Nice scarf or not, I sincerely hope it doesn't have Jesus-cooties. (If so, may your Pirate-cooties pillage them senseless.) Love, R xxx

Man, I HATE when people ask if I believe in "God" or approach with the opening: "We have a message for you from Jesus Christ." Thanks, but if JC wants to get in touch, he's capable of dialing direct.

I agree with pumpkin queen. BTW Blogexplosion sent me, but I'll probably return all on my own, if I can work out how to use this internet thingy.

I love the "Me, I'm an unapologetic agnostic" paragraph in particular.

Hey, Ben, welcome. I think you get the magic web box working by chanting mantras and sacrificing a goat.

'Scuse me now - gotta go get the Jesus cooties out of my hair.

I knew you were really hoping for explicit "doggie style" photos (soon, soon!) but for now, I'm pleased to hear you love black labs. Did you know that black dogs are the least likely to be adopted from a shelter? I hear that wise shelter workers doll them up in bandanas to increase interest (Spread the word!) And Buddy would probably fall in love/intense like with your cats. SweetPea would eat 'em up as an appetizer (she was polite to my darling tabby Noodle -- may he rest in peace -- but just BARELY). Whenever you wanna dog sit, just let me know! P.S. I loved this entry of yours. Top notch! You slay me.

Of course you do realize we've been dipped in the religion of scientific-materialism and spout its commandments and sing its hymns without even being aware of it. Which makes our religion of agnosticism one step behind the god squad. At least they know who they worship. A rose isn't a what is a wonder. Now that's worth worshipping.

Oh spare me. People who denounce science as a kind of religion have no fucking clue how the scientific method works. It's called "evidence", honey. When you have some, it's science. When you don't, it's faith.

It's evidence of just a different kind of mystery, babe. Some tag the name god on it. Others just as fucking clueless call it science. And stand so smug in their pointless knowledge.

OK, if someone can decipher the above comment into something that actually contains logic, you're da bomb.

If it's a mystery with no known answer as of present, guess what someone using a scientific method calls it? "A mystery with no known answer as of present." The answers we do have, we have because we have this stuff, it's called "evidence", which is collected using other stuff called "the five senses". It is then presented to other non-involved people who try to duplicate the answers, thereby proving their reliability. When new information comes in, we add that to our initial answer. There are always new answers coming in and expanding our existing knowledge, because we keep asking questions. When science puts forth a theory, guess what we call it? A theory. A guess. A hypothesis. That's science, and it bears no resemblance to faith. If you think it does, it's because the idea of thinking objectively escapes you, which then means I'm completely wasting my time. I strongly suspect that to be the case. It's like trying to catch the attention of a horse wearing blinders.

Oh, and by the way, the Vatican agrees with me that science and religion have little to do with each other.

I believe in God. But I have a pragmatic tendency that makes me want to find a way of getting rid of those cold callers who keep phoning me while I'm eating dinner or putting my daughter to bed etc. So this woman phones to sell me Sky TV. I ask her, "But are you saved?" I reckon she might hang up. This is my strategy to get rid of these people - TV, double glazing, insurance, mobile phones - whatever they're selling. "What?" she says. "Have you been washed in the blood of the lamb?" I ask (I am good on the lingo). "Yes. I am a black Pentecostal. I love the Lord! Tell me, how did you come to know Jesus?" (long conversation ensues on God) There is a rough justice here. And as an agnostic, you can put that down as an unscientific vote for the existence of God. I swear I could hear him laughing down the earpiece. "You're not really interested in Sky TV , are you?" "No." "Praise the Lord!"

Don't you just hate it when things backfire like that? Heh.

I suppose I'm simply distrustful of anything that offers absolutes of any kind. Using the scientific method rarely if ever results in absolutes - not that this stops public officials and news reporters from distilling scientific research down so much and twisting it so far that it no longer bears much resemblance to what the scientists actually put forth. No wonder the average religious joe often distrusts science the way I distrust formalized religious institutions: unless you have some smattering of scientific experience or you simply never believe anything you read from anyone who doesn't cite all their sources, which you then must read to make sure the sources are legitimate, you can get conned into thinking science is all about absolutes, what with the shit that gets passed off as science these days. It's really quite frightening. But that's a rant for another day.

Even as a fairly devout Christian I really have to applaud your moves here. People who try to spread the word that way really do need a wake-up tap from His Noodly Appendage.
