The War on Supidity

Children in a doorway in JerusalemImage via Wikipedia"if there were no god, there would be no atheists" That is the quote that I woke up to yesturday morning. I spent most of the day thinking about it and reading tweets in reply to that comment.

The stupidity behind that comment is very evident and can be shown if you just replace the word "god" with "Santa" and "atheist" with "people who don't believe in Santa" as StyxMaker on twitter did.

This however is not the reason for this post, it is just the back story. I am writing because I hate stupidity. I realize that everyone in their lifetime is going to have a stupid moment, that isn't what I am talking about. I am talking about people that even after they are shown a heaping pile of evidence they stick their fingers in their ears and close their eyes. These kind of people will never change their minds about what they believe and they are just dragging down anyone that is willing to listen to them. If it were just adults that were in danger of being stupid it would be one thing, but they are teaching children. At first it is just ignorance on the part of the children that they follow in the footsteps of their parent, but later on when they are presented with the facts of reality they turn and head in to the black hole of stupidity and that is when it is dangerous. Problems like this one occur or this one and pretty soon you realize that your living in a place controlled by stupid people with no immediate future of changing. This is why stupidity much be combated every time it shows itself.
