But first, I'll mention that the atheists in both of yesterday's examples refuse to admit error. That happens frequently, probably because they hate Christians so much, we cannot be allowed to be right, and God forbid (heh!), they cannot be wrong. (Just ask Norman. I'm wrong or lying, and he's right. Just ask him.) It's against the atheist code for an Xtian to be right, you betcha.
And now for something somewhat different. (Are these bits with the "highlighter" setting doing anything for you?)
I'll bet that atheists are glad that they get few, if any, of the sentimental religious stuff in their e-mail. I get quite a bit, and delete most of it (you'll see why in a minute). The rest of you, don't run off. This lesson in bad logic can be useful to everyone. (I wrote about the blackmail aspects of this over three years ago.)
It opens with this:
If I don't get this back, I will know you really didn't read it.
You know that I didn't read it how? If you don't get this back, all you know is that you didn't get it back. Don't go putting an argument from silence on it.
Some people needs lessons in thinking. Probably a product of American public schools.
After I cut out the poems and things, it concluded with,
What miracle is that, Poindexter? Will AOL and Bill Gates share their fortune? No, that's a different e-mail. This one is worse, it turns the gospel of Christ into a superstition or wish fest. But also, it is a great demonstration of bad logic.
Theresa 's Prayer cannot be deleted.
REMEMBER to make a wish before you read the prayer. That's all you have to do. There is nothing attached. Just share this with people and see what happens on the fourth day...
Sorry you have to forward the message, but try not to break this, please.
Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. Read the prayer below.
I hate it when "believers" act like that. If anyone wants to pass along something nice, then do it without the conditions or demands. And especially without the superstitions, capice?
