“god created us in his image”






“so, god must be a sexless, single celled organism”






“we evolved, but god never changes”
“so god must still be a single celled organism”
“with three personalities”
“and he must be able to replicate, because he personally became a male sperm cell to fertilized one of Mary’s eggs”
“but the son existed before he was born”
“then he impregnated his own mother, even though she was effectively married to another man”
“and even though god had said that the penalty for adultery must be stoning to death”
“Then, Jesus physically assended to heaven, after his resurection”
“and although one with god, sits on a throne at the Father’s right hand side”
“So Jesus is a middle-eastern man, in his 30’s, and his father is a single celled organism, and the Holy Spirit is a bird, and they are all one”
“and both Jesus and the Holy Spirit, although both god with the father, don’t know when Jesus is coming back to earth, only the father knows”
“even though they are all one”
“and even though they are everywhere, and technically already on earth right now”
“not with his physical body, Jesus must leave that somewhere else”
“except, some people say that they have seen it”
“but people can say anything they like. You can’t prove anyone’s fantasy wrong”
“That’s why there are over 30,000 varieties of Christianity”
“and it is true”
“which one”
“no one knows”
“at least god got people to write a book after Jesus left”
“there are no original documents”
“doesn’t matter. Almost no one reads it. It’s only used to deny rights from minorities”
“and those that read it, gloss over all the contradictions, absurdities, and immorality”
“a lot of it is allegorical”
“which parts”
“all the crazy parts”
“best to not think about it”
“sure makes sense, though”
“sure does”



There’s nothing that compares to having a personal relationship with an infinitely complex, beyond spacetime dove that sits at the right hand side of a single-cell God that exists everywhere at all times though. Can someone draw some pictures/cartoons to better illustrate this?

So I paused one of DarkMatter2525's videos on YouTube, and Jeffrey's pose was too good to not make into a meme. Introducing: Condescending Jeffrey. :D

I just saw this on a forum. Part of me is shocked, another part is laughing hysterically, and another good part of my mind pities the utter delusions of this guy.

A short horror story.

I liked the horror story of “President Santorum” better. :P This one’s still good though.

Heaven is hotter than hell

If you don’t like the heat outside you might want to think twice about attending church this weekend because HEAVEN IS HOTTER THAN HELL.

The temperature of heaven can be rather accurately computed. Our authority is the Bible, Isaiah 30:26 reads, “Moreover, the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold as the light of seven days.”

Thus, heaven receives from the moon as much radiation as the earth does from the sun, and in addition seven times seven (forty nine) times as much as the earth does from the sun, or fifty times in all. The light we receive from the moon is one ten-thousandth of the light we receive from the sun, so we can ignore that. 

With this data we can compute the temperature of heaven: The radiation falling on heaven will heat it to the point where the heat lost by radiation is just equal to the heat received by radiation. 

In other words, heaven loses fifty times as much heat as the earth by radiation. Using the Stefan-Boltzmann fourth power law for radiation
(H/E)4 = 50 where E is the absolute temperature of the earth, 300°K (273+27). This gives H the absolute temperature of heaven, as 798° absolute (525°C).

The exact temperature of hell cannot be computed but it must be less than 444.6°C, the temperature at which brimstone or sulfur changes from a liquid to a gas. Revelations 21:8: But the fearful and unbelieving… shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone.” A lake of molten brimstone [sulfur] means that its temperature must be at or below the boiling point, which is 444.6°C. (Above that point, it would be a vapor, not a lake.)

We have then, temperature of heaven, 525°C. Temperature of hell, less than 445°C. 

Therefore heaven is hotter than hell.
