Well, my main thoughts with spam were to just delete it. However, I'm new to the blog scene and getting spammed by someone knocking atheism meant it was at least mildly targeted and not just porn, which makes me feel oddly special, plus DM has been very persistent in getting *the same* comment posted. So, please indulge me, or just skip to the end for the Sound of Science.

"The atheists are coming to my city - MONTREAL! please be sure to stop by for tea atheism is dead forever!"

I'd love to go to Montreal, and, I'll take you up on the offer of tea, if you don't mind paying my tickets, travel etc.

As for atheism being dead, the Gnu Atheist movement, and these statistics kinda say otherwise.

"add comment moderation to your BS you will not have a PUBLIC FORUM NEW GAME WITH YOU LITTLE F*CKERS - SPEAK N DIE. Come see the latest DM videos for your viewing pleasure! the WORLD TRADE CENTER PROPHECY - THE DANCE OF DEATH "

I've not added moderation, but blogger has automatic spam detection. Top tip though, one can still get a point across with out swearing.

"And the Pope is 100% correct: The Nazis and the atheists both wish to ABOLISH FAITH...."

The Nazis may have been up for abolishing faith, but atheists are a mixed bunch. Certainly, there may be some who would like faith abolished. However, I suspect that, like my self, the larger, and over whelming majority are happy for people to believe whatever they want, so long as that doesn't impose on the rights of others. To do this, one must have a secular society whose laws and governance are based on the evidence of the matter at hand, and not religious dogma.

"hawking is WRONG science cannot explain NOTHING! FAIR AND BALANCED! _____"

I'll ignore your double negative. And your links. I tend to respond better to people who don't emphasise their words with capitals throughout; who maybe engage on the matters at hand, and who don't spit random links out at me. It's quite clear that we disagree on a few things. If you're ever coming to the UK, perhaps we can meet for a cup of tea and talk more civily.


  1. I'm Jealous, You just started and you've already got psycho fundie stalkers. I don't have any fundie stalkers. Some people get to have all the fun.

  2. It's this guy:

    I do hope he gets the help he needs.

  3. "The Nazis may have been up for abolishing faith"

    No, really, they weren't. Don't concede this point. The Nazis suppressed atheism, and ruled in the name of Christianity.

    The line of thought that led to the Holocaust traces from Martin Luther, not Darwin.

  4. Good point William - teach me for writing in a rush. The point I failed, but wanted, to make, was more that the Nazis abolished all faith that didn't match their own ideology.

    Thanks for highlighting.
