During my casual browsing through the ol’ interwebs, I came across a remarkable level of exceptionally daft blog entries here on WordPress. Now blog entries that are not exactly intellectual achievements are not exactly uncommon but the frequency of them on this particular day seemed quite odd. So this entry of mine is to merely showcase a handful of these rather silly entries and briefly explain why they are a clear waste of space. It may seem petty to do so but there is far too much idiocy in this world of ours, those who perpetuate it’s spread need to be pointed out and ridiculed.

Even Optimus facepalms at the stupidity

Oddly relating to the last entry, the Telegraph (that’s a British newspaper, so American readers will have to cope with the -our suffixes. Oh, suck it up!) is reporting on Christians who feel like they are being discriminated against … mostly when they are trying to discriminate against other people. Irony sense … tingling!

nci_classroom_2_imagelargeLast night SBS had an edition of their usually excellent ‘Insight‘ program, where people involved in a modern issue come to say their piece in an attempt to deliver and overall balanced snap shot of the story.  Last night was based on the issue of the creation of ‘League Tables’ and transparency within the Australian education system.  Present was Australian Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard who also serves as Minister of Education.  For those who are not in the know, the current Australian Federal Government want to basically overhaul the existing education system and make it considerably more like the United States and United Kingdom models, which is an incredibly bad thing, but you would not realise that from the somewhat one sided presentation given by Insight.

1177096201508A story coming out of Glasgow caught my eye just now, one regarding a modern art gallery holding an exhibition titled “Made in God’s Image”.  This exhibition had a Bible on display and they actively invited people to write in it.  Now that said Bible has had messages written in it they don’t like, certain people have claimed it has been defaced and are upset.  Of course, they reach this conclusion without actually thinking the matter through at all.

This story out of the United States of America (where else could it come from?) made me laugh in a sad sort of way.  A church in Kentucky celebrating firearms and even giving a free handgun away in a raffle.  That is sure a great way to spread peace and non-violence.  Bring your guns to church … just make sure, like always, you leave your brain at the door.

This humble blog has been operating for some time now, over that time various pieces of evidence for both evolution and to showcase the innate idiocy of creationism/ID proponents.  Sometimes it is inconvenient to trawl through a whole blog, even with the search function, to find a certain entry.  Therefore this entry will be a collection to the various evidence based entries presented as well as other pieces of interest.

In yet another example of a religious organisation demonstrating that it is indeed incredibly backwards in it’s thinking, a Baptist Church is Tasmania has banned Tai Chi classes that were being held on the basis that the exercises go against the Bible.  It certainly makes you wonder about church mentality but is also very revealing about the regard certain religious organisations have for the citizens around them; even those who were receiving great benefit from the classes in question.
