As it should.

Which is why we don't teach it as science in any of its many guises.

Fundamentalism in a Nutshell award for this guy.

Mr. Tambourine Man

Corollary: Creationists have always been impervious to logic, evidence, and reason.

The natural question, then, is how they can debate Creationism without any of those things. It's surprising how many people consider what boils down to "Because I said so" a valid argument.

I love how AV's so darn proud of his ignorance.

Pride is a sin (Proverbs 11:2). As, incidentally, is ignorance (Proverbs 2).

I found this stuck to my monitor today:

(1) So clearly evolution is true because the not says so.
(2) We know the note is true because it was written by God.
(3) We know it was written by God because the note says so.
(4) And we have already proved the note it true in step (2).

What fundie can fail to be convinced by such an argument?

"An Inconvenient Truth" Award

Mr. Tambourine:

The love of "I said so" stems from "God said so". Since God 'says so' then if I say so, it's just like what god would want. That's their 'deep reasoning'.

Doctor Whom

Lifetime "Nutshell" achievement award?

This guy actually stumbled on to some truth. There is no way you can believe in Creationism if you make deductions using logic or reason based on the evidence.

Creationists by definition don't deduce anything.

I guess without logic, evidence and reason, creationism must rely on "binary emotionalism", ignorance, superstition and gullibility.

hurm...well put?

Mister Spak

So close and yet so far award.

1/25/2008 4:44:37 PM


I read the entire thread. It's nice to see that most people on the Christian Forums are getting fed up with this guy. He has a reputation for lying and moving goal posts.

1/25/2008 4:44:54 PM


Heh. This man's logic is almost as weird as his username.

1/25/2008 4:53:12 PM


And yet you insist it be taught as science?

1/25/2008 4:57:06 PM

David B.

I think AV just thinks we shouldn't teach science.

1/25/2008 5:24:48 PM

In that case, it's a waste of time. If a science branch wannabe wants to be legitimate, it has to be one of those things. Otherwise, that's not legitimate.

Might as well let my snark license expire. With AV1611VET online, the jokes just write themselves.

I nominate this guy for a "Nut In A Fundamentalism Shell" Award. At least he's honest here in admitting that he's ignorant, illogical, and irrational, and that we're just the opposite. The infuriating thing is that he's still so darned self-righteously smug about it, as if ignorance, illogic, and irrationality were virtues to be proud of. It boggles the mind.

Are we positive he isn't a incredibly bad but incredibly persistent comedian?

1/25/2008 6:40:29 PM


Can't we have monthly awards again?
This so deserves one.

@ Osiris: No.

But if he is a troll then he deserves our respect for his devotion to teasing so many idiocies out of the real fundies.

1/25/2008 6:41:14 PM


"Ignorance is Strength" award, anyone?
