Did you know followers of Rastafarianism worship a Father and Savior duo like Christianity?
In this case, God is Jah, who became incarnate in Jesus (who was black); Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I was the messiah.

Thank you for helping us eat in North Carolina! We're given to understand that the local delicacies of road braised possum and gravy covered fried lard don't come cheap - especially if you want a Mountain Dew... which we're given to understand not ordering is tantamount to shitting on someone's lawn...

A New Pastor Feeds His Members With Vehicle Engine Cleaning Fluid - http://bit.ly/2j9WqG9 
  • The Daveyton pastor, generally called Prophet Theo Bongani Maseko of the Breath of Christ Ministries, reportedly asked his congregants to drink a vehicle engine cleaning fluid to be saved and healed.
  • In an interview with news reporters last week, Maseko confirmed he had made his congregants drink the chemical in order to “demonstrate the power of God”
“When we pray over anything, its poison dies. So it can’t harm people. Nothing happened, no one has been to hospital,” he said as he further noted that those members who took the vehicle engine cleaning fluid had been “saved, healed and delivered”. He backed up his claims by citing Bible verses.  “Jesus spat on the ground and made mud. He took that mud and smeared it on the eyes of a blind man and, instantly, that blindness was healed. Mark 16 v 17-18 says ‘in My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover’,” he quoted.

Cheating Principal Who Attributed Kids’ High Test Scores to Prayer Receives Harsh Punishment - http://bit.ly/2j9SWU3 
  • Back in 2014, in Mississippi’s Clarksdale Municipal School District, teachers noticed that their students, whose standardized test scores were through the roof, weren’t performing like superstars in the classroom.
“The irregularities are very clear,” said Oakhurst teacher Alberto Aquino. “I am not saying there is cheating going on (at Heidelberg). I am saying that the scores are not matching up, and every teacher in this school knows it. Every teacher in this district knows it.” 
  • Heidelberg Principal Lowanda Tyler-Jones denies any cheating occurred on the Mississippi Curriculum Test, called the MCT2
  • One former Heidelberg student told The Clarion-Ledger her English teacher, Frances Smith, had read the answers aloud to the class during testing last year.
  • “She would say, ‘C for cat. D for dog. B for ball. A for apple,'” the now sixth-grade Oakhurst student said, describing how Smith provided students the correct multiple-choice response to each question.
  • In December of 2015, that principal, Lowanda Tyler-Jones, was charged in connection with the cheating scandal.
  • [Tyler-Jones] told a state education official that a dramatic increase in test scores was due to prayer.
“She indicated to me during an interview that she anointed the desks, the pencils, the doorways and also the students’ heads with holy water,” said [Drane].  
Breaking My Foot Off In Your AIDs
'Aids-curing' pastor claims he removed woman's 'vaginal warts' with the power of his holy shoe - http://bit.ly/2ja56fJ 
  • Bizarre footage shows Zendile Andries November passing his footwear to a woman in his congregation at Victorious Faith Ministries
  • But this South African pastor stepped things up a notch - by purporting to have cured a woman's 'vaginal warts' with his shoe.
  • Bizarre footage shows Zendile Andries November asking a woman in his congregation about the 'pimples'.
  • The Victorious Faith Ministries pastor - who also claims he can cure Aids with the power of prayer - then removes his shoe and hands to the woman, who places it between her thighs.
  • She then dramatically drops to the floor with the churchman's footwear lodged between her legs.
  • After a visit to the bathroom, another woman announces that her friend's condition has been miraculously cured - to cheers from the congregation at the Bloemfontein church.
"The woman came to me about pimples on her vagina. This made it impossible for her to sleep with her husband.  "Because the problem was on her private part I decided to use the shoe. I believe in miracles and God uses anything to heal."  
He claimed: 
”I also cured a lot of people of HIV/Aids‚ immediately after praying for them I ask them to go to the nearest clinic and test. Most of them come back negative‚ and those that are positive I encourage them to have faith and continue to pray for them.  "I specialize in deliverance for those who are demon possessed‚ spiritual husbands and diseases.”

