Loony End-of-the-Worldists Lose Again

End-of-the-Worldists Live to Prophesise Another Day

So ridiculous and pathetic are the end-of-the-world predictors, the only ones deserving any respect at all I reckon are those who actually kill themselves, thereby proving that it was indeed the end of the world for some.

And so yet another Judgement Day has come and gone, and here we all are, surprise surprise, although there are those who are saying that the Rapture did, indeed, kind of, y'know, take place, but that Jesus used his magical Cloak of Invisibility to fool us all, and fools there certainly are.

This first video comes from 'The Thinking Atheist' and has been produced in the gravelly-voiced melodramatic manner so many religious propoganda videos are, which is quite funny.

Most pleasing is that it would suggest that there are grounds for hope that not ALL North Americans are religious nutters... which is a beautiful glimmer of hope from that otherwise worrying continent:

The second is also interesting, although you might want to skip the bit that gets quite technical on tectonics, as it were. On the whole it's thoroughly entertaining and quite funny in places.

I'd actually meant to show you yet another video from the Stephen Colbert report, which I've just discovered and which looks very promising. I'll find it eventually and post it in a later episode. Enjoy!

See you in the gene pool

My Favourite Pat Condell Video

Ponderings and Pontifications

It's been a while since my last post, as other things have taken over not really worth going into here. But all this time I've been thinking about how I should develop the Frabulous Frog Freethinker further?

I'm going to take the easy way out here and just post someone else's video. Cop out? Well, yes and no, because I'm thinking that as well as original articles it could be good to let you know what's tickled and stimulated me as I go about my daily life. And Pat Condell's videos always do the trick.

I was thinking about my favourite videos of his when I came to the realisation that... they're all good. In fact, they're all great. So I don't really have a 'favourite' as such, but this one is a goodie, so I'm sharing it here, with thanks to the big man himself (Pat) of course.

And there are so many good people out there producing good God-unfearing stuff that I think it could be a good remit to simply share the best stuff I find, along with my own regular articles on science, weirdness and anything else that tickles my irreverent neurons. Shall we do it like that? OK, let's go.

See you in the gene pool
