Or so this person would have you believe:

HOW WE KNOW WHAT'S REALLY TRUE II by wwwEAMONREILLYdotCOM

After wading through this inane bit of art, and the column of propaganda below it, it made me curious.

The person ascribes god (note: religious mentality) getting people through famine. Is there a study proving the positive correlation between prayer and crop yield?

If religious mentality is responsible for ending wars or getting people through them, then what is the artist asserting? That without religion, wars would never end? Or perhaps that the Crusades were, in fact, started by the Cult of Epicurus?

According to the artist:
"Atheism is a religion. It is an anti-christ religion. Without Christ there would be no atheism."
Does this mean the atheists here would be religious if Christianity never existed? What religion would you follow there was no Christianity for you to hate and oppose?

Discuss.
(Revisited this page after forgetting about it for a while, thought I'd share it.)
I spoke with someone on here who was an avid feminist a while ago, and they were rather opposed to pornography, as many feminists are.

They described work as an actress in adult entertainment as a demeaning job, one where a person is being thoroughly exploited by their very profession, even if they enjoy their job/consent to their job expectations/are well paid for their job.

I drew to comparisons to the most demeaning job I ever had, which was working as a janitor during my first year of college. Specifically, I worked part time cleaning low-rent houses/apartments after people moved out of them... and since the people who lived in them were often poor, this usually meant they either skipped town in lieu of paying their rent or were evicted. Needless to say, there was always a lot to clean up and it was seldom what you'd call a "paper mess". I'll spare you the details, but let it be said that many powerful cleaning products were needed (like engine degreaser), and you'd be a fool not to take a shower or eat with your hands after working.

I'm curious: who is the more exploited person? A woman who has sex on camera for money and enjoys (or at least is reasonably content with) her job, or a person who has to spend a full day (sometimes two) cleaning a house who merely tolerates it?

For the record, I'm not complaining; I did my work, got paid, and got a better job as soon as I could have. That was years ago, and I don't regret any of it.
