Pathetic Parables


This is a silly little thing really, but it does underscore the… well, I’m not sure really – gullibility, rank stupidity maybe? Or maybe the principle that is rife on Conservapedia – why let a few pesky facts get in the way of a good story? Now, I don’t mind twisting a few facts to suit one’s needs  – we all do that – but when simple irrefutable facts are ignored, one has to raise one’s eyebrows.

Such is the case with everybody’s favourite swabbie, Conservapedia administrator Karajou (so much for the “use your real first name and initial” rule, hey Brian?). Now Mr Angry, as we’ve come to know and love him, recently posted a pretty little parable on his talk page. You’ve probably seen it yourself. You might even know that the whole thing has been proven to be a pretty lame fake. Of course, nothing like this is going to get in the way of Brian wanting to make a point and so he blunders forth.

The parable begins:

This Happened In Germany Years Before Hitler Took Over:

‘Let me explain the problem science has with religion. ‘ The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand.

‘You’re a Christian, aren’t you, son?’

‘Yes sir, ‘the student says.”

It then goes on about how this good, clean Christian student goes on to trounce (with very dodgy logic) his “atheist professor.” All well and fine, until you get to the clincher:

The student was Albert Einstein.

Once again, I’m left bereft of words to sum up, when Brian has done such a great job illustrating my point. Either the man thinks Einstein is a Christian, which is not beyond the realms of possibility, or he’s willing to post anything that conforms to his twisted worldview, or he’s just a moron who can do little more than “stimulus – response.”

About PsyGremlin

PsyGremlin is a former Conservapedia sysop (although the position was earned nefariously), stand up comedian, DJ, and is currently a self-employed financial adviser, who impersonates a responsible adult at least 5 days a week. However, highlighting and poking fun at the crazies out there remains his first love. Well besides pork crackling. And custard. And cricket.

    Wait, don’t be so harsh.

    First, it’s Brian Macdonald. A poor loser who spent God knows how many years in the Navy, with the same rank. Second, that’s probably a chain e-mail he got, and, as it is a lot easier to copy and paste…. voilà!

    Einstein was Jewish.
