The Destructive Nature of Narcissism

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

This is an article that I was going to write for a long time. Originally, I thought I could make it work over at Piltdown Superman and use the material in a discussion about atheists and anti-creationists, but it was not a good fit over there. This was inspired by an article that had been in my e-book reader for a long time and is linked later on.


Narcissistic types can be annoying but also dangerous in extreme cases. Secular materials can be helpful, but the real problem is spiritual.
Cropped from Echo and Narcissus by John William Waterhouse, 1903
Is it just my imagination, or are people becoming more and more self-absorbed nowadays? We hear about people who are overly fond of themselves and are often referred to as narcissistic. The word came from an ancient Greek myth where Narcissus was excessively handsome and fond of himself, then fell in love with his own reflection.

Narcissism is a personality disorder that takes many forms. The word is bandied about far too casually, describing people from world leaders to anyone else that may be disliked. As with any disorder (or even a physical illness), symptoms may vary. Most likely, we have all encountered people with some degree of narcissistic personality traits, but when it's a full-blown disorder — Katie, bar the door! Those people can be psychotics (I am using that word deliberately) and possibly dangerous in extreme cases.

The web is full of creepy people who put their wickedness on display, as well as some wonderful folks I regret not knowing in the real world. Not only do atheists frequent display narcissism, but their problem is probably compounded by autism in many cases. I know of some atheists who think that it is their duty to refute the "st00pid dumb creatards" through ridicule and misrepresentation. 

One is so narcissistic, he plays at believing God exists but has actually made an idol with which he is comfortable — which is certainly not the God of the Bible! In fact, he consigns people to Hell because they do not believe in his version of global warming, an old earth, the Big Bang, evolution, and in my case, just for existing. Narcissists will tell you how you are intellectually and/or morally inferior. When you prove your points, they deny the evidence even when it's right in front of them. Expect retaliation and childish behavior as well as further attempts at manipulation. This particular cyberstalker has stated that he intends to destroy me. That'll be the day!

Before continuing, I want to discuss the article that prompted this one. It is entirely secular, and was written for people who are in relationships with narcissists. It may be helpful to some people, and it can be helpful to view these sidewinders from a distance. (There is one strong profanity in it, but I'll allow that it's also humorously creative and descriptive.) If you want to read it, click on "20 Diversion Tactics Highly Manipulative Narcissists, Sociopaths And Psychopaths Use To Silence You". Notice how narcissists try to isolate you from friends and associates, attempting to bolster their egos by having them shun you.

As usual, secular sources disregard the spiritual nature of humanity. Psychology is rooted in atheistic evolutionary approaches, so no wonder it's more like a goat rodeo than an actual science. Sure, trained counselors can give some degree of help because they know how to listen and ask probing questions. The real problem with narcissism is spiritual. In a word: sin. In another word: pride. I have encountered a couple of individuals who hate the God of the Bible and who love themselves so much, I am convinced that they are under heavy demonic influence. Narcissists despise biblical authority and the fact that they need to submit to God, not the false gods they've made.

We have to be on guard against the manipulations of narcissists. Not only can they be emotionally damaging, they try to take as much of our time as we'll allow (note how atheists and other evolutionists hound Christians and creationists). Ultimately, we need to remember that we are children of the living God, and that we can show unbelievers that they need to humble themselves and repent before Jesus.

Climate Change Activists Reject Reason

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

While the majority of climate change activists have little or no knowledge of science and "think" with their emotions, there are scientists involved. Apparently some of them are feeling lower than a snake's belly in a wagon wheel rut. They have some blamestorming to do, but they're looking in the wrong direction.

Climate change alarmists are upset because we are not doing enough to save the world. Their own presuppositions and denial of truth are part of their problem.

As I pointed out in "Climate Change and Ignored Truth", secularists have a passel of presuppositions, including materialism, an old earth, evolutionism, and if there is a God, he is not in control. They appeal to emotions, not facts or logic, and trot out pawns like Greta "How Dare You!" Thunberg to throw kerosene on the fire. (Some of us don't take none too kindly to manipulation, you savvy?) We see that their predictions over the years have all failed, and some are so far away that those who made the alarmist claims will all be taking dirt naps before they can be criticized.

When people get all het up, their emotions interfere with their cognitive abilities. I have seen tinhorns who want to quirt folks into submission through ridicule and calling everyone "liars" who disagree with leftist climate change cult's views. I mentioned how these activists are lamenting that people are not doing enough to save the planet. Step back, Sally, and think about it: we've been told many times that the end is near, and we have also been told that it's already too late. So, we give leftists control of our lives, raise taxes, bring on a totalitarian state — and the world's climate will suddenly be changed and we can all sing the "Happy Happy Joy Joy" song? Not hardly!

