Honey Boo Boo is child abuse

I have a very high tolerance, and a pretty strong stomach. As a, scratch a human being, I am disgusted that people are watching this crap. That poor little girl is being exploited by her own mother. Someday, that little girl is going to grow up. Someday, she will be a teenager. How is she going to feel then?

Why the West Rules - for Now

Today I started downloading a large audio book to my I-Pod, Why the West Rules - for Now. This heavy book was written by Ian Morris, read by Antony Ferguson. According to Amazon reviews, it spanks fifty thousand years of history and offers fresh insights on human development on nearly every page. People are also saying that it is deeply researched and brilliantly argued.

Right now many worry that China and India spells the end of the West as a superpower. There is a real possibility that India and China will be the next superpowers. To understand what is happening, we need to look back in time and understand why the West became the superpower in the first place. Readers are saying that the book reveals differences of race, culture, individual striving  geography, and populations explaining why the West dominates. As geography and human ingenuity continue to interact, the world will change in astonishing ways.

Reply Ophelia Benson:

When I started doing the YouTube thing in late 2006 I was not sure what I wanted to do. I heard about YouTube somewhere in the news, so I went online and checked it out. Let me just say this, almost immediately I loved it. There were not too many of us back in those days. We got away with a lot more than we do today. 

It's okay if it was normal back then - Islam condones Slavery

Argument from Cultural Relativism 
It has been my experience that when confronted with a negative point of view, one of the arguments Muslims can rely on is the argument from cultural relativism. This argument holds that human values, far from being universal, vary according to time, historical norms, and cultural perspectives. Apologetics  claim that slavery in the Quran is morally okay because it was normal back in those days. Slavery was certainly a cultural norm back when human beings authored the Quran. No one can ever negate this fact. They are saying we should not juxtapose modern standards of morality in today’s society, with the customs and life styles practiced in Arabia fourteen hundred years ago. Muslims admit that moral values today are not in harmony with the moral values practiced by Muhammad or outlined in the Quran. In their opinion Muhammad’s tendency to acquire slaves, regard women as spoils of war and marry little girls must be viewed within the context of Arabia at that time.

I accepted my immature side a long time ago

I know...I know... I am a juvenile. I accept it. But you know what, we have only one life and I enjoy being a little kid once in awhile. We can't be grown-ups all the time. 

Do not play by their rules - Islam and Slavery

Do not play by someone elses rules.

Frame The Debate Appropriately
When attacking the problem of Islamic slavery, pay special attention to how Islamic charlatans frame the debate. If the other person controls the language of key issues, they will be able to position themselves in favorable terms. Even though your argument is stronger, their argument will appear stronger only because they know how to use the right semantics. Atheists must gain semantic equality by choosing the appropriate words. Do not engage in a debate when you are forced to play by someone else’s rules. Islamic charlatans will try to control how the debate about slavery is structured, at every turn and opportunity.
Muhammad kidnapped, raped, bought and sold slaves with regularity. When discussing his actions, use the correct words and adjectives to describe them. When you talk about Islamic slavery use the correct words: slave, rape, forced labor, lashings, pain, suffering and humiliation. Do not use words like ‘indentured servitude.’ They were not ‘indentured’ servants – they were slaves. Muslims would like us all to believe that all of Muhammad’s slaves were ‘indentured’ servants.

Ann Coulter •♥•.¸¸.•♥•..

Personally, I think Ann Coulter is an evil witch from the seventh layer of hell. Her research is shoddy, she is manipulating, mean, ugly, barren  and has a heart so cold a Death Valley summer could not melt it. There are very few instances where I agree with this maniacal creature. Most of the time I wish she would just crawl back under that rock from where she was hatched. One of those instances regards the use of the word Retard. Ann Coulter posted the following comment on twitter. She uses the....'r' word and now twitter is ablaze with 'how dare you' 'apologize to my retarded son' etc..etc...

Examination of Muhammad as a slave trader

In Ancient Middle East, Muhammad and his companions regularly sold, captured, freed and bought slaves. Islam’s holy book, the Quran, the perfect, unaltered word of God both sanctions and codifies one of humanities most inhumane realities – slavery. I wrote a five-part essay as part of my book The Atheist Guide to Understanding Islam. That entire essay will be published in this blog over the next two weeks.

