~ SAYS A BLOGGER… “‘Course I contend Binks isn’t one elf but like a platoon of em.” Muwhahaha. Countless elf-cadres beavering away in our massive top-secret black ops facility. Top Secret? Hah! Those weenies at Area 51 only wish they had the quiet cool (and heated pool) of Area 52; The ElfZone. Don’t MAKE us go all Black Helicopter on your sorry selves! ~

~ THE BINKS weighs in ‘On Aliens and the Vatican‘. Just to let you know, Here at Binks HQ, the matter is also settled. If God exists, and loves life as He appears to do, then under all possible life-sustaining circumastances (and those are far wider than we imagine), life will exist. Somewhere, that probably includes intelligent life, since it has already arisen at least once (on Earth). Whether any of that is close to us, or communicative, or is a race of ill-tempered orcs with big lasers looking for a free supply of man-flesh, is another matter. Only Star Trek Federation types assume it’s all unicorns and alien bunnies. That there is other intelligent life in existence is also a theological question: if God exists, then it is within his power to create non-embodied intelligences (otherwise known as angels, fallen or otherwise). So there: a few mysteries of the universe wrapped up for ya. You’re welcome. Cute & mostly harmless WebElves are NOT, in fact, aliens. ~

~ EN FRANCAIS— Liberté d’expression. Caricatures de Mahomet : La saga Ezra Levant (la suite, mais c’est loin d’être la fin) “L’imam Soharwardy et le Edmonton Council of Muslims ont réussi à mettre une agence gouvernementale au service de la poursuite de leur fatwa radicale contre moi. Leurs plaintes ont été rejetées après 900 jours d’enquête par 15 bureaucrates, au coût de un demi million $ pour les contribuables. Mes frais légaux s’élèvent à 100 000$. Il est cependant inexact de dire qu’ils ont perdu. Le processus auquel j’ai été soumis est un châtiment en soi et un avertissement à tout journaliste qui oserait défier l’islam radical. De plus, la commission des droits est maintenant le rédacteur en chef de la province.” …. (pointdebasculecanada.ca)
