help needed


The greatest work you will ever do is charity; the most divine work you will ever do will be changing people’s perception of God, while you’re doing charity.”
― Shannon L. Alder

I am almost certain Shannon doesn’t mean what I mean by changing people’s perception of god, but what the heck, it will do for my purposes today.

First, to my friends from the US of A- Happy Independence day. I know it was on the 4th. A day later makes little difference I think.

Now, it is known that I make a hobby of tearing apart people’s beliefs in benevolent deities. I spare no one, even the deists. And it is not just religion that I have my guns aimed. It is pointed at tribalists, patriots, creationists, freewillers, anti-LGBT rights activists and so on.

Being human, I am as vulnerable as the next person to confirmation bias, blind spots and ridiculous beliefs. As the person holding the belief, I could be blind to it being ridiculous, I wouldn’t hold it. And this is where you all come in. Those of you who have interacted with me for sometime now could have identified some of these blind spots. Can we be all nice and point some of this out. I don’t promise to buy beer for your help 😛

Happy Sunday everyone and thank you for your help.

  1. As a fellow last prophet, I must confirm with a great bias that you have no blind spots, flaws, or weaknesses. To say you did would weaken your stance as a last prophet of the Great Golden Boot from whom no ass is spared a good kicking should it deserve one. $Amen$

    Perhaps you believe you exist as some enduringly instantiated, self-like entity Om? I really would not know of course, though what say you my friend?

    I don’t think I can help Mak. I have so many blind spots, it will be a case of the blind leading the blind. LOL! I have no perceptions on this ‘God’ because there is no such thing. We could talk about Aliens though. 😆

    Found a blind spot! (Do I get a beer now?) Cold? 24 degrees? 75 in Fahrenheit – that’s according to the internet at least. I think we need to get a Canadian in here to explain to you the meaning of the word “cold.”

    When I was in Quebec, my ex was friendly with a guy from Morocco. He said that he arrived in Quebec in early February. His first thought upon disembarking from the plane was, “Now I know what hell feels like.”

    There was a Frenchman who complained about the bad French spoken by the Canadians, in particular an expression, “Il fait frette.” “What is ‘frette’?” he asked. That’s not French. By the time winter came around he said, “Now I understand. Il fait frette.”

      You will get a beer, two beers at whatever temperature.
      When some friends of mine were coming over a year ago in June, I told them Nairobi gets quite cold in June and July. They said they have lived in sub zero temperatures there is no way Nairobi can be cold. At the time of departure, they were telling a slightly different story but I get what you mean.
      And that video has put it all in perspective. I withdraw my comments

      If you really want to know what cold is, try skinny dipping in Antarctica. My brother wintered over at New Zealand’s Scott Base several decades ago and as is the custom there, he took part in the annual skinny dip just before the sun disappears for four months over winter. A chainsaw is used to cut a hole through the metre or more of ice shelf to access the Ross Sea beneath. He reckons the mad dash from the hole back to the buildings would better the speeds of the best Olympic sprinters.

    Wish I could help but I’m currently experiencing fibro fogginess so I’m of no use to anyone. If the fog lifts I’ll let you know what I see. 🙂

    No beer? Friends who help friends get beer Mak!

    I used to think you were a tad too kind to the apologists, wankers, and lost causes. I believe I have noticed a slight shift towards being a little short with the nonsense. Welcome to the club!

    As far as holes in your game, your reasoning skills are just fine.

      I think after some point, talking to apologists gets to one’s nerves. They repeat the same claims couched only in different sentence structures.
      You will get beer, cold beer my friend and BBQ
