Earth Hour Idiocy Cum Hypocrisy: Burn Hydrocarbons For Mother Gaia

March 31, 08

Take lessons from Al ‘Consume Pollute Blameothers’ Gore’ much?

Watch as these folk burn carbon-emitting substances for no good reason. Earth Hour’s acronym EH? fits so well:

And that’s even taking into account not using other sources of light – mathematically proven! (via AoSHQ)

And here’s a gigantic energy-sucking mansion:

Gore-Not-Green

Oops sorry, that last one wasn’t really an Earth Hour pic… Just Al Gore’s mega-mansion on a normal day!

ConspicConsump

Seriously… Turning off the decorative lights on the San Fransico-Oakland Bay Bridge for an hour saves enough electricity to power Al Gore’s mansion for… Just 13 minutes.

Thus Michelle Malkin rightly mocks the empty, un-enlightened gestures of Earth Sour:

     MalkinLightsOut

Because it takes more energy to show an all-black Google’s page than for an all-white one. Idiocy cum hypocrisy!

Can enviro-kooks please stop influencing the rest of the world to be as obtuse, polluting, selectively blind, science and data ignoring, Third World hating and all-of-humanity-hating as themselves?

Particularly so when the global warming hoax is finally starting to be admitted as such by even the Institue of Public Affairs – mainstream (i.e. IPCC-beholden-government funded) professionals.

Please, just please… Enough of your sheer stupidity.

Protests Against Geert Wilders’ Fitna and What Message Moderate Muslim Leaders Are Sending

March 31, 08

The following is my comment as posted on Haris Ibrahim’s blog, but I believe it is a sombre and serious message for all Muslims who may come across this post.

If you haven’t seen even seen the film or read the summary, please do before you go off and protest too!

Watch: Michelle Malkin or Moonbattery or The Jawa Report

Read: Wikipedia on Fitna

————————————- 

From http://harismibrahim.wordpress.com/2008/03/30/fitna/#comment-12447:

Sir Haris, I too am saddened to note that – yet again – the Muslim leaders of the world are venting their outrage at Westerners deemed to be mocking Islam by portraying it as a violent religion…

Yet not one of them utters a peep about the extremists who call for death and jihad against nonMuslims as featured preaching hate in the film – the same ones who cause Westerners to view Islam as a violent religion.

Those extremists are the ones hijacking and ‘rebranding’ Islam as a religion of war and intolerance in the public eye. Yet none of the moderate Muslim leaders denounce or reject them.

Instead, they issue more calls for boycotts, more protests, perhaps more fatwas against Wilders, a man whose image of Islam is coloured by those very extremists and their multiple death threats against him (even before the film).

What image does this portray to the West when every single time, the Muslim leaders of the world attack the messenger (Wilders or newspaper cartoons), but not the message (extremists who are successfully using Islam as a rallying cry for violence and hatred)?

I’ll make an educated guess on the above question: Westerners will suspect that the so-called moderates secretly support the views of those extremists.

In fact, I am certain that Wilders is counting on such a knee-jerk reaction from Muslims, with maybe some riots and spontaneous murders or innocent bystanders thrown in (like what happened with the Jyllands-Posten controversy), in order to prove his point to the world.

If his aim is to influence public opinion into seeing all Muslims as violent extremists, then I’m afraid that Mahathir and all the rest of the prominent Muslim moderates are only aiding his agenda.

Muslims of the world, fix this PR disaster now – denounce the extremists featured in Fitna along with Geert Wilders!

Way Too Little, Way Too Late Samy

March 31, 08

From The Star 31 March 2008:

Samy wants Hindraf 5 released

By A. LETCHUMANAN

KUALA LUMPUR: MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu has urged the Government to release the five Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leaders detained under the ISA.He said his call was not a publicity stunt or a move to win back Indian support for the party.“This is done in fairness, sympathy and, also, we feel that as Indians, we have to do something about it. It is not a publicity stunt,” he said.Samy Vellu said two of the leaders – R. Kenghadaran, 40, who is very ill and M. Manoharan, 46, who won the Kota Alam Shah state seat in Selangor on a DAP ticket on March 8, – should be freed sooner.

