One of the mysteries of my email is that there are noticeable waves of like content that come through. Right now I’m getting a lot of hate mail that rants and raves about how clever I must think I am … which is definitely not a theme that I’ve been pushing, so all I can assume is that somewhere out there is a website or email chain that is talking about my horrible egotism.
Either that, or they’re all just suddenly feeling very inadequate and are lashing out.
Here’s one that not only accuses me of parading my mighty brains about, but of also pretending to be “‘cool’ and ‘hip'” — but anyone should know that if you use the word ‘hip’ anymore, you aren’t. I’ve made that mistake myself a few times. What’s special about this one, though, is the fatwah envy.
What a cretin you are. Feeling oneself ‘cool’ and ‘hip’ does not make one so. Gee … I’ll bet you are one of the movers-and-shakers of intelligent thought! Sheesh man … all you do is spew the same rhetorical consensus developed by those, who agree among themselves, that they are smarter and more intelligent than anyone else who may disagrees with your strongly held faith in evolution. It follows that since you arrogant simpletons know all there is to know – any other idea must therefore be false. You’re so fuc**** smart it’s laughable! Remember that, at its core, the faith of evolution mandates that a species completely changes into something completely different in both appearance and functioning. Evolution is not adaptation.
Since you are such a hip, highly-intelligent dude, why don’t you also grow a pair? Attacking Christian beliefs is so ho-hum … it’s the popular and safe thing to do nowadays.
You can gain the notoriety you crave by attacking Islam with the same public vigor you’ve shown in your attacks on Christian beliefs! WOW! … just think about it! If you’re not afraid you can actually make CNN with all the agitation you’ll stir! When you publicly attack Islam people may no longer think of you as a boring intellectual-wannabe! Instead of the little sap-headed woosey from Morris you can become, simply, the laughable sap-head from Morris. Wouldn’t it be nice to eliminate the ‘woosey’ title from the description of PZ Meyers?
Think about it! WOW!
Isn’t that sweet? He’s got a completely invalid definition of evolution, and he thinks I ought to mock Islamic beliefs because Christians are so friendly they don’t get dangerous when picked on. And he’s making fun of me because he thinks I’m intelligent!
I do appreciate the “best regards”.
Now this one starts by accusing me of being representative of human stupidity. Then what does he do? Abuses the word “theory” and claims that Richard Dawkins is afraid of Ray Comfort. It’s so damning when someone claims to be an authority on stupidity and then cheerfully brings up Comfort as a hero.
Hi Professor Myers,
I recently came across your science blog and was compelled to share with you a quote from one of the greatest minds of all time.
Albert Einstein said, “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”
If you aren’t catching his view let me help you. He’s talking about you.
I also wanted to write a word on your “friend” Richy Dawkins. He came across as ridiculous in Expelled the movie. When he was sitting in the theater I bet he was red in the face with humiliation. He’s also scared to face Ray Comfort in a debate. If he was certain of his argument at all, he whould be more than willing to except the invitation and crush Ray. But no, he knows that there isn’t a single piece of evidence. That’s why it’s called the THEORY (def. contemplation or speculation) of Evolution. So he pulls some $100,000 for his charity bogus. How much did Ben Stein give him? Or was his embarassment at no charge? “Extra Terrestrials sowed the human seeds on Earth,” IS HE REALLY SERIOUS!
Hang on…no cheerful signoff? I’m crushed. Devastated, even.
