Quite a list... Now for my inevitable commentary... :-)

The "Bush lied, people died" one has some good satire but also some inconsistencies. The only report ever made about WMDs actually being found was given by a couple Republicans and reported in Rupert Murdochs Fox News, and nothing was ever given to back that story up. No pictures of the weapons, no detailed accounting, just a general statement by two Good Ol' Boys and Ruperts infamously slanted reporting. There is no authentic and detailed report on the Internet of found WMDs. I looked. Murdoch and the BBC are the two primary reasons we bloggers deride the MSM, and between them, they own most of the media in the Western world with Murdoch being the biggest monopolist by far.

In the previous post there's a link to "Islams growing ranks in the global sphere" which quoted figures that didn't sound right, so I did a little math. In this article Islam is claimed to be the worlds fastest growing religion, a claim refuted by many. It cites figures from the The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP), which claims a growth rate for the 1.3 billion muslims of 1.84% and a growth rate for the 2.2 billion Christians of 1.38%. Okay. Now look at it. If you have a growth rate of 10% for 10 people, that will add one more person for the year. If the same growth rate applies to 100 people, you have 10 more for the year. do the math on the above figures and you find that while Islam is increasing by 20 million a year, Christianity is increasing by 30 million!!! So which religion is REALLY the fastest growing? There's nearly a billion more Christians now than muslims and that number is increasing by thirty million a year. Christianity is clearly the fastest growing religion in the world.

Beware of "facts" created by manipulating population figures. The growth rates for Islam result almost entirely from birth rates, which are slowly declining. The growth rate for Christianity is almost entirely the result of conversions. Quite a difference.

Great Sunday reading list!
