His royal überness

Myers’ Law – In its simplest form Myers’ Law states a baboon has no capacity to either receive or transmit information without corrupting that information. In practical terms this equates to there being no realistic relation between what you communicate to a baboon and what that baboon actually hears. This communication loses even more of its original meaning in the event that baboon then communicates a response back to you. Further, when information enters the baboon echo chamber it loses all relation to reality altogether in a very short time via baboon to baboon retransmission. See cunt kick.

Any non-baboon that has ever attempted to participate in the 24×7 dung fights that constitute what passes for “discussion” on the baboon board knows intimately the feeling that they have walked into some kind of Twilight Zone where ordinary reality has ceased to carry any weight whatsoever. This sense of surreality is followed sequentially by amazement, then by a sense of denial that “this isn’t really happening”, then exasperation and finally overwhelming resignation and despair.

Tell the new, new atheism to fuck off.

This is an extended rumination on some Freethought literature I have mentioned previously. It contains a lot of very pertinent, and in my opinion, critical points that address the why and the how of godlessness, skepticism and Freethought running off the rails as disastrously as they have over the past few years.

These are all points aimed squarely at PZ Myers as he is the prime corrupter of the movement, but it applies equally to all of the other alpha-baboons that have set up shop at the Crisis Factory that is bent on making criminals and pariahs out of anyone that raises a voice in dissent. (more…)

Ophelia Benson practices emergency misogyny response

The Talking Prune’s desperation to cherry-pick for the sake of confirmation bias is well documented and now the stuff of legend. Of all the baboons, she is the one that most consistently has determination enough to bloody her fingernails while scraping the bottom of the barrel.

This is all very much evident in her current barfing – she somehow managed to stumble across the latest, but certainly not the greatest, outrage from a second tier wannabe provocateur cum1 yellow journalist Kyle Sandilands in faraway in Australia (upside down land for the baboons).

This is just trashy headline grabbing in the tradition of Britain’s gutter tabloids, and very much in the contemporary tradition of the baboon board(more…)

"Trust me"

“When science discovers the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to find they are not it.” — Bernard Baily

“It is necessary that we first draw the distinction between evil and ordinary sin. It is not their sins per se that characterize evil people… The central defect of the evil is not the sin but the refusal to acknowledge it… the self-righteous who think they are without sin because they are unwilling to suffer the discomfort of significant self-examination. ” — M. Scott Peck1

“Are a man’s lies merely an indication of his own twisted reality, or does he consciously know he is lying when he sets out to make himself look like the perfect, innocent and injured party?” — Tigress Luv

It never cease to amaze me how The Naked Emperor can continue to pump out this pernicious gibberish and maintain a straight face. It is unbelievable. Does he believe it? I doubt anyone will ever know. A duplicity wrapped in a deceit inside a chicanery. It’s a business model. He has to pretend to believe it – (more…)

Funny! LOL! Get over it.

“The only way to comprehend what mathematicians mean by Infinity is to contemplate the extent of baboon board hypocrisy.” — Voltaire (if he were alive today)

There is only one real consistent set of features within the sheltered workshop that is freefromthoughtblogs – and they are hypocrisy, double standards, demands for exceptionalist considerations and the right to be offended at anything at the drop of a hat. Beyond that, everything is a variable dictated by whatever tantrum is being thrown.

So there was very little surprise to be found in this article passed down the chain eventually finding me –

“Priors”

Is there any fucken d00d on earth who has ever used the word “prior” as a noun who doesn’t deserve a massive punch right in the motherfucken dicke? (more…)

Ophelia Benson protests the evils of censorship

This is not the official follow-on to the previous article, just an intermission prompted by some new superhuman idiocy from the Talking Prune. Call it the straw that broke the camels back for today. Of all of the alpha-baboons that barricade themselves within the Crisis Factory, the one that stands out from all the rest in terms of repetitive gibberish and sheer intellectual incoherence is the Talking Prune, Ophelia Benson.

Really, it takes a special breed of imbecile to criticise the epistemic relativism1 of various irrational belief systems, and then, in the same blog, post articles such as A man generally cannot know – and then expect to be taken seriously. And to compound the dumbness, a blog who’s byline is “fighting fashionable nonsense”. Yet Ophelia does this kind of thing day in, day out and does so with a straight face. (more…)

“It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.” — Clifford’s Credo

This is quite a nice article I blundered into from some group that call themselves SKP Freethinkers (“SKP” => “escapee”, buncha recreational vehicle nuts, but with very solid Freethinker / skeptic foundations).

This is as good a statement of Freethought principles as I have seen recently, and in fact, Freedom From Religion Foundation agree, asking to reprint it as a pamphlet. It is clear, concise and to the point – simple enough even for baboons to understand. It is well worth a read, and whilst doing so, bearing The Naked Emperor and “freethought”blogs.com in mind. Here’s the link and some choice quotes –
