#0007 RRS Newsletter for June 6, 2007

hellfiend666's picture

I'll start off today with a couple links to a couple cool astronomy sites I've found. This first one actually has three levels of difficulty, beginer, intermediate, and advanced for all information. The advanced setting isn't too "advanced" but the site is pretty informative, none-the-less.

Windows to the Universe

A Practical Guide to Astronomy

Here's a site I found long before I joined the RRS. I have yet to see it from any of the other members, so I figured I'd share it with you all. I nearly forgot about it untill I was looking through my bookmarks.

God is for Suckers!

This is a trippy link I received from a good friend in the RRS. It gives you some idea of the enormous scale that we talk about in discussions involving the galaxy and it's place in the universe. Thank you, Eva.

Universcale

Now for a few videos. This first one is from another good friend in the RRS. Youtubers may know him as g0at.

A two parter from g0at.

Here's a great one from the youtuber supexcellency

...and what the hell, one more from this crazy dude!

Now, on to the most interesting bulletins I've received today. Enjoy

This was received on my personal page, and I had to share it. Thanx go to Keith, even though he's not on this freiends list, lol.

CNN becoming a willing sponsor of Theocracy (part 1)

Coalition of the Willing!!!

What utter crap...we've had to endure the RIGHT WING of the theocratic movement...NOW, here comes the LEFT WING fresh on the heels of the failure of the Right to try it "THEIR WAY".

If you didn't have a chance to watch the CNN "Faith Forum" it's still airing live right now on CNN....Edwards, Obama, and Clinton have already been interviewed.

CNN becoming a willing sponsor of Theocracy (part 2)

This should be a wake up call for all non-theists in this country,
that the religious LEFT think, and believe very strongly that they can do it "liberal, progressive theocracy" better as opposed to the current Right WING theocracy employed by the BUSH administration. INSTEAD of a James Dobson, Tony Perkins, Ted Haggard, and Fox NEWS sitting in on meetings in the White House, it will be JIM WALLIS (who?), Amy Sullivan (who?), Tony Campolo (who?), Rabbi Michael Tikkun (who?), Rev Al Sharpton (we know him), and Rev Jesse Jackson (we definitely know him) and Mara Vanderslice. OH Don't worry about the names you don't know yet...YOU WILL get to know these names in time. It will replacing of the guard of the low hanging fruit, and slow moving targets of the Right Wing Fundamentalists, with the more seductive, attractive, BIG TENT, we love everyone including gays, lesbians, immigrants, and even atheists.

CNN becoming a willing sponsor of Theocracy (part 3)

They, (the LIBERAL, PROGRESSIVE dogmatic LEFT wing of the Religious Faith) have been waiting for their chances to gain power, and do it their way.

You have been warned America...and I will continue to say that these liberals who are ultra P.C. and ultra Can't we all just get along Ideological Giants, are 1 MILLION times as dangerous and seductive as any fundamentalist like Robertson and Falwell.

I have written much about this already (mainly b/c I've seen it first hand), and was once the Northern Virginia leader for Voice of the Faithful...the leading group in "MY Way is the best way, b/c it's ultra Politically Correct"....

CNN becoming a willing sponsor of Theocracy (part 4)

Those three hours was easily the most over the top public sponsorship of judging people based on their religious practice I've EVER seen...and I've been watching Fox News for a long time...

CNN should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.

Dinosaur Jesus

This is a video showing the "positive teachings" of the Koran. Please write or comment me on what you think about it. People always ask me why I'm so against Religion, This should explain a few things.

Our Solar System: Evidence for Creation?
Nope.

This is some shitty logic. This guy tries to use evolution to refer to astrophysics and not biology. And the sad part is some people think iit makes sense because he comments on how he knows he's misusing it in the 1st clip. Has everyone taken some sort of crazy pill? And once again arguing for ID doesn't explain how such a designer would have to be the god of the Abrahamic religions. I feel sorry for this guy. He seems like he really was a rational scientist at one point before he became another victim of indoctrination.

Mr. Parris makes weak arguments, like the rotation of Venus is going in opposite direction than earth. So that proves want? Nothing! He's a joke. this was taken at the Seattle Creation Conference, 2006.

[ Work by Alexandre Correia and Jacques Lascar at the Paris Observatory shows that the interaction of Venus's tidal forces and thick atmosphere caused its rotation to behave chaotically in the past. It turns out that even if Venus started with normal rotation, it would probably end up with retrograde rotation. This can happen either by the axis moving (the "north" pole going to the south), or by the rotation slowing to zero, and then starting up again in the opposite direction. There is no need for any other explanation.]
