I always feel humbled by great examples of atyphia – where precision clarity is expressed in it’s most concise and simple form. Typhon Blue (also) explains in just over three and a half minutes what I have squandered untold thousands of words on.

“In despair I decided to make this video and I know almost no one will listen.”
— Aly Aly at the conclusion of the video
Well, we’ll see about that. I’m just going to leave your words as they are. They say all that needs saying –

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 –

Mere logical fallacies are no longer sufficient to capture the full scope of the collective derangement that pours unchecked out of freefromthoughtblogs, Skepchick and now it’s brain-damaged crack-baby Atheism+. Their cocktail of rabid witch-hunting, indoctrinational disinformation and the nouveau theology of Oppression is birthing its whole own schema of perfidious gobbledygook that defies classification as simply fallacy and deserves its own sub-section in the Skeptics Dictionary – that of logical incoherencies.
A couple, such as ad himinem and reductio ad Watsonum, have been mentioned previously. A broader principle, that of Myers’ law – that what you say to any denizen of their sheltered workshops never has any realistic relation to what they actually hear – has also been postulated and covers the origin of much of the baboons’ general incoherence. Myers’ law is easy enough for anyone to verify by simply attempting to initiate a discussion in any of their forums (degree of difficulty: like falling off a toilet drunk). (more…)

Demonisation of the other is as old a human pursuit as exchanging sex for personal advantage and the quest for mind altering chemicals. Common motivators are personal power plays, petty revenge or the common malice of the Queen bee high school girl. The unacknowledged motivator however is to accentuate the alleged shortcomings of the other, which almost always are trivial in comparison to the character failures of the finger pointer, and thus distract from where the real rot lies.
Zwan’s anti-Justin Vacula petition is a prime example. As discussed previously, this is a case of a pretty worthless exhibit of humanity lacking both the skill and intellect to contribute anything meaningful to life exercising jealous spite to skewer someone that does. And in the broader freefromthoughtblogs perspective, it looks like a case of Goldilocks and the Three Gallows – (more…)
