Quote# 89893

"If black people are equal to white people, why can’t they magically erase racism?"

Might work on somebody who accepts the liberal fallacy that blacks are as intelligent as whites. I’m not one of those.

A racist as well as an MRA. Colour me surprised.

As for the bit in quotes ... WTF?

Oh My Dog!

If black people are equal to white people, why can’t they magically erase racism?

In order to make an intelligent argument, it has to at least make sense.

You're not to bright yourself, are you? I don't think you're equal to anyone in that department. But being stupid is typical for a racist.

So he hates women and minorities. At least Otis' chances of reproducing are pretty slim.

So, what, you can do magic?

Oh, here is Otis, again. He appears to have ignored my wise counsel on the proper use of soap, hot water, and brushes until the toejam reached right up and clogged his cranium.

All this guy needs now is to make a few choice remarks on 9/11 "truth" or Obama's birth certificate, and he can grace all three corners of this catalogue of craziness simultaneously.

Those who buy into the notion that magic works... are called TODDLERS.

"If black people are equal to white people, why can’t they magically erase racism?"

By that "logic" white people must be "inferior" as well since whites haven't been able to entirely erase racist feelings and actions towards whites from non-white people. *eyeroll*

The bit in quotes is mocking Sweaty's argument that if women were equal to men, men wouldn't be able to systematically oppress women.

"If helium can lift an airship, why can’t I fly through outer space with a party balloon?"

Might work on somebody who accepts the liberal fallacy of Buoyancy, but I’m not one of those.

"If dogs can hear real good, why can’t they understand English?"

Might work on somebody who accepts the liberal fallacy of temporal lobes. I’m not one of those.

"If God is omniscient, omnipotent and omnibenevolent, why can’t he magically erase evil?"

Might work on somebody who accepts the liberal fallacy that God is a nicey-nice hippy Communist. I’m not one of those.

"If ___________, why can’t they _________?"

Might work on somebody who accepts the liberal fallacy that _________. I’m not one of those.

This is fun!

Ah, Otis, I've known house plants with higher IQs than you. Some slime molds even.

@J. James - "If babies' brains are 25% developed at 12 months old why can't they perform 3rd grade math?" (math from 1/3 of the way through school)

Might work on somebody who accepts the liberal fallacy that neural pathway development and neurological physiognomy is not the same thing as cognitive practice. I'm not one of those.



THIS IS FUN! :D

This guy seems like a Poe to wind up here twice. in a row.

"Those who buy into the notion that magic works... are called TODDLERS."

Irrelevant, since the quote does not refer to literal magic. Real magic (magick) is practiced by adept occult practitioners and you should not assume that it doesn't work!

@whatever:....think before you post...please? D Laurier was talking about a wave of the wand (you know, as in Harry Potter), not magick a la Gardner.

Magic doesn't work, because it doesn't exist, no matter how you spell it. If you think otherwise, James Randi has some money for you.

10/5/2012 5:09:01 AM

whatever

@Pikachukid
I do think before I post, and it doesn't matter if D. Laurier was referring to a wave of a magic wand. I was responding to his comment, and my response is still valid.

@Leighton Buzzard
Do not state your opinions bluntly as if they were proven facts. It literally makes you a fundy. An atheist fundy.

This is what makes FSTDT a pots-and-kettles battleground. It's nothing more than blatant hypocrisy to tackle religious fundies as closed-minded then come out with an equally blinkered, closed-minded response yourself.

10/5/2012 5:33:11 AM

whatever

To actually respond to the quote itself...

Where is your evidence that blacks are not as intelligent as whites?

10/5/2012 5:40:09 AM

Canadia

There's nothing close-minded about requiring evidence for extraordinary claims, which was Leighton was actually doing; provide that evidence if you want to be taken seriously.

@ whatever

...you're crticising us because we don't believe magic exists?

Right then, whatever's credibility, it was nice knowing you.

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Wait, you're serious?!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Saying that magic exists is so ridiculous, it doesn't even deserve refutation. It merely deserves mockery.

And I wouldn't even know where to BEGIN refuting it- how do you refute a testable claim that has never ONCE been shown to work? Something that has never ONCE been observed in action? You can't refute it, because there's nothing to refute. All you have to do is cite all of human history, observations and science. The entirety of nonfictional works of mankind are a testament to the nonexistence of magic.

@All of you...

I stated that "Real magic (magick) is practiced by adept occult practitioners and you should not assume that it doesn't work!"

I cannot vouch for it's efficacy but I'm not going to take the ridiculous blinkered attitude that some of you have.

And yes, J. James, I am addressing you. Although I am also addressing others.

I have had experiences where I have seen spirit, I have had clairvoyant experiences, and I also have clairaudient ability. I have seen the energy of chakras interact with a crystal pendulum and I have taken part in group meditation sessions. There is so much more to our universe than "what-you-see-is-all-there-is". If you want to take this attitude and maintain closed-minded skepticism against everything that does not fit within your worldview, then fine. But understand why I see you hard-core atheists as just another variety of fundy. I would continue, but I must now leave for work.

So you reject science as well as women and, apparently, basic hygiene.

10/5/2012 12:42:40 PM

J. James

@whatever

Sure, we should believe you because EVERYONE knows that anecdotal evidence with a side of confirmation bias and cognitive bias is the STRONGEST form of evidence.

All who disbelieve are close-minded!

@whatever

I'm on your side. I believe you. I've got your back, hon!



@the jerks laughing at 'whatever'

To the rest of you guys, you're being a bunch of bullies. Knock it off! I know you don't believe that stuff & that's fine but must you be dickweeds about it?

To lump 'whatever', myself & others...spiritual/theistic people who still believe in science, logic, reason & hate these fundies & bigots as much as you...in the same category as those deranged fundie zealots is stupid.

Is 'whatever' calling for Holy War? Is 'whatever' calling for suppressing science or comprehensive sex ed? Is 'whatever' trying to outlaw birth control or abortion? Is 'whatever' out banning books or blowing up abortion clinics? To all of these, the answer is NO!

Now can we all just drop this silliness & get back to the subject of the real baddie, 'Otis the Sweaty' and his brain-dead pronouncements?
