Origami Boulder Company

slender fungus and I were talking in the comments section about the dude that hammered his roommate to death over toilet paper and the discussion reminded me of this site.

Hurry up and order now!

Be sure to read the "Letters from dumb dumbs" and learn why toilet paper is not the ideal material to make artwork from.

I thought a little humor was a little over due on this Blog.

Follow up: I remembered the song he had linked on his site and it was no longer there. Thanks to The Wayback Machine I was able to find an archive of the May 23rd, 2003 Site with a link to Sara Patterson's song Origami Boulder.

Enjoy ! :-)

Vatican To Muslims: Practice What You Preach

That seems to be the problem though... they do practice what they preach.
After backing calls by Muslims for respect for their religion in the Mohammad cartoons row, the Vatican is now urging Islamic countries to reciprocate by showing more tolerance toward their Christian minorities.

Tolerance toward Christians ? They can't even show tolerance toward each other.
After criticizing both the cartoons and the violent protests in Muslim countries that followed, the Vatican this week linked the issue to its long-standing concern that the rights of other faiths are limited, sometimes severely, in Muslim countries.
They're just doing what the false prophet instructed them to do.
"If we tell our people they have no right to offend, we have to tell the others they have no right to destroy us," Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Vatican's Secretary of State (prime minister), told journalists in Rome.
Vatican diplomats argue that limits on Christians in some Islamic countries are far harsher than restrictions in the West that Muslims decry, such as France's ban on headscarves in state schools.
Saudi Arabia bans all public expression of any non-Muslim religion and sometimes arrests Christians even for worshipping privately. Pakistan allows churches to operate but its Islamic laws effectively deprive Christians of many rights.
Some Islamic countries ? Other than Morocco... huh.
"Enough now with this turning the other cheek! It's our duty to protect ourselves," Monsignor Velasio De Paolis, secretary of the Vatican's supreme court, thundered in the daily La Stampa. Jesus told his followers to "turn the other cheek" when struck.
Yes, but he never said not to defend yourself when you run out of cheeks.
"Let's drop this diplomatic silence," said the rector of the Pontifical Lateran University. "We should put pressure on international organizations to make the societies and states in majority Muslim countries face up to their responsibilities."
Yeah, good luck with that.

Peaceful Sunnis Destroy Shiite Mosque

Insurgents (read Muslim Terrorists) posing as police destroyed the golden dome of one of Iraq's holiest Shiite shrines Wednesday, setting off an unprecedented spasm of sectarian violence. Angry crowds thronged the streets, militiamen attacked Sunni mosques, and at least 19 people were killed.

With the gleaming dome of the 1,200-year-old Askariya shrine reduced to rubble, some Shiites lashed out at the United States as partly to blame.

Muslims attack Muslims and we're somehow to blame ? Only followers of Islam could twist things like that.
President Bush pledged American help to restore the mosque after the bombing north of Baghdad, which dealt a severe blow to U.S. efforts to keep Iraq from falling deeper into sectarian violence.

"The terrorists in Iraq have again proven that they are enemies of all faiths and of all humanity," Bush said. "The world must stand united against them, and steadfast behind the people of Iraq."

British Prime Minister Tony Blair also condemned the bombing and pledged funds toward the shrine's reconstruction.

So they blow up their own shrines and we pick up the tab ? Huh ? (Yes I know about the schism, how some thugs murdered the designated successors of Mohammed (torment be upon him) to usurp the exalted leadership of Islam. But after reading the Koran I think Mohammed (torment be upon him) would approve. Sounds like something he would have done to achieve power. Be glad Jesus didn't have any kids.) So we rebuild their dome. So what ? That won't stop them from blaming us for what their own people did, or maybe not...

In the hours after the attack, more than 90 Sunni mosques were attacked with automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades, burned or taken over by Shiites, the Iraqi Islamic Party said.

This is going to get uglier.

At least the stupid cartoons will be pushed to the back burner while the peaceful Muslims kill each other... for now...

Drudge had the headline as: "Hell Unleashed"... it could have read "Islam Unleashed" and been just as accurate.

South Dakota Passes Abortion Ban

Think of all of those beautiful aborted fetuses

"We hope (Gov. Michael Rounds) recognizes this for what it is: a political tool and not about the health and safety of the women of South Dakota," said Kate Looby of Planned Parenthood, which operates the sole clinic providing abortions in South Dakota.

God forbid it should cut into her organization's profits from legalized murder.
It's not about "the health and safety of the women of South Dakota" Kate, it's about the legalized murder of children.

