random stories from around the world

Some of the things expressed in this post shouldn’t be taken seriously!

Somewhere in Sudan a woman was shot dead in the head for failing to wear a tent. Now Somali is one of the hot places inhabited by men on this side of the Sahara. One wonders how Allah would be so offended at seeing the faces reported to have been created in its image?

On Tuesday, thanks to the Muslims we had a holiday. Can they fast more, not that I care as long as there is a holiday at the end. This part of the post is addressed to those who think Africa is one big country and places like Kenya are cities.We have atheists in this neck of the woods, and no we don’t live in fear of the religious. It is safe to be an atheist here. I think most people are creationists though. So I have these atheist friends we decide to have a meet up. We are not the group with the president :D, so that position is still open for hire. Any successful candidate shall have to pay us.

We resolved among other things, that since the media houses as currently constituted would not help us in furthering our atheist agenda especially of eating christian babies, we will have our own TV station. We have to this end planned to petition all churches to contributed an atheism tax of 10% on all their daily collections. This will go along way in financing our TV programmes and other engagements aimed at making people less religious.

I am introducing a new author, Joe, who, because he is older than I writes so well and because he is slightly tall uses big words a lot more often. Please let us all be up standing and welcome him with a hearty clap. He is such a gentleman, good natured and long time friend. I think even gods would like him.

Exodus 2

The Birth of Moses

The story of the absurd continues with the birth of Moses[ he is not named thus until Pharaoh’s daughter draws him from the water. I would like to know what his parents called him during the three months he was indoors]. We are told he is born of a Levite, the mother keeps him in the house for three months, I think she was waiting for the Pharaoh to change his mind about murdering innocent male babies. When pharaoh doesn’t change she makes a wicker basket

Wicker basket, baby Moses home for a few days or hours, I don’t know which

, water proofs it with tar and pitch then puts a cover, puts the baby inside and off she goes to the river where she places her sister under guard. I don’t know about you, unless this basket is sound proofed, it will not be long before the kid starts wailing either for being sleepy, hungry, lonely or wet. As fate would have it though, Pharaoh’s daughter and her maids come to the river, find the kid and sends for a Hebrew woman who happens to be the boy’s mother to take care of the kid. If she already has handmaids, why would she send for another? What benefit does she get from keeping this baby? What is in it for her?

He grows to become an adult in this chapter[ now that is growing too fast], kills an Egyptian and hides the body,attempts to mediate between to fighting Hebrews and discovers his past crime in known. The Pharaoh issues an APB, he runs away to Midian where like others before[ remember Jake and Ike] him he finds damsels at a well help them with watering the cattle, they report the matter home and he gets a wife and begets children or is it a son only. How perfectly simple can life get?

I think this scribes knew their god wasn’t omniscient and so they write at the end of this chapter that at the death of the Pharaoh, the children of Israel[I thought all the generations if the family of Jake aka Israel perished] cried out for help and the Elohim of Abe, Ike and Jake remembered his covenant. Now you may ask yourself, how could he forget this one chosen family of his? Was he playing dice or did he take a walk to watch Gor Mahia FC and AFC Leopards, just asking?
