This is Painful

PZ Myers and JT Eberhard confront a few Ray Comfort supporters with predictable results. Despite how hard this is to watch (you’ll feel like screaming at the screen, no doubt), it’s still good practice to see just how hard these people struggle to maintain their pathetic talking points.

    these people are so unsettling it scares me… arguing with these people is like arguing with someone who never mentally grew up (which I’m convinced is the case). “faith” is so quick to tell people they are worthless evil shells of humans (which is what the word sin ALWAYS means), and there are some sins in the bible that have nothing to do with morality or something as simple as disagreeing with it.
    As far as I’m concerned if you don’t know what you are talking about, then you shouldn’t be taken as seriously as if you were. end of story

    That woman was stumped. She had no answer at all and was trying to find the first door out of her tautology. I find it hilarious how many theists think they’ve got the whole skepticism thing down and can catch someone who knows better off guard.

    The guy talking to PZ is a perfect example of that sort of “skepticism”, which is nothing more than their puffing their chests up. When the guy asked “Why is that?” with a blank stare, a question so broad as to be nearly impossible to answer soundly in anything approaching a lifetime, you know that they think immediate canned retorts is all they can come up with. I can ask anyone “why is that?” 15 times in a row, but it doesn’t make me a skeptic, it makes me a tiresome dumbass who needs to get educated.

    The somewhat ugly angle to this is that a few Christians are “protesting” Skepticon. Why do they feel it is necessary to do this? Is there some political grievance? This to me smacks of churches silently taking license from the WBC’s tactics to “protest” nearly anything remotely related to something they disagree with. What if they start doing this in college classrooms?
