Don’t read too much of this idiocy, it will infuriate you and your head will explode.  Suffice to say, these people are pure dilettantes.  So here’s their award: And here’s my response to the whole stupid thing:

The Return of the Dilly the Dilettante of the Week Award

It’s been a while since I’ve awarded a Dilly to anyone (sorry about that).  But thanks to Deane Galbraith, I proffer this as a worthy recipient: The author of this dissertation received a doctorate at an American university in February 2018: “SATANIC INFLUENCES IN THE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN A POST-MODERN CONSUMER SOCIETY ABSTRACT This …

Dilly the Dilettante Winner of the Week: Jordan Peterson

Kevin Swanson: Winner of this Month’s Dilly the Dilettante Award

For this: An extreme right-wing American pastor has claimed that it would be better for parents to “hang a millstone” around their childrens’ necks and drown them “at the bottom of the sea” than let them read Harry Potter.  Kevin Swanson, speaking at the National Religious Liberties Conference in Des Moines, said the whole of …

Perry Noble: This Year’s Dilly the Dilettante Award Winner

Perry has recently asserted that the 10 Commandments were in need of rewriting, and did so- effacing their meaning with the aplomb of a true dilettante. So, Perry (why do people like this even have a congregation and just how ignorant are his flock that someone doesn’t rise and say ‘Perry, you don’t know what …

The Dilly the Dilettante Award, Twitter Theology that Makes Me Sigh, and Now, Eisegete This!

Every now and again someone earns a Dilly, for dilettantism.  And every now and again someone’s tweetings make me sigh.  But there’s a third category of irritants and these are the Eisegetes.  In thinking of what kind of award that lot deserve I’ve come up with ‘Eisegete This!’  (With thanks to Carl Sweatman for the …

Wallenda: This Week’s Dilly the Dilettante of the Week Award Winner

Listen in to his ‘prayer’ to Jesus the ‘Sorcerer’….    Boy, oh boy, does he get the Dilly! {HT Michael Acidri on the FB}

This Week’s Winner of the ‘Dilly the Dilettante’ Award

And boy is it a doosie.  This email was sent to Francesca…. Two things to note… the Bible wasn’t written in English, so the whole premise is stupid.  Just rankly stupid.  Little wonder the ‘book’ hasn’t gotten much notice.  And second, Francesca gets more nutbag email than anyone in the history of the 21st century …

Someone in the KJV Only Camp Has Gone Insane(er) : ‘PocketDoctrines’ Wins This Week’s Dilly the Dilettante Award

For, according to James McGrath, the ignoramuses at ‘PocketDoctrines’ are actually asserting that the KJV is better than the originals- for a list of reasons which demonstrate their inability to think clearly. ‘PocketDoctrines’ must be an assemblage of dilettantes who don’t know anything about how books (from scrolls) developed.  Nor do they know how to …

The ‘Dilly the Dilettante of the Week Award’ Winner!

The Discovery ‘News’!  Well done!!!!!!  (and by ‘well’ I mean profoundly ignorantly and sub-intelligently) – Jesus, as described in the New Testament, was most likely crucified on Friday April 3, 33 A.D. The latest investigation, reported in the journal International Geology Review, focused on earthquake activity at the Dead Sea, located 13 miles from Jerusalem. …

And This Week’s Winner of the ‘Dilly the Dilettante Award’: NPR

Why?  Because instead of covering the lunacy of Harold Camping and the other maniacs announcing the ‘end of the world’ from the perspective of some actual biblical scholar or other, they’ve simply pandered to Camping’s crowd and given him far more press and notice than he and his dilettantish and idiotic theories deserve. In other …

And This Week’s Winner of the ‘Dilly the Dilettante Award’ Is…

Mr Christian Zionist Obama Birds! The other entries were close, but our panel of judges decided that the rank ignorance of this Dilly Nominee surpassed the insanity of the others.  Congratulations to our Loser ‘Winner’!!!!!   Here’s your sign, and wear it with shame pride.

In the Running for the ‘Dilly the Dilettante’ of the Week Award!

Sometimes the Dilly’s just fall into your lap.  Take this example- I’m not going to link to it because it doesn’t deserve the traffic.  But the screenshot tells the story.  Someone who doesn’t know the Bible has superimposed their idiotic Christian Zionist mentality onto it and then piled that nonsense onto the poo of politics.  …

This Week’s Dilly Winner

No you aren’t.  No he isn’t.  So here’s your Dilly!

Dilly Award – the Dilettantish Publisher Edition

There’s so much wrong here, and they don’t even know it.  First of all, The Geneva Bible of 1599 is a revision of the 1564 edition.  Second, Luther had nothing to do with it.  Third, there’s no such thing as a ‘Luther Edition’ of the Geneva Bible.  Luther was dead decades before the Geneva Bible …

Staring into the Well: This Week’s Dilly Winner

If you need an example of the phenomenon in historical Jesus studies known as ‘gazing into the well and seeing one’s own reflection,’ this is it. That isn’t Jesus that Fugelsang sees, but himself.  The historical Jesus is unknowable.  We have only texts from partisans who had no interest in portraying the Jesus of History, …

Another Dilettante Who’s Pretending to Be A Biblical Exegete: The ‘Prof’ Who Accuses God of Raping Mary

And make no mistake, that’s exactly what Sprankle is saying.  No consent = rape.  But what the imbecile ignores is that Mary does in fact give consent to the operation of the Holy Spirit: Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel …

This Month’s Dilly Winner

I haven’t seen a more ignorant statement on the subject of theology for a good while.  So, precious heretical Canadian modalist, here’s your Dilly.  It’s well deserved.

Michelle Bachmann: Winner of This Week’s Dilly Award

Politicians should never pretend to be theologians.  Because they aren’t.  And Bachmann is a prime example. While speaking last week on the Last Days radio program “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” former GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann linked political advocacy on the left with the rise of the Antichrist. Bachmann said that Donald Trump’s opponents, …
