carnival of the Liberals 84

Sunday, February 15th, 2009

Carnival of the Liberals #84 has arrived. It’s waiting for you over at Submitted to a Candid World. There are a couple of articles of note. The Evolving Mind has a tantalizing article called “Cleanliness is Next to Tolerance?” It discusses the results of a study that claims “Cleanliness Makes People Less Severe In Moral […]

It Would Have Been Easier to Keep the Birds Away from the Engines

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

ParrotLover sent me the hilarious image above. He writes: Got an email from a fundie relative regarding the plane landing in the river. Of course I’ve heard on and on how it was actually a miracle and not pilot skill, but this picture takes the cake! I’m guessing God hates birds since he was obviously […]

Britton’s Law

Friday, February 13th, 2009

You may have seen Vjack’s Law, which is: Provided sufficient time and responses from Christians, any critical analysis of the Christian bible performed by an atheist will inevitably lead some Christian to claim that his or her bible can only be correctly understood by the Christian faithful. I like this, because it is a fairly […]

Whoops! Fundies’ Darwin Conundrum

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

There’s some assclown named “Molotov Mitchell” (obviously a communist!) over at World Nut Daily who produces amazingly moronic videos. In this one, he thinks that liberals love evolution, because then they don’t have to believe in God and can do whatever they want. But oh noes!! Teh evilution contradicts all of the tenets that liberals […]