Terminated Over Toilet Paper

A man has been arrested for fatally beating his roommate with a sledgehammer and a claw hammer because there was no toilet tissue in the home, authorities said.

Not just a sledgehammer, not just a claw hammer, but both.

Crow told investigators that the men were fighting over the weekend about the toilet tissue when Matthews pulled out a rifle. Crow said he then began beating Matthews with the sledgehammer and claw hammer, according to an affidavit.

Matthews was beaten so badly he had to be identified through his fingerprints, detectives said.

I'm speechless.

Follow up: OK, seeing how no one else has said it....
"The man had an issue with the tissue."

Peaceful Muslims Continue To Kill Over Cartoons

Deadly protests over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad spread in Africa, killing 16 people in Nigeria on Saturday a day after claiming 11 lives in Libya.
Many of those who died in northern Nigeria were Christians, killed after a Muslim protest over the cartoons turned violent and rioters torched churches, shops and vehicles, police and local officials said.
It was the bloodiest protest so far over satirical cartoons of the Prophet, first published in a Danish newspaper, that Muslims regard as blasphemous.
"They went on the rampage, burning shops and churches of the Christians. The protesters killed the others. Some were even killed in the churches," said Joseph Hayab, north-west secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
The row over the cartoons also forced two ministers out of their jobs in Europe and the Middle East after 11 people died in the Libyan town of Benghazi in clashes on Friday between police and protesters who had tried to storm the Italian consulate.
Italian Reforms Minister Roberto Calderoli, who had the cartoons made into a T-shirt which he wore on television, resigned after he was widely blamed for the violence in Libya.
In Tripoli, the General People's Congress fired Interior Minister Nasser al-Mabrouk Abdallah and police chiefs in Benghazi, saying "disproportionate force" had been used.
The Congress hailed the dead as "martyrs" and declared Sunday a day of mourning across Libya.
As thousands of Muslims rallied in central London to keep up the cycle of cartoon protests around the world, there was fresh bloodshed in Pakistan when four people were wounded in gunfire at a demonstration in the central Punjab region.
Protests in Pakistan this week have resulted in at least five deaths, and on Friday it became the latest country where Denmark has decided to temporarily close its embassy. Denmark urged any Danes in Pakistan to leave as soon as possible.
In Nigeria, whose 140 million people are divided about equally between Christians and Muslims, 15 people died in the northeastern state of Borno and one died in the north-central state of Katsina, police spokesman Haz Iwendi said.
He said 11 churches had been torched in Borno and the army had been called in to state capital Maiduguri to impose order.
"The Muslim group came out to protest and the security forces tried to ensure it was peaceful, but there were some hoodlums in the crowd and somehow the security
forces shot one or two of them," said Hayab of CAN.
Thousands have been killed in Christian-Muslim clashes over the last five years in Nigeria. Twelve northern states, including Borno, introduced Islamic sharia law in 2000 which has contributed to the animosity between the two religions.

Wow. This is one peaceful "religion".
Did the Christians they killed have anything to do with the cartoons ? No. But their "divine prophet" told them to kill all non-believers anyway so this was just an excuse.

"Comments On This Blog Are Restricted To Team Members."

21st Century Kashmiri Nomad asked on his Blog
"Do You Have Any Muslim Friends ?"

I commented:
"As it is a violation of the Koran for any Muslim to be a friend of a non-Muslim unless the non-Muslim is converting to Islam... No. I do not have any Muslim friends. Nor would I ever want one."

DJEB responded with:
While not a Muslim, I have a copy of the Koran in my home, so if Noah Bawdy could direct me to the Sura in the Koran which tells my Muslim friends that we can't be friends, I would appreciate it. If not, I'll consider the comment to be just another bigoted person making just another bigoted remark (ah, the hazards of taking Ann Coulter seriously).

I responded with
Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. (But if they desist in their unbelief, then don't kill them.) 2:191-2

Let not the believers take disbelievers for their friends in preference to believers. 3:28

Don't believe anyone who is not a Muslim. 3:73

Don't be friends with non-Muslims. They all hate you and want to ruin you. 3:118

Oppose and admonish those who refuse to follow Muhammad. 4:63

Believers fight for Allah; disbelievers fight for the devil. So fight the minions of the devil. 4:76

Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them. 4:89

The disbelievers are an open enemy to you. 4:101

Do not choose disbelievers as friends. 4:144

Don't take Jews or Christians for friends. If you do, then Allah will consider you to be one of them. 5:51

Don't choose Jews, Christians, or disbelievers as guardians. 5:57

Don't make treaties with non-Muslims. They are all evildoers and should not be trusted. 9:7-9

Don't make be friends with your disbelieving family members. Those who do so are wrong-doers. 9:23

Stay away from non-Muslims. They are all liars. 9:107

Fight disbelievers who are near you, and let them see the harshness in you. 9:123

Need I go on ?"

