Jewish date: 29 Nisan 5769.
Today’s holidays: Day 14 of the ‘Omer.
Today’s quasi-holidays: Laboratory Day, Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, World Book and Copyright Day.
Worthy causes of the day: “Accountability for Torture”, “Fix the economy and the planet now!”, “Let Scientists Speak Out”, and “Support the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act”.
Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
- My review of The God Delusion is taking longer than I thought it would. I blame Richard Dawkins since he wrote the crummy book in the first place. The problem is not simply listing what is wrong with the book, but rather showing that everything wrong with the book fits together in a coherent pattern.
- More countries failing freedom of religion: “‘Break-through’ for Christianity in China a Mirage”, “China: Detained Uyghur Christian Taken to Hospital”, “AZERBAIJAN: What is the 'Plan to Prevent the Spread of Religious Extremism'?”, “Christians killed in Egypt feud”, “UZBEKISTAN: 15-day jail term for teaching Baptist beliefs”, and “TURKMENISTAN: Conscientious objector convicted as criminal”.
- A small victory for freedom of religion: “Egyptians win the right to drop religion from ID cards”.
- “Kings Moved to Summer”: That show is now endangered. And, yes, I still owe you a review of the latest episode, “Judgement Day”. I plan on getting to it after I finish my review of The God Delusion, YHWH willing.
- “Pope Pursues Heavenly Power With Plant Harnessing Sun”: This is a good way for the Catholic Church to set a good example.
- “Giant Mystery Blob Discovered Near Dawn of Time ”
- “Our Selective Moral Outrage”
- “The $200 "Mac"”: Apple, please learn something from this. Or at least learn to put “page up”, “page down”, “home”, and “end” buttons on laptop computers.
- “Disgrace at Durban 2”
Enjoy and share the weirdness.
