I’ve written on the unfair notions that often flow from those who oppose religion. My latest piece entitled "Flawed Inclinations Are No MisterE" brought about quite an odd reaction from MisterE:
"I’m sorry Billy, I didn’t read your entire post because even the first few sentences are wrought with errors, misinterpretations, weird comebacks (as if you were a child on a playground), and circular arguments." - MisterE
Oddly, the first sentence of that particular piece was comprised of his own words:
“…I’m so outspoken about the positives of atheism and the negatives of religion.” - MisterE
Then, I wrote:
"We’re still waiting to hear about these alleged positives. So far, all MisterE has provided is personal opinion flavored with incessant rhetoric." - Me
So, where are the errors, misinterpretations and weird comments? I’m confused. I wouldn’t even claim his first sentence fit that bill, although I find it flagrant.
"You’ve yet to provide us with any evidence that evolution did not occur. Until you do so, I will not consider any new argument from you, no matter how terribly undereducated or poorly thought out it is." - MisterE
And he’s yet to provide us with viable evidence that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that it did occur.
Now, I’m undereducated. And I poorly draft my ideas, which is interesting considering that’s the first time I’ve been charged with such a crime. But, I suppose that’s what we do when we don’t understand the thoughts or perceptions of others — call them dumb and refuse to listen to them.
I suppose I’m not the only child on the playground.
