Under The Hood of the Wingnut Mindset

I found this tonight at Fundies Say The Darndest Things:
But evolution is not a fact, it is tons of theories about facts. If it was a fact, I would believe it, but since I don’t believe it, it is not a fact. I believe ALL facts, actually correction, I KNOW all facts are facts. You cannot believe something you know, belief involves taking a leap, with facts there is no leap to take, since you would know. But, I do not KNOW of evolution being a fact, and I disagree with it being a fact, therefore it is not a fact. Does this make me uneducated about the information about evolution? No, I have read a lot about it and debated about it before, not just on this website. I know about the issue, I don’t agree it is a fact.
This reminds me of the CEO of a company I used to work for, who was heard to say in a senior staff meeting, on one memorable occasion: "I don't claim to know everything, but if somebody tells me I am wrong, I have a problem with that."

Anyway, I thought the quote really spoke to the underlying mindset of the wingnut hoi polloi. Objective standards for factuality need not apply.

I love all 3 "branches" is that the right word? of that site. I tells ya it's addicting.

The parade of nonsense served up there sure is compelling. I always leaves me breathlessly asking, "When did people get to be this STUPID?"

I meant "It," not "I."

Maybe not nearly as stupid as in the main article, but here it goes

“reggie” the stalker must be frothing at the face as we speak. Poor little obsessed feller.

You got that right.

That was from the moron who believes "patsy" is all over the internet.
