I wrote the other day about a messianic Jew who wrote some highly stupid things to Mikey Weinstein, who told him in blunt language to have coital relations with himself and stop bothering him. So that guy, Menachem Mevashir, decided he would write to me too. In his first email he quoted JD’s comment on that post:
Interesting decision to include the text of only one side of the email, while casually dismissing the vitriol of Weinstein’s.
Ah yes, good old-fashioned tone trolling. I don’t give two shits about profanity, or rudeness for that matter. Mikey treated Mevashir exactly as he deserves to be treated, as an idiot. But ZOMG, he used bad words! At the end of his email, Mevashir wrote:
I do consider myself a Christian. I attend church and use the term “Messianic Jew” when dialoguing with non-believing Jews. I am a Jew who believes in the Messiah. Simple. Attaching my Christian testimonial if you are interested to read it.
I’m not. Not in the slightest. I don’t care how you became a moron, I only care that you are one. So I replied:
I have seen all of Mikey’s remarks and, quite frankly, I don’t give a fuck. I’m not offended by profanity in the least. I’m offended by stupidity and authoritarianism, which you show in spades (and so does JD, who is a first class fucking asshole if ever I’ve seen one). If this offends you, I don’t care.
He replied again:
I finally see that the “Mr Ed” TV show concept was correct. A talking horse. And I always thought it was just trick photography.
So far as your failure as a comedian, I would have laughed. Even if you said nothing. Just stood there dumb. That would have sufficed to make me want to laugh at you.
How clever. Then he emails me another one of those idiotic fake conversations with a mythical atheist who is easily defeated by a little girl. I’m sure you know the genre:
I gave this little parable all due consideration:
I can’t imagine what makes you think I’d be the least bit interested in this kind of idiotic bullshit. Save it for people stupid enough to fall for it. In other words, go the fuck away.
And then it got really stupid:
I will leave you alone.
You obviously are allergic to truth and integrity.
Here are my parting shots.
The punchline: All three links are to the Harun Yahya website. Yahya, also known as Adnan Oktar, is a Muslim fanatic and a serious nutball. See this article by Claire Berlinski, daughter of the infamous IDer David Berlinski. This is from an interview with Sean Stone (Oliver Stone’s son, who has also lost his mind). Get ready for some serious crazy:
SEAN STONE: I have a question for you. Do you think. … what role does the Ark of the Covenant play in the Mahdi’s return?
ADNAN OKTAR: That will be presented to the Jews as an evidence to prove that the righteousness of the Mahdi. All the Jews will then confirm that the Mahdi is a fact, that he is true. I mean with that proof the majority of the Jews will become Muslims. That is because there will the original of the manna inside the Ark. Manna preserved inside a container, many holy relics belonging to the Prophet Musa will be discovered inside. The original of the Torah will be discovered and these will of course have a very positive effect on people. I mean these constitute a very strong evidence for a sincere, conscientious person to become a Muslim. But these will be found by the hand of Hazrat Mahdi. I mean they will be found with Hazrat Mahdi being instrumental in their discovery.
SEAN STONE: So inside the Ark, we are told that there is the manna. Manna.. What does that mean exactly. Manna is the food of the gods, right? Doesn’t that come … I mean what is it, is it a liquid or what is it? Does it come from the brain or what is it? Manna?
ADNAN OKTAR: I can show you manna if you like. Is manna here? We have had it in a bottle?
OKTAR BABUNA: It might be at home Master.
ADNAN OKTAR: Let them bring it here to me so that I can show it to Sean. Have you never seen manna?
SEAN STONE: No, never.
ADNAN OKTAR: Let me have it brought here. My Freemason friends brought that for me especially. That is a special substance obtained very difficultly, that can only be presented to high ranking Freemasons. It can only be preserved inside water. If left in a dust form it can pass through the glass and come out, that is the kind of substance it is. It is a strange substance.
SEAN STONE: Did they tell you what it is made of? What is the source of it?
ADNAN OKTAR: It can be produced from vegetables. But the one they mostly emphasize is the one produced from gold. The one given to me was manna obtained from gold.
SEAN STONE: The white gold or the normal gold?
ADNAN OKTAR: Normal gold as far as I know.
