Being a prominent critic of PZ Myer’s isn’t all roses and daffodils. There’s the associated turmoil of being slandered, mocked and marginalized by the corpulent trained seals in PZ’s traveling circus show.
I’m running with the circus seal analogy today because that’s what naturally springs to my mind when I imagine all the misshapen #atheismplus girls in sundresses feeding PZ Myers grapes and wiping the resultant spittle off his beard.
Some folks wonder why I brave the hoary mobs of PZ’s minion. To quote the acclaimed ex-FTB author Al Stefanelli,
For one, I am fucking retired. Retired, meaning I don’t blog for money, don’t write for money and I don’t go on speaking gigs. Additionally, I know I am none of these things they call me and the people in my life that matter to me also know it. Their rants, accusations and attacks against me, as well as their willful ignorance and persistent desire to take my sporadic and occasional writing completely out of context have no bearing on my personal happiness. It’s Game On.
I just took the time to check in over at PZ’s website, aka the No-Tell Motel in Morris, and the post with the anonymous serial rape charges against Michael Shermer is still up. PZ has frozen the comments at just over 4000 while simultaneously mentioning the anticipated (subsequently delivered and now fully broached) Shermer legal action.
Now we sit back and wait. Maybe @mykeru will start a reverse countdown clock for us to watch while we wait for an army of Brooks Brothers lawyers to swarm Morris? He’s been pretty reliable and manages to post way more content than most of the people on the BlockBot list who have to simultaneously manage to write and send all those threatening emails to Rebecca Watson (in order to maintain his special gravitas).
I never did find that microwave popcorn I went hunting for the other day here in Germany. The stuff that I did manage to locate was a variation that included a sweetener for a sugar flavored popcorn experience. I just want salt and maybe some well imagined artificial butter flavoring. Worst part is that I could have picked it up over in Holland the other day if I hadn’t forgotten after leaving my favorite “coffee shop”. I told you at the start, it isn’t all roses and daffodils.
Edited to add (I am not making this up): WordPress auto-suggested the tags “circus seal” and “Rebecca Watson”. So much win.
