Inspiration for the name, Imam Manamana

I often talk on my Twitter account of the fictional(?) character, Imam Manamana. Here is the inspiration for that name:

 

You can search my Twitter archive for “Imam Manamana” here to see more madness the good Imam has been up to.


Klingon religion proverbs

You can find these Klingon programming proverbs by doing a Google search, but I’ll reproduce them here for your convenience. Then I’ll use them as a template for some religion proverbs to follow

Klingon Programming Proverbs

  • Specifications are for the weak and timid!
  • This machine is a piece of GAGH! I need quad Xeon processors if I am to do battle with this code!
  • You cannot really appreciate Dilbert unless you’ve read it in the original Klingon.
  • What is this talk of ‘release’? Klingons do not make software ‘releases’. Our software ‘escapes’ leaving a bloody trail of designers and quality assurance people in its wake.
  • Debugging? Klingons do not debug. Our software does not coddle the weak.
  • I have challenged the entire quality assurance team to a Bat-Leth contest. They will not concern us again.
  • A TRUE Klingon Warrior does not comment his code!
  • By filing this bug report you have challenged the honor of my family. Prepare to die!
  • Our users will know fear and cower before our software! Ship it! Ship it and let them flee like the dogs they are!

Klingon Religion Proverbs

  • Talking snakes are for the weak and timid!
  • The Bible is a piece of GAGH! I need Dawkins and Harris if I am to do battle with this logic!
  • You cannot really appreciate ‘God Is Not Great’ unless you’ve read it in the original Klingon.
  • What is this talk of ‘religion’? Klingons do not accept ‘religion’. Our response to door-to-door religion salesman leaves a bloody trail of Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses in its wake.
  • Church? Klingons do not go to church. Our species does not coddle the weak.
  • I have challenged the entire Twitter #TeamJesus cult to a Bat-Leth contest. They will not concern us again.
  • A TRUE Klingon Warrior does not retweet stupidity except for his amusement!
  • By teaching Creationism in schools you have challenged the honor of my family. Prepare to die!
  • Our haters will know fear and cower before our Twitter account! Tweet it! Tweet it and let them flee like the dogs they are!

Purple People Eaters really do exist

Here is solid proof on the existence of a One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying Purple People Eater. Not just some silly book written by iron-age goat herders. Oh, no!

Search Google for proof. Over 300,000 results!

There’s even video proof. See for yourself and HALLELUJAH!!! PRAISE THE PURPLE PEOPLE EATER!


Challenge to the Pope

I challenge Pope Benedict XVI to do what Anthony Quinn’s character did in The Shoes of the Fisherman.

This movie is hard to find as it’s old and not popular, particularly amongst the Catholics. Rent it if you can. If not, then you can buy it from:

Or read through this plot synopsis. SPOILER WARNING: The last paragraph is the most important, and it’s a plot spoiler.

Of course, the movie came out in 1968 and there have been four popes since then and none of them have taken the movie to heart, so no, the Catholic Church thinks only of itself. Pompous bastards.

The Catholic Church makes a mockery of their own religion.


Speaking in metaphors

Let’s just grant the possibility that there is a creator god, who’s omniscient, who occasionally authors books. And he’s gonna give us a book, the most useful book. He’s a loving god, he’s a compassionate god, and he’s gonna give us a guide to life.

He’s got a scribe, the scribe’s gonna write it down. What’s gonna be in that book? I mean just think of how good a book would be if it were authored by an omniscient deity.

I mean, there is not a single line in the bible or the quran that could not have been authored by a first century person. There is not one reference to anything.  There are pages and pages about how to sacrifice animals, and keep slaves, and who to kill and why.

There’s nothing about electricity, there’s nothing about DNA, there’s nothing about infectious disease, the principles of infectious disease. There’s nothing particularly useful, and there’s a lot of iron age barbarism in there, and superstition.

This is not a candidate book. I mean I can go into any Barnes & Noble blindfolded, and pull a book off a shelf which is gonna have more relevance, more wisdom for the 21st century than the bible or the quran.

God is impossible: a final proof

Don’t worry, theists. You won’t believe this because it involves logic. That’s a topic that you’re wholly unfamiliar with and don’t believe in.
