Fundamentally ignorant August 1, 2009

Posted by fetzthechemist in Uncategorized.

Whenever I hear or read of religious fundamentalists, I think of their inherent hypocrisy. Whether Christian or Muslim, fundamentalists supposedly accept the literal version of their scriptures and reject modernity as sinful. Modern society is full of things immoral that are part and parcel, so modern life is sinful and that is why they attach what is taught in schools and the creations of an atheistic science. The violence in Afghanistan and Nigerian highlight this overseas, but here in the US there are many fundamental Christians who celebrate owning high-powered rifles or blog on creationism.

BS! They do not reject cars, the Internet allows them to spew their hateful messages. Modern weapons allow them to kill abortion doctors or blow up building (remember that the Oklahoma City bombing were done by Christian fanatics?), and lots of other violence. If modern science is so evil, use the spears and bows and arrows written about in the Bible and Koran! Walk to get somewhere or ride a horse, camel, or donkey.

These people want a repressive society where they do not have to deal with anything. Anyone else is forced to live like them. They do not want to tolerate differences or sharing of power. Ignorance is bliss, so they do not want education. But they rely on outsiders to build their PCs, cars, rifles.
