Thank you for reading, J-Dog.

I have submitted it - several times. :( I won't give up.

You should read the one I'm thinking of dedicating to Dembski! ;-) It's quite a, er, change of pace (and based upon a true story).

I think a shameless plug at Pharyngula would be in order.

I did plug it there! :(

My writing career sucks. ;-)

I'll try again. I do try to keep my shameless plugs on topic. But thanks for reading! (You guys could plug me too, you know. I need all the help I can get. Did I mention that my writing career sucks?)

Good one... The problem with parodying fundamentalists is you can't tell the difference anymore. Poe's Law comes into play.

I was knocking heads with creationists back in the seventies. Some fundamentalist group on campus at Emporia State got funding to bring the infamous Duane Gish for lectures and debate. He "won" the debate, since most of the audience were Troo Beeleevers who were scientifically illiterate. At his lecture, I questioned him about the different creation stories in Genesis 1 and 2. Blithely ignoring Occam's Razor, he claimed that Genesis 2 was a detailed report while chapter 1 was a general overview. I consulted my Abington Bible Commentary later to remind myself that Genesis 1 is high, lofty, grand, poetic; while 2 makes the Lord out to be some kind of fumblethumbs who doesn't know what the hell he is doing.

No rational person with any modicum of education can believe either one of them. The fact that there are people that do merely supplies evidence to corroborate Asimov's Axiom: "There is no belief, however foolish, which will not gather its faithful adherents who will defend it to the death."

I'm into science fiction and fantasy, but I won't touch the "Left Behind" series. One of the authors, Tim Lehaye( I spit and curse at the mention of his name) was on the wrong side of the Little Rock creationism trial back in '81-'82.

Wowee, Cats Staff, I thought you meant E.A. Poe’s command: “Should you ever be drowned or hung, be sure and make a note of your sensations.”

The Other Poe's Law: “No matter how bizzare, outrageous, or just plain idiotic a parody of a Fundamentalist may seem, there will always be someone who cannot tell that it is a parody, having seen similar REAL ideas from real religious/political Fundamentalists.” I would agree.

According to the Bible, the world was created during a baseball game: In the Big Inning.

Hahahahahaha!

Thanks for visiting, Cath. How I do get on dailyKos?
