Quote# 2691

There's nothing funnier in the world than listening to evoluddites and evolosers sniveling and whining about "quote mining".

In real life, there's a very easy way to avoid being quoted as having said something:

Don't Say It!!!!!

This guy really doesn't seem to understand the concept of quote mining despite how often he does it.

That's the fun of the written word. :)

Evoluddites? Aren't you guys the ones who want to bring down the scientific method?

Yup

Is this the same medved who wrote?
The thing you really DON'T want is women [...] men should be about the norm. [*]

And?
A Christian can be an asshole [*]

And?
I view Christianity sort of the same way Churchill viewed democracy, i.e. as the worst religion there could possibly be [*]

Well, I guess if he thinks quote-mining is okay...

Quoting is perfectly appropriate and reasonable; quote mining, however, is the deliberately disingenuous, duplicitous, dishonest practice of quoting only portions of a person's comments out of context in order to make them appear to mean something quite different from what they meant when in context.

Naturally, it is one of creationists' favorite weapons, since lying (and, in this sort of application, bearing false witness against the person being quoted) evidently is considered perfectly okay if it is done for the purpose of trashing truth and reality in order to prop up the fairy tales in the Bible.

As for the coining and use of the term \"evoluddites,\" THAT is just about as ironic as can be, since \"luddites\" are hyperconservative and fight AGAINST scientific progress, such as the progress that results in evolutionary theory. Those people who accept evolution are among the progressives; it is the ones who try to deny it who are the luddites.

So, as usual, the fundie Christian spin on things is to lie, lie, and lie again in support of what they call \"Truth.\"

\"Evolosers.\" Wow, medved, that hurts. Sniffle.

There's nothing funnier in the world than fundies making up words for people who understand ToE

I proudly consider myself an evoluddite. Whatever that is.

Yes, please medved. Don't Say It!!!

How ironic that we are quoting this.

I made an animated gif image of Osama Bin Laden anally raping Jesus. Here's what Free Conservatives forum member medved thinks of it "There's nothing funnier in the world"

Thanks medved and may we continue to mock Jebus together for many years to come.

I find this so unfair. Quote mining doesn't work much for us hethens. You can take a fundie's quote out of context, in context, or put it in a totally different one & it still doesn't make any sense whatsoever & ends up on FSTDT.

Boohoo. Ruin our fun will you...

Uh, can someone translate this for me. I was under the impression that it was English, but upon further examination, I was wrong.

That could apply to virtually anybody. What would the point of making a society?

Creationist don't just "quote mine" they quote mine out of context. Removed from the body of work one or two sentences can be read as a statement to the other side. Within the body of work they're revealed to be questions to set up/answer the point or the premptive strike against predictable arguments.

Of course, Ironic, coming from a site that continually misrepresents people while complaining when their entire article is reproduced outside their comfort zone.

It's always "sniveling and whining" with us, isn't it? And when you bitch and moan that some people are allowed to married and aren't being murdered in the streets in droves, that's "morality".
