So I was having a tactful debate on a website with creationists and it was very orderly but just like any debate with creationist was like talking to a wall. I quoted Carl Sagan and this douchebag (I don't have a better word for him) retorted "If you could talk to Carl now he would tell you what the Christians tell you,repent and turn to Jesus because there is a Hell!" verbatim. I could only reply "oh really? well that is one of the most disrespectful things I have heard in a long time." Carl Sagan was a wonderful humanist that supported furthering ones knowledge about the universe.
(I'm going to use christians since that's what is most encountered for me)
I have noticed a strong correlation between christians and disrespectfulness. when they feel threatened they are out for blood. Their arguments can be compared with those of an 8 year old. I like to call it the "your momma" mentality. It truly shows a lack of intelligence when your only comeback is to attack a dead man because he makes you feel wrong or threatened. Things like this increase my disdain for religion ten-fold.
I'm so mad I want to grab the douche by the ears scream '"fuck you!" in his face and then headbutt him into oblivion.
FUCK! Religious people are just plain stupid as rocks, and that's giving them the benefit of the doubt.
