Life in Lubbock, Texas taught me two things:

one is that God loves you
and you're going to hell;

the other is that sex is the most awful, filthy thing on Earth
and you should save it for someone you love.


-- attributed to Butch Hancock, The Flatlanders

As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality.

The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naïve and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.

-- H.L. Mencken

"I want you to bear my brainchild."
   -- Matt Arnold, after a demo of a playing card program I'm currently writing
And the least sexiest thing said to me:
"It's all because you blow my mind...and you swallow."
   -- also by Matt Arnold, just so I don't get too cocky.

Yanked from a reply by gizelnort regarding a saying from the 1920's:
"How do you know a Communist? He knows the full text of the Declaration of Independence or the third stanza of the National Anthem."
I am amused.

An amusing article, explaining the reasons why antibiotics and germ theory are a falsification by the scientific medical community, using arguments similar to those used by creationists:

"ANTIBIOTIC EFFECTIVENESS: A CRITICAL REVIEW"

[Warning: This is a Poe's Law, so don't take it too seriously. ;P]

However, this one is not a Poe, from FSTDT:
Gravity: Doesn't exist. If items of mass had any impact of others, then mountains should have people orbiting them. Or the space shuttle in space should have the astronauts orbiting it. Of course, that's just the tip of the gravity myth. Think about it. Scientists want us to believe that the sun has a gravitation pull strong enough to keep a planet like neptune or pluto in orbit, but then it's not strong enough to keep the moon in orbit? Why is that? What I believe is going on here is this: These objects in space have yet to receive mans touch, and thus have no sin to weigh them down. This isn't the case for earth, where we see the impact of transfered sin to material objects. The more sin, the heavier something is.

Wow. I guess I'm a Muslim and didn't even know it. This gem was pulled from "Fundamentalists Say the Darndest Things":
"No, everyone is born Christian. Only later in life do people choose to stray from Jesus and worship satan instead. Atheists have the greatest "cover" of all, they insist they believe in no god yet most polls done and the latest research indicates that they are actually a different sect of Muslims."
And if that didn't get you saying "huh??", how about these taken from antitheism:
"One does not have to read well, one merely must believe; often the mentally challenged are quicker to believe than others." -- Rosemond.com

"Your belief is reality. I've yet to see anybody prove that reality exists." -- Ted Seeber

"Atheism is a bizaare claim. I percieve it the same as if someone told me they could not make themselves invisible." -- Dr. Sinister
Why do I hear a voice in my head saying "Your brain will explode in 10 seconds. 10...9...?"

"Science is a method. It's a general set of procedures that rest on skepticism, induction, empiricism, and naturalism. Atheism is a conclusion." -- PZ Myers

Thank you, PZ Myers for making that distinction in such a succinct and eloquent form. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. ;P
