I don’t think John Loftus knows how to read

John, in his use berating and disgusting tone, has weighed in to say, one more time, that he has quit. Yup. This time, he’s really done because no one listens to him.

Oh, and as he was moving out the door, he put another lie on the table:

 Joel is so ignorant he doesn’t even realize his Christianity is different than the Christianities of the past because of the attacks of the skeptics.

Let’s see… at least one time, and on the very post John links to, I’ve said,

Now, for me, I’ve seen Christianity grow, and count the New Atheists (even those whom, um, are tag alongs) as sort of like prophetic figures who are pushing us to greater heights.

Now, John has admitting lying in the past, among other things, so I don’t put anything past him, but come on… even this is just stupid on his part.

Oh, and I’m not ‘majoring’ in anything at the Master’s level, John. I’m writing my thesis on mimetic criticism while writing a book on mimetic criticism which is neither exegesis nor interpretation. I’m not sure where you went to school at, but they should have taught you better, buddy.

I’m beginning to think that John is so deluded, that he has started to become unconvinced even in his own arguments. That’s why he’s quitting. Because he is convincing himself that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

  1. Correction to a previous comment I made. I didn’t note that you were speaking of Christianity growing, as in becoming more mature. Though I’d not necessarily call New Agers “more mature,” and I’d also disagree that Christianity is necessarily becoming more “mature” as a whole. Only in some portions. In others, like the Southern Hemisphere, it appears that inerrancy and Christian urban myths, and hatred of witches and gays as well as creationism and end times preaching are continuing to spread.
