Tha’s a tough one. After some (well, a minute’s worth) thought, it’s a tie between a scheme for ‘fixing’ the hole in the ozone layer, using pollutant ground-level ozone, and the idea that the first human baby needed a human mother, therefore God, or summat like that. That’s just ones I’ve personally come across—I’m guessing you don’t mean stuff like crocoducks that we’ve all heard of at third or fourth hand.
Then there are those who just don’t see the irony.
Here is our good friend Bob Hutton suggesting that those who wish to prevent Christians from persecuting The Gays are behaving like Nazi’s. He just can’t get it into his tiny mind that the Nazi’s were Christians who persecuted gays!
By the Lord Harry I’d forgotten that one. He squirmed around on your question like an eel on acid, and completely wimped out on mine, at the same time as completely missing the obvious conclusion of my point. Damnit, why did I leave it where I did?
I used to feel the irresistable urge to correct but after doing so much of it I find that now I can’t be bothered. I mainly frequent science and freethought blogs where the comment sections are mainly inhabited by sane people so if someone says something stupid, others often get their corrections in ahead of me. That means that the daft ones are on other sites that I have found by following a link. These other blogs and sites often require registering before you can comment and the complexity of the proceedure varies. Not only that, if you have commented before you have to enter a user name and password, I use the same ones all the time but sometimes they are not recognised and when I try to register again the system tells me that my username and password are already in use. The upshot of all this is that I think that it isn’t worth the hassle. Oh, and don’t get me started on those wibbly-wobbly capcha codes.
I have to admit I was sorely tempted recently by someone who was claiming that Christianity was proven true by Christ’s amazing fulfillment of Old Testament prophesies. In fact, the fraudulent nature of the Apostles’ claims regarding OT prophesies is irrefutable proof that Christianity is false. No-one has to take my word for it, you only need to read these alleged prophesies in their original context to know that the NT writers were taking the piss.
Not at all, I’m glad someone enjoys doing it – if only so it means the less-inclined among us don’t have to. Besides, although you and Remigius are unlikely to make much of a dent in the beliefs of someone like Dean Roberts (as in the “If you could ask God one question” link above) your postings will be there for all to see, and who knows how many might read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them.
