Remember the guy who drew this cartoon?
http://www.clarionproject.org/sites/default/files/Cartoon-Shows-Allah-640-580.gif

He was arrested then. Now, he's dead. He is yet another killed by "peace".

He was an atheist. Here is a real war on atheists, not a fake war like criticizing someone on social media. These people are out for our throats. They want us dead...yet at the same time they expect us to tolerate and even respect them. NO WAY!

Nahed Hattar, who was recently arrested after sharing a cartoon on Facebook that offended some Muslims, was killed outside a court in Amman.

Over the past few weeks, I was busy with other things and thus was not very engaged with the news. But the few stories that found their way to me made me realize even more that really, there is almost no reason to follow the news on a daily basis. So let's see what happened while I was not engaged:

Two (popularized) police shootings: Check
Protests and riots: Check
Muslim commits terrorist attacks: Check

If I went back a few weeks and they had me predict the news, I think I would have been spot on. Why? Because humans, by and large, do not have free will, but are rather unthinking machines (no offense to machines) that flow through life based almost solely on statistics and probabilities. But if you don't believe me, here are my sagely predictions for the rest of 2016:

1) There will be police shootings.
2) There will be protests and riots.
3) There will be terrorist attacks by Muslims.

If you don't believe in my prophetic powers, then just save this post and read it again in 2017.

Earlier this year I was on a holiday during which I was off the grid for about 13 days.
I missed the Australian open, but other than that nothing remotely interesting happened in that period.

In recognition of Mother Teresa's acceptance into sainthood, I would like to share a video about her by none other than Christopher Hitchens.

The RNA World Hypothesis

This video showed me some breakthroughs in understanding very early evolution that I didn't even know we'd had yet. It's very informative!

Let's all rise and pledge allegiance to the flag at 3:53.

From "Bright Road", 1953.

Some notes: This was one year before the pledge was changed, with "under God" added to it. Also, this was 66 years before the multi-millionaire Colin Kaepernick, who was thrown away by his diverse birth parents and adopted by a white family decided that he couldn't bring himself to stand for the national anthem of a country led by a black president because "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color." Of course, he has a huge crucifix tattoo on his arm, showing loyalty to an absolute dictator who sentences all those who don't believe in him to eternal torture. ...An infinite number of years of suffering while being burned just for having a different opinion. That appears to him to be a better political system than the "bigoted" one in the US. Whether or not a pledge is a good idea in itself, I will not comment on. But I will say that 1) the pledge itself used to be better and 2) people used to appreciate what they had instead of whining whenever something isn't perfect, even though it's better than 90% of other places in the world. In these ways, although society has no doubt vastly improved in a multitude of ways, there are certain other ways in which it has gone down the drain.

+George Wolf I agree with everything you said. But in response to the oligarchs, it is not "their" country, but everyone's country (for those in its borders). Unlike you, though, I do not see borders as a bad thing...just like I don't see the lock on my front door as a bad thing. If the floodgates are fully opened, then there is no promise that good things will spread everywhere, but there is a good possibility that bad things will. After all, the irresponsible reproduce at a much higher rate, and there are far more uneducated people out there than educated ones. And I say that if you want to attempt to make things work, start at home. We have already seen the results of those who have a mindset that does not cherish education, but instead cherishes religion and popping out as many babies as possible, and with the new open borders, we see that Europe is receiving negative consequences and the Middle East is not getting better. In other words, porous borders are spreading mediocrity and terror instead of wealth and education. And in a way, the United Nations is similar to a one-world government with no borders, and Saudi Arabia sits on the UN Human Rights council. So don't expect great things.

"Allah gave us Germany as a refuge, not the Germans."

Some Middle Eastern immigrants are assimilating. It is idiotic to think in terms of "all" or "none", because those will never come to pass. There are always "some". This article speaks about one. But I find another immigrant's opinion more reasonable.

