I’m often asked why, if I’m such an atheist and anarchist, I don’t take all the professors of religion to task in the Paleosphere, The LowCarbSpere.
My answer is always the same: I Love Blasphemy.
Everytime they put the “God” of logical, natural selection evolution over their professed belief in a cute fairy tale, I already know I’ve won. We’ve won. Public recognition—devoid of embarrassment—may take 100 years, but Creationism is dead, and ID was its last breath. Ideas come to pass. I think you’re better off just recognizing it, not making too big-a-deal. Let nature take its course, already very speedy given social network dynamics.
People will pick at paleo forever—and it deserves it—and I actually enjoyed reading a few recent critiques yesterday (the more critiques, the better)—but it will NOT be picked at materially in its embrace of ‘logical, natural selection evolution’.
Imagine that. Imagine it as a profound moral teaching of religious people.
Hey, critique the livin’ FUCK out of paleo. Please. Hurry now.
