Foul Mouthed Mom Refuses To Believe She Is Texting The Wrong Number And Becomes The Laughing Stock Of The Internet

I have a feeling this mother is looking for a very small hole to crawl in to. I feel bad for her daughter having to grow up with a completely clueless idiot like this for a mother.  But we do want to declare her the language stock of the internet.

From The Article

"Here at Someecards, we've seen lots of wrong number text conversations, but this one from Imgur user velakskin might be the most amazing yet. Most people quickly end the interaction once someone tells them they've misdialed, but this short-tempered mom wouldn't even hear it. She just kept haranguing this middle-aged man to bring home groceries on his way home from school.

So Today Is Ask an Atheist Day, Here Is How To Respond To The Silly Questions Christians Ask

I don't know who the author of this piece is, I copied it from a friend on Facebook and these are some great responses when a Christian asks we Atheists dumb questions.

Apparently, it's Ask An Atheist Day.
I'll save you the bother.
Yes, I've considered that I could be wrong, but I'd have to see evidence to move me in that direction.
No, I'm not afraid of hell.
No, I'm not mad at any gods, because I don't believe any exist.
Yes, I have a moral compass.
Yes, I believe some moral values are absolute and that there is a sound basis for them without religion.
No, atheism isn't a religion.
Yes, I'm capable of love.
No, I don't need you to pray for me.
No, I don't want a pamphlet. 
No, I'm not an atheist because church members were mean or my church didn't serve coffee or because of churches actively provoking discrimination against me and people I love.
I'm an atheist because I don't believe there is any rational evidence for any of the named gods, and that there is rational evidence against some of them, including the one I was raised on.
No, you can't change my mind, unless you have evidence.
No, 'I feel it' isn't sufficient evidence.
If you've wondered anything these don't answer, hey, fire away.

Why a mom's Facebook warning about human traffickers hurts sex-trafficked kids (sharing article with comments)

This mom did a lot of harm with her misinformed post and may have put untold numbers of children at risk with her misinformed warning.

From the article, "A viral Facebook entry about child sex trafficking posted by a concerned Southern California mom, Diandra Toyos, has reached tens of thousands of people through shares, likes and comments. Unfortunately it is a misinformed and ultimately harmful depiction of what this crime is about and how it happens in the United States.
In her post, Toyos relays the story of her family’s recent outing to Ikea, which was interrupted when two men followed her, her mother and her children through the store, despite their efforts to elude their pursuers. This was a terrifying incident and it reminds all of us of the need to be cognizant of our surroundings.  The problem is that Toyos framed herself and her family as “targets of human traffickers” in the post. There are zero indicators of human trafficking in Toyos’ story. Zero.
I wish I could say the post nonetheless will help make us all “better safe and vigilant” than sorry. In fact, I find that it so misrepresents the dangers, warning signs and risks associated with sex trafficking that its readers and likers may now try to protect kids by watching for the wrong things in the wrong places. They may miss real sex trafficking as it happens; they may miss the opportunity to extend a lifeline to child who needs their help. What people don’t understand about sex trafficking can prove lethal to kids."

A Few Things I find Weird About Religion

Posted by Zman

Some things about religion I find a little strange.

First, the whole concept seems weird.  You have this man in the sky who according to mythology created everything, then decided for some unknown reason that it should create humans.  We don't know why god did this.  We are never told, just that god did it.  Seems silly but OK. so let's say god for reasons only known to it created humans. We are also told god is all knowing and knows everything humans will do before they do it.  yet he has the nerve to get mad when humans disobey him which being all knowing he knew would happen.  Seems silly to get upset over something you knew would happen.  We have a word for people who do that.  We call them not too bright.  On the subject of being all knowing, we are also told that humans have free will.  That would be impossible with a god who knows what you are going to do before you do it.  Now the best explanation I heard for this but it is still flawed and I'll explain why in a moment is if you have a child and ask them if they want a ham sandwich or peanut butter sandwich for lunch you pretty much know what they are going to chose so that is why we have free will.  The problem with that is that a child might choose the other one once in a while. An all knowing god would know this already,l a parent would not.  If god already knows that on January fourth of 2018 you kid is going to choose ham over peanut butter you cannot have free will if it is already predetermined because according to the bible, god can't be wrong.  Kind of puts a hole in the free will idea.

