Remember the days of Project Apollo? The boys and girls at the Cape would put the Saturn V stack together in this big-ass barn called the Vehicle Assembly Building. Then they’d stick it on this bigger-ass tractor called the Crawler Transporter to take it to Pad 39-B.
As soon as the V peeked outside that barn, everybody gasped. Holy shit! Will you look at that thing? It was really pretty frightening.
I’m pretty sure that’s the way LeGrande L’Orange and the Cult will feel tonight when the Jan. 6 Committee rolls out the facts. At least the ones who have the balls to confront the facts.
If you are secure in your religious beliefs (and I hope you are), why are you obsessed with imposing them on others?
Why not just walk through your own life as a man or woman of universal good will?
Your arrogant dogma is off-putting to say the least. You want to portray yourselves as humble servants. In fact, you are narcissistic, insecure autocrats.
It’s not just arrogant. It is intellectually vacuous.
Why do you desire to control others to validate your beliefs?
The following is more about logic than theology.
“How do you know everything in the Bible is infallible?”
“BECAUSE IT SAYS SO IN THE BIBLE! “
Uhhh…do you see a problem here?
Written by humans (men). Very selectively compiled and edited by men. Translated thousands of times by men. Misrepresented by men. Cynically taken out of context by men. Politically co-opted by men. Wildly inconsistent and contradictory. Opportunistically manipulated.
But it’s infallible, right? Why? Because it says in your Bible that the Bible is infallible. Uhh…
Yet you won’t believe your own eyes when it comes to the attempted overthrow of the United States government. And your gun is clearly your true divinity.
Go back through religious and philosophical history. Thousands of towering intellects (and about as many morons, too) have written hundreds of millions of pages attempting to prove the existence of (their version of) God and assert the infallibility of (their version of) the Bible.
The arguments appear to be morally compelling and intellectually “deep.” But then you realize the authors are contorting logic and jumping through more hoops than an Airedale Terrier at the Westminster Dog Show.
Ultimately, after all of the loftiness, it finally comes down to this, in every case.
How can you prove God exists?
“BECAUSE HE DOES, ALL RIGHT!!! BECAUSE I SAID SO.”
This, inevitably, from some of the greatest minds in human history.
Asserting certainty about that which is definitionally uncertain is moral failure and intellectual dishonesty.
Let’s talk more about books. I like books. I got lotsa books. For example, one of my favorites is titled “Crochet Made Easy.”
But I don’t go around 24-7-365 telling every human being I have even a chance encounter with that they are going to burn in hell if they don’t accept every word of Crochet Made Easy as the literal word of God.
I don’t dislike you for your beliefs. I don’t dislike you at all.
But know this. You are a drag. I mean, you are a DRAG! You never saw a party you couldn’t poop. I mean, not even Sly Stone could get you to loosen up.
You are not doing your “cause” any favors, either. You are about as subtle as a blindside crackback below the waist, which at some point prompts reflexive earhole retaliation.
Damn, man. Give it a rest.
Sometimes it’s just a foul ball. Sometimes it’s just a ham and cheese.
