They are, actually. I worked on that passive aggressive thing for months.

Thanks, man. Go fuck yourself.

I agree with that assessment too. I now consider Bama to be an NFL team slumming in the NCAA.

I also think UGA will be this year's sacrificial lamb at the SECCG. That is, unless they follow their usual pattern and lose to a South Carolina or a Kentucky along the way. Barring that, the Dawgs are good enough to make Bama break a sweat in Atlanta.

I saw a headline "Former Alabama Coach To Be Interim UTEP Coach" or some such tripe. I nearly spit my coffee out when I clicked and saw the picture of Price (I know he coached UTEP for a while).

AA: good to see you

Doing alright. Just trying to get things rolling in Fayetteville.

I hope the Mexican food in Birmingham is still the best north of the Rio Grande.

Lewis Grizzard (Peace be upon him) wrote a column back in the 70's when Birmingham voted to approve dog racing. He said the city would finally get some decent Italian restaurants.

Today is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the door of the Catholic Church in Wittenburg, Germany, thus starting the Reformation.

Congratulations to my Protestant friends on this landmark occasion. Or can any of you agree that today is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the door of the Catholic Church in Wittenburg, Germany, thus starting the Reformation, and that it is a landmark occasion?

It won't have happened 500 years ago until November 10 due to the change from the Julian calendar to the current Gregorian calendar.

You mean the Protestants can’t even agree on the calendar?

I can agree that it was an important first step in breaking the power and authority of the catholic church, which it surely did, and dispersing its ideas amongst the masses for their own unmediated consideration, where they were sure to be (as you yourself recognize, with an unseemly admixture of rue and mirth) discussed, disputed and diluted, which thankfully is exactly what happened. 500 years later and the dilution continues apace. Seems like a long time, but the catholic church was 1500 years in the making and in only 500 years since Luther. the power and authority of the catholic church in particular and christian ideology in general continues to ebb. These things take time...

Methinks your pronouncement of the demise of the Catholic Church is premature. From that right wing religious nutjob publication, the New York Times:

Church Helps Fill a Void in Africa

LAGOS, Nigeria —

The Roman Catholic Church’s explosive growth here and across Africa has led to serious talk of the possibility of an African cardinal succeeding Pope Benedict XVI, and clerics from Nigeria, Ghana and the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has the continent’s largest Catholic population, have been mentioned as top contenders.

With 16 percent of the world’s Catholics now living in Africa, the church’s future, many say, is here. The Catholic population in Africa grew nearly 21 percent between 2005 and 2010, far outstripping other parts of the world. While the number of priests in North America and Europe declined during the same period, in Africa they grew by 16 percent. The seminaries, clerical officials here say, are bursting with candidates, and African priests are being sent to take over churches in former colonial powers.

“The church offers the best schools, social services, medicine. The God talk in Africa is a mark of the failure of the economic, social and political system,” Bishop Kukah added, “We are being called left, right and center to mend the broken pieces of what are considered the failing states of Africa.”

In Congo, where the number of Catholics has more than tripled in the past 35 years, Archbishop Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya of Kinshasa has fiercely criticized the government, including the tainted election results that secured President Joseph Kabila’s re-election in 2011.

In Nigeria, where over $5 billion was reported missing from a minerals ministry on Friday, the latest in a series of seemingly endless government scandals, the church offers an alternative to a life mired in corruption, poverty and hopelessness.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/24/world ... frica.html


Why aren't the Africans flocking to atheism? And what are atheist groups doing to help Africans improve their lives like the Catholic Church is?

Free porn and openly gay people are merely two of the more timely (and decisive) bits of proof that assure me that my prediction is accurate. I didn't say the church was dead, I said it was dying, and it is, at an ever increasing rate. Won't be in our lifetime, or even this century and maybe not the next, but 100 years from now the catholic church and most organized religion will be regarded as quaint anachronisms. At any rate, the church's current impotence to stop or even influence issues like pornography, gay rights and legalization of marijuana - issues over which they once had supreme and final authority - as well as many others is certainly refreshing...

Don't worry, Prof, there will always be poor, ignorant, superstitious people out there to latch on to religion as a last gasp for some hope.
