    I thought that a hard worm was good to find?

    Yeah, but is it circumcised?

    Try to make sense of that, IDiots.

    Nothing makes sense in the light of “design,” that’s for fucking sure! Meanwhile, we learn about our origins by recognizing evolution’s limits and possibilities, not by the unfathomable whims of some mindless “god.”

    Looks like a combination @ sign and question mark to me.

    The juxtaposition of that picture and the “So that’s paradise?” piece is just too funny.

    Yeah, but is it circumcised?

    I don’t know, but apparently it has big lips.

    Reading pharyngula I sometimes feel like I’m having my sexuality trolled.
    Very beautiful.

    Anyone else getting religious ads in the RSS feed? Last one I saw was about becoming a pastor.

    @coke: that’s not a bad job of targeted marketing. I’ve been ordained for years; there’s no reason that others on this feed might not be interested in doing the same. :)

    FWIW, my RSS feeder ads are encouraging me to spend more on the American Express card that I don’t have. But whatever pays the bills to keep this show on the road is fine with me.

    I read that the pic was posted in “Onanisms.”

    Well, it is translucent enough to see the bone marrow.

    Regarding ordination, it’s rather easy to get. There are several online sites that will ordain you for free, or a small charge, including atheist ordination. I got my original odination years ago before I became a devout atheist so I could legally officiate marriages in my state of Arizona. Preaching or developing a following never entered into my goals.

    As soon as I discovered I could set up an organization or business name by filing with the Secretary of State office for a mere $10 at the time, I filed for the name, Arizona Church of Love and Harmony and promptly cross issued ordination certificates for myself and my wife in that name. I can go to my file and produce several ordination certificates if I need to. So far, no need and I have officiated hundreds of weddings.
    As long as I put the “Rev.” in front of my name, no questions.

    Not all states are as liberal as Arizona, I understand. Check your states’ requirements.

    That’s the trouble with invertebrate zoology in general: most of the organisms it considers interesting are disgusting marine-dwelling worms.

    disgusting

    Nonsense. Why, this one right here is a fellow deuterostome, about which ‘kipedia has this to say:

    Acorn worms are considered more highly specialised and advanced than other similarly shaped worm-like creatures. They have a circulatory system with a heart that also functions as a kidney. Acorn worms have gill-like structures that they use for breathing, similar to the gills of primitive fish. Therefore, acorn worms are sometimes said to be a link between classical invertebrates and vertebrates. Some also have a postanal tail which may be homologous to the post-anal tail of vertebrates…part of the dorsal nerve cord is often hollow, and may well be homologous with the brain of vertebrates.

    Looks to me like marine biology…

    disgusting

    Disgust is in the eye of the beholder. I think the critter looks quite suave and debonair.

    Fascinating. Although it does look rather…ahem, naughty. Circumcised? Looks more like it’s emerging from a sheath, forget foreskin.

    Here’s a joke:

    The priest in a small Irish village loved the rooster and ten hens he kept in the hen house behind the church. One Sunday morning, before mass, he went to feed the birds and discovered that the cock was missing. He knew about cock fights in the village, so he questioned his parishioners in church.

    During mass, he asked the congregation, “Has anybody got a cock?” All the men stood up.

    “No, no,” he said, “that wasn’t what I meant. Has anybody seen a cock?”

    All the women stood up.

    “No, no,” he said, “that wasn’t what I meant. Has anybody seen a cock that doesn’t belong to them?”

    Half the women stood up.

    “No, no,” he said, “that wasn’t what I meant. Has anybody seen MY cock?”

    Sixteen altar boys, two priests, and a goat stood up.