Now let's get back to this whole human's disobeying god thing.  We are told that god threw a hissy fit because Adam and Eve ate an apple.  Seems like a strange thing to condemn humans to hell for but OK so god did not want people to have the knowledge of right and wrong but put a tree in the garden of Edon to tempt them to eat of the fruit that would give them that information.  So he kicks them out of the Garden of Eden for again doing what he knew they would do due to him being all knowing.  So how is god going to forgive humanity?   Well instead of doing the smart thing and just saying, "Ok you made a mistake, no harm"  He concocts this weird idea to come down from heaven, impregnate a fourteen-year-old girl with himself to then die on a cross allowing humans to have a chance at eternal life.  Now if some guy came up to a fourteen-year-old girl and said, "Hi I'm an angel and you're going to conceive the son of god through the power of the holy spirit he would be locked up in the mental ward of the local hospital and not allowed around teenage girls ever again. Yet because it is in the bible no one seems to think this is strange.  Why god had to have such an elaborate plan no one really knows because you're apparently not supposed to question god.

Which brings me to my next point, the whole idea of not questioning god.  The reason for this is simple.  if you question religion you may find out how flawed it is and the inventors and preachers of religion don't want that so they threaten you with eternity in hell if you dare question this made up man in the sky.  Not questioning authority sounds more like the behavior of an abusive spouse of parent and not the behavior of a "loving caring god"  Yet many people are afraid to question this god because they have been threatened with hell so often they are afraid.  That's exactly what religion wants. They know that religion can't stand up to questioning so they use fear to keep their followers in line.

One more for you to ponder.  Those people who say, "everything happens for a reaThat  Taht is the biggest bunch of tripe I have ever heard.  If a thirteen-year-old girl being snatched out of her bedroom, taken to an abandoned barn and raped and burned alive is part of some god's plan and happens for a reason,  that is not the kind of god I would want anything to do with.  My example is a bit extreme but you get the idea. Things don't happen for a reason, they just happen. Whenever I hear someone say "everything happens for a reason" It makes me cringe   Speaking of which.  If god is all seeingg and all knowin then he should also know when bad things are going to happen so he should be able to stop teh attack mentioned above and not let it happen in the first place.  If god knows when bad tings are going to happen and does not inervine then he does not seem like a very loving caring god.

Now if you believe in a god that is your choice and I respect your right to believe what you want.  but to me the whole thing seems a little weird.

So ken Ham Thinks It Is Not OK For The New Power Rangers Movie to Teach Kids How To Accept Others. (Comments with Attached Article

So Ken Ham Does not like that the New Power Rangers Movie Teaches kids to accept others. I wonder if Ham realizes that he is doing more to promote Atheism than he realizes, I can't imagine anyone hearing this and saying, "yep that's the kind of god I want to believe in, a god who promotes hate." I actually feel sorry for people like Ham. How miserable and unhappy he and others like him must be. Not only should we teach kids to be inclusive, we need to teach them that Ham's way of thinking is harmful. With all these hateful people using religion as an excuse to spread hate, no wonder people are giving up on organized religion. Most people I know who still call themselves Christians don't bother with organized religion one reason is due to people like Ham. People don't want to hear some hateful blowhard at a pulpit telling them to hate everyone who is not like them. They want to hear how this god and Jesus guy relates to their lives today. Even if I believed in a god or some kind of higher power I would not waste my time with organized religion and one of the reasons is because of people like Ken Ham who use their religion to spread hate.

Here is an article with more on this subject.
