Bakheet al Anzi’s New Year Party

2 01 2016

Two things to remember, every religion has superstitions about the good and bad things you do and in Islam you have the two angels sitting on your shoulders with note books.

You do not only earn brownie points during your life on Earth, your sins also get recorded by an angel. The angel on the right shoulder notes down your brownie points, and the one on your left makes notes of your sins.

They are always there…. with their notebooks.

The second thing to remember is that angels cannot enter a house where there is a dog.

This opens up a loophole…
As long as you are in a house with a dog your deeds do not get recorded….

Ps, you are also not allowed to celebrate new year…
But then… who’s to know?

Cthulhu-Carrot

29 03 2012

Guess what I found in The Tarq’s big bag of carrots???

A Cthulhu Carrot!

I am going to sell it on E-bay! If you can get a couple of thousand dollars for a piece of toast with the face of Jesus, I could surely get a few dollars for a carrot which is an exact portrait of Cthulhu:mrgreen:

I’ve listed it, click here to watch (and bid) on my Cthulhu carrot!





Aafke’s wager versus Pascal’s wager

11 03 2012

Pascal’s wager:

For those who do not know, in the seventeenth century the mathematician Blaise Pascal formulated his infamous pragmatic argument for belief in God in his ”Pensées”. The argument runs as follows:

If you erroneously believe in God, you lose nothing (assuming that death is the absolute end), whereas if you correctly believe in God, you gain everything (eternal bliss). But if you correctly disbelieve in God, you gain nothing (death ends all), whereas if you erroneously disbelieve in God, you lose everything (eternal damnation).

How should you bet? Regardless of any evidence for or against the existence of God, Pascal argued that failure to accept God’s existence risks losing everything with no payoff on any count. The best bet, then, is to accept the existence of God. There have been several objections to the wager: that a person cannot simply will himself to believe something that is evidently false to him; that the wager would apply as much to belief in the wrong God as it would to disbelief in all gods, leaving the the believer in any particular god in the same situation as the atheist or agnostic; that God would not reward belief in him based solely on hedging one’s bets; and so on…

I find Pascal’s wager stupid and supercillious, here is a better alternative, which btw I do not take much credit for, as I formulated the basics of it when I was about 8 years old.

Aafke’s wager

If you are, due to nonexistent evidence, not convinced that there is an all loving, compassionate, all-powerful invisible skydaddy, then you should not waste your time with silly immoral religions, but you should spend your life spreading sweetness and light and trying to make the world a better place.

How should you bet? On the ”Spreading Sweetness and Light” bit. If there is an all-loving, compassionate, all-powerful, invisible sky daddy you lose nothing, but gain everything, the invisible sky daddy will not mind you never believed for he/she never put out any proof and you have been a good caring human being so you will always be in.

But if you have been doing bad things, even though they were endorsed in some holy book, a truly good and honest invisible sky daddy would take you to task for it, so you gained nothing, and lost everything, by following rules which you knew  were immoral but you liked them anyway and you justified them because some bronze age barbarian brute wrote them in some book.

So whose the clever thinker here?

Me, not Blaise!

More about what is good and what is bad in the next post.





Adopt an atheist!

10 12 2011

When I first heard about this I thought it was brilliant:

Catholic League president Bill Donohue explains why the Catholic League is starting a new initiative aimed at atheists:

Approximately 80 percent of Americans are Christian, and 96 percent celebrate Christmas. Of the 20 percent who are not Christian, non-believers make up the largest segment, though the number of self-identified atheists is tiny. David Silverman, president of American Atheists, knows this to be true, which is why he is frantically trying to inflate his base. “We want people to realize that there may be atheists in their family,” he told the New York Times, “even if those atheists don’t even know they are atheists.”

We think there is some merit in David’s idea, even if he has things backwards, as usual. Today we are launching our “Adopt An Atheist” campaign, the predicate of which is, “We want atheists to realize that there may be Christians in their community, even if those Christians don’t even know they are Christian.”

Here’s what our campaign entails. We are asking everyone to contact the American Atheist affiliate in his area , letting them know of your interest in “adopting” one of them. All it takes is an e-mail. Let them know of your sincere interest in working with them to uncover their inner self. They may be resistant at first, but eventually they may come to understand that they were Christian all along.

If we hurry, these closeted Christians can celebrate Christmas like the rest of us. As an added bonus, they will no longer be looked upon as people who “believe in nothing, stand for nothing and are good for nothing.”

So I thought, excellent, if that means free food, dinners and extra Christmas presents I am all for it!
Please adopt me!!!!
But then I went to the site and saw this:

And there went all my hopes of free food and a warm welcome. They want the children! They don’t want intelligent grown up well balanced happy atheists, they want the children! They young, the easily influenced, the gullible, the ones they can still scare out of their with with their dark tales of human sacrifice and eternal torture in hell.

And oh dear, that last sentence shattered all my ideas of Christian tolerance and love for their next ones. Instead the usual silly lies and nonsense about atheists. I’m not going to dissect that nasty bit of propaganda, I am going to set up my Christmas tree.





Eat more cucumbers, carrots, zucchini and bananas!

7 12 2011

The latest on religious improvement: finally the Muslim clerics encourage the men to help out in the kitchen and cook and serve the women!

CAIRO: An Islamic cleric residing in Europe said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any “sexual thoughts.” The unnamed sheikh, who was featured in an article on el-Senousa news, was quoted saying that if women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve. He said that these fruits and vegetables “resemble the male penis” and hence could arouse women or “make them think of sex.”

He also added carrots and zucchini to the list of forbidden foods for women.

The sheikh was asked how to “control” women when they are out shopping for groceries and if holding these items at the market would be bad for them. The cleric answered saying this matter is between them and God.
Answering another question about what to do if women in the family like these foods, the sheikh advised the interviewer to take the food and cut it for them in a hidden place so they cannot see it.

Islamically acceptable cucumber :

Islamically unacceptable cucumber:

Now if I was married to a Muslim I would change my diet, and refuse to eat anything else but Cucumber salad, cucumber sandwiches, carrot ”stamppot”, zucchini dishes, and bananas on yoghurt for dessert. All of which would have to be prepared for me by hubby…

On the other hand, if I was the husband I would only want to eat Cucumber salad, cucumber sandwiches, carrot ”stamppot”, zucchini dishes, and bananas on yoghurt for dessert, but I wouldn’t cut them up for my wife… you never know… maybe after dealing with all these sexually arousing vegetables there would be room for a second dessert…
