“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.” – Neil Armstrong (1930-2012)

Ted Haggard Haiku

Thought you pwned Dawkins

Thought you pwned God, but alas

You pwned your own Ass

Would you like to know more?

I read about Haggard in a local newspaper. And heard he's been fired or something by his church or flock or whatever. But has it even been proven that any of the allegations were true? I mean, consider the source.

If they were true... O what a hypocrite.

Had to look up what you were on about, and found this great exchange:

Ted Haggard: Sometimes it's hard for a human being to study the ear or study the eye and think that happened by accident.

Dawkins: I beg your pardon, did you say "by accident"?

Haggard: Yeah.

Dawkins: What do you mean "by accident"?

Haggard: That the eye just formed itself somehow.

Dawkins: Who says it did?

Haggard: Well, some evolutionists say it.

Dawkins: Not a single one that I've ever met.

Haggard: Really?

Dawkins: Really.

Haggard: Ohh.

Dawkins: You obviously know nothing about evolution.

Haggard: Or maybe you haven't met the people I have.



pwned indeed.

Oh, and in a related note. When is Dawkin's new book out? And ur... is it coming out in Singapore at all?

To pinoy stupid,

He admitted to his deeds himself - read the "Would you like to know more" link to USAToday, which is a reliable source.

As for how much of a hypocrite he is, you can search YouTube for his videos and decide for yourself.

To A.H.,

Did you watch the video? The way he puckered his lips in defiance to Dawkins... reminds me of someone we both know. Who has a sweet exterior concealing a heart of cold steel.

Anyway, NOBODY pwns Dawkins.

Maybe except Hello Kitty.

I think Dawkins' new book is already out in the USA (heard PZ Myers talking about it). Dunno when it'll come here.
