New Chick Tract

Jack Chick does global warming denial.

As a bonus, Chick’s “Was it ‘Global Warming’ or God’s Warning?” argues that extreme weather events in the US are due to the US not being friendly enough to Israeli interests. Presumably if we slaughter more Muslims, we will have fewer tornadoes.

    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men…

    You are so right, Dave. It really is like that.

    I see theists have stopped being such a vast majority of the world's population that they can argue that sheer weight of numbers mean they are more likely to be right than atheists.

    It turns out that it is the godless who are the majority after all.

    Ah, yes. For over forty years now Chick tracts have been the gold standard for Christian crackpottery. How reassuring that some things never change. After forty years and thousands of tracts, not a single glimmer of rationality has penetrated this inner sanctum of invincible crankdom. Flat earthers, dowsers, trance channelers, crystal healers, and UFO abductees come and go, but Chick tracts remain constant–the North Star of absolute hogwash.

    We undervalue crackpots. They serve an important purpose. They are like the dragons on old maps that marked terrae incognitae. Here be dragons. Go too far in this direction, and you will be eaten. By producing pure paradigms of authentic flapdoodle, they mark the extreme boundaries between thought and cognitive hallucination.

    As Charles Pierce notes in his classic commentary Idiot America, one of the worst features of our present intellectual milieu is the mainstreaming of crackpots. Incoherent, paranoid rants run in prime time and goofballs that formerly would have been relegated to a corner soapbox, now stalk the halls of Congress. When fringe-dwellers are mainstreamed, there is no more mainstream–and no fringe either. So, here's to crackpots, and may they long be marginalized.

    And yet, he's never been shy about condemning Jews to hell. See his tract, "Where's Rabbi Waxman?"

    Of course, the cognitive dissonance in that world ceased to surprise me a long time ago.

    The egalitarian nature of the web has had some unfortunate side effects:

    1. It's given them a platform;

    2. It's enabled them to organize and exert real political influence;

    3. It's made them more visible. We are now keenly aware that this is a nation of abject morons. Very depressing.
