Ignorance and Fear in Amerika
Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.
Isn’t it curious how the christianists are willing to jump on the science bandwagon when it suits them? And even if the science is still sketchy and inconclusive, if it can possibly seal their agenda, they are all over it. There is conclusive evidence that the world is round and revolves around the sun, yet you don’t hear about christianists jumping on that bandwagon.
And have you ever wondered why the Southern Baptists are so crazy? Look no further than their leaders.
Case in point- R. Albert Mohler Jr, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kentucky put forth in his blog that if science can prove that gayness is biological, then there ought to be a way to “cure” it before a baby is born… say with a patch the mother can wear on her belly that would alter the baby’s hormones. Mohler says it would be biblically sound to alter a baby genetically before it’s born. Is he suggesting that God made a mistake when he invented gayness? Isn’t that a sin? Perhaps God created gayness in order to help scientists segregate the “stupid gene” as displayed so prominantly by religio-fascists.
Are the christianists funding scientists to discover the gene that makes people eat shell fish, an abomination that comes before the abomination of gayness in Leviticus? Perhaps Mr Mohler should check with the Catholics who have supercharged baptisms that wipe away original sin.
I love it how the xtians will deny science like evolution but will use science to their own advantage. I remember watching Jesus Camp where there was this guy lecturing to children about how they shouldn’t believe in science and he was using a laptop and a projector to present his lecture. How fucking hypocritical is that? Don’t believe in the science of evolution and deny science in general but yet take the advantages that science has brought to you? Just like the bible. They pick and choose what they want to use to their own personal agenda and the rest they ignore. The old testament is full of stupid laws that through the miracles of modern medicines, science and technology no longer applies. hell, the reason why Jews don’t eat pig is because pig rotted way too fast and got Trichinella. now with modern refrigeration that can be contained a lot more easily. Maybe the bible thumpers who don’t believe in science needs to throw away their refrigerators and live pre-electricity. Heck, they all should live like Quakers.
I didn’t walk today. I didn’t feel like it. Tomorrow I am working an over night shift so I won’t be walking tomorrow either. Tomorrow is weigh in day too. I am scared.
1 cup unbleached white flour
1/4 cup teff flour
2 Tbsp. vegan sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/8 tsp. ground coriander
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1 1/4 cups vanilla soy milk
2-3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1. Mix all dry ingredients together.
2. Whisk in wet ingredients until relatively smooth. A few lumps are OK. Don’t overmix, as this can make the pancakes a little tough.
3. Brush some oil onto a pan and heat over medium heat for about 30 seconds.
4. Drop the batter onto the pan. When the top starts to bubble just slightly, flip it and heat for a short while longer until both sides are light brown. Brush the pan with oil before each new set of pancakes and note that cooking time will get progressively shorter as the pan heats up.
5. Serve and garnish however you like it.
Today on my way to work I was on Roosevelt and waiting for the light on 49th st / Bay Side bridge and I swear to Earth Mother that there were at least five cars that were turning on to Roosevelt well after the light turned green. Sickens me. That intersection needs a camera.
My schedule changed again today. Now I have Monday and Tuesdays off. Fucking sucks because I had something planned on April 1, and now I have to use one of my personal days to do it when it should have been a normal day off. Really frustrating. This is twice in a month and a half that they have randomly switched my days off without any consultation or heads up. Luckily there was availability to allow me to take the day off. I would have probably forced the day off anyway since I have already spent money to go to see Dan Piraro.
Oh, and my ears are all feeling pressure, like they need to be popped. I hope I am not getting an infection. They started feeling this way yesterday and today it is worse. I can hardly hear out of my left ear.
