A brand new fundy, Jason, showed up on Tuesday to post on a December 2007 post global warming: cyclical or critical that was guest blogged by Richard.
Jason has a go at Richard and makes some wildly inaccurate assumptions about Richard's personal character and motivations. Anyone that has read Richard's comments here with any regularity will see the laughable falsity in them.
I find it interesting that Jason is yet another fundy who has created a profile just to post on my blog. When I first saw his name come up I was the first one to view his profile, which boringly enough has no personal details and probably never will. I wonder why he is hiding behind a throw-away persona. I wonder, but I don't care.
Some particularly revealing quotations from "Jason" include
I think Richard has become symbolic of all those who refuse to listen to reason. Nonsense is their anthem and ignorance their excuse.
BWAAHAHAHAHAHA. *wipes tears from eyes* Oh Jason you ignorant fundy, while Richard may have qualities that could earn him the spot of "poster boy" it certainly won't be for refusing to listen to reason.
Another little gem that shows Jason's profound ignorance...
It seems to me that the patrons of this site would oppose a society void of free will and innovation (especially Richard, who is ever so paranoid by the thought of a "socialist" conspiracy among environmentalists). But if this is true, then why is the creator of this page so opposed to the idea of a God who reigns without tyrrany? Sounds like a contradiction to me.
BWAHAHAAHAHA OH... OH.... Stop!!! I can't breathe!!! HAHAHAAHHAAHAHA
Jason- you fuckwitted tool. "Free will" is such a fundy way of speaking it is nearly a non-word particularly in the christian context of god granted free will. And is it possible to insert any more reversals into your thoughts? Twisting and turning this way and that. Good grief! Trying to parse what you said is like trying to unravel a cat's yarn ball. Not much point since it will just get tangled again.
Let's see if I can figure out what Jason is attempting to say... We (me and my faithful readers) are opposed to a tyranical and stagnant society (i.e. one void of free will and innovation). Ok. Yes. Essentially true.
Now the real gem, why am I (the creator of this blog) opposed to a god who reigns without tyranny?
BWAHAHAHAAHAAHAH!!! WITHOUT TYRANNY? GOD??? I have to assume Jason means the christian god of the bible. Jason. Have you ever read the bible? Without tyranny?????
*reaches for dictionary* And hey! Lucky you Jason, you're getting all 4 definitions of tyranny. Let's talk about god.
1) a government in which a single ruler is vested with absolute power
I recall the bible saying something like "I am the Lord your God, you shall have no other god before me". Do you really need the scriptural link for that notion? Sounds pretty absolute to me, not a lot of grey area there. In fact, wasn't Lucifer's big unforgivable sin that he claimed to be equal with god????
2) Absolute power especially when exercisesd unjustly or cruelly.
God kills 70,000 innocent people because David ordered a census of the people (1 Chronicles 21). God also orders the destruction of 60 cities so that the Israelites can live there. He orders the killing of all the men, women, and children of each city, and the looting of all of value (Deuteronomy 3). He orders another attack and the killing of “all the living creatures of the city: men and women, young, and old, as well as oxen sheep, and asses” (Joshua 6). I, Fiery, creator of this blog, denounce god as cruel and unjust for crimes comitted and attested to in his own divinely inspired book.
3) a tyrannical act
In Judges 21, He orders the murder of all the people of Jabesh-gilead, except for the virgin girls who were taken to be forcibly raped and married. When they wanted more virgins, God told them to hide alongside the road and when they saw a girl they liked, kidnap her and forcibly rape her and make her your wife! In 2 Kings 10:18-27, God orders the murder of all the worshipers of a different god in their very own church!
4) extreme harshness or severity; rigor.
In total God kills 371,186 people directly and orders another 1,862,265 people murdered. Satan's biblical tally of murders he is directly responsible for? 10. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10. Ten. Seems fairly harsh and severe to me.
The above info. was taken directly from Evil Bible.com, an invaluable resource.
You want it summed up neatly Jason? I oppose the Christian God because He holds you by the throat over the fiery abyss of hell and says, "Choose oh lowly worm, choose the loving embrace of jesus the christ or you will burn for all eternity. Now get on your knees and thank me for the free will that I have given you that you may choose life and have it in abundance."
Anyone else here think god isn't a tyrant?
