Expelled Brings the Kooks A-Runnin'

Over at Pharyngula, PZ’s thrown some creationist chum in the water. It’s really not pretty: theists don’t hold up well against science advocates, rational thinkers, and atheists who can quote the Bible chapter and verse.

But before you feel sympathy, remember that the dumbfucks brought it on themselves:

A fair number of creationists must be leaving a certain propaganda movie and getting on to the internet to find targets of their ire, because I’m getting a little surge in hate mail — mostly short, petty whines and


Creationists, much as I’d love to smack down every one of your silly arguments, I can’t possibly do it one by one. Hang around, ask questions in the comments, and take your turn: we’ll eventually get around to dismantling your ludicrous claims.

The fools took him up on that offer. They found out there’s no “eventually” when it comes to Pharyngula readers: the dismemberment is immediate, vicious and complete.

Some other deluded fuckwit sent Michael Shermer a love note that showed just how wide he’d opened his mouth when the Expelled crew ejaculated into it:

Now I truly understand who you atheists and darwinists really are! You people believe that it was okay for my great-grandparents to die in the Holocaust! How disgusting. Your past article about the Holocaust was just window dressing. We Jews will fight to keep people like you out of the United States!

Richard Dawkins was kindly enough to post an open letter to him and to all others who might have swallowed such excretions:

Dear Mr J

Michael Shermer forwarded me a letter from you which suggests that you have unfortunately been taken in by Ben Stein’s mendacious and/or ignorant suggestion that Darwin is somehow to blame for Hitler. I hope you will not mind if I write to you and try to undo this grievous error.

It’s worth reading in full. Unless, of course, you’re one of those who can’t stand any sign of sympathy and human kindness in an atheist.

These people have a definite victim complex, and I think I’m beginning to see where it comes from. They truly are victims: they’re victimized every day by their rabid pastors, by rapacious propaganda pushers, and by their own desperate need to believe they’re special. They’re lied to constantly, and expected to be stupid enough never to question the lie. It must be horrible for them to be faced with any evidence that they’ve been played for suckers.

Instead of confronting that sad reality, they strike out at Dawkins and PZ as the enemy. I’m just vastly amused by the fact that some of them, in trying to destroy those they see as enemies, are going to get exposed to the truth. Some of them will even be strong enough to get royally pissed off at being duped.

The terminally deluded will just get their asses handed to them in a baggie. Fun times.