Fake Abortion Doc Removed young Patients Intestines - http://bit.ly/2ja2sGK 
  • Police have arrested an unlicensed doctor who disappeared after removing a teenager girl’s small intestines during a botched abortion.
  • The unnamed female physician posed as a professional but promised budget procedures which were all carried out in her own home in the city of Shenzhen, in South China’s Guangdong Province.
  • After being given "abortion medication", the physician extracted the patient’s fetus with her forceps, but also accidentally pulled out her small intestines, which were then cut, leaving the woman in serious pain afterward.
  • After the procedure, the woman’s husband took her to the hospital where doctors told her she had had her small intestines removed, and that she would need a transplant.
  • Shenzhen City policeman Huang Jianwei, who helped arrest the suspect this week in Dazhou City, in south-western China’s Sichuan Province, said: "The suspect admitted to us that she had no medical qualifications. She had attended nursing school in the past, but didn’t graduate. All her knowledge was learned at a local clinic near her home.
"During the abortion [last year] in the suspect’s home, the patient was given medication and then the fetus and placenta were removed with a forceps. It is then that we believe her small intestines were also removed."  
Jenn Otter Known Better
Wolf-sized otters made for the cutest nightmares in China several million years ago. 
The otter family has been noted in the fossil record for at least the last 18 millions years, but little is known because the record itself is poor. There have only been a few prehistoric species identified, mainly from small bits of bone that limit the information. 
From Gizmodo: 
“The recent discovery of a complete skull and mandible, along with the partial skeletons of three individuals, is offering an unprecedented glimpse into the evolution of these animals. The remains were discovered by American paleontologists who were working at the Shuitangba Site in northeastern Yunnan Province in southwest China, in what used to be an ancient lakebed.” 
American scientist Dr. Denise Su, curator and head of paleobotany and paleoecology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History was co-author to the research that describes this new species. 
From phys.org
“The new species, Siamogale melilutra lived 6.24 million years ago in in the Yunnan Province in China. It weighed approximately 110 lbs and was roughly the size of a modern wolf. …What is unique about the new discovery is that researchers recovered a complete cranium, mandible, dentition and various skeletal elements—offering a wealth of insight into the taxonomy, evolutionary history and functional morphology of this new species.” 
Interestingly, the jaws actually show features that are both common in otters AND badgers, which belong to the same family Mustelidae. This new species' name of melilutra, combines the Latin names for badger (meles) and otter (lutra). So did we find a common ancestor? 
 

#Don’tShitOnJim

 
Instant Update!
There are now (Thursday, January 26, 2017. 7:00 PM) reports coming in that the bill is dead! This is fantastic news indeed but if you were motivated to write someone because of it don’t worry, there’s plenty to do … read below… 
 
Second Update…
Wyoming is introducing HB244, a super shitty bathroom bill… But that’s the last joke you’ll get on that topic because this is some extra transphobic billshit: Find out how you can help fight this bullshit bill at http://bit.ly/2j9Wwxj 
 
Please write Wyoming’s Reps and Senators and - being super extra nice - tell them how fucked up this is and why it’s a terrible social, economic, and bigoted lump of frog turds! 
 
Jim’s original post
If you want to share or comment (nicely!) find OC at http://bit.ly/2jWYcax
 
You may have heard about a bill introduced in the Wyoming Legislature, HB 135. They’re calling it the Government Nondiscrimination Act, and they’re saying that it’s about protecting the free exercise of religion. Even George Takei is talking about us here in the Equality State! 
Make no mistake; I unequivocally support the First Amendment and the free exercise of religion. But that’s not what HB 135 is really about. The only thing it protects is the right to discriminate against GLBTQ people. This bill MUST be stopped. It would allow any individual, business, group/organization, or government entity to turn me away. Or my husband. Or our daughter. It would allow a doctor or a teacher to refuse us service, just because I don’t comply with THEIR religious beliefs.
 
It would have allowed the county clerks to deny us a marriage license, just like in Kentucky. It would have allowed the University to deny me insurance for my husband and daughter. It would have allowed the judge to refuse to hear our adoption petition. And HB 135 explicitly says there would be nothing we could do about it. That government officials don’t have to do their jobs if someone disagrees with their religion. That DMV clerks and public defenders can put their personal beliefs before the law.
 
I cannot underscore the many ways in which this will hurt me and my family. It will put my daughter, Nessa, at risk because her dads will not have the same legal rights as everyone else. In a very real and instantaneous manner, it would put every single GLBTQ person in Wyoming at risk for losing their jobs and housing, and make it legal to deny access to every service available. Food stamps, WIC, and Medicaid too.
 
But it also sets an incredibly dangerous precedent. Allowing businesses to decide what kinds of people they can discriminate against is a slippery slope we don’t want to go down. Who will be next? Will it become okay to refuse to serve people of color or people of a different faith? Our founding documents state that the government shall establish no religion, but HB 135 would do just that. If this is really about protecting the free exercise of religion, why does it focus on a single belief of SOME religions? Religious freedom is firmly enshrined in our existing laws, and that’s not going away anytime soon. If someone tries to take it away, I will be there fighting that discriminatory legislation too. So why is HB 135 needed now?
 
