Skepticism hits kos-world today

November 21, 2012

I have not been in the habit of posting every story I ponder about skepticism and atheism on Daily Kos. Some of them just don’t relate much to politics. Not that this stops…well, anyone else, but I pick and choose a bit. That said, this time I went ahead and wrote about Pat Robertson there. The political angle is that he pretty clearly believed that god told him Romney would win, and he and his god were wrong. It is amusing to watch a believer deal with the dissonance of god being wrong — and yet god is god, he can’t be wrong. Surprisingly, what he said about it sounded a lot to me like he knows that it’s all a sham — that he knows he’s making his own ideas sound like they’re divinely inspired.

Which most likely explains the holy book they revere, as well.

  1. I think it’s important to realize that people like Robertson are not fielding a general polemic in the hopes o challenging all of us. They are fielding an exploitive message in the hopes of catching the interest, and the dollars, of those whose judgement is no longer what it once was.
