All Good Things…

You may have noticed, Gentle Reader, that this blog has been somewhat silent of late. Basically, critiquing the Broadstairs Buffoon, like shooting fish in a barrel, can only be fun or interesting for a while. And pulling Bob The Boy Blunder’s posts apart doesn’t even result in a fish & chips meal.

Should Bobberty ever develop a vestige of creative talent, I might take this up again, but for the nonce I shall be letting it hang.

I’d like to thank all those who’ve followed or commented here. It was fun while it lasted! Anyone who’s masochist enough to actually enjoy my inane rantings, and who doesn’t already know of it, may find my regular blog, The Dixie Flatline, equally enjoyable.

  1. I’m sorry this one and only faculty to reply to Hutton’s idiocy publicly will be no more. But thanks for having done it at all, Daz.

  2. I agree with AgentCormac that it will be sad to see this go but I understand your reasons Daz, after a while it just gets tiresome continually pointing out to deadheads like Bob where they are wrong.

  3. I will miss it but admire your stoicism and stamina for wading through so much of Bob’s inane drivel.

    I doubt he will ever change and “arguments” such as “you have been blinded by the devil” only show what a fool this guy is, it is a bit like a favourite of Ken Ham who uses the “were you there” “argument” – the last resorts of pathetically inept debaters whose personal agendas are far more important than the people they are either trolling or trying to brainwash.

  4. @Stephen Mynett & AgentCormac “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God”. What you all write on this site is verbal diarrhea. You are all dengerously deluded. Bob is a good Christian who understands perfectly what the World is like while you are unable give one solid argument that there is no God. And you shall never do it. Every inch and aspect of your daily experience brings you close to eternity. Are you immortal? Do you really want to hear this – ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels!

  5. Hi Seff. Thanks for your incredibly rational and reasoned comment. You say we atheists are ‘unable give [sic] one solid argument that there is no God.’ Of course. How can we disprove something that doesn’t exist? You and idiots like Bob Hutton are the ones asserting that a sky fairy exits: ergo, the onus is on you to offer up the proof. (Sorry if that’s inconvenient.) In the meantime, you might want to try and pick your way through this from the late, great Christopher Hitchens: ‘That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.’ I await your evidence.

  6. @AgentCormac “How can we disprove something that doesn’t exist?” On what basis you claim that God does not exist? Only because your guru Barry Duke says so or you cannot see or feel Him. That`s nonsence. You believe in UFO but you do not believe in JESUS. The overwhelming majority of people claim that God/diety exists. Actually, atheists are dying breed. You are certain and self-confident till you are strong and healthy. Then when your health deteriorates some doubts come to your mind. Rarely you are a staunch atheist on your deathbed. AgentCormac the non-existence of God can be asserted without evidence as well as can be dismissed without evidence. I look forward to your evidence for the non-existence. Do not get away with it? The existence of evil on earth is a perfect proof of the existence of supernatural evil, as it were in a form of a fallen angel. For example no human being by himself is able to come up with the idea of concentration camps. Tangible existence of supernatural evil can be easily found in haunted places as well as during exorcisms (casting out demons from haunted persons). Have you ever been present at such an event? I believe not. Stick your neck out, ask Fr. Peter Glas from the diocese of Glasgow and do not quote on and on Wikipedia.org because it is boring. Anyway before flaking out you might read up along with a sip of jolly good whisky “How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind Paperback – November 4, 2008” available on Amazon.uk

  7. On what basis you claim that God does not exist?

    I don’t claim to speak for AC, but my belief is that the class of beings known as “gods” does not exist. This belief is founded on the fact that I have been presented with no evidence that such beings exist. As to what I know: I know that no good or credible evidence in support of that existence has been presented to me, and that no reasonable argument from principle has been made to me. That’s the extremely pedantic, technically correct statement.

    The short, everyday language statement: “There is no god.”

    Only because your guru Barry Duke says so

    This site is not the freethinker site. This site is my site. Barry Duke is neither our leader nor our guru. Nor does he dictate what we may or may not think. Nor is he in any way, except as occasional commenter, affiliated with this site. In short: we agree with him, when we do, because he says something we agree with; not merely because he is the person who has said it.

    or you cannot see or feel Him.

    Talk about statin’ the bleedin’ obvious. If we could see or somehow “feel” him, we would believe in his existence. You haven’t made an argument. You’ve just defined what an atheist is.

    You believe in UFO but you do not believe in JESUS.

    If AC believes in UFO’s, as in believes that unidentified flying objects are actual alien spacecraft, rather than merely being unidentified, then AC and I are heading for some, erm, “lively” discussion. On t’other hand, even if he does so, he is, unlike far too many religionists, not trying to have laws enacted, or restrict the rights of others, based on his belief.

    AgentCormac the non-existence of God can be asserted without evidence as well as can be dismissed without evidence. I look forward to your evidence for the non-existence.

    Actually, no. Non-existence is, or should be, the default assumption unless evidence for existence is presented. Or are you seriously telling me that until it is proved that fairies dont exist, you will insist on believing in fairies? How about the Easter Bunny, or 12-foot tall lesbian nazi vampires from Mars?

    The existence of evil on earth is a perfect proof of the existence of supernatural evil, as it were in a form of a fallen angel.

    1: If something exists, its existence is not in any way proof that a supernatural version of it exists.

    2: Evil is not a thing, independent in its own right. As an adjective, the word evil describes certain actions of human beings deemed to exceptionally bad from the perspective of other human beings. As a noun, it’s applied, generally, to the indulgence, especially en mass, of human beings in such activities. The “existence of evil” depends entirely on the existence of sentient beings capable of distinguishing bad from good.

    For example no human being by himself is able to come up with the idea of concentration camps.

    Why not? And who ever claimed that the idea sprang from one person’s thoughts alone? And why does it matter whether it was one person or many in collaboration?

    Tangible existence of supernatural evil can be easily found in haunted places as well as during exorcisms (casting out demons from haunted persons).

    1: Please explain how you know whether a house is haunted or not.

    2: Have you seen the actual demon which was purportedly cast out?

    do not quote on and on Wikipedia.org because it is boring.

    Boringness has no bearing on truthfulness or pertinence.

    How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind

    I don’t care that Anthony Flew changed his mind. (Nor, I must admit, do I recall a time when he was ever “the most notorious” atheist.) Anthony Flew may well have found certain arguments, or certain evidence compelling. I do not find those arguments or that evidence compelling.

    If you know of arguments or evidence that you think may change my mind, present it. Don’t just wave your hands and complain that I should follow Anthony Flew like a fuckin’ sheep.

  8. I concur with with everything Daz has said in his reply to you, Seff, so I shan’t waste my time reiterating it for your benefit.

    I would, however, just like to add that you seem to have certain unfounded assumptions about atheists (gurus, UFOs, deathbed conversions, etc.) which show you clearly haven’t got a clue what you’re talking about. As for fallen angels, haunted places and the like, I guess you watch too many ‘paranormal’ videos on YouTube. No doubt you’ll be telling us next that there are alien spacecraft at the centre of the Earth.

    Finally, I’ll just repeat the following: how can I disprove something that doesn’t exist? Until you offer up evidence that gods do exist (and to date no one had been able to provide a single shred of such evidence), the simple truth of the matter is that they don’t. I’m sorry if that’s inconvenient for you, but you are at some point going to have to face reality.
