Sikh Temple shooting in suburban Wissconsin 6 dead.

The shooter was allegedly a white supremacy right wing nut. Glad they killed him in any case.

  Too bad the nut job

  Too bad the nut job didn't attack some armed religious group like the Branch Davidians.  He would have been shot to pieces ...just like this submachine gun carrying ATF agent was... as soon as he started firing.

This is most assuredly one topic we are not in dispute on.

Unfortunately, that same conspiracy theory nutcase co-worker that I posted about that thinks the FBI was behind Aurora, Colorado, is already yammering about this being another shadowy government plot to ensure more gun control. Supposedly, he has "irrefutable evidence" (which he strangely can not provide outside of a few lunatic websites) that there were several shooters present and a whole host of "mysterious" circumstances behind this.

I REALLY need a set of earplugs on the job or need to drop some anti-psych meds in this dude's coffee.

What an idiot. I dislike people who do these types of things. You should really tell your boss or whatever that he is bothering you. Although he'll probably decide that you are part of the conspiracy and trying to suppress his amazing insights into the evil workings of the Government.

I am afraid to ask Smiling

On a serious note, I do remember him referencing how the Russians were ahead of us in the space race and something to do with the moon, but I didn't inquire.

The thing that pisses me off the most about him, is he speaks from this HIGH position like he is some sort of HUGE authority and all the rest of us are stupid.

Typical conversation example :

Him : You saw the third building at 9/11 fall right ?

Co-worker : Well, yeah

Him : Now, didn't it ever occur to you that it was odd that building was not hit by a plane and yet imploded on the inside ? ( smug look on his face)

Co-Worker : Well, um, no, I um uh never thought about that.

Him : Watch the footage really carefully and you'll see that it could not have come down without an inside rigging ? What does that tell you ? Do you follow me, are you finally starting to get where I am coming from ?

(That's the line that pisses me off the most for some reason, ever conspiracy theory argument has to end with : "Do you follow me, are you finally starting to get where I am coming from ?" Like we are all so obtuse that we can't get it).

I go out of my way to ignore

I go out of my way to ignore people like that in a professional environment.  If they keep yammering on about some idiocy or other, I usually just change the subject or tell them I like philosophy.  That's usually a conversation killer with those types.  

I love those individuals at parties or social gatherings.  They're fun.

Yeah, it does indicate that there is probably no hope of him applying critical thinking.

A relative of mine recently asserted the old 'the pyramids were built by aliens' bunkum. I considered arguing the case against, but ennui took over.

It's like fighting a hydra.

I just can't stand people like that. King of reminds me of some theists. This annoying talking-down to you and talking past your arguments.

I don't understand why

I don't understand why theists like these Sikhs aren't happy to see a gunman coming to temple. They supposedly believe they are going to some kind of paradise for their great moral lives and the gunman is going for torture. So why were they all hiding in fear for their lives?

Perhaps their delusional state of mind is just as nutty as the gunmans'.
