Question with 13 notes
Anonymous said: My god, would you please explain something to me? It's very simple. We have a statement by the good Reverend Pat Robertson on demons. A world-renown man who's dedicated himself to Christianity, Mr. Robertson has lived considerably longer than you and is an expert at his field. You are a nobody a fraction of his age and quick to dismiss what he says and what countless other people have experienced. This would be like me taking advice from my 4-year old granddaughter. That's perspective.
I assume you’re likely a troll, but let’s pretend for a moment you’re not, what sort of expert would you consider Pat Robertson to be exactly? An expert on saying things that would make even most sociopaths blush? An expert on fleecing geriatrics out of their social security checks? There is no subject of value that Pat Robertson could realistically be considered an expert on at all.
Since when is age a factor of knowledge? If anything it is far more likely that Pat Robertson has actually lost his mental faculties considering his advanced age. He is likely quite dulled at this point in his mental acuity, where by contract I am in the prime of my life. How is this really even a point worth contending? If you’re advancing an argument from authority, I’d like to point you to a simple list of common fallacies.
From the sounds of it you could probably stand to learn quite a lot from your 4 year old granddaughter if you take the time to listen. My son is 5 and the insights and comments he has made at times have surprised me, he may not have a full grasp on the world but simply because he’s young doesn’t make him incapable of insight. Really if you want to take pride in being a fan of Pat Robertson you’re welcome to but realize who you’re joining up with - a man who has no compassion, no morality, no ethics, and no integrity. If that is the type of person you’d like to align yourself with feel free but due us all a favor and don’t leave the safe confined of your nursing home.
