Religion makes you dumb

Ok.....this is by far one of the funniest things I've seen recently.



Gawd! I love creationists.

go....chamba!! Well most americans should be squirming in shame for what their countrymen are doing..

Sunil said...

heh.....vishnu....looks like a lot of them are proud to be against Chamba :-))

Vishnu Vyas said...

Hmm.. only american culture can produce both mind-bogglingly brilliant people and those who wear their stupidity on their sleeve and are proud of it.

Go Chumba! Or Chamba! I'm pro ape!

Actually its a little easy to pick on the Americans here because they are more outspoken. It would be an equally rewarding experience if somebody could go out on the streets in India or Mexico asking the same question.

anonymous........I have little doubt that the results in India will be far, far, faaaaar more hillarious.

There isn't an evolution vs. creation debate in India......because most people haven't even heard of the word "evolution".......

But America stands alone amongst "fully developed" countries with almost complete literacy, and relatively high standards of living, education and income, in producing some incredibly talented and brilliant individuals, while also retaining some of the highest levels of ignorance and blind belief.

And anyway.......I wasn't picking on anyone. I was too busy laughing.

Sunil, somehow I feel the title is not appropriate. "R" does not make one dumb. It is how we percieve/grasp/embrace things that makes us dumb. Personally I feel that Scientists can never be completely Atheists, because they always have to struggle with the acceptance of non-superficial. ;)

(Eg: the Indian President http://indianfriendfinder.com/blog/672/post_17184.html)

An instance of why the "R" word is dangerous in discussion is here(look at the comments):

My thoughts only.

Cheers,

anil......I looked through that discussion, and it was sad to read so many hostile views. I think the title of this post is appropriate....

Anyway, this was just a lighter post....so lighten up, and see the humor here.

And as far as struggling with the acceptance of non-superficial......a good scientist will try to understand how it works, and not leave it to "god". Anyway, I don't think athiesm came in to this post at all :-)

Once I played silkroad, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have silkroad gold. He gave me some sro gold, he said that I could buy silkroad online gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some silk road gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell cheap silkroad gold to anyone who want.

I like a game which needs to use maple mesos, when you do not have
mesos, you must borrow
cheap mesos from friends, or you buy
maplestory mesos. If you get
maple story mesos, you can continue this game.
