Victor's Lame Excuse
It is amusing to see that the cult of Victor continues to behave the same way they always have, even in the absence of the "gnus" that he was so certain were the source of the problem. How can this be? Well, obviously it's our fault.
Look, it was like pulling teeth to get me to do the banning I did. But the problem is that the kind of atheism that theists on this site were most likely to deal with once I posted something was the hard-core New Atheist variety. The best atheist responses to most issues come from what I would call the sensible atheist viewpoint, and Jeff Lowder is perhaps one of the best exemplars of that viewpoint. Theists on this site get so used to responding to gnus that they are more likely to respond to non-gnus in the same way as they do with gnus, and I really think some of the theists here would behave better if they weren't so used to responding to gnus.Here's some news for you, Victor. The best theist responses don't come from you or any of your cultists, either. If all I wanted was to hear the best philosophical positions, I wouldn't have gone to Dangerous Idea in the first place. There are other sources of information of that sort available to me. But I've been learning other things from my time there, too. And I must say, it's been an interesting journey.
Did you honestly think your cultists would change their stripes simply because we're not there any longer? Just get rid of the devils in your midst, and the jerks will no longer have the excuse "the devil made me do it"? A jerk is what it is. We didn't make them who they are. And we certainly aren't responsible for their behavior. Not before we arrived, not while we were there, and not after we've gone.
