All the fun of thinking like a fundy.

Adrian Barnett has taken the time to help everyone check their brain at the door by thinking like a fundy. With our thoughts we make the world so let's make the world fundy dumb fun.

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

A leader guide was issued by the producers of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. RationalWiki has (without invitation) taken up a right of reply.

If the next world matters more than this world why don't they just leave me alone? If they babble on to their magic friends they will go to heaven. Just do it an leave me alone. If boring, dark-age know-it-alls like the theists I know will be there, it'll make it as shit house as you made this world during the dark ages.


Debating Creationists

This is difficult because rational debate is not on the menu. What is on the menu is bullying and one-up-manship. For me, essentially, this is a pointless exercise. I would have to care enough to even start. However, when I am labelled as bad because I don't beleive in a theist's magic friend I am pleased to rise to the challenge. I've never made any progress but I will not be brow beaten by a dark age level mind.

Talking Origins and Discord give some hints.

The Freethinker

The Freethinker is doing the same job as BARF but in the UK. Holding a mirror up to theist nonsense.


Biblical America Resistance Front are helping to keep the United States of America secular. It would be very worrying if the greatest military machine the world has ever seen fell into the hands of a death cult... that just couldn't end well.

Retrofitting the Ark

These fruit loop fundies have really put a lot of imagination into explaining how Kangaroos got from Australia to get onto the ark then got all the way back without a trace. Amazing... stupid but amazing. This is typical of fundies. Their fairy tale just has to be right. Why can't they just say, "We don't have a fucking clue, we just want to believe this shit" like any normal person who knows they are talking absolute crap.

Helena Cronin's

"Science doesn't have ideological implications; it simply tells you how the world is — not how it ought to be."

A rave!

The thing that makes Intelligent Design pseudo-science is the lack of peer review. When they allow peer review most scientists reject their claims out of hand. In particular they want the supernatural intervention to be accepted by science. Supernatural intervention is the opposite of science. Intelligent design cannot be tested, it cannot predict anything and it doesn't try to prove anything. It just is and doesn't want to answer questions.

So, lets draw an parallel. Say the ID proponents get this concept on its feet. In this world all science has to accept that supernatural intervention is equally valid as established scientific theory. Now, we sent our friendly local fundamental christian to the doctor because he is bleeding out of his arse.

Does the fundy ask the doctor to pray in tongue for god to reveal the illness to the doctor or does the fundy want some scientifically valid tests done? Does he want to be admitted to hospital or sent to a church to be prayed for? Say we have a diagnosis of acute bowel cancer. Would the fundy want a six month course of intensive prayer or an operation and chemo.

What am I trying to say here? Do I have a point? Can I get to my point?

My point is that your bog-standard fundy talks the talk about supernatural intervention being equally as valid as scientific theory but they would not accept the doctor's prescription of 'medical prayer' that would be scientifically proven under ID.

Say the fundy died while being treated by prescribed prayer. Do you suppose that their family would seek compensation from the doctor's malpractice?

Why are they at the doctor's surgery at all? Isn't cancer a shortcut to heaven! When you're life is on the line you are talking the talk but definately not walking the walk.

Now I don't want fundies to all go and die. I just want seperation of faith and science. The last time faith had precident over scientific endeavour it was called a dark age. I don't want another dark age. The last one cost us 600 years of developement.