This essay will also question the Qurans authorship, Muhammad’s morality and many other muddy issues Muslims either do not know about or choose to ignore. The moment anyone says any unflattering thing about the Quran, know what to expect. Muslims will scream, “That is out of context!” “Respect my religion!” “Do not insult Islam or you will burn in hell!” Unfortunately for them, I do not believe in hell, paradise, Allah, angels, demons, jinns, flying horses or any other magical thing. These threats do not affect atheists. Muslims tell atheists that if we insult Muhammad, after we die an angel will sneak into our grave and pummel us on the head with an iron hammer. They tell us snakes from hell will bite us and we will have to wear clothing spun from flames. Threatening an atheist with ‘hellfire’ because they insulted Muhammad, is about as meaningful as telling us that evil Leprechauns and arrogant Elves will jump into our graves and dance on our foreheads. Threatening us with childish superstition is pointless. I do not speak for all atheists, but many of them find this sort of thing amusing. In short, Islamic superstition is as pepless as biscuits without baking powder. You will not get a rise out of us – except for our laughter.

Parents in Denial

Dorothy Sandusky and Jaqueline Peterson
In late 2008, Jennifer Hudson´s mother, brother, and seven year old nephew were brutally murdered in Chicago.

William Balfour was convicted of those murders and handed three life sentence. He will never be a free man. When it all happened, I remember hearing Balfour´s mother was interviewed by Nancy Grace. The interview was interesting because Madam Balfour concocted an elaborate explanations for questions having simple explanations. Parents in denial often have overly complex stories, explaining why their child is innocent, a victim, and everyone else just does not 'get' all the facts. They want to bog you down with details that are completely irrelevant to whether or not their child did the evil deed. I remember distinctly in the Nancy Grace Interview Madame Balfour said, with such conviction, ¨I know my son could not have done this.¨She was convinced that her son was innocent. I was able to locate the actual YouTube video and featured it to the left.

Jaqueline Peterson, mother of Scott Peterson, to this day thinks her son did not murder his pregnant wife Laci. She currently operates a website trying to collect donations for Scotts appeal. The website is also full of those overly complex arguments previously mentioned.  Jaqueline was invited to appear on the Oprah show to talk about the case after her son's conviction. Jaqueline said that she would appear on the show, only if the show was about how innocent people are falsely convicted. Oprah refused to do that and the show never happened.

This brings us to our newest woman in denial, Dorothy 'Dottie' Sandusky. Her husband Jerry was convicted of forty-five counts of child rape. I listened to the testimony of several victims. It left me feeling nauseated  I literally had a physical reaction to their testimony. Listening to this is not an easy thing to do. I have a great deal of respect for the Judge and Jury who had to sit through that testimony. One of the victims was Sandusky's own adopted son. Delusional Dottie thinks her husband is innocent and went fully throttle conspiracy theory mode.

I am just wondering when she is going to make a "Jerry is Innocent" website and start asking for donations.

Use Food to Curb Population Growth

The world population reached 7 billion. I do not know about anyone else here, but that is not a good thing. I posted a question on Facebook asking my friends how they think we can curb population growth without forcing anybody to do something they do not want to do. The universal answer was education. I am not so sure.

Economics plays a vital role in controlling population growth. Let me put it this way. In countries with a high cost of living, parents are detered from having more than a couple of kids. Children are very expensive. They need diapers, clothing, toys, food, vaccines, dentists, books, playgroups, and a lot more I am forgetting to list. Contrast this with a rural area where they cost of raising a child is low, like rural Pakistan, India, Ethiopia or China. Children in these countries have minimal education and contribute greatly working on the farm. In rural countries there is an incentive to have babies, especially males, because they can work for the family.

Why I think FTB Women are being sexually harassed

Are these women being hit on as much as they claim?

 Jen McCreight and Rebecca Watson claim that they are constantly victims of sexual harassment and street harassment, especially in the ever-so-dangerous Seattle Washington. I am convinced these women are being hit on and something must be done to stop it! Today we are going to closely examine the following concerns - the hotness factor - attainability factor - and game theory. When we understand these three concepts, we will understand why every penis in the room gravitates to these three women.

Buy Designer Sperm While Supplies Last

There is a saying that we can tell everything about a culture by what is going on in their media, websites and advertisements. I wish I could say that I am shocked, but with the way our culture has changed in last fifteen years, the fact is that I am not shocked at all.

 Fame Daddy is a new sperm donor website offering women the golden opportunity to breed with a superstar. The site Fame Daddy claims to have about forty high achievers across many fields, including rock stars, geniuses, and football players.

Families Upset Because A Psychic Lied To Them

In Yahoo News, I came across this interesting story entitled Psychic Devastates Missing Student's Family

Con Artist 
"Harsha Maddula, a Northwestern University pre-medical student from Long Island, N.Y., went missing Sept. 22, last seen leaving an off-campus party in Illinois. Police and volunteer searchers were unable to find him, but Maddula's family said reassuring words from psychics had raised their spirits.
Apparently, psychics contacted by the Maddula family's relatives in India said Harsha was okay and would be found: "He's still alive. Don't worry.'"
The next day, however, Maddula's body was found in Wilmette Harbor near his dormitory. "
There will always be "psychics" fueling false hope among grieving families. When people are desperate, they will be willing to believe or do just about anything to have any hope. Today I had to think about what, if any, our obligations are to protect people from charlatans practicing quackery...

