Political. Nerdy. Blasphemous. What could go wrong?

Watching the fictional Will McAvoy talk to people on Twitter shows me just how much people do not understand the Debt Ceiling fiasco we repeatedly go through. So, I'm going to attempt to create an understandable analogy. Please leave comments and help me refine it!

Today's political silliness comes in the form of BARACK OBAMA: PRESIDENT FOR LIFE.

The "I told you so"s are flying around social networks this morning as conservatives are all abuzz about legislation introduced in the House to abolish term limits for the President.

"SEE! I told you he was going to try to take over and ruin our country!"

When it comes to Bible stories, there are few as silly as the story of Noah's Ark. When discussing the events of the Bible with believers, I often like to ask them how they would react in such a situation if it were presented to them today... so this tweet fit right in:

Most people like to post their "2012 in Review" and their "2013 Resolutions" posts before the end of the year instead of in January. This year I've been engrossed in so many good things and I have been brewing so many things in my head that it's taken me this long to put together a post.

2012 started with a lot of work in January. Kyle and I put in many late nights working on app software for the Australian Open of Surfing 2012 at Manly Beach in Australia. There were some interesting technical hurdles to overcome using new hardware, new software and running an event in an entirely new location which is on the other side of the world!

Christmas Tree

I can't speak for all atheists, I can only speak for myself, so please leave a comment below and explain why you celebrate Christmas! When I hear someone ask, "Why do atheists celebrate Christmas?" my first thought often is: Better Question: Why do Christians celebrate Christmas?

You may or may not have heard about "Right to Work" legislation fights happening in Michigan and other midwestern states. It was really confusing to me at first because of the terminology used.

"Right to Work" legislation has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH HAVING A RIGHT TO WORK.

If you missed my opening post about this train wreck of a propaganda piece, then read 2016: Obama's Colonial America.

I went and watched 2016 to see what all the hype was about. I burst out laughing at several points during the movie because some of the things he says or transitions he makes are so ludicrous. It's full of standard manipulative associations between unrelated things, often without evidence, intended to make you FEEL like what he is saying is true. If you watch it with eyes and ears that want to believe it, it will be AMAZING to you and you'll most likely believe every word of it.

The Oatmeal is awesome and you should go read his comic strip about How to Suck at your Religion. The part that speaks to me was the above panel:

"Allow me to now parrot what my parents told me as a child, thus perpetuating 2,000 years worth of bizarre, backwards, ridiculous beliefs that no one in their right mind would believe unless an authority figure taught it to them while they were young."

When Barack Obama was re-elected last week, my thoughts quickly turned to how Republicans and Fox News would respond to the loss. I hoped the response would be to break out of the Conservative Thought Bubble. Alas, no, the popular narrative seems to have become that black and brown people just want free stuff. *sigh* This started the very night of the election, even before Obama had won!
