Seen on the Information Superhighway:

So the Pope is having a conversation with Aliens from Mars.
Pope: “Do you know Jesus?”
Alien: “Oh, Jesus. Great guy. He comes to our planet twice every year.”
Pope: “Every year?! It’s about two millennia and we’re still waiting for his second coming.”
Alien: “Maybe he didn’t like your chocolate.”
Pope: “Chocolate?”
Alien: “Every time he visits, we gather the best chocolate from each manufacturing plant and give them to him before he leaves. Why, what did you do the first time he came here?”

I used to use Goodreads just for a quick summary, but now that I have an account on the site it's really fantastic and I can organize the stuff I want to read, which used to sit in a neglected text file on my phone.

re: Trump’s blog shutting down for lack of anyone’s interest in it.

I’ve said it before: the value for conservatives in social media comes almost entirely from being able to antagonize people who don’t want to interact with them.

Once you strip away the “making the libs cry” aspect of conservative social media, they lose all interest in talking to each other. That’s why Parler failed, that’s why Trump’s blog failed, that’s why these people won’t just leave these platforms they hate so much.

That is source of the hysteria about “cancel culture” and deplatforming. They aren’t upset at losing the right to speak (nor have they lost it). They’re upset that they’re being deprived of access to a captive audience of non-conservatives to upset.

KF can't stand it when his threads die out. In his most recent thread the last post was five days ago. So he posts a comment to try to revive it again.

I guess his cut-and-pasta machine is broken otherwise he would just post a new OP.

There should be a variant of the New Age Bullshit Generator just for KF.

One of my socks got banned because it told KF that “Bullshit Baffles Brains”.

A friend of mine just shared this with me.  The article is sadly threadbare, and Poe’s Law is in full effect, but this might attract both those in on the joke and those who aren’t.  Birds aren’t real

At Mind Matters News: Michael Egnor Takes A More Jaundiced View Of Richard Lewontin

Michael Egnor asks, re Richard Lewontin, Is it scientific misconduct to make science about materialist atheism?
Quote

My friend and colleague Casey Luskin has penned a poignant essay in memory of Richard Lewontin, a Harvard evolutionary biologist who passed away at 92 recently. Casey is a gentleman and a scholar, and very much disposed to finding the best in people. Indeed it seems there was much that was very good in Lewontin’s persona, and Casey highlighted it beautifully in his encomium.

On August 12, some religious types are having a Global Prayer to End Atheism!

So if I wake up irreligious on the 13th, prayer is falsified, I guess.  :p

Trump Wants Supporters to Carry ‘Trump Cards’

From the Corner Gas episode "Friend of a Friend":

Quote
Brent: Oh, the card. Do you want a card?
Davis: Well, if you think we deserve them, sure.
Brent: Absolutely. From now on, you guys are Elite members.
Karen: Just Elite?
Brent: Gold Elite. Tell Wanda I said make it happen.

Wes: How come Hank and Paul have the same level of card that I do?
Wanda: Oh, they're Prestige. You're Senior Prestige.
Wes: I let you backdate your insurance that time you drove your car...
Wanda: Okay, okay. You're Platinum. I'll just need to access your file to input the necessary changes. Pla-ti-num. Congratulations.
Wes: Cool.
Brent: Platinum now?
Wanda: I slipped it in between Gold Elite and VIP Titanium. You have got to stop handing out new cards.
Brent: You said I wouldn't have to do any work.
Wanda: How is not handing out cards doing any work?
Brent: I don't know. It smells like work.
Emma: How come Wes is Platinum and not me?



... and so on...

Bible-Dinosaur-Ex-Con-Creationist Kent Hovind Arrested For 'Bodyslamming' His Wife (For Jesus?)

Kent "Dr. Dino" Hovind, great lover of Jesus and proprietor of Dinosaur Adventure Land in Conecuh County, Alabama — a creationist theme park, "Where Dinosaurs and The Bible Meet!" — has been arrested on charges of domestic violence.

According to an order of protection filed in July by his now-estranged girlfriend and non-official third wife Cindi Lincoln, Hovid "bodyslammed" her in October of 2020, sending her to the emergency room. Then, in January, she alleges he sent an associate to her home to threaten her with a gun, just like Jesus would have. The day after that occurred, the associate came back and trashed her property. Allegedly.

Hovind himself actually recorded the incident, which Lincoln posted to YouTube along with other things she cited as evidence of his intent to slander her.

"He wants to shut me up," Lincoln wrote in her petition, "He is dependent upon public opinion for his livelyhood [sic.] .... [I] fear he will kill me to shut me up."

That might not be so far off base for Hovind. Should he be convicted, this will not be his first stint in prison, having served eight years for tax evasion. In 2020, Hovind tried to sue the US government for $536,041,100 on the grounds that he never should have been arrested for tax evasion, for reasons of "a bunch of sovereign citizen bullshit." The kind where nothing counts because his name wasn't written in all capital letters. That case was dismissed in June of this year, but Hovind has maintained that he does not have to pay taxes because all of his money and property belong to God.

After getting out of prison, Hovind moved his "Dinosaur Adventure Land" from his backyard to an empty plot in Conecuh County and began evangelizing almost daily on YouTube to nearly 185,000 subscribers who apparently want to get theological and scientific advice from an ex-con who got his doctorate from a Christian diploma mill for $2000.

As his non-legal wife, Lincoln could very well have been privy to tax evasion he's been engaged in since they've been together, without anything being covered by spousal privilege. After all, his first wife ended up with a prison sentence herself and his second marriage ended partially because his second wife, Mary Tocca, was suspicious that he was again engaging in tax shenanigans with his ministry.

In a YouTube video posted the day after his arrest, Hovind assured his 185,000 viewers that he was "squeaky clean" and that there was nothing to be concerned about, that this was all just an evil plot to make him look bad, orchestrated by people who don't love God.



He also said that his lawyer told him audio recordings exonerated him, which seems like terrible advice given how disturbing they are.

Hovind is wrong about evolution and dinosaurs. He was wrong about not having to pay taxes because all of his money belongs to God and Jesus and the United States government didn't capitalize his whole name on his arrest warrant. He will also be wrong if he suggests that God or Jesus told him it was okay for him to bodyslam his ex.

What's the point of one of these so-called Trump Cards"? It makes you a (literally!) card-carrying Trumper, fine. So I guess it's good to identify its bearer as an Us rather than a Them. But does it do anything else? Like, does it grant a discount on purchases from Trump-owned businesses..?
