A couple of days ago I made this post in response to this stupid post. No biggies, I make a couple of posts a day, sometimes funny, sometimes not. Sometimes funny on purpose. One could say on a furious purpose. Alas, I can't invent some of this shit. He actually meant it. The bigger names in atheism were to go kneel before him and beg forgiveness.
Gag me with a bloody fucking tampon. Anyway, here's what he said:
Good evening ! This thread was meant as an opportunity for some of the bigwigs to clarify their position on the Watson-hating that has been going on at ERV over the last month, and their silence is duly noted.Lawl. He's duly noted their silence. Let me translate that for you. The fact Richard Dawkins doesn't comment on my blog isn't to be duly noted as indicative of anything other than he's Richard Dawkins and I'm that guy who writes on a blog. Keeping in the spirit of things, I'm also making this thread an opportunity for President Obama to address the American people and explain our economic situation.
Congratulations, atheist bloggers, many of you have become the godless exemplars of Poe's law.
The core of Poe's law is that a parody of something is by nature extreme. That makes it impossible to differentiate from sincere extremism.
A corollary of Poe's law is the reverse phenomenon: legitimate fundamentalist beliefs being mistaken for a parody of that belief.Justicar's Law: as a movement grows longer, the probability of a schism because of those in the movement mimicking all the undesirable traits against which they've railed approaches 1.
