THE LIE: Heliocentrism

This is funny. I see that nobody has corrected me and pointed out that the lie would have to be heliocentrism; geocentrism is the truth they are purportedly defending.

Another instance of Poe's Law, I suppose.

“Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won't mistake for the real thing."

I would just add that the same would have to be true of fundy atheism.

But it's not funny; it's boring.

Also, how can you/we be sure that, misguided though it is, it's at least being presented by someone who really does believe what he's saying?

Ilíon, I think it would be funnier if I knew the person believed it.

Some of it's funny. See also Fixed Earth (which is linked to from the site linked here and seems to be serious).
