Bob the Troll
It looks like I am going to have to expand this from simply NewEnglandBob to other trolls as well. Who are of course welcome to defend themselves, but seem to either be unable or unwilling to come and do so. I assume it has something to do with the fact that when their comments are shown by themselves, they are particularly ugly and mean spirited looking. Getting to the point…
Well, TruthOverFaith to the Bob the Troll series. As you know, a NewEnglandBob often exhibits itself in a flurry of comments with no thought, no content and mostly attacks directed at other commenter with whom it disagrees but it is unable to articulate why in any form that humans would recognize. TruthOverFaith appears to be doing the same thing. Long lost brothers perhaps? Father and son (love child maybe, I think “truth” is younger).
As typical of both liberal trolls, they don’t seem to either want to stay on topic or on related sidebars, but go off in a direction that has nothing to do with the subject at hand. I am guilty of getting off on sidebars, but at least you can draw a line between the subject and what I ramble on about. Here is another:
When unable to articulate response yourself, congratulate others on what you cannot do, and attack the blogger. It’s amazing that TOF (TruthOverFaith) is still among the living. One would think natural selection would have culled this mental weakling from the herd by now.
Umm, maybe your incoherent Jesus brain can’t question the “efficacy” of servile Stone Age garbage foisted upon impoverished peasants, but those of us free from the reason-draining effects of religious lunacy are quite capable of doing so.
Do I need to go any further than pointing out that some of the greatest scientists and thinkers ever have been devoutly religious? That doesn’t prove the validity of religion, but it certainly tends to counter the fact that having religion makes one superior in the sense of one’s intelligence. As this atheist clearly demonstrates by it’s commenting. Again, It would surprise me to learn it can walk and talk at the same time. Last one for now:
Even most atheists realize that without the religions we have had and the influence they had we would not be who we are today. Indeed, one of the reasons humans started clinging together in bigger groups may have been religion. There is no way to know why we settled down and grouped in ever larger concentrations, but it is a solid theory. If true it could mean we would still be living in caves and clubing each other with mammoth bones. It is perfectally solid logic to say: “if not for our past we would not be who we are today.” A second grader can tell you that if we had the ability to change the past the present would be very different, but TOF doesn’t seem to be able to. It’s possible that he ever made it out of first grade. Likely because instead of learning he just called the teacher names whenever she said anything.
In closing I would just like to say to TOF, Shut the hell up. I’m sure Jack would be pleased to have your opposing view points on his blog, but what you are doing now makes you look like an idiot and undermines the positions you champion. Grow up and make some contributions or shut your hole.
