They are at it again

Gnu atheists like to brag about their superior reasoning skills and their strict adherence to the evidence.  Yet despite such posturing, they can never seem to agree on anything apart from their hatred of religion. In the latest demonstration of this, we have Michael Shermer and PZ Myers throwing feces at each other.  Here is how PZ Myers tells it in a 12/21/12 blog entry entitled, “An experiment: why do you despise feminism?”

Michael Shermer is feeling victimized, and is now seeing persecutors under the bed, I think. He posted a complaint about Ophelia writing a post that discussed subliminal biases. It’s a bizarre and paranoid whine — apparently you’re not ever supposed to criticize a skeptic, or you’re carrying out a witch hunt……As for my terrible, awful, evil comment: I pointed out that Shermer isn’t exactly a baritone himself. That wasn’t an accusation or an insult; I don’t have a deep voice, either. My point was that you don’t have to have a voice like a foghorn to be a leader.

It’s a truly delusional state he’s worked himself into, and now he’s seeing witch hunts with himself as the target everywhere he looks (probably abetted by those slime pit denizens who see every cross-eyed look and every criticism as a sign that someone is about to get shivved by the all-powerful FtB mafia, and flood twitter and blog comments with such knee-jerk reactions). It’s a shame.

It would seem that if only you dumb religious rubes would get with the program and admit the intellectual superiority of Gnu atheism, you too could get in a feces flinging contest about the tone of someone’s voice!  Smell the enlightenment!  Of course, this should not surprise anyone, as the Gnu’s are known for making rape threats and going through purges because of some disagreement about coffee and an elevator.

And don’t forget you can always count on PZ’s comment section for some moment of hilarity:

philisyssis This makes me think of the southpark episode where they go into the future and religion is all gone. So what’s causing all the wars in that era? Different atheist factions….oh the wisdom of southpark.

PZ Myers: philisyssis: SHUT UP. If you show up again in this thread and derail it further you will be banned. DO NOT POST HERE AGAIN.

 

Er, did PZ Myers just type in……ALL CAPS?

    YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT I AM!

  2. Don’t be fooled by old man Myers, in the scope of things he means very little. The majority of atheists don’t know who he is, nor do they care. Besides it isn’t an “atheist war’ no one is arguing over the non belief in god. The struggle is over skepticism and who is being skeptical. At least get the reason for your post correct, at least try. Thanks

    In the Cult of Gnu, Myers is very well known. At the “Reason” Rally, he was a speaker. In 2009 he was named Humanist of the Year, International Humanist Award of 2011, among others.

    Let’s not pretend he’s some nobody.

    Mike made it very clear just what he was commenting on in the post. Not very hard to follow.
