I actually read Ken Ham's bullshit.  I do it because of morbid curiosity.  How can anyone be this insane?  He says something about the hundreds of times they've written articles (ironically with no references) answering the questions skeptics have.  Yes, but you wrote them glossing over the fact that there are millions of articles in thousands of journals (with peer review lending credibility) that completely destroy every word of those articles.

I just can't even...

"If there is no God, there are no absolutes, and life is a meaningless nothing, why do scientific research? And what is the real basis for it? Why try to make sense of something that can’t be made sense of since it came from nothing?"

This right here is the core problem with this entire "debate" (if one can call it that). He and others like him pose this question as if it's strictly rhetorical and the inability to answer it will give his opposition pause. But it betrays the true flaw in his position.

It shows that people on his side of the "debate" literally view science as meaningless in the absence of their own confirmation bias - an accusation he refutes elsewhere in the same article.

His rhetorical question has a simple answer, of course: the two are unrelated. One "does science" not to find philosophical or spiritual or moral meaning behind the universe. Those pursuits properly remain the domain of religion. To "do science" for these reasons disqualifies the science from being taken seriously.

One "does science" to find out HOW the universe works. Science does not purport to offer what this may mean and does not inherently threaten anyone's personal conviction about what it means. Yet the Ken Hams of the world assume everything is about them and formulate counterarguments rather than celebrating that a deeper understanding of the way the universe works could be seen as insight into how their Creator did all the stuff they want to give Him credit for.

It's just ... Weird.

So, this happened...  I don't know how badass it would be to land and survive, but how bad it would suck to land and survive.
It was her first attempt at skydiving, and it was almost her last. Mackenzie Wethington, of Joshua, Texas, was celebrating her 16th birthday by taking a skydiving trip to Oklahoma.

While this is a brilliant way to teach a foreign language, if you speak English and don't find it hilarious, you have no sense of humor.

This is ridiculously funny, despite the obvious fact that I have never experienced it.
It's not often that a tampon commercial goes viral, but this one definitely nailed it.

If only it weren't an AB-InBev brand... love the commercial, though.

I'm only replying because I want to type +My Asshole Explodes When I Eat Hot Peppers.  That's brilliant.  

Also, They've destroyed Becks, Guinness in the US, and any beer they can cheapen or cut corners in the process.  I stand by my statement that they're the devil.

Impressive...  A 3 hour orgasm...  I think the only reason she went to the hospital was to humble-brag to the nurses...

Introduction
I love things funny.  If you read it here it's probably because I thought it was.  On rare occasions when I post something serious, it's probably because it's funny on some level.  I like philosophy and hate religion, and am a gun toting, atheist, hippie with a real job.

The beer is the real reason to go, but the chefs seem to be pepper heads like me and when asked can really spice up your food. If you ask, be prepared to fry your tongue.

The food is pretty spectacular. I've never had a taco there that I didn't love. I wouldn't have bothered to rate the decor if it didn't make me, because that's not the point of this place.
