Quote# 77691

[I've always wondered why god always chose the ignorant, meek, humble and illiterate to reveal his precepts to.]

He says why -- to confound Homo sapienism:

1 Corinthians 1:27a But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise;

[Homo Sapienism?! What on earth is that meant to mean?]

The belief that we are Homo sapiens, along with all the scientific justification and associated rhetoric.

But...but...even a creationist would...

I'm sure he has a 'point', but bugger me, I can't find it.

He chose the ignorant and illiterate because he, himself, is not terribly bright.

H. sapiens is just the Latin word for the English word human. Saying humans aren't H. sapiens is like saying a dog isn't a Canis lupis familaris. It's just playing with words.

Congrats, you're almost as dumb as Cassiterides.

11/28/2010 4:44:48 PM


The word 'sapiens' is Latin. It is declined


There is no such word as sapienism - not even in English, which does tend to borrow and adapt readily from other languages.

And to demolish your foolish argument, look again at the quote: 'things' are not people.

Tu, mi amice, es stultissimus.

Get an education.

@solomon grundy

AV has over 1.5 million posts and been a member since 2006---my math says thats over 900 posts/day for 4 years. I don't think he's real.

11/28/2010 5:13:05 PM


I don't even understand this person's thesis. What in the hell is he/she trying to say?

Doubting Thomas

Yes, let's all be dumb cro-magnons living day to day trying to survive with minimal intelligence. To hell with homo sapiens and all their higher intelligence.

God is still a gigantic, immature pissant, part ten million and one.

We are homo sapiens, well maybe not you Vet. Your likely this:

Homo neanderthalensis

(Apologies to neanderthals.)

11/28/2010 7:19:37 PM


I actually argued with someone in real life that we are Homo sapiens, so it's possible that he isn't a Poe.

11/28/2010 7:38:08 PM


You know, if you think about what he's saying, it still doesn't make any fucking sense.

Do you think he's one of Schafly's editors?

11/28/2010 9:21:56 PM


I kinda missed this guy for a while, there. And now I'm wondering WHY I missed him...

11/28/2010 11:14:26 PM


You're an idiot. EOS!

Tolpuddle Martyr

You don't think that you are "man the wise", you may just be right on that one...

For the millionth time, ignorant "Veteran", homo sapiens are not HOMOSEXUALS.

11/29/2010 2:42:36 AM


You know, there is an interpretation of this that kind of makes sense, although in a gramatically incorrect way.

It is pretty arrogant that we named our species "wise man" (or "wise person" according to my more modern Latin dictionary). The belief that we are "Homo sapiens" has got us into trouble plenty of times. Scientists are not immune.

It's a bit hard to tell, but it is possible that in this case AV1611VET is merely guilty of the failure to use inverted commas. Although I've read many of his quotes, and I think a lack of punctuation is probably the least of his worries.

11/29/2010 2:56:44 AM


You are still as adorable as you were in the past, AV.

11/29/2010 3:32:58 AM


God wants the same credulity from us that a con artists does. It's no surprise why a con artist wants such gullibility in his listeners, but why does Almighty God? AV's answer exacerbates the conundrum, rather than answering it.

Mister Spak

"I've always wondered why god always chose the ignorant, meek, humble and illiterate to reveal his precepts to"

Because only people like AV1611VET will believe that kind of wharrrgarrble.

11/29/2010 5:57:29 AM


AV1611VET's ignorance is like the expanding universe, ever accelerating and creates it's own negative energy the whole time!

11/29/2010 10:04:57 AM


Myself, I am fully prepared to agree. AV1611VET does not, indeed, belong to Homo Sapiens.

11/29/2010 1:49:32 PM

Mycoid Mike

Fine, AV1611VET, you don't have to be a Homo sapiens if you don't want to be. I hereby declare you to be specimen of Cucurbita putrescens. That describes you better anyway.

11/29/2010 6:09:48 PM

Prof. Bill Hill

You are right AV1611VET, God is a particularly powerless deity and a rather stupid one at that. At least we agree on something AV1611VET, but I didn't think it would be that God is a useless nincompoop. However, credit where credit's due, your assertion that the Bible tells us that God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, is spot on. Well done you. And a more stupid plan it would be impossible to conceive of, even for a supposedly omniscient deity. It was a plan that was never going to work, since the foolish things of the world succeed only in confounding their fellow fools and other gullible idiots. The wise laugh their bollocks off at the antics of the stupid dolts, such as yourself AV1611VET.

Homo Sapienism?
