just me

A day in the life of fundy debating...

"The universe DOES revolve around the earth!" (GEOCENTRISM! GEO-FUCKING CENTRISM!!! WHAT FUCKING CENTURY IS THIS!?!?!?!?)
"You atheists are so arrogant/god created the entire universe just for us!"
"Everything must have a cause/god just exists."
"Catholics are Satanic/Idolterers/going to hell."
"Abortion is murder."
"Homosexuals are evil."
"Evolution is just a theory!" (GAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS THE SEETHING HATRED OF THE STUPID!)
"The eye/bloodcell/banana is irreducably complex and infers a designer!" (No, seriously, the fucking banana...)
"These south american pots prove that man coexisted with dinosaurs!" (They're documented FAKES you numbnuts!)
"The earth is 6,000 years old!" (Look up, what do you see? Stars. How far away do we know they are? Right, what's the speed of light? Good.)

Talkorigins is a fucking godsend but the problem is they never revise their arguments.

So it goes...

Topic: Evolution.
Theist: Cut & paste argument from Behe or some other numbnuts.
Atheist: Cut & paste refutation.
Theist: But... GOD! La la la, I can't hear you!

Atheists have the decency to actually respond to their bullshit but their arguments never progress.

It's shocking, SHOCKING how many people hold these weird sorts of views - mostly Americans and eastern europeans/balkans it seems - not following the Czech model alas - and how extreme they are.

I am sensing the stirrings of a backlash though, but when it'll come I don't know. It has too really.
