The First Well Done Fillet "God Botherer" of the week award goes to...

(This is very off topic by the way)

Drum roll please.........

Paul "the Earth was created in 7 days by some bloke with a white beard" Givan

Mr Givan wins this award for services to children and the country as a whole by helping to drag us all back to the Neolithic age via the medium of creationism. Saying that, he probably doesn't believe there was a Neolithic age. Mr Givan is a councillor for the DUP on Lisburn "City" Council. He put forward a motion that the council should write to all schools in the area asking them what provision they had made for the teaching of "creation, intelligent design and other theories of origin". And worse still the bloody motion was passed! Are you fucking kidding me? City councillors are the lowest form of political pond life as it is, now they are trying to get involved in what schools teach the young. Good Holy Fuck (pun intended) they can barely be trusted to get the bins emptied on time let alone the important task of educating our children.

not created in 7 days

Haven't the people of Lisburn suffered enough already what with having to cope with being Belfast's unwanted/illegitimate child? Now they want to confuse these children with mumbo jumbo about some big fella making the world in 6 days and taking a break on the seventh. You will be surprised to hear that this pisses right on my apron.

I have great respect for people of faith and am a big fan of religious freedom but to quote the homophobes out there, "I don't care what they do just as long as they do it in the privacy of their own front rooms." KEEP CHURCH & STATE SEPARATE! Attempt's to garner cross party/cross religious support was even more sickening,
"Deputy Mayor Ulster Unionist Ronnie Crawford appealed for cross party support for Mr. Givan's proposal pointing out Pope Benedict was a firm believer in creationism and adding there were many points on which he agreed with the Pontiff."
...reported the Ulster Star newspaper. Ha! What fucking hypocrites! As I've said before, anything and I mean anything, that unites the Free Presbyterians and the Catholic Church should be nudged right out of the way with a very large stick. Mark my words all the crazies in power in the North of Ireland will be at it soon, this mess is going to spread. Soon every half arsed redneck is going to be arguing with scientists and trying to burn down the University. And lets be clear here, when they say "other theories of origin" they really mean the Christian theory. There will be no room, I assume, for Jedi beliefs or Scientology. And if you are going to have the kids learn the the Christian theory you may as well teach them the how to feel the force too. Intelligent design my arse...

One of these is an example of intelligent design
the other isn't....

20 People trying to get Manuel's attention:

Hah! Nice unibrow, shrub.

Intelligent Design is shorthand for low IQ.

People who choose bad fiction over hard science are the lowest common denominator.

Manuel said...

"bad fiction over hard science" hahahahaha love that!

I heard a bit of that being debated on the radio yesterday and nearly swallowed my tongue.
Some twat was saying there was nothing older than 6000 yrs old on the planet even though there are bristle cone pines with 10,000 rings. he said he had read far and wide and seen no scientific evidence that the world was older.

If anyone tries to teach that creationism pish to Mini-me I will personally kick Mr.Givan and Co. up the tail-bone until they can feel the pain through their cheeks. The other cheeks.

Couldn't a man in your position see to it that they get poisoned when they come in for their traditional Sunday roast and Sparkling Ballygowan? Or perhaps slip in a wee tab o' the oul acid and make them disgrace themselves?

God, wouldn't you love to...

still lmbo over gw v iphone and intelligent design...

Sam, Problem-Child-Bride said...

Childbirth: the best argument I can think of against intelligent design - a committee of toddlers and airline managers could not have come up with a more inefficient way of birthing a person. Until I heard of Councillor Givan there. And saw his dead codfish eyes: clearly a throwback trait to our watery evolutionary beginnings before the long crawl up the beach.

I just want to be very clear.

I. DID. NOT. VOTE. FOR. HIM.

Old Knudsen said...

Well I think its a lovely idea, God actually made the world in 3 days and slacked off on the other 4, he just didn't want to promote a bad work ethic.
Northern Ireland being STILL a part of the Great evil empire of Britain and the rest etc does have an offical state religion so HA!, hearing stories of Noah and the raiders of the ark were happy times, God bless the DUP.

Mudflapgypsy said...

I never thought that this bullshit would reach our shores....
I nearly typed "Heaven help us" but that would be meaningless as I am a heathen.

I would ask these burghers about their thoughts on dinosaurs and ask them if they think their god is testing their faith (paraphrasing Mr Hicks here).

I work with some people who come off with some crazy shit like this, out of my earshot obviously and I get to hear about it.
I can't stand these holier than thou-I am saved-and you are not morons.

"I come not to the righteous but to sinners for repentance." That usually confuses them.

Sorry for the rant Manny.

Manuel said...

I had to get up at half eight this morning. Good grief, I had heard that there was another half eight but didn't realise it a true. Oh the humanity.....That's me fooked for the rest of the day.....

Conan Drumm said...

You got to love these Northern sects and their old time religiosity. The more mammon they have the more GOD they'll want. Give it just a few years and Big Ian will be remembered as a mad liberal who had strayed from the path.

The waiter, I feel, knows too much. Manuel, you will get ill if you are now to worry about the creationists et al.

Sassy Sundry said...

Sorry you got invaided by the wackos, Manuel. I thought they stayed in Kansas.

fatmammycat said...

OH jaysus. Here we go, the mangling of the word theory, the rants against carbon dating, the 'eviloution' of the eye. The shared ancestor query, the fact that a platypus exists, the fossil records, the lie that water does't exist on other planets, the other lie that hydrogen cannot convert, that dinosaurs were vegetarians, oh bollocks...it's never ending.

fatmammycat said...

Here Manuel, take a listen to this.

FMC: David from Belfast is my hero! Totally destroyed him..tremendous fun....

fatmammycat said...

I knew you'd get a kick out of him.

Dave said...

"Haven't the people of Lisburn suffered enough already what with having to cope with being Belfast's unwanted/illegitimate child?"

Listen here Waiter! Everyone knows that Belfast is just part of the greater Lisburn area. And the Ulster Star newspaper is without doubt the worst newspaper in the world...ever. It's not news, it's gossip.
"Plant pot stolen from mans garden shed" is the kinda shit that makes front page.

CITY of Lisburn
