Examples of Darwinist “Free” Thought Blogging
|August 27, 2012||Posted by scordova under Atheism, Culture, Humor|
There is never ending drama over at Darwinist Ed Brayton’s “Free” Thought Blogs (FTB). We have the example of Greg Laden (affectionately known as Greg bin Laden by some), describing how he intends to terrorize a US Army soldier:
Think about that. You f–king sh-t.
Now, get forever out of my life. Do not turn back. You do not deserve to even know the people you’ve insulted in that idiotic post you wrote. Don’t ever, ever find yourself in my presence or think you deserve to breath the air that I, and Jen, and Stephanie, and Gret and Ophelia and PZ and the rest of us breath, because you do not.
If you do make that apology it better be from laying face down in the mud.
Have a nice day and kiss my ass. Greg
PS, don’t you dare ask, ever again, for an upvote or any other support from your colleagues. I’ll kick your f–king ass if you do. You will regret it. (Unless that apology is forthcoming.)
Greg is quite the humble Darwinist isn’t he: “Don’t ever, ever find yourself in my presence or think you deserve to breath the air that I…and the rest of us breath…”
Greg not only terrorizes US Army soldiers but he assails the Christian faith. As an anthropologist he lived with the cannibals in the Congo (and I presume he “broke bread” with the cannibals too). He projects his studies of cannibalism onto Christian theology:
Suddenly, the Eucharist makes sense. The consumption of human tissue in Europe for quite some time was a primarily Christian practice. Some of the tissues were harvested from the bodies of the freshly executed. Were the fabled crowds gathered to see the bad men hang after something other than a good show? Was it like a drive-through, a buffet, or more of a sit-down affair?
But Greg isn’t the only Darwinist at Brayton’s “Free” Thought Blogs that has assailed Christian theology. We have Richard Carrier who claims that Christ may not have existed (contrary to what 99% of atheist scholars believe). Carrier boasts of his “intellectual artillery” in the defense of “Free” thinking atheism:
I will provide any intellectual artillery they need to expand this cause and make it successful….
I call everyone now to pick sides (not in comments here, but publicly, via Facebook or other social media): are you with us, or with them; are you now a part of the Atheism+ movement, or are you going to stick with Atheism Less? Then at least we’ll know who to work with. And who to avoid.
And true to his word, when one atheist (named XTOG) protested that “Atheism does not have the luxury of kicking people out of its movement”, Carrier responded:
Yes, it does. Atheism+ is our movement. We will not consider you a part of it, we will not work with you, we will not befriend you. We will heretofore denounce you as the irrational or immoral scum you are (if such you are). If you reject these values, then you are no longer one of us. And we will now say so, publicly and repeatedly. You are hereby disowned.
And when another atheist protested that he just wanted to remain a plain vanilla “A” atheist instead of upgrading to become an “A+” atheist, Carrier had this to say:
So, one vote for douchery. Got it.
The ever colorful Thundef00t (an atheist himself) found a parody of Carrier’s call for Atheists to go from plain vanilla “A” atheism to “A+” atheism: (the unembedded ULR for this video posted by IntegralMath is here)
So much for Darwinist “Free” Thought.
Jerry Coyne and Nick Matzke get some of their concpetions about Christianity from Richard Carrier. Matzke is reputed to be a big Carrier fan.
