Top Ten Signs You Are A Christian Fundamentalist

October 29, 2006 | By | Reply More

Here they are, as published in   This list succinctly describes many of my concerns with fundamentalist Christianity.

Here are my three favorites of this list of ten.  You are a fundamentalist Christian if:

#9 – You feel insulted and “dehumanized” when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

#7 – Your face turns purple when you hear of the “atrocities” attributed to Allah, but you don’t even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in “Exodus” and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in “Joshua” including women, children, and trees!

#3 – While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in “tongues” may be all the evidence you need to “prove” Christianity.

Two of these points focus on the consciously manipulated skepticism used by so many fundies.  For instance, Darwin’s thorough and meticulous analysis of physical evidence (concerning evidence that is available for anyone who questions Darwin’s claims) is rejected out of hand while the claim by an unknown writer that an Omnipotent sentient being made a woman out of Adam’s rib is considered true beyond question.  In fact, those who dare to publicly doubt that a being named “God” created woman  out of a man’s rib are haughtily and publicly skewered as immoral and hell-bound.  They certainly can’t hold any public office in this country.

And they further assert that the United States is based on assumptions like this, that the United States is a “Christian nation.”  Literal beliefs such as these constitute a horrible basis for any sort of government, if you ask me.
