Okay, there's been a bit of an influx of god squads in Perth city centre as of late handing out leaflets, which is fine. It's legal, they don't talk to you and you're free to do with that leaflet as you wish. Free speech is free speech.

But on my way home today (I live and work in the city) I get handed this leaflet with the caption "It's True" on the front. Inside (so it's more of a pamphlet) are testimonies about how god cured this guy's alcoholism and a woman's cervical cancer and so on and so forth.

I passed the leaflet back to him (didn't shove it, politely passed it back) but accompanied it with, "You're having a fucking laugh, mate" (I'm English, sue me)

I'm fine with people giving out leaflets, but that's pushing the boundaries for me. It's not just about expressing their faith, but actively trying to get people to move away from science based medicine. That I have a problem with.

Thoughts?

I'm never rude to these idiots but it is hard when they come knocking on my door at 9am on a sunday morning with their bloody watchtower mag and start inundating me with "do you have jesus in your life" etc. they are so arrogant while at the same time , ignorant to presume anything about my life and they feel compelled to "save"  me !!!!!

Please tell me this is satire. Somebody, anybody, tell me this is not the actual reasoning process of a living human being.

Was surprised at that "Question Evolution Day" invitation. Saw you're not attending, I'm not either.

I think following on from the Nye criticisms and not giving these people credibility by showing up to debate them is the best course of action. Can't think of much worse than a Hangout filled with creationists.

Well, I've got better things to do than headbutt a wall, as with the Nye debate when asked what would change your mind and Ham answered "nothing", then there goes the whole point of a debate.

Decided I want a new name for my electronic music. My old name comes from Japanese mythology, so I thought I'd follow suit, or at least see if I can find anything decent. Lets just say, I won't be picking this name:

Aka Manto - A malicious spirit who haunts bathrooms and asks the cubicle occupants if they want red or blue paper.

Dafuq?

Chopra's New Hobby

Thought I'd drop this here. This is a comment on my blog trapped by the spam filter. I think Deepak Chopra has a new hobby:

Post writing is also a excitement, if you know then you can write if not it is complex to write.
