There’s this homeschooled scientific illiterate named Dan Nuckols who’s got a blog where he offers dippy anti-science cartoons like this one, amongst other twaddle. Pharyngula readers have been having good fun today knocking the poor dope around, and I, being the mischievous little scamp I am, decided to fuck with him via email. Here’s the email exchange in progress, starting with my response to the linked cartoon.
Subject: I wuz robbed!
You mean I’ve been an atheist evilutionist all this time, and nobody told me about the porn and the sacks of money!? What a ripoff!
Dan: Dude, you are robbed. Of eternal life. Repent and Trust Jesus.
MW: But the Flying Spaghetti Monster hath touched me with his noodly appendage, granting me not only eternal life but all the pizza I can eat without getting fat, and free digital cable! Plus I don’t have to go to Sunday School. Just seemed like the better deal to me all around.
Thanks though. Tell Jesus I suggested he offer some additional perks to the eternal life deal. Say, NBA seasons passes or something. Otherwise eternity can get awful boring without anything to do!
Update: Hours and hours later, and no followup? How pathetic. Maybe this is another example of what Stephen Rogers was calling half-hearted evangelism.
