Praise the bang! As it is and as we discover it to be. As Astronomers, it is our sacred duty to spread the facts and convert the ignorant savage from their lives of morons into the world of knowledge and light that is Astronomy.
That being the case, we can have no respects for the morons beliefs. Unlike other religions professing to respect other peoples beliefs who are obviously not convinced of their own faith. In The Astronomers, we can have no respect for the morons belief. No respect for their ignorance of the facts. No respect for their imaginary beings while all the believers on Earth are going around saying “Oh, we respect your belief and we must respect the faiths of others, however bizarre and full of mumbo jumbo voodoo nonsense they may be, which is quite a lot.”
We, in The Astronomers, we alone stand by our convictions. We, who know, who will not waver in the face of others beliefs, we cannot and will not respect the morons. Let us not deal in malice or pity, for all of the morons that there are, are but Astronomers who have not seen the light or looked through a telescope. These people may yet be saved. They may be saved by confronting them with the facts, our sacred duty and showing them the proof, the proof that is in the bang, so it written, so it is, and so it may be discovered. Let us note.
Let us not shy away from the truth nor shrink from it’s facts. We may respect a spiritual person’s journey towards the mystery. We can respect many things, but anyone who believes in imaginary beings is a moron. All people who believe in divine creation are ignorant savages and all the dumb schmucks who believe the Earth is six thousand years old are morons and we should tell them, we who know. It is for us to tell them, with conviction, dignity and a straight face. Be not afraid of offending the morons. I say to you, be not afraid, for it is our sacred duty to spread the facts, shame the morons, shine the light of knowledge wherever we go. Let us know.
