So I’m Watching The News Last Night

…and this ignorant ass story comes on about a guy who found a real live sign from god on his lawn. Now you should know the news ’round here almost always has some lame god bothering piece because, well, this is the south after all. But this one really stuck out like a sore pecker in a monastery.

This guy saw a rainbow, that was “apparently” touching his driveway. See here:


Now, that thar rainbow appears to me to be quite some distance from this guys yard, but let’s not let that ruin a sign from god.

Upon arriving home this guy (Eric) found an image of an angel holding a baby in his yard. See here:


Yes, yes I can see how everyone with an ounce of sense would interpret that as an angel holding a baby. Anyone who can’t see that must be some sort of baby eating atheist. I’m looking at you oh Divine One 😉

Now while this all seems a tad silly, and to be sure it is, but this is just the beginning of the story. Mr. Eric has a daughter that has had and I quote “several” miscarriages. Which in and of itself is quite tragic on a personal level, but let’s face it these things happen daily, and many people (even I) have been affected by this kind of purely natural event. I can relate, and I feel for anyone who has endured this kind of tragic loss. We find a way to cope.

But our good pal Eric? He took his daughter to some preacher to be prayed over, because every woman this guy has prayed over has had babies! That’s incredible folks! It’s almost like magic or something! Or perhaps it is a bit like praying for rain… Sooner or later you will get it right. Praying for something that is bound to happen eventually and claiming some sort of success is pretty damn cheesy if you ask me. And intellectually dishonest to boot.

I don’t know, it seems to me there are as many gods as there are religious people. Each and every person tries to interpret the world through the gods in their heads. This is surely evidence for that.

Just in case you think after such a long time with little or no posting from yours truly, and you thought just maybe I had to make something up to write about…
