It's Official. We are SMRT (the address will be wearesmrt.com, which is just parked right now...), I'll get the actual survey results out soon, but I wanted people to have an opportunity to design a web banner if they wanted to. The deadline is 2 weeks from today to design your banner and email it to the email address I have on file.

Reminders:
- We are Skeptical Minds & Rational Thinkers
- We are not Ray-specific anymore (though we have been drifting from that for a bit), we deal with all... how should I put it... non-thinkers.

  5. I agree that name is perfect for your blog:

    And Froogie wants to say bad words:

    froggie
    utters
    crooked
    knowledge

    But when dealing with a Christian like me, I think all of you should:

    Be Loving & Openhearted With My Emotions

    Maybe all of you should read the:

  6. That's so awesome we finally have an official non ray specific blog name!!!

    I feel so out of it, I haven't been around much lately because of exams. :-(

    "Basic

    Leaving

    Dan,
    that's a "burlap to cashmere" song isn't it?? What ever happened to them??

  7. Wow Dan, you want atheists to blow you? I thought your lot were dead set against sex outside marriage?

    Or are you applying Bill Clinton's definition of sexual relations Dan? Or maybe Ted Haggards?

  10. Cool! I am looking forward to contributing to the blog! Do we contributors have to reregister?

  11. @Bob At this point, I don't know. I would like to make it so that answer is no, but you probably will :(

    @froggie Fuck yeah, why the fuck to you think I would change that shit? :)

    "Perhaps one of the most interesting words in the English language today is the word Fuck.

    Out of all the English words that begin with the letter F, Fuck is the only word referred to as The F word.

    Its the one magical word that just by its sound can describe pain, pleasure, hate and love.

    Fuck, as most words in the English language, is derived from German.
    The word Flicken which means To strike.

    In English, Fuck falls into many grammatical categories.
    As a transitive verb for instance, "John fucked Shirley", as an intransitive verb, "Shirley fucks."

    It's meaning is not always sexual.

    It can be used as an adjective such as, "John's doing all the fucking work."

    As part of an adverb, "Shirley talks too fucking much."

    As an adverb enhancing an adjective, "Shirley is fucking beautiful."

    As the object of an adverb, "Shirley is fucking beautifully."

    As a noun, "I don't give a fuck."

    As part of a word, "Abso-fucking-lutly" or "In-fucking-credible."

    And as almost every work in a sentence, "Fuck the fucking fuckers."

    As you may realize, there are very few words with the versatility of Fuck.

    As in these examples describing situations such as:

    Fraud: "I got fucked at the used car lot."

    Dismay: "Aww, fuck it!"

    Trouble: "I guess I'm really fucked now."

    Aggression: "Don't fuck with me buddy."

    Difficulty: "I don't understand this fucking question."

    Inquiry: "Who the fuck was that?"

    Dissatisfaction: "I don't like what the fuck is going on here."

    Incompetence: "He's a fuck off."

    Dismissal: "Why don't you go outside and play hide and go fuck yourself?"

    I'm sure you can think of many more examples.

    With all of these multipurpose applications, how can anyone be offended when you use this word?
    We say use this unique, flexible word more often in your daily speech.

    It will identify the quality of your character immediately. Say it loudly and proudly, FUCK YOU!"

    Dan, you hypocritical FUCK...we've seen the insult right here, with your cute little anagram at the top.

    Given how many times you've been corrected on your own blog, you've got no right to talk...especially after that ...Obama, in my opinion a possible candidate for being the Antichrist,... remark.

  13. @McGuyverJr: did you mean that "I" would have to reregister or "we" would have to reregister?

    Forgive my sensitivity...it's been a long week for me.

  14. Dan,
    Fuck You.

    Are you really so sennsitive that you always have to ask everybody to be nice to you?

    Whats going on with that. You sound like a sniveling, whining, six year old kid that can't get their own way.

    I'm not kidding about this. You present youself as soom poor defensless little girl rather than someone that supposedly has a pair of balls.

    Stand up and act like you got some balls Dan.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Mac,
    Thanks for clearing that up.

    EXCEPT: you made me laugh and that is a very bad thing today as I had a bit of an accident yesterday morning and ended up with a cracked rib.

    All, do not read humor with a cracked rib. Laughing, giggling, chortling become excruiciatingly painful.

    No not really, it would be re-registering for everyone.

  18. Froggie,

    To me: "Are you really so [sensitive] that you always have to ask everybody to be nice to you?"

