4M Report - 24 Feb 2006

feb 25th

latest from SABHA. awesome as usual.

in particular pay attention to steve farmer's peccadilloes. no wonder he comes across so poorly -- he's a brain-dead creationist, and proud of it too.

farmer in a recent paper argued that the indus-sarasvati writings do not constitute a language. i agree with him. the cryptic symbols are -- what else -- the tourist visas given to the 'tall, handsome, blue-eyed, blond' 'aryans' so they could arrive in india, be language teachers, marry local women, and sow some 'aryan' wild oats (aka genes) around! so now we have all the evidence for the Aryan Tourist Theory (TM)! QED.

see, i knew steve and michael witzel, my buddies, would prove me right.

SABHA - 4M Report Arvind Kumar, 24 Feb 2006

Your regular dose of pseudosecularism

  1. Muslim leader: Religion of Peace respects people of the Book

    In an email to a mailing list consisting of Communists, Kaleem Kawaja, a Muslim leader and author of the infamous article 'Brother, can you spare a tear for Taliban,' praised the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas for retaining a 'secular ethos' and having a record of social service and clean politics. He elucidated on the Religion of Peace:
    I hope Hamas, while retaining Islam for themselves and Muslim Palestinians, will make enough efforts to keep the Palestinian national movement, PLO and the Palestinian Authority genuinely secular and will give real equal space to Christian Palestinians. I hope they will appreciate the fact that Islam respects Christianity as a religion of the Book, and Christians as People of the Book.

  2. Creationist takes 28 years to realize he is a creationist!

    "Asst. to the Professor" Steve Farmer who believes in the Aryan Invasion Fantasy and is assisting in the assault on science in California, learnt in Dec 2005 that he was a creationist.

    (I found out today too that I'm a believer in 'Creationist Science')
    From page 337 of his PhD dissertation submitted in Sep 1977:
    Those who would see "a new proposition for European man" in the last part of this thesis should first note well God's words to man in Genesis 1:28: "And God blessed them, and God said to them, 'Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
    On page 317 of the same dissertation (essentially a string of quotes and paraphrases of the works of Giovanni Pico Della Mirandola and some others who have written about him, similar to the project reports submitted by eight grade social studies students in India), he laments his inability to reconstruct answers to more involved questions:
    We cannot, unfortunately, reconstruct the more complicated arguments, perhaps involving detailed numerical calculations, which Pico planned to use in answering more involved questions, such as determining the date of the end of the world.
    On how the world was created (page 351):
    Since God created the world through the powers of language, we might picture the Magus too directly . . .

  3. Denmark must talk with jihadists

    We have a solution for the crisis caused by the violent Islamic reaction to the publication of a few cartoons in a Danish newspaper. The Danish Prime Minister, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, should listen to his own advice.
    . . . the Danish Prime Minister and E.U. President, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, when asked why there was no reference to Kashmir in the agreed text, said: "To be honest and frank, we did not agree on a text. But I would like to... urge all parties in this conflict to find a peaceful solution... we did not think it would facilitate further progress to write a text."
    ... An aggressive Mr. Rasmussen said at least on three occasions at the press conference that India should talk to Pakistan.
    We urge all parties in this conflict to find a peaceful solution. We suggest Denmark enter into talks with the jihadists.
  4. Gunga Din teaches how to clean floors!

    Prof. Madhav Deshpande of the University of Michigan, who claimed that his family members worship both Shiva and Vishnu, claimed that the name of "god Shiva" was banned from their house and women in his family used to scrub floors with vertical motions of their hands, rather than sideways, as that resembled the Shaivite marks on the forehead! Strange way to worship both Shiva and Vishnu.

    The author of the article raises an interesting question:

    I have never heard of this wild allegation that Madhva Vaishnava women scrubbed floors in vertical motion, which would have required a conscious effort against the basic laws of Physics, given the fact that Indian women scrub floors in a squatting position.

  5. Steve Farmer: Two is a malevolent number!

    Here is more from "Asst. to the Professor" Steve Farmer's PhD thesis - two is an evil number!
    Jerome tells us that the number two is an "evil" number, a fact he uses to explain why on the second day of Creation we are not told "And God saw that it was good." In the properties of this malevolent number Jerome also . . .
    New Axis of Evil: 2, 13, and 0 (invented by Hindoos).
  6. Famous last words

    Did Gandhi utter the words 'Hey Ram' when he was shot? His personal assistant says 'No' and we won't question him, but here is a report on the last words of the first Prime Minister of Pakistan, Liaqat Ali Khan when he was shot:
    A photographer who had stood close by the dais said that Liaqat Ali's last words were of the Arabic quotation, "There is no God but One, and Mohammad is his Prophet."

  7. Right to proselytize inside temples?

    George Iype, a Christian journalist, quotes a Marxist politician who wants to let Christians and Muslims to enter Hindu temples at will:
    "This is religious discrimination and it should end," says Marxist leader C K Nanu, temple minister in the then Left Democratic Front government.

    "The time is up for another temple declaration allowing entry of non-Hindus to temples like Guruvayoor," Nanu added.

  8. Chance to win $10,000!

    IRFAN announces a reward of $10,000 for the first person who can prove that indologists are idiots. The rules? No forgery allowed, and if you prove the indologists to be idiots, you will be accused of forgery. The judges will be the indologists in question!
