Chick has a funny tendency to have the word "fanatic" come from his antagonists at very strange times. It may be an intentional attempt to make the person calling the True Believer a "fanatic" irrational due to using the term when it isn't really applicable. Or it might just be that Chick really doesn't know what beliefs and what presentation of them causes a person to be called a "fanatic", because he is just that much of a fundamentalist.
(Professor makes a dramatic pose, rants, and name drops).
"Evolution" of stars and planets from gas, as well as chemical evoluton, as well as "cosmic evolution", have everything to do with chemistry, physics, and astronomy, and nothing to do with evolution or biology. And organic evolution (aka, abiogenesis) is rarely ever taught as a fact, or at all, simply because it doesn't have conclusive evidence either way and has nothing to do with the two "basic concepts of evolution", which are the only two that are actually evolution.
(Goes through some stuff about vestigial organs, including the hilariously wrong "Even if there were 'vestigial" organs, isn't losing something the opposite of evolution?". His coup de grace is random stuff about "gluons" and how they don't exist. Which ends in....)
You know that it's a happy ending when it involves a professor being so disspirited by an encounter with a tenacious and disruptive student that he feels compelled to end his own teaching career with a sense of defeat. That's what he gets for being mean and teaching established science.
After having failed his exam in "Logistics and Organization", a student goes and confronts his lecturer about it.
Student: "Sir, do you really understand anything about the subject?"
Professor: "Surely I must. Otherwise I would not be a professor!"
Student: "Great, well then I would like to ask you a question.
If you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my mark as is and go. If you however do not know the answer, I want you give me an "A" for the exam. "
Professor: "Okay, it's a deal. So what is the question?"
Student:"What is legal, but not logical, logical, but not legal, and neither logical, nor legal?Even after some long and hard consideration, the professor cannot give the student an answer, and therefore changes his exam mark into an "A", as agreed.
Afterwards, the professor calls on his best student and asks him the same question.He immediately answers: "Sir, you are 63 years old and married to a 35 year old woman, which is legal, but not logical. Your wife has a 25 year old lover, which is logical, but not legal. The fact that you have given your wife's lover an "A", although he really should have failed, is neither legal, nor logical."
The story is told of the English Professor from hell. He spent years creating a reputation as the most intimidating Prof. on the east coast and was not going to let this years graduating class escape his judgment.
Seeing several students as less than worthy of a diploma, he felt it his duty to fail them for not passing one final exam.
The tactics used to control the test mood included pacing about the lecture theater of 500+ students howling "Failure!" to each student he observed to be struggling. This and many other objections by the Prof. seemed to be working well. The final minutes of the exam brought several student to the brink of tears, stressed with the anxiety and fear of facing their peers and parents with an F.
One student, unusually determined to succeed, seemed unmoved as the bell rang and the pile of exams grew mountainous in the front of the room. He sat in silence with fixed attention to the half finished exam in front of him.
The Prof. jeered as the last of the students cleared the forum, and staring in disbelief at the lone student in the corner of the room grew ominously enraged.
"Give it up. You've FAILED! The test is OVER!!!" he shouted.
The student continued unmoved.
Half in unbelief and half in pompous arrogance, the Prof. gathered the mountain of exams into a stack upon his desk and began correcting them with a large RED marker.
A half hour goes by. Then an hour. One and a half hours and the Prof. finally becomes unnerved and orders the student to cease his futile efforts to escape another year of education. He cat-calls the young student and reminds him of his fate once again. "The test is OVER. Put your tail between your legs and crawl home!!!" he shouted.
With that the student closed the test folder and slowly walked to the front of the room.
"Professor, do you know who I am?" remarked the young student.
"Yes", shouts the Prof. "you're a FAILURE!."
Quietly, the student replies: "I asked, do you know WHO I am?"
The Prof. quieted a bit and shuffled a paper on his desk.
"DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?" the student asked once again.
With that final question, the student raised the top half of the exams and quickly slipped his test into the mountain of folders. "I didn't think so", said the student as he turned and proudly walked away....confident of his success.
A United States Marine was attending some college courses between assignments. He had completed missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist and a member of the ACLU.
A e-mail that has been received by many USC students has recently caught the atten- tion of the School of Philosophy, which reports that the tale is not true. The e-mail alleges that a USC professor was a "deeply committed atheist" whose main goal in his class was to prove that God didn't exist.Another professor trying to flamboyantly disprove God in the classroom. I would gladly see a professor fired for stunts like these, and I am as militant of an atheist as the next guy. But, fortunately, these seem to either be outright fiction or an extreme exaggeration. So, I think I will take my righteous outrage somewhere else, where it is not in response to a fabrication.
The first inquiries began a few months ago and have been steadily coming ever since, said philosophy professor Edwin McCann.
The e-mail's story is one that was written to reaffirm faith in miracles and in God, but includes USC in the telling of the story.
The e-mail claims that at the end of every semester for the past 20 years, the professor is said to have asked his class of about 300 students to stand up if they believed in God, and no one ever stood.
Then he would "prove" God did not exist by dropping a piece of chalk on the floor and saying, "If God existed, he could stop this piece of chalk from hitting the ground and breaking."
The e-mail says that one year, a young Christian man stood up and said he "still believed in God" when the professor posed the question to his class. The professor dropped another piece of chalk, and this time it did not break. Then the professor fled the lecture hall, the e-mail says.

It's the beginning of Ridvan!
Okay, okay...I'll stop now...

