Good Bad Example 3

This dude is a font of whatever the opposite of wisdom is. Part 3 in my series on the babbling incoherencies that fuel my pitiful, antisocial personality:

"This is one of the strangest blog communities I've run across in awhile. You're all paranoid how much power the government has over you, yet you think that half of the populace should shut up and let the other half rule them as they see fit. You whine about how Christians should get all the credit for inventing science, yet you can't accept the results that science has produced which overwhelmingly show that the Earth's age is measured in the billions of years and all living things share a common ancestry because it conflicts with a simplistic reading of your holy texts. You complain that women won't fight for liberty, yet most of you are dead set against the war against Islamic terrorism."

He attempts to use the "you have contradictory positions!!1!" attack, not once, not twice, but THRICE in a row. Is it just because I've been programming LISP for 2 days, or does this look like a computer generated list? Anyway, it's interesting because each one of the attempts contains a different logical fallacy. Collectively, they also make the mistake of treating a heterogenous group as if it were homogenous.
