I just received a very threatening email from Dave Mabus. Dave is a christian who is rabidly anti atheist. As a person he is about as pleasant as a bad rash and as an intellect he makes a walnut look smart. Very few people send me truly threatening emails and get away with it for long. Remember the Turkish Spammers? I took care of them right good, didn’t I. (Details will not be forthcoming … just notice that they are not around here any more.) And I’d take care of Dave as well, except for one very important detail. He wasn’t threatening me, he was threatening my friend and colleague, PZ Myers.
Now, of course, I’ll stand up for PZ any time. But I don’t need to. He’s very capable of taking care of himself. I pity the person that threatens PZ.
As part of Dave the Dummy Mathus’s threat, and rather incongruously, he sent me this picture:
I think Dave thinks this is a funny anti-atheist cartoon. He does not understand that this is a funny parody on anti-atheism. So Dave sending this to me and a thousand other people (oh, Dave’s also a spammer) is pretty funny. Please pass the cartoon on.
It is possible that Dave himself is a parody. He is so utterly absurd that there is a distinct possibility that he is a texbook case of Poe’s law. But I don’t think so. The reason I don’t think so is because of the link between Dave and Nostradamus. This link usually means something.
In truth, I feel sorry for Dave. There is abundant evidence to inidcate that this man is in need of psychiatric help. Seriously. The problem is, having the disability he has does not place me in a position to help him. It does not make me responsible for him. All I’m going to do is keep busy defending rationality, evolution, and education. Dave’s family and friends should really step in here and get him some help.
Here is is web site in case there is any doubt about his condition.
