Age of Kali – Bangladesh – A Sad Story

Taslima Nasrin wrote about the murder of a Bangladeshi blogger. In January I wrote about the attempted murder of another. Their crime was to be an atheist.

It’s NSFW or NSFL (Gore and Death Imagery) but it is a fact of life for people living in the Sub-Continent.

If you really want to see what Taslima has to face down, if you want to see her real detractors then I suggest you read the comments. There is no more damning piece of evidence about the damage that blind faith can do to you.

The comments are also NSFW/L.

Omnipotent, Omnipresent yet requires Bodyguards

I never really understood why any god would require a bodyguard from mere humans.

But apparently Allah does.

Asif Mohiuddin was operated on for more than 3 hours and is still in a critical condition after he was set upon by three of Allah’s bodyguards. The reason? He was one of those “militant atheists” we keep hearing about who reduce the rights of women and gays and who fight wars in the name of Dawkins.

Oh wait… all he did was run a blog.

Apparently Allah cannot fight his own battles. Neither can the tooth fairy to be honest.
