The Stupid! It Burns! (plausible scenario edition)

the stupid! it burns! I usually don't feature comments here, but this one is too good:
Plausible scenario: Ignorant person or small group converts to New Atheism and misinterprets the mockery and ridicule of Christians and Muslims as endorsement for actions of greater magnitude than mockery and ridicule targeting Christians and Muslims. Ignorant person then bombs a church in an attempt to impress New Atheists or to demonstrate his zealousness for the cause.

Here's another scenario, just as plausible as Grim's. Schizophrenic reads a coded message into this picture. He wishes to impress the shape-shifting lizard people who are secretly ruling the world, so he decides to dump 1,000 tons of fertilizer into the lobby of WKRP in Cincinnati. Clearly, lolcats is acting terribly irresponsibly in posting these sorts of pictures. Who knows what might happen!?

Good grief.

  1. This GRIM guy is the same stupid we see with most of the religious. As we know, we DO NOT hate xtians or muslims. We just do not 'live with g0d' or 'believe in g0d'. Most of the atheists I've read are all skeptics as well and continually tell everyone not to take their word but think-read-research make your own conclusions.
    So GRIM is projecting his own crap and the statement should read....
    Plausible scenario: Ignorant person or small group converts to (Insert dogma) and misinterprets the (myths and allegory) of (Insert Dogma) as endorsement for actions of greater magnitude than mockery and ridicule targeting (insert other dogma). Ignorant person then bombs building in an attempt to impress (dogma leaders) or to demonstrate his zealousness for the cause.
    Because any dogma does not allow thinking or reasoning. And I've also found that for the most part most radical dogmatist are not ignorant but are intelligent with a strong mind that allows their delusions to become well entrenched.

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.
