Surprise!

Global warming finally being discounted by the Left?  Mr. Fu did not see this coming.

January saw northern Minnesota’s temperatures plunge to 38 below zero, forcing ski-resort closures. A Frazee, Minnesota dog-sled race was cancelled, due to excessive snow.

In event in Minnesota cancelled because of excessive snow?  Did you ever think you would see that in print?

No Kidding Sheep Dip Dunked Leftist

Get a liberal finally whining about something correctly but he still has to jab at conservatives. After talking quite a bit about how conservatives really are more generous than liberals he gets down to this:

So, you’ve guessed it! This column is a transparent attempt this holiday season to shame liberals into being more charitable. Since I often scold Republicans for being callous in their policies toward the needy, it seems only fair to reproach Democrats for being cheap in their private donations. What I want for Christmas is a healthy competition between left and right to see who actually does more for the neediest.

Callous in our policies toward the needy? Didn’t you just disprove that notion? We have personal policies towards the needy and think that the government should butt the hell out of something they do so poorly. The War on Poverty worked about as well as the War on Drugs has, and probably far worse. We know this is true because the Leftists are still whining about the poor.

The real reason that liberals want the government to take care of the poor is that they know that way they can force both the conservatives and the liberals to contribute, knowing full well that the conservatives will keep contributing on the side. If they do not do it that way then only the conservatives would be spending on relief for the poor and then where would the liberal compassion be focused?

More Global Warming Manure

Using computer models to determine the effect of man-made global warming, and so to potentially sue oil and power companies.  It is using computer models people, not measurements.  On this basis I think we could create computer models of the economy that would allow us to sue Democrats for their impact of the stock market.  This could get fun!

Sad Lack Of Faithful Atheists

Amid their many charitable organizations of hospitals, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and pet rescue groups it is sad to think that there are not enough faithful atheists to come up with the scratch to purchase one simple bus advertisement.  Even the though the ad seemed to be geared for not so faithful atheists, “There’s probably no God.”  Probably no God?  Way to take a stand!

It did generate some funny, some sad, and some clever comments:

  • I think almost everyone who exclaims “Oh My God!” doesn’t have a god … oh no, of course, they do … it’s themselves …

  • “Agnostics are intellectual cowards.”

    ..which paraphrases Dawkins. But strictly speaking an atheist is someone who believes that God does not exist (OED:”To deny the gods/God” also see Enc. Brit.). Even Dawkins admits that this is unproven and unprovable, and which means that a genuine atheist’s belief is irrational.

    Indeed Dawkins says there is a vanishingly small chance of the existence of God which means he is effectively a quasi agnostic

    Strange that. It would seem that agnostics are intellectually sensible compared to atheists: and Dawkins is one of them.

    (Strictly an agnostic believes that it is impossible to prove the existence of God, which may be true, but see below why that is irrelevant.)

    The irony is that while atheists often define faith as “Belief without knowledge”, which fits their own position nicely, religions themselves define faith as an act of assent to God’s proof/revelation of Himself: in other words actual knowledge, and reasonable. And for the asking, so says Christ, if sincere/persevering :”God, if you exist, please reveal yourself”, not that any true atheist could say that prayer.

    Many atheists attempt to define themselves as “lacking belief”, which their strong anti-religious presumptions betray is not really true, and which is a quasi agnostic position in any case. Poor presumptuous mites. “To hell, to hell, it’s off to hell we go”…to misquote a film I saw once.

  • Dear Sir/Ma’am

    Atheists have a lot more faith than I have, believing that nothing/nobody made something out of nothing.

    I find it much easier to believe that Somebody made something out of nothing, when “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1

  • Douglas Adams: “Isn’t it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?”

    Yes, but one might reasonably enquire as to who the gardener is.

  • The scientific probability of the existence of a God is 50/50, that is if you listen to Hawkings and other scientist’s multi-universe theories.

    These guys are attempting to prove that there are an infinite number of universes because the constants of the universe have only fairly small margins in which any thing more than a random soup of hydrogen could exist, and the multiplied probabilities mean that the chance is so extremely small that either there are an infinite number of universes or else a God (of some sort). Without further data: 50/50.

    So that bus advert is in any case misleading.

    There is a similar problem with evolution in that the probability of the kick off requires astronomically more than 14 billion years even with such a large universe, indicating an intervention. If you don’t know: most Christians are not biblical literalists and can accept evolution. Only a small minority are the Creationists so beloved of Dawkins.

  • Many people will spend money on something in which they believe: Only a small number would spend money in an idea that they are not sure that they want to believe in.

  • Dawkins’ favourite quote:”Isnt it enough to see that a garden is beautiful….”
    A garden doesnt just happen.. any gardener knows that it takes hard work, dedication, and yes …..DESIGN to make a beautiful garden.
    Dawkins is “perishing” and his eyes are blinded by the ruler of this world.

Well Duh, But Wrong

Headline: Study: Most Americans say many religions can lead to eternal life

That’s a surprise?  And it is also no surprise that this majority view is wrong.  All religions, even atheism, leads to eternal life.

There Have Been Worse Religions

Mr. Fu wrote this in response to a friend who was wondering what happened to “Christmas” stationery (slightly edited):

Yes, the redefining of Christmas into a Winter Holiday.  Like a Winter Holiday is not religious in and of itself? The Druids were up to no good this time of year and everyone whose ancestors painted themselves blue knows it!  While Jewish kids were spinning the dradel Mr. Fu’s ancestors were living in caves, only going out to shove rocks around for a religious experience.

Now that would be a real imposition of religion on someone, drag them out to a field outside of Lincoln, Nebraska and make them stack ten ton rock columns up in the snow.  They think Christianity can be intrusive and obnoxious?  They can just wait until a Druid drops a 20,000 pound rock on their numb foot in the middle of December trying to get the calendar back up and running in time for Winter Solstice!

Wrong To Mourn

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” — General George S. Patton, Jr.

Salute this American, Joseph Richardson, who rescued his four year old daughter, Kaniyah, from the foolishness of a drunk driver, Angelo Thomas.  Our prayers go out to the Richardson family at this time.

John 15:13 – Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Joseph is waiting on the other side.  We thank God for Joseph’s life and the example he provided.  Let us all do likewise.

Yeah, Okay, But….

Just in terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There’s a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning.
Bill Gates

Until you consider the amount of time you could be spending in hell.  Then losing a whole Sunday morning every week might be a more efficient use of your time than anything else.  But considering what Jesus says about people with wallets the size of Bill’s, well, maybe a free Sunday morning is the best he can hope for.  Mr. Fu hopes not for Bill’s sake, but just saying…..

Waiting for Absolution? The Wait Is Over

Whew! That was a close one. Turns on that the Pope has granted absolution to Jacques de Molay and the Templar Knights falsely accused of crimes confused to under torture (that’s real Spanish Inquisition kind of torture Statists, not Good Cop / Bad Cop). Oh, but not Pope Benedict XVI, but Pope Clement V. Looks like the paperwork got hung up at the Vatican in the bureaucracy. But they got it all straightened out so Jacques and the boys can be cut loose.

Oh, uhhh, Phillip IV already did them in? That’s too bad. Can the families of the Templars sue France for restitution?

Does this mean Catholics can be Masons now?
