I don’t know how to express what this feels like. How do I properly relate to you what it feels like to have one’s soul eaten by a stupid, but let me tell you it’s NOT FUCKING PLEASANT!!! I can’t rant fast enough to truely express how I feel. Every time I make the mistake of coming to this forum to talk about stuff I inevitably get sucked into some mind-numbing debate full of logical fallacies extolling the virtues of “SCIENCE!!!”*
I especially love it when the intellect devouring demons of the abyss complain about the stupidity of a religious person, and move into tirade about the “facts” regarding the existence of God.
Here is the thread in particular that has mired me in the putrescence of the dumb. Science is screwing up the battle for America’s minds. In this thread DSeid shows us a world where there are ignorant hicks who prefer God to Darwin. But not only do they exist but they’re MULTIPLYING AND THE ONLY WAY TO KILL THEM IS BY SHOOTING THEM IN THE HEAD!!! I learned that science has no voice in modern day America. I discovered how ignorant that my thinking a computer in every home and trillions of dollars spent on scientific research somehow equated to scientists “having a voice”. Somehow I harbored the delusion that every time a court or a journalist brought in their “expert scientist” to explain the facts to us, that this was giving scientists a voice. Not according to this Gallup Poll
Now I know that I was dead wrong. For every scientist whose research is quoted in an article in a publication that reaches a million people, there are at least five people refuting it over a frappucino. Oh what a horrible state of affairs we are in! I pine for the days when society was less ignorant, when science ruled the day. Oh to live in such a free reasoning society as Malcolm X and Joseph McCarthy!
Hopefully someone will hear my pleas before the stupids finish consuming my soul, in the meantime, I must brush up on my idiot so that I won’t be without the lingua franca in the land of Imbessil.
*Pronounced as a mad scientist would exclaim it, this star denotes a delineation between SCIENCE!!! the religion and science dealing with the study of the material world.
** Note to self, I doubt that 1/3 of Americans have even read the bible word for word.