Atheists and evolutionists pretend that there is scientific illiteracy when biblical creationists deny fish-to-fool evolution, but I lack belief that they complain about the scientific illiteracy exhibed to climate change extremists. Mayhaps it's because they're on the same materialistic team? Asking for a friend.

For that matter, there are people who may be brilliant, but when it comes to evidence for the Bible, creation, and God's existence, their minds turn to buckets of warm waste. While they use logic every day to one extent or another, it's like most logic circuits in their brains were deactivated. This hatred of God is what we read about in Romans 1:18-23; they are unrighteously suppressing the truth.

I keep mentioning how the climate change cult is primarily from leftist politics. But we need to go a bit deeper. You are highly unlikely to find people who believe in the inerrancy, inspiration, and authority of the Bible to get involved in political and cultural positions that are contrary to the Word of God. Ponder that for a spell, pilgrim.

Evidence that indicates the leftist science approaches have serious flaws are ignored or refuted by the equivalent of, "That's not true! You're a liar! I am a god and I consign you to my version of Hell!" Then they label us "science deniers" (which is also hilariously fallacious) for rejecting their cultic views, play the victim card, and then scream into the wind. God is our Creator and has a plan, but materialists deny this and then wonder why they are filled with despair. The atheistic worldview only has despair to offer, and lacks the necessary preconditions of the human experience. When they say that something is right or wrong, they are denying their materialist and Darwinist presuppositions and are standing on the biblical worldview — beginning at creation.
You can do a simple act to help an environmental scientist: offer him or her a shoulder to cry on. In Science Magazine, Timothy A. C. Gordon, Andrew N. Radford, Stephen D. Simpson implored readers, “Grieving environmental scientists need support.” They’re depressed. Why? Humans are not doing enough to save the planet from climate change. Not even Darwin can help them.
. . .
Yes; the loss of ability to think coherently is becoming painfully evident. If they were consistent materialists and Darwinists (which is practically a job requirement in science these days), they would think logically, and figure that Darwin’s theory just says Stuff Happens, so tough luck. Planets come and go; life rises and goes extinct; that’s just the way of things. Nothing is good or bad. It just is.
To read the entire article, click on "Comfort Your Local Dogmatic Scientist".

ADDENDUM: I forgot about 4 John 7:14: "If anyone rejects current man-made climate change views, this is the unpardonable sin and that person is condemned to Hell." Looks like works-based salvation is real after all.

The Left Hates Us

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

It is not just a matter of difference of opinion on national policies, government, and so on. Leftists support all sorts of things that Republicans, Conservatives, Christians, and others promote. Instead, they advocate abortion, open borders, scaring children with climate change doomsday fake news, actively oppose Christianity, and so much more.


Leftists hate President Trump and his supporters. You do not have to like the man, but their actions to destroy him threaten the future of our country.
Made at PhotoFunia
Leftists were becoming aggressive and even violent toward Republicans and Conservatives back when George W. Bush was the American president. Campaign signs were stolen out of yards, vehicles with stickers were vandalized, people were harassed by leftist total strangers. Things settled down a bit when Caliph B. Hussein Obama was playing emperor for eight years (well, except for gender confusion and assassination of police officers, things were just wonderful with him in power).

Now that Donald J. Trump is the president, violence is astonishing to say the least. Take a gander at the news (not the fake news, they do not cover it) and you can easily read articles on people being beaten for wearing MAGA hats. Indeed, college students are afraid to admit that they're Republicans! This is from the party of "tolerance". Sure, they believe in free speech — as long as it meets their leftist political and cultural standards from the Ministry of Truth. Although leftists flat-out lie about this, there has been a coup in place to remove Trump from office right after he was elected.

When Mitt(ens) Romney was running for president, he made a good point regarding concerns that he is a Mormon: He did not define his run for office by his religion, nor was he running for pastor. Instead, he was running to be the president of all the people. Although Donald Trump has moral failings that have been brought into the spotlight through the internet (most of his indiscretions, incidentally, we accepted when he was a Democrat), he became president for all the people. This includes leftists and other poltroons who hate him.

I was not enthusiastic about voting for Trump, and chose against him in the Primary Elections. But he was a far better choice than Shrillary "Box Wine" Clinton, you betcha. Leftist news sources minimize his accomplishments (if they report on them at all), and spend more airtime and print bashing him than any other president has experienced. They hate him with a passion, even to the point of destroying our republic to have him removed from office under demonstrably false pretenses. Some tinhorns only choose leftist sources and biased reporting (such as the misrepresented transcript) so they can justify their hatred of Trump. 

