Dr. Isis

Well, I’ve been somewhat engaged, on and off, with a discussion over at the blog of one Dr. Isis. She seems to have had a delayed reaction to Dr. PZ Myers’ crackergate. I must add that while Dr. Isis does have a valid point that what Dr. Myers did was offensive, I feel she rather misses the point he was trying to convey by focusing on only the wafer… Anyway, join the discussion there, or chime in here. I’ll gladly discuss it with you.

    Sadly, like so many others who respond to wafergate with complaints about how it seems childish and offensive to them, Isis neglects to acknowledge that it was done as a protest to the mistreatment of Webster Cook. Myers doesn’t get a hard-on from mistreating pointless and functionally worthless relics that are nonetheless held in high esteem. He does seem to get his jollies from trashing said relics when they are used as a justification for making a person’s life a living hell for some sort of ritual faux pas. That’s pretty much my position on religion in general: let them hold their beliefs unchallenged, but call them out on their bullshit when they start trying to dictate other people’s lives using said beliefs.

    Precisely, hold whatever supernatural beliefs you wish, but when said supernatural beliefs affect me, we shall have problems. I tried pointing that out to her, but I don’t think she quite got the drift of what I was saying. It was a bit crude and loud, but I think someone needs to be as loud or louder and (more) vocal towards the bigots than said bigots are to others.
