Quote of the Day

Wow.... I cannot believe that I just read this. Here is a quote that I just read from a Christian blogger. I am going to start a new series of these random statements that I find. Say what you will. Here is the full link so that you can properly contextualize what she said. But, below is the full quote:

A small incident that occurred recently, underscores what seems all wrong to me about Hell. I watched a 2010 rendition of the Diary of Anne Frank on TV. As is typical, I wept in the ending where it showed the Franks and their attic mates being found and taken by the Nazis. Following that scene, this rendition went on to print out how each of them died, accounting how Anne died in a concentration camp. Later when I was talking with my husband John the thought came to both he and myself that it was possible that both Anne and Hitler ended up in Hell. Boy does that seem totally unreasonable! Hitler in hell seems just, but one of his victims- my heart says that's not fair!

Now This is Some Interesting Stuff

Dr. Georg Northroff, has some controversial findings. He is the research director of the Mind, Brain Imaging and Neuroethics faculty of the University of Ottawa's Institute of Mental Health Research. Here are his credentials;

Anyways, this will probably be the last that anyone hears of him because he is publicly going to denounce the reality of faith from a neurological perspective. In fact, he tends to cautiously allude that the more faithful of our population tend to be highly mentally unstable. Which, in my world, explains alot. Here is the link, it is some interesting stuff. I like where this could go. Many interesting doors could open if neurological research continues to actively pursue this line of thinking.

Big News- The Vatican forgave the Beatles

I guess in all of the recent publicity about the sex scandal and corruption in their church, this one must have went by the media. So, the Vatican forgave the Beatles for the Jesus comment. Check it out, its pretty funny. The hypocrisy is steep.

On March 4, 1966, this quote of John's was printed in an interview by reporter (and friend of John's) Maureen Cleave in the London Evening Standard:

"Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first - rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me."

We all know what followed after. So, now they have released this;

I think that Madonna will have to wait awhile before her apology comes.

Got A Great Joke For All of You.

Happy Easter!!!! Maybe, someday, this holiday will no longer exist. I hope so.
So, here is my great joke.

You ask the person "What's this" and stretch your arms out as wide as they will go.

They say "I don't know".

You say "A shitty way to spend Easter." End of joke.
