GI: Than Are Dreamt of in Your Philosophy

Gooooooood Evening, y'all.  Welcome once again to your daily nugget of mental nourishment that is Genius Idiocy.  In this edition, we explore the concept of thinking and using one's brain.  And thinking before opening one's mouth.

Or not...

Thinking for ourselves is quite dangerous..Would it not, rather, be prudent to seek the Lord and Live?”

In this case I agree with you.  Someone like you thinking for yourself could get us all killed.


“Newly-wed Roman Catholic couples are being encouraged to say a special prayer together before having sex.

The specially-composed Prayer Before Making Love is aimed at 'purifying their intentions' so the act is not about selfishness or hedonism.”

You’re right. God must have made a mistake by designing sex between consenting adults to be actually enjoyable. Good thing the Vatican came along to clear up the erratum


[From a pro-abstinence blog]

“When you play with fire, there is a 50/50 chance something will go wrong, and nine times out of ten it does.”

And I thought I was bad at math.


[Pope releases album for Christmas, litanies and chants in honor of the Virgin Mary.]

“What, pray tell, does MARY have to do with CHRISTmas??? They may as well just change the name to ‘MARYMAS’.”

Well, come on. You know the story. She had something to do with it.


Bonus Round!

“But to be fair, I think that in Atheism, you always have to rule out intelligent design and Creator. So, if you are an atheist looking at Mt. Rushmore, you must presume that the Presidents faces appeared as a result of purely natural causes.

While I think there are indeed very tough questions that we as Christians cannot answer, I think Atheism too has it's questions.”

Okay, gimme a minute here to pick myself up off the floor and catch my breath.  I want to try and say this with a straight face. 

First of all, yes: I completely agree with you that there are indeed tough questions that Christianity, Atheism, and many other religions cannot answer right now.  If you had said that at the beginning and simply shut up, you’d have been ahead of the game.


Sigh.  Gutzon Borglum, American artist and sculptor. Created Mount Rushmore by taking dynamite and blasting the hell out of the Black Hills over the course of fourteen years and inciting the ire of the Lakota Sioux in the process, to whom the government had originally ceded the land in perpetuity.   He was neither a God nor imaginary. 

And just FYI, none of the heads on Mount Rushmore can talk, either. --Irish
