Apologetics

Apologetics

Fair warning, I’m going to be a little rude. That being said… fuck apologetics. That’s right. Fuck apologetics. It’s a pathetic position. I used to be really harsh toward fundamentalists, but they show their crazy feathers just fine all on their own. However, these days people are falling in with apologists left and right. Why? Why now? I believe it’s no coincidence that they are coming out of the woodwork. Again, fundamentalism i s proving itself to be an insane position. So along comes apologetics to preserve the traditions of misogyny, rape, murder, incest, genocide and so on.

What is apologetics? The most basic premise of apologetics is to argue in favor of and attempt to justify something. In this case and for our purposes, we are talking about Christian apologetics. You’ve undoubtedly encountered them. Their task is to attempt to justify the horrid nature of the bible, its messages and its origins. Many attempt to distance themselves from the old testament by using the concepts of parable and metaphor to create that division between the message they want to convey and the bullshit that’s actually written. They cherry pick the old testament and focus primarily upon the new testament.

Effectively, they know everything that’s wrong with the book and the ideology. Instead of being reasonable and rational and scrapping the bible, they instead do everything they can to make interpretations in favor and defense of this miserable mythology. Why would anyone choose to do this? It should be obvious. These apologists, with their books and paid lecture tours are making serious bank perpetuating these ideas and notions. They take advantage of those who want to do good, but can’t quite let go of their religious ideas. They manipulate those with cognitive dissonance and use their cognitive blind spots to continue the grift.

Choosing to ignore the origins of their faith. Arguing favourably for old testament precepts while ignoring the lunatic parts within the same book. Claiming to be able to interpret the intentions of the ancient people who wrote the ancient texts. These are reasons enough to dismiss anything and everything any apologist has to say, without going into the atrocities and mangled verses that compromise the origins of the Christian faith. So, once again… Fuck apologetics.

So, once again… Fuck apologetics #atheist #atheism #apologists
