Fundies Say the Darndest Things!

Seems like more fun than a mud-wrestler at a hog-calling contest!

...And I just posted the same exact thing without realizing someone else had already done it.

Since the last time I've seen it, they've added a section for conspiracy theorists, and are soon to be adding a section for racists.  Not that I see much of a difference between those three groups in the first place, mind you.

Yeah, it's not all fun and games though, which I found out upon reading the first example on the top 100 page, "Saddest Post of the year".

I thought you guys might get a kick out of this.  I've been reading the January posts.  You'll never guess who's getting mucho air time with a plethora of asinine comments...

Our old friend Carico, going to show science is full of crap because Richard Dawkins can't prove we came from sea slugs or some such nonsense.  Some of these posts read almost word for word from his/her/its old EA troll-posts.  Good stuff!

It's like watching a George Romero horror flick.  They're slow, retain little brain function, communicate through incoherent moans, and move in large hordes.  It's too bad you can't get away with bashing creationists' heads in with a shovel.

Actually that's probably not fair, because the zombies were at least able to learn at a slow rate.

Well, I will say this...I know most of us can live without the fire breathing "militant atheists" ((That phrase is mis-used by the way.  I could call myself that - I am intolerant of religion.  I oppose religion at every turn.  I'm very willing to fight for my beliefs and will defend myself and my fellows vigorously)).  However, after reading through some of these FSTDT posts, I'm starting to take less of a 'ha-ha, look at the goofy fundie' tack and beginning to appreciate how deeply disturbed some of these people are.  I'm beginning to accept the fact that I may have to fight someday.

I understand that some people will say anything on the internet under the cloak of anonymity, but some of these people truly consider themselves Soldiers of Christ.  The right voice goes off in their heads one day, somebody's going to get hurt.  If you are going to be an atheist in today's world, you had better be ready to act when it hits the fan... because it might someday.  Some of these people are crazier than shithouse rats, and doing 25 to life for killing you or I is small price to pay to make points with their IBSD.

Thanks for the FSTDT site.  Looks like fun.

Like most other things we go though steps or stages to becoming an atheist or becoming an unbeliever. But again like most everything else the steps are different. Some remind me of a two year old. He resists and is stubborn and wants to do it his own way. Some amble along not even knowing or caring where it leads them. Some tippy toe around not wanting anybody to see them. Still others march head on. Some hem and haw before testing the water. Some don't even have to move...they just arrive.
My own steps went something like this: secret thoughts, seeking information, scared, hinting, admiting, anger, not giving a damn.

And I think you are right. The battle is coming.

But it makes me mad when we are called angry atheists.  Yes, I am angry but not at any god. Angry because things are shoved down my throat.

I used to watch this guy on TV RABBI GELLMAN because I thought it was nice that he and a Christian minister could be so chummy. Who are they kidding?

However, after reading through some of these FSTDT posts, I'm starting to take less of a 'ha-ha, look at the goofy fundie' tack and beginning to appreciate how deeply disturbed some of these people are.  I'm beginning to accept the fact that I may have to fight someday.

The thing is though, it's highly likely that many of these people are in fact taking advantage of the veil of anonymity that the Internet provides when they spew their bullshit.  I'd say about 99% of them are, and here's why.  Go to any heavily populated internet forum, regardless of what it's devoted to, and you will find trolls that behave exactly like these fundies.  They talk a big game, they act all tough, yet most of them are probably very timid in real life, and would never have the guts to act that way in public; hence they come online to vent, to get attention, and most of all to overcompensate.  The reason they say such stupid things is because they KNOW it's going to get a reaction - Carico is a case in point.  They're not interested in discussing or debating it; they're just using the online forums to wipe their asses.

This is why I still think that the best approach is to just step back and keep laughing at the goofy fundies.  If you let them upset you, or if you end up taking them more seriously than they were actually being, it means they've accomplished what they set out to do.  They are trolls first and foremost.  Religious bigotry is just a means to this end.  They're no different from those asswipes who post advertisements, pornography, racist tirades, or posts that exceed the character limit just to break the page.

