I hit a new high today (or, perhaps with the graphics, a new low). No, I haven’t discovered a better personal pharmaceutical, at least not the artificial kind. This one is natural. Today, this blog received over 1000 views. One thousand nine to be exact. That beat my old record from last spring of 822 in one 24 hour period. So I’m on a real high today. To think, over 1000 people like me, they really like me!
At least for today.
OK. Who am I fooling. In looking at my blog stats, I see that the last post on Hitler and Stalin, with its ruminations on the obvious ties to Christianity’s darkest 6 centuries, and especially the Inquisition, seems to have helped me exceed my personal best. Of those 1009 views, 583 alone were of my last post. That’s at least twice my average on any given day. It just shows to go you that atheism, while interesting, is nowhere near as interesting as megalomaniacal dictators who kill millions of people, regardless of their religious beliefs. Hitler and Stalin seem to really capture the public attention, even 60 years after their historical zenith. My previous post on the subject, Atheism and Stalin is the 7th most viewed post I’ve written, and the latest is actually in 14th place (out of 218) after only a week on the charts (so to speak). Of course, neither of them come close to matching the over 10,000 views of the #1 post, Sax and Violins.
Which only proves, once again, that sex sells better than Hitler.
