I don't think Lounatic Midgley got the memo:

"Louis Midgley > dCyl a day ago

Professor Peterson and I, for very different reasons, have a serious interest in Mauthausen, which is near Linz on the Donau in upper Austria. It was operated from 1938 until "liberated" on 3 May 1945. Dan's Father was right there when the US Army arrived. The names of 122,766 are known who went up the Stack there, and it is estimated that the total number was 320,000. Dachau saw 41,500 murdered. But Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland had somewhere between 1.1 and 1.6 million sent up the Stack."

Up the stack.

I have exactly no interest in the "entire life story" of gemli. And I have not fashioned a "stick figure" of who gemli is.

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/danpeters ... 5007516481
Also Midgley:
I very much doubt that gemli can remember a single thing from that early indoctrination. And I doubt that someone who hides their real identity under the odd name gemli, while trying hard to keep posting the same rubbish over and over about matters about which he knows little or nothing, all in the vain hope that he will somehow gain a symbolic immortality by being eventually discovered as a heroic figure who somehow managed to liberate himself from proclivities of a need that most all human beings just happen to have evolved to wrongly have.

You just have to laugh, at some point. What an obnoxious little ass Midgley is.

Professor Midgley is on a monthly repeat loop of sharing the same group of stories over and over. He is likely mis-remembering with the same repetition.

Except that with each loop, his enemies get worse, his tribulations expand, his trials increase, gemli de-evolves, he becomes more saintly, mormondiscussions descends further into a sewer and the whole human race collectively becomes less human than any single LDS person. no wonder no one takes him seriously any more.

Let me be the first person to announce the publication of the festschrift in honor of Dr. Midgley. I’ve ordered eight copies and intend to have them bound in leather. The cheap paperback is a slight, I think, toward Dr. Midgley.

Huh. Maybe Allen Wyatt will truck the copies down from Wyoming, and will strap a sliver tray to his back, get down on all fours, and pass them out to everyone? (Socially distanced and masked-up, of course. Though Wyatt will be expected to wear a mask with a pig snout on it.)

Louis “peckerhead” Midgley making up a story about a perceived enemy based on bits of pieces he can wrangle out of them - does he maintain a dossier on the respectable gemli?

“gemli started out somewhere anxious to know physics, but the math stumped him. So he got a MS degree in "experimental psychology," whatever that is. But he has never made any contribution to any known science. None at all. And now he is boasting about his "career as a computer analyst and programmer for [at?] three universities [colleges?], two of which were Catholic institutions." With these credentials we should all be in awe of his scientism, should we not?”

gemli would be well advised to stop feeding the Lounatic information; he may get a visit from a crazy octogenarian some day if he isn’t careful!

Also Midgley:

radically dogmatic gemli shows exactly no interest in knowing a thing about our faith, or the faith of other Christians or Muslims. gemli even boasts that about his total indifference to knowing a thing about our faith, or the actual faith of anyone, Christian, Jewish, or Muslim, though gemli also rattles on about an imaginary history in which there are hundreds of religions, which vague word gemli has yet to defines, and which gemli does not identify. gemli also has fashioned for himself thousands of what he calls imaginary and also non-extentent goblins, Gods and so forth.

It simply does not get any better than this from our very own Village Atheist.

...but the obvious fact is the atheism set out constantly by gemli consists of a series of positive assertions about both the way things really are, and have been in the past, and why some always unidentified "science" has settle the most crucial issues once and for all.

DAMN! This ANGERS me greatly. I could've, and would've, been EAGER AS HELL to submit a paper in honor of the Lounatic.

The fact that the Interpreter Foundation failed to invite me to submit such a paper is, in my view, the worst slight they've ever delivered me. >:-(

Louis Midgley gemli 3 hours ago

Our Village Atheist is very experienced at posting his own dogmatic religion. gemli, who has not contributed a single thing to any known science, but who instead obviously worships the god of science, hardly ever entertains with typographical mistakes. But when gemli has painted himself into a corner, and actually knows that he has no rhetorical response, he becomes rattled and careless. types. Hence the following from gemli: "Mathematically deriving the number of angles [sic] that can dance on the head of a pin does not count." This little glitch caused me to smile.

The fact is that angles do not dance. And neither do angels, except in the imagination of those who are both annoyed by and ignorant of Roman Catholic medieval theology.

But this is not the only problem with this series of bald assertions by gemli. For example, gemli begins as follows: "Gemli wonder...." gemli really is often a real "wonder," is he not?

gemli’s incredibly clever pun was far too nuanced and clever for Louis “peckerhead” Midgley to grasp since he’s lived his life like a rat terrier, appropriately enough known as a hunting companion, going after people he considers to be the equivalent of vermin - those who would look at Mormonism objectively. His handlers rewarded the good boy with a bone, a paperback edition of some nonsense he wrote over the years, so he has that going for him.

