Prank Call of Cthulhu: Ray Comfort is probably really mad about everyone trying to penalize him for not understanding a word.

Mostly, though, that's because he thinks "penalize" has something to do with penises.


The etymology of the word is exactly that.

I would not call all Christians stupid but I do call all creationists stupid. If you are dumb enough to believe in creationism there should not even be a seat for you on the short bus of life.

Monotextual, actually.


Homotextual, would be if one was only turned on by one particular genre.

There was a bookstore clerk who corrected someone who asked to see a manager by saying, "It's PERSONager."

This. I'm not sure about the whole believe-in-the-Zombie-or-else bit, but I'm all about forgiving people who recognize their mistakes and repent, especially if they learn from it.


Agreed. Remember: Don't act nubianrdly when issuing apologies for this kinda thing.

So, while the dude is an ignorant fundy, he apologized for being ignorant and said he's still learning.  I'd give him at least a +0.1 for that.
 
2013-04-03 10:09:56 AM
I love that his mind immediately jumped to that conclusion...

To be fair, when I was a moderator for a large Christian group years and years ago, we would constantly get people coming in calling us all sorts of things, highly derogatory and inflammatory.  We were called pedos and worse, we had hackers take over frequently, and even more often people would come in proclaiming to be Christian only to lull us into a false sense of security and begin telling us impossible stories, such as satanic cults the person was a part of, etc.

It put us in a constantly defensive mindset.  So, if I didn't know that word or understand how words were put together, I might have gone as far off the derpy-defensive end as he did.

I did say "if I didn't know or understand how words were put together"... so no, for me, it's not necessary :)

But my point is that you get a little trigger happy with that ban hammer, and you begin jumping to conclusions about those who come in and start arguing...

It's simply amazing that Christians are this mind-bogglingly stupid, and yet people think we should not only listen to them, but try to follow them or become one of them as well.

When our society works so hard to accommodate the delusions, the anti-intellectualism, and the dishonesty of Christians to the point of forcing us to respect them against our common sense, it becomes clear that our nation's future resembles that of a theocratic Afghanistan much more than it does the proverbial shiny city on a hill.  Superstition is a dead weight, and normal people should not be condemned for wanting to excise it from their lives.

No, that's just a fetish.


Really? I figured a fetish would be only reading tomes with gold lettering on red spines. Or a particular love of the crinkled pages of a 1970s penguin.
While someone who reads both fiction and non-fiction would be bitextual.
But, this being FARK, we'd better not start discussing those people who wish they had been born books. That always leads to insensitive types saying that even after the surgery they don't have real pages or that they can tell the difference between a genuine index and a surgically implanted one.

jake_lex: The religious right has just embraced the notion that being a total dumbass is the key to being a good Christian.
I mean, that anti-intellectual aspect has always been there in fundamentalism -- that's kind of the point of fundamentalism, after all, the notion that religion should be the sole and complete shaper of your worldview -- but it's getting louder, more aggressive, and even stupider.


The very first story in the bible, that of Adam and Eve, teaches that having knowledge is a sin.  Also of note is that nudity was not a sin in the eyes of God, it was only when man and woman gained knowledge did they feel it was a sin.

It's not just Christians, it's all fundamentalist belief systems. There are Jewish, Islamic and Bhuddist sects that have many examples of this same sort of thing. It is a major crippling factor to societies around the world.


History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes.

Nah, a fetish is an object, action or situation without which you are unable to be aroused (although this could include red books with gold lettering and so forth). Homotextual would be sexually liking books that are the same subject as yourself...

Don`t get me started on fonts...

Deathfrogg: A "bibliophile" is a person that loves books. I don't know too many christians that love books. Most of the christians I grew up with had no books in their houses, save one.

Reading is for communists!

Unfortunately, many believe that their brand of superstition is special and real. That somehow "whisper into your hands for good things to happen" is totally different than "carry a rabbit's foot around for good luck."

And its companion volume, Atlas Shrugged.

Written by an atheist, inspired by hedonism.

I tried to taste the irony there, but it was so chock full of cognitive dissonance and I just can't pass that like I used to anymore. Not even if it's washed down with schadenfreude tears


Hell, its also the basic tenets of Satanism (Whatever you want to do is worth it), but I didn't want to go full troll.
From the Satanic Bible.

        Satan represents indulgence, instead of abstinence!
        Satan represents vital existence, instead of spiritual pipe dreams!
        Satan represents undefiled wisdom, instead of hypocritical self-deceit!
        Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it, instead of love wasted on ingrates!
        Satan represents vengeance, instead of turning the other cheek!
        Satan represents responsibility to the responsible, instead of concern for psychic vampires!
        Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his "divine spiritual and intellectual development," has become the most vicious animal of all!
        Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!
        Satan has been the best friend the church has ever had, as he has kept it in business all these years!
