This guy is funny, Frako

Which got me on a kick of watching comedians that made fun of organized religion. So I watched this guy next.

Humor for Capitalists

Edited by AdminPhat, : fixed spelling of sub title. I assume you meant "capitalists" rather than capialists.


The problem with knowing everything is learning nothing.

If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does, and do what they do.

CRISPR CAS-9
I am posting this link in response to Tanypteryx having brought up the CRISPR gene editing toolkit in Message 415 of NvC-1: What is the premise of Naturalism in Biology? . When I joined OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes) at Cal-State Fullerton upon my retirement, the popular "Science 4 U" class was about half-way through its course on genetics based on lecture videos by Eric Lander, Professor of Biology at MIT. In the part of the course that I attended, Dr. Lander was working through how we would decipher the genome, which turned out to be by using naturally occurring enzymes for cutting proteins and joining them together. Then we got to the CRISPR complex of enzymes.

It's a retired husband-wife team who run the class, so one day she gave us an ear-wig. Which I now pass on to you from acapellascience:

Share and enjoy!

For Those At EvC Forum Who Demand Evidence...

You know you turned me on to this guy, Tangle with your signature quote.

I was browsing Musical Comedy after following the Tom Lehrer link.


"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." ~Mark Twain "
***
“…far from science having buried God, not only do the results of science point towards his existence, but the scientific enterprise itself is validated by his existence.”- Dr.John Lennox

“The whole war between the atheist and the theist comes down to this: the atheist believes a 'what' created the universe; the theist believes a 'who' created the universe.”
- Criss Jami, Killosophy

Humor Me
I dont get it. Does each of them see the other guys "god" on the flags?

or is the Duck a metaphor for humanity rather than God?

Dear old Phat.

One side worships the duck god, the other worships the rabbit god.

Neither side has noticed that It's the same god - the symbols are identical, it's a matter of personal perception which you see, a rabbit or a duck.

It goes far beyond that. Rather than nobody noticing that they're the same, their doctrines and dogmata forbid them from noticing. If you were to start to notice, you would be committing blasphemy, which in the societies depicted would undoubtedly be punishable by death. The moment you start to slip, you would force yourself back on the straight and narrow.

Re: Humor Me
Oh. I thought it might be the hats. One side is wearing a flat top fez-kinda thing while the other is wearing an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss on their heads.

It's the different hats that has everyone so mad. You know how religions covet their funny hats.

I thought the flags were of casaba melons, just different species on each side. Yeah, I have a strange garden.

If someone has trouble twisting their eyes sideways to see duck/rabbit on the flag just look at the hats. That's enough to set religionists off into a killing frenzy.

Not humor, more like horror, but I didn't know where else to put such a revelation.

I have been reminded that Grace Slick is 81 today.

Good god where did the time go? Chasing the White Rabbit.
