Is Your Beach Body Dangerous?

Is Your Beach Body a Harmful, Triggering or Otherwise Dangerous Symbol of Oppression Toward Women of Various Sizes in the U.K. and the U.S.?

In case you haven’t heard, London Mayor Sadiq Khan has banned this “offensive” or “misogynistic” ad. Another side effect of the fear of exposure to the “wrong” narrative disease. See Exposure Fallacy.

this post is very late, but, it was in my drafts, so here you go

Asking the question ‘is your beach body ready?’, is just like asking the question, ‘are you ready to show off your hard work?’. However, some have viewed this ad as being an attack on the malleable, vulnerable mind. Minds that can’t tell the difference between an ad, and real life; minds that can’t tell the difference between beauty standards for mainstream advertising and beauty standards for actual cultures and societies. I’ve got a question for you: who the hell and where the hell are these programmable humans?

Mere-Exposure Effect Fallacy

I have written about the fact that people actually do know what they think and why they think it, and they do not hold contradictory beliefs about any given subject. Go figure! This only seems counter-intuitive because the average person is terrible at articulating what it is they believe and why. Others, many of whom would like to think of themselves as the intelligentsia, are terrible at the Socratic method.

Third Wave Feminism is largely about telling people what to think, because the feminist actually thinks he/she has the power to do so


The Single Perspective

In terms of peoples’ world views, how people learn and how they change their minds, I have called my model on the neural physiological nature of our world views as the Single Perspective Hypothesis, namely, you hold one single cosmic perspective as opposed to two or more conflicting cosmic perspectives or understandings of nature.

Try speaking for yourself more often, and try ignoring the ads you don’t like. Some of us go to the beach for the beach itself, some of us go to the beach to show off, some for other things. If you’re the former, you should ignore this ad. Violent video games don’t make murderers, and ads aren’t to blame for bulimia.

Third Wave Feminism is largely about telling people what to think, because the feminist actually thinks he/she has the power to do so. Also because they believe the patriarchy has had, and does have the power to control the public mind. As I’ve said in the last post, and we can reasonably induce, that they’re thinking, ‘How could anyone possibly disagree with me?! The only way it’s possible is if their minds have been warped by propaganda!’ This would explain why most feminists aren’t as interested in debating as they are with trying to control the media, shutting down free speech, banning things, blocking people they disagree with and otherwise attempting to control the narrative. Because they don’t need to question whether they’re right or wrong, to empirically verify all their arguments, to stop calling everything and everyone ‘sexist’, they just know they’re right, and now it’s time to destroy the opposition. That’s why they fight dirty.


If you’re not interested in or trying to understand the positions or perspectives of those you disagree with, then you’re no skeptic.

Scalpel to the Scriptures Vol 06

Scalpel to the Scriptures: Vol 6

Every week I’m critiquing biblical scriptures. Last week: Genesis 3:8-24

Genesis Chapter 4:1-26 (KJV)

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.

And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

William Bouguereau, Cain and Abel, 1861, Oil on canvas

And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. Keep God happy by bringing him offerings, because it’ll be a while before Jesus comes to offer himself as the final ritual sacrifice.

And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering: –  Isn’t there somewhere else in the bible that says that God is not a “respecter” of persons? Oh, right, Acts 10:34 – “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons“. I guess God is no respecter of consistency.

But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. – Why?

And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. – Out of spite, or out of the desire to be respected and honored by his god? It seems God and Cain have a lot in common.

And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? – Still wondering if God really likes asking rhetorical questions, or if he was off somewhere watching badgers mate on another continent.

10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground. – Abel’s blood crieth, yet god doeth nothing to revive him. God is not a respecter of blood, unless it’s in the form of a burnt offering.

11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;

12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. – God is all about life-long punishment. Is this Cain’s first offense? If God was watching over Cain his whole life, how did he become so evil? 

13 And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear. – Of course Cain would say that…

14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. – When did the Earth become so populated? Also, how are they going to know about the murder?

15 And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. – God protects Cain by issuing a threat of sevenfold vengeance. Odd justice.

16 And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. – “Out from the presence of the Lord”? So the land of Nod was like the Bahrain of Saudi Arabia? If others on Earth could commit the ‘sin’ of slaying Cain, then the story of Adam and Eve’s original sin is turning out to be a major contradiction.

17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. – It’s funny listening to Christians talk about all the children Adam and Eve were supposed to have had. I’ve got some relatives I’d like to talk to about this.

18 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.

God is Loving? Well, you know, that’s just like your opinion man. – by God’s Autopsy

19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. – “God, Zillah isn’t obeying my every command, may I striketh her?” – Lamech

20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.

21 And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.

22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah. – Will Two-Ballcain ever muster the boldness to become twice as evil as Cain?

23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.

24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold. – …and, why is this?

25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. – I’m guessing they had a great deal of children before Cain and Abel.

