Not, of course, that most of them will ever admit this. Instead, they repeat themselves ever more LOUDLY about Jesus' sacrifice, while they block their ears and close their eyes. Denial is a common coping strategy amongst those who cannot face scholarly facts.
Cognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling, and those who insist on believing refuted and falsified myths inevitably experience considerable discomfort. Blaming all dissonant information on the Devil is a popular fallacy.
Why so much discomfort?
Crucifixion accounts contradict each other, as do resurrection accounts. Since so much wishful myth-making is based on the resurrection, let's compare. Don't take my word for it, check the on-line Bible references:
Who went to the tomb?
Matthew 28:1 Mark 16:1 Luke 24:1, 23:55 John 20:1
Is choice so much to ask? Given Google's obstinate refusal to consider any requests from users, it appears that it is.
Just to test beta's features, I opened a new GreedTube channel.
Apologists for beta – some of whom I suspect of being on the payroll – are claiming that we hate the design because we can't figure out how to use it. These people appear to rank alongside creationists in the logic department.
Beta is cumbersome for visitors to a channel page. It is, however, easy to modify the page's design and modules.
I still hate it. Tens of thousands hate it.
It is cluttered, cramped, and singularly unattractive, that's why.
Easier channel set-up features are all well and good, but how much time and trouble is it to set up design on the more complicated alpha channels? Very little. Once one has worked out how to do it, a new alpha channel requires only about five minutes to design, particularly if one is familiar with the html codes for colours.
The ideal solution? Adapt the easier editing features to the original lay-out and icon sizes. Seems a simple solution. I have absolutely no confidence that the goofballs at GooTube are capable of coming up with a simple solution that keeps users and advertisers happy.
So, it looks as though boycotts and departures to other video streaming sites are absolutely inevitable.
It might be wise to sell your shares in Google. If they continue to perform at these levels, the company is doomed.