Somehow I doubt that we have any Israelis in our country that could reasonably be called a "murderer" (who isn't already in jail, that is) in anyway more significant than saying the same of any American citizen, let alone a soldier.
Describing the Jews as "Nazis" (while simultaneously using a slur to describe them) is an interesting blend of humorous and disgusting that I simply have yet to acquire a taste for.
Oh my no-God! It's like deja vu!
You know what they say: It isn't truly free speech unless it makes you throw up in your mouth a little. Or involve naked bicycling.
I doubt that this is the first time that Gore has had his name written on another man's ass. I mean, in the Clinton White House and all...
"Child's Guide to Nihilism". Only slightly better for impressionable youth than "The O'Reilly Factor for kids".
In fairness, this occurred at some rally involving "anarchists". So talking about blowing up cop cars comes with the territory.
...I am so reusing that image....
I actually don't think that this one is all bad. Looks like a jocular turnabout-is-fairplay kinda sign. And man do I love the crazy hair!
I swear that it must say "The End is Nigh" on the back of that sign.
Also, not that bad of a sign. Except that the U.S. cannot" get out of the ovaries" of the man holding the sign, without first getting the ovaries into him. And that's a costly venture, right there.
Gotta hate it when I sort of agree with them, but they overstate their case so much that it impossible to do so completely.
Oh come now. Bush isn't a murderer. And probably isn't psychotic (juries still out on that one, still need to check on how he goes about getting his instructions from God...).
Nudes in the trees! I swear that half of the protestors we've seen so far just wanted an excuse to be naked.
Case in point. "Breasts not bombs". Are you planning some sort of exchange? Because if so, I think I may need to start procuring some bombs...
That is one creepy looking Uncle Sam. If Uncle Sam were a superhero, and he was portrayed in The Dark Knight instead of Batman, we would see an Uncle Sam who looks similar to this.
Ladies and gentleman, I give to you: Larry King, circa 1974.
That's either something saying "Tuck" or "Fuck" at the top, and that is either a picture of Bush or of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs, sans pipe.
Take that, broad geographic region!
Hasan Akbar was a U.S. soldier who killed two U.S. troops and wounded 14 more. After being arrested, he was at one point let out of handcuffs in order to go to the bathroom and used the opportunity to use a pair of scissors he had hidden on his person to stab into another officer. Fuck him and fuck this lady, is all I have to say on that matter.
If you want to get rid of Israel, I don't think "smashing" will be helpful. Unless you've got the Incredible Hulk on your side...
My God. That effigy looks like a South Park character!
Bush wearing a crown and holding Mein Kampf? Are they implying that Bush could read? (Wow...that felt good).
This gaijin has begun his journey down the path of a thousand Godwins.
If you begin any written statement with the phrase "Death to America!", chances are that you are going to have make a hell of a good point later on in order to be taken seriously. Just food for thought.
Interesting that they decided to put those two messages together on the same sign...
Man, they really went all out. Lady Liberty and Grim Reaper costumes, large banner, reductio ad hitlerum, crisp images. They thought of everything!

For posterity's sake, here's the hilarity:
All those members of other religions and those Japanese can head straight back to Mexico!1!!
I'm sure that this sign is more than just a jumble of names to someone out there...
Looks strangely like I would picture Obama if he grew a Jay Leno chin and became a car salesman...
Not sure how the term "America is humble" adds to their point...
In fairness, even if our republic was "destroyed" in month...it wasn't exactly in the best of conditions before said destruction.
Comment: That guy looks far too awesome. The power of sunglasses and a grimace...
Awww...children being used to spread their parents' political ideology/delusions. It's adorable!
See the white guy in the crowd, looking towards the sign? He is getting far too much enjoyment out of it. He could not match that expression if he were being fellated while on high on MDMA. He should really try to limit his crazed grins in public. Won't anyone think of the children?
Awww again. Cute little 2 foot tall protestors. Also: apparently you can add "socialist" into any sentence and suddenly it is a scathing critique.
Nice artwork. I trust that this is simply an example of Superdickery .
The big sign on the right: it says that Barack, Clinton, and Bush all supported abortion, "socialism", oral/anal sex , and "The New World Order". I would say "one of these things is not like the others", but they all make so little sense in the context of the Tea Party protests, and make even less sense when you admit that the stuff going on isn't new, that the only possible response is to avert your eyes, lest your brain explode within your skull.
How the fuck would that even work?
Stream of consciousness? How -I think I am going to go get a drink man I hate that yappy dog why the hell is that guy rummaging through my garbage- of you.
If you can't read the writing at the top, it's important that you do...without it, the wrath and stupidity don't make any sense!
Well...she gets bonus points for original presentation at least...
Karl Marx: now used in guilt by association arguments against people who aren't associated with him. We really need to update Godwin's law...
Is she volunteering?
How can a person be "an assault"?
Now that's the real Godwin. And a disgusting one at that.
Freeloading illegals are raping U.S. Tax payers? Yet another person showing up to the wrong protest, with what appears to be a premise for some form of exploitation film.
What? No pork joke? Must have ran out of cardboard...
Stop murdering babies? I would, but it is so addictive.
And speaking of things completely irrelevant to the actual idea behind the protests...
"Cut taxes not defense"? Money does not work that way.
Feels more like 1861 to me. And that's being generous.
And when Bush walked with his hand tenderly clasping the Saudi King's hand, he cheated on sweet Lady Liberty.
That sign would be hilarious if...well...you know...
