  1. This is an example of the point where a “weblog” ceases to become a weblog, and instead represents a social network–something more like a Facebook wall than a place for discussion.

    Why bother thinking? Why worry about grammar, diction, or analysis of any kind? All you need to do is link to something, and the problem’s solved!

    1. I’m glad you like hanging out here. I also quite enjoy the fact my hobby make you so uncomfortable you feel the need to make me uncomfortable too.
      By accusing me of not thinking and of misusing the WordPress facility, that is exactly what you’re doing, by the way.

      Interestingly, what problem do you think I think this video solves?

      1. It produces a post. You’re using a medium to which people come to experience your insights, much like a newspaper writer. However, in the absence of any original points to make, you’ve resorted to cross-linking.

        We saw this occur in news media throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Instead of fielding actual independent journalists, news corporations found it more profitable to simply paraphrase Associated Press feeds, or show pictures of Jennifer Aniston looks like at a nude beach.

        One of the hopes of the internet was that it would cause people like you to engage their readers directly–to be original, independent thinkers. It’s been a sad thing seeing individuals, with no profit motive, engaging in the same behaviors as major corporate media: deferring to established authority; creating tribalistic echo chambers of condescending agreement; and, perhaps worst of all, offering nothing except clickbait to someone else’s story.

        You’re intelligent in many ways, and that will probably improve as time passes. It’s certainly acceptable to link to someone else’s perspective, but don’t stop there, or else your blog will become just another accumulation of links. That may be the majority of “blogs” now, but it needn’t be yours, too.

        1. First of all, thank you for your complements.
          Secondly, I don’t think the video I shared is as vacuous as celebrity nudes. So the comparison is not appreciated.
          You seem to be suggesting that Matthew Inman, the cartoonist from The Oatmeal, is some sort of authority, which he isn’t; he is using reasoning that people genuinely use, explicating it clear up any obfuscation, and using it to defend the patently incredible.
          It’s not click bait, you can watch it directly in WordPress. It wouldn’t even matter if it were clickbait, because it’s not click bait to my site and it doesn’t make me money.
          I don’t know what you find condescending about the video or why you think it’s tribalistic.
          I’ve posted several hundred times and only 3 of them have been videos without discussion.
          Not only that, but the fact that I’m not making any money means that I can short cut a message if I feel like it. That isn’t what I have done, however. I have simply shared comedy with a theme similar to the theme I often discuss (admittedly, more respectfully).
          Again, I am glad you enjoy hanging out here. But your motivation to do nothing but attempt to knock my confidence without offering content is a frustration.

  2. Yeah, then there is ‘why do people laugh at creationists,’ as if all are cut from the same cloth. If this guy here was the chief spokeman for atheism, he would have no beg for converts.

    Then again, how much of the brain must be engaged to ‘like’ this as comedy.

    Will anybody in these parts say that this was pretty much disgusting? Forget the God insults, on the merits of this presentation, do people actually think this is funny?
