As I have reported on TWeb lately, I’ve discovered an amazing thing: Many atheists on YouTube are exceptionally stupid.
No, I’m not exaggerating. I had a pretty good sample after one of them drew notice to, and responded to, one of my vids, and his troll collection bounded on over to mine to pick their nostrils in the forum.
These guys are pretty amazing. They’ve invented entirely new spellings for common words: “hypocracy,” “courtious,” “waist” (as in, “don’t waist my time”), and so on. They’re also dense as bricks on just about everything else. Here’s what one poor soul did, commenting on the fact that I was proposing a reading of the text that was disagreed on by the vast majority of translations:
Your research must be ground breaking if you are going to overthrow hundreds of combined years of textual reviews.
Indeed so. But a moment later, this same poor, benighted soul said:
Forget the "Golden Rule"? Jesus saw the value of being nice even when others weren't; though he co-opted that rule from Buddhism. Perhaps you haven't read your bible well enough....tough principle to miss.
On the one hand, I'm told, "Your research must be ground breaking if you are going to overthrow hundreds of combined years of textual reviews."
Then on the other hand, this fruitcake belts out, "[Jesus] co-opted that rule from Buddhism," a stance that would make nearly all NT scholars wet their pants with laughter.
Funny – I guess you’re only allowed to be a “freethinker” when you disagree with the other point of view.
