Friday Link Dump 2/25/11

The Hubris of Holism - Victor Stenger.

In addition, I have read Robert Lanza’s work and’s shite.  

The Origins of Religion - Victor Stenger!

Alcohol Exposure Makes Fish Anti-Social - There are “one to two of every 1,000 birth cases” in the United States each year with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder? Horrid.  

Benny Hinn Sued For Adultery - “Hinn is estimated to be worth hundreds of millions, money largely scraped out of the Social Security checks of the gullible elderly and the desperately ill. He travels the world in a $36M personal Gulfstream jet in between stays at his numerous opulent mansions.”

Gaddafi has lost it ...If you are anything other than a power hungry dictator who doesn’t care about other humans you would step down in lieu of all the violence. Dick.  

Bahrain's army deliberately kills peaceful protesters with live rounds - Viewer Discretion is Advised.  Remember this the next time some asshole yells about “TYRANNY” on Facebook from his office cubicle and says that the US government is a dictatorship.  

Not yet.

Help Nathan Fillion Buy Firefly  - I'm not a "Browncoat" but I am SciFi nerd who knows the pain of a show cancelled prematurely. #Enterprise

Response to an Apologist's Critique of New Atheism

Steve: “This is perverse.”  


"To be beatified, a dead person must be declared by the Church to have prompted a miracle. The Church says a 49-year-old French nun was miraculously cured of Parkinson's disease months after John Paul's death after she and fellow nuns prayed to him.

For John Paul to become a saint, the Church must declare that a second miracle occurred after the beatification ceremony."

Something good happened after he died. It must be a miracle!  I can't wait to see what they identify as the next miracle. Maybe a woman who had an abortion will miraculously get pregnant again.

Jack: Well no matter how it works, according to any of the Christian faiths no form of birth control is 100% effective. :P

Watch a “Real Time with Bill Maher” Audience Member Go Crazy - Truthers.  You can’t take them anywhere.  

God says animals must suffer more - Seriously, do not watch if you get queasy at the sight of blood.  This is pretty disturbing.  

Because the Internet hates you - Sorry about that.  I couldn’t resist. I offer this as an apology.  

Amazing video shows the relative sizes of all the planets and stars - Missed a planet, but this is still very cool.

The things I end up finding for this site.... - mock this.  mock it without mercy.  

Hackers warn Westboro Church: Stop now or else - So what does WBC do?  Egg ANONYMOUS on.  Oh sooo stupid.
