#TWIS Will Sargon keep acting like Steve Shives? @the_liberalists

Evading critics is a Sargon & Shives specialty, it seems.

Non-believers call on God when faced with a crisis – despite insisting they’re not religious http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/artic…

Sargon, you have made numerous false statements about me and my team, and have refused to acknowledge or correct your errors. Some of your statements about me are likely actionable in UK libel court and I would suggest to you that there’s a point where you can no longer call yourself “liberal” when you routinely smear and distort and wreck the reputations of people you don’t even bother talking to. I think you’re no different at all in this regard from a Steve Shives or an Anita Sarkeesian: you bash people, you spread false narratives out of ignorance, and you do your best to smear, malign, and distort your critics, without ever being willing to talk to them face to face or be confronted on your own ideas by your critics. If it’s all a misunderstanding, I invite you to bring the Red Pill Religion team onto a stream to talk about who I really am, who this team of people is, and what we’re really about. We’re not all Catholic, we’re not all even Christian, and we talk all the time with people, including honorable, decent Atheists, like Coach Red Pill, Academic Agent, Keith Preston, and a ton of other pretty cool Atheists. Before I turn the floor over to these young men–they’re all younger than you I believe–let me note that they’re not all American and not all Catholic. And I know a number of British religious people, none could be here but I can arrange for that as well. The truth is, sir, you DO NOT live in an Atheist country. You in fact live in a country full of religious people, and the religious are rising not falling. Including Christianity, which is undergoing a revival in your own country. The question you therefore need to answer is this: If you truly are a liberal sir, how do you plan on getting along with religious people? Because most of us aren’t particularly interested in being degraded and maligned by you. And degrading and maligning us is the OPPOSITE of liberal, tolerant, and inclusive. So, as Dave the Distributist has asked (and you’ve ignored): WHEN will you grow up enough to TALK TO PEOPLE WHO THINK DIFFERENT FROM YOU SIR? I will ask it again: how can you POSSIBLY consider yourself an open-minded liberal and REFUSE to talk to people you criticize and REFUSE to be confronted on your own beliefs? How ARE you different from Steve Shives or Laci Green or Anita Sarkeesian sir? Except that you’re anti- instead of pro-feminist, how are you truly different? You do EVERYTHING you accuse them of. Or you seem to. When will that change? With that I’ll turn it over to the crowd, and I’ll be back to wrap this up. –Max

Sargon of Akkad and his Phony Christian Crew

By Ghost of Buckley

Sargon of Akkad is someone I’ve been a longtime subscriber of. He makes excellent content every now and again, and he is mostly consistent in how he presents his information. The main problem, of course, is his hatred of religion.

Although Sargon will give lip service to Christian groups that he deems rational (meaning those that agree with his political opinions), he is a man who sneers at religious people. Nowadays, he mostly looks down upon Muslims, who are a popular target of scorn among the right-wingers he hangs out with. While he cloaks this bigotry as concern for Jihadism and encroaching Islamism, in reality, Sargon despises Christianity almost as much. He has said more than once that fundamentalist evangelical preachers are as dangerous as ISIS and that it lauds the destruction of the Anglican Church at the hands of those he might otherwise oppose politically, the social justice warriors. And the less is said about his opinions about Catholicism, the better. Sargon also has shown derogatory attitudes towards traditional African religions and Hinduism in some of his videos.

Sargon’s opinion of religion is not intellectual in nature, but emotional. He is disgusted by the mere mention of God, recoiling like a vampire. The most extreme example of this was in his live reaction to Donald Trump’s inauguration earlier this year. In that livestream, he reacted in an extremely negative way to mere prayer. Let me repeat: he was triggered by mere prayer. This is a common atheist trope, and Sargon exemplified it wholeheartedly.

Now to the main topic of this video: the fake Christians that he hangs out with. It’s no surprise that someone as nasty towards religion as him would have some equally vile friends, one of whom I had the displeasure of meeting. Sargon’s groupies are mainly mooching off their pals’ fame. None of them are particularly insightful or interesting, and they will parrot each others’ opinions like monkeys whenever. Some are a bit more left-wing, some are a bit more right-wing, but they are all equally slimy. The best example of this was Bantu Rhino. I had the “pleasure” of being in a livestream with Bantu one afternoon. Believing it to be the perfect opportunity, I gave a challenge to Sargon, but Bantu Rhino took up the offer. The offer was this: Bantu would argue the theist position and I the atheist position. I consulted my friend, Max Kolbe, on this, and Max was excited to take my place. Little did we know how vile Bantu could be.

The terms of the debate were simple: Bantu would either pick one of five of Edward Feser’s arguments from “Five Proofs of God” and argue for it, or use the research from Dr. Jeffrey Long’s research on Near Death Experiences to argue for the supernatural. We, in turn, would agree to not strawmanning the argument and not bringing up irrelevant points. However, Bantu said that he wanted to include his own arguments. He claims that he studied philosophy of religion, and had created his own argument for God based on the fact that the Universe had God’s divine properties. We refused: use the arguments we presented or don’t play ball. We did not want him gish-galloping or rambling about incoherent nonsense. Plus, to our summation, the argument was terrible. Bantu’s response? To threaten to knock out my teeth. The resulting back and forth ended with everyone just calling off the whole deal. Apparently, when atheists have their integrity or credentials challenged, they see fit to threaten people with violence.

The lesson from this experience is this: if you meet some atheist that you don’t know that claims to have some background in science or philosophy or religion or whatever, be skeptical of him. Atheists have no problem lying about their credentials to make themselves seem more credible because they have no honor.

Letter from Benjamin Franklin to Sargon of Akkad

Proudly ignorant Sargon loves Thomas Paine because Thomas Paine is as pig ignorant and stupid as he is. Benjamin Franklin gave the best answer to this fool when he wrote to tell Thomas Paine what he thought of “The Age of Reason.”
