Dilbert writer Scott Adams, member of MENSA and famed atheist, decided it was important to tell his audience to get away from black people. If you think that’s bad, wait until you see what I dug up from years ago. He’s been pushing a far right extremist narrative for a long time now. During the 2020 presidential campaign, he took advantage of religious people’s fears and superstitions, despite the fact that he’s openly atheist. Does it get more depraved than this?
Honestly I haven’t even scratched the surface of how awful this guy truly is. He “self-identified as black” for years, and only stopped doing so because he felt he was “part of a hate group.” That’s right. He didn’t stop identifying as black because he’s a fully white man. He stopped because he decided an entire category of humans, who no one can decide to join or not join, was a hate group.
I’m honestly ashamed that we share any overlapping views, but it is important to point out the popular atheists who are also extremely wrong and dangerous. He doesn’t get a pass just because he happens to agree with me on the God issue. He also doesn’t really ACT like an atheist. I don’t mean atheists are a monolith who all must agree on everything. I mean the thing that makes an atheist- a lack of belief in all gods. This guy, seemingly unashamedly, went on a rant about demons and how there were an awful lot of demonic coincidences surrounding Joe Biden.
I’ve never once considered pointing out that someone was demonic or possessed or claiming someone was worshiping Satan. Because I DON’T BELIEVE IN THOSE THINGS. It would be like a fundamentalist coming up to you and saying they felt Krishna was really influencing you lately. You’d understandably have some questions.
Ultimately it’s up to each of us to self-identify our own beliefs and feelings and we all just have to kind of take people at their word. It’s a lot like gender and sexuality. We can’t know what’s happening inside someone’s brain so we have to give them the benefit of the doubt and basic respect. But with this guy I’m tempted to speculate. Let me know what you think about it in the comments.
