The Stupid! It Burns! (Larry the Cable Guy edition)

the stupid! it burns! Larry the Barefoot Bum Calls Me Stupid. Sort of. [Link Fixed] Sort of? I really, actually, completely call him — well, his post, but close enough — really, actually, completely stupid. Kinda what the whole series is about.

In his retort, he says,
I didn’t care then, but recently came upon [this TSIB post] and thought, the nerve of this Larry the Cable Guy character. I don’t suppose he’s calling me stupid. [Yes, I was. -LTBB] That would be original. Instead he goes for the atheist standby of calling all Christians stupid. . . . It’s all any atheist has: “Show me God” and calling you stupid. I don’t know who Larry the Cucumber is or why he goes by the hideous name “Barefoot Bum.” Is he daring any Christian to wash his horrendous hooves? I don’t get it. Larry the Laughing Thalidomide Baby would be a better moniker than “Barefoot Bum.” . . . “There is no God. And I hate Him!” is the atheist creed. It’s really a case of the lady dost protesting too much, methinks.

Amazingly enough, it gets funnier. Read the rest.


  1. That post only deserves one word: Hilarious.

  2. Hmm. For a post like that to be hilarious it needs to hit a kind of sweet spot of stupid. But there was far too much stupid for that. It was more painful than hilarious IMO. I guess it really does burn.

  3. Oh, you poor, poor atheists. So blind and stupid, yet so smug.

  4. "The atheist can't find God for the same reason that a thief can't find a police officer."

    "Atheists express their rage against God although in their view He does not exist."

    - C.S. Lewis

    "If God were small enough to be understood, He would not be big enough to be worshiped."

    - Evelyn Underhill

    "Out of 100 men, one will read the Bible, the other 99 will read the Christian."

    - D.L. Moody

    "Atheism is a crutch for those who cannot bear the reality of God." - Tom Stoppard

  5. Anything written by an Xtian is gonna be stupid.

    I went to a church to make a lunch date with God. The bastard never showed up. Ergo, there is no God.

  6. Are Xtians stupid? Really guys you all have to let up a little, xtians have been known to be able to be potty trained, and have been taught to wear matching socks, so it aint fair to call them stupid.

    But they are delusional, which is actually much worse then stupid. Being delusional means that you hare intelligent and smart enough to force yourself to drop to such a low level as to make stupid look smart. DELUSIONAL is the ACTIVE process of throwing out your intelligence to a point that you can maintain a fairy tale as true fact. So that aint stupid as you have to be smart enough to produce a delusion.


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.
