I wonder if they'll ask the kiddies questions about genocide and torture condoned by God? You know, cuz evil is fun!

I'll bet they will lame out and Jesus will not be a character - You probably can't even get cheat codes to be him - which is bullshit. Any game worth its salt has cheat codes giving you the power of god!  
Who wants to bet that the lame ass media will do a story about this?

But Bert, it's not evil if God does it! It's righteous!  
And is that the Grand Canyon being carved out on the game cover? Gee, I hope so.
From: Ross Entered on: November 1, 2005 8:19 AM
I think that's the parting of the Red Sea. The Bible doesn't talk about the Grand Canyon so much. :)
From: Swerb Entered on: November 1, 2005 12:18 PM
Yeah, that was a joke. The Grand Canyon was created after God ate too much pork 'n' beans.

I'm sure most of you heard, but the Intelligent Design movement got F'd in the A today in Dover, PA. This was the biggest fight yet and man, did those wacky creationists get their heads handed to them in sweet style:
From the judge's decision, this is my favorite snippet:  
"Those who disagree with our holding will likely mark it as the product of an activist judge. If so, they will have erred as this is manifestly not an activist Court. Rather, this case came to us as the result of the activism of an ill-informed faction on a school board, aided by a national public interest law firm eager to find a constitutional test case on ID, who in combination drove the Board to adopt an imprudent and ultimately unconstitutional policy. The breathtaking inanity of the Board?s decision is evident when considered against the factual backdrop which has now been fully revealed through this trial. The students, parents, and teachers of the Dover Area School District deserved better than to be dragged into this legal maelstrom, with its resulting utter waste of monetary and personal resources."  
That is what I'd call the legal equivalent of a bitchslap.  
Also, interestingly, one of the leading ID supporters, a douchebag named William Dembski, whose blog I read, was strangely silent on the matter today. Normally that pompous blowhard jumps on any news mentioning ID, but I wonder why not today?

Here's an old school topic that we've talked about before but still a crowd pleaser on Jackassery:

Believe it or not, the Dover ruling actually (and perhaps ironically) gives me faith in humanity. Wow! Reason and logic has won a battle! Didn't think that happened much anymore.  
I read a review yesterday about this bullshit special Barbara Walters did called "Heaven. Where is it? How do we get there?" The reviewer illustrated an exchange she had with an atheist, where she said "We can't prove there is a heaven, but you can't prove there isn't one, either." Duh. This is journalism? Thankfully, the atheist being interviewed said, "If you insist there is a green man outside the door, then the burden of proof is on you."  
By the way, Bone, that blog is pretty sweet. I like me a good profanity-riddled rant.

What should give you even more faith is that the judge is a conservative good 'ol boy appointed by GWB himself! Read this page of comments PRIOR to the trial from Dembski's blog (comment #4 in particular). They were sure he would rule for them:
Also note how the "less than 10%" case in Dembski's mind is exactly what happened. Ha, fuck you, you fucking fucktard.

Evolution named 2005's top scientific breakthough.
Wow, people are figuring this out just now?  
On a seperate note, at lunch today my friend described his job as the bow catapult branch officer, "To say that I have any responsibilities is like saying a Christian Scientist is a scientist". For some reason I found this hilarious and sprayed diet coke all over the table.
From: Ross Entered on: December 22, 2005 10:13 PM
What's more ridiculous is that you were drinking Diet Coke. You are truly an Old Man.  
I don't understand that article, it's very poorly written. First of all "Science" is one of the top two (along with "Nature") science journals in all the world. They are stooping to sensationalism, capitalizing on the Dover court case. Shame on them.  
Second, and less importantly, why can't a nigga never get a straight answer on the DNA difference between humans and chimps? 4%? That's the biggest I've ever heard, and surely wrong. 98.7 is the most recent figure I've read, but it's never the same no matter what I read.  
I just hate this entire paragraph:  
"Wide-ranging research published this year, including a study that showed a mere 4 percent difference between human and chimpanzee DNA, built on Charles Darwin's landmark 1859 work "The Origin of Species" and the idea of natural selection, the journal's editors wrote."  
Is that even a sentence?  
In any case, there is NO FUCKING WAY that the diff between a human and chimp is in ANY WAY based on Darwin's work, okay? Darwin had NO IDEA what the mechanism for evolution was, never heard the word "mutation", couldn't even spell "DNA". Alright? Why are science writer so incredibly bad at writing science articles? Anyone? Swerb? Who the living fuck is writing this trash? I'm writing the lot of them off entirely.  
Booze. I blame the booze for this outburst. But I stick by my guns. Booze in no way dilutes the basic content of my... DIScontent.

Yeah I'm ashamed to admit I drink diet coke at work because the water is so fucking horrible. Outside of work I never drink soft drinks for health reasons - except when I mix them with whiskey.
From: BigFatty Entered on: December 22, 2005 10:38 PM
Yeah Whiskey, which is drunk for health reasons. I do it myself.  
Watch for Zilla's addition to the DNA agruement shortly. It will involve the similarities between people and a grain of rice. Zilla - don't dissapoint, even if I stole your thunder.  
As far as the poor writing... Whoever submitted the sentence Ross quoted is a son-of-a-bitch. He ripped that right out of my thesis 'Feasibility of New Product Introduction of Canadian Vodka to the Hungarian Market'  
From: Swerb Entered on: December 22, 2005 11:14 PM
That Yahoo article is horrible. Obviously, the "writer" cut and pasted some bullshit from a press release and left for an early lunch. I see that kind of thing all the time.  
Here's something fucking retarded:
The dumbest thing in the article, though, is this quote from the school board president: "I don't think there's anything wrong with it, but we'll talk about it with our attorney." Duhhhh... Just further proof that extreme Christians have no concept of what happens outside their little sphere of existence.
From: Ross Entered on: December 23, 2005 8:02 AM
That wasn't an op-ed was it? Because this sentence doesn't sound like unbiased journalism to me:  
"The reference to Christ's birth is a single sentence in a half-page letter complimenting Kenowa Hills staff for sacrifices at a time when state aid lags and Michigan's economy is not strong."  
That sounds like justifying one group's position over another's.
From: Swerb Entered on: December 23, 2005 8:53 AM
I'm not sure I follow you there, Bert. It wasn't an editorial, though.  
Here's an interesting wrinkle - I sent a copy of the article to the Michigan chapter of the ACLU, and actually got a response! The e-mail said they weren't previously aware of the situation, and thanked me for informing them. Sweet!

Has anybody seen this PBS series? I'm getting it from Netflix:
It appears to be very thorough.
From: Ross Entered on: January 3, 2006 10:56 PM
Yes, I downloaded this a while back. It's quite good. Highly recommended.
