I Know that I Know; that I Know that I Know!

By Al Wm Johnson ~

Over the years “religious” acquaintances of mine have defended their supernatural beliefs by saying,

“I know that I know; that I know that I know.”

For me, this is an egotistical defense of stupidity. Their use of “I know” is basically a sandbagging defense mechanism since there is no way to logically and factually defend supernatural nonsense.

Isn’t it futile to try to make sense out of nonsense? Supernaturalism is the absurdity of saying,

“there is absolutely no way I can scientifically and logically defend my belief system, but I stand by and defend it anyway.”

Their use of “I know” is basically a sandbagging defense mechanismIsn’t it kind of absurd to defend the indefensible? My standard answer for those who believe in virgin births, corpses rising from the dead, saints and sinners, devils and hellfire is,

“I know, that you know, that there is no way deep-down you can possibly believe that bullshit.”

I know, that you know, that anyone who allows themselves to critically think can be that goddamn stupid.

I emphatically state, “Why supernatural when Nature is so amazing!” Why an invented super-being from a supernatural world that has brought endless
cruelty, misery, fighting, and disunity to the human world?
