    Oh, man. I thought that was going to be about my Mt. Olympus faux pas. Someone should warn this guy about The Onion.

    I saw the account on TV. The author brought a copy of his book to trial.

    I’m quite certain that if everyone in the world were to magically* turn atheist overnight, the news reported here would become only a little more fact-filled.

    * Irony!

    I was under the impression that it was the

    “special to the raving atheist”

    tag that was used to mark those posts where some facts have been substituted for non-facts to better illustrate a point.

    what a pussy. Everyone klnows that the Raving Atheist loves subtle satire. Especially the “unaborted atheist”. That shit is hilarious. Some people actually think thet he’s against abortion. Dumbasses.

    Choob – would you go out of your way to outwardly support a position who personally find without merit, or objectionable? Of course not. Why would someone CONTINUOUSLY do something like this, especially in the public view, that would color the way that his readers perceive him?

    What’s the payoff? Will he emerge one day to say “ah hell, I’m actually pro-choice!” Alrighty then…good on you? What did that accomplish?

    He’s brought a lot of theists into his fold, so if he exposes their anti-choice position as idiotic, what has he truly managed to accomplish? A vast majority of us already find their positions on most things from Abortion to ziplock baggies to be retarded.

    Only an idiot or a godidiot would not realize immediately that this site was satirical.

    We have encountered a form of intelligence. Beware: Form could be Republican in nature. Form has no argument so has resorted to Republican-tested tactic of name-calling. Proceed with extreme caution.

    Said form seems to be saying that all writings on RA site are composed, at least in part, of manufactured quotes. This has led to increased tensions in the readership of RA – none want to be the next reader to experience a ‘gotcha’, where RA has managed to fabricate a quote and slide it into an otherwise factual retelling of an actual occurrence. RA seems to be taking lessons straight from the authors of the Bible. Details at 11…

    RA and bad satire apologists unite with Bush and God apologists to battle for freedom to express bad satire Developing…
