Drop the salads

The news is out: [A variety of packaged food sold at Target and The Fresh Market are being recalled over possible listeria contamination.
Elevation Foods is recalling egg salads, tuna salads, Thai lobster salads and deviled egg sandwiches sold under the Archer Farms and Freskët brands, according to a Friday recall notice from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
According to the notice, listeria was found in three containers of egg salad after the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Safety tested them, but so far no illnesses have been reported.
The recalled products were manufactured at its Knoxville, Tenn. facility and the company said it believes fewer than 1,087 cases of the products have been shipped to retailers.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), listeria is an organism that can cause serious infection when consumed and can even be fatal in some cases.]

Biblical stupidity 1476

There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Among them:

The study of inconsistencies in the Bible has a long history. In the 17th century, Spinoza considered the Bible to be “a book rich in contradictions.” In the 18th century, Thomas Paine in “The Age of Reason” compiled many of the Bible’s self-contradictions. And in 1860, William Henry Burr produced a list of 144 self-contradictions in the Bible. This is an updated list of over 712 inconsistencies in the Bible.

Leviticus 5:2 Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcase of an unclean beast, or a carcase of unclean cattle, or the carcase of unclean creeping things, and if it be hidden from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty.3 Or if he touch the uncleanness of man, whatsoever uncleanness it be that a man shall be defiled withal, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty.

If you touch any unclean thing (like a dead cow or a bug) or the “uncleanness of man” (?), then you’ll be both unclean and guilty. What if a man is unclean and touches himself?

Leviticus 4:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall sin through ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against any of them: 13 And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty; 22 When a ruler hath sinned, and done somewhat through ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD his God concerning things which should not be done, and is guilty; 27 And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance, while he doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty;

How can someone “sin through ignorance?” Don’t you have to at least know that an act is wrong before it can be sinful?

Leviticus 3:16 And the priest shall burn them upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire for a sweet savour: all the fat is the LORD’S.17 It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood.

When you are making an animal sacrifice, remember that “all the fat is the Lord’s.” God loves blood and guts, but most especially fat and foreskins. And he doesn’t like to share!

Leviticus 1-9: The entire first nine chapters of Leviticus is about killing an animal, sprinkle the blood around, cut the dead animal into pieces, and burn it for a “sweet savor unto the Lord.” These are blood rituals very important to God, judging from the number of times that he repeats their instructions. Killing is at the core of the bible.

God’s name is Jealous. A more appropriate name is “demented baby killer”.

The UK decries racism

The news is out: [Dozens of UK politicians including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Mayor Sadiq Khan have backed a message of solidarity to Ilhan Omar and three other congresswomen targeted by Donald Trump.
In a letter sent to Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, the group have condemned Mr Trump’s tweets in which he suggested the women should “go back” to their home countries – despite all four being American citizens.
“We are disgusted by Donald Trump’s attack on you. His blatant, unashamed racism has appalled people around the world,” the signatories to the letter wrote.
“You embody the best of America. Its diversity is its strength. Thank you for showing the world that America can still provide leadership to be proud of, even when the White House has abdicated that role.
“We stand in solidarity with you.”
