Hurriyet: Masturbating men ‘will find their hands pregnant in the afterlife,’ says Muslim televangelist

Quote:
After claiming that a man would meet his masturbating hand “pregnant in the afterlife” and “asking for its rights,” a Muslim televangelist has set Turkish social media aflame.[...]

I, for one, are exceptionally happy that theological arguments have developed so finely. No longer are we concerned with simplistic matters such as how many angels can fit on a pinhead. Now the pressing question is how many weird afterlife babies can fit in one hand. Progress indeed.

Edit- I missed the "asking for rights" bit, so now they are weird talking afterlife babies.

Weird, talking, "social justice warrior" afterlife babies.

edit: in fairness, according to amendment 8 of the Irish constitution, as unborn children, they actually have equal rights to real living people. So maybe they're Irish as well??? The plot thickens...

But would the 'issue' be babies or more hands (and talking ones at that?)?

Webby, I would strongly advise you to avoid the urge to be a twat.

Edit: Well, how's that for irony? About one second after embarking on a career of non-twatishness I make a twat of myself with a double post. What a fucking twat!

Well after seeing the hand-pregnancy post I realized I can also try my chences in this thread:

As the elections in Turkey is approaching AKP, the government party, constructed closed bus stops to a village close to Kayseri as an election investment. The thing is that the village has no automobile road or has no bus service at all.

Wait, I'm confused. Why are you replying to yourself? Or do I not get what your trying to say?

Very enjoyable back and forth between Noam Chomsky and warmongering New Atheist douchebag Sam Harris. Despite the many shortcomings of his politics, Chomsky roundly smashes Harris' arguments at every turn and doesn't bother to put on any act of having the least bit of respect for Harris, who keeps feebly trying to turn it into some great intellectual debate between great public intellectuals who greatly respect each other's intellect. Good stuff.

Good to see Chomsky still kicking it in his old age

That was a good exchange.
Reminded me of the ancaps etc who show up here.

I couldn;t make it through the first page without hysterics. I must have this book! Of course I want to get in touch with my inner Bonobo. Who wouldn't? (apart from the author of the review). Kudos

A Muslim campaigner claimed 'Zionists sneaked into his home while he was asleep to steal his shoe'.

Asghar Bukhari, a founding member of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK, made the extraordinary claim in a Facebook post but soon faced ridicule.
