Trans-Christianity: Yer Doin' It Wrong

Post by UncleBob » Tue May 29, 2018 11:21 am

I want to be clear: I am not anti-Christian. The problem is that you are not practicing it like I like correctly.

Oh sure, Christians have defined and practiced Christianity for all these years but I don't like it you obviously don't understand it and need outsider help to do so. In short, we need to completely redefine it so my irrelevant views of it my version of it and the world can be included in your Sunday School. Its only fair, you know, as I have no evidence for it, after all. It is, in essence, trans-Christianity; something more than Christianity as you could ever understand it.

BTW--yer welcome. I assume you are all thanking me and my obvious genius in redefining your Christianity.

Now, to the revelation (See how I can use your termi..terma...fancy words?): Jesus was a big chicken.

You need to include my weird-a$$ shrewd views in your Sunday School from now on, until the end of time. Why? Evidence? It's right there in front of you! D'uh! Just carry the 2 and you got it!

You obviously can't understand your own Christianity. But, from now on, if you want any funding, you need to include Chicken Jesus in your classroom. Equal time. You don't have to believe it, just teach the controversy.

Q.E.Cluck!

Yes. You often ignore the point and resort instead to pejoratives. Its called an ad hominem fallacy.

My understanding based on collating several concurrent threads:

UB is attempting to demonstrate the absurdity of the argument that we should teach “creation science” in science classrooms because it’s only fair to have “alternative views” presented (whether they are good science or not).

If I understand him, he’s created an absurd “alternative view” of the gospel: i.e. “Jesus is a big chicken.” (This is not unlike the “Flying Spaghetti Monster” hypothesis.) And, he’s requiring us to teach this alongside the biblical gospel because, after all, we must present alternative views.

It’s an example of reductio ad absurdum, if I understand him correctly, offered in a pique of frustration with the course of several other threads.

Do I read you correctly, UB?

Normally when you have to explain the joke, it kinda deflates the humor of it.

Except for Johnny Carson, who could alway milk a laugh out of a joke that fell flat.

You should try out your material on your academic friends, Bob. They might share you sense of humor.
