Pssht. You obviously have never seen *real* hairy man booby!
Umm...Hi! I was told I got advertised here, and my ego wouldn't let me *not* come and see.
Yeah. THe idea of them *re-writing* the bible...ugh. Let's just say I agree with everything in that video. Including the swearing
Yeah, hm, and I don’t really need to. I may be biased though; I’m a relatively hairless guy.
Anyhoo, my real point is it might distract some of your intended audience as just some crazy drunk guy on the web. Not sure if any of bastards you’re ranting at are among that intended audience; I have a feeling you’d be falling on deaf ears. Those types like to see it as they see it.
Setting all politics and theology aside for a moment, I am firmly of the conviction there is a fundamental core difference in the mindset and pattern of thinking between hardcore conservatives and most of the rest of us, not just liberals perhaps.
And I do want to stress I am referring here to the hardcore conservative bible-thumper you’re directing this video at, not all conservatives across the board: I must reiterate this point because a few members of this forum like to accuse me of making general ‘blanket statements’…you know who you are.
I have an overtly Christian aunt in Texas, and a fiery non-cessationist cousin in Arizona, so I don’t even have to come here if I want a good fiery debate. They are a good example on how the brains are wired differently, if not on a nature level as well certainly on a nurture level. It comes down to how far into the hard mentality you are, on a scale of one to ten. This hardcore mindset is most comfortable in the herd. The sort of ideas they subscribe to are what they want to see in the world around them. To paraphrase the late Dr. Sagan, they’re after what makes them feel good, and not after things as they really are. It comes down to you being happy being told how things are, as opposed to skeptically interrogating the universe for the answers.
At risk of sounding a tad smug, I believe it’s a generally fragile psyche, very resistant to change and new concepts. What science tells us, that we do not occupy a privileged position as a species or on the star charts, that some loving father-figure is not going save our asses if we irrevocably fuck our planet up…well, it’s a big, scary universe for some folks. And it’s a universe painted in subtle shades of grey, not the more comfortable and simplistic black & white these types want. Better to write the books so it fits what you’d like to see.
