Humor

Available in six-packs!

Here’s a bit of deliciously sacrilegious video amusement in the form of a frothy alcoholic beverage. There’s even a website dedicated to this tailgate-worthy treat!

They also have some pretty impressive swag, though it looks like you can’t really purchase it… and the price for every item is $6.66.

Who’s up for a cold one?

Oh, it’s a beautiful graph!

So, so perfect.

Some Star Trek humor

One of the commenters on Pharyngula posted a link to this image and I found it amusing, being a Star Trek fan myself (but nearly as nerdy about it as Craig is). Ha!

Evolution is going great!

From The Onion comes another hilarious piece titled Evolution Going Great, Reports Trilobite. I so love evolutionary satire. Here’s a bit…

“It’s a wonderful time to be alive,” said the tri-lobed creature, its protruding feelers and antennules twitching spasmodically with anticipation. “To be born during this, the Cambrian Explosion—why, I couldn’t imagine a better period, really. It’s all happening right now! I mean, if things keep going the way they’re going, what with evolution taking off and everything, pretty soon we’ll have huge, towering reptiles roaming across the earth.”

“Can you imagine it? Reptiles!” the trilobite added. “I’m not even sure what those are!”

Atheist BINGO!

Pascal’s wager is a free square. Ha!

No God Bingo

(thanks to my friend, Paul, for pointing this out)

Ancient Sumerians found it annoying

The Onion generally has great satire and this piece about the Sumerians looking on in confusion as the Christian god creates the world is no exception. It’s simply brilliant!

It starts off with this:

Members of the earth’s earliest known civilization, the Sumerians, looked on in shock and confusion some 6,000 years ago as God, the Lord Almighty, created Heaven and Earth.

According to recently excavated clay tablets inscribed with cuneiform script, thousands of Sumerians—the first humans to establish systems of writing, agriculture, and government—were working on their sophisticated irrigation systems when the Father of All Creation reached down from the ether and blew the divine spirit of life into their thriving civilization.

From there, it just gets better.

The conclusion:

According to the cuneiform tablets, Sumerians found God’s most puzzling act to be the creation from dust of the first two human beings.

“These two people made in his image do not know how to communicate, lack skills in both mathematics and farming, and have the intellectual capacity of an infant,” one Sumerian philosopher wrote. “They must be the creation of a complete idiot.”

It’s amazing how well-written satire can so dramatically (and clearly) point out the silliness of the young Earth creationist mindset.

I’m sure the Sumerians would have agreed.

Jesus and Mo address the issue of the “New Atheists”… sort of.

Ray and Kirk find an appropriate audience

In recognition of the “Origin of Species” giveaway promoted by Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron, Atheist Cartoons has put up this little gem so I thought I’d share it.

Atheist Cartoons - Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron

If you get a chance (and can stomach it), read the introduction (pdf) that Ray Comfort has written for the book. It’s got the standard creationist nonsense with Comfort’s simple-minded proselytizing.
