So what do you call a group of people that thinks it's really special because its god told them so?

Holy walking mackeral! Atheists don't believe that mankind is anything ultra-special in this universe, unlike the religious who insist that a supernatural being made us special and plunked us down on this little rock just to worship said being. Now, who is it again with delusions of grandeur?

Something tells me that bipper may have delusions of adequacy.

And when someone thinks they're being infinitely clever despite all evidence to the contrary, we call them deluded.
Hey, Bipper - explaining the joke kills it.

You claim to have a personal, loving relationship with the omnipotent, omniscient creator of reality. You claim that he speaks to you and makes your life better while allowing millions of children to starve to death.
You claim that in the vastness of the Universe, humanity is somehow special, even though it occupies an unimaginably small fraction of the Universe.
You are the one who claims that he will live forever in an eternal paradise, even though we have clear evidence that thought, consciousness and memory is directly linked to the activity of our physical brains.
You my friend are the one with the delusion of grandeur.

Fortunately, it's not a very good example of it.

You don't know the definition of irony, to start. You also don't know the definition of satire. And it appears you don't know the definitions of atheism or \"delusion of grandeur.\"
In short, you don't know shit.

When a group of people believe a collection of wacko, ancient fairy tales are true and offer them salvation to eternal paradise, we call them Christians, and we pity their sad, deluded state.

I prefer delusional ones who don´t bother in my business than Ann Coulter, for example.

I love that sticker. Can I get one?

Oh, and calling someone a prick isn't very Christian, now is it?
3/6/2007 5:08:14 PM
That's really a rather poor rendering of an Ichthyostega. Then again, I guess you can't expect too much from fundies -- imagine if they'd had to try something really unusual like a Tiktaalik (or, going the other way, an Ambulocetus).

And when a group of people refuse to educate themselves on people and beliefs they don't like and instead resort to strawmen and parodies? What do we call them? Ostriches?

Jezebel's Evil Sister,
Gah, now that Weird Al song is stuck in my head. \"You're suffering from delusions of adequacy... you're pitiful...\"
3/6/2007 6:38:34 PM
You fail at making a funny.
3/6/2007 6:43:44 PM
My goodness that's clever. You advance to fourth grade!
3/6/2007 8:25:13 PM
Neither ironic, nor satirical, but nice try.
