I came across Blogs 4 Brownback (via Jones Town) and have been alternating between laughing and cringing. I laugh because of the sheer inanity of it all. I cringe because I’m not sure if these people are serious or not.
The best post is definitely “Heliocentrism is an atheist doctrine.” That’s right; all that crap those science teachers have been shoveling you about the Earth orbiting the Sun is a deception to take you away from Christianity. A brilliant excerpt:
However, for both moral and theological reasons, we should always bear in mind that the Earth does not move. If it moved, we would feel it moving. That’s called empiricism, the experience of the senses. Don’t take my word for it, or the evidence of your own senses, Copernicans. There’s also the Word of the Lord: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.” (1 Chronicles 16:30)
Then there are posted lauding Paul Wolfowitz and arguing that pornographers deserve the death penalty. They question whether anyone has ever flown in outer space, or whether satellites are all just a hoax. In answering the question of why Southern students do poorly in standardized testing, we get the following wisdom:
Northeastern students do better because the tests involve Copernicanism, Darwinism, and other deceptions of the International Leftist Movement. Students in other parts of the country don’t learn as much of this nonsense; thus, although they are actually better-educated, and for less money, too, they fare poorly on tests involving esoteric knowledge of modern pseudoscience and homosexual-influenced literature.
If this is satire, it’s the best thing I’ve seen since Shelley the Republican. It’s only unfortunate that they don’t spend more time talking about Sam Brownback. Now that would be funny.
