Shooting Wasps in the Water Tank

When I was a kid, visiting my grandfather’s farm, we used to go stand at the backdoor of the bunkhouse and plink the wasps that hovered above the water tanks in the corral behind the bunkhouse. It wasn’t very challenging but it passed the time and carried the thrill that, if Grandpa found out that we were filling his water tank with BBs thus rusting the bottom of the tank, we would be skinned alive and made into wallets or a tobacco pouch.

Refuting that arrogant moron Bill Maher is not unlike shooting wasps in the water tank. You can watch Paul Manata do it at Triablogue. At least the ancient critics of the faith bothered to actually read the Bible before assaulting it. This new crop of neo-atheists is really disappointing.
