Sorry. My Muslamic Raygun is out for repairs.

Aside from that... I'm supposed to be angry about Christmas, now? Should I get mildly peeved about Easter, or should I be incandescent about Easter because it's the more religious holiday, despite the pagan name? Of course, Christmas has even more pagan accretions, despite the Christian name; the Easter Bunny is Lutheran, whereas Christmas has a Yule log and mistletoe. What were we talking about again? Oh, yes: How atheists don't know about religion because we have a morality centered around the Golden Rule, as opposed to thinking innate characteristics are somehow the subject of morality even though that's logically incoherent and represents a gross misunderstanding of what morality even is. I mean, if someone were to imply that having attached earlobes was immoral, would you debate the morality of earlobe shapes? No! You'd think that person had a completely broken definition of "morality" for even imagining that ears could be immoral!

Now where were we? Oh, yes. My Muslamic Raygun got knocked out of calibration Tuesday last when I tried to heat up some rabbit and Pfalzer flung theses at me. Damn things gummed up the works but good.
