(we interrupt this blog post to acknowledge the wonderful shout out from Reed over at Unorthodox Atheism. Very nice mention, thank you. Right back atcha!)
Where was I?
OH yes. Over at Whatever (John Scalzi's blog- if you don't know who he is, go to amazon and buy everything he's ever written. You'll thank me.), John allows Vox Day to post as part of a continuing "Big Idea" series. (that was a long 'a href', but I couldn't figure out a more convenient place to stop. Here is another - Wil Wheaton also recommends Scalzi.)
I'm not going to bother taking on the column itself - Scalzi's commenters do a fine job, and I think I've done enough of the "LOOK HOW RIGHT I AM" posting to last a little while. Go read the post @ Whatever and enjoy. It's actually pretty fun reading, and gives good insight into the mind of a believer and the incompatibility with reality that's shown.
Here's an excerpt:
On the other hand, it seems that proper little theists are absolutely not supposed to describe their targets as “The Circle of Jerkdom”, much less “The Four Horsemen of the Bukkakelypse”.
I love that line. Go vox day, with your hilarious edginess! Reference group masturbation and the hilarious Japanese porn styling of bukake! That's gonna win us irrational and immoral atheists over!
(okay, I DID think it was funny. :))