Samy Vellu said the wives of Kenghadaran and Manoharan approached MIC for help to get their husbands released.

He said another two, V. Ganabatirau, 34, and K. Vasantha Kumar, 34, had not been that involved in the Hindraf rally in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 25 last year. The fifth detainee is P. Uthayakumar.

Speaking to reporters after opening a workshop on Rebranding the MIC here yesterday, Samy Vellu said: “I will raise it with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi after he returns from Sabah.

“If he wants to release all of them, it is up to him. We have no objections and we don’t want them to be kept inside for too long a period,” he said.

“I will also meet Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar and Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan.

“I had already made some moves on this earlier but I did not tell anyone. I will now make a firm move to see what can be done by the Government with regard to their plight,” said Samy Vellu.

Samy Vellu said he was harshly criticised by certain people when he spoke to Abdullah and the Attorney-General to reduce the attempted murder charges against the 31 people detained during the Hindraf rally but had still continued to assist them.

“If they (those detained) had gone ahead with the advice of their lawyers, many things could have happened.

“They should not simply be attracted to those people who want to argue for them. Many people like to argue for them so that they can get publicity. We don’t want the publicity, we want the truth,” he said.

On claims by P. Wathyamoorthy, who is overseas, that he would face a murder charge if he returned home, Samy Vellu said this was not true and Wathyamoorthy had nothing to be afraid of.

Ultimate Captain America: Fighting is About Winning

March 29, 08

From the pages of Ultimate Nightmare, view the action before continuing on with the real-life lesson to be learnt.

FightToWin1

FightToWin2

The U.S. Democrats have plenty of misconceptions about why American soldiers are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and anywhere else terror rears its hateful head.

The Democrats and their Code Pinko, World Can’t Wait, MoveOn.org etc allies have the misconception that the troops are risking their lives for petty and selfish things like glory, pride, oil, money, power, New World Order, the Jewish conspiracy or hatred of life.

But as Ultimate Captain America says, fighting isn’t about glory. Fighting isn’t about pride.

Fighting is about winning.

And just like the fictional patriotic hero, the real life patriotic heroes – the Army and the Navy and the Air Force and the Marines and the Reserves – are fighting to win against the terrorists. 

So if crazy people think the purpose of fighting is for such vanities as glory and pride, what does the make the Democrats?

The Democrats fight to appease. They fight to withdraw. They fight to pull back. They fight to retreat. They fight to capitulate. They fight to give up. They fight to quit. They fight to surrender.

Winners fight to win – the Democrats fight to lose.

The Democrats are losers.

Such big losers in fact, that they would rather quit at the last moment before winning just to avoid victory.

Christians and Slavery: We Are to Blame

March 28, 08

For centuries, Christians actively participated in the slave trade. They used slave labour. They treated their slaves as less than fully human. The most glaring example is that of the supposedly Christian Americans and their black plantation slaves.

But I have to say… So did the rest of the world.

The Arabs attacked and enslaved 18 million Africans over 1300 years. The Arabic word for ‘black’ is the same as the word for ‘slave’, abd/abed.

The Aztecs attacked, enslaved and cut the hearts out of their captives for human sacrifice long before the Conquistadors brought their ‘corrupt white man’s values’ to the Americas.

The Barbary pirates took 1.25 million European slaves in unprovoked raids on the Mediterranean coast from the 9th to 18th century.

(They even attacked fledgling America’s ships, for the reason as the Tripoli ambassador explained:

It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman (Muslim) who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise.

This eventually led to the fledgling USA’s first ever incursions into the Middle East to smash the state-sponsored terrorism – the irony, eh?)

But just who was it who eventually spoke out most strongly against the slave trade? (It was men like former slaver turned clergyman John Newton and former hedonist turned abolitionist William Wilberforce.)

Who was it who actually passed modern Parliamentary laws banning the trading of slaves and then the act of slavery itself? (It was the Christian British with the Slave Trade Act 1807 and the Slavery Abolition Act 1833.)

