Many religious zealots feel compelled to express their anger and resentment at having their deeply-held religious beliefs subjected to scientific, critical examination. Many of these Christian zealots seem to be greatly annoyed that the heathens among them know and understand the Christian bible far better than they do.

Lacking the wisdom to keep their mouthes shut least they make an already embarrassing situation worse, it seems a (thank the gods) small percentage of the True Believers among us just can't resist the temptation of trying to salvage their lost position.

It's not our intention to cause hurt feelings and resentment (certainly not anger) among our theistic brothers and sisters yet we certainly do attempt to make believers start to THINK! for themselves by noticing how easilly what they're told to believe is evidenced false.

Every so often one lunatic rant rises above all the rest and screams out to be noticed. Placing them into the end of the main Skeptic Tank web page wasn't enough: Atheists and theists alike enjoyed the entertaining Fundamentalist Zealot Rant of the Month section so much that a new web page had to be created.

So step up to the microphone, True Beliebers, and let's see if you can join the parade of lunatics who will believe anything your masters tell you to believe.

You know you want to.


"Embarrassed silences"? I've never had one of those, not while on this echo anyway. And while you're at it, go ahead and laugh now..... the day will come when, all of a sudden, it's not funny anymore, as YHWH is judging you. On that day, Fredric, that insane Star Goat garbage won't stand up in YHWH's courtroom. - Darryl Gonzales (June, 1997, HolySmoke echo.)

Hey Fred,

How are you doing. I told you I would get back to you when I had the proof that the bible is correct and science needs to once again revise its body of truth.

You had ridiculed the bible where God had said rabbits chew their cuds and bats are birds and grasshoppers walk on all fours.

Well grasshoppers do walk on all fours. they just have some extras for whatever.

bats are birds but I do not have the proof for this yet.

rabbits do chew their cuds.

What do you think about that?

It's too bad that you chose to talk doctrine with rich allen, a man obviously weak in his faith and own belief; who obviously didn't know how to answer your questions. Not that I do, but I can offer some points to answer some of what rich allen avoided or weakly avoided with threats and rants. First of all, your talk of christianity as unscientific and with scientific errors and contradictions is flawed and doesn't take into account the absolute diety that God is, whose logic is beyond what our limited, insufficient human minds can come up with; you place Him in your own box by saying what He can or can't do, but this doesn't change who He is. Christianity is not about science. as c.s. lewis says, If there is "Something Behind", then either it will have to remain altogether unknown to men or else make itself known in some different way. THe statement that there is any such thing, and the statement that there is no such thing are neither of them statements that science can make. And real scientists do not usually make them. It is usually the journalists and popular novelists who have picked up a few odds and ends of half-baked science from textbooks who go in for them. After all, it really is a matter of common sense. Supposing science ever became complete so that it knew every single thing in the whole universe. Is it not plain that the questions "Why is there a universe?" "Why does it go on as it does?" "Has it any meaning?" would remain just as they were? Also, about your statement that God is only something we have invented so there is justification for doing what we truly want to do, this is an ignorant statement that was thrown out with little or no thought. Christianity is not something of "convenience", it is pretty obvious that Christianity is not about behavior that pays off for oneself. It means being happy with 5 dollars when you could have gotten 100, it means doing school work honestly when you could easily cheat, it means leaving a girl alone when you'd like to screw her, it means staying in dangerous places when you could go somewhere safer, keeping promises you don't want to keep, and telling the truth when it makes you look like a fool. And why would we do these things in and of ourselves when we would rather do what we truly want to do, why do we obey that still small voice within us when our human nature roars for the fullfilment of the flesh, certainly not because it is convinient for us or because we want to! It's because there is a moral law, and indeed there is a true God behind it.

Sir: Hears some facts for you, a little reality. First, I'm not a member of any political party, i don't need any party to tell me whos the good guy, and who are the crooks. I know a crook when i see one. And being a Vietnam Veteren, living on a low annual income, I'm about the last thing on this planet that these millionare theives are thinking about. I find it laughable, that you're all stirred over these White Supremacists, who couldn't number more than 5% of society. While the millionare elite, are saleing our country to the highest bidder.While they talk about they're new World Order, which they've failed to give us the details about same. These Monsters are about to create a global economy, in which we and our children will be considered as a commodity to be explioted. THESE PEOPLE ARE ABOUT TO RULE THIS PLANET, AND WERE WORRYED ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACIST AND HILLBILLY WHITE SEPARATISTS !! WELL THEY AUGHT TO GIVE YOU GUYS THE NOBLE PRIZE FOR THIS ONE ! LISTEN TO ME,.....WE'VE LOST IT. SHIT!! THESE WHITE SUPREMICISTS DON'T KNOW IT, BUT THEY WON'T HAVE ANY CONTROL OVER WHATS ABOUT TO HAPPEN, THAN YOU WILL. ITS SIMPLE FOLKS, WHILE WE'RE DOWN HERE FIGHTING OVER A BONE, THEIR SALEING US INTO BONDAGE!! AND WITH THE HELP OF PEOPLE SUCH AS YOU'RE SELVES, I THINK THE JOB WILL GET DONE SOONER.

You know, I really feel sorry for you. I'm not here to hurt your feelings or critize you in any way, I just am really sad for you. I hate to see anyone with a total lack of faith and not only that, creating a stumbling block for others as well. I hope you realize the damage that you could be doing and I hope you will change. I will pray for you. I only wish you happiness, but of course you won't understand why I'm sending you this message. You have your beliefs and I have mine, and it's probably unlikely that you'll change but through God, all things are possible. I wish you happiness and peace...

" A FOOL has said in his heart there is no God." Our Society is in a great mess that is so easily blamed, by people of your persuasion, on the teachings of The Bible and the Christ it tells of. Christian ethics and teaching wether you accept it or not is what has kept this insignificant little country called America from total caos. Now that the the standards and teachings you have "Walked away from" are being thrown out, we see the downfall of this country and more tragic the destruction of lives from AIDS, abortions, drugs, teen pregnacy, suicide, and crime. Thanks alot. keep it up and help others to "walk Away" You're doing a great service. Oh by the way . . ."You're an idiot"
