Can a holy book be written via wiki?

with one comment

If the Book of Genesis is any indication the answer is a glorious yes:

2:17. Darwin said, “Let there be change from generation to generation in a population’s inherited characteristics, or traits. Let minor random changes in the genes that encode these traits cause organisms to have slightly different traits than their parents. Let organisms with traits that help them to survive and reproduce tend to have more offspring. In doing so, they will pass more copies of these beneficial traits on to the next generation. Let advantageous traits become more common in each generation, and let disadvantageous traits become rarer.”
2:18. God said, “Well, Charles, it’s a nifty idea, but I’m working on a one-week schedule here, and what you’re proposing will take at least double that time. Maybe even triple. Sorry.”
2:19. God said, “Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit after their kind, with its seed in it, on the earth;” and it was so.
2:20. The earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, with its seed in it, after their kind; God smoked the grass, and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, futher on.

I can’t possibly say anything that could add to the awesomeness of that headline. Here’s the link to the story.

Quite possibly the greatest anti-drug ad ever made

With advice like this, it’s a miracle every kid who grew up in the 80’s didn’t start doing drugs.

Turtle Power!

Church "attacked" on Ash Wednesday

leave a comment »

This would be pretty funny in its own right:

Ash Wednesday Mass Interrupted by Porno Recordings
(Warning! Link goes to Fox News! May not be safe for intelligence!)

The Roman Catholic Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi was evacuated during noon Mass on Ash Wednesday when three CD players duct-taped to the bottom of pews began blaring sexually explicit language.

Mind you, I don’t condone this sort of prank. It’s stupid and immature. But the fact that the Church felt it had to evacuate because of pornography? That’s just great.

But this is the part that makes the story rise to the level of hilarious (emphasis mine):

Church staff personnel removed the CD players, took them to the basement and called police, who sent a bomb squad, Johnson said.

The bomb squad blew up two of the players on a grassy area near the church, then kept the third one for analysis after determining the players were not dangerous.

Brilliant!