Who was it blockaded the entire Atlantic slave trade with their naval might? (It was the British Navy acting on the abolition laws passed by Christian Britain.)

Who was it who wrote, some 2000 years ago when slavery was the backbone of the world’s economic system, that a master should treat his thieving, runaway slave as a dear brother? (It was the Apostle Paul, in the entire Book of Philemon.)

So where were the enlightened, progressive, forward-thinking atheists during all this time? Why did it take backward, xenophobic, racist, prejudiced, slavery-sponsoring Christians to speak out against the backward, xenophobic, racist, prejudiced, slavery-sponsoring Christians?

Meanwhile in modern history, avowed atheist and prolific church demolisher Stalin sent 18 million political and religious prisoners to work as slaves in the Gulags.

Black Africans enslave Black Africans even today, as a continuation of their pre-colonial practices… No Caucasians to blame this time.

Slavery in modern Muslim countries continued to be legal – abolished only from the 1920s onwards, with Saudi Arabia and Yemen giving it up in 1962, Nigeria in 2003 and Mauritania in 2007. Slavery of non-Muslims in Sudan continues even today. (Video of former slave who escaped at this link.

So slavery is not a uniquely White Christian sin. On the contrary, White Christians were the first (and for a long time, only) ones to try and put a permanent stop to it in modern history.

And White Christians are definitely not the culprits when it comes to modern day slavery.

Slavery was the way of the world, and de facto still is the way of the world… And Christians are the ones who abolished it.

That is what Christians are to blame for regarding slavery.

Consensual Incest – Atheists Please Tell Me Why It Is Morally Wrong

March 28, 08

WARNING: The following post contains very mature content. Parental discretion is advised (which is ironic considering what I am about to say).

Atheists, liberals, sexual progressives such as LGBT groups, and anyone else who disregards religion… Please answer the following query.

Why is incest – sexual acts between closely related family members – illegal?

Why do people recoil in disgust at the mere thought of it – even liberals and atheists?

What basis is there for moral relativists, who reject all traditional and religious taboos, to feel that incest is wrong?

You may try and quote that incest is akin to rape by one’s closest, most trusted loved ones – but what about consensual sex?

You may try and quote the emotional immaturity of the participants – but what if they are both adults?

You may try and quote the imbalance of authority and influence between a parent and a child – but what if it is between two siblings of almost equal age?

You may try and quote the risk of genetic defects – but scientific research has shown that incestuous reproduction between first cousins has a genetic defect rate of around 1.7 to 2.8% extra - as low as that of an ordinary 40-year old woman having children. Are you going to ban middle-aged women from getting pregnant too?

And they could be two brothers or two sisters anyway, which precludes any incestuous pregnancy.

So I’ll ask again – what basis do atheists, liberals and moral relativists have for the intolerance, bigotry and Dark Ages mentality they show when they denounce full blown, incestuous, unprotected anal intercourse between two adult brothers as ‘gross’?

If you cannot give a satisfactory answer, then why is consensual incest still unlawful if acts such as homosexuality or even bestiality are now legal?

Why do you still cling to old-fashioned, outdated, archaic laws – which more progressive and tolerant groups are even now seeking to abolish?

What basis do you have for acting and thinking like such prudish, sexually intolerant fascists – like those religious bigots who think homosexuality is a sin in God’s eyes?

Or do you admit that, deep down inside where you don’t dare look, you are influenced by irrational and illogical religion-based taboos against incest?

After all, these upstanding progressives don’t have a problem with it.

I await your answer, especially from my favourite atheist commentors. You know who you are.

Sci-Fi Reason #13056 We Must Stop Global Warming

March 26, 08

…Because when the Arctic ice all melts, The Blob will return to consume us all.

The_Blob_poster

Yes indeedy folks, of all the countless imaginary crises that global warming is said to cause, endlessly expanding goo that absorbs and dissolves anything is surely the most immediately threatening scientific fairytale! Not even global warming zombies can compete, when amoebas can eat the dead.

