Over the years, humans have imagined God in many different ways.  Here's how he created animals.

The Alien movies are Satanic, apparently.  Here's another wingnut boycott (see last paragraph) which I predict will have no effect.

Repealing the ACA will save money! Here's what Republicans were celebrating (both found via Yellowdog Granny).  Trumpanzees are off in an alternate universe.  But now repeal faces a new obstacle.

26% of Americans now accept that the Bible is just a book of fables.

You are not your religion.

You can now get roof solar panels that look like regular shingles and last forever.

A 2012 experiment suggests that "ocean fertilization" can help fight global warming (found via this Crazy Eddie post).

Republicans have turned politics into reality TV.  Here's some of what they're facing from constituents (though one Congressman got a much better reception).  If they think they've got problems now, just wait till after Trump is gone.

Trump is torpedoing himself.  NRO thinks he can no longer be coherently defended; RedState thinks he'll quit.  For now, he's energizing the Democrats.

"Satan is my co-pilot".

Oddly enough there was a movie made from a very religious perspective called, "God is my co-pilot". I recall hearing it was shown to the flyers on a US carrier in Vietnam to utter derision. One quipped, "Yeah, so is Christ my Crew Chief?"

Nick: Yes, I'm sure they meant "Satan is my co-pilot" to be a play on that.

Jackie: Well, I'm kind of lazy and all this stuff is just things I ran across during casual internetting, not research. Even if I don't know where something originated, I at least know where I found it.
