Good question, and very poetically put.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

From Facebook - my favorite Uncle George Takei's reaction to the Supreme Court's decision on the unconstitutionality of DOMA -
Quote: When I checked FB again this morning...

...it was as if 1,000 unicorns had eaten nothing but skittles.

I have to admit, I got a little misty. Shy

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Either Bucky Balls interferes or the best the idiot militant atheist can come up with is links and an imaginary victory. In my first one on one "debate" here the idiot atheist in question had a team of nine people just to help him figure out how to post a response, and they still couldn't do it. I had to do it for them. They must have worked at a college or something. Overeducated idiots.

Now, I put this up here because of the sheer awesomeness of it's stupidity that I do not want to forget it. Here, Mr. "Let's use suck-puppets, that's totally in the rules" seems completely delusional and disconnected from the world. The bolded portion is of special mention; how can somebody ever be "overeducated"? In my eyes, one can only ever be undereducated, no matter how much they know and have been educated, there is and will always be still more for them to learn...

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Maybe its the alliteration, the musical flow to the words, but whatever it is, it is simoultaneously poignant and funny.

Worst
