What a load of Bull!

As a male I do heaps of channel-surfing and with the whole gambit of Sky Channels at my disposal that equates to a shit-load of random channel changes in any one evening.

Two nights ago I stumbled on-to this ‘Only in America’ snippet.

I genuinely had to check the channel to see if this was not some sort of comedy skit such was the farcical nature.

Looking over the clip again off You Tube the absurdity of this so-called ‘news’ item becomes even more clearer.

If your nominated God was going to offer ‘a sign’ surely he/she could do a better job than this?

This is a run-down farm in Connecticut, which appears to have more genetic throw-backs amongst its human occupants than its bovine.

Then there’s the cross itself.

Frankly the cross on this bull looks as if it was done in water-colours and the artist dabbed a bit too much water on the brush. The technique sucks.

The cross bears more resemblance to Scientology than a Christian crucifix so were of an opinion this was a sign from a deity rather than something unusual and mildly interesting – there is more evidence of the mysterious beyond-the-grave works of L.Ron Hubbard as opposed to the nameless Abrahamic god.

The real interesting thing in this clip is this – what happens if this bulls off-spring all have this pattern?

Will this mean Darwinian biology kicks-in and their progeny live their lives out without threat of premature death and thus become the dominant cows by virtue of this ‘cross-like’ pattern, coupled-with superstitious hick-farmers who spare them from being made into burger patties?

The scenario reminds me of the Dr Seuss story about the stars on the bellies of Sneetches.

Hi Canterbury atheist, OT I know, but I am seeking your help for the quote context of the following paragraph of Ray Comfort's 'More Than Just Comfort - An Answer To Cancer':

“Therefore you should never take medicine to relieve pain. You should never consult a doctor or go to a hospital for treatment, because you would be interfering with the work of God in your life. If Cancer is the chastening tool of God, then doctors who are fighting cancer are fighting against the work of God. If a preacher or a Christian believes the sickness is a means of chastening, then he should never pray for relief from the sickness, but rather pray that the cancer will continue to grow until the chastening is completed”

At his blog Ray is censoring the quote (copied from your blog) and has so far refused to give any context for it after repeated requests, also claiming that he doesn't have a copy.

Any help vastly appreciated!

In truth,

Raoul Rheits

As for the calf, I disagree, that is total proof.

The only thing that has more proof than that is an orange I once bought that had the EXACT navel of Jesus on the underside of it.

Gidday there Raoul,

I will scan the relevant pages and place them on flickr.

Search flickr in a couple of days and there will be a Readers Digest version of 'An Answer to Cancer'.
