It must have been the beret and string of onions that gave it away.

Um, you were home schooled, weren't you?

Pick up a book once in a while. One that is not 2000 years old and on it's millionth revision/interpretation.

Research? What Research?

I don't think listening to the voices in your head constitutes as 'research'.

Translation: Fundie preachers made up the story about arthritis to avoid having to answer hard questions.

And monkey-face.

And a different morphology altogether from modern humans.

This is categorically untrue, never has been true, and doesn't even have roots in the truth. I'm sorry, but

Fuck me, that's one hell of a lie right there. Bless, though, thinking it was one man......The Neanderthal Man, no less.

Any guesses on what his super-powers were?

You just keep saying that. Our economy will need burger-flippers for the foreseeable future.

What do fundies hope to accomplish by lying? Any fundementalist Christians who happen to read my post, please answer. Is it fear of God not existing so you won't be in Heaven after you die. Are you secretly afraid the atheists are right about death being dissolution. Trying to get as many followers to start a theocracy? This is a serious question, do you have an answer?

That was one of a half-dozen known hoaxes, among many other legitimate finds to show that Neanderthal men did exist...funny, however, what you choose to be skeptical about.

Neanderthal Man was confirmed, and a few hoaxes here and there do nothing to negate the observed, positive evidence FOR it.

Former fundie, so I think I can answer.

Their faith is that weak.

It's not so much a fear of God not existing, but a fear of God period. Remember this is the religion that sends you to hell for basic natural urges. It's a religion that tells you that everyone is going to hell unless you have enough faith. But if you read the bible, having enough faith is an impossibility. If you have enough faith,you can move mountains (literally). Then people around you start lying. They start speaking in tongues, having visions, cast out demons. So you start lying, and the more you lie, the more you're accepted. But deep down you:
A)hate yourself for lying, because lying is a sin.
B)fear that you are going to hell for lying
C)actually believe that the others really have enough faith for these great and wonderful things

So you start hating yourself, because try as you might, you just don't seem to measure up for god. This leads to an extremely bitter outlook on life, and instead of trying to find internal peace, you start looking outwards at all the earthly 'sin'. Your leaders tell you that we could have paradise on earth if we could only stop the sinners. Also those sinful thoughts that everyone has. Ever looked at the neighbours new car and said "wow, wish I had a car like that?" - sin. Looked at your wife in a lustful manner? - sin. Checked the size of the guy beside you in the showers? - sin. Masturbated? - sin. Not having Jesus speak to you personally? - not a sin, but you're not worthy. There's so much contradiction in the bible, that everything is a sin. Give me any action that a human can perform, and I will find you biblical quotes that can be construed to show it as a sin. They even believe in sins that are not mentioned anywhere in the bible.

That's why they get so vicious when they're attacked. A person who is strong in their faith (whatever faith that may be) would not be ruffled by a challenge to their religion. They also don't feel the urge to shove it down others throats.

Hoe that helps.

@Antichrist: Kind of what I always suspected. Nice to see at least someone gave up that bullshit.

Edwardo, the patron saint of douche-baggery

Thanks, Antichrist. I was in that frame of mind for a while. So much pressure to give the impossible. Yet, still, at the end of the day, all those fuckers in that church ask you for more. The problem is, when you don't comply, you feel so dirty. Everything feels wrong if you don't go along with exactly what they say. But, those who have gone through that transition know the feeling. It is the feeling of being brainwashed. I say congrats to those who have found a way out.

Won't someone think of the poor Neanderthal children?

"Later research found it to be one of an old man that had arthritis."

What do you expect? The guy was 130,000 years old. Your athritis will get to be a bitch over that length of time. Sadly the prehistoric tubes of Deep Heat were not fossilised and as such could not be found around the remains.

Thanks for posting your insights into the mind of a fundie, Antichrist.
