If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

First Tunisia, then Egypt. Maybe the Iran theocracy will be next.

Iranian Police Fire Teargas at Protesters


  1. The way I see it, what the Middle East needs is a subversive culture of secularism, a force that pulls them away from the "spirit" and back into the reality of concrete physical existence. Show them how good an orgasm feels, give them a shot of whiskey, and a big old cigar. Set up a form of socialism in their countries, and provide for them better than any religion or God. These things have decimated religious belief in Europe, and they can do the same in the Middle East. In fact, if the Muslims of Europe can be fully secularized, perhaps it will flow backwards and change their parent societies?

  2. Show them too how good having a dog can be and that there's nothing better with eggs than bacon for breakfast. Point out that their (muzzy) societies are so much less successful than the heathen west and that by ditching the whole "Allah" and Mohummed(?)thing, things can only get better. They can get music into their lives, ditch the death worship and guilt and build good lives in the here and now.

  3. Yep, its all about slow corruption.
