"Clarence Darrow, Adolf Hitler, Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin, Jean Paul Sartre, and Albert Camus all seem to wither under his gaze.
Isn't it AMAZING how these brainless devotees of mythos think they are SMARTER than the smartest people in the world (and how they always manage to lump the *Catholic* Hitler in with them)? I've mentioned it elsewhere, but Einstein is under attack by these idiots, too. They think they are so goddam smart. It is hilarious.
I'm in a creative writing class with a pastor whose recent "story" wasn't a story at all but rather a screed about how the "scientist" (really engineer) in the story was bullying his "curious" son with pesky facts when the kid wanted to find god. The message was that the "science" person was a close-minded asshole and that the true intellect in the story was the kid who kept asking questions. Hello! Irony detector broken! Needless to say, the "story" which was really just a dialogue that took place in a car (with no other plot, drama, conflict and other components that make, you know, a STORY) was completely skewered by the class. Plus it just pissed off a few of us. One comment I made was that I'm an adult with my own thoughts and beliefs and that good fiction neither preaches to me nor tries to conveniently use fiction to lecture to me.
Seriously, I'm becoming more and more convinced of the utter stupidity combined with absolute arrogance (Dunning-Kruger effect) that abounds in the vast majority of the "leaders" of the varying "faith" communities, especially that precious "solo scriptura" bunch. These people are f*cking unbelievable to me. They are actually *serious* when they critique a bunch of stuff THEY'VE NEVER ACTUALLY READ. How stupid do you have to be to think that you can be taken seriously when you critique stuff YOU'VE NEVER ACTUALLY READ???????????? I mean, really, has the author of this silly book actually READ and critically analyzed Marx or Sartre or Camus?? How about read them in their original languages so as to glean meaning not apparent in the English translation which fails to capture many of the double entendres (especially Sartre and Camus)? No? Well, then I guess he needs to seriously STFU.
Ok. Rant over. For now.
So....... how bout them Cowboys??? :D
