I agree, Karl. True Truth was quite disheartening, but on the order of Rider on the Storm and Hick-up, if you know them, but an academic.<quoted text>
he has both education, and intellect
it is most discouraging to see, how deeply he is a fundie,
and how profoundly unethical is his true philosophy.
His thinking was pretty damaged. He was pro-religion - any religion. He took the Christian's part, even though he was Muslim, arguing against unbelievers about how useful the Christians were to the world, but couldn't provide much in the way of support or specifics. He just knew that the Christians had to be doing good. I guess they told him. He apparently prefers people who worship a rival god to those with no god at all, undoubtedly due to some Muslim teaching that puts Muslims above Christians, and unbelievers (infidels) beneath Christians.
The Holocaust denier stuff was news to me. You've got to be pretty analytically and morally bereft to to buy into it or disseminate that stuff.
But how that distinguishes him to Hiding was what was of interest to me. I thought he was pretty much par for the course.
Stumpjohn at Atheists on the March in America gets my vote for the least likeable theist on Topix.
