A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

Where You Stand Politically

So, you want to  know where you stand and how you can get that cool little icon like I have on my blog?

Well, just go to this site and take the quiz.  I would put no opinion if you are not sure about something.

Please post your results, and you get BIG TIME BONUS POINTS for reasonableness if you score Moderate, Conservative or Liberal!  I “hope” I have constructed a place where divergent views are allowed and where we gain from seeing each other’s perspective.  I also hope that sometimes someone will say, I see your point, or something like that.

So often politics are too personal, so maybe this would at least bring back agreeable discussion and dissent to the forefront.

I’m posting this on all topics to hopefully get maximum participation.

IF you wish to take the quiz it is here.

Thanks!

Idiots on Parade, Westboro Baptist Church and War Protesters, MainStream America

These two groups of idiots on parade deserve each other. One could hope that they were locked in a small room with each other for long periods of time.

This blog has often mocked idiots on parade, they merited it.

However, the ultra Right also has their own group of idiots, and this group of “people” are just as bad, if not worse than the linked idiots. Fortunately, this group, though well known is not well populated. If you are in the mood to get angry watch this video of these pure a**holes of the week. These “people” momentrarily made me ashamed to be associated with Christianity, then I remembered, their beliefs of hatred have nothing to do with Christ.

Then again, the idiots on the Left also like to brainwash their children in the ways of hatred. Maybe these two famlies can do lunch.

And it seems letting kids become future idiots on parade is not just left for the politically minded, but is key to developing good sportsmanship.

Hopefully all of these people will get a Darwin Award, and keep their genes out of the future gene pool.

Kentucky Fried Dinosaurs 4 Jesus?

Sometimes you read a news article that makes you cringe, shake your head, makes you feel tremendously superior, and jealous because you have to say, “Why didn’t I come up with such an idea”. 

While I am not at all unsympathetic to Christian ethics, positive inputs that such an ethos has upon society, and even believe in the benefits that a daily commitment to faith plays in the life of an individual, I am not for idiocy.  That’s right, idiocy.

To those who would sponsor this Dinosaurs for Jesus museum, there are many words, but we’ll stay consistent and use the one that best fits this idea as being “science”: Idiocy.

To those people who honestly and sincerely believe that Noah put all the dinosaurs on the ark that word would bear repeating: Idiocy.

To those who would refuse to understand that much of the Bible requires the intellectual discipline called Hermeneutics to be rightly understood, here is a word you can try on for size: “Idiocy”.

For those who don’t quite get the concept of “simile, metaphor, and most appropriately idiom” I suggest that you call PETA when your kids are “crazy like a fox”, “rooms are pigpens” and “so hungry they could eat a horse”.  Because, guess what, you are an idiot and practice idiocy.

To those people whose head is so far up another part of their anatomy that they see a significant correlation to the idea of evolution in any of its forms, and young girls having sex and having quickie abortions and the boy that fathered the child going off to relive the first part of the equation by surfing porn on the internet, keep your head there.  If you saw the world in reality you could be dangerous, but in reality you are farcical.  Your religion is not Christianity, it is in fact, idiocy.

I know that many of the readers here are religious, and guess what, I consider myself an Evangelical Christian, and I would hope that you are as offended as this snake and oil show posing under religious fervor as I am.  While going to this museum may be a humorous way to spend the day, and there would be a certain satisfaction of watching the antithetical sequal – but equally moronic version – of my original “Idiots on Parade” , I will save my $20.

To those who would promote such claptrap as science to kids – there is a worse word than idiocy, which I will be kind and not use.

Sure, there is room for debate in science about the origins of man and other species.  However, this museum has about as much credibility as the hoaxes that some pro-evolutionists perpetrated upon the public.  However, representing a religion that respects the truth, I guess I expected better from Christians.  Maybe that was my own idiocy.

P.T. Barnum wrote there is a sucker born every 20 minutes, I have to use that one as a Quote for the Day sometime, and I think he had this group of calcuating consumers in mind when he spoke that.  Come to think of it, this museum may not be such a bad idea.  I wonder if the founders of this museum would consider a franchise of “Kentucky Fried Dinosaurs” in New York. 

Even though you don’t really qualify, I am giving to all those who really think this is science, my own honorable mention for a Darwin Award.  Please don’t have any more children.  The world has enough problems at the present time.

When NOT to Multitask

Filed under: Automobiles,Computers,Darwin Awards,General,Politics,Uncategorized — avoiceofreason @ 3:19 am

Heard about this story today while drivng the car and listening to the news radio show. 

It seems that a man was multi tasking when his obvious download of tunes for his IPOD was interrupted by running into a Hummer.  Guess what, he lost.  Now cell phones while driving, I don’t know about.  Drinking coffee or smoking a cigarette in the car, give me a break.  Even having a Whopper, and trying to do it with one hand….. You’re pushing it buster.  Using your laptop? WTF???? Sometimes you just have to appreciate Natural Selection.   In that Spirit I would nominate this man, for selflessly improving our species by removing himself from our midst for a Darwin Award.
