  1. Wow. So you can’t back up your views about the world, you attempt to support those views with tenuous assertions, and wild assumptions, by your own words you can’t prove it. But you think you’ve got some position to describe atheism as a “crock of shit” and evolution “laughable” and “unplausable” despite it being completely proven and provable, unlike your own halfwitted ideas.
    You’re the one who’s laughable and pathetic, you fucking deluded, stupid, rude, ignorant moron of a man.
    Go fuck yourself you utter fool.

  2. Hi J. I was just curious, roughly how many of Frank’s shows have you listened to?

  3. J, its Frank’s show. On it he gives us his opinions on life, etc. If you don’t like it then either respond properly like an adult or don’t listen, simple as.

  4. I wholeheartedly agree about the names of the months thing. Back in 1994, it was the inspiration for me to create a “metric calendar,” in which the year was divided into 10 months, each with either 36 or 37 days, alternating between odd and even months. The months were named Unember, Duboer, Triember, Quadrober, Quintember, Sextober, and then of course September, October, November and December, so that they’d all correlate to the right number of the month.

    This led to furthering my concept of “metric time,” in which there were 10 days in a week – six work days (so we get more work done each week), followed by a 4-day weekend (more rest & relaxation!). I forget what I named the other three days, but one of them was Hyunday. ;^) Each day could then be divided into 10 “metric hours” (or hectominutes) with 100 “metric minutes” in each hour, and each “metric minute” would contain 100 “metric seconds.” (centiminutes) I even figured out that you could build a metric clock in which 80 of our standard seconds would equal 1 “metric minute,” and you can build a time keeping device that breaks that into 100 centiminutes.

    Someone pointed out that metric time would not be accepted by many for religious reasons (biblical six-day creation theory, etc.). I then figured this would work in the context of some futuristic story which takes place thousands of years after a great war that brings about the demise of all religions, which ends with the return/arrival of a messiah who explains that G-d did not actually create the world in six days, but in ten. In the story, another great war brews between the Neochristians and another religious group…

    And actually, metric time has been considered in the past:

    But the reason why we have the names of the month are due to the original Roman calendar which existed before the Julian calendar:
