Thanks to my boss, Michael, I have recently discovered the joy of YouTube at work. Michael likes to watch music videos and SEO (tradecraft) videos while he works. I have decided to follow his lead.
Thus far today, I have listened to Richard Dawkins, the famous atheist, debate the Bishop of Oxford, Nirvana “Smells like Teen Spirit, Erick Liang’s “Crazy Asian Mother”, the longest action video of all time, Gun ‘n Roses “November Rain” among others. My job rocks: I can work on general website link theory while I am entertained.
Richard Dawkins raises some great points on religion vs. atheism, I’m reading his book “The God Delusion” right now. He basically destroys most of the bullshit I thought never made sense when I was first told it by religious teachers in school and church. Yes, I unfortunately went to religious school. Not just religious school, but fundamentalist Christian school- the worst kind. “The Earth is 6,000 years old, no sex ed (you may try to do it if we show you), vote Republican, required church attendance and mandatory chapel weekly, Bible class as a part of the core curriculum (same amount of time spent on that as Math, Science & English), males are in charge of family/school/church/state (kinda cool 😉 ), Women have no sex drive (how they came up with that, i don’t know), husbands can discipline their wives and children, death penalty for every crime, only one token black person allowed” and on and on and on… I could go on forever with enough ridiculous things they taught to crush a soul. It’s amazing I survived.
