He's really a very messed up person...in real life too, it would appear, if his Twitter feed is anything to go by.

He spends half his time tweeting prescriptions for Jesus, how we all need Jesus, ask me how Jesus turned my life around, would you like to know Jesus?  etc., and the other half the time complaining about how lonely and shitty his life is.

I’m not really surprised he has a lonely, shitty life. He’s so angry and hate-filled that no one wants to be near him. Although, to his credit, I’m not sure which one came first. Is he nasty and mean because he’s lonely, or is he lonely because he’s nasty and mean?

Good question.  All I know is that if I were Jesus I wouldn't want this guy doing any public service announcements for me, since it seems like all Jesus has done is make him angry and lonely and bitter. I found myself this close to feeling sorry for him, something I didn't think I was capable of feeling towards him.

Maxwell started a thread crying about being banned at Christian News Network...of course he posted it at Lady Checkmate's channel.

They don’t seem to understand what a “troll” is. The definition of a “troll” is not “anyone whom I disagree with.”

To be a troll, you have to show up at sites intending to anger and upset people, behave disrespectfully, and say deliberately inflammatory things, often things you don’t actually agree with. No one at CNN is in the slightest bit disrespectful or rude. We just call people out for saying stupid, insane, and demonstrably false things. The fact that it upsets (g)you to be proven wrong over and over again does not make me a “troll.” I can’t help your lack of maturity and self-control.

They are all very good at re-painting a situation to make it look like they are persecuted and oppressed.  In order for them to do that most effectively, they have to stick us all in a box and label the box a certain way.  I'm sure lots of the people that battle them over there are moderate Christians (i.e. Catholics, Lutherans, Episopalians, Methodists, etc) and might well be conservative on the political scale and are perfectly well behaved on any forum they go to, but Checkmate and company are always going to see them as atheistic "alt-left trolls".

I think I might have found Lady Checkmate's hero:

https://www.cnsnews.com/author/dan-gainor

(CNS News is similar to Christian News Network, except they seem to focus more on politics and less on religion)

If you look at his last dozen or so stories, they all start with the title "Alt-Left Insanity", and basically consist of him poking fun at various things some liberals have said or done, as if to say "that's what all liberals think!"

I was thinking about posting some of them on FSTDT, but they're pretty damn long....maybe I'll try to condense them somewhat, I dunno.

I think they have the same idea....that if you say “alt-left” enough times it will catch on and other people will start to use it. My reaction to that is to point out to them every chance you get that nobody says it except them.  Kind of like when Amos and WorldGoneCrazy say “a-theist”.  Or when WGC uses his “deathscorts”, “bro-choicers” and so on.

Listing a number of arguments and expecting a rebuttal of every one of them is called a 'Gish Gallop'. All of these arguments have been thoroughly debunked.

Easy to say, so where's your proof! Come up with the proofs and I'll come over to your camp! Anyone can make a foolish and unfounded statement as you have here, so back it up with some proof, please.

Yes, please do answer all of Reason2012’s arguments in own words, 500 words or less, complete sentences.

I am glad I had a chance to read that thread before the imperial hand of Christian News Network shows up and censors 90% of the comments out.

Although the only people losing their shit are the Christians, as usual.  Well, most of them.

That thread is still going strong and the bigots are getting absolutely humiliated by the people who understand science.  This CAN'T last.  The Christian News Network censor is going to crash the party anytime and go on a deleting and banning spree.  I'm going to save this thread while I can...Skywatcher57 is a moron of incredible magnitude, and whoever this Richard Forrest is, I wish I could bottle his responses because they're so well-detailed and presented (although he's showing a tendency to lose his temper, which I hope doesn't result in him being banned...God knows this place doesn't need much of an excuse to do that...)

On the same thread - it looks like Reason2012 has slightly modified his comment to make my Carbon-14 response seem off topic and not relevant. His mentioning "in the air" and rewording of the last sentence seems to have changed.

Good catch.  He eliminated the reference to carbon, so now the comment makes no sense. 

"7) The Earth was not supposedly formed when the imagined big bang happened. After a few hundred thousands of years, with a half life of 5,730 years, there should be none left, yet it’s found in abundance in “ancient” fossils."

There should be none OF WHAT left?  None of anything?  Is he saying everything has a half-life of 5,370 years?

I think I'll even call him out on that....
