Leap of Faith

April 20th, 2010 by Mike N · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

By way of the Detroit Free Press, today’s leap of faith is this gem of logic from Iran: promiscuous women are the cause of earthquakes. Proof that religion places reason in the seat of justifying faith in dogma. A look at reality however does hint at a solution to the quakes:

“Some experts have even suggested Iran should move its capital to a less seismically active location. Tehran straddles scores of fault lines, including one more than 50 miles long, though it has not suffered a major quake since 1830.”


“Minister of Welfare and Social Security Sadeq Mahsooli said prayers and pleas for forgiveness were the best “formulas to repel earthquakes.””
