    Link: Cause Of Earthquakes Finally Discovered! - Iranian cleric discovers that the cause of earthquakes isn`t tectonic plate shift. Davymid will agree I`m sure.

    "Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes."

    Yes that logic is perfectly linear and rational. Son of a bitch, Iran, stop being so full of fundies.

    Wow, that`s crazy.

    Surely if it WAS down to the health care bill then the volcano would have clouded over America. Rather than, say, a continent on the other side of the Atlantic.

    Just googled it, even though I head it live.

    Still looks to be the same as when I heard it.

    He was lampooning Obama`s quote that the health care bill passage didn`t cause Armageddon.

    It was basically "SEE BARRY! SEE! IT DID CAUSE ARMAGEDDON! lol."

    ""Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes," he said. "

    By god, then we must all be completely obliterated right now, huh?

    Reminds me of the Kabbalah classes my mom dragged me to. Some idiot was preaching as to the cause of Katrina was that so much negative energy was amounted in one place. Upon asking how this could be, he answered me with: "Everyone leaves a little bit of poison."

    So by that same logic, amounting all the corrupt businesses, wars, politicians and people in this world, the planet should not even exist as it should have been wiped out by the severe negative energy.

    ...and yet here we are.

    Every day I see half-naked women walking around town (I work late, so I`m walking home through town at the same time people are going to pubs and clubs) and what clothes they are wearing are designed to be immodest. Even in winter, which is silly. It`s all very well when it`s warm, but it`s below freezing at night in winter around here. Put a coat on!

    I would say that men are being led astray, but on the whole they don`t need any leading.

    Obviously this explains why the UK is racked by massive earthquakes every day.

    Back in the real world, earthquakes are so rare here that a tremor strong enough to knock ornaments off shelves is national news.


    What about immodestly dressed men "leading men astray"? Lots of that around here too. Maybe that causes volcanos and immodestly dressed women "leading women astray" causes hurricanes.

    Maybe religion causes stupidity.

    He`s no crazier than the pope or other senior holy men in the Catholic church. Sure didn`t the pope`s own preacher say last week that all Catholics must repent for the sins of paedophile priests. And don`t they believe that a man named Jesus, who was born to a woman who never had sex, came back to life after being nailed to a tree, and walked around as a zombie for six weeks before changing his mind and heading off again, and now when we eat bread `blessed` by a holy man, it changes (not symbolises, but actually metamorphoses) into the flesh of this 2000 year old zombie.

    Sure, its the muslims that are crazy.

    Just as Christians can`t be blamed for the WBC or the Pedopriests. But at least we do not let them run entire countries. (Ok, maybe the Vatican is technically a country but it`s a very small one)
