Wormtongue – what Adam Lee hates seeing in the mirror

When you look at the whole menagerie of A+, freefromthoughtblogs and Skepchick and the various toilet slaves, snake oil peddlers, shills, frauds and confidence tricksters that squirm around it like maggots in carrion, it is a daunting task to try and determine which is the most obsequious toady of the lot.

I think that title has to belong to Adam Lee / DaylightAtheism though. He’s come from nowhere in the last few months, but with sheer bloody minded determination has made even yay-yap slugs like oolon look like ethical pillars of independent thinking, dignity and self-respect.

Adam’s first claim to fame was the glossy, clinically fact-free, propaganda advertorial he managed to inject into Salon – and leave a sour taste in many people’s mouths that Salon too can be consigned to the pile of online media portals that have “editorial integrity” as a marketing buzzword and not something that they actually waste any time on practising.

Rational_Wiki_406

It’s called “sarcasm”

Wrote previously that RationalWiki is anything but and seems to be completely owned by baboons. Another minor teacup storm seems to have broken out. This time, steamrolling non-partisan information on Atheism+.

What is there to discuss here? Not a lot. RationalWiki has shown beyond any reasonable doubt that it is virulently ideological and that the only safe position to take is to treat any information it contains as suspect and that it cannot be taken at face value without verification from more credible external sources.

I just want to document choice excerpts from the Talk:Atheism_Plus page for posterity – (more…)

Quantifying the incidence of gratuitous snarl and fear/pity language on Butterflies & Wheels

-= ABSTRACT =-

Westernised professional wailing (唱板板, or “singing the banban”1) as a career and lifestyle choice is one of the most challenging, yet least known, branches of the classical performing arts. It distinguishes itself from its eastern roots – that of professional mourners hired for funerals as public showing of the social status of the deceased – by being far more entrepre’neurial and a business model in its own right. It is a complex, multidisciplinary form of expression that distills the finer subtleties from Munchausen Syndrome and certain aspects of HPD into its own unique brand psychodramatic theatre. Notable laureates of this school have been Glenn Beck, Anita Bryant, Joseph McCarthy, Jenny McCarthy (no relation), Catharine MacKinnon and Fred Phelps – those that have taken the mundane, the nonsensical and the nonexistant and, through applied hyperbole, hysteria and robotic repetition of fear-mongering and artificial “us and them” division, have escalated non-problems to the status of cancers that threaten to undermine society itself, thus ensnaring and captivating an audience of the feeble and the powerless that are incapable of articulating their bottled up angst unassisted. As with all styles of thespian expression, language is the primary tool and here the language of demonisation and persecution is the key to establishing a stage presence and an unforgettable persona in the eyes of the target audience. Yet this language is too seldom analysed, let alone quantified. This paper attempts to enumerate the frequency with which the language of demonisation and persecution occurs in one particular contemporary ideological ghetto – that of the collective that has formed around freefromthoughtblogs, Skepchick and it’s mutant offspring Atheism+.

“We’re popular. Really we are. Please believe us.”

The Atheism+ shills are still bombarding the web on any white space that’s available and still conning gullible web-zines and newspapers for free advertorials on the new, improved brand of snake oil. Building a bogus presence that is somehow representative of the greater community out of snappy soundbites and flatulent wind.

Whilst the chumps at these journals may fall for the hogwash by abdicating editorial responsibility, and the laziness of not creating genuine content instead of relying on cheap filler, the unfortunate and very visible reality is that the greater community is now far more capable of spotting cheap confidence tricksters and is refusing to buy into it at all. And the really grim reminders of reality are found in the oddest of places, such as UrbanDictionary

On September 3rd, someone posted an entry, rather accurate if snide, of Atheism+. It took the subnormals at Atheism+ over a month to notice and react in the all to familiar manner –

Self-explanatory. Go get ’em. ‘Cause that’s non-“non-existent” misogyny.

AtheismPlus – synchronised individuality

This is incredibly amusing.

Some weeks ago, the Naked Emperor, coming down with a case of gretachristinitis, trumpeted the addition a co-dependentblogger to the original baboon board – one Chris Clarke who is, apparently, “a phenomenal writer, a true progressive, and a committed environmentalist” – but regardless, Myers’ private little North Korea has been chugging along, business as usual. As a follow-up to Myers’ most recent outburst of demagogue tripe, reader Quawonk deposited this latest dung ball in a comment here

“I do get how uncomfortable it can be to have data accumulate against a proposition which you desperately wanted to be true.”

Gobsmacking as usual. This is not a sudden epiphany of personal revulsion, but just another shallow dig at horrible MRAs – the socially acceptable Jewish substitute for the freefromthoughtblogs Sturmabteilung. Either completely devoid of self-awareness, or conscious of the hypocrisy and simply not caring – end result is still the same. This piece of nonsense can be found at the following link, and it is recommended to read it for yourself prior to proceeding –
