I Pity you

This is a quote from Thunderf00t in his video Why do people laugh at creationists? (Part 40):

…When i was first confronted with this aggregate knowledge of mankind, my first thought was, “dear god, what a fantastic opportunity to climb to the top; to stand on the shoulders of the giants. to see further than anyone has ever seen before. and my hard work in climbing that mountain has been rewarded with an insight into the universe you couldn’t even begin to fathom. i feel the earth move under my feet. i see the universe from the subatomic to the intergalactic. i see processes from billionths of a second to billions of years. i see the history of the hydrogen that makes up some 2/3 of the organism that is currently making this [statement]. and i dare to hope where they may go in the next billion years. and because of the wonders that i know you will never see, i pity you. i pity people like you, who had this amazing opportunity. people who had won this golden ticket to see the wonders of the universe; an opportunity that few in the history of mankind have ever had. and you willingly turned it down, instead being happy with the fireside stories of some pre-dark age goat herders, about things like killing people for picking up sticks on the wrong day of the week, and dipping your toes and fingers and ears in blood because it was the wishes of some guy who claimed to talk to a god. whose description sounds remarkably like a volcano. dear god, you have wasted your life. i beseech you, as someone who has stood on the top of the mountain: do not waste the rest of it.
