The Worst Article You’ll Read All Day

Peter Odoyo, a member of the World e-Parliament, has a op-ed piece titled “Kenya: The Death of Religion And Rise of Atheism in the West” in The Nation (Nairobi).

It has some great lines in it.

On Christopher Hitchens:

He attended Oxford University and was a well-known communist sympathiser. He has published widely.

After talking about what Richard Dawkins and Hitchens say in their books, he moves on to other perceived attacks on his faith:

When I read several of the tabloids in the cities, I found further examples of assaults on the basic tenets of the Bible. Women legally marrying women, and men legally marrying men. Superstars were the most notorious or, perhaps, the most visible.

Is this decadence or modernity? I have seen jealous men fighting in bars over other men and women killing one another over love for other women. Where will the children come from? Will the idea of natural fathers and natural mothers ever exist again in the West?

It gets better:

Obviously, this is contrary to all the teachings in the Bible and points to a future where the West will be able to create, say, super-soldiers or to recreate the likes of Albert Einstein.

Super-soldiers?! Awesome. And why would it be such a bad thing to recreate someone like Einstein?

There’s more:

Sometimes I wonder whether there is a conspiracy between scientists and the gay community. Is this how the women married to women and the men married to men hope to create? Is scientific research driving the march of atheism and death of religion in the West?

He found out about The Plan!

To paraphrase Bjorn, who submitted the link: If there was a conspiracy, you’d think the scientists would be dressing better.

Odoyo also inflates how the atheist books are selling:

The few voices like that of Peter Lewis who writes for the Independent newspaper of London (circulation 500,000 papers per day) are drowned out by the aggressive atheists who sell over five million copies of their books worldwide.

The Wall Street Journal said the number was more like one million.

(Thanks to Bjorn for the link!)

    Haha! Yeah, because no one has ever fought or killed due to heterosexual relationships. Now, where did my blinders go?

    You’re right Hemant, Odoyo has discovered The Plan! We’ll have to initiate The Plan earlier than expected. Instead of launching on December 27, the first publish date of Darwin’s Origin of Species, we must send forth our hordes NOW!

    Open the basement doors of science buildings in universities around the world and release our army of millions of gay, self-cloning, super-soldier, super-genius subatomic theoretical physicists who laugh at pain, shrug off bullets, kill without mercy and revolutionize our views of the quantum realm! Mmwhoohoohohohahahaaaa!!! Today Cambridge, tomorrow Nairobi!! Mmwhoohoohohohahahaaaa!!!

    But send one over to my place. I’ve been wanting to redecorate and I could use some advice.

    Way to put the “Super” in Super-Soldier!

    Now would they really need bullets, or would the biting criticism of one’s wardrobe be enough to force the opponent to give up?

    Bjorn,
    That’s rather Bright humor, I like it.

    I read this yesterday, and IIRC, he got wrong the titles of the two books mentioned. He called Dawkin’s book “God’s Delusions.” ::shakes head::

    Is that you, olvlzl?

    So science answers something and religious people don’t like it, so they call it a conspiracy? Now that’s lame!
