A reminder of the potential stupidity of theism...The tinfoilhatters
You know... Being in Vancouver a very liberal religiously loose and diverse city, sometime I forget the reality that these nutbar barrel bottom theists are all around, even hear, you just rarely see them in action... lol. A firend just had a conversation they had to bounce of me knowing I'd have some juice on the topic. This guy was hitting her withwith the "dinosaurs never existed" ninkumpoopery and "no animal has ever went extinc ever" and ofcourse "fossils are fake, created by the scientists who are in cahoots to disprove god,." She's the type to not even give religious fluff any thought cuz shes had no real experience with the effects of religious nonsense, and its all so obvious to her its just tinfoilhattery she doesnt consider it much of an issue. But she had to ask what I thought about his claims. I cracked her up tearing it all apart, but still, she just like many had many misunderstanding about fossils/evolution/time etc... Just enough uncertanty that this guy was able to run his upsurd game on those in the conversation, n it just makes me so fustrated they get away with this crap most of the time n go back to their tinfoilhat jesus camps and insult the lifes work of palentologists dirty and sweaty in the field as we speak while they pat eachother on their back for their ignorance and sing more songs to invisible friends. Sometimes it just slaps me in the face a little reminding me how widespread and bold these lunatics are, how many hands they have in things in my life, and how easily they spit on the scientific method without much resistance and continue on to the next group puking out more verbal garbage. I don't even know what to say to these types, theirs so much wrong with their position, its like bullshit overload:
1)-Most species who have ever lived have gone extinct moron, piles of em just recently we've witnessed and recorded, new ones everyday.
2)-Fossils found are so numerable, one dino claw collection alone fills a gymnasium with small tupperwear containers, thats just 1
3)-How could all in the field possibly be and keptin cahoots to insult the very scientific method they are bound by, and keep in cahoots the seas of new researchers gradutaing everyday getting their hands dirty in the field making their own discoveries?
4)-Fossil finds are not just for scientists, anyone with a shovel can and many have found all kinds of this stuff, even in their own backyard...
5)-WTF is the reason behind a researcher and all in the field for that matter spending their entire career hoaxing and lying about fake fossils,a nd how has no one (from your tinfoil hat camp for example) been able to expose them?
6)-How dare you consider your tinfoilhat group atall relevant enough that scientists would actually put effort into disproving it as if they give a shit about your holybook while they brush of the skull of a never before seen species of dinosaur (wait a hoax skull ofcourse lol), it's fricken rediculous you nutbar.
6)-What the heck does the existence of dinosaurs or evolution have to do with a possible creator of the universe? It only rains on your silly creation myths parade you defend so emotionally, a creator could have very well designed evolution into the game as a way of creating live so unpredictable and diverse even he couldn't predict all the exact resulting species. And what more clever possibility I find...to set in motion a natural process that results in diverse life even the creator wasn't able to fully predict giving his creation some mystery even to him.
And on and on we could all go... But it doesnt matter, you could reason all of this with him, tomorow as sure as dawn, he'll be back at his tinfoil hat camp high-fiving other religitards about their understanding of the great secret conspiracy that threatens tinfoilhat tuesdays...lol What to do? should we just hit him with a frying pan or something? It's so gear grinding, dammit, ahhhhhhhhhhhh!
