A Synonym for Bullshit: "Faith"
I came across a hilarious new meme at the Richard Dawkins Foundation discussion forum. Credit goes to a poster known as SteveC.
"Faith is a synonym for bullshit."
Don't believe me? Consider the following, but replace "faith" with "bullshit."
He was a man of great faith
he believed it on faith.
he preached a message of faith.
Faith based initiatives.
Faith is the enemy of reason
It was a matter of faith.
So, if faith is a synonym for bullshit... why shouldn't we use the word faith when we mean bullshit? Just TAKE the word away from the doofuses.
I'm not kidding. If someone is pulling your leg, just say, "Stop talking faith, man."
Oh, man, I stepped in some faith! Now I've got to clean my faithy shoes!
Bush comes on the TV spouting some nonsense? You say to the TV, "What a load of faith! Get off my TV, you moron!"
"Politicians are so full of faith!"
I'm sure you can think of more, and I'm serious about this, I faith you not.
