There has been some talk on HardTruth lately about laws. And not just any laws, but the kind of laws that are serious, and can hold up under even the most intense scrutiny. One law in particular that gets a lot of attention both here and all across the blogosphere is Poe's Law. Which according to Urban Dictionary means:
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 love this law because it really isn't a law at all. I see Christian mock sites all the time that I'm able to figure out are mock sites, even without a smiley face. Yet even though this "law" is easily broken, it still gets to keep its status as a law.
Since I realized these laws were so easy to create, I decided that I wanted to get in on the act. It's time for me to create my own law. But not just any law, a great and just and mighty law, one that will be hallowed as wonderful and great. I'm considering writing a book after I introduce my new law, and I'm going to call it; The Origin of My New Law. Catchy huh?
Well, without any further ado, I would like to introduce a new law. It's a law that is so sure, so steadfast that I have no doubt that it will be able to stand the test of time for ages and millennia to come. Or, at least until I'm done writing this post.....maybe.
Anyway, my new law is called; The Estes Law of Atheist Refutation. The definition of ths law is as follows;
No statement can ever be made by any Christian without an atheist refuting it, even if the atheist agrees with the statement being made by the Christian.
Isn't this wonderful! I'm so excited about my new law! But my job isn't done yet, if I want my law to stand the test of time for ages and millennia to come without ever being refuted.......but wait, that is the beauty of this law; the more it is refuted, the more validity that my great and mighty and powerful law will have! Brilliant!
The more I think about it, the more sure I am that this law will one day have its name in lights right along side all the other big-time laws, you know like Gravity, Physics, all the big timers. People say all the time, if you doubt gravity, just throw something in the air, and watch it fall. Soon people will be saying, if you doubt the Estes Law of Atheist Refutation, just pose as a Christian and say anything to an atheist, and watch them refute it. It will be that steadfast and sure of a law. I'm so pumped!
Here's the HardTruth.
I really hope that no one tries to copyright my new law before I do. It would be a real shame if such a fantastic discovery were stolen from me. I just want to thank all the atheists who live their lives with the sole purpose of refuting everything that Christians say, without you, this dream would never have become reality, and that's the HardTruth.