So what can you do? Wyoming residents need to speak up and get involved. Use your voice! Contact your state legislators; tell them that you’re opposed, and why. People don’t call their elected officials as often as you think, so each call represents dozens or even hundreds of voters. Tell them to vote no! Tell them that discrimination is simply bad for business. Tell them that North Carolina already did this, and they’ve lost over $600,000 in revenue because people recognized it as discrimination. Tourism is one of our primary industries in Wyoming, and we shouldn’t risk lost revenue at a time when our state budget is already in turmoil. If we want to compete, Wyoming must demonstrate a commitment to creating an open, healthy, and diverse workforce.
 
Tell them that HB 135 takes away local control from cities and counties to govern themselves, as it would invalidate actual non-discrimination ordinances and prevent other cities from enacting them. Tell them that they’re sending a message that their GLBTQ neighbors and constituents are “less than,” and might lead to an increase in the suicide rate. Tell them that it would violate Article I, Section 3 of the Wyoming Constitution, which guarantees “Equal political rights.” Tell them that ignoring marriages recognized by other states would violate the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the 14th Amendment.
 
Please don’t just leave this to GLTBT folks; it’s pretty obvious that our leaders don’t think very highly of us, our rights, or our opinions. Write letters to the editor. If you’re straight and cisgender, your voice can speak even louder than mine, because you don’t have anything to gain or lose. If you can say “this law wouldn’t apply to me, but I still think it’s hateful and wrong,” tell people. Tell your friends and neighbors about HB 135, and encourage them to speak up too. It’s going to take people from both sides of the political aisle, and people of all walks of life to do what’s right. I’ve seen Wyoming Republicans join Democrats to prevent hate-filled, anti-GLBTQ bills in the past, and I know we can do it again now.
 
Talk about your values. If you’re a person of faith and think this is wrong, say so! Tell them everyone deserves to be treated fairly and equally under the laws of our state and in our community. Tell them we don’t turn our backs on family in Wyoming, and that no member of anyone’s family should have to face shame because of who they are or who they love. That our government should be looking out for ALL Wyoming residents, not just people who oppose same-sex marriage. Tell them that allowing GLBTQ people to live and work in Wyoming without fear of discrimination will not change how each religion defines what’s right or wrong. Remind them that opposing HB 135 will not change any religious beliefs or practices.
 
A friend of mine in California asked how they could help from afar. It’s true that calls or letters from outside the state might not mean as much to legislators, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have an impact. Maybe if they heard how HB 135 is being viewed by others around the country, it might serve as a wakeup call. Maybe it will help if they learn how many trips to Yellowstone or Cheyenne Frontier Days might be canceled in response. Do you have friends or relatives here in Wyoming? Tell them to get involved!
 
Also, don’t assume this can’t happen in your state. This is not the first time such a bill has been proposed, and more like it are going to be introduced in other states. It’s just as important for you to reach out to your friends, neighbors, and leaders to prevent it from spreading to your communities. We need to raise awareness. To educate people about the reality of discrimination. To change hearts and minds, in some cases. Your voice has power, and it matters.
 
Share your personal stories; it’s easier to ignore the discriminatory impact on “those people” than on someone you know and care about. Be vocal, but be polite. Name calling and yelling are easy to ignore, but it’s harder to discount calm, rational arguments that are respectful and well-reasoned. It’s important that we model civil dialogue and treat everyone with respect. I refuse to sink to their level, and I hope you will too. At the end of the day, this is about equality and respect. That’s why I hope that you respect me and my family enough to take action. To stand up for me the way I’ve been standing up for others for so many years now. To help ensure I have access to equality, and that my daughter will be protected. Even if we’re not part of “the right church.” It’s only fair…

Supermarket Introduces “Relaxed Lane” for Special Needs Customers - http://bit.ly/2j9RnoS 
  • One of the Tesco supermarket branches in Scotland has just launched a “relaxed lane” for vulnerable customers who would prefer to take their time at the till.
  • The store, located in Forres, Moray, hopes that the lane will make grocery shopping easier for guests with dementia, autism, Alzheimer’s, learning disabilities, or just a mother with several kids under her arm.
  • The project, developed with the assistance of Alzheimer Scotland, will hopefully encourage shoppers to comfortably move at their own pace without feeling rushed.
  • Though it is currently only a trial program, the lane – open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays – has already received an outpouring of approval and support.
“It was highlighted to me that people living with dementia can feel under pressure when they reach the checkout, and it struck me that this could be true for others as well,” the store’s Kerry Speed told BBC. “Early feedback from customers has been very positive. Although it’s a simple gesture, we hope this will make a difference.”

