See ya round like a dunny-roll

Dear Readers,

I am closing my blog ‘Canterbury Atheist’ indefinitely.

For the record, this is the 392nd post I’ve made since I started-up in April 2008.

I have a number of outside activities going on in my life – including writing a book, training for an endurance event - that are taking their toll time-wise.

Blogging is an outlet for me, but certainly not a big part of my life.

The tabloid ‘throw-away’ nature of blogs is something I constantly struggle with, find-somewhat but a short-fix and unfulfilling in the long-term scheme.

My best and most read articles have come-about after considerable research, time and effort (Examples: search, using the facility at the top-left for ‘Dalai Lama’ ‘Church of Odin’ and say ‘Zenith Applied Philosophy’)

The blogging platform is therefore limited to ‘throw-away’ articles, when I want to get into something more substantive. Not just limited to ‘free thought’ subject matter, either.

This is not the first time this blog has gone into recess, come hibernation, so I may well resurrect it, should the urges overcome me and I need to kill again, arrange the body parts geometrically and send the coppers cryptic messages taunting them.

You know you can’t trust an atheist’s word anyway.

To all my readers & even my detractors, some 250 a day, thanks for popping-by.

Keep safe and close to your family and friends.

Good-bye for now and thanks for all the fish.


PS: For the record Split Enz went down-hill without Judd.

Why a single Cryptozoologist has more credibility than all the worlds theists put together.

In the same way scientists look for the origins of The Big Bang, create devices to examine what makes-up the universe etc - why can’t theists also similarly unite and employ science to conclusively seek out their god? Prove not only conclusively that this supernatural-being exists - but go then go the next step and start communicating with him/her and then in-turn find his creator?

With the financial resources at their disposal, the ability for theists to cobble-together enough money to fund a ‘God Detector’ can’t be down to lack of money.

Even the most staunch-believer has to agree that god is made of something to be able to make planets and monitor all the goings-on on earth etc.

‘Something’ on this massive scale can surely be discovered?

My hat goes off to those hardy Cryptozoology folk.

At least those seeking out hidden/legendary extinct-animals, do so with vigor and with every resource available at their disposal.

Cryptozologists are at least bright enough to know, that without evidence their convictions are meaningless.

They seek evidence for Big-Foot or Loch Ness Monster etc and don’t just settle for the comfortable yet unsubstantial “we know it exists” in the same glib way as theists.

That’s why a single pig-headed, nut-case Cryptozoologist has more credibility than all the worlds theists put together.

There’s witchcraft in them there Carterton halls.

Wairarapa appears to be a hotbed of paganism (strange, I seem to have been left off their invite list to this years midnight Satanic orgy?) and the sleepy town of Carterton is the vortex for this shameless devil-worship.

This coven of devil-worshippers was exposed when the towns-library was temporarily housed in the local Masonic Lodge.

As every good Christian knows those goat-molesting Freemasons are in league with Beelzebub and Reverend John Cromarty from St David’s Church in Carterton wants the mayor to close the temporary library being run out of the lodge – least it corrupts the population.

In his letter to the town mayor Cromarty spells-out the evils of Freemasonry and the potential dangers of being exposed to its dark-craft.

"Freemasonry, while it does good works in the community, is based upon the worship of pagan gods,"

“While it portrays a facade as being compatible to Christianity in its teaching, it has its foundation rooted in witchcraft and pre-Christian teachings and practice."

The reply from Cartertons mayor, Gary McPhee, to Reverend Cromarty’s complaints could have been penned by yours-truly, given its acerbic nature.

McPhee told Cromarty in his open reply he was "stuck in the wrong century" and "We are now in the 21st century but clearly some people didn't move along with us."

Looking at the retard in the photo above (check-out the jutting jaw and small cranium) – I have to agree with McPhee’s line of reasoning on this one, but he appears to have let diplomacy get the better of his vitriol.

After closer examination of Reverend John ‘Missing-Link’ Cromarty’s photo, I would place that period of time closer-to 400,000 years ago when Homo Neanderthalensis roamed the planet, rather than mere centuries.

Would the real DM please stand-up

This is ‘the’ legendary DM (a.k.a David Marbus) the author of such gems as the one below, which appear with annoying regularity in the comments section of atheist blogs through-out the world, including mine:

add comment moderation to your BS you will not have a PUBLIC FORUM NEW GAME WITH YOU LITTLE F*CKERS - SPEAK N DIE. Come see the latest DM videos for your viewing pleasure! the WORLD TRADE CENTER PROPHECY - THE DANCE OF DEATH _______________ And the Pope is 100% correct: The Nazis and the atheists both wish to ABOLISH FAITH.... ________________________ hawking is WRONG science cannot explain NOTHING! FAIR AND BALANCED! ________________

If that wasn’t enough indication DM is a looney-tune extraordinaire, take-a-look at another one of his delusional rants, I recently deleted:

the only crap you will ever need from this so-called "philosopher" called massimo pigliucci "The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it." JOHN THE REVELATOR! FAIR AND BALANCED! KING OF TERROR add comment moderation to your BS or more people will die with you... NO GODS AND NO POLITICS WITH THESE LITTLE IDIOTS! plush safe he think but with recent revelations about James Randi, I think he likes DICKS! THE SECOND COMING! THE END OF ATHEISM FOLLOW THE WHITE RABBIT... THE B**BQUAKE - 911

David Marbus turns-out to be a Canadian called Dennis Markuze and he’s a lot younger than I expected.

But then again I should have guessed he was closer to 30 than 50 when I had in front of me the stunning truth that Nostradamus predicted the formation of the group Depeche Mode and that somehow in-turn lead to September 11th.

If you ask me his jacket is more Spandau Ballet than Depeche Mode and the later have penned more than fair share of atheist anthems as it happens – not that DM is aware of much happening in the real world outside his Montreal bedroom.

Markuze also seems to like the Japanese horror-film ‘The Ring’ from other rants I’ve seen over the years – hardly suprising since I don’t think he gets out much of his parents house, except to fill-up his prescription.

Basically ‘the tough-guy’ DM turns-out to be a sniveling creep.

This song is for you DM.

The time for popes to show their magic is when they are alive – not dead.

Part of the all-but automatic beatification process of a pope and the road to his sainthood, is evidence of a credible miracle.

To gain sainthood a pope must show they are in-effect a kind of middleman ‘lightening rod’ on earth for their god called Yahweh.

Invariably this anecdotal evidence when provided is flimsy at best, and placed-on the-table long after their deaths.

No one seems to care that when someone is alive they are never able to display their magic-tricks and never, but never, in an open-public forum or say under scientific scrutiny.

If the current pope is to show us the power of god channeled through his form – why not stump-up with the goods right now rather than later when he is dead and buried?

Why doesn’t The Catholic Church show us Benedict is literally ‘gods emissary’ by showing-us now, rather than decades later, his miracle, so we can examine it in the harsh light of day?

The time for Benedict to show us his magic, say regeneration of a severed limb, is now - but there sweat FA chance of that happening.

That would lead the entire public and scientific community playing the devils advocate.
