This is merely a quick heads up to anyone that thinks Citizen Tom has any intellectual integrity at all. He does not.
He recently blogged (click here to check it out- before he deletes it) about one of my recent blogs, and drooled enough bullshit to cover Chicago. One of his claims was that atheists that think we can scientifically test for god are just dumb idiots because god isn’t a physical person, but a philosophical problem.
“But wait!”, literally everyone that uses their brain is jumping up and down saying right now, “doesn’t their god interact with the physical world?”
Yes, literally everyone that uses your brains. Christians DO claim their god interacts with our physical world. It’s almost as if Citizen Tom took his brain out of his head, electrocuted what was left in his skull, poured bleach into his head-hole and rinsed a while, and then decided to try and answer a question about the existence of god. And his answer pretty clearly forgets to think about the very thing they claim their god can do, which is do stuff here, in the real, physical world.
Naturally, when I merely asked this singular question, “does your god interact with our physical world”, a question by which under any other context he would be jumping at his feet telling me about how powerful and helpful their god is, suddenly he becomes paralyzed with wonder about if I “sincerely” want to learn. His buddy-in-brainlessnes Silence of the Mind jumps in to further tell me that not only is my question stupid, but that I have a cartoonish understanding of their god.
Look, if you spend every hour of your day seriously preaching to people that cars work by jumping in, yelling “yaba daba doo”, and then flipping your feet super quick, people will have a cartoonish view of how cars work. And if you say your god makes things change in the physical world, but doesn’t do anything in the physical world, then people will have a cartoonish view of your god. If you can’t explain the no-shit details, then you are explaining it like a cartoon.
But here is the reason I’m writing this post- Citizen Tom has just demonstrated that he is willing to speak WITH AUTHORITY on subjects for which he has not yet even put a single bit of thought into. I completely stumped him with the first question. The very first, most obvious question about his understanding of his god just sunk his entire premise. This brainless buffoonery isn’t unique to Citizen Tom. No, it is the entire lot of apologists, preachers, and defenders of the faith that yell loudly and think sparingly.
Brainless idiots that pretend to be experts should never be followed. To be honest, nobody should follow me either, I’m just some dude with a blog. But I answer questions. I think through the problems. I explain the mechanisms. I respond to every objection. I resolve the issues.
Religion is a cover up for sheer stupidity, and Citizen Tom is their mascot.