Shea's Story
 
Klingenschmitt is at it again - http://bit.ly/2juhZOj
 
Gays are immoral and should never be teachers!
 
On the latest episode of “Pray In Jesus Name” or PIJN for short our good friend Klingyshit said that gay people should never be allowed to serve as school teachers because they “should be disqualified immediately because of their immorality.”
 
was commenting on a report about a Minnesota elementary school teacher and his husband who allegedly abused multiple boys over the course of several years and then killed themselves once an investigation was launched. Klingenschmitt said that while these men were obviously possessed by “a demonic spirit of child abuse,” the school system and society as a whole also share the blame for allowing gay people to teach in public schools in the first place. - http://bit.ly/2julJj8
 
Many of these allegations were confirmed after their deaths when police found a hidden camera in a bathroom clock
 
Though I'm not making light of these two men's crimes, this teacher was in a position of power and abused his relationship as a mentor, a role model, and a care taker. It is disgusting what these two men did.
 
But as Klingyshit classifies all gay and lesbian teachers as sex offenders and morally corrupt is to do the same to all teachers. A quick search of educator abuse with coming up with results of offenders from every creed, sex, and nationality.
 
Klingyshit then says “As a culture now, the demonic spirit of homosexuality has taken over and redefined marriage, particularly in Minnesota, to tell these boys that it is okay,” he said. “And the demonic spirit of deception has taken over the school board or whoever decided, maybe the principal, decided to hire these child abusers to teach elementary school. Well, if anything, they should have been disqualified immediately because of their immorality, because the immorality inside of these two men are indicators that they are unfit to be a good example to little children.”
 
“This is evil upon evil and it’s not just these two men who are at fault,”
 
Klingenschmitt added. “It is our laws as a society that need to be changed to prevent and protect children from this kind of abuse in the future.”
 
We should not give these two men a pass, as what they did was deplorable but calling all teachers horrible deviants from hell is overboard.
 
Jenn's Story
 
Is there a brainy reason I want to eat a whole pizza in my underwear after a night at the bar? MAYBE!!!
 
Not that any of us could speak to this from experience, but apparently binge drinking can sometimes lead to binge eating. And, interestingly, scientists have conducted some experiments that may help to explain exactly WHY we---er, PEOPLE end up heading for a late night taco run after a night of bar crawling.
 
From an article in Medical Daily
“For the study, researchers looked at the brains of mice, some who were given alcohol and some who were not, to understand if there was a neurological explanation for increased appetite after drinking alcohol.They found that an area of the brain called the Agrp neurons, which is located in the hypothalamus, was activated in mice given alcohol, but not the controls. When the team purposely deactivated these neurons in mice given alcohol, they did not overeat. This suggested that alcohol-induced food binges may be caused by a constant activation of this part of the brain.”
It's often baffled medical researchers that, after spending time ingesting high-calorie alcoholic drinks, the brain doesn't register as full. In fact, often the opposite occurs.
“Although the experiment cannot be reproduced on humans for ethical reasons, the mice behaved the same way as humans who drank too much the night before. For example, mice that were injected with alcohol became more hungry and ate far more than mice that were not given alcohol. This effect was especially strong the next day, which may explain why hungover individuals often take solace in overeating. The neurons in the mice remained active throughout the second day, urging them to continue to eat even when they were physically full.”

Update: Father Who Let His Child Die of Meningitis is Once Again Promoting Harmful Alternative Medicine - http://bit.ly/2jui7gM
Remember David Stephan and his wife Collet Stephan?
 
They’re the Canadians who received four months in jail and three months of house arrest, respectively, as punishment for allowing their baby to die from meningitis by treating him with maple syrup and hot peppers instead of the vaccine that could have actually helped.
David Stephan is already back on the road telling people all about the health benefits of alternative medicine, doing whatever he can to make sure other kids suffer just like his own.
 
The Alberta father found guilty with this wife of “failing to provide the necessaries of life” to their 18-month-old son Ezekiel appeared Tuesday at an alternative health store in Prince George, B.C., to promote a nutritional supplement claimed to treat mental illness.
“Come listen to David Stephan talk about how his family members suffered from mental illness and were made well,” read a flyer promoting the appearance at Ave Maria Specialties. The store calls itself the largest health food store in northern British Columbia and promises “healthy products for mind, body, and soul.”

Pa. parents outraged by high school's math question on child's sexual assault - http://bit.ly/2julg0h
Parents with students in the Bucks County high school did a double-take when they saw a math homework question that centered on which family member sexually assaulted a young girl.
 