26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord. – Tell your Christian friends and relatives to read their bibles.

Are You a Tolerant Or Anti-Theist Atheist

Being an anti-theist simply means you think the world would be better off sans religious belief. I believe all religion to be harmful if believed, yet I can still bring myself to appreciate the world’s religions as sources of mythical fantasy and literature.

God-Given Free Will Debunked

Free will as endowed by an omnipotent being is illogical. However, monotheists like Christians and Muslims don’t fully understand logic, so they continue to argue that free will justifies the unfairness and suffering we find in our world.

 – by @GodsAutopsyCom


 God, free will and power…

If your god has ‘all power’ and/or ‘omnipotence’, it is therefore logically impossible for it to give away any of that power and remain omnipotent. To the best of my understanding, an omnipotent god cannot share a reality with other potent beings (beings who can choose freely). Omniscience is also a subset of omnipotence, as the power to do all things contains the power to know all things.

Can you ever do a thing that God doesn’t allow?

If a sentient being can make a decision independent of his creator, then the being is, by definition, somewhat autonomous. If a being can really be autonomous, then he can possibly surprise or otherwise disrupt the plans or will of his master. If God can do absolutely anything, then he cannot possibly be surprised, interrupted, overpowered or otherwise made to do anything he doesn’t want to do. So the idea that a god could dislike or fight evil (or fight anything) is impossible. All events in the universe must therefore be part of or subject to the omnipotent creator’s will and wishes. Every rape, every murder, every stoning and every disease are all part of his plan, all approved by and enjoyed by the god who cannot be forced to do anything he doesn’t want to do. If there is an omnipotent god, then every evil act is just God doing evil to himself for personal amusement.

Monotheist v.s. an Atheist:

Monotheist: But God loved us so much that he suffers for us, he willingly suffers

Atheist: Why would god suffer for human pain and disease if he could bypass mortality and create man in paradise?

Monotheist: Because he wants to give us free will to choose violence and evil for ourselves.

Atheist: He knows what we will choose, therefore he could stop us anytime. If God knows the script, it’s as if he wrote it, we can’t deviate from it, therefore our actions are not our own, we would be puppets.

Monotheist: No, because God gives us the choice to choose him on our own, and then let’s us into heaven because of that choice.

Atheist: But, I don’t believe in him, so how can I choose?

Monotheist: Everybody believes in him! / You’re in denial! / You’ll get the chance to choose after you’re dead! / Just use Pascal’s  wager!

Atheist: I can’t actually live by Pascal’s wager if I don’t believe in it.

Monotheist: Yes, you can, you have no choice, don’t gamble. You’ll be sorry if you take the chance. After all, if you reject God, he will punish you for eternity.

Atheist: I must choose option 1: worship God for eternity, or option 2: suffer for eternity. I’m incapable of choosing option 2 because the perfect torture for eternity is in fact perfectly horrible. Lesser torture would be to worship a God I don’t respect. Both are torture! Option 1 is impossible to turn down. Looks like there’s no free will after all.

The Problem of Evil Explained

The problem of evil vaporizes any possible argument for a God who is both omnipotent and benevolent. Namely, if suffering is real, then the supreme being must be the author and master of such evil.

last updated 2015/8/05

 – by @GodsAutopsyCom

The Problem of Evil – Epicurus (341- 270 b.c.):

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?”


If you’re hearing this argument for the first time and you’re a monotheist, then you must at least concede that your god is both good and evil. That God is the arbiter of all pain, pleasure and suffering. The master of the world’s suffering can not be called ‘good‘ or ‘just‘ by any thinking person. God in the Bible is vengeful, full of wrath, jealous and capricious; many Christians agree.

Even the Christian Bible calls its god the author of evil:

Bible: Isaiah 45:7 (KJV) – “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

Bible: Amos 3:6 (KJV) – “Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?” (see biblegateway.com)

We have never been able to verify the use of prayer or conscious thought to influence the laws or properties of nature. Similarly, no one has ever been proven to use prayer, conscious thought or wishful thinking to persuade a god to bend the laws of nature in favor of themselves. So it stands to reason that until someone can demonstrate a god having broken the laws of nature, laws he supposedly dictate, then there is no reason to believe.

Remember, evidence is not personal or emotional. Evidence is testable, demonstrable and repeatable. That’s how science is done, and that’s why most serious scientists are atheists.

“…church collapses. Did you see the one in Sicily recently? The facade fell on 65 grandmothers at a special Mass. Was that evil? Was that God? If He’s up there, He just loves it. Typhoid and swans–it all comes from the same place.”

–Hannibal Lecter

Now, more evil brought to you by Yahweh, Allah or whoever:
Approved by Yahweh
Approved by Yahweh
Approved by Yahweh
Approved by Yahweh
Approved by Yahweh
Approved by Yahweh

Again, whenever I use the word ‘evil’, I use it in the colloquial sense, not the metaphysical or theological way.
