Oooh! I'm an atheist. Can I play?

Is such childishness supposed to make you feel better or smarter?


Don't do that.

2. Why do you so consistently invoke the Bible when nobody else has?


Don't do that one either...

3. Why do you almost invariably pretend that you have science on your side, and Christians are anti-science?
Why all these lies?


Wow...that's a so very wide brush. I assume I have science on my side in matters of scientific concern, or where religion contradicts science. Science has nothing to say (truth or lies) about matters outside it's realm.

4. Why are you so intolerant of dissent? Atheists invade other websites and spam to their hearts' content. But let anyone enter these unhallowed halls who does not bow down and worship Your Nothingness and he is cast out very quickly. You folks must be really afraid of something. I suspect it is the truth that you fear.


I don't participate on any religious or atheist web sites (other than this one I guess). I've never seen anyone cast out of here for failing to bow down to anyone or anything. I'm afraid of swimming in deep ocean water. Too many shark movies growing up I guess. I don't fear the truth...I seek it. It is pretty elusive at times.

Happy trolling!

It's not my fault if the first person to spot the troll doesn't chain it down for long-term fun.

I'm sure there will be another one in a month or so.

Oh, don't worry. He'll be back. He may try usung another new name, but he'll still be visible. RM is not one to admit defeat.

I really hope he doesn't.

I'm all for an intelligent conversation however, I strongly doubt this will be one despite our best efforts. This guy will be no swickstrum . Him I respected.

The average amount he's spent on his posts (according the time between posts) is about 5 mins. During that time he managed to say very little that was relevant to the topic (except when he created it), start random partisan hackary and generally insult most people in the forum. All without actually reading anything about us. I'm curious how he ended up here actually.

I hope he reads something up on us on wikipedia or something first before he response again.

All trademark techniques of our old pal RenaissanceMan. He'd disappear for a few days, and come back frothing at the mouth again, howling and carrying on without paying the least attention to the content of any responses to his BS, no matter how polite or well-considered. Many of us tried to have reasonable discussions with him, but he is completely incapable of accepting that an argument contrary to his opinion even has the potential to be valid. That same stubbornness is why I'm confident he'll be back.

Sigh.... I was really hoping for some brain candy. I did a random Google search on his name and ended up with a bunch of posts all with the same themes and all with a join date of March 2009. Safe to assume it's the same person based on themes, join date, and love of lists, Posting and linking same site, phoenix and sentence structure are similar as well.
http://www.scam.com/search.php?searchid=4504821

In short since he wont' read the entire thread.

barrackzero Your what's wrong with America.

As usual in most forums people respond hoping for actual conversation than drivels down to..

"1. Let me know when a marble statue waves at you.
2. Let me know when a cow jumps over the moon, will you?" -BarrackZero

Not even realizing that any of his arguments can be turned around very quickly.
He also likes lists and apparently really really hates Richard Dawkins.

quotes like
"Hey, it's getting cold in here. Turn the thermostat up, to where Oblammy likes it, about where you can grow orchids."
-Barrackzero
Are appartly not the least bit racist.

"Little girl, you're in over your head.
You should have quit while you were behind."

Aww isn't he understanding and looking for an intelligent conversation. You just know he's the poster boy for understanding.

"So why to god-fearing, god-hating atheists like Dawkins lie about something as elementary as statistics, hmmm?"
God wasn't even part of the conversation till he made it part of it.

"Put on your burka, and shut up, before we throw acid in your ugly face."
Nope no hate here, Just love.

"As I said to you before, little girl, you should have quit while you were behind.

Socialism is for losers."
Barack do you even know what socialism is...... (when talking about health care)



Barrackzero I leave you with a perl of wisdom that you said so well

"If you weren't such an arrogant, condescending individual, you might have something useful to say.

Now grow up." (http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?t=115482) post #22

May God have mercy on your soul.

He's right. I was looking for hemoglobin but I found Branes instead.

Two "branes" touched and when they touched, created the Big Bang, and voila.

From these theoretical, wishful, hypothetical, imaginary "branes" came matter, energy, organization, and information.

Now where did these "branes" come from?



This could be useful!

Spector, I'm guessing that if you did the same search under RenaissanceMan, you'd find blog entries that are interchangeable with the ones you found under zero. Good job dredging this stuff up, I certainly wouldn't have the patience to read very many of his ravings....

I am all for being your troll. But of course we dont call Christians names in here, do we, gents... i mean mateys?
As i am tired and cannot read all of this info in one day and absorb it, i would greatly like to inform you that should there be a specific series of questions that you wish to ask a devout follower of Christ, i am open for the intelligent conversation you so thirst for.

But specifically to Tigger the Wing, if he/she is still here, how can you be a Christian who has tolerance for others. Not trying to sound boorish here, but to throw around Bible verses(and she IS a Christian so she shouldnt mind) remember that verse, in John 14:6 Jesus says "I am the Way the Truth and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through Me." Not very tolerant and open-minded sounding to me.

I love you and I pray in Jesus's perfect name

Dear Moe Sunkist,

If the Christian is a troll, we call him/her a Christian Troll. If the troll is an atheist/buddhist/muslim etc, we call him/her an atheist/buddhist/muslim troll. If a Pastafarian goes in other sites and acts like a troll, he/she would be a Pastafarian Troll.

Perhaps it is just a coincidence that most trolls here would usually happen to be Christians, but they don't have to be. Being a Christian does not necessarily make you a troll, just like being a troll does not make you a Christian. It all depends on the purpose for being here, and one's behaviour while one is here.

Hello Moe Sunkist!

Welcome to the forum. I don't know if you have the wrong idea about this place: this is not an anti-religious forum; this is not an atheist forum. Its main purpose is to oppose the teaching of Intelligent Design in schools as an alternative theory to evolution. That is the whole reason that Pastafarianism came about in the first place.

There would appear to be quite a significant correlation between the proponents of Intelligent Design and evangelist Christian fundamentalists (not that they shout about it themselves), so some of the people we have a go at are Christians; but it is their attitude towards science and education we object to, not their religion.

We have active members who are Christians, Buddhists and Moslems. We have agnostics, atheists, humanists, undecideds. We even had a troll here for a while who was a rastafarian (he was actually quite funny, but he kept accusing us of being vampires for some reason).

The only requirement for our members is that they treat each other with respect. You are very welcome to come here and debate with us as long as you respect the people you are conversing with. If you disrespect people here, you will end up banned: not because of your religion, but because you failed to observe the one basic requirement for all of our members, regardless of creed or religion.