The Peckerhead continues to attack the genial Moksha:

“Lounatic Midgley > Kiwi57 5 hours ago

I suggest we call moky Moksha a charter member of the Dunce Camp. Well, he posts on sic et non to mock and sneer, in his own odd way, at faithful Latter-day Saints.”

This was the comment that spurred the Peckerhead’s slight:

“Moksha - 12 hours ago

As long as you are expressing Mudita (joy at the well being of others) as opposed to Schadenfreude (delight at the suffering of others) you should be okay. The need to divide the world up into enemies leads us into the schadenfreude camp. Those experiencing mudita would view meatwads, Mormons, and non-believers with compassion.”

So. Yeah.

Possibly, but it would be easier to feature a picture of Orrin Porter Rockwell on the cover of the paperback.

The following is an excerpt from an article at Sic et Non by Dr. Peterson bemoaning the cruel way he is frequently treated on this board. I was trying to convey a message of encouragement to him. This diversion followed:
Moksha • 2 days ago

The need to divide the world up into enemies leads us into the schadenfreude camp. Those experiencing mudita would view meatwads, Mormons, and non-believers with compassion.

And when someone preaches "good" behaviour to those who consistently behave better than his buddies, to whom he never preaches at all, what camp is he then in?


Moksha Kiwi57 • a day ago
Wasn't really preaching to Jack or Gemli. I suppose it is there for anyone who wants to listen.


Kiwi57 Moksha • 13 hours ago
Oh, so it was one of your passive-aggressive not-looking-at-anyone-and-you-know-who-you-are remarks.

Got it.

Moksha Kiwi57 • a few seconds ago
Kiwi - Oh, so it was one of your passive-aggressive not-looking-at-anyone-and-you-know-who-you-are remarks.
My initial remark was directly intended as a soothing balm for Dr. Peterson, who seemed to be hurting.

Not sure what camp Moky Moksha would put Loopy Lou in, but I would hope the camp nurses there would puree the chipped beef on toast before serving it.

Moksha,

Great points. Unfortunately, religion often enables people to personally attack and act callously on those they label "bad" without consequence. This erroneous belief permits them to honestly believe that their hatred is defensible as good moral conduct.

It is a narcissistic mindset and often times saturates their relationships, often keeping those relationships from ever truly holding any love and kindness when those they interact with do not agree with their religious beliefs. I've seen this happen time and time again in the LDS faith.

I'm sorry this has happened to you, Gemli and others.


DanielPeterson Mod tavs • 18 hours ago • edited
tavs: "I'm sorry this has happened to you, Gemli and others."
Your sorrow would be more convincing if it weren't so obviously directed against religious believers -- personal attacks, callousness, hatred, and narcissism scarcely require theism! -- and if it weren't so obviously weaponized against believers here, with nary a peep about the far worse misbehavior that has happened for years at Moksha's home message board.

Plainly, double standards and hypocrisy don't require theism, either.

gemli DanielPeterson • 11 hours ago
It's true that double standards and hypocrisy don't require theism, but boy, does it help. If religious people suddenly saw the light and divested themselves of their beliefs I'd have to spend my days reeducating Republicans.


gemli tavs • 11 hours ago
If it weren't for religions and the untold numbers of faithful followers, I would be bereft. If they knew how much I enjoyed arguing with them they'd probably become atheists just to spite me.


Kiwi57 tavs • 13 hours ago
So what is it that gives Moksha license to intentionally poke the bear and remain immune from any response?


Moksha Kiwi57 • 8 minutes ago • edited
Lou might phrase the question this way, "What gives Mongoose Moksha the temerity to to tempt the venomous Cobra into striking?"

This could be followed up with the questions:
1. Why do venomous cobras have the need to strike?
2. Why even keep venomous cobras on a religious blog?


Moksha tavs • 17 hours ago
Tavs, thank you for your kind words.

LM: "matters that no known science can possibly assess"

Except herpetology.

Don't forget herpetology. That, I suspect, is the science that answers all of gemli's questions and that satisfies the neurochemical transactions that would once have been called his "soul."

Lemmie, it is so easy to get sucked into the world of insults over there. I really do not want to be mean to Louis, but I sometimes retaliate to my own chagrin. I also realize that while my evil side would like to trade insult after insult with Kiwi, my better side is getting sucked into the same morass which initially forged the darkside of apologetics. I need to discipline myself to rise above the need to lash out with symmetrical anger.
