Not A Rant.
Riddle me this ATS?
While this does not happen on every occasion, why does it seem like whenever a person on ATS is speaking of some awe inspiring event that has
anything to do with spirituality, at one point or another they start speaking in a moderate amount of OLD ENGLISH?
Even a moderate amount is TOO much.
Let me criminalize myself first by stating right off the bat that I’m a Christian, and that I have seen it from Christians as much as anyone else on
ATS and elsewhere.
I will not link to threads directly to make my points, but I think everyone knows what I’m talking about.
Those claiming to be a god for petes sake.
Those claiming to be a devil or Satan himself.
Basically every religion I have witnessed here on ATS and television and in person are guilty of this crap.
It doesn’t matter, whenever expressing a profound point of perceived enlightenment the air of superiority is expressed via Old English.
In my opinion it is lame, and pointless, along with the fact that:
1. It pisses me off and probably everyone else that reads as well.
2. It lends absolutely ZERO credibility to your argument. What, because you can speak in a way that is akin to how the King James Bible is written you
are now vindicated?
3. Arrogant arrogant arrogant.
4. Just plain stupid.
I will give a fictional example:
[Arrogantposter20: I was contacted by a demon last night who was actually an alien from the planet Leader 3. He has a message for the world.
“Verily I say unto all the earth, the days of wrath shall befall mankind for crimes thou hast committed against the mother earth for thou not having
[Skepticalposter20: Uhh….Negative, I think you are full of baloney dude and you sound ridiculous. Whatch think of that?]
[Arrogantposter20:…… Be ye warned, one doth not speak so mindlessly against the wise Zagroff and get away with it. Soon all shall see, for the
time of understanding is upon ye all.]
When I read posts like this from anyone who is approaching the message boards in a spiritual direction, I can only face palm my self while I
“doth” proclaim WTF?
I’m asking why, why speak like this?
What does it do for their ego?
Do supposed gods and aliens speak in such ways to this date?
Should we bring back this archaic form of speaking?
Does God still speak to Christians in this way? I can’t say I have ever heard a voice say to me, “Verily the chariot thou hast seen is the chariot
I’ll tell you why, Because these things have no relevance to modern day humans.
Just like if you see a sign in the sky it’s NOT likely to be a dude clothed in a Roman style toga, with an actual golden scroll and or trumpets?
I do believe God has spoken to me, regardless of what an atheist may think about it.
Maybe I’m mentally problematic, who cares.
The point I’m making is the following;
Lose the Shakespearian-esque ego speak, if you want people to take you even one iota more seriously.
Whatever you do, if you want be preachy, don’t do it in such a profoundly moronic way, for the good of us all.
