It's incredible how one person can sit there arguing after making statements that suggest a level of stupidity that makes Amos Moses look like Galileo.

Basically, I can't even.  Just go here and read for yourself.

He keeps trying to corner everyone with not having some conclusive gene to back up their claims.

Things are tensing up in that discussion and the Christian News Network censor is probably getting ready to clean house, so here's a snapshot of things as they stand, pre-censorship:

Essentially, the "argument" was like this:  (or at least the parts of it that I could understand)

Guest:  Everything you say about gender dysphoria is wrong because they haven't found a "trans gene"!

Me:  I never said there was a "trans gene" found.

Guest:  But there's no "trans gene" so you're wrong!

Me:  But I just said.....(etc.)


I guess because science hasn't proven it's genetic, (but hasn't DISproven it either, mind you) he thinks it doesn't exist??  I don't know, I was having a hard time understanding his line of thought, if you can call it that.

I have always said Guest Verified was a game player.  And here we see him playing one of his games: he's trying to trap everyone into the false logic that goes something like "if a trans gene cannot be found, then you have no argument".

And he should make clear why a claim like that holds water first (spoiler alert: it doesn't) and should be called out every time he tries to drag people kicking and screaming back to it.

Mind you he also called Amos "brilliant" in this thread, so again, serious responses to him are a judicial matter.

Yeah, it was a good thing I wasn't drinking anything when I read that or I would have spat it out all over my computer.

"YetAnotherSockAccount" called him out for it pretty well already, LOL.

I will never understand why you guys get so worked up over a server and make all these plans and such over what looks to me like little more than Breitbart wearing very thin sheep's clothing.

Presumably you originally joined a website called "Fundies Say the Darndest Things" because you were either annoyed or amused by the rantings of evangelicals.

So you must have SOME idea.

Not really worked up. More like getting a view into how other people think. A little break from the daily routine. And no planning is done just s a side channel to share stories and pontificate with like minded souls. Unlike KingOfRhye, I have been known to be drinking coffee while reading some of these remarks.

Now I want to say something about a Supreme Court ruling to him, and see if he loses his mind.

The problem is that is not in the Constitution. There are supreme court rulings yes, but the supreme court has been wrong before when it came to former slaves having standing to sue in court(Dredd Scott) upholding segregation(Plessy vs. Ferguson) and japanese interment camps during WWII(Kormatsu).

Preventing displays like 10 commandments goes against "free exercise of" in the first amendment.

You know something? it wasn't funny. It's not funny because there are people out there who actually worship satan and kill people and animals in sacrifices in secret ceremonies. It's really no laughing matter but this atheist doesn't care. Satanists like new born babies the most because they consider their souls the most pure.
So if I come off sounding a little hostile is because of people like that.

My sense of humor ranges from gallows to literally the worst.

And yeah, admittedly, it is rather hypocritical - but it does seem like a lot of effort to put into one fundamentalist echo chamber. Heck, this is the first place I ever heard of Disqus.

Disqus is everywhere, you just need to come out from under your rock, ya cracker.  Though, I think it might not be as popular a general talky platform as, say, Reddit.  Still, tonnes of sites use it, like TorrentFreak.
