Actually, You Cause Me To Fret Overmuch About How To Somehow Get Through Your Thick Skulls And Sophistic Defense Mechanisms In Order To Keep You Out Of Hell

But shattering my perceptions? Not so much.

P.Z. Myers:
Scientists and atheists do something that many believers find repellent: we shatter their perception of their relationship to the universe. And understandably, they don't like that.

While I understand the urge to label these fools "autistic" (as "Vox Day" does), it is a mistake.

Autistic persons cannot help their condition.

These fools *choose* to be willfully ignorant; they *choose* to reason illogically and irrationally, that is, they choose anti-reason and call it reason; they are intellectually dishonest ... they are worse than "mere liars" (thus, I call them 'fools').

Hmm. Who are the fools? People who choose to base their reasoning on concrete evidence, or those who cling to dogma and believe in an invisible sky fairy?

*votes for those who troll old blog postings to spread their dogma*

And double points for not being able to accurately characterize their opponent's beliefs.




(Funny: the word verification was "forpest." Even computers have humor.)

People who write things like that expose themselves as fools.
