And so on... there are lots of them! I don't find it particularly surprising as they all seem to have replaced their brains with Bibles.


Yes indeed, Sir Isaac Newton did just that. No brains, just a Bible. Ditto with the founders of the Ivy League Colleges they organized for the purpose of teaching and learning.


Completely right! Newton was a barely literate hick who just about managed to read the parts of the Bible which elucidate gravity! Imagine if he'd been a Muslim instead! We'd still be floating off everytime we sat down!

An 'atheist' college? What would such an institution teach? You really are special, aren't you fella?


Betelgeuse wrote:Again and again, I see arrogant pretensions of intellect by atheists, who hatefully attack "Bible-thumpers."


Again and again you go looking for people to pick a fight with by shoving random assortments of words into sentences and pretending they mean something substantive. And ohhh the foolish atheists have the temerity to point and laugh at you! The wickedness of the unbelievers, eh?

Betelgeuse wrote:Then you have the temerity to claim you have been subjected to the same ad hominem attacks you relentlessly repeat.

Atheists are consumed by hatred, intolerance, and narcissism. What a pleasant bunch.


Yup, and you're a model of Christian love and tolerance, eh? :)

The good old religious argument: we're thick, therefore god! :thumbup:

Just wondering here, is this guy just banging on about his blood god, or does he thing the earth is flat, or both?

I tried to get an unit on atheism going at a secular university. Apart from academics I was friends with, the only people who seemed keen were the Theology department. But they were broke so.......

Of course the Earth is flat silly. You never played snooker or bowls! :doh:

The world is flat, and sits on the backs of four elephants (there used to be five), which themselves stand on top of a great turtle.
I've read it in books.

I wonder how you replace the elephants as they age and die? I suppose that is where the earthquakes come from. :)

No no, those are simply the elephants shuffling their feet.
What you are referring to is called the The Greater Tumults. And in one case The Surprisingly Short and but Totally Counts General Shaking.

Isn't multicolor/multifont par for the course for websites built by Strange People On The Internet, or those parodying them?
Just look at the average amateur conspiracy or new-age-bollocks site.
I don't do sarcasm smileys, but someone as bright as you has probably figured that out already.

Or in many cases, epilepsy. Because quite a few of them have execrable style usages as an additional annoyance, including lurid, retina searing colour schemes, egregious use of flashing sections of content (frequently set to flash at peak epilepsy inducing frequency), and EVEN MORE EGREGIOUS USE OF CAPS LOCK in places where said use appears to have been deliberately calculated to induce the most annoyance in intelligent life forms. For a particularly vicious example of the genre, with flagrant breaches of every style and taste rule in the W3C manual, take a peek at the Fixed Earth website, but only whilst wearing eye protection. I am not joking about this latter warning, that site is so awful to look at, you'll need a welding visor.

At least diabetes inducing excesses of girly pink and sugary, trying-too-hard-to-be-cute graphics of the sort you see on teenage girls' MySpace pages, or sites devoted to those cut out doll figures that are popular with the 5-8 age demographic, have the excuse that the producers thereof don't know any better, are aiming their sites unashamedly at people with like tastes, and have generally harmless content. The conspirabollocks sites are intended to be exercises in polemical advocacy, but could only possibly work in the manner intended, with someone who has suffered critical brain damage. Anyone with more than about fifteen functioning neurons takes one look at these sites, and feels an involuntary urge to vomit and run away from the screen.