So beware, global warming holocaust deniers… Your sins against Mother Gaia will soon bring about the end of the world through… The Blob.

(And I don’t mean Al ‘prosperous belly’ Gore. Though his massive appetite for resources and insatiable greed are more than a match for a giant space amoeba.)  

PS. Luckily then that there hasn’t been any net Arctic ice melting in the past year . Or great will be The Gorb’s wrath.

I am an A-atheist (Because Atheism is an Unproveable Faith)

March 26, 08

Did you realize that someone who claims to be an atheist – one who does not believe in the existence of any gods – is outing himself as a hardcore believer by blind religious faith?

If you’re not sure, just ask him how he knows that God does not exist. To save time, here are the mutiple-choice answers he will probably pick from:

A) I don’t really know for sure.
B) I just know it.
C) I believe it and that’s what counts.
D) @#$% you, you brainwashed, opiate-of-the-masses addicted, fundamentalist bigot!!!

The point being, no atheist philosopher has ever actually disproven the existence of God. Logically and rationally, it is a patently impossible supposition.

Indeed, this is why most serious and scholarly hard skeptics of religion do not call themselves ‘atheist’ but rather agnostic – they know that it is impossible to prove that God does not exist, so they instead hold to the much less shaky claim that one cannot know for sure about God.

After all, how does one go about disproving the existence of God? You’d think that one of those oh-so-countless, oh-so-intelligent atheistic scientists would have attempted to do that by now.

This is because disproving the existence of God is totally different from disproving the existence of, say, unicorns. Or to be more exact, Planet Earth unicorns – as a creature fitting the description might by chance exist on some faraway planet in Alpha Centauri.

All one has to do is search the entire world’s habitats which are suitable for a land-bound, four-legged, grass-eating, not-heavily-furred mammal. And maybe all of those genetic tampering labs too.

Once that is accomplished, one can say that they have proven beyond reasonable doubt that Planet Earth unicorns do not exist.

But the Christian definition of God is not that of some Earth-bound, fleshling creature. God is omnipresent and spirit – that is, God is everywhere and He is not a physical being.

So in order to prove that God does not exist, one would have to search out every habitat that God could ‘live’ in - namely, the whole entire universe.

So Mr. Atheist Scientist, you’ve searched all of Beta Quadrant? Well, God could still be hiding in Gamma Sector. Or maybe the Outer Rim galaxies. Or Dimension-X.

Are you done with that final star system yet? You’d better hurry up with checking the insides of those not-even-light-can-escape black holes, everyone knows God hates to lose a game of hide-go-seek.

Oh wait, did I forget to mention that God is spirit? You’d better invent something that can detect forms of energy never even theoreticized about before.

Um, maybe I shouldn’t bother you when you’re in such a bad mood… But did anyone tell you that God transcends the space, time and multiple dimensions He created in Genesis/The Big Bang?

So does this mean it is humanly impossible to prove that God does not exist somewhere out there in the vast, unexplored, ever-expanding universe? You betcha.

Therefore, since the atheist cannot PROVE that God does not exist, he merely BELIEVES BY FAITH that God does not actually exist.

Unless, of course, the atheist can simultaneously search all of time, space, reality, and existence outside of these things and thereby PROVE that God is nowhere to be found. But in order to do that, the atheist would have to be omnipotent and omnipresentso the atheist would be god!

Congratulations atheists, welcome to the Club of Religion! Don’t worry about catching up to the older members on intolerance, persecution and religious war – your avowed atheists Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot already beat them all by a hundred million victims!

And on a final note, if you protest that my logic is totally flawed – that the burden is not on you as an atheist to prove that God doesn’t exist, but rather is on me as a theist to prove God exists – then I have something to declare.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am an a-atheist.

This is not to say that I do not believe in the existence of people called atheists. Rather, I do not believe that there is such as thing as ‘God not existing’.

And now, I as a a-atheist place the burden of proof on the atheists… To prove to me that God does not exist.

Knock yourselves out.

UPDATE: I have been corrected… Atheists can prove that God does not exist, because atheists are god!
