Scumbag Dumbledore: Hilarious Dumbledore Memes That Make His Douchery Shine If you’ve seen all the Harry Potter movies like I have, or read all the books (like I haven’t), you probably have a bad opinion of the ‘kind’ wizard Dumbledore. Personally, I think he’s an ass. He’s made countless mistakes and bad decisions, yet somehow everybody ends up calling him wise. Except for the internet. There’s a new trend going around: Scumbag Dumbledore memes. I’ve gathered the most funny ones and presented them below. Contrasting and categorization of emotions The contrasting and categorisation of emotions describes how emotions are thought to relate to each other. Various recent proposals of such groupings are described in the following sections. Contrasting Basic Emotions The following table, based on a wide review of current theories, identifies and contrasts the fundamental emotions according to a set of definite criteria. The three key criteria used include: 1) mental experiences that have a strongly motivating subjective quality like pleasure or pain; 2) mental experiences that are in response to some event or object that is either real or imagined; 3) mental experiences that motivate particular kinds of behaviour. The combination of these attributes distinguish the emotions from sensations, feelings and moods.
Cheating and God: Study ties willingness to cheat, viewpoint on what God is like - latimes.com A new study on the link between one's view of God and willingness to cheat on a test is the latest example of social scientists wading into the highly charged field of religion and morality. The study, titled "Mean Gods Make Good People: Different Views of God Predict Cheating Behavior" was peer reviewed and published earlier this month in the International Journal for the Psychology of Religion. In line with many previous studies, it found no difference between the ethical behavior of believers and nonbelievers.
Azeusism has caused every major atrocity in modern history! It happens far too frequently -- the lame atheism has caused more atrocities/death than Christianity/Islam/whatever argument. This means that a compelling response has not been found. If you are talking to a Christian who makes that argument, consider making the following argument. Age of Deceit WATCH FOR FREE on ARCHIVE.ORG April, 2014 – Filmmaker, podcaster and blogger Gonzo Shimura has officially released his much anticipated sequel documentary AGE OF DECEIT 2: Alchemy and the Rise of the Beast Image. After releasing his first film, AGE OF DECEIT: Fallen Angels and the New World Order on YouTube in 2011, which has received nearly 3 million views to date, Gonzo decided to tackle the topic of ancient alchemy and how it’s philosophical principles tie into current trends of science and technology and future events described in the book of Revelation. The film begins with a chilling warning to modern Christians about the oncoming persecution and marginalization of those who believe the Bible to be true and Jesus Christ to be our Lord and Savior in America. Then after introducing transhumanism, technocracy, and the singularity with a thought provoking montage of music and imagery, Gonz leads right into the topic of ancient alchemy and the journey begins.

The Trials & Travails Of Sheltering Suburban Mom Ah, we all know the type: the nosy next-door neighbor with a panache for telling you your own business (and everyone else’s, for that matter). The type of person who somehow missed the page about judgment in the Bible even though she claims to be a born-again Christian. And so we present to you the Sheltering Suburban Mom meme: How did life originate? How did life originate? Living things (even ancient organisms like bacteria) are enormously complex. However, all this complexity did not leap fully-formed from the primordial soup. Instead life almost certainly originated in a series of small steps, each building upon the complexity that evolved previously:
Why Atheists Are More Intelligent Than the Religious It is natural to believe in God, so more intelligent individuals are more likely to be atheists. Religion is a cultural universal, and its practice is observed in every known human society. However, as I explain in earlier posts (Why do we believe in God? Part I , Part II ), recent evolutionary psychological theories suggest that religiosity may not be an adaptation in itself but may be a byproduct of other evolved psychological mechanisms variously called the “animistic bias” or the “agency-detector mechanisms.” These theories contend that the human brain has been selected to agency – personal, animate, and intentional forces – behind otherwise natural phenomena whose exact causes cannot be known. This is because agency – and making a Type I error of false positive – makes you a bit paranoid, but being paranoid is often conducive to survival.
Atheism "Divine Fury" by Sabina Nore.Traditionally speaking, most religions were especially hostile towards women. While some atheists consider themselves as spiritual people, most do so because they haven't yet found the appropriate "label" for themselves. Atheism is, simply put and by definition, the belief that there is no God nor divine presence.

The Blog : Morality Without “Free Will” From the Free Press: A belief in free will touches nearly everything that human beings value. It is difficult to think about law, politics, religion, public policy, intimate relationships, morality—as well as feelings of remorse or personal achievement—without first imagining that every person is the true source of his or her thoughts and actions. And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion. Invisible Pink Unicorn The Invisible Pink Unicorn (IPU) is the goddess of a parody religion used to satirize theistic beliefs, taking the form of a unicorn that is paradoxically both invisible and pink. She is a rhetorical illustration used by atheists and other religious skeptics as a contemporary version of Russell's teapot, sometimes mentioned in conjunction with the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The IPU is used to argue that supernatural beliefs are arbitrary by, for example, replacing the word God in any theistic statement with Invisible Pink Unicorn. The mutually exclusive attributes of pinkness and invisibility, coupled with the inability to disprove the IPU's existence, satirize properties that some theists attribute to a theistic deity.