They hate us. One leftist rag was furious with Bill Maher for being somewhat civil to a Republican. That's "wrong" by their "standards". Keep your ears and eyes open, and you will see leftists attacking people who support or simply voted for Trump. We are racists, homophobes (an appallingly stupid word used to provoke negative emotions), science deniers, and all sorts of other things. Unfortunately, people are unable or unwilling to use rational thought and "think" with their emotions. 

You don't have to adore Trump. He has flaws, and despite leftist falsehoods, his supporters admit that he is not a god. (Christians, it is your biblical duty to pray for him.) This attempt to stage a coup and have him removed from office is a great threat to this constitutional republic. I have two articles that I'd be much obliged if you'd read. First, Chris Stigall discusses how leftists are ramping up to attack Trump voters (I think it's an attempt to intimidate us into silence, leftist so that, you know). This is at "SNL Punts on Trump, Attacks His Voters Instead". Second, take a look at the very serious article by David P. Goldman, "It's Time for Every American Patriot to Rally Around Trump: The American Republic Is at Stake".

More Atheistic Propaganda from Dawkins

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Seems that Dr. Clinton Richard Dawkins got himself another atheopathy book on the market, which got the hands at the Darwin Ranch on the prod. Rusty Swingset ordered overtime at the propaganda mill with everybody on standby, and he went with another publisher.


Richard Dawkins has a new book of the same old propaganda for an incoherent worldview. He inadvertently proves God right again.

In a podcast of The Briefing by Dr. Richard Albert Mohler, we learned that Dawkins is inadvertently proving God right again (Romans 1:18-23). If you study on it a spell, you'll see that words like should, ought, and the like imply ethical and moral claims. According to atheism and evolutionism, we are just rearranged pond slime reacting to our chemical impulses. He has no right to criticize Christians or creationists because, in his fundamentally flawed worldview, we are born this way and cannot help it.

Actually, his rants do not contain valid logic. He tacitly admits God exists and simply gives excuses for hating God, who gave him life. Science is impossible without God, and so is logic. When atheists and evolutionists make moral claims, they are admitting that their atheistic worldview is irrational and incoherent, and are standing on the biblical worldview!

Ironically, his disciples use fallacious arguments against "religious" people making money, but this sidewinder is pulling in the grotzits from bad atheism. It pays to confirm biases and reinforce bigotry,  right, Dick?

I have a couple of things for you. First an article, "More of Dawkins’ same old tired rhetoric: Review of Outgrowing God by Richard Dawkins" from Matthew Cserhati at Creation Ministries International. Next, the podcast that inspired this article. You can read the transcript, listen online, or download the MP3. Click on The Briefing, Monday, October 7, 2019. The second and third segments are what we're looking for.

Atheists and Misrepresentation

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Some time ago, I wrote an article about the proper use of debates, which drew heavily on what I had learned from Dr. James R. White. At this writing, he has done 169 formal debates. One thing he emphasizes is that to do this, both sides have to know what the other represents so they can discuss things properly.


Atheists and evolutionists frequently misrepresent Christians and creationists. Dr. James R. White points out some of these things. Christians need to be on guard against both receiving and giving them.
Screenshot from The Dividing Line, September 3, 2019 (linked below)
There is a section of The Dividing Line that I would like you to see. Dr. White is telling how he represents the other side correctly (at the moment, he was talking to a Mohammedan). That is an excellent set-up for the next segment where he is (if I understood this correctly) going to debate an atheist. This atheist wrote a post where he makes fifteen assertions that parts of the Bible had material that were inserted deceptively.

What he is doing (and what the Mohammedan was doing earlier) is focusing on textual variances. Christian scholars know about these things, and they are usually in footnotes of Bibles (such as, "...older manuscripts omit..." or similar). Claiming sneakiness from ancient Christians without evidence is not only illogical, it also makes him the liar. (I know of tinhorns who do the same thing: assert that someone is deceptive without offering evidence, then claiming that they "proved" someone is lying by irrationally invoking the fallacy of repeated assertion.) The atheist that White is discussing would do well to read "100 Alleged Bible Contradictions Answered" at the Domain for Truth.

Seeing this sort of thing helps Christians and especially creationists be on guard against harassment and misrepresentation by atheists and evolutionists. Also, we have to be mindful of our own approaches, avoiding "Gotcha!" tricks and so forth. We are not in this to glorify ourselves through our rhetorical skills, but to spread the truth and to glorify God.


