|Poe's Law |
Similar to Murphy's Law, Poe's Law concerns internet debates, particularly regarding religion or politics.
"Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won't mistake for the real thing."
In other words, 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.
The following is an actual Internet post to Biblically defend a flat Earth:
"All I was saying was that either the earth is flat, and the bible is correct, or the earth is round, and the bible is incorect, i'm going to study the issue more and deside for myself which route I want to take. Either Atheist evolutionist, who agrees with all of mainstream sciences, or flat earth litteral bible believer.
I'm leaning toward being an atheist, because if I can't believe the bible to be completly litteraly true, then I can't believe Jesus when he speaks about heaven, etc..
That would make the moon landing a fake, and pretty much all of modern science false..."
Part 2: Nothing to do, so I searched "Worst President" - it is quite a historical review - although from the right and from the left all roads lead to George W. as being the worst for different reasons.
Part 3: This "almost a Trillion Dollars" to bail out financial institutions - stinks of Who is going to sneak in - steal the debt, as it becomes better - and more collectible - Goldman Sachs?
any other Favorite Sons?
This country always gets carried away by "Solution Men" without even thinking the consequences, as to "how it all will end" - I'm sure we'll have some congressional committees look into it after the fact. There are already thousands of "front end crooks" who worked in the finance and real estate industries and live in McMansions, with golden gates, who are never going to Jail. We American's voluntarily lay down to get raped!
- let's call this "Truth in Humor!"
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
.....and justice for all!... The Debitors - they signed the Mortgage - they should be responsible
....and justice for all!... The Villians - they should pay deep penalties including "time"
...and justice for all!...The Politicians - who can be traced to Lobbyists - for deeds against the all the people to benefit the few
....and Justice for all!... The Taxpayer should not have to pay for the problems created by the above.
The Debitor's, Villians - Politicians and Lobbyists are shitting on the flag, daily, as they pull across their right hand to cover their heart. - amen
PS. If you go to Church on Sunday, then you are forgiven for all the nasty things you do to your fellow man - Monday thru Saturday.
