Why I Ran From the Atheist Crowd

Really I’m just using this as an excuse to put something out there. And what I am posting is a response to someone on Mr. John C. Wright’s site that answered me 11 days after my comment. I thought my response good enough that I would hate to see it lost in the sands of a retired blog post. Although I had to hold back because I don’t think my interlocutor is well versed in philosophy, history, theology, science, technology, logic or common sense.

First her first parlay was in response to this post

…and she writes:

Did you ever wonder why so many new, innovative, especially high-tech things that you find helpful in your life are created by teams of people who predominantly hold views opposite to yours, and find your views generally distasteful? Go to Google campus, or Amazon, or Intel, pretty much any high-tech producer – do you think you’ll find there mostly conservative crowd? Does it make you give up computers, cell phones, internet? Perhaps the whole “conservative” thing has its downsides?

To which I responded:

Hold it. Are you saying that if you hold, for instance that marriage is between one man and one woman, or that Christ died on the cross for man’s sins, that that man will be too what? Stupid, slow, uncreative, non-innovative to work in high tech, to acheive or excel in such a field? Are you attempting to establish some sort of causal link here or are you blowing gas? And what about that exceptions? Are they the ones that manage to hide their drooling in front of the high-tech lefty hero boss-boy? Or are they, somehow, perhaps miraculously, still able to perform despite their retarded ideas?

I had honestly thought after posting this that I had actually made of error in interpreting what her meaning was. Surely, Bob, you can’t think she would mean something like that? Perhaps she is merely asking why he doesn’t quit these other marvels of modern technology since such sectors are comprised of, she says, leftist and liberals.

I leave aside the fact that just because Jeff Bezos comes out for dumb idea #42 doesn’t mean the entirety of Google is behind dumb idea #42, nor necessarily the majority.

And everyone knows, should know, that businesses and corporations are hardly the test for any sort of stand on any social issue. They follow the breeze. If a majority decided to start putting minority X into ovens for extermination, you would suddenly see a bunch of brand new manufacturers of ovens. Introducing the Google 50,000 BTU Bone-Roaster!

They are no better than politicians – and no different in this regard.

Anyway, turns out I was wrong. My interpretation of her comment was right all along. You religious, you Continue reading

Gays Win the Weimar Lottery

Imagine there is a lottery in Germany, much like our modern one back in the 1920’s/ Imagine a one Wolfdietrich von Stumm of Weimar Germany in November of 1923. After a rout of drinking and harassing some Jews, he stops by his local store to check his lottery tickets.

“Heilige Scheiße!” (Holy Shit!) this intoxicated antisemite exclaims, he has just matched all numbers from last week’s lottery.

Then he reads that what would have been his millions of Marks last week that would have bought a week’s worth of meals will now not even be enough for a downpayment on a loaf of bread. He had wondered where his wife had found the Mark-wallpaper design!

“Fick die Henne!” (Fuck the Chicken) He spits throwing the newspaper to the ground and going back to the bar.

That, in a nutshell is what gays in America got today in the Supreme Court ruling that made same sex marriages legal in all 50 states.

What used to be considered a sacrament (if only sometimes as an ideal) is now not even afforded the status of a gentlemanly handshake. Not even the force of a business contract. A large segment of the current generation skips it entirely seeing the hollow folly their predecessors made of the institution.

People can divorce for any reason whatsoever – children be damned – under the slightest whim or the faintest of pressures. Because he has found a tighter ass or bigger tits, or she a bigger dick or larger wallet, or the initial lust has worn away – whatever. And they are free to repeat this process as many times as they feel the need to.

In today’s culture of ME, marriage didn’t stand a chance. Now I never had children, but I didn’t need to to learn the first lesson of marriage, it is not about ME. And this goes roundly and doubly if you have children then it is absolutely NOT ABOUT YOU.

So diluted and meaningless is the modern institution of secular marriage we have the spectacle of the “open marriage” which is really not a marriage no matter if the modern episte allows for the exclusion of the essential in one’s definition.

People walk around having children in marriage, without the marriage at the same time, having 4 children by four different fathers (never forget I point the finger at the fathers as well).

I get astonishment when I tell people I’ve been married for 22 years. It is like I’ve achieved some sort of rare, almost unheard of feat. That used to be the norm.

So no one be shocked that marriage is now “redefined” because it has been undefined for some years now.

What did they get? It’s a pity, they didn’t get much. Some vague contract thingy that will help you in court when you divorce (maybe) get you health insurance through your partner. They’re getting something most people I know aren’t searching for and don’t care about.

It is not an achievement. They did not gain anything. What they gained was a rubble. If they had gained it 50, even 40 years ago, that may have been something (scratch the 40, that would have been 1975, too late!). They would have really achieved something if it was still viewed as sacrament.

But I’ll leave it for the reader to see why that would be impossible. Hint: the answer lies not in intolerance or even religious views, the answer lies in psychology and I left the hint in this very post. Happy hunting.

Anyway… Hurray! Good for you!
