I love lip syncing - and this pair do it alarmingly well...

Now, there are some strange things encountered by me on the web. One often finds extremism, fundamentalism, homophobism and lots of other isms, that in a perfect world would be consigned to the rubbish bin. However this piece of nonsense below, that I came across recently, takes some beating.
Where to start with my comments?
Well one - the writer seems to assume that there have been 6 billion people living on Earth since the first appearance of Man, which is a ludicrous statement to start with...
but the even more incredible observation seems to be that the writer has somehow conveniently forgotten that everyone, at least a couple of times a day, goes for a piss! So when we consume these two litres a water per day, they don't stay in our body, but flow back through the sewers, through the water treatment plants and back into the water cycle.
Someone save us from christian lunatics!

Despite causing worldwide hilarity on 21 May, California pastor Harold Camping clearly doesn't know when he is beaten. Demonstrating the persistence we have come to expect from a man who has predicted the end of the world on three separate occasions in the past three decades, Camping, whose latest doomsday came and went without incident on Saturday, has told followers that the world will definitely end on Friday 21 October. It's a date that already featured in his apocalyptic schedule – 21 May was the date for the Rapture, when good Christians would ascend to heaven, leaving the rest of us behind to face rule by the Antichrist, with the world ending properly on 21 October. Now, following a hasty reappraisal, Camping claims that Saturday was merely a spiritual Rapture (i.e., one where absolutely nothing changed) and says we will have to wait until October for the real fireworks:
"On May 21, this last weekend, this is where the spiritual aspect of it really comes through. God again brought judgment on the world. We didn’t see any difference but God brought Judgment Day to bear upon the whole world. The whole world is under Judgment Day and it will continue right up until Oct. 21, 2011 and by that time the whole world will be destroyed."
