Attenborough, atheist and not gonna take it any more.

David Attenborough has been in the news recently, with creationists sending him hate mail because of their ignorance. From the Guardian:

In an interview with this week’s Radio Times about his latest documentary, on Charles Darwin and natural selection, the broadcaster said: "They tell me to burn in hell and good riddance.

Attenborough has hit out again with a criticism of Genesis. From the Independent:

Sir David, 82, said the devastation of the environment has its roots in the first words that God supposedly uttered to humankind, as detailed in Genesis 1:28: "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."

This observation is completely justified. At the high of Christendom before the Black Plague nature had been devastated by Christian superstitions. Cat and other animals that were considered to be in league with the devil. Monks and monasteries overfished many lakes and large ponds due to the tradition of eating fish on Friday. Then of course when the Black Plague reduced all human influence on nature.

I think you could extend Attenborough point beyond nature. The point could be made that the Christian religion want command of the whole world including humans, and human thought. A superiority complex is what I’m driving at, and sadly most religions have them.

So, Islam, You going to sort yourself out?

You know, sometimes it just get to sad.

More Islamist terrorism. What’s interesting is that reasonable members of Islam are distancing themselves from these attacks, but the problem is these attackers were acting within the bounds of Islamic scripture.

Youtube legal fight: VenomFangX v Everyone with an Education

Interesting to say the least. A young Earth creationist Youtube user, VemonFangX VenomFangX, has gone on a DMCA rampage.

Unfortunately he missed with the wrong bunch of Youtube users, Thunderf00t being one of them.

Here are some of the videos explaining the situation:

Overall makes for a interesting case study and should make people think twice before sending out DMCA’s.

And here are some other Thunderf00t for your viewing pleasure.
