Blasphemous Blogging: The Blog of Edwin Kagin

Blasphemy is the crime of making fun of ridiculous beliefs others hold sacred. This blog is about satire, truth, inquiry, and critical thinking. It is about enjoying life before death. It is about how some try to control many through their notions about a make believe supernatural world and imaginary rewards and punishments after death. This blog says that blasphemy is a good thing, a healthy thing, and a good antidote to harmful superstition. This blog is about freedom. Edwin.

Edwin Kagin on Happy Birthday Earth

Today, October 23rd, is a very important birthday. Maybe the most important birthday of all.

Because, you see, according to Bishop James Ussher, god started the creation of the Earth, and all that in it is, on October 23, 4004 B.C. Yeah, that's right. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ussher_chronology

This incredible fallacy of thought forms the basis of the Fundangelicals' world view, including the absurdity known as Creation Science, and leads them to cute little conclusions like, "God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve."

To which one might reply,

"And Cain and Abel, if your brain is not stable."

Or "The Fruit on the Tree is stupidity."

Or "Eve got the blame, she was framed, what a shame."

Help hold back the darkness.
