While I’m on the topic of the Holocaust again…

Since I’ve been on the topic of the Holocaust again today in giving a victim of the Hitler Zombie a well and truly deserved taste of not-so-Respectful Insolence, before I get back to medicine and science tomorrow I can’t help but note that it’s been brought to my attention that a brand, spankin’ new Jack Chick tract has made an appearance to darken the Internet for critical thinkers and skeptics everywhere. Heck, Chick’s fundamentalist religious craziness is so toxic that rational believers (and even many not-so-rational believers) undergo a wave of neuronal apoptosis any time he appears.

This time around, God is back, and He’s pissed! He’s so pissed that he’s sending a huge hurricane against the Gulf Coast and a bunch of tornadoes elsewhere. Why? Because we’re not nice enough to Israel and are “dividing His Land.” Of course, it’s a bit inconsistent in that apparently the Holocaust occurred because the Jews rejected Jesus as the Son of God:

If you want an amazingly overwrought example of confusing correlation with causation taken to hypernova levels of stupidity, click on the preview above and read this latest Chick tract. Just be careful. Your brain might explode. I’ve become inured to Chick tracts to the point where they now cause me extreme amusement (yes, they are a guilty pleasure of mine), but not everyone is as warped (or immune) as I am.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
