Horror Show Sunday: Executing Ducks

runducksrunOkay, that might be a bit arcane, even for me, but the Saudis have executed a man accused of being a witch and as we all ought to know, witches weigh the same as ducks, at least according to Monty Python logic, which is just about as applicable here as any other.

According to eyewitnesses, Muree bin Ali bin Issa al-Asiri was found to be in possession of magical talismans and books on witchcraft and sorcery.  He also admitted to having sex with two married women, although it is not clear if that had any bearing on his execution, as it is usually the women who are stoned for daring to have sex outside of marriage.

According to the BBC’s Arab Affairs Editor, Sebastian Usher, there is a very strong prohibition among Saudi Arabia’s hyper-conservative religious leaders against sorcery and witchcraft.  Mr. al-Asiri is not the first to be executed for similar crimes, at least two others were killed this year alone for performing spells and the like.  Even though witchcraft is not specifically identified as a capital crime, many among the fanatical Muslim faith demand death for fortune telling and faith healing and other “evil” acts.

Now I have no idea what al-Asiri was actually doing, if he was practicing witchcraft or not, but since witchcraft is about as ridiculous and laughable as religion, it shouldn’t matter.  He could have been dancing around clutching pig entrails for all I care, such things are nonsense and having a modern-day government sentencing someone to beheading because they were doing something absurd is, in and of itself, absurd.  However, that’s how the Muslim world works today and to a large degree, the Christian world as well.  These people are, in large part, terrified of magic, even though magic doesn’t really exist. Therefore, they killed a man for nothing and he’s neither the first, nor the last, who will be put to death for a laughable offense.

That earns the Saudi government yet another place on Horror Show Sunday.

  1. The only way primitive riogeiln exists today is through the child abuse of forcing it into very, very young children but thanks to better education and growing intellects so many teens are able to discover the truth, throw off the indoctrination and step into the real world!Academia states that in the absence of any sort of evidence of the existence of something it must be deemed not to exist until verifiable evidence is found thus god is held not to exist pending some sort of verifiable evidence.The bible is what is called Faction A fictional story set in a factual time and place. Thus the time, place and real historical characters are all correct but the fictional characters and stories are not!There is not one single mention of Jesus in the entire Roman record that is right not one! At the same time as he was supposed to have been around there were a number of Jews claiming to be the messiah all of whom are well recorded!There is not a single contemporary record from any source and even the bible mentions of him like all other references were not written until many years after his supposed death!He was supposed to have been a huge problem to the Romans and produced wonderful miracles but still not one contemporary record?Even the bible mentions of him like all other references were not written until many years after his supposed death!Pilate is recorded in the Roman record as a somewhat lack luster man but no mention of a Jesus, a trial or crucifixion that would surely have been used to make him look brighter!At best he was an amalgam of those others but almost certainly never existed!The Roman Emperor Constantine produced the bible and he was a pagan not god! He took the Jewish riogeiln, organized it into Christianity and then into the Holly Roman Catholic Church!! Not in Israel or any of the countries of supposed origin but entirely ITALIAN!Not one word of it is contemporary with the period and was not written until several hundred years after the period the story is set in!! How did the apostles write their books more than a hundred years after they would have been dead?The first person to provide a shred of verifiable evidence for God will become world famous and mega rich! Ain’t happened yet and it never will!So how does this primitive belief in a god survive? The answer is simple and very down to EarthAcceptance of a supernatural claim tends to promote cooperative social relationships. This communication demonstrates a willingness to accept, without skepticism, the influence of the speaker in a way similar to a child’s acceptance of the influence of a parent. By encouraging this kind of behavior where the most intense social relationships occur it facilitates the lack of skepticism and deters more open minded thinking.They are christian, Muslim or the other riogeilns depending where they were born simply because they were indoctrinated by their parents as very young children. They will go on to indoctrinate their own children and those will go on to indoctrinate their grandchildren!Atheists have the intellect to see through the conditioning and escape into the real world!Agnostics have the intellect to see through the conditioning but lack the courage to throw of the conditioning entirely.Sadly Christians, muslims and others are still held firmly prisoner by the self perpetuating brainwashing!
