Over the years “religious” acquaintances of mine have defended their supernatural beliefs by saying,
“I know that I know that I know that I know.”
For me, this is an egotistical defense of stupidity. Their use of “I know” is fundamentally a sandbagging defense mechanism considering the fact that there is no way to logically and factually defend supernatural nonsense.
Is not it futile to attempt to make sense out of nonsense? Supernaturalism is the absurdity of saying,
“there is definitely no way I can scientifically and logically defend my belief program, but I stand by and defend it anyway.”
Their use of “I know” is fundamentally a sandbagging defense mechanismIs not it type of absurd to defend the indefensible? My normal answer for these who think in virgin births, corpses increasing from the dead, saints and sinners, devils and hellfire is,
“I know, that you know, that there is no way deep-down you can possibly think that bullshit.”
I know, that you know, that anybody who makes it possible for themselves to critically consider can be that goddamn stupid.
I emphatically state, “Why supernatural when Nature is so wonderful!” Why an invented super-becoming from a supernatural planet that has brought endless
cruelty, misery, fighting, and disunity to the human planet?
