Happy Sunday, Unfollowers!
I’m going to keep today’s email pretty short and sweet for a couple of reasons:
- It hasn’t been the best week for me.
- NFL is back today, and I procrastinated a bit… Go Pats!
THANK YOU to my patrons: Ainslie, Marissa, Leah, and Robert!!

There is a dinosaur statue at a McDonald’s in Arizona, and Christians want it taken down…
So… I have a couple of questions:
- WHY is there a dinosaur statue outside of a McDonald’s?
- Is there really a group called “Christians Against Dinosaurs”???
Honestly, this kind of makes me want to visit this McDonald’s because I love dinosaurs. I’m 12. Here’s a quote from the article:
“According to its Facebook page and website, Christians Against Dinosaurs seeks to reveal the truth about the “dinosaur lie,” claiming that the creatures never existed. It says dinosaurs are a scam invented by scientists to thwart religion. Over 23,000 people have liked the page on Facebook.”

Muslims HATE to be Called Out
I made a post on TikTok about the Charlie Hebdo shooting, and how that shows the dangers of religious extremism. Muslims were allll in my comments, saying that Religion isn’t why that shooting happened. Some of them were even justifying the killing of the journalists.
If you don’t know the story, a French magazine called Charlie Hebdo published some cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. This pissed off the Islamic community, and, in 2015, Islamic terrorists murdered 12 people at the office of Charlie Hebdo.
I ended up taking down my video because of the ridiculous comments, and I didn’t want to get suspended from TikTok.
There was a lot of “whataboutism” in my comments, such as “what about all of the atheists who have murdered millions? Stalin, Lenin, Mao, etc…” That, coupled with the justification for the terrorism, was enough for me to say “Fuck it. It’s not worth keeping the post up.”