    Psst, your student is showing.

    Here Froggie, let me help you out with this:

    Be
    Loving &
    Openhearted
    With
    My
    Emotions

    Is that a little clearer for your brain?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Dan,
    If I did that to you on your blog you would be screaming AD HOMINEM from the roof tops. Just more of your hipocrisy.

    And more of your infantile demeanor.

    Get some balls, Dan, you whining sniveler.

    What he is saying is "don't contrdict me or argue with me because I know I am right all the time and it makes me feel bad when you SMRT people use logic and reason to show I am nuts."

    Dan, you get exactly the mock and scorn that you are bringing on yourself, this very thread is proof of that.

    Get some balls.

  21. Dan,
    I am still hoping you don't use the bible as an excuse to beat those beautiful cildren of yours like you used th bile to half starve your sick wife to death.

    Your silence on this matter is making me wonder.

    ReplyDelete
  22. By the way, Dan, I didn't know you were bi-sexual.

    Maybe we can hook up sometime.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really do pity Dan a great deal.

    What a sad, angry, insecure little man.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm sure Dan is a "little" man in more ways than one.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I guess Maragon and Froggie answered my question with a resounding, NO!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, and Rufus stop peaking, it makes me uncomfortable.

    Toodles

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's funny, sweetie - you linked me to a blog post from months ago on a blog that I don't read and assert that I've answered a question of yours.

    That simply doesn't make very much sense, now does it, dear?

    There's a difference between having a sense of humour and letting you get away with being a douchebag to people and then passing it off as humour when called on it.

    You're incredibly nasty to anyone who disagrees with your worldview - we all know it.

    I wonder who Jesus would ask to blow Him?

    ReplyDelete
  28. And Dan runs away with his little shriveled up dick.

    Not surprised.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Maragon,
    I have seen some rather convincing arguments that Jesus was gay, but I consider them somewhat anecdotal.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oooooooor, maybe Dan wasn't shriveled up after gazing on the countenance of Maragon's ample anatomical features.

    Those fundies ar always resisting those dirty filthy sexual urges.

  32. Maragon,

    "You're incredibly nasty to anyone who disagrees with your worldview - we all know it."

    If I offended you with that "Be Loving" comment then I apologize, it was only meant as a light hearted playful poking of y'all.

    I just felt that since you are an author of "The Raytractors" that you would have a slightly thicker skin then you apparently are showing here but I guess I was wrong about that.

    I will admit that a comment like that isn't very Christ like, and has a more mature or adult motif. I thought sharing a witty nugget from Mike Myers would be entertaining but if it binded you in rage then I should refrain from that type of humor. After all, I don't want to be a stumbling block for you and your relationship with God, if I even have such power.

    Thanks for sharing.

  33. Run for your lives!

    Maragon is binded in rage!

    I can feel the rage from here for christ's sake!

  36. I'm sorry for driving this thread on-topic, but...

    I love the irony inherent in the new name. It was played on well in the Simpsons episode, and turning it into an acronym simply increases.

    I know. Dan nearly brought about the demize of the Raytracors in one fell swoop.

    We barely got outta that with our skinz intact.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Actually, that was quite pathetic. Dan started up the engine of humor but he couldn't hang with it to the conclusion.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Froggie,

    "Dan started up the engine of humor but he couldn't hang with it to the conclusion."

    Now the joke is on you. You didn't notice the slight ironic sarcasm in my last post?

    "slightly thicker skin"
    "binded you in rage"
    "stumbling block for you and your relationship with God"

    Should I get a job with Stephen Colbert?

    Rufus picked up on the humor with:

    "Rationality is my stumbling block to the Biblical god."

    quite pathetic, student.

  40. Dan,

    "slightly thicker skin"
    "binded you in rage"
    "stumbling block for you and your relationship with God"

    Yes, you fooled me.

    I thought you were preaching at me.
    Don't give up your day job to become a comedian and I won't either.

    Oh, I forgot, you don't have a day job.
    Carry on.

    Sorry, froggie - minus 2 points for mixed metaphor.

    "Dan started up the engine of humor, but his low octane mirth failed to result in combustion."

    - grammar police now returns to lurking.

  42. I know I am late to the party, but if I had known about this blog sooner, I might have donated my domain... laytheism.com

    I think it has a nice ring to it.

    wearesmrt is a little awkward and reminds me of "bright", which I have never cared for. Best of luck though!