What does Ann Coulter have to do with this ?

I was going to respond to Ted who said
"After all, there are some extremist Christians that can use the word of God as an excuse to commit violence, also. Timothy McVeigh wasn't Muslim."

"Timothy McVeigh did not do what he did because of any religion"
but all of a sudden the site claims that
"Comments On This Blog Are Restricted To Team Members."


Follow up, 6:00 PM 2/18/2006: 21st Century Kashmiri Nomad allowed me to post my reply to Ted. Beats me what the deal was with the "Team Members" only crap.

Follow up, 6:29 PM 2/18/2006: My posted reply to Ted:
"Timothy McVeigh did not do what he did because of any religion. Your point is moot."

To which 21st Century Kashmiri Nomad said:
"Noah, Ted's point maybe moot or not but what is your point ?"

To which I replied:
"I thought my point was clear...
Whereas it is against the doctrines of the "Religion Of Peace" for a good Muslim to be friends with a non-Muslim (let alone be at peace with them), then it is impossible for a non-Muslim to be friends with a Muslim. How can a non-Muslim be friends with a Muslim when Islam expressly prohibits Muslims from being friends with all non-Muslims ? In fact Islam teaches that all good Muslims must kill all unbelievers otherwise they will be considered to be unbelievers as well (meaning they should be killed by inference). Therefore it is by the very definition of being a good Muslim (which Islam itself defines) that makes it impossible for me to have a Muslim friend as such friendship is forbidden. It's a funny thing about friendship... it requires both parties to be friends. Is that clear enough ?

So I guess my point is. I don't have any Muslim friends because Muslims are forbidden to be my friend."

Do these people even understand their own "religion" ?

Follow up: 7:11 PM 2/18/2006:21st Century Kashmiri Nomad said:
Thank you for clearing up this point. I have finally seen the light of your argument. I shall not ask this question again, as I now know thanks to you, that must kill every non-muslim I see. By the way Noah how many years have you studied Quranic exgesis, Prophetic sayings and Aqeedah (Islamic belief) ...The only reason I ask is because your knowledge seems so deep......

I replied:
I've studied Quranic exgesis long enough to understand why Muslims fly planes into buildings, blow themselves up to kill innocent people, elect terrorist organizations to the Palestinian Parliament and kill people over cartoons. Can you possibly give us a deeper understanding of the "Religion Of Peace" other than the examples the peaceful practitioners show us every day ?

21st Century Kashmiri Nomad said:
I cannot give you a deeper understanding of the "Religion of Peace" and nor would I want to. You already have that as I stated in my last comment. But I do find it interesting that you probably without intent skipped the answer to my question which was how many years have you studied Quranic exgesis and Prophetic Tradition? The only reason that I ask this is because you were quoting chapter and verse so I assumed you had studied it in a formal setting somewhere. I hope I have not been wrong in my assumption. But I think that a lack of an answer on your part to this question speaks volumes but in the end I am only a humble goy and that to a muslim goym, so dont please don't take offence at any of my comments.

I replied:
I've studied since 9/11/2001.
I think that one day spoke more about the "Religion Of Peace" than any other. Please don't take offence. God knows we don't take offence to those acts. So again I pose the question; Can you possibly give us a deeper understanding of the "Religion Of Peace" other than the examples the peaceful practitioners show us every day ?

Then I realized the true "insult".

Goy ? Learning from a Goyim ?
You think I'm a Jew ?

By using those terms you reveal your true inoffensive nature ! Just as your "holy book" reveals the true nature of Islam and Muslims ! ROTFL !

I'm the bigot ? Look up Goy or Goyim at Dictionary.Com. This guy just showed what he and his "religion" is.

Update: 7:21 PM 2/18/2006: My final words:
"I leave you now for another day. You have in your own words shown why I have no Muslim friends."

As 21st Century Kashmiri Nomad took the time to post entirely about me, I thought it fair to post about him.

Peaceful Cleric Issues Reward For Murder

Nice beard.
A Pakistani cleric announced on Friday a $1 million reward for whoever kills the cartoonist who drew the controversial Muhammad cartoons that sparked raging protests numbering in the thousands.

Prayer leader Mohammed Yousaf Qureshi in the northwestern Pakistan city of Peshawar announced the bounty for killing the cartoonist to about 1,000 people outside the Mohabat Khan Mosque, reported the Associated Press.

