Why You Should Always READ Papers You Cite…

Also, why anti-gay activists need to do a little more reading.

Al Franken is awesome.

 

Sometimes my Mom IS right!

“Don’t get a tattoo. You’ll regret it!” my mom used to say.

I had always considered getting a tattoo, but never went through with it because I could never think of something that would alway seem cool or be relevant to me. (Maybe Maxwell’s equations, that would be pretty nerdy-cool right?)

I was reminded of this from something that PZ Myers posted this on his blog today, and I just had to share it.

PZ points out the problem with the tattoo this wrestler got.

The tattoo reads: "And thou shalt not lie with a man as with a woman, for it is an abomination. Lev 18:22"

People often use this verse from Leviticus to defend their hatred of homosexuals. However, PZ Myers suggests a tattoo for his left arm:

Lev 19:28 And ye shall not make cuttings in your body for a dead body, and ye shall not inscribe on yourselves any marks. I am the Lord your God.

I have another suggestion for a tattoo, possibly he could put it on his forehead:

hy·poc·ri·sy [hi-pok-ruh-see]

–noun, plural -sies.

1. a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.
