"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."

well, I was certainly fooled.

See that's the problem... even if you write things that are completely over the top and stupid, it will still sound like something the fundies could spew out. Actually, the more ridiculous you get, the more realistic it sounds...

I think that's the point. It had me fooled!

Why can I never be the dude who comes up with a great idea like this?

I guess I'm just not cool enough.

Sadly, no....

But I'm kind of jealous b/c I'd like to play it.

I have a hard time believing what people are serious about and not serious about because I basically had a coworker (21 year old gay guy) tell me that things like carbon dating and evolution can't really be proven. They are just theories so you can't really tell if those dinosaur bones fit together or are even from the same creature. There isn't any way to tell if they are 3 thousand years old or 3 million years old. None of it can be proven so it's all just guesses.

WHAT? He was totally serious.

Well, to be fair, carbon dating is inexact. However, it's exact enough to tell the difference between 300 and 3 million years for sure.

Plus or minus 1 million.

It's also rarely (really, never) used as the ONLY way to tell how old something is. We also use other ways - stratification, other element dating, etc.

The point her co-worker was trying to make is that because science is sometimes inexact and often asks more questions than it answers, it is obviously all BS. Which is lazy thinking and laughable.

And now I know of Poe's law and that's awesome.
