Trump is Jabba the Hut?
This morning on MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle, they were discussing the early stages of the investigation into Trump's inaugural committee. In describing the White House's options to respond, the analyst pointed out that Trump is so exposed on so many fronts that it would be hard to choose a response. Switching to a Star Wars analogy, they'd have to decide whether to attack the Death Star or the base on the planet. Ruhle ended that segment with the comment that she would not want to be chained or handcuffed to Jabba the Hut.

Trump would make a great Jabba the Hut, don't you think?

Master Of Puppets

Perhaps the puppeteer is Mr.Putin?


Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. ~RC Sproul
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." ~Mark Twain "
~"If that's not sufficient for you go soak your head."~Faith

You can "get answers" by watching the ducks. That doesn't mean the answers are coming from them.~Ringo

Subjectivism may very well undermine Christianity.
In the same way that "allowing people to choose what they want to be when they grow up" undermines communism.

The Book Of Mormon
The lyrics in this broadway musical are hilarious. Even though they are poking fun at Mormons, it applies to all of us religious nutters.

Re: The Book Of Mormon
Yeah, because the Scientologists will either sue you or make you disappear.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Street Preacher Bingo

I used my phone to take this picture off of a YouTube video.

It's hard to see the very top, but the name of the game is "You Don't Believe in God BINGO." The object of the game is stand around a street preacher (eg, Ray Comfort) and listen to him. Every time he uses a bad argument that's on the card, you mark it off. The first one to get Bingo yells "Bingo!" and holds his card up. I would assume that everybody gets a different card with the same bad arguments but in different squares.

I just now Google'd it and got these hits: https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&ei=O3WEXMXpD8n_0g...

Creationism Bingo Game
There's also a bingo game using PRATTs: ID Creationist Bingo -- eg, at https://skeptico.blogs.com/...o/2007/09/bingo-creationi.html. Google'ing on creationism bingo will also bring up an image gallery.

The sample card there (not an image) includes:


IRREDUCIBLE COMPLEXITY
JUST A THEORY
MOLECULAR "MACHINES" "TRUCKS" "BUSSES"
DARWIN RESPONSIBLE FOR HITLER / NAZIS
2nd LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS
"WATCH" OR "MOUSETRAP" OR "MOUNT RUSHMORE"
DARWINISM A "FAITH" OR A "RELIGION"
EVOLUTION A "THEORY IN CRISIS"
UNIVERSE IS FINE TUNED FOR LIFE
TRANSITIONAL FOSSILS / GAPS IN FOSSIL RECORD
TEACH THE CONTROVERSY / LET THE CHILDREN DECIDE
QUOTE MINE DARWIN OR OTHER SCIENTIST
JOKER (ie, a free square; does not refer to any mention of William Dembski, Michael Behe, or Phillip Johnson, etc)
MICRO NOT MACRO EVOLUTION
RANDOM / CHANCE
NEWTON (or other eminent scientist) A CREATONIST / RELIGIOUS
CONFUSE EVOLUTION WITH ABIOGENESIS
DNA IS "COMPUTER CODE"
NO EVIDENCE FOR EVOLUTION
COMPARE ID TO SETI / ARCHAEOLOGY
CAMBRIAN EXPLOSION
NO MORALITY WITHOUT GOD
"DARWINISM" "DARWINISTS"
MUTATIONS DO NOT ADD INFORMATION
REPEATS DEBUNKED ARGUMENTS

You could turn these bingo games into drinking games, but your liver would never survive.

Added by edit - Moose has figured out the link to image trick:

Always good to also have a source link, in case the embedding fails.

Nincompooperance
My new favorite word coined by Opus!

Nincompooperance

Not sure why, but the link has a space added when you try and click on it before the "3&oe=5Dss5D4C". Removing the space from the url in the browser will get the link to work.

Link fixed. --Admin

Edited by Admin, : Fix link.
