I wear my ignorance like a badge!

It's our faith they need to see --- not our knowledge.

I thought AV was a poe.

That's AV for ya. He lives in a land where reason is treason.

Either Poe, or just as the title says, sums up fundies well

The problem is that, AV1611 is taking Jesus's advice to be like children literally. His ignorance and stupidity is childlike, and he's proud of it.

I love this guy! He just cuts through all the crap and admits what Christianity is really about- and is perfectly happy with it. Fundie in a nutshell indeed.

For argument's sake, let's suppose your god exists and takes an interest in the comings and goings of Humanity; do you really think he/she/they/it would be at all impressed by your refusal to use the brains they gave you? To waste the time you've been gifted by wallowing in stupidity? I can think of few things more likely to provoke disapproval and punishment than wilful and premeditated ignorance.

You shame your god and yourself.

Okay, I can accept this. This is the kind of guy who probably wouldn't enter into a heated discussion with their Perpetual Fallacy Machine running on full power, simply because thinking is hard. He's like the mascot of fundies, it's almost cute.

And they wonder why atheism is on the rise...

No worries there, dude.

@Max W,

Childish, not childlike. There's a difference.

Either this is a Poe, or it explains A LOT.

5/18/2009 12:56:24 PM


Yeah, like when the devil dared Jesus to throw himself from the pinnacle of the temple (Luke 4:9). Jesus said "Sure - I don't need no stinkin' brains - I have faith! Yeeehaa!" [/sarcasm]

::wipes eyes::

Oh, oh, wow, man.

And, after a noticible absence, AV1611VET makes his triumphant return to FSTDT!

Concerned Brit


You will now be kept as a curiosity, a warning for the lazier students in school as to what happens if they don't exercise their brains regularly. [/perfect world simulation]

aww... :~(

"I wear my ignorance like a badge!"

Well, one must go with one's stregnth.

"It's our faith they need to see --- not our knowledge."

Please start again, and, please, use complete sentences.

Doctor Whom

Don't worry. You're in no danger of ever showing any knowledge.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

Yes, and when you try to recruit other people into your religion, you wear your ignorance like a badger.

"It's our faith they need to see --- not our knowledge."

You're safe then, because you don't have any.

@Papabear: :" ignorance ..."

To do that He would need to have knowledge.

Old Viking

Knowledge is gained by exercising our ability to think -- the only faculty we possess that distinguishes us from other animals. This numbnuts must think it's God-given. Yet he disdains it.

5/18/2009 1:58:52 PM


Oh dear. They now even admit their ignorance.

If you were an agnostic, surely this doesn't make you go 'There might be something in Christianity'

5/18/2009 2:13:52 PM


"It not infrequently happens that something about the earth, about the sky, about other elements of this world, about the motion and rotation or even the magnitude and distances of the stars, about definite eclipses of the sun and moon, about the passage of years and seasons, about the nature of animals, of fruits, of stones, and of other such things, may be known with the greatest certainty by reasoning or by experience, even by one who is not a Christian. It is too disgraceful and ruinous, though, and greatly to be avoided, that he [the non-Christian] should hear a Christian speaking so idiotically on these matters, and as if in accord with Christian writings, that he might say that he could scarcely keep from laughing when he saw how totally in error they are. "

Augustine of Hippo, the Literal Interpretation of Genesis - on why ignorance makes a fool of Christians.

We don't need no steenkin' badges!
