So, I've watched a "program" on which Twatson has appeared. She was "interviewed" on this particularly stupid show, by the Robert W. & Irma M. Arthur-Bascom Professor from the University of Wisconsin Law School. Her name is Ann Althouse, and she seems like a bit of dipshit. The religious kind of dipshit. The right-wing kind of religious dipshit. Since I'm being completely objective here, I wouldn't want to give you some insight to the kind of mind Twatson can't wait to give an interview to. That would be impolite. But, so is implying that President Obama has a lot in common with slaveholders. Here's a snippet of her penetrating analysis of Obama and Boehner and their remarks last night. Apparently, Boehner 'won' in talking to the camera in a way that outshone Obama's ability to stare into a camera and talk:
I'd say Boehner won. Here are the President's remarks. His favorite word was compromise:
I had to stop and think: Is America really about compromise? I thought of the Missouri Compromise. And the Three-Fifths Compromise. Maybe compromise is a dirty word for a good reason!So, you just know the interview's going to be great - we have one scientifically illiterate ideological nutter interviewing another. Oh, why does that matter? The name of the show is "Science Saturday", which has under its belt the prestigious Dr. Michael Behe. This douche, John McWhorter, did the interview gives an overview the estimable Michael Behe and his book of 2007, The Edge of Evilotion. Declaring that he found the book "absolutely shattering. I mean this a very important book."
Get all three of these mental midgets together and I'm sure you'd have an irreducibly competent dribbling contest. And I don't mean basketball (Twatson objects to touching those because of the 'patriarchy'). Anyway, I guess that's enough of a generous introduction to the fucking clown car of stupid heading your way. The show is like 70 minutes long; if you don't have painkillers like I do, wait until you get some. My desk giving me head as long as it did definitely will make one sore - just sayin'.
Twatson continues her lie from Ireland about what Paula Kirby said on her panel. It's been discussed all over hell's creation, and addressed and rebutted publicly by Kirby herself. Twatson goes on to tell us that Paula Kirby said and still believes there is absolutely not a jot of sexism anywhere in the atheism movement. Not one to miss a question, Althouse presses the point if it's because we atheists are so smug and superior being as intellectual as we are that we think we've transcended mere trivialities of equality for the sake of making a good public showing. Or something.
Twatson defends us. We're no more smug than the religious are smug. And we're not more misogynistic than they are either. And Twatson accepted the premise of that she has called for a
Let's get to the science. I was in no hurry to get to it because in the show they were in hurry to talk about anything resembling science that I know. Say, if you are an actual scientist, and I mean a real scientist (lab jockey), can you please e-mail me to let me know how boring you find your "lab" science? Granted, there was another caveat Twatson had with that "friend" of her and a "lab" scientist - apparently, they find it boring as all fuck. She has "plenty of scientist friends" who find just so boring. This comes after her announcement that she lost interest and inspiration in science because her teachers taught her that science is just rote knowledge, but magic is what did it for her. Thank FSM that she magic spurred her on to--according to her CV--get that degree in science she has from Boston University.

Well, that's the introduction. I'll flesh this out more as time goes on, but I have surgery in the morning. So, part 2 will get done when I feel up to thinking again.
While I'm getting poked and prodded, I thought I'd invite two strong, beautiful, and funny women to give you guys their opinion on how Twatson treated the queen of poise and dignity herself, Ms. Stef McGraw.
So, Aratina Cage has demonstrated his outright pusillanimity over at Twatson's place. Upon seeing a disagree in the comment section, instead of taking the slightest effort to show one side's failure of reasoning, he shows his true inner cowardice:
Then I don’t suppose you would like to take your whine over to Pharyngula where it will be roundly dissected and defeated in a couple of minutes?
That's right. Not being in the throes of a mob with the complete inability to think independently on this matter, he invites the person disagreeing with Twatson on Twatson's blog about something Twatson said and did on which she later wrote and published an article on her own blog, he has to tell the commenter in question to go to another blog that has more people on it all of whom write en masse the same kind of nonsense in order for him, Aratina Cage that is, to be able to address an issue on its merits.
Indeed, he needs the support of his fellow retards who by sheer force of numbers and argumentums ad hominem will mount something Aratina Cage considers a good rebuttal. I guess just lobbing the same stupidity he shows at Pharyngfuckyoula where by popularity it's effective at burying what one says in a sea of stupid, he has caught on that his particular brand of stupidity isn't effective without enough numbers to join him.
What a fucking retard.
Translation: I have no argument, and neither does anyone else here, but come to where I hang out because we have a thousand people willing to repeat the same nonsense. Since you can't simultaneously address each person individually, we are right.
