”It’s worse that that, he’s dead , Jim.” Christian Nob of the Week.

  1. So with nearly a thousand years of promises and a near monopoly in the west, how long does your religion need to achieve its objectives? I think we’ve had enough of the Jesus myth. Btw, all the translations are nearly identical, but only the believer has the keen ability to handwave the traumatic effects of faith. The key to this mystery is unbelief. The key to peace is transcending the limitations of your divisive belief.
    If this life were actually a test, it would be this; who has the integrity call religion for what it is. “Straight is the gate and narrow is the path and few there be that find it” 2.4 billion Christians isn’t “few”. Herdbound humans duped by a play on the weakness of human psychology and perception—enter religion

  2. *Again you are preaching your own beliefs – which are a weird mix of irrationally, falsehood and ignorance. Eg your bizarre belief that Christianity has had a 1000 years of monopoly in the West (although I note in passing your desire to get rid of Western civilisation). I’m afraid you’re done – unless you can come up with something a bit more coherent and rational. The Internet has enough eccentrics for you to go of and rant somewhere else. Here you are done.

     

*My bold.

Does this fatuous arse not realise that this is what he does — all the bloody time?

    1. His comment that Christians believe all humans are created equal is the perfect example of his ignorance of his own religion.
      As much as I find him to be as distasteful as they come, he also fascinates me. I have never met a Christian quite like him.
      His ground state seems to be one of anger, and he will attack any person whose view even marginally differs from his.own, and this will include fellow believers.
      You might recall his comment on an interview where he said he took pleasure grinding the faces of atheists!

        1. What context could there be, even in a joke, for a professional pastor to say he enjoys grinding the faces of (people) atheists?
          You are as much of a Dickhead as he is, JK.

          And here is the exact quote.
          Start from 4:30

          1. The context, Ark,
            is a discussion about debating and sometimes in a debate grinding a person’s argument into the ground — figuratively speaking — is what is required. (Imagine yourself up against a holocaust-denier. His argument needs to be put down and generally the person is diminished along with the argument.) The rest of the interview contains examples of I-wish-I-hadn’t-done-that moments which indicate that putting an opponent isn’t always ‘fun’ but reading an enjoyment of violent retribution into a witticism is just asking for my favorite Scouse retort: Idunnowatyeronabout! I’d have thought that giving the exact quote — which says nothing about faces — would have been enough to undermine what you have read into it.
            C.f. the furore over Phil Nevill’s tweet: “I’m back chilled – just battered the wife!!! Feel better now!” which was about a game of table tennis but could have got him sacked as England’s woman’s football coach.

          2. The context was immaterial to his use of language and his method of delivery,
            which was smug and self-swerving.
            That you would use a non-believer with a Holocaust denier is just about the most ridiculous comparison I can imagine.
            However, you are correct in that Robertson’s intent is always to put down anyone who disagrees with his version of faith, which incidentally regularly includes other Christians.
            That he would do this with such glee is demonstrative of the man’s utter lack of humility as can be witnessed on a daily basis simply by reading his pompous overblown blog.
            Yes I initially misquoted by including the word ”face”.
            If it was not my intent to correct this and include the exact quote I would not have bothered posting it and included the link and the time he said it.
            The rest of the interview is simply an extension of his arrogance. Why you regularly defend him is beyond me.
            By the way, in the opening minute or two he mentions something about a cot death and drugs. Was this a personal reference to incidents in his own past, as I could not work this out?

          3. No, Ark,
            I meant if you were faced with a holocaust-denier you’d find it necessary to put down his argument, we’d all desire to do so. I wasn’t aware that I was defending David Robertson with any sort of regularity but if I am it’s because I’ve found a niche in the depths of his comments pages that gives me the opportunity to develop my idiosyncratic way of thinking about things. Plus I appreciate his directness.
            The Cot death and drugs references will have been about the humbling things that an inner-city pastor comes across in the course of a long ministry. It’s not ivory tower.

          4. A Holocaust denier is deserving of every put down.
            Robertson’s sanctimonious evangelical Christ-babble should be regarded as child abuse and a public nuisance.

            I am sure certain medication would probably sort out your personal idiosyncrasies a lot better than the religious drivel you hang your hat on.

  1. If Christianity hasn’t held the monopoly in the West, for a thousand years or so, then why do its proponents claim that Western civilization — science, morality, art, and so on — is unthinkable without the achievements of their belief system?

  2. That’s not even the part that I find interesting. He says getting rid of Christianity is equivalent to ending western civilization whatever the hell that is. Where do you people end up meeting such idiots?

      1. Sorry , Jim.I was wondering if he censored anyone else’s comments besides mine.
        Now I know.
        I usually leave a final word replete with the language a Glaswegian drunk might use towards fans of the opposing team after his beloved Celtic were beaten 3-0 by Rangers.
        I know it will never make it out of moderation but at least I know he will see it!
        I deserve a little fun.

        1. Well, he’s a pretty big deal. I mean really, who has time for debate or decency when you’ve got a god to support? Do him and Mel really think there so high above us? I know it’s beneath him to discuss these things with non believers.

          2. I think it’s interesting faith has an educated man unable to comprehend (we make no sense) or connect some simple dots to follow a line of thinking. First of all I think he’s just lying, but, but belief has hijacked his brain and his wallet now fuels his disingenuity. Go to, thy faith has made you a-hole. I just received a long dissertation about my beliefs again from another drive by commentor. The concept of unbelief is incomprehensible to them. Now I’ve learned that my skepticism is a belief system.

          3. The way he touts his ”education” suggests humility was not on the curriculum.
            He lists debating as one of his activities/hobbies.
            He probably thinks it is simply an extension of his sermons – telling the Dicks in the pews what to do.
            The drive-byes will soon become the majority until you are pummeled into submission and admit what a worthless piece of God-Hating Panamanian Poo you know you really are.
            Besides, allowing all the other Proper Christians to berate you allows the Pastor more time in the loo with his dog-eared Hustler mags.

          4. Here is my comment to James, although I don’t “believe” David will post it.
            Don’t you ever get tired of being suckered? Humans will believe anything—attach a couple of promises to a self deprecating dogma and you get a story that won’t die.
            I think we both know what belief we’re talking about and the temporary usefulness of it. Christianity has taken a principle intended as a transitory function and turned it into the pinnacle of existence. Merely believing is rewarded as a virtue, when in reality is holds no substance at all.
            Religious belief puts the world on equal footing—divisive and prideful in nature allowing one to accolades without intellect. From the beginning of its wordplay on the human psyche, it has done nothing but extend empty promises as a virtue, and here we are, 2000 years of infighting over what “we believe”. It has yet to meet a single objective. For a thousand years people were converted at the point of a sword. Thank the lord secular law has declawed faith in god for the meantime. But total world domination is still the doctrine”.

          I suspect he thinks he is doing ”God’s (sic) work” when he engages in the manner he does. He probably hugs himself and smiles, too.

  3. If you want coherent and rational, I can deliver in the form of a simple statement—words to the effect that “Contradictions are impossible. They cannot exist … all that can exist to give the appearance of a contradiction is a false premise (or several).”

    Given that, is it possible to see an apparent contradiction in (say) god’s omnipotence, His infinite love and compassion, and the viciousness of the world He created (given His omniscience)?
