This is in response to the various skid marks Glob left on this post Fundy Watch 2. For full context, feel free to stop by and help splash the shit from our pool. :)
Attention Glob: Village Idiot
Let me start by saying that when I meet people on my blog, I accept them as they present themselves. Why? Because I'm not trying to pick up young girls in a chat room, so I don't have to worry about any of you being FBI agents trying to get the goods on me.
You Glob could very well be a homosexual teenage Muslim male living in seclusion in India. But you present yourself as an adult male: probably under 45, married with a daughter AND a fundamentalist Christian. So don't give me any shit about not knowing who you are or how you approach life.
How about your assessment of me? Dawkins is my high priest? Fuck you Glob. Not even close. Which I've actually addressed to you before on my blog. But you couldn't be fucked reading it could you Glob? No. Why? Because it doesn't fit in with your fundy world view to see atheists as anything other than selfish, amoral, Darwin/Dawkins worshipping drones. It is you who know and have learned nothing about me.
Your words here speak for you, if you think your words here on my blog present you in a light other than how you've been treated or are perceived, do feel free to reference them and correct my (our) impression of you.
[Insert Glob's reply to my request not being worth his time and effort.]
The thing that pisses me off about talking to a fundy (yes you Reg Golb but also Janice and Dani) is that there is NEVER any coming to a consensus or general agreement about a subject. Why? Because when it comes down to the basics YOU ARE NOT RATIONAL! Any of you.
Let me say that again Glob. You are not a rational human being. You have chosen to make FAITH (Hebrews 11:1 Now FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.) in God the most important aspect of your life. That when it comes down to a choice between thinking with your brain and accepting the bible on FAITH you will go with FAITH every time.
This FAITH determines what you believe about the most basic elements of the universe.
Let's start with this. A is A.
WTF does that have to do with anything?
It is one of the most fundamental concepts in the universe. That existence exists. That there is something out there, that we can perceive, and we are individually capable of perceiving that which exists.
It means, Glob, that the desk you are sitting at as you read my blog is only a desk. It will never be anything else. It is a desk. You can use it for alternative purposes. You can bend your wife over it and fuck her silly but it will still be a desk. You can clear it off and chop up lettuce, veggies and chicken and make a Caesar salad, but it is still a desk. Recommend you wipe it off after the sex or that white creamy stuff that smells like tartar sauce is going to leave a fishy taste on your chicken.
But you don't accept that, do you Glob? You don't believe that the desk is ONLY and shall always only be a desk. You believe that it COULD be something else. That if your Lord God would stretch forth His hand he could make your desk into an elephant, or a Muslim Virgin one of 47, or a Mini Cooper loaded with $38 million in gold bullion.
You whinge about atheists not being able to answer the origins of life. Yet I remember distinctly Richard spending a large chunk of his valuable time addressing this very issue on this very blog with you! RIGHT HERE!! You inconsiderate fucking prick. You read and understood NONE of what he wrote. You did do a google search for a term and copy/pasted a response. But you didn't understand the science of it to say, "Richard- this part is wrong and here is why". OR "Richard- how can you say X when my understanding is Y".
But no. In typical Fundy fashion you LOOKED at what Richard said, understood NONE of it, Googled a few key terms until you found a fundy response to PART of what he said, put that up like you had contributed to the discussion and said "that's interesting". Richard took the time to not only read but also respond to the tripe you copied from somewhere else and what did you do Glob? You fucked off from that discussion and never came back. Why? Because you, Glob, don't know enough about science to respond to Richard. You Glob, being the fundy that you are stuck your fingers in your ears and went racing back to Bible School to get the atheist stain off your brain before it soaked in and damaged your FAITH.
Or how about This one? Where you Glob, asked me if I would die for my child. I asked you a few questions to define exactly what you meant and what did you do? You fucked off for nearly 2 weeks before being redirected back there and only addressed two other people's points to you but were "too tired" to pick up or remember the discussion with me. Why? Because when it comes down to it, you will not respond with reason or rational discussions but with your FAITH. And what do you do every single time that it is challenged and you have no response. You fuck off to whatever bible thumping activity you participate in until the waters you've stirred up here have calmed down and people have forgotten about the skid mark that you have left.
FAITH and reason do not mix and they never will. Reason looks to understand the world AS IT IS. FAITH looks to take the world and force it to fit the biblical world view. Science adapts and changes as new information is learned. Faith twists and contorts, denounces and denies new information to fit the old way of thinking.
