But was Cruz just being Ionic ?

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Evolution's funny !
Just listened to an episode of this on the drive in to work today:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06jm72p

Available for free on the BBC iPlayer, and worth a listen for some smiles. (Basically, a stand-up/sketch show, around evolution).

They work well as they are - easier to find than simple text. And with some of our members having visual impairments, that helps, I'm sure.

From over in the Marketing of Christianity thread, our resident master of the typo/bizarre spellings writes:

compromising Christians need a place to console their quilt

Is that why they're called "comforters" in the States ?

Following my previous post, I got a bit creative:

To the tune of A Bag of Weed from Family Guy

Now everybody gather round and listen if you could,
When I tell you there are people here obsessed with Yahweh's wood,
Every thread they fill, every post they pen, eventually you'll find,
References to the dangly bits, of a supernatural kind

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 !

The letter U
The letter U
Penus is spelled better with the letter U
When you got no science
No, not even woo,
Well penus is spelled better with the letter U

When evolution's being discussed, they'll claim it's racist talk,
When holes are drilled in Noah's Ark, they'll say if floats like cork,
When faced with science, they deny it all, with numerology,
But no matter what, they'll come around, to the word that starts with P !

1 2 3 !

The letter U
The letter U
Penus is spelled better with the letter U
When you got no science
No, not even woo,
Well penus is spelled better with the letter U

Re: The OMG moment
Have we really reached a low where a Mercedes owner cannot remember to plug his car in when it is not on the road?

Well, they stopped bothering to connect the indicator controls to the lights on BMW's years ago, on the basis it was a waste of perfectly good electrical wire.

Science vs ID
This thought occurred to me, after I read posts the other day about the soft dinosaur tissue find.

The difference between science and YEC

A three legged sheep is born.

Scientists look for a scientific explanation as to why this differs from the norm.

YECs argue that this shows that for the past few millennia, sheep have been quietly making, fitting and gamboling about on a false fourth leg, the sneaky little buggers !

The secret service have had to be trained to stop Trump from falling in wet cement. Apparently, it would set a very bad precedent....

Hat tip to Parasite’s distributor, Neon:
