:: A quote from [info]polyanarch posted by [info]torasama in [info]metaquotes:

Christianity: The belief that life and all of the universe is a gift from an imaginary magic spirit who lives in space and is angry at all humans because a woman he made of spare ribs was talked into eating the fruit from a magic tree by a talking snake. This is the same magic spirit who later came down and impregnated a virgin so he could have a son who would be killed and turned into a zombie. This was so that people could eat the meat and drink the blood from his zombie body and be saved from the stigma of what that rib-woman did by eating the magic fruit that made the magic spirit mad in the first place. Only by eating this magic zombie flesh and blood, and telepathically pledging their lives to him, can the descendants of the spare-rib woman be forgiven and follow his son whom he sent to save them from himself.

:: An excellent bit on friending and LJ by [info]skreidle, found at [info]fragbert:

It occurs to me that you may just want to lay out some ground rules...about how this LJ is for you first, audience second; that there will be some days you don't post, and that's just life, please don't email/comment/txt about the lack o' dailypost; to keep the drama out; and that when you boil it down, listing someone as a "friend" on LJ only means two things: 1) 'I currently enjoy reading what you write', and 2) 'I'm allowing you to see my Friends-Only posts.' Anything beyond that is icing."

:: From [info]antitheism, Doctor pushes science over religion. (from media.www.gwhatchet.com) WIN:

Schempp, who holds a Ph.D. from Brown University, said he is a firm believer in the role of science and its dominance over religion. He is an accomplished physicist and was involved in the development of the MRI.

He said devotion to science is what made it difficult to believe in religion.

"The Bible is not a book of truth - no more than any other book written 2,000 years ago," he said.

It is because of these feelings that Schempp has devoted much of his life to limiting prejudice against atheists and increasing the separation of church and state. He finds the idea of forcing young children to recite prayers to be ludicrous, as they are doing so without meaning.

"Robots are neither patriotic nor spiritual," he said.

Ultimately, Schempp said he sees himself not as a critic of religion but as a firm believer in the First Amendment and the freedom of choice.

He told the audience to remember, "The Constitution mentions religion only twice, and both times 'no' is attached to it."

:: From [info]zevshir, this gem of an April Fools' joke:

This is too funny.
The PA Wing website (www.pawingcap.com) has been updated for April Fool's Day. Here's a sample:

Notice of Proposed Regulation
Wednesday, 01 Apr 2009, by JColgan

Part 2, Section 972 (a) 1 (c)

Section I
No CAP member, or person or persons acting on the direction or suggestion or supervision of a CAP member, may try, or attempt to try, or make attempt to try to comprehend or understand any or all, in whole or in part, of the herin mentioned Regulation, except as authorized by the National Commander or an agent appointed by, or inspected by the National Commander.

Section II
If a CAP member or any group of members becomes aware of or realizes, or detects, or discovers, finds that he/she, or they are understanding or have been beginning to understand the Regulations, they must immediately, within three (3) days, notify, in writing, in triplicate, the National Legal Officer using CAPF 129a, Notice of Impending Comprehension.

Section III
Upon receipt of the above-mentioned notice of impending comprehension, the National Legal Officer shall immediately rewrite the Regulation that is in imminent danger of being understood. Such rewriting shall be done in such a manner to eliminate any further hazard of comprehension.

Section IV
The National Commander may, at his/her discretion, require the offending CAP member or members to attend remedial instruction on Regulations until such time that the CAP member or members is too confused to be capable of understanding anything.

:: This gem from [info]metaquotes:

On that topic, it occurs to me that Easter is truly the original holiday of the Living Dead (one of the originals, anyways-- I'm sure there are older mythologies too). And that, therefore, it ought to be taken over by the zombie contingent and adopted as one of their holy days. So remember, kids, leave out a nice basket of brains for Jesus so he won't come after yours!

:: From [info]quirkybird, a lovely poem called "Woe".

Woe!

It is true, our tribe is similar to the bees,
It gathers honey of wisdom, carries it, stores it in honeycombs.
I am able to roam for hours
Through the labyrinth of the main library, floor to floor.
But yesterday, looking for the words of masters and prophets,
I wandered into high regions
That are visited by practically no one.
I would open a book and could decipher nothing.
For letters faded and disappeared from the pages.
Woe! I exclaimed-so it comes to this?
Where are you, venerable ones, with your beards and wigs,
Your nights spent by a candle, griefs of your wives?
So a message saving the world is silenced forever?
At your home it was the day of making preserves.
And your dog, sleeping by the fire, would wake up,
Yawn, and look at you, as if knowing.

:: And some RBR fun that I posted to [info]metaquotes. :)