PZ Myers: a lesson in lazy blogging

¨A lesson in Lazy Blogging¨

Paul Zachary Myers slammed The Amazing Atheist for posting the following image on his Tumblr.
After carefully reading PZ´s blog and dozens of comments posted about TJ´s image, and I realized this topic warrants a discussion. Remember that old expression: a picture paints a thousand words. The expression literally means that a picture tells us just as much of a story as any elaborate text. When we consider TJ´s image, one should see a greater meaning behind it. Thinking is a skill and some are better at it than others. I only ask people to see past the jerk holding the paper, but instead look deeper into the meaning of this image. In doing so, one will find PZ Myers argument to be both superficial and lazy. TJ is certainly no saint, but he deserves to be understood just as much as we all deserve to be understood. 

What other messages can you find in this?

I got Ninety-nine Problems But a B<<<< Ain't One

Elizabeth Escalda, aged 23 was sentenced to ninety-nine years for child abuse. She beat her toddler, and glued the girls hands to the wall. Apparently this woman was previously investigated by Texas child protective services. This 23 year old woman had five children. All of whom have been placed with their maternal grandmother.

Before I say what I am about to say on this matter, I want to be poignantly clear that Escalda is an evil human being who does not deserve to be a mother, let alone be allowed to even keep her ovaries. The District Attorney offered her forty-five years, an offer she turned down only to get ninety nine years.

Davis Aurini - Why Beating Women is Okay

After writing my first blog about the Monster Davis M.J. Aurini - The Canadian Taliban, I discovered a few more things about him. First, his drugs of choice are alcohol and LSD. I guess this is one stumbling block in the road to becoming the next, greatest Islamic Fundamentalist. The Quran strictly prohibits alcohol. Two, he had been accused of beating up his ex girlfriend and giving her a bloody nose. Islam does allow wife beating, so maybe Aurini does have a chance at joining the cult. The article I am referring to appeared in The Calgary Sun: Assaulting Estranged Girlfriend. <--- LINK

Aurini was acquitted of beating up his ex girlfriend. The Judge found that it was most likely self-defense. At first glance, I agreed with the Judges ruling. Below is a segment of the above linked article that appeared online:

My dream Halloween costume

For the last three years I toyed with the idea about a Halloween costume that I would like to design for myself. I know some say Halloween is just for kids. Fiddlesticks! To all those nay-sayers.

Halloween is for everybody to dress up and have fun. I love Halloween. My philosophy is that the best costumes are the ones that require an explanation.

Every political system has good points

Why is it people view the world and politics in absolute terms, either an idea is all good or all bad? The only time people always something is when they breathe. Even then there may be some exceptions. There are as many schools of thought in the world as there are colors in the  rainbow. Some of them have more flaws then others, none of them are perfectly good. My problem is this - why is it so difficult for people to pick and choose what they like? It is perfectly okay to do it. I vote Democrat but....that does not mean that I believe everything Dems say. I do have a few Republican values. I have a few Socialist values and a few Capitalist ones too. It does not mean that a person is an means that a person is an independent thinker.

Ode to Aaron Clarey - the World´s Biggest Mangina

Mangina and Aurini welcome their newest e-book to the world.

Ode To Aaron Clarey

I have the distinct honor of introducing you to Aaron Clarey. ( a.k.a Mangina)

 Aaron posted an important video which has been viewed by over 1200 people. A few words about Aaron. First, he was previously employed on the Board of Trustees at several Accredited Universities He also has previous experience in University Accreditation. As you can tell, these are very important jobs.  

While working on the Board of Trustees and carefully overlooking the accreditation standards in The United States of America, Aaron personally calculated the reading requirements for several different disciplines including Physics, Engineering, Mathematics. Then he meticulously compared them to the reading requirements for disciplines such as English, Sociology, Psychology, History, Art and several other humanities. You see, Aaron is all about fairness. He understands that one hour of Shakespeare is just as difficult as one hour of Physics. He is an honest person, and respects the unique abilities of all people. Aaron collected data proving, without a doubt that Physics 101 is more work than Anthropology 101. Aaron found that Mathematics 322 required more work for the average Joe, than Italian 322. He found that the coursework for all of the humanities and arts were significantly easier than engineering. Those classes contained fewer assignments, easier tests, and sometimes the professors just let the students sleep in class.
