Yet more unscientific nonsense from the PT Barnum of religion, filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici, who hasn’t met a myth he couldn’t turn into history or an artifact he couldn’t fudge to fit the Bible. As I demonstrate in my book "Did Moses Exist? The Myth of the Israelite Lawgiver," despite such attempts at finding historicity in the Bible, the “Tempest stele” is not an account of the 10 plagues story.

Despite attempts to find historicity in the Bible, the Tempest stele/stela is not an account of the 10 plagues story in Exodus.

"Step right up, boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen of all ages. You wanna deity, wanna relic, a ticket to heaven? Have I got something for you!"

It blows my mind that people are still drawn to this sort of side show entertainment out of anything but morbid curiosity.

This is not religion-related per se (except that fanatics of certain religions think destroying the environment is part of God's plan), but it is vitally important to hundreds of millions globally, because California is the world's 8th largest economy and provides a huge amount of food both nationally and internationally.

+D.M. Murdock Well, it's also a money issue. These wealthy Arabs believe they can do anything because of their wealth. A number of them have landed in Western prisons for all sort of things including enslavement. It's just a matter of time for this one.

PZ Myers on a rampage against me now? I haven't read it, but I don't mind being lumped in with Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

http://t.co/LenA1SJBFq
My criticisms of Ayaan Hirsi Ali seem to have annoyed a lot of people. I have been told that I am completely demonizing her and that I've been assailling her, and of course any criticism of a right...

+D.M. Murdock I love reading threads of you debating people. You excel at it and I'd never tangle with you on a conviction of yours.

If you have ever been abused by religion and the fear of hell, you will want to read my latest article below. Appalling suffering is caused by this concept of eternal punishment.

#christianity #bible
I have been a psychic slave of religions for decades since being brainwashed as a child. I break free on the surface only for brief times, and I then enslave myself again. Now, I am supposed to convert to Orthodox Christianity in a few months, and I have to accept Mary's perpetual virginity to become a convert. That is insane, and evidence of a sex cult, as far as I am concerned. (Actually, it is all insane, but I just will not break free of the ...

This image is germane to the brouhaha in which ex-Muslim and Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali finds herself embroiled for "minimizing" the treatment of gays in the United States. In a recent speech, Ayaan purportedly stated:

"If you are gay the worst the Christian community can do in America is not serve you cake.… I just want you to think about being Muslim and gay today…the worst case scenario…bullies throw you off a building."

I maintain that, as a foreign ex-Muslim, Ayaan's comments reflect her impression of the West as opposed to where she grew up, in war-torn Islamic Somalia. She did not grow up in the U.S. and may be unaware of the struggles of gays over the past several decades.

In any event, Ayaan is correct that, in this day and age, gays fare MUCH better in the West than they do elsewhere.

Just another day on Twitter. I've got atheist PZ Myers yacking at me over Ayaan Hirsi Ali - I seem to be the only person defending her. I had a Hindu Defense League fanatic spew nastiness over my article delighting in proto-Indo-European language. I've got some person invoking a "mythicist friend" and making all kinds of defamatory remarks about me and my work, while raising up an obsessive Christian fanatic critic as a "great expert."

Here's where PZ Myers calls me "too stupid":

https://twitter.com/pzmyers/status/585101013826183168

A pro-Gaza fanatic added me to a series of vile lists about "haters" that includes child rapists, merely for defending Hirsi Ali.

What, no Jews, Buddhists, Jains and Shintoists being obnoxious? Ah, the day is young...
