Weirdly, Phil Plait expresses some of the same sentiments that I did in my last post. I probably shouldn’t have consented to those Borg implants.
The Church of Illuminated Astronomy » « In which the obnoxious atheist addresses his critics, and makes a polite suggestion to his fellow bloggers
You do know why Phil so heavily denounces those people who believe in Alien Mind-Reading Beams From Outer Space.
He’s part of the conspiracy to conceal the Truth.
Phil also puts Bratz dolls on par with Mormonism?
Those borg implants work pretty good.
Actually, from recent readings of the BA blog, I get the feeling that Phil and PZ have actually melted into one mental entity via long range/long term telepathic exposure facilitated by that Weblog Awards contest they held last year over the best science blog :p
Well, although my lone voice hardly matters, I enjoy reading both!
Borg implants are something you consent to getting?
Christian Burnham says
Everyone: Show the Bad Asstronomer some love (or at least conceal your withered and emaciated atheistic black hearts for long enough to pretend like you care).
Phil Plait, aka The Bad Astronomer says
Heh. Chris Pirillo blogged on the same topic yesterday, and I was prepping my own entry when I saw his.
I get pretty frustrated when people extrapolate wildly from what I actually wrote. In a microcosm, it’s exactly the problem we have with antiscience in general.
Most of the time, it’s not even an extrapolation. People just perceive the statements they’re most opposed to, then start popping out non sequiturs.
Consent is futile! You will be asimiliated into the blog consciousness.
Are you sure it’s not just the usual Illithid psionic powers operating? Or were you merely suggesting the Borg implants option as a diversionary tactic to stop people realising the tentacular truth?
Now we see the wisdom of Larry Moran’s decision to avoid assimilation into the borgian ScienceBlogs.

Wait – I am confused here. Bad Astronomy is not part of the SciBorg collective. Neither is the Lockergnome. I will just go with “great minds think alike.”

Borg implants? Illithid psionic powers? I never got either of these. Appears like the rest of the world did though. My shrink put on me pills for believing my thoughts were on display. Maybe not so paranoid afterall./
