Selective Hyperskepticism

Our Masters tend to be highly selective in their skepticism: full of doubts about Jesus, deeply repulsed when it comes to all moralities other than their own, yet 100% convinced when it comes to the current, Establishment-backed orthodoxies – whatever that happens to be.

Now, it can sometimes be worth the Christian’s time to drag out the willful ignorance behind, say, skepticism regarding the existence of Jesus or the power of militant atheism out into the open, for all to see.

But this should be done not to convince the committed skeptic (who won’t be changing his mind, regardless of the evidence), but to persuade the silent onlookers on who is speaking the truth, and who isn’t.
