Don't let's be beastly to the Christians

Ideology now needs to be handled with tongs at a safe distance through the tools of parody, ridicule, satire or direct criticism. Hipster culture endlessly permeates into similarly detached derivations, each with the same nihilistic bent.

We don’t believe in anything too strongly these days. It isn’t immorality, more an emerging non-morality. But if you don’t believe in anything, is it a contradiction to definitively believe that there is no God?
Um, no. In Werewolf James Robinson asks why us hipsters don't want to hang out with him and his Christian friends. Short answer: it is because you are so whiney. And you only want us for our immortal souls. And you always want to talk about worldviews.

I could go on, but I won't. Instead, I wish you all, gentle readers, a happy New Year. Thank you for stopping by.

Yeah, kind of looks like an episode of Scooby Doo.

And Jesus would have gotten away with it too, if it wasnt for you meddling atheists!

Does that make them better or worse than brain-eating zombies?

Rusty said...

That assumes their victims have brains.

Word verification: etskin - it's as if the computer knew!

I have often wondered if fundies would defend zombie personhood in the event of a zombie apocalypse ("But they have human genetic codes! So what if they're brain dead, they're still human beings'!")

I'd assume they would focus more on the presence or absence of a soul rather than worrying about, you know, the scientific facts.

So if jesus has already got the zombies immortal soul, then can we condemn zombies? Or do zombies have a free have-sex with-whoever-you-want-card?

[51] And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
[52] And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
[53] And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Presumably these sleeping Saints kept their souls with their bodies, but I am no theologian

Thus was the tradition laid down that town's always dead on a Sunday.

Or perhaps there's a Revised Zombie Version of the Bibble that we don't know about...??? Ulp.