Mohabat ? Moonbat ? Coincidence ?
"This is a unanimous decision by all imams (prayer leaders) of Islam that whoever insults the prophet deserves to be killed and whoever will take this insulting man to his end, will get this prize," Qureshi said, according to AP.

The Muslim religious leader said that whoever kills the "cursed man" will get $1 million dollars from the association of the jewelers bazaar, one million rupees ($16,700) from Masjid Mohabat Khan and 500,000 rupees ($8,350) and a car from Jamia Ashrafia as a reward. No one from the association was available to confirm the offer to AP.

So he offers a reward he can't pay. Much like Mohammed (torment be upon him).
According to the news agency, Qureshi did not name any cartoonist in his announcement and he "did not appear aware that 12 different people have drawn the pictures."

Again like Mohammeded (torment be upon him) this guy doesn't know how to count.
The cartoons, which were first printed by the Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, last September sparked massive protests worldwide in recent weeks after they were reprinted in European media and elsewhere. One of the cartoons depicts Muhammad wearing a turban shaped like a bomb with an ignited fuse. Muslims consider any depiction of Allah and their prophets to be blasphemy.

Actually Muslims themselves have depicted the false prophet's image themselves.

In a recently distributed prayer bulletin, the Religious Liberty Commission of the World Evangelical Alliance questioned the driving force behind the recent protests, noting that the 12 re-published cartoons of Muhammad are not the first time Islam's most revered prophet had been depicted.

"As this is not the first time Muhammad has appeared in art - even offensive cartoon art - why this uprising now?" questioned the RLC in its Feb. 15 Religious Liberty Bulletin. It noted that "there are multitudes of pictures of Muhammad in the world: in text books, history books, art works, and even cartoons."

I guess they just wanted to show us how peaceful and tolerant they are.
There was about 7,000 protestors in Rawalpindi, 5,000 in the southwestern city of Quetta and 5,000 in Karachi.

As violent protest continue to rage, the Denmark government has decided to temporarily close its embassy in Pakistan and advised its citizens to leave the country.

Denmark has already temporarily closed its embassies in Lebanon, Syria, Iran, and Indonesia following anti-Danish protests and threats against staff.

Violent protests from the practitioners of the "Religion Of Peace" ? Say it ain't so !

"In The Name Of Allah"

Sandi Dubowski, who won the Teddy gay and lesbian award in 2001 for his controversial doc "Trembling Before G-d," may cause an even bigger stir with "In the Name of Allah," which explores the struggles of homosexual Muslims.
Gay Indian Muslim helmer Parvez Sharma is directing the pic, which looks at gay, lesbian, and transgender Muslims across the Muslim and Western worlds.

"The world right now needs to understand Islam, and these are the most unlikely storytellers of Islam," Dubowski said, who is producing 'Allah.'

Sharma and Dubowski plan to submit the pic to all major festivals in the Muslim world as well as in the West, but if it's rejected, Dubowski said, "We'll find ways of screening it in every Muslim nation, even if it's underground."

This should go over well in the tolerant world of Islam....

New Required Reading: Prophet Of Doom

Islam is a caustic blend of regurgitated paganism and twisted Bible stories. Muhammad, its lone prophet, conceived his religion solely to satiate his lust for power, sex, and money. He was a terrorist. And if you think these conclusions are shocking, wait until you see the evidence.
Read this and understand.

There can never be peace with the "Religion Of Peace".

If we don’t shed our ignorance of Islam, many more will perish.

Calvin and Hobbes -- and Muhammad

A great piece, this time on the "Religion Of Peace" by the always biting Ann Coulter. Some my favorite lines from it:

As my regular readers know, I've long been skeptical of the "Religion of Peace" moniker for Muslims -- for at least 3,000 reasons right off the top of my head. I think the evidence is going my way this week.

But three cartoons made political points.
One showed Muhammad turning away suicide bombers from the gates of heaven, saying "Stop, stop -- we ran out of virgins!" -- which I believe was a commentary on Muslims' predilection for violence. Another was a cartoon of Muhammad with horns, which I believe was a commentary on Muslims' predilection for violence. The third showed Muhammad with a turban in the shape of a bomb, which I believe was an expression of post-industrial ennui in a secular -- oops, no, wait: It was more of a
commentary on Muslims' predilection for violence.

In order to express their displeasure with the idea that Muslims are violent, thousands of Muslims around the world engaged in rioting, arson, mob savagery, flag-burning, murder and mayhem, among other peaceful acts of nonviolence.

Muslims are the only people who make feminists seem laid-back.

Peaceful Ahmadinejad: Israel 'will be removed'

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Saturday that the Palestinians and "other nations" will eventually remove Israel from the region.

