The Stupid! It Burns! (don't argue with me edition)

the stupid! it burns! Why You Should Not Argue With Atheists
In fact, let me go a step further and suggest you avoid arguing atheists altogether, in any forum.

I’ll tell you why: atheism is an indefensible superstition.

It is a flamboyantly false belief clung to desperately by only the least imaginative and the most emotionally partitioned of people. ...

Atheism is only, and ever was, an emotional argument.


  1. When you first hear about psychological projection, it sounds like one of the nuttier Freudian ideas that would have been discredited by now.

    But, I've lost count of how many theists I've seen say stuff like this, and it can only be called textbook projection.

  2. Hardly a projection, gentlemen. It is rather a simply tally of those men who hold certain belief in certain orbits.

    Nothing more complicated than that.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
