Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson was once seen as a boring candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. But recent stories about the GOP frontrunner would seem to suggest otherwise: Especially his theory that the Egyptian pyramids were built by the biblical Joseph for grain storage, rather than as tombs for the pharaohs. In response, the internet hive mind created a new meme: the Ben Carson Wikipedia. Here are some fun “facts” he inspired:

Christine Weick is Internet famous for her video showing a link to Monster Drinks and Satanism and the Antichrist.


In the video, the woman claims that "M" logo could appear to resemble three instances of the letter Vav, the Hebrew numeral for six, interpreting the logo to mean "666." Later, she references Monster's slogan on a product banner reading "Unleash the Beast," interpreting these two examples as Monster Energy intending to reference "the beast" in the Book of Revelations. "This is not a Christian company at all. So why would they have a cross on the can? here is the message: Anti-christ." The woman claims that a cross in the letter "O" of Monster resembles a crucifix, and says that when the can is held is upside-down when drinking, the symbol in inverted. She believes that this inverted crucifix is meant to symbolize Satanism. "Bottom's up. And the devil laughs," the woman said in the video. "This is how clever Satan is and how he gets into the Christian home and a Christian's life."

Pope Francis met today with President Obama. According to the president: ""I was grateful to have the opportunity to speak with him about the responsibilities that we all share to care for the least of these, the poor, the excluded," Obama said. "And I was extremely moved by his insights about the importance of us all having a moral perspective on world problems and not simply thinking in terms of our own narrow self-interests."


Obama presented Francis with a custom-made seed chest featuring a variety of fruit and vegetable seeds used in the White House's garden. "These I think are carrots," he said, holding a pouch. "Each one has a different seed in it. The box is made from timber from the first cathedral to open in the United States in Baltimore." The pope gave the president an encyclical. "I actually will probably read this in the Oval Office when I'm deeply frustrated. I'm sure it will give me strength and calm me down," the president said smiling.

Bill Maher takes on some religious Republicans and conservatives religious justification for gutting social justice programs; and the mean-spirited nature of some Christians.

Mr. Maher mocked the Christian message of “I believe in charity, just not for people who need it” and concluded that “there’s always a good moral Christian to tell everyone they meet to fuck off and die.” Bill Maher ended his show Friday night with a blistering takedown of religious people who would love to do things like take care of the starving and needy if it weren’t always for some personal conflict getting in the way. Maher said these Christians should “just admit you’re selfish” and come to terms with the fact that their actions do not “mirror the spirit of Jesus.” Maher ran the gamut from Republicans pushing for more food stamp cuts to a Christian family that left a homophobic note instead of a tip for their gay waiter. Maher said they repeatedly emphasized the line “not share” to show “they’ve really absorbed the message of Jesus.” Source.
