Quote# 88028

Disease is mental. It is created by sin, and as i said sin is a transgression of the law. We are born into sin, it is a mental state.

So disease is not part of the 'natural world'.

[Cassiterides, by what mechanism does sin create viruses and bacteria?]

I don't believe in Germ theory of disease.

Oh Dear Fucking god.

He's trying to deny germs exist as there's proof they evolve, hence his posting at the EF forum.

Sorry, that was a dupe. Sending lag. Anyway, to the guy that asked, Crass Cass there is the real deal.

It's amazing he even knows how to type, much less work spell-check.

The Dark Ages are that-a-way, pal.

So what great and terrible sins do plants commit when they are afflicted with disease?

6/27/2012 8:48:36 AM


So ... Penicillin cures sin?


Jesus was made of antibiotics and not wine and crackers?

Seriously. WTF is wrong with you?

Sin causes illness? I'll grant you that eating too much at a buffet causes a lot of discomfort, but I don't think that counts. It's more likely that someone in the kitchen wasn't washing their hands thoroughly.

I don't believe in Germ theory of disease.

Yet, researchers and doctors basing their work on this theory have cured countless illnesses that used to plague the ancient world, including leprosy.
So much for your omnipotent god.

Well, your disease certainly is mental...

6/27/2012 9:46:18 AM


Isn't this Christian Science? Mary Baker Eddy and all that?

6/27/2012 9:57:49 AM


I think we should replace the word "theory" in scientific usage when a theory reaches the point where it isn't disputable anymore, so that these idiots can't seize upon the designation of "theory" to try to trick the vulnerable into thinking that scientific facts are in dispute.
Nobody would claim that the "theory" of gravitation is in dispute, yet these clowns fail to see the both evolution and germs have the same status, this is something that should be addressed.

Let's test this scientifically. I'll inject you full of blood from a person with Ebola, with a chaser of leprosy and HIV. We'll see what happens.

Hell, judging by your posts you're probably already syphilitic.

6/27/2012 10:20:14 AM


Well obviously. That's why you get some leeches to suck the sin out of sick person. Goddamn these people really are stuck in the Middle Ages.

Excuse me while I sneeze on you...

6/27/2012 10:28:57 AM

oh lawd it's eyebeam man

6/27/2012 10:41:25 AM


Back to the Middle Ages! Bring out your dead! Mark the door of the plague victims with a cross! For God has sent his righteous judgement upon them, for their sinful nature!
What, basic hygiene? Washing your hands? Why bother? Don't you know it's just a THEORY?

6/27/2012 10:44:07 AM


Haa haa, this guy's dumber than my dog. And my dog's pretty dumb. He's nice tho (the dog).

6/27/2012 10:45:51 AM


Germs don't believe in the theory of humans, therefore humans don't exist.

6/27/2012 10:47:54 AM


"So disease is not part of the 'natural world.'"

So, when non-human animals get sick it's because they sinned against a god they can't possibly believe in?

Also, sin cannot exist with out a god. Please prove that your God exists before insisting we assume sin is the cause of anything.

Psychology fucking FAIL.

Now get back to work making those fries!

@Anon: Richard Dawkins tried to get "theorum" into the public lexicon as exactly that, but it didn't catch on. But I do agree that it would be nice to have a word that can't be so easily twisted to make it seem like there's no evidence behind something.

6/27/2012 11:59:59 AM

"Disease is mental."

I'd really be interested in hearing what you have to say when you contract a deadly flesh-eating disease and, rather than go see a doctor, you pray to your invisible sky-fairy instead.

6/27/2012 12:21:59 PM


...and yet, antibiotics work.

So basically what you're saying is that your God can be defeated by penicillin.

Which makes your God, well...kind of a wimp.

6/27/2012 1:02:50 PM


I'm glad someone tried, but theorem is too much like theory, it needs to be a totally distinct word for entirely proven scientific facts.
How about Factoid? I like "The Factoid Of Gravitation" or "The Factoid Of Evolution"
Just kidding, but it does need to be a word that doesn't sound anything like theory or hypothesis (not that most of these idiots know what a hypothesis is, but a few might).

Well, ya see, Cass, the important thing isn't whether you believe in the germ theory of disease. It's whether the viruses and bacteria believe in it.

6/27/2012 1:45:17 PM


Its highly likely that Cassiterides is a POE arguing from the creationist side to make them look stupid - and just for shits and giggles to troll the ones who respond to him. He has been banned from every christian forum he has partaken in as well so they obviously suspect something is rotten with this poster. It may be that everyone is responding to a POE who is clearly taking great delight in all the fuss he is causing.