Pennridge Superintendent Jacqueline A. Rattigan has since apologized, saying in a statement quoted by Philly.com that the question was "downloaded from a website that allows teachers around the world to share educational resources. It is not part of our approve curriculum."
Rattigan added that "steps to avoid such occurrences in the future" were being taken.
"y = x+2, 3x+6y = 12, Angelou was sexually abused by her mother's ___ at age 8, which shaped her career choices and motivation for writing."
The multiple choice answers:
  • her mother's boyfriend
  • brother
  • or father.

Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 114 - The One Where Shea Learns Asparamancy

January 13, 2017
00:0000:00

In This Week’s Show

AiG launches an r-Kansas retreat for all the good astronaut boys and boys who eat their veggies and reflect on the year gone by.

Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Anat Canaanite goddess of love and war hasn't struck us down yet, we are trying their patience!

Shea’s Life Lesson

This week I learned that if you step on a person's foot they open their mouths, just like trash cans.

Jenn’s Actual Lesson

Did you know practitioners of Candomble an African based religion brought to the Americas by slave ships, believe in one all powerful God called Oludumaré, who is served by lesser deities!

But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Shea got a letter from RW, Shea...

Texts from Cthulhu.

This is Cthulhu the Octopus God. Hope you all have a wonderful New Year. You will probably be like me and only staying up to watch 2016 die. Also, recently had the chance to try a Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter. I really did not like it. It was very acidic with very little vanilla. I think I will go Big Gay Jim style to bring in the New Year with so Scotch or Whiskey.

  • American Humanist Association sent letter about this bullshit to school
  • School shut it down because it violated school board policy that restricted student-initiated groups to high-schoolers, not because it was fucking unlawful

Aaron's Future Relieved!

Fortune teller who uses ASPARAGUS to predict the future claims 'national treasure' Brit couple will divorce - http://bit.ly/2iq24lw

  • Jemima Packington throws asparagus spears into the air and interprets the way they land
  • Otherwise known as the Asparamancer, or Mystic Veg - has been throwing asparagus spears into the air and interpreting the way they land for many years to predict the future.
  • She added that when she does readings for people - up to 50 a day - at the British Asparagus Festival in the Vale of Evesham she often gets repeat business from people she saw in previous years because her forecasts were so accurate.
  • She says she inherited the gift from her elderly aunt who used to read tea leaves.
  • Her other predictions for 2017 include:
  • The USA will be seen as a pariah under the presidency of Donald Trump
  • Brexit will go ahead despite efforts of those wishing to derail it
  • Other EU countries will follow UK’s example and apply to withdraw from the EU
  • Troubling times for the Royal Family
  • Many more sporting scandal stories will emerge with very high profile figures falling from grace
  • The political atmosphere of certain EU countries will change with the deposing of several prominent leaders
  • Political turmoil within UK opposition parties will rumble on
  • A major review of the UK’s education system will be undertaken

“I’m sure that Jemima’s annual predictions will also attract wide media interest as they have in the past and thank her for continuing to keep Vale of Evesham asparagus on the world-wide map.”

She has been dubbed ‘Ambassador for Vale Gras the Vale of Evesham even though she now lives in Bath!

“It is a great honor to be associated with it and it is great fun. I do it because I enjoy doing it,” she said.

P.S.

It seems to me like this might all be just a bit of fun put on to promote the festival. And to their credit, it's worked wonderfully as we've just linked to it. Everyone seemed to be having a good time and I don't see how this could possibly be taken seriously... And frankly, who doesn't love a grilled asparagus?... right...

Jenn's Story

Science and Equality! Let's get the fuck out of our country---in fact, let's leave the planet altogether. Congratulations to Jeanette Epps, who has become the first African American onboard the International Space Station. - http://huff.to/2iqEQLZ

The ISS has been in orbit since 1998 and is now the largest artificial body in orbit and can sometimes be seen by the naked eye from Earth. It was intended to be a laboratory, observatory, and factory in low Earth orbit. It was also planned to provide transportation, maintenance, and act as a staging base for possible future missions to the Moon, Mars, and asteroids.

NASA has sent 14 black astronauts into space in previous missions, but Epps will be the 1st African American and only 13th woman aboard the ISS.

I'm hoping lots of the young girls who are considering looking into education/careers in the STEM fields look to Epps as a mentor. She has a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering and has served as an astronaut since 2009. She has also spent seven years as a technical intelligence officer for the Central Intelligence Agency. She is also a former NASA Graduate Student Researchers Project fellow, will be one of among 200 astronauts who have visited the ISS.

