You friggin' cowards

I can't believe I'm making another Elevatorgate post, but this simply can't be ignored. In my last blog about it, I briefly touched on Richard Dawkins being a bit of an idiot in response to Rebecca's vlog. She fired back and said she'd never purchase his books again. Then there was radio silence. This doesn't seem like the kind of knock-down drag out fight that these folks are suggesting. Nor is the analogy to child abuse AT ALL APPROPRIATE.

What really takes the cake is that it appears they're not allowing people to comment on this post. I attempted (and was surprised that no one else had yet commented (firsties!), but my comment seems to be stuck in moderation-limbo.

My comment was:


"Two leading skeptics arguing on the internet is not at all comparable to child abuse. Quite frankly, the comparison is rather offensive to both abused children and members of the secular community. Rebecca and Richard fighting does not effect me. I am a grown up, and this is the internet. I'm perfectly capable of being an atheist and blogging about it regardless of how other skeptics get along."


I imagine everyone else who tried to comment had similar thoughts.

As I said in my last blog, the atheist community is insane.


But so much fun!!

  1. I like how the poster doesn't take their own advice and bring up his problems directly with Watson & Dawkins.

  2. Madskutter,
    Of course! They were the first to be tweeted, emailed and youtubed about the open letter.
    They responded with a resounding silence.

    Dear Snarky:
    I just replied to your last swearing on the blog here it is:

    Oh more swearing, in case you missed it a few skeptvisitors had problems with their own Jihadi-like impulse control.
    As it was to be expected after their own self detonation someone took their charred reasoning to parody town, here:
    Oh! I am offended! Gallery.

  6. Not that this wonderful person is likely to allow it through (since comments have been cut off for the last few days), but I submitted the following:

    Holy crap you are hilarious!

    I made ONE comment, on a DIFFERENT blog, simply pointing out the irony of your choice to PUBLICLY air your grievance (which is that Watson and Dawkins PUBLICLY aired their grievances). You on the other hand, must have spent considerably more time making "rage comics" about how I'm a "skeptojihadi".

    And yet somehow, in your twisted little mind, I am the one "who got too angry and self-detonated"?

  7. Oh! Nah! that was quick, I use pshop templates. Coming up with bat-shit dumbness like you and vnectar…pfft I can’t do that, that is why you are pure gold.
    I can definitely say stupid things but comparing me to you sheer condensed goopy, atheist, paradoxical, toddler babble is like comparing green tea to a triple espresso.
    Once the person joins another skeptojihadi (I am looking at you vnectar), they cannot be taken seriously & I have the moral obligation of taking them to parody town.
    Make sure you check the whole galley!

    Bo-ho, my break is over, gotta go back to work, I leave you with two quotes from a woman that endured constant hostility and succeeded. Both of them apply to your messages.

    “I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.”
    Margaret Thatcher

    “Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and importance, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.”
    Margaret Thatcher

  8. Oh I saw it!
    Yes this wonderful person is likely to allow it through just because your goopy toodler bable with 2 teeth coming out from their itchy gums just can't be serious and I am sure you are master trolls or creationists. You guys are pure gold.

    I knew I was "wunderful" even before you and the Aussie Tigger told me.