I have to agree with you Silentknight. The internet is a great tool for controlling peoples true identitys while allowing them to fume and rant their heads off. If everyones address and name and phone number were included with each post, surely the rhetoric would cool down and the post count dwindle significantly. Most folks just want to get on with their lives, go about their business and be comfortable. Just look at us here. We are as guilty of it as anyone. We say things here that we would never say in a crowded room. We rant and rave because we know that here, we are amongst friends and we understand the frustrations of being non-believers. There is no harm done yet it provides us an outlet. HOWEVER it is not the us-es that will create the battles in the future. There are groups of people out there in fundyland that are just itching for a fight. Like the vigilantes, the Klan, the Nazi party and many so called militia groups, these folks are obsessed with pressing their "Agenda" and killing everyone who doesn't agree. We must all be on guard and ready for the fight when it comes, and it will come. The government of this country is well over 200 years old now and it's weaknesses are beginning to show. These fanatical groups will take advantage of those chinks in our armor and if we are not on guard, they will slip into positions of power without so much as a whisper. I have seen it in other countries and don't think it can't happen here. We are a divided country, and being that, we are at our weakest point right now. I'm not talking about arming yourselves andsanding 12 hour watches, being all paranoid and seeing conspiracys everywhere. No, what I a saying is it's up to each of us-es to be vigilant and keep our government accountable. Vote for the best people who have some chance of winning and beating down the ignorance of bigotry, prejudice, seperatism and social division. That includes intolerance under any flag, religious or political.

FlatEarth's choice for today, 1/10/07:

"[You should excuse the expression, but how does one get 'initiated' into homosexuality?]

Sadly! We know it is only some of the many ways they try to initiate by molestation of our children and young adults.

Another way they try to initiate our children into homosexuality is by using a very subtle form of molestation and one that is also very offensive in that it perverts the minds of innocent young children, is to write vulgar books about homosexual relationships and read them to children in kindergarten and 7 year old children in the 2nd grade! They dare to introduce these teaching into the school systems curriculum to our very very young children , as if it to be a "normal" type of relationship. Another way is to write books about teens having explicit homosexual acts and show them to kids in high school and give children sex education classes which shows them how to have so called safe sex with the same sex. Those are just a few of the many ways in which the homosexual pedophiles (called pederasts) use as part of Their Agenda to initiate and brainwash the minds of our babies and young adults without our consent!

So does that mean if you read the Bible to young children they will want to try walkng on water, or staying alive in a lions den or maybe a furnace? Maybe if we read superhero books to kids they will think they can fly? How about if you read them the catacysm, will that make them want to rape alter boys?  Whatta bunch of hogshit.

I think that says it all, especially the first part.  There are those who believe that the only way to beat the fundamentalists is to become one themselves.  If you look at the kinds of things these extremist groups believe, what can you infer about them?  They're certainly paranoid; they believe that their designated enemy (minorities, homosexuals, zionists, etc.) are everywhere, in control, and out to get them.  They've armed themselves in many cases, and they think they are fighting the vast conspiracy that is out to get them.  Therefore, I agree, there's no need to act like that.

(This is part of the reason why I'm pissed that EA has been taken over by conspiracy theorists and militant atheists.)

FlatEarth's choice for 1/11/07:

An oldie but goodie...from 2002

"[Replying to 'Hell is bullshit']

Uh, I heard recent "scientific" discovery that the core of our earth...that's right, that hot, steaming core. Apparently, some scientists shoved some microphone below the earth's surface, and they recorded agonizing screams of human misery.

Not to mention the irrefutable Nine Gates of Hell scattered around the earth. If you're skeptical, may I suggest that you visit at least one of them?"

I just spotted this one on there:

"We now predict a terrorist Dirty Bomb or Nuclear Bomb will hit the UN plaza in Midtown Manhattan on 2007Tebbeth23 (Sundown Tuesday January 16th 2007 to Sundown Wednesday January 17th 2007)

If nothing happens by the end of Tebbeth i.e. by January 23/24, 2007, then we again really really do run out of options in our present understanding."

The Lord's Witnesses


Better get the fuck outta Manhattan this weekend, boys!
:farao:

PS: Maybe no need to panic after all - on their website, they admit to a previous 24 nuclear prediction errors. TRUE BIBLE CODE

I still don' tunderstand why people, like this one and Pat Robertson, who "predict" terrorist attacks in the US are still walking around loose. Why doesn't Homeland Security gaffle them up and send them to be waterboarded in Gitmo? They apparently have information that could save American lives, so they should be no different than anyone else with such information.
