Creationist Fan of VenomFangX Videos Kills Woman, Himself

Do people remember this exchange in the comments of my apparently most anguish-inducing post, "Ken Ham's Petting Zoo Opens to Shut Minds."

Rene, here's the kind of ugly, smug, ignoramous mentality you and your Creation Museum are turning out:
Satan Created Evolution.Proud of yourself?

[The link is now broken - for reasons I'll give below - but it was to a video by VenomFangX entitled "Satan Created Evolution."]

Rene' said...
All, If you had no vitriol in your heart for religion or Christianity in particular, you would have reported only that --in your opinion Mr. ham is wrong -- and not used such harsh terms that make you the intolerant crowd. You know the type, the ones who ridiculed Mr. Darwin for his theory. Apparently, Mr. Ham is in the same boat as Darwin, he has committed sacrilege against your god -- you. There is not and never will be any conclusive proof that would prove evolution it is nothing more than a theory, requiring faith. Conversely, I will never convince you that God is real and He sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we may spend eternity with Him. God would never use categorical proof, for there would be no faith, God, for whatever reason, needs us to be faithful not convinced. I envy you --- in my opinion -- yours is the greater faith. To believe that life sprang from nothing -- without the help of the Creator, that requires more faith than I could ever possess. I know that your god, you, should be very pleased with yourselves. Rene


And blah, blah, blah. Well, good old VenomFangX has apparently yanked some of his videos because a fan of his named Anthony Powell - who also posted his anti-atheist, anti-evolution rants on You Tube, calling atheists "non-human" and such - recently killed a female student and himself. She reportedly was not his girlfriend and rebuffed his repeated sexual advances.

Her name was Asia McGowan and she was an aspiring dancer and actress.

Anthony Powell was a bully who posted videos on You Tube about how "evolution is a lie" and "women should be submissive to their man."

Then there is the Sunday School teacher who killed Sandra Cantu (her grandfather had the nerve to bitch about what the investigation was doing to the "image" of his church, and now she's up for a rape charge, too - yuck!).

The creationist who stabbed to death a man who argued for evolutionary theory, and the plethora of parents lately who either killed their kids through "exorcism" or by praying over them instead of taking them to a doctor.

Rene, anything to say? Michael Ruse, do you have something to add? Being ignorant is romantic - right? Salt of the earth. Kind of like how being poor is "exciting."

Ken Ham is not only wrong, he is dangerous. VenomFangX is not only wrong, he is dangerous. Anthony Powell was not only wrong - he was tragically dangerous, because he didn't have to take an innocent woman along with him - and he is also living proof that a belief in hell doesn't prevent anyone from committing evil.

That's why Jerry Falwell was dangerous. And why Pat Robertson is dangerous. And why Peter Popoff - who James Randi unmasked nearly three decades ago - is back (as Randi resignedly admitted in his speech at the CFI World Conference) on the BET Channel doing fake healings, causing people to avoid medical treatment en masse, and he is still dangerous. Michael Ruse, are you paying attention?

As for "me, my god, me," I simply don't believe in something that does not exist. So I don't believe in "my god, me," but just in me. The way that you should simply believe in yourself. Each person should.

Disgusting. One expects this kind of asinine ignorant behavior from those unfortunate enough to be born in a backwards country. In the US, there is no excuse. The media will of course play this as an individual who was crazy without ever addressing the root causes of this form of insanity. They are all insane, and we have been allowing the inmates to run the asylum for too long. He was the finished product of a system of control that recognizes that an ignorant person will believe anything, lacking the information to discriminate reality from bullshit. Just to be sure, let's also make sure that this person lacks the self-esteem required to trust his own judgment and not defer to others. The people who benefit most from this system also fail to understand why it's criminal to foster such ignorance and misery. How many times will something like this have to happen before society as a whole stops thinking of them as isolated incidents?

According to Jubal Harshaw, faith is a five letter word meaning intellectual laziness. I tend to be more kind, and state that it is intellectual incapacity.

In some cases, early onset of Alzheimer's is a congenital condition. No operation short of a brain transplant will cure it.

It's very easy to just sit there and claim that your opinion is just as good as anyone's if you do nothing to challenge it. You can SAY anything you want. I can smugly claim the sky is green and I can be as right as rain if I never go out and look at it.

I agree - it's not good enough just to keep saying someone is wrong - they will just tell you the sky is green. Sometimes you have to drag their sorry ass outside and show them what an ass they are.

WTF does that mean?

Name one "crime" I have committed in the name of atheism.
