It was too much for him. Montreal was hosting a huge gathering of nonbelievers and Gollum had to climb up out of his squalid cavern to blink in the bright light at the horde of atheists.
Oops! Did I say “Gollum”? It's a natural mistake. I meant to say “Dennis,” as in “Dennis Markuze” (also known as “DM” or “David Mabus” or “Atheist Wars” or even, in a likely attempt to avoid ever more effective twit-filters, “Anonymous”). He apparently cannot help himself as he stalks those with whom he disagrees, particularly P.Z. Myers, who is decidedly Dennis's bête noire. He's dabbled in harassment here at Halfway There, too, where nearly two hundred deranged comments have appeared under his byline since December 2009.
His venture into the world of humans was not without its consequences. As a result, Tessa Brown is my newest hero. She confronted Dennis Markuze and she shot him.
It was only with a camera, however. You can't have everything.
And now we have a new face of lunacy to contemplate. Yes, it's rather ordinary, but what's going on behind the face is decidedly not pretty. It's chaos back there, and medical intervention is definitely indicated. (Remember, I am a doctor! [Okay, the degree is in math education, but you're just quibbling!])
Dennis needs help. Lots of help. Or jail time. But I suspect the latter would not do him much good. And so far no one has managed to talk him into getting counseling. He's too busy defending his version of God. Back in July, Dennis favored me with the following comment:
DM has left a new comment on your post "Believing your lying eyes":He then promptly posted another half-dozen incoherent and profane rants. I replied (though one should never reply to trolls) in something less than my most polite manner:
As I said, we are going to EXTERMINATE you and your entire family if you continue to talk about RELIGION OR GOD....
this your FINAL WARNING...
Dennis, you're a dumb asshole who doesn't even understand the meaning of "final warning". No one should listen to what someone that stupid says about god or anything else. (Who let you out of the retirement home for insane trolls?)Now we all know what Dennis Markuze looks like. It can't be too long before the T-shirt gets updated.