Shea Has Flashbacks

Episode Links Will Being Playing At The Story!

The Poop Cup Story - http://bit.ly/2iqspjk

If you weren't a listener last year, you pretty much need to listen to this. The audio is less awesome than it is now, but not by much. It's super listenable and well worth your time. Also keep in mind that we were like 15 beer tastings in at this point...

Episode 78 - The Fallen Angel - http://bit.ly/2iquXxS

  • Last year on March 12th, 2016 in Jakarta an angel fell to Earth only to be found by a 21-year-old fisherman who brought her home to care for her.
  • Village buzz caught the attention of the local police who then went to investigate the so called angel. Only then did everyone discover it was an inflatable doll.
  • Police Chief said the parents of the fisherman changed the doll’s clothes every day and was given a blouse and a hijab – a way to care for it as it slowly deflated.

Episode 68 - Saudi Arabian Hogwarts Courses - http://bit.ly/2imsP6N

  • Recruits in an anti-witchcraft unit within Saudi Arabia’s powerful religious police have begun a new training course on theoretical and practical aspects of countering sorcery and the black arts, the practice of which is punishable by death.
  • They completed a five-day course on combating magic at the headquarters of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice
  • How to identify magicians and destroy black artworks.
  • The unit had formed nine bureaus for fighting witchcraft by 2011, and in 2012 alone charged 215 magicians, the report said.
  • The country carried out at least 157 executions in 2015, with beheadings reaching their highest level in the kingdom there in two decades

Update

  • They must have been trained really well because of this year beheadings alone, are up more than double from 2015!
  • Way to go, Saudi Arabia, Witchcraft must be down now, good job!

Episode 69 - Because Numerology Is Funny... http://bit.ly/2imudX5

This is just an episode link cause we don't actually talk about this episode for that matter, I don't even remember what it's about but we're children so the name is funny.

Episode 103 - The Dyatlov Pass - http://bit.ly/2iqBecN

  • Loved everything about this story so you need to go back and listen if you missed it. I have a new theory, and by theory I mean truth...
  • Our story took place in 1959 in a remote Russian mountain pass where 9 hikers all bolted from their tent, shoe-less and scared, to their inevitable deaths in the freezing weather.
  • I postulate that this coincided with the solar flare of July 16th of the same year
  • This flare started a series of events allowing a demon to be summoned on Dyatlov Pass in the middle of these poor hikers tent...
  • As we all know demons are scary and when faced with the orange glow of hell fires the last thing you think about is shoes.
  • There is proof of this demon! As we know there has been many prophesies of the anti-Christ and the beast that is America.
  • Had these chicken shitted hikers stayed and taken up their mantle of demon hunters then maybe the hell colored demon would never have run for president!

Honorable Mentions

Less Honorable Mentions...

The Poop Statue story we can't remember or find. So... a current Patreon cut the show to anyone who remembers when that was!

We mention a story about a dog fucker. And just to be clear it is, in fact, about some lady who fucks dogs. You probably shouldn't listen to it. Also, the audio kinda sucks and it's terrible and listening to it will make baby Jesus cry.

But if you must... http://bit.ly/2iqB9Gf

Chris Corley and Azalia Banks sacrifice the sad helpless decedents of the dinosaurs in the hopes of making 2016 the year Ken Ham accepts that he is, in fact, descended from filthy shark men.

Jenn’s Actual Lesson

I'm Steve and before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!Did you know that the Iroquois, a Native American tribe that was a member of the Confederacy of Six Nations, believed in fairies? Well, technically they seemed more like elves/gnomes. They were known as the Jo-ga-oh, and were believed to protect and guide all the natural world and protect the People Iroquois from unseen hidden enemies.

5-star review

by: David the Oxford United States

It's about to be 2017 and I am looking forward to my weekly fix of banter and drinking. I wish y'all the best of times in the coming year and to anybody out there who needs a pick me up and a reason to keep going, this is your podcast. See y'all at reason con.

Stitcher Reviews:

★★★★★ 5 out of 5 stars.

From CanadianKyle:

Great humour, colourful commentary. 

You guysand girl rock. Keep it up! Listening to 109 right now, I always enjoy your reaction when the beer is off. 

★★★★★ 5 out of 5 stars.

From noops42:

Good beer is imaginary much like god 

While I disagree with their stance that there is anything good about beer they put on a good podcast. I had the good fortune to meet them at a Shelly Segal concert a while ago and they are as funny and generous in person as they are on the show. I work with a lot of beer drinking people and their insight allows me to at least follow those conversations at work. I apologize if this is jumping around I had the good sense to consume a healthy dose of rum this evening before doing my informal logic homework. Keep up the good work and I look forward to each episode. 