The president said that the results of the parliamentary elections in Palestine and the victory of the Hamas group "clearly showed what the people really want."

That much I agree with him on. The peaceful Palestinians showed that they have no desire for peace.
While chanting "Death to America", "Death of Israel" and "Nuclear energy is our undisputable right", the crowd walked toward the Azadi (Freedom) Square in Tehran where Ahmadinejad held his annual speech.

"Those who insulted the prophet should know that you cannot obscure the sun with a handful of dust. The dust will just get back and blind your own eyes," he said.

The crowd replied to his remarks with "Death to Denmark" slogans.

That sounds pretty peaceful to me.

US To Strike Iran ?

Strategists at the Pentagon are drawing up plans for devastating bombing raids backed by submarine-launched ballistic missile attacks against Iran's nuclear sites as a "last resort" to block Teheran's efforts to develop an atomic bomb.

As they should.
The prospect of military action could put Washington at odds with Britain which fears that an attack would spark violence across the Middle East, reprisals in the West and may not cripple Teheran's nuclear programme. But the steady flow of disclosures about Iran's secret nuclear operations and the virulent anti-Israeli threats of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has prompted the fresh assessment of military options by Washington. The most likely strategy would involve aerial bombardment by long-distance B2 bombers, each armed with up to 40,000lb of precision weapons, including the latest bunker-busting devices. They would fly from bases in Missouri with mid-air refuelling.

Spark violence across the Middle East ? As opposed to all the non-violence across the Middle East we've all come to know and love ? Reprisals in the West ? As opposed to what we've all seen these past couple of decades ? They declared war on us and continue to openly say so. All options should be investigated and all contingencies should be planned for. The worst thing that could happen is for these barbarians to get nuclear weapons.

Iran was last weekend reported to the United Nations Security Council by the International Atomic Energy Agency for its banned nuclear activities. Teheran reacted by announcing that it would resume full-scale uranium enrichment - producing material that could arm nuclear devices.

Looks like they're leaving us little choice.

The White House says that it wants a diplomatic solution to the stand-off, but President George W Bush has refused to rule out military action and reaffirmed last weekend that Iran's nuclear ambitions "will not be tolerated".

Sen John McCain, the Republican front-runner to succeed Mr Bush in 2008, has advocated military strikes as a last resort. He said recently: "There is only one thing worse than the United States exercising a military option and that is a nuclear-armed Iran."

Senator Joe Lieberman, a Democrat, has made the same case and Mr Bush is expected to be faced by the decision within two years.

By then, Iran will be close to acquiring the knowledge to make an atomic bomb, although the construction will take longer. The President will not want to be seen as leaving the White House having allowed Iran's ayatollahs to go atomic.

Iran must be stopped.

TYAT: The Nightmare Began

Ten years ago tonight.

It was a Tuesday.

You picked me up from work.

You wasted little time.

You said you had changed your mind.

TYAT: The Happiest Day Of My Life

Ten years ago tonight, the happiest day of my life.
It was a Sunday.
You came back and told me your decision.
You wanted us to be a couple.
I was so overwhelmed with emotion.
My hopes and prayers had been answered. A dream had come true.

We kissed for the first time, the sweetest kiss I had ever known.

The woman I had loved for so long was in my arms at last. My heart was pumping so hard I thought my chest would explode. After all those years...

I was the happiest man alive, I never knew a person could feel such joy, that I could feel so much happiness, it was like living my dreams.
I wanted so much to make you as happy as you made me, to make your dreams come true.

I thought I would get the chance to do so.

We made plans to get together Tuesday.
I knew everything was going to be different from this day forth.

I fell asleep that night feeling like God had smiled upon me.

TYAT: The Second Happiest Day Of My Life

Ten years ago tonight: The second happiest day of my life.
It was a Friday night.
Years after I told you how I felt and you left.
You came to see me and talk with me unbidden. After not seeing you or talking with you for years and what seemed an eternity, you came back.
You said that you'd been thinking and that you thought you wanted to be with me.
Were my dreams coming true ? Was this just another dream ?
I asked you if you were sure. Had you thought through the consequences.
You weren't, you hadn't.
I told you the time while you were gone was an agony. I wanted us to share life together more than I wanted life. I couldn't stand to have us be a couple only to lose you again. The pain would be unbearable.
I asked you to go home and think about it, search your heart, search your soul, search your mind and come back in two days and tell me your decision.
We hugged and I watched you leave that night hoping for Sunday and your decision.

I was happy you had come. Happier than I ever thought was possible. I dared to hope that dreams can come true.

Ten years. It's hard to believe it's been so long ago.