"The 72-year-old Mr Tibi was born into an aristocratic family in Damascus. He learned to recite the Koran as a child, and grew up imbibing the anti-Semitism that pervaded his environment. But in 1962 he came to Germany, studied with renowned German-Jewish philosophers such as Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer, and embraced the West’s tolerant and open society. As a professor of international relations at the University of Göttingen for four decades, he popularised the term 'Euro-Islam', arguing that Muslims can and should integrate by blending their traditional and adopted cultures into a secularised and modern faith."

"But of late Mr Tibi has turned pessimistic. Mrs Merkel’s welcome last year, he thinks, could even turn Germany into a 'failed state'. Recently, he spoke with ten young Syrians. 'Two of them spoke German, were doing well, and reminded me of myself back then,' he says. 'The other eight were telling me that ‘Allah gave us Germany as a refuge, not the Germans’.' Most Syrians and other Muslims, he now thinks, will never integrate, instead retreating into misogynistic, anti-Semitic and anti-democratic worldviews and segregating themselves in radicalised enclaves."

Interesting article , my only objection is that Europe is not that good at assimilation. It usually does "integration" which in practice means a weird liberal Apartheid with somewhat equal wages :)

+George Wolf​ it all comes down to the % in the area. I've grown up in France so I can relate what is happening with a country that got a percentage 10 times greater that the US.
If you have a low % like in the US, they are (almost always) forced to integrate as almost everybody around them are not muslims.
But when they reach over 10-20%, like it's the case in many area in France, things don't go that well. In school they regroup and act like a power terrorising all other kids, of course treating all others as "dirty whites" and makes that term be so common that you get used to it. They tend to disturb the class making it hard to study for everyone.
But they tend to act strangely, like part of a gang, so of course they have less chance of survival when they need to find a job, and I remember laughing when a HR was talking about one job interview with one of them.
So as they can't find any jobs, they stay in their community isolated and make babies, lots of them. As France gives a lot of money per child, they can have a comfortable salary. There was a case of one muslim having 25 kids with 3 wives (2 where declared single parent to earn even more) and earning over €15k a month, their mansion was paid by the government of course, but the guy was doing radical islamic things anti-french as you may imagine.
So the generations after that are born for money and not for love, so they have even less education and less chance working. The zones where they live in becomes no-law area and tends to make any none-muslim go away as they are harassed all the time.
And do not think this happens with all communities, for example there are Chinese and Jewish communities that have over 10-20% where it is perfectly safe to go.

"Pigs boiled alive and chickens freezing to death in lorries: Shocking report reveals 4,000 severe breaches of animal safety rules at slaughterhouses in just two years."

#AnimalRights   #Slaughter   #Slaughterhouses   #Meat #Humanity
 
This is simply horrific abuse - and it's not motivated by religion, just stupidity and carelessness.
The report found there were thousands of serious breaches of animal welfare regulations, including chickens and pigs being boiled alive and cattle freezing to death on lorries.

Introducing rationality to the masses
Introduction
My long-term goal is to make the world a better place.
My short-term goal is to slow the world's rate of decay.

I love rationality and compassion, and that's what I fight for.  Yet those who eschew compassion should not expect to get it.

My interests are varied, but if I were to make a list of some, they would be atheism, traditional art and architecture, non-pretentious photography, peak oil, economics, environmentalism, and animal rights.  If you are wondering where human rights come in, note that humans are animals.

I didn't grow up an atheist or a vegetarian.  I just got proven wrong.  And when that happens, you can either give in to logic or lie to yourself.  I chose the former.  Nobody grows up with all the answers.  We all make mistakes.  What separates the strong from the weak is the ability to accept that you were wrong and start to do what's right.

With this page, I want to make a difference, even if it's small.  If for every 100 haters, there is one mind that I can change, this will be worth it.

I plan to post links to YouTube videos and the like, which I find entertaining and educational.  I also might write some articles about the things I care about.  Additionally, I may post some pictures - larger versions of which I may put on sale.

We'll see how this goes...