Headlines

Witch doctors neededhttp://nyp.st/2iVkUPC

  • International Association of Exorcists conference, a Vatican-sanctioned retreat for about 400 catholic leaders, met in Rome in October
  • They are concerned that there is a big upswing in demon possessions but there are too few trained priests to manage the problem
  • Rev. Vincent Lampert, the head priest at St. Malachy’s in Indianapolis, Indiana said the meeting was to stategize on how to recruit and train more exorcists, who use holy water and prayer to combat evil
  • The situation is dire, he said, because rampant pornography, illegal narcotic use and the occult have made it easier for Satan to cast his net.
  • Valter Cascioli, the psychologist and scientific consultant for the exorcists’ association, agreed demons across the world have multiplied and there aren’t enough priests to fight them.
  • “The lack of exorcists is a real emergency,” he told the Italian newspaper La Stampa.
  • Marcos Quinones, a New York state chaplain who claims he works as an occult investigator, says the new generation of drug dealers spray their illicit products with incantations and evil spells before putting it on the street.
  • “Many drug traffickers practice forms of the occult. They incorporate voodoo or black magic that gives them the power to succeed. It makes the product more powerful and creates a stronger addict. In essence, they’re doubling the curse the drugs cause anyway,” he said.

Nobody informed the Sharkshttp://bit.ly/2iVwOZV

  • Zack Davis received “Shark Banz” for xmas 
  • Feeling safe, he went surfing off North Hutchinson island and was promptly attacked by ... a shark.
  • The shark, possibly a black tip, attacked the kid's arm requiring 44 stitches
  • He shook the shark free after 2-3 seconds and quickly got out of the water
  • He spent the night in the hospital
  • His credulous mother, is now wanting her $80 back.

Dickhead Texas judge blocks transgender policyhttp://bit.ly/2iVDlDB
http://bit.ly/2iVDlDB

  • Federal judge, Reed O'Connor, blocked national regulations aimed at protecting transgender people from discrimination in health care
  • O'Connor said the regulations "likely" violate "the Religious Freedom Restoration Act" and were flawed because laws prohibiting discrimination based on sex were incorrectly stretched by the federal government to include discrimination based on gender identity.
  • ruling stated that "plaintiffs will be forced to either violate their religious beliefs or maintain their current policies which seem to be in direct conflict with the federal regulations and risk the severe consequences of enforcement."
  • Second ruling by O'Connor that thwarts President Barack Obama's efforts to increase protections for transgender individuals. He issued a similar injunction in October blocking a federal move that required public schools to let transgender students use restrooms consistent with their gender identity.

This Week’s Stories

Jenn’s Southern Tours

South Carolina Republican State Representative, Chris Corley, was arrested Dec. 29th in the city of Aiken. Before we get into the arrest, I want to give just a quick bit of backstory on this man. He had actually made headlines in December of 2015. Quick trip down racist memory lane: 

I was made aware of Mr. Corley when he sent out Christmas cards last year to his fellow Republican representatives of the house that can only be described as OVERTLY racist. The front of the card shows the Confederate flag flying over the SC state capital. On the back he wrote:

“May your Christmas be filled with memories of a happier time when South Carolina’s leaders possessed morals, convictions and the principles to stand for what is right.

How fortunate each and every one of us are that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ chose to be born into this miserable world. His sacrifice was difficult, but the best decisions are not always the easiest ones.

May you have a blessed and happy Christmas, and may you take this joyous time as an opportunity to ask forgiveness of all yours sins such as betrayal.”

http://bit.ly/2iVv2rt

This mainly stems from Gov. Nikki Haley's call for a vote to remove it the flag from SC government buildings after the Charleston church shootings. It was decided to remove the flag, so Rep. Corley sat in the House seat, waving a small white flag stating that it should be the new state flag get it? Surrender??.

Ok, so that was a brief rundown on Rep. Corley. He's a smug bigot that likes to shame people for ttheir lack of conviction and morals. Got it?

  • For those of us that don't speak WTF apparently that's when you sacrifice chickens in your closet.

  • her thoughts about atheism:
  • I don’t understand how someone could be an atheist. Think about God as software, right? If you were to look at God’s face, your head would explode.Because your head is a calculator, and the amount of information that would be embedded in his face would fit only on a Google-size data center. Your head cannot handle that much information. Stop looking for God.

But Who Patreonizes AiG

Hammie Charles Wolford knows what killed the dinosaurs... it was Jesus! 

