More Bloody Hyperscepticism

Yet another case of "scepticism" being taken to ridiculous lengths. (Ockham's Razor, meanwhile, lies rusty and unused in the bathroom cabinet.)

I decided to launch a fundraiser because I believe what PZ Myers has done to be wrong. I do not know if the allegations are true or false but as a skeptic and a reasonable person who draws conclusions based on available evidence, I consider these allegations to be completely without credibility because no evidence has been offered and the allegations are coming from an anonymous source. This is not evidence, this is hearsay!

Dear hypersceptics,

Dignity

One last breath
And then there's none.
I fear not death;
To all, it comes.
But in that bed
Please let me
Have a shred
Of dignity.
Hear my voice;
Let me be still.
Leave me choice
To go at will.

To the tune of Botany Bay

I sing of the fabled Sage of Broad Stair;
A man of less brain than a well-known bear.
When I say that his wisdom is second to none
I mean to imply a negative sum.

Singing toorali-oorali-addity.
Singing toorali-oorali-ay.
Singing toorali-oorali-addity.
To the Great Kentish Sage give wassail.

The Old Ghey Goose

Accepting—for the sake of argument—
That life was shaped to his intent:
If he made gay cats, gay dogs, gay bears,
Gay elephants and lesbian mares, (more…)

A Creed Without A Name

I know by the smell of privilege, unearned;
I know by the smoke of book-shelves burned;
I know by the sound of the rasp-throated pious
Calling "Join us or die: you will not deny us."
I know, when unbending Right is proclaimed—
When human beings are fed to the flame
Of a Higher Truth which must be met;
When a person means naught in the face of a text; (more…)

Mint Sauce

They the shepherds, we the sheep.
We keep them in wool and meat.
Theirs to fleece, the willing flock,
Our altar is their butcher's block.

I could listen to music on the stereo
But, no, I'm bored.
I'd go for a walk, but there's nowhere to go;
Oh Gawd, I'm bored.
Pick up a book then put it down,
Walk the house around and around.
Flick through the channels on the box;
There's nothing on I want to watch.
Can't think of a thing I want to do
Can't shake this brain-borne lassitude.
I'm bored.
I'm bored!
