Hey, Scientologists! Looky Here!!

Tuesday February 17, 2009 Leave a comment

Recently, The Pirate Bay has featured Scientology on their homepage.

When you click on the image, you get a list of all leaked Scientology documentation, banned videos, indoctrination material, stuff they got taken off YouTube and other sites, as well as books and handwritten notes by L. Ron Hubbard, himself!

Scientologists have been vehement about the public not knowing of the inner workings of the Church. But, as user tomcruise2 says in one of his uploaded torrents

Since the Church of Scientology keeps pulling this video off of every site it appears on.. TRY TO PULL IT FROM THIS SITE, FUCKERS!!

Another interesting piece of information I found while perusing these torrents…

The complete collection of Scientology’s Operating Thetan levels. It normally costs thousands of dollars to obtain this information.

That’s right folks. Usually it takes someone like Tom Cruise to spend his millions in the Church to get his hands on this type of information. But, for an unlimited time, for $0 down and $0 per month you too can have access to this information.

Just thought I’d let everyone know. If there was any doubt as to whether or not Tom Cruise was a complete nutcase, check this video out. Your eyes shall be opened.

If you’re not familiar with BitTorrent technology and how to download this crap, click here.

Happy viewing!

Read a book. It’s good for you.

P.S.

Scientology is a CULT! (They hate it when you say that.)

Proof Dinosaurs Lived With Man? [Lying For Jesus]

Sunday October 5, 2008 14 comments

Introduction

So I came across this post last night, displayed prominently on the WordPress homepage. Proof Dinosaurs Lived With Man. Great title. How could anyone resist checking it out?

Here’s the video posited in this post as “proof” that dinosaurs lived with man…

I’m not sure about you, but I could barely stomach the first 5 minutes of this video… John Pendleton is an idiot. And by the way, what is a Chemist doing making Geological or Archeological claims? Is this some sort of argument from authority? If so, that’s a big logical no-no.

I’d left a comment on this guy’s blog, but I guess it wasn’t worth approving. I suppose it’s because I offered actual scientific evidence against his claims… this supposed “proof.”

The Scientific Refutation

Now, far be it for me to just make claims like this without evidence. Here are a few critiques of Mr. Pendleton’s works.

Critique Number 1

Critique Number 2

The interesting thing about these critiques is that there are actual references given at the end of each video, providing sources for the information posited.

This is the antithesis of Mr. Pendleton’s work. He merely makes random, religious claims, not based on his experience or work as a Chemist, but from references to the Bible. How scientific of him. Using the Bible as scientific proof – when the Bible has yet to be scientifically verified to contain any historical truth.

Not once does he offer a reference where you could look up the information he’s expecting us to believe. We are expected to just take his word for it. Not very scientific. Is he even an actual scientist? Or does he just own a white coat?

Even the pictures Pendleton offered in his video are not evidence. He is a Chemist. He is not qualified to analyze Archaeological data. It would not be prudent of one to simply trust his opinion over someone who is specially trained in the required field. Just because he has a degree in Chemistry does not mean that he has a degree in everything. You can’t just take his word because he’s a scientist with a white coat on.

Conclusion

The religious community is very loose with their definition of “proof,” and what they consider to be proof of a claim. In particular, Christians are more than willing to lie for Jesus. Why? I couldn’t begin to guess, since it violates one of their precious commandments. And for a scientific reference, see Exodus 20:16 (KJV):

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

Now, there might be a fuzzy line here. Is Mr. Pendleton intentionally misleading people with his lies, along with the likes of Ken Ham, or that jail-bird Kent Hovind (an excellent example of a Jesus Liar)? Or, is he really ignorant as to the lack of veracity of his claims? Well, to use an expression, that’s between him and God.

Whether he’s intentionally lying, or just ignorant of the facts, Mr. Pendleton is, to say the least, a disgrace to the scientific community. I would no more trust the words of Mr. Pendleton than I would, say, of that mythical Devil those guys always speak of.

The most important thing to take away from this is the fact that you can’t just take someone’s word for it. If they are making claims, especially scientific in nature, you cannot just take their words at face value. Ask questions. Look for evidence to back up their claims. At least ask for references.

To take one guy’s opinion over the consensus of the entire scientific community is ignorant and intellectually dishonest. It boils down to a standard of proof, and whether or not proof even matters to you.

Read a book. It’s good for you.

John "One Thing At A Time" McCain For President?

Friday September 26, 2008 Leave a comment

Just watch this first… McCain lies to Letterman about why he can’t be on the show (9/24/2008).

So, McCain has to be in Washington to “save the economy.” Yet, there he is being interviewed, live, with Katie Couric?

Apparently, John McCain has to cancel his campaign because the economy is failing. Isn’t part of being the President being able to handle more than one situation at a time?

I have to say that I was never really a huge fan of David Letterman, but he’s moved right on up there in the “Late Show” favorites category. He really let loose on McCain.

I mean, really? What is McCain thinking? He bails, last minute, on Letterman to do an interview with Couric. He’s suspending his campaign to “save the economy,” and he wants to delay his debate with Obama.

What’s going on here? This doesn’t sound like a “take action” type of man. As the Daily Journal article says…

After all, the leader of the free world may have to meet with congressional leaders to negotiate key legislation, respond to a military flare-up in the Middle East, and then quickly and effectively deal with an economic crisis during any given 48-hour period or less.

Is McCain going to tell the world to “hold on” because there’s too much going on all at once?

I submit that this is not the man we should be looking to as our next President. Letterman makes a great point: Where is Palin in all of this???

Read a book. It’s good for you.
