Duck Dynasty star Si Robertson: Atheists don’t exist because they use calendars

Published

on

Duck Dynasty star Si Robertson doubts the existence of atheists. The TV reality show star recently said that he doesn’t believe it is possible for a person to not believe in God but still use a calendar.

“There’s a lot of skeptics,” Robertson told the Christian Post. “I don’t believe there’s such a thing as an atheist. Because there’s too much documentation. Our calendars are based on Jesus Christ.”

The Duck Dynasty star alleged that atheists contradicted their supposed disbelief in God every time they used the Anno Domini dating system, which sets the birth of Jesus Christ as the first year.

“Whether you believe in him or not, every time you write down the day’s date you’re saying he’s here,” he remarked.

Hemant Mehta of The Friendly Atheist blog was less than convinced of the alleged non-existence of his belief system.

He noted that the Gregorian calendar used in the Western world was based on the ancient Roman calendar. Many months are named after Roman gods — January for Janus, March for Mars, May for Maia, and June for Juno. Julius Caesar and his heir Augustus also each have a month named after them, July and August.

“In short, Robertson’s ‘proof’ for why atheists don’t exist boils down to: He doesn’t know any and he’s never picked up a history book,” Mehta wrote. “I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. Ignorance mixed with bullshit is his family’s currency these days.”

Rob Braun, a fixture on local Cincinnati television for over 35 years, is retiring after stating it was "time to move on" because "I don't fit well with the Sinclair News model," reports WVXU.

The reports states that Braun -- the dean of Cincinnati's WKRC news broadcasting -- made the comments on his Facebook page and assured loyal fans that he was not fired by the conservative news organization.

In a Facebook post, he wrote: "I want you to know that I am not retiring. Ch 12 is NOT forcing me out. In fact, they offered me a generous contract. I am choosing to leave. There is no 'real story but .... Sometimes in life, you just know, it's time to move on. I don't feel I fit well with the Sinclair News model."

Alex Jones attacks Sandy Hook families’ lawyer as a ‘little white Jewboy’ in latest unhinged outburst

Published

on

Alex Jones is dealing with ongoing legal battles with families of victims and survivors of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Jones is being accused of sending child pornography to the families and leading an ongoing attack on the families using his InfoWars network. However, his legal defense seems to hinge on attacking the plaintiffs' attorney, AboveTheLaw reported Thursday.

It was the child pornography that prompted Jones to lose his mind over attorney Chris Mattei. During the discovery phase of the trial, Mattei found the images and contacted the FBI, which he is required to do by law. But it sent Jones into an outright ragegasm in a video that was shown in court.

Trump ridiculed for babbling Oval Office talk about ‘manned drones’: We call those ‘planes’

Published

on

During a press availability in the Oval Office with Canadian Prime Minister, Donald Trump was naturally asked about Iran reportedly shooting down a U.S. drone in international airspace, which led to the president rambling in the way he does about what a drone is and does.

His explanation was not what one might call knowledgeable or smooth.

“I think probably Iran made a mistake,” the president replied when asked about the international incident. “I would imagine it was a general or somebody that made a mistake in shooting that drone down. Fortunately, that drone was unarmed. There was no man in it and there was no — it was just — it was over international waters, clearly over international waters, but we didn’t have a man or woman in the drone. We had nobody in the drone. It would have made a big difference, let me tell you. It would have made a big, big difference."
