On Free-Thinkers

I once read of a competition in which contestants competed in the writing of the longest run-on sentence. Since this has always come natural to me, I've pondered whether or not I might have some natural talent. This post would be no contender in such a contest, but I think it's a fairly decent first shot.

On Free-Thinkers
  • To understand free-thinkers one must remember that being a free-thinker is somehow demonstrated by keeping lockstep with every other free-thinker and somehow, even though "narrow minded" Christians are far more vehemently splintered and divergent in their thinking, the fact that this is so is more likely to be used by the free-thinkers to discredit Christians for being what they see as narrow-minded non-thinkers because of a perceived lack of consensus than it is to win any approval from the "free thinkers" for thinking freely, unless, that is, the "close-minded" Christians reject free-thought and join with the free-thinkers altogether by subjecting their thinking to the constraints placed on it by the free-thinker's politically correct thought police by ensuring that their thoughts are in line with all the other free-thinker's thoughts, regardless of what meaningless religious persuasion they may be persuaded by, whereby they will somehow, so it is thought, finally be accepted and loved by the masses and will be free to think freely what they are supposed to think as prescribed and clearly drawn out in the terms set forth by political correctness and name calling like racist and bigot because we all know it is easier to call people names than to refute arguments don't we?

Well done! You've got my vote. The whole "free-thinking" bit seems like question begging to me. They assume they are free thinkers just because they maintain their skepticism. But they aren't skeptical of all their beliefs, of course, and there is no inherent goodness to skepticism. Believing based on facts is logical.

Wow, impressive! Context AND content.

The waltzing sentence...*; ) Opposed to the staccato!

Good! But ... shouldn't this (or something very much like it) be in the New World Order American Dictionary? I look forward to its addition. :)

Breaking an argument into individual sentences is overrated anyway.

Good work!
