"Hey you, we've got a monopoly franchise on this business!"
We all know about the above "prophetic" farce. As in all the best farces we find earnest blockheads like Camping, with their wacko projects, played off against knowing and terminally cynical characters. In the latter role we have, of course, PZ Myers and his rabid raiders. The whole fundagelical business just wouldn't be so funny without PZ Myers and co to witness and react to it. And do we need the medicine of a little black humour, for in many ways the extreme antics of the fundamentalists, which they carry out with a straight faced seriousness of purpose, are really no joke at all.
In this blog post PZ brings together the Camping affair with his other favourite buffoon, Ken Ham. The post links to one of Ken Ham's facebook pages. As a rule fundamentalists never see themselves mirrored in other fundamentalists; they are egotistical enough to think of themselves as somehow different and set apart with a monopoly on truth. They continue to show no coyness or embarrassment about themselves; they remain as ebullient and irrepressible as ever: On Ken's facebook page one of his admirers says: "Thank God for true prophets like Mr. Ham!!!;-)
