A bit like your own cult really. Why should we be surprised when it spawns dishonest animals like you creationist troll folk?
You tell me which post that you created is honest? You spew your nonsense to everyone and you tend to lie. Have you noticed that you are the only one saying that stuff? So why do you want to use the Final Solution?

MENLO PARK (The Borowitz Report)—Before a rapt audience at Facebook headquarters Thursday, Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg unveiled new software that he promised “will totally change the way you are wasting your life.”
Explaining the development of Facebook’s new phone software, Home, Mr. Zuckerberg said,“Our research showed that Facebook users still had a few hours a day when they were leading somewhat healthy and productive lives. Our new software will change all of that.”
Mr. Zuckerberg said his developers had worked for months developing Home,“which seizes control of your phone and makes it good for little other than Facebook—much like many Facebook users themselves.”
By bombarding the user with status updates on a twenty-four-hour basis, he boasted,“Home transforms Facebook from just a social network into something akin to a neurological disorder.”
As the audience applauded that pronouncement, Mr. Zuckerberg added,“At Facebook, we want to be a million voices inside your head.”
When one member of the audience worried whether Home would give Facebook even more access to private information about one’s life, Mr. Zuckerberg reassured the questioner,“After using Home for several weeks, you will have no life.”
While clearly proud of his latest product, Mr. Zuckerberg gave notice that he did not intend to rest on his laurels:“At Facebook, we will never stop striving to replace real experience with something soulless and empty.”
Most amusing.:)

So have atheist.
Then perhaps you can explain this:

What's the difference for killing under an atheist megalomaniac like Stalin, or killing for a divine megalomaniac like the bible god and pretending it's all good?

One could make the argument that killing for Stalin is a survival instinct at the individual level.

But killing in the name of god, even though god has a direct commandment not to do so, how do you think that's better?

Does disobeying god please god?

Only indirectly. If he posted on Topix, I don't remember-- you may be correct.
But he has created 1000's of YouTube videos, mostly on the subject of atheism.
He's one of the forward-thinkers who dared question the atheist-dynasty of PZ Myers. Myers then turned on him and attempted to discredit TF. TF came out of that one on top, and Myers has not really recovered. No real loss there.
I didn't see that confrontation.

PZ back in the day kept me up on the Dover trial but I don't check his blog nearly as much when they switched hosts/providers(?).

Thunderf00t is outstanding with debunking creationist claims.

He takes stuff you learn in basic science classes (well, including a couple of early college courses that should be taught in high school) and applies them to his argument.

But in the last WDPLAC video, he pulls on the emotion and it hits home.

How do you justify killing a child in the name of god?

The theists have no problem answering that question. And think they are doing good.

I used to be a daily-checker of PZ's blog. But after he acted the idiot over TF, I deleted my bookmark, and haven't been back since. It's PZ's loss, in my opinion.

But I still try to keep up with TF-- he lost a kid not long ago, and it was quite tragic. And I thought his response to that tragedy was ... heroic.

I didn't know that--I haven't been following him on YT. I have three daughters who are doing fine. If I need a boost, all I have to do is picture one of their faces. Losing one of them would crush me.

When PZ went to the new hosting, I didn't keep up as much. The occasional check in, I saw he had gotten into a stir about female scientists (he was defending) but really didn't delve into it.

Didn't hear about TF's loss. Sorry to hear that.

I didn't keep up with his youtube series over the last year or so. Got pulled back in when one of his videos was linked on another board where he was hammering a "pop culture analyst*" decrying how video games are anti-women.

It's not better. People kill not God. People use all sorts of names to kill, but it's still people.

Atheism = lack of belief in god. Has nothing to do with genocide.

Besides, it took your catholic hitler to invent the final solution, how can we forget?

You just embarass yourself day after day here wortheless unmarried creationist lardass who failed to get into a good university, now left mentally challenged by the cult that ditched him.

Your bible teaches its followers to hate and kill. Its written in black and white and not a single "moral believer" has the balls or morals to correct that judgemental filth.

And now you two faced religious pricks come round here telling us science is wrong, Go f*ck yourselves you lying sacks of creationist sh*t.

Come back when you have some actual evidence for your bullsh*t cult.

But you and your skinheads wish death upon theists. You applaud the final solution. Oh, he turned on Catholicism too. If you read, he has priests arrested.

Sorry, but you have no clue about anyone to make an accurate level remark. You speak out of your arse but I guess that's expected from you. Please, don't speak to me, it won't hurt my feelings. I promise, you are considered entertainment.

ThunderF00t took the loss of his son pretty hard; it was very clear, from his memorial YouTube, that he was deeply affected by the loss.

What saddened me though, was the hatecultists' comments on that video and elsewhere. The majority could be summed up with, "thanks to you, your son is now burning in hell" or worse. The level of vitriol spewing forth at TF, after he announced his loss, was ... disgusting. Even by the low standards of the internets.

What can one say, in answer to such hate? Best not to dwell on it, I suppose.

Bottom line: cherish whatever time you have, with the ones you love-- time is always and forevermore, finite. And shorter that we'd like it to be--always.

Yeah. People are weird like that-- it's easy to point a finger at someone's behavior, and decry "THIS!" or "THAT!" without really taking a look into the mirror.

Sometimes I think that's a deliberate, if subconscious behavior, to sort of protect ourselves from too much self-criticism.

Alas, if one gets in the habit of ignoring one's own mirror? One is apt to behave like...

... a politician or lawyer or other bottom-dwelling scum sucker.

(and yes-- the other's just a fish)

:D
