Oopsie! The rapture is actually in October!

Says Harold Camping, the man behind the May 21st rapture nonsense.

An important rule to remember

My friend Jaki just sent me this shirt as a surprise gift:Though she didn’t send me the wine. That was a gift from the Imagine No Religion conference. And an aptly named on, too – Big Bang wine from Blasted Church winery. Guess I’ll have to refrain from blogging for the next hour or so…

From the Support Damon facebook group (which Damon’s brother is updating): “This may sound like a petty update but Damon’s parent’s (my parents as well, obviously) threw his possessions outside on their front porch and they have left town on “vacation.” They won’t answer our calls.

Damon Fowler’s graduation

It didn’t go well. There was prayer, there was mockery, there was biased reporting by the media. Shocking. Hemant has a detailed post. I’m busy with this conference, so I command you to go read it. Well, not if you have any blood pressure problems, because you will rage. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
