Tom?! You sound just like....
I like to pop over to drudge and see what kind of stories he has posted. Right now he has an interview between Matt Lauer and Tom Cruise. While reading thorugh it I couldn't help but notice a number of similarities between things that Tom says and what some of our "friends" have said. A few that caught my attention:
"Tom: No, you see. Here's the problem. You don't know the history of psychiatry. I do."
Quite often our "friends" explain that we can't really know things and we live in a subjective world and without their view we are helpless and adrift. Tom tells Matt that because his knowledge about something is lacking it automatically makes him wrong. If Matt knew what Tom knows he would be able to have a firm footing on reality.
"Tom: all it does is mask the problem, Matt. And if you understand the history of it, it masks the problem. That's what it does. That's all it does. You're not getting to the reason why. There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance."
Again, all our thinking, all our reasoning is merely masking the problem within. We are troubled and stupid because if we knew what was really going on we could correct the real problem in our lives.
"Tom: the thing that I'm saying about Brooke is that there's misinformation, okay. And she doesn't understand the history of psychiatry. She-- she doesn't understand in the same way that you don't understand it, Matt."
And if we were able to "really know" the history of the world, its origins, its fall into depravity - with the help of their God we would be able to shed "the masking" we are doing to ourselves and discover the true nature of things.
"Tom: Matt. Matt, Matt, you don't even-- you're glib. You don't even know what Ritalin is."
Atheist, Atheist, you don't even know what "X" is - you're glib...
"Tom: What is the theory and the science behind that, that justifies that?"
As our friends say, what justifies "X?" Only our view can.