Creationist: The Story of Beowulf is an “Eyewitness Account” of Humans Interacting with Dinosaurs -  http://bit.ly/2iVDoiL

  • Charles Wolford, a reporter for Louisville Magazine, visited Ark Encounter on its opening day this past July, and his article about the experience is now available online http://bit.ly/2iVuv95

  • he spoke with AiG’s director of research Andrew Snelling that is just unbelievable, even for Creationists.

AiG’s Dr. Georgia Purdom introduced me to geologist Andrew Snelling, who followed Ken Ham to the U.S. from Australia and for the last nine years has been the director of research for Answers in Genesis. I said,

“There were dinosaurs on the Ark, right?” Snelling nodded. “Right.”

“Then why aren’t there dinosaurs today?”

“Dinosaurs went extinct after they left the Ark. After the Flood, we had the Ice Age. We had a radically different world. Some creatures weren’t able to adapt. But most cultures in the world have some legend about dragons, and these dragons are actually a good description of dinosaurs. The Chinese, for example — their dragons are depicted on scrolls pulling the chariots of emperors. And there was a story called Beowulf in which the king slays a dragon, and this happened in Norway.”

“So you take Beowulf to be evidence of dinosaurs existing?”

“Yes,” Snelling said. “It was an eyewitness account.”

  • museum-style posters on the walls:
  • Fish would have been nave during the ood, one said, because a lot of marine species thrive in both fresh- water and saltwater;
  • polar bears would have survived, too, because they don’t need to live in a subzero climate “many warm-weather zoos house polar bears”;
  • large animals could t in the Ark given that it was bigger than people think, and most dinosaurs “were smaller than bison, even as adults”;
  • and 99 percent of all species have not gone extinct, as evolutionary biologists claim: “ the amount of documented extinct species only numbers in the thousands — not in the millions or billions.”
  • One of the posters, “Giants,” showed an ogreish gure with jagged teeth charging forward with a club raised over his bald, scarred head. In front of me, a woman with a pageboy haircut held the hand of a little boy. Pointing, she said, “ ere were once giants in the Earth. Did you know that, buddy?”

“There were?” the boy said.

“A long time ago. Yep. It’s in the Bible.”

  • Exhibit that showed what Noah’s family’s living quarters might have been like. A poster “Meet Your Ancestors” divided Noah’s tribe into couples:
  • Noah and Emzara,
  • Ham and Kezia,
  • Shem and Ar’yel,
  • Japheth and Rayneh.
  • These wom- en go unnamed in the Bible, as Marsh told me: “Noah’s wife, Emzara, is a name often mentioned in extra-biblical writ- ings. Kezia, Rayneh, Ar’yel are made-up names by us. We gave the wives different racial characteristics that foreshadow the development of the different races we see today.” Ar’yel seemed maybe Italian or Jewish, Kezia reminded me of a cinnamon-skinned African-American woman, and Rayneh looked cherubically Aryan.
  • A huge problem for naturalistic thinking is its foundation in materialism — the belief that only matter exists,”

No one can swing by a grocery store and buy two ounces of logic, a bag of natural law, and a carton of morality. In a universe without laws of logic or laws of nature, how could anyone prove that naturalistic evolution has occurred?”

A man with silver hair pointed to a display about gravity while talking to a boy who looked like he was 10 years old.

“Gravity has never been proven, because gravity is a large object attracted to a smaller object, and it’s never been seen. If gravity existed, a BB and a bowling ball should bump into each other. So you see how guys like Newton get caught in their own lies.”

  • “Noah’s Chili with Cheese Soup du Jour,” “Double Bacon and Cheeseburger — ‘The Two by Two,’” and “Pepsi, Mtn. Dew, Mist Twist $2.50 – no refills.”

Uber Sex

What started out as a normal Uber driving shift for Keith Avila turned into an incredible rescue of a 16-year-old girl from a child sex trafficking ring.

  • Keith was working on Monday night in Sacramento, California when he picked up two women and a young girl.
  • While driving them to a Holiday Inn, he started hearing the adults openly instruct the teen on how to interact with “John” at the hotel. Their instructions reportedly included telling her to “pat him down for weapons while hugging him” and “get the donation from him” before anything happened.
  • He called the cops
  • Police officers arrived at the scene in minutes, arresting the two pimps – Destiny Pettway and Maria Westley – and the man that they were meeting. The teen was apparently a runaway who was then rescued and taken into temporary housing while law enforcement located her family.
  • “The worst thing I thought would happen when driving Uber is that I would be getting drunk passengers and I would have to handle them,” Avila told NBC Latino. “All my life, I thought about people throwing up in the car as the worst scenario.”
