Blind Faith is a Sickness
So…talking (arguing) with a Christian fundie over the past several weeks (three 45 minute sessions). He’s certain that god exists…period. First he started with the classic fundie arguments, all easily taken apart as you know. He acknowledged every tactical defeat to his credit, but he didn’t argue too aggressively. After many hours we covered extensive ground, then he made his final stand and here it is, “You would know that god exists if you were not so wrapped up in human arguments. If you truthfully seek god with your whole hart he will come to you. You cannot know god unless you open your mind to the possibility that he does exist.” That hit me between the eyes like a bolt of lightning. I finally understand the delusion that the fundie suffers. When he said this I saw the look in his eyes. It was the glassed over crazy look like he was strung out on some designer drug. He was HIGH ON GOD, or high on the belief in god. This is a mental disease and a complete and total loss of objective reality. I now realized that I have never truly been religious. I once did believe in a god, but grew out of it. This guy will not grow out of it. He is completely insane. I now understand the martyr. Scary stuff.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.
