We see his perspective as scewed but he doesnt.....
So theres that.

The rub always happens in about the same place...asking someone to try a different perspective and observe what their motivation might be for not dping so.
The weird thing is, if Christianity-bashing was the topic, then we'd be all on the same page. We'd all see the logical connection between moral claims and people's behavior in real life. We'd be skeptical where skepticism is due. Hell, people even would get passionate and rationally-spiritually starry-eyed Carl Sagan style in response to Christians.
I have a hard time understanding why people can't generalize that ability. Why can't we be like that about pretty much damn near everything?
The story of my life:
The internet: Christianity is bullshit, because it's internally inconsistent! Me: OK!
The internet: Government is bullshit, because it's internally inconsistent! Me: OK!
The internet: Virtue of family is bullshit, because it's internally inconsistent! Me: OK!
Everyone else: I'll agree with you about one of the first two and I will fuckin' hate your guts for doubting the rest!

And the reality is that
  • Christianity is bullshit because there is no evidence that it is true;
  • Government is inconsistent because it is invented by people and administered by people, and people are inconsistent;
  • The family is a biological, evolutionary, and developmental fact. Deal with it.

I don't hate you, I just think your thinking is bizarrely distorted, and so many things you think you know are demonstrably false.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I *despise* you for being an idiot with an over-inflated opinion of yourself but I don't particularly hate you. Carry on with your little persecution complex though Drinking Beverage

Lumi being Lumi...

funny though I read his first post in this thread again.. and his arrogance may of been overmatched by his ignorance. Him disregarding people who say man makes up his own meaning as if nobody ever explains it is, him ignoring a whole distinct area in the philosophical world he claims ot know so much about from the 20th century. It's nice I can find his posting here even more amusing than before.

Go take a look at his "No wing" thread... I dunno. Probably the first 5 pages or so... Easier to show than to explain. Basically he spends a lot of time telling us how intelligent he is and how stupid we all are, and a bunch of us have finally had it with him Drinking Beverage
