Classic Ad hominem Fallacy

This was posted at Amazon about my review of Living Buddha, Living Christ.

PHD, YOU? Who cares? You're nothing but a stupid Christian moron! JESUS CHRIST IS A FRAUD!!! The Judeo Christian bible is a medieval tale about talking donkeys and snakes,man who supposedly lived inside a whale,men who supposedly lived more than 900 years and a lot of nonsense! One need to be VERY mentally retarded to believe in such things! BLIND FAITH IS IGNORANCE!!!

...hmmm. yes, "One need to be" something, that's for sure.

This is certainly the sort of excuse we can take off the table, for those with ears to hear.

He forgot about people being turned into salt, talking bushes and monsters with seven heads.

I may cut and paste that into my notes for Logic Class. That is one of the best Ad Hominem Fallacies I've read in a while. I'd be honored to have such a thing written in response to my arguments. :)

This may be an ad hominem attack, but the fact is that such attacks, nonsensical as they may be, still hurt. So don't take it to heart too much, Doug. When you stick out your neck you can expect to get targeted.

I'm glad to learn from this fellow that the Bible was written in the medieval period!

As a Christian do not expect the world to love you. We must love the world even though it is unforgiving like Jesus said when he is dying. If we follow Jesus the world will hate us.