The part I would like you to watch begins at the 25 minutes 49 seconds mark. I'm only asking a few minutes from you, from the Mohammedan and into the discussion about the atheist. You may want to watch Dr. White address each of the fifteen items, but I am not asking for that much.

ADDENDUM: Sometimes atheists pretend to be Christians, but you can tell from their misuse of the Bible and their attitudes that they are unbelievers in sheep's clothing. Ladies and gentlemen, for your edification and amusement, let me present Haywire the Criminal Cyberstalker (the crowd goes wild). Hailing from London in the UK, he stalks and harasses people, especially intelligent people, who do not agree with his narrow, convoluted, bigoted views. Although he hates the God of the Bible and rejects the authority of Scripture, and he does not understand either, he uses them in his idolatrous pursuit of internet validity. He also has a habit of proving his critics right. Let's have a big round of applause for Haywire the Criminal Cyberstalker:

Weasel Words and the Gay Gene Study

A recent study affirms previous results that there is no gay gene. Materialists still attempt to use genetic determinism to deny the Creator and dehumanize people.Scientific news confirmed previous scientific news. Namely, there is no such thing as a gay gene. People who claim they were "born this way" can make all kinds of explanations, but genetics is not supporting their lifestyles. The very big new study had scientists and tinhorn news reporters dealing from the bottom of the deck, however.

The saying applies here: torture the evidence enough and it'll confess to anything. This study on homosexuality was about behavior, not orientations. Conflicting items from the report were cited, but we see that many genes are associated with homosexual behavior — and with other things as well. One even is a part of the sense of smell, so that's a good indication that the results do not pass the sniff test. An important part of the research tends to be neglected by leftists: causation and correlation are two completely different things.

Materialists seek to deny that we are created by God, and are instead slaves to our biochemical impulses. Added to this is the dehumanizing aspect of genetic determinism. Environmental factors are thrown into the trail mix by leftists, but that concept is a red herring and should be examined separately. Weasel words dominate science news reporting in an effort to further leftist hijacking science for their own ends.

There are two important things for your serious consideration. The first is an article:

Largest genetic study ever done on the subject shows no conclusive evidence genes influence homosexual behavior.
There is no “gay gene,” a big new study concludes. The results of a large genome-wide association study (GWAS) study were published in Science today. Some scientists, however, continue to try to tease the data for some evidence of a predisposition to homosexual behavior.
To read the rest, click on "Homosexuals Can’t Blame Their Genes". The next item is The Briefing podcast by Dr. Albert Mohler. You can listen online, download the MP3, or read the transcript of the first two segments. For this, click on "Part 1, Is Homosexuality Genetic? New Research Reveals an Old Story; Part 2, The Impulse to Ground Homosexuality in Biological Terms Is Driven By Morality, Not Just Science". Bonus article for Christians from May, 2018: "Regarding 'Sexual Orientation', Evil Desire, and the Question of Moral Neutrality".

Nuke Mars, Start a War?

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

This article will confuse the Ministry of Truth, Fake News Division because it is a mixture of parody and real news. Old Joe Biden still has the desire to be president, but he is not showing intellectual acumen. If his errors happened to a Republican, the media would be all over it like chickens on June bugs.

Joe Biden does not show a firm grasp of reality at times. This is partly news and partly parody. Will it also be predictive?
Using a public domain photo of Joe Biden, I ran it through PhotoFunia, then added some text of my own
For example, he said that as Vice President, he met with survivors of the Parkland school shooting, which happened after he left office. Officials said he mixed up this one with another shooting.  He doesn't know when the Kennedy and King assassinations happened. Seriously, Democrats, are you so desperate to simply win an election that you want him in the most powerful position in the world?

The other real-but-looks-like-parody news is that Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, wants to launch nuclear missiles to Mars. He thinks it will help make Mars a place we can colonize, but scientists think it would be mostly pointless.

Those items were real. Here's where I get creative.
— Washington, DC, August 26, 2019

After learning of Elon Musk's desire to launch nuclear missiles to Mars, Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden was aghast.

"We're in no position to provoke the Martians. Earth barely survived Martian invasions of the past, like in 1897 and when I was a Senator in 1953". Biden is referring to the H.G. Wells novel that was serialized in 1897 and the movie starring Gene Barry that was released in 1953. When asked about the 2005 movie by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, Biden sharply replied, "That's a movie. Do you think I'm stupid?"
I wouldn't be surprised if my parody turned out to be somewhat predictive, as the former Vice President and Senator has a tenuous grasp of reality at times. By the way, the words senile and senator have the same root.
