500 Christians Burned – FAKE IMAGE or STORY or BOTH

Since then, the original source and I have done some more research and it seems highly unlikely that this picture is of a recent church burning. Allegedly, the image is of people burned in a gas explosion. I found this page that linked to this page; you will observe that the latter page no longer works. I am sure some more sleuthing would allow me to get that missing information, but the fact that the former page is from a full year before the report I posted, and has the same image, strongly suggests that the two do not go together.

On the usefulness of Rocks

The best part of rocks is the fact that it rhymes with socks. I say that because as a child I read a book that had a fox with a problem with rocks in his socks, and it was a favorite story of mine, and the story would have been impossible if rocks sounded like something else, like petra. At any rate, this proves that rocks can also be useful in literature–and satire.

UPDATE: I have determined that this image DOES NOT go with this event, so I think it unlikely that the event itself did not happen. I await further clarifications. In the meantime, the post remains the same as it was for posterity’s sake.  Details. What happened in Sandy Hook was a horror upon horror, but […]

No Lawsuit Against PZ Myers is Forthcoming

It is not my purpose to ‘litigate’ this matter in this post. It is my desire to get this out in the open. PZ Myers is a professor for a tax-payer supported state university in Minnesota, and as a putative academic, one expects a certain level of professionalism and integrity. I have decided that I, personally, should not pursue this further. As a citizen of the United States, I have the right to protect myself under the law. As a citizen of another Country, I have to conduct myself under different laws, and I have decided that this particular one falls under ‘do not resist an evil person.’

Found another site mentioning the Christian post article

http://theexpositor.wordpress.com/2007/08/01/church-is-producing-atheists/ I really wish the Christian post had put in a link to my website. The article is generating a fair amount of interest and reaction, but without a direct way to get in touch with me, a fuller explanation on my solution to the mess will be hard to find. And here is another, […]
