Out of step

It can be really annoying to be out of step with how the majority thinks.

They say “The devil’s greatest trick was convincing us he does not exist.”; and I hear, “Atheists like you are the devil’s puppets!”

They say “God saved me!”, and I hear “God saved me, and not any of the others! Woo-hoo!”

They say “God”, and I hear “Repulsive imaginary sadist sky-tyrant… or vague meaningless abstract-concept contradiction… or a synonym for the Universe!” — every damn time they invoke God.

They say “modesty”, and I hear “the nice kind of oppression”; they say “dirty”, and I hear “interesting!”

They say “it was meant to be”; and I hear “We are puppets!” — they say “we were not meant” — and I hear “I have delusions of foreordained meaning!”

They say “the Internet”, and I hear “the land of promise and freedom”; which makes the news sound really weird.

They say “patriotism, and sticking to your guns”; I hear “destructive lumping folly and inflexible idiocy”; they say “flip-flopping cynic”, and I hear “evidence-based and realistic”; worst of all, they keep saying “pessimist” when they clearly mean to say “a realist”!

And when they say anything about mathematics at all, all I hear is “I am a dope!”

Truly, being out of step and arrogant is a tremendous burden.
