The brew the Joe's bar has on tap with a golden base and a snowy cap
The mellow stuff I drink all day until my memory melts away
Poems are written by fools I fear but only Heineken can make a beer

There once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all of his cash in a bucket.
But his daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man
And as for the bucket, Nan took it.
Excellent Natures perfect food .... Beer

Straw man.

Evolution undermines a lot of creation myths (well they couldn't all be right, anyway!).
But why would Evolution 100% prove Atheism?

If the aztec religion were true, would you cut someone's heart out to keep the sun shining?
If satanism were true, would you become a satanist?
In the absence of any proof of truth, all of these questions are equally absurd.
I can't remember who came up with the original quote but, "Not all religions can be right, but they can all be wrong."

Your lovely shrubs, your lush green lawn were such a sight to gaze upon
That they inspired my lovely spouse to beautify our grounds and house

So now I spend my time, seeding, weeding, spreading lime
Raking, aching, black and blue and friend it's all because of you

So now I pause mid puff and pant to send to you this little plant
I hope you won't think rash of me - it's poison ivy tee her hee

What do you think - am I ready for the big time?
Lol

I like it--great technique, echoing both vowel and consonant sounds and lovely little mid-line rhymes, the meter matches the mood. Even the pun in the last line is forgivable. Well done!

If we can't take your bible literally - are we just expected to make sh*t up and hope everyone thinks the same? <--- the stupidity of faith.

Idiots who try to defend faith have to come up with this stupid stuff all the time to apologise for their cult being wrong.

I don't know and neither do you. However my thinking brings about more logical and conclusive answers towards finding out the truth than the belief in a book of fiction.

Is that even a proper question?

This is really worth a watch. It discusses theories concerning what happened before the Big Bang.
Laura Mersini Houghton's piece is especially good.

Uncle abe modernized

Four score and like seven years ago our old dudes came on the scene with a new group grooved in free kicks and hip to the jazz that all dude can make the scene.

Now we are real hung up in a crazy hassle digging whether that group or any group so groovy, so hip can keep on swinging.

We're making it on a wild spot of that great hassle

We have eyes to tag a portion for that spot... as a long last lay down pad for those who were here, clocked out, so that the group might still score.

Meter?

My apologies to Ogden Nash...

I've often thought my poems would be neater if, they had some trace of rhythm, what I mean to say is meter.

But when you're writing for topix and their ilk, which are read by pseudo-sophisticates, they you want to do it cutely.

So if you send them good old fashioned poetry they reject it absolutely.

Creationism has failed to understand or accept the fact of Evolution.

It takes a special kind of retarded religious arrogance to try to argue against fossils you can see and touch in real life.

More than can be said about their lies about god.
