I am so happy I have tears in my eyes. I have received my first ‘raving religious lunatic’ comment!

Ok, sure, I realise it’s probably an automated thing that picked up the link from another website I have commented on, but still, I am feeling particularly honoured.

I had every intention of writing a decent post about said comment, however, I have run out of day and since tomorrow and the day after don’t look like they will be any slower than today, the short version will have to do. I won’t publish the dude’s email address in the vain hope that he will make another comment:

the atheist sins not only against God, but also against man…

Where to start.

It never stated in it’s comments which god in particular it was referring to but somehow I doubt it was a follower of Lemminkainen. Unless it is also part of every religion, it is also ‘sinning’ against *some* god (and there are bloody hundreds)

Since there are not a whole lot of people that even follow *their* particular fantasy properly, just about every religious person is also ‘sinning’.

I’m not sure where it is going with the ‘but also against man…’ bit, I don’t break the law. Most people I know don’t either.

have you for but a moment considered that you have adopted a position against 98% of the human race, both past and present?
do you think you are RIGHT and they are all WRONG?

Well, you see, it’s like this. All humans are descended from a group of people from central Africa. They worshipped their ancestors tens of thousands of years before the invention of yahweh. Are you saying they’re wrong? Hindu’s don’t believe in the Middle-Eastern gods. There are a billion on them, are you saying they’re wrong? Buddhists don’t believe in the African ancestors, the Hindu gods or the native American spirits, are you saying they are wrong. A billion Muslims say jesus was not the son of god, are you saying they are *all* wrong? Everybody on the planet believed the earth was flat at some point. How is it possible, that you think you are right, and billions of people are wrong.

The fact is, just because a bucket load of people share a delusion doesn’t make them right. Regardless of which particular fairytale floats your boat, you are saying that billions of other people are, in fact wrong, and you are right. But you’re not.

now listen to this arrogant puffed up son of a b***h….
little scientist geek who would try to usurp God Himself!!!

I thought that was a very nice video of PZ Myers. I recommend it to everybody. No really, he’s being very nice and reasonable.

Also, being called a geek is not an insult and… ok, I’m bored.

you really need to add comment moderation to your blasphemy…

Er, yes, excellent idea. That’s why your comment is here, and not there.

Love the llama, the camelid lineage has a good fossil record.
