Beware of shark


Jewish date:  25 ’Iyyar 5769.

Today’s holidays:  Day 40 of the ‘Omer, Tuesday of the Sixth Week of Easter.

Today’s quasi-holiday:  Bike to Work Day.

Worthy causes of the day:  “Tell BLM no more public lands for the world's dirtiest fossil fuel!” and “SAY NO TO U.S. PRESSURE ON ISRAEL”.

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
  1. After the Rapture: Orlando man will deliver messages to those left behind” and the associated site, The Post-Rapture Post - Send Messages to Loved Ones!:  An atheist set up a joke site offering for a fee to deliver messages to people left behind after the Rapture.  Strangely enough, people actually placed orders.  Go figure.
  2. A bit of relief:  “Well-known Canadian imam issues fatwa against Taliban”.
  3. Yet another view of that 13-year-old boy with Hodgkin’s lymphoma refusing chemotherapy for religious reasons:  “The case of chemotherapy refusenik Daniel Hauser”.
  4. An article clearing up a common confusion:  “Satanism vs. Wicca: Two alternatives, often confused, little in common”.
Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is the cartoon “Outreach”.
Enjoy and share the weirdness.
