Classic Rant: On the Nature of Genuine Class-A Dumbfuck Stupidity

You know, I've met stupid people of all stripes over my many decades living on this planet. All races, all levels of education, all social classes; there's stupidity in all varieties and levels of human society.

But there's mostly only one group of people so utterly dumbfuck stupid AND so totally determined to REMAIN stupid that they will close their eyes and shout 'no no no' and refuse to even look at written truth that could free them from their dumbfuck ignorance: religious nuts.

Not just any religious person either; most religious people, even mainstream or even fundamentalist, even devout religious people of any religion usually are still willing to at least LOOK at something that contradicts what they desperately want to believe. 

No, to be the kind that says "I won't even read that there thing you showeded me cause it's from the devil and it got the devil in it!!" you need to be a Bible/Quran/Gita-Thumping hooting hollering True Believer.
It takes absolute pigshit-ignorance to be that level of religious fanatic.

And that's what we increasingly see from certain breeds of online Leftists.  I've had several debates on G+ with a certain leftist who has repeatedly humiliated himself in discussions by not just being wrong, but outright refusing to read material, even firsthand-source proof of what we're talking about, if it doesn't come from the list of what he considers "orthodox" Establishment-news Media.  Material that immediately makes it obvious that he's wrong, and why and how he's wrong, to the point that he becomes a laughing stock to anyone following the conversation.

This guy claims to be an atheist, but he's really a religious fanatic. If you're so determined to cling to his dumbfuck leftist fairy tales that you're scared to even look at anything that could provide evidence to the contrary or that you're wrong, you're obviously not clinging to a rational set of conclusions about the world, it's not even a strongly-held conviction. You're a fanatical religious fundamentalist clinging to what your priesthood has told you. You're Boko Haram.

  1. This is a popular analogy because it's true... radical leftists are acting like religious zealots. But it perfectly describes their uncompromising view of the world.

  2. They aren't LIKE religious zealots; they ARE religious zealots.

    Religions don't have to be theistic. If I remember correctly, the Buddha teaches "I don't know if gods exist. But if they do, you shouldn't worship them because you don't know what they are getting out of the deal." That's actively anti-theistic, as opposed to just atheistic. But Buddhism is still a religion.

    The Left is an atheistic, Romantic religion that rejects objective reality. And one of their core religious beliefs is "Our beliefs are not religious; they are Truth, and anyone who doesn't share them is either stupid or evil." Which conveniently makes those beliefs irrefutable, so you can't actually have any sort of productive discussion with them.

    I'm an atheist, but I can work with Christians because they generally accept reality at the level where we actually live. As long as you accept that "force equals mass times acceleration", it doesn't matter if you think that is the result of physics or gods. But, if you believe that F=MA is a social construct created by dead white men in order to oppress women and people of color, and it will change if enough right-thinking people get into power and change social beliefs...well, I don't even know where to start with something like that.

    And that makes the Left dangerous. Because they reject objective reality, their plans tend to fail. And they believe that they fail, not because the plans are flawed, but because not enough people believed in them. And so they start murdering non-believers and you get death camps, gulags, engineered famine, killing fields, etc.

    Ugh...sorry for the rant. I accidentally stumbled back into politics and now I'm freaking out about what the future holds for my toddler.
