One of our egg-heads on here used the subject word to describe a preacher.
I had to look it up for a precise meaning, but I figured that it had something to do with a vacuum in the head before I did.
I was correct!
The pretension that you know what is ultimately correct about religion, or that it is an ongoing revelation and may never bee fully exposed, is surely egg-headedness--think that may be a word?
I love knowledge of facts, but have little use for logical and illogical meandering by semi-educated philosophers.
I do not listen long to TV preachers of any type, nor any other type, who expound on why they are the only correct method to think about soul salvation. They don't know, but use the word "faith" considerably.

It is almost impossible for a knowledgeable person to discuss 'religion' without using the word 'faith'. Reading other's opinions enlightens one. You don't always have to agree with their opinion . . . but to question one's use of the word 'faith' when discussing religion? Oh well.

Dictionary definition of 'faith'.

1. confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another's ability.
2. belief that is not based on proof: He had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact.
3. belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings of religion: the firm faith of the Pilgrims.
4. belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit, etc.: to be of the same faith with someone concerning honesty.
5. a system of religious belief: the Christian faith; the Jewish faith.
6. the obligation of loyalty or fidelity to a person, promise, engagement, etc.: Failure to appear would be breaking faith.
7. the observance of this obligation; fidelity to one's promise, oath, allegiance, etc.: He was the only one who proved his faith during our recent troubles.
8. Christian Theology. the trust in God and in His promises as made through Christ and the Scriptures by which humans are justified or saved.

Not one of your blogs or posts has made sense to anyone except d.smith, nitpicker, bladderq, and you.

$Smith, $mithpicker, & $Dollaraday$ coincidentally Eye-wink all speak Dollarese (i.e., "knowledge of facts Puzzled , but hav[ing] little use for logical [that's evident] and illogical meandering" = stringing together words with little or no meaningful connection).

But it does keep him happy talking to himself and having "someone" answer and understand him -- "someone" to share the misery with. $'s only happy when he's complaining, and now he's found a way to complain in triplicate. I have to be careful not to egg him on! Laughing out loud

I'm afraid his egg is scrambled. Laughing out loud

$Smith had egg on his face when he said, "I wouldn't agree with smithe unless he was right! No two people are the same." He forgot to reply with his $Nitpicker$ name. Laughing out loud

"Smithe" (Smith with an e) -- Another "friend" of $'s? Puzzled

The term egghead reached its peak currency during the 1950s (originally the term carried the connotation of "bleeding heart," socialist liberal with the morality of Nietzsche) and is rarely used now, having been replaced by other anti-intellectual epithets such as nerd and geek.

"anti-intellectual" -- That does describe old $.

You have been pushed around by these holier than thou jerks enough! Keep up the firing back mate. Git Real thinks he knows everything and has the right to make decisions for everybody. Well, guess what GitReal- you got a new ax grinders who does not like all the things you authoritatively spout out. Amd sorry Git - I do see you and Densie are friends but she disagrees with you some and tries to ground you down from your imaginative thrown in "heaven." But Dollar has been shafted. He deserves his say too and I miss it!

Someone has got to take up for the people you all hate on all the time. Now it is me. What is the next item on the agenda.....? No such thing as global warming? Come on, I want to hear where you stand on everything, because from what I have read so far, you are a selfish moron.

Who is densie? ground you down? "imaginative thrown in heaven"? ax grinders. Man make some sense, proof read, I hope you read better then you write. After reading and trying to understand what you're trying to say, I have to say you're living up to your name, gitwrong.

I'm certain that Denise will be more than proud to have you defending her against me. Yup, I'm going to have to find me a new victim since you are standing between Denise and I. Gee, I can no longer beat her up intellectually or punish her ever so severely for disagreeing with me. Oh no.... what will Git do?

Gee Denise... You can put your guns down now. I've been disarmed against my rampant attacks by you. You've been saved by a far superior power than I. I will miss you my dear punching bag. I bid you fair well! Eye-wink

But Dollar has been shafted. He deserves his say too and I miss it!

You have to appreciate the fact that Git Real destroyed Dollar and that he will never be heard from again in any way, shape, or form. Could you be next Git Wrong? Evil

Here Git Wrong... Let me start you out on the right foot this morning.

Abortion Is Murder - Global Warming Is A Farce - Hillary Is A Wannabe Man - Homosexuals Are Twisted - Git Wrong Is A Bed Wetting Pansy

There... do you feel better? Your existence and purpose in life is extended for another day.

Hugs & Kisses,

Git Smiling

I didn't realize that $ is posting under yet another name. I think that he has thrown away his medicine. Maybe it's time for another "rest" at his favorite facility! Laughing out loud

If this isn't $, then maybe Mr. AllWrong is his relative? Psychosis often runs in families.

Thank you for that little bit of autobiography, Dollar. Now we know a little bit more about how you feel.

But what has that to do with anything? Either you can defend your position (whatever it is) or you cannot. If you cannot, well, then, you cannot. If you can, then you will be engaging in the very sort of thing that you refer to as "eggheadedness"--however inept you may be at it.

And if you really mean to say that you have no use for logic, well, then....

And your suggestion that these preachers "do not know" that which they assert clearly presupposes some sort of knowledge on your part. That is, you can be in a position to know that they do not or cannot know only if you are in some privileged position of knowledge. Else, you are emoting once again. But then, what was your original complaint against my "presumptiveness"? Please enlighten us.

Thanks very much for the "semi-educated philosopher" remark. Since you are a professing non-egghead, one might wonder what you hold up as a criterion for an education.

You really are a hoot, you know that?
