Eviscerating Noah’s Flood Myth

This is numero uno in a new series of podcast that I hope to do regularly, tentatively called, ‘Eviscerating morons with science’. I’m sure I’ll change it to be more inclusive. This week we kill the Noachian Flood myth.

God, The Bible and Religion: all figments of a drug-fuelled imagination

I have often pondered the possibility that the story of a senior citizen finding resources for and building an arc of unimaginable proportions, then filling it with two of each animal, or Noah’s Arc might seem more believable if I were extremely, impossibly high on drugs. Now, Professor Benny Shanon of Jerusalem University has written of his theory that the biblical Israelites were high while they wrote their stories.

The thunder, lightning and blaring of a trumpet which the Book of Exodus says emanated from Mount Sinai were probably just have been the imaginings of a people in an altered state of awareness, Professor Shanon hypothesised, writing in the British Journal Time and Mind.

Anyone who has travelled deep into the jungles of South America and conversed with a tribal Shaman and been persuaded to try the intense hallucenogen, ayahuasca, can attest to the profound and elegant closeness to the universe it provides. A plant with the same qualities as one used in the ayahuasca brew has been revered by Jews in the region as having magical and curative powers.

This plant, readers, is commonly found around the Middle East, but most notably, on Mount Siani. That’s right boys and girls, when Moses met God for the first time, he was high, so high in fact that it took him forty days to come down… from the mountain.

So, riddle me this; have you ever gotten toked or tripped your way to heaven and written some seriously profound poetry, the kind that might change the world, then the next morning, awake with the same feelings of elation and read the garbled mess of semi passable prose that was your ticket to martyrdom and had it shunned?

Doesn’t it sound more likely that this is what transpired on the Siani; Moses mistook a commonly found herb used for tea and garnish for the hallucinogen, got profoundly high, talked to god (who was actually a talking burning bush (which was actually a small rodent)), wrote down what god said and walked back down the mountain with a satisfied grin on his face.

Then, he would have presented his writings to his peers, who would have laughed at and ridiculed him. Then, Moses, in a giant hissy fit, smashed the tablets on the ground and walked away in a huff. Then, incomprehensibly pissed off with his mates, got high again and talked shit about them, how they were worshipping idols and coveting other peoples wives.

How could he have known that his drug-fuelled, jive talking rant would go triple platinum?

So, there you have it, the Bible, God and stone tablets, were all written while profoundly high. It’s all a sham, a drug fuelled, garbled, rambling sham… no wonder the Christians rewrote it, it didn’t make any frickin sense!

Good night, and [drug-fuelled imaginary] God bless.

Episode 54 – DO NOT PUT THIS IN YOUR MOUTH!

Dear Strange Bedfellows,

Who would’ve guessed that plucking my monobrow would enable me to be taken seriously as a broadway makeup artist?! Nonetheless, while plucking away indiscriminately, I found a copy of the 54th ImaginaryFriendsShow.com Podcast… how do you like them apples?

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road? A: To avoid hearing about the debt ceiling crisis. Yeah, I went there! Rudy Rudell and I discuss testing anal dilation for gay priests (seriously), Rick Perry,  Catholics tired of Catholicism and skeptical problems in skeptic town.

Episode 53 – Brought To You By Preparation H and God!


Dear Petulant Miscreants,

While narrowly escaping a building fire that I accidentally deliberately started, I discovered that the 53rd ImaginaryFriendsShow.com Podcast was alive! How about that shit!

This episode we talk drug testing for people on welfare, ‘real life’ exorcisms, the Vatican is back in the black, and the Christian proselytising rules handbook. Also, Pete Darwin and I talk all things Botulism.

Later this week we’ll have a full, episode length, interview with a representative from the Westboro Baptist (“God Hates Fags”) Church, so keep an eye out for it!

Episode 51 – Seriously, coral looks better bleached!


Dear Mildly Agitated Masticators,

No one knows better than I, the dangers of falling asleep in the sun… while nude… or at least NOW I know better than most the dangers of falling asleep in the sun nude. But third degree burned private parts aside, the 51st episode of the ImaginaryFriendsShow.com podcast is alive!

In this episode, we welcome Pete Darwin and a new segment, “The Miracles of Modern Day Science!” Pete and I talk solar flux, solar minimum and solar plexus… and coral bleaching. We also talk social injustice and the right to refuse police requests for religious reasons, and reincarnated secular Jewish lawyers being stoned to death by bad reporters.

Episode 49 – If only all anthropoids could be so cool!


Dear Self Indulgent Schadenfreude’s,

Have you ever run so hard/far that your nipples bled? No…? … me either…

Anyway, so while I was rubbing vaseline on my poor bleeding nipples today, I received a text message from my favorite bastard friend, Jesus, alerting me the 49th ImaginaryFriendsShow.com Podcast episode was alive and bleeding from the nipples!

Now for the horror… scopes:

Taurus: This week, your wife refuse to let you spend time alone with your children after a nasty nursery rhyme accident. For future reference, it goes, “one, two, buckle my shoe. Three, four, knock at the door”, not “three, four, a big, fat, smelly, Latino whore”. Double whammy, you also have undiagnosed tourettes.

Cancer: A haiku sure is
A classy way for your doc
To say you’ve got crabs

This week we talk moustaches, atoms and Catholic Contraceptive Advice. Also, there was too much news for a single episode, so you’ll see another episode pop up later this week.

Episode 47 – Stuck in a vestabule with you!

Dear Socially Dijected Platypi,

In this episode, we investigate Harold Camping from a completely different angle. I don’t want to give away to much, but he IS the reason that we weren’t raptured. He is the savior of all mankind… and some of women kind.

We also talk childrens books, condoms, dancing nuns, progressive bishops, refugee/boat people/”they’re taking our jobs”/queue jumpers and a whole load of other interesting stuff.

Episode 44 – Atheism is just another religion!


Dear Religious Atheists,

Jake is attending rehab in wine country (which is actually the ‘bible belt’ of Australia doing research for book #2, so we’ve pre-cooked this episode for your aural pleasure. WTF happens if the atheism/secularism movement succeeds and what is the atheist worldview?

Episode 43 – So hot it’ll impregnate your auditory nerve!

Dear Slightly Obtuse Vestigial Tails,

I’ve received 27 emails from listeners begging for more horroscopes, so here you go!

Taurus: There’s a fine line between practicing kung fu and running around in your pajamas yelling at everyone you meet.

Pisces: Life is too short to hold onto regrets. Well, for you, anyway… sheesh.

Nonetheless, the 43rd ImaginaryFriendsShow.com Podcast is free and presenting it’s salty wares for your perusal. Seriously, do with it whatever you feel is appropriate, but at least leave it some cash for a taxi afterwards.
