From Earthquake to Boobquake

An Islamic cleric had this to say about Earthquakes happening in Haiti, Chile and the US.





Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi earlier this month warned worshipers:"Women who do not dress modestly . . . lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which increases earthquakes."





And so one blogger, Jen McCreight, decided to test his claim. She is urging women on Monday to gather in their "most immodest outfit" and see what happens.




So for all the D.C. women who are interested in participating in this event, there is a gathering being organized for noon at Dupont Circle. According to one Facebook page, more than 30,000 are liking this.








This theory will be tested and if there are no seismic events on the 26th the cleric would need to prove why he is right or wrong. 




Jen McCreight says this on her Facebook page





Help fight supernatural thinking and the oppression of women, just by showing your cleavage!

"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media. Sedighi is Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader.

I have a modest proposal.

Sedighi claims that not dressing modestly causes earthquakes. If so, we should be able to test this claim scientifically. You all remember the homeopathy overdose?

Time for a Boobqauke.

On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that's your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I'm sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn't rumble. And if we really get through to him, maybe it'll be one involving plate tectonics.

So, who's with me? I may be a D cup, but that will probably only produce a slight tremor on its own. If you'll be joining me on twitter, use the tag #boobquake!






Meanwhile male social networking users hope this turns out to be an annual recurring event.
