Anyways, I was checking out Jamshed's blog and, as you'd expect, it has some truly nutty content. Take this post for example, classic creationist paranoia about a worldwide "Darwinist conspiracy" and the "intellectual mafia". This part caught my eye:
[This global Darwinist mafia] bans books opposed to evolution
Well they're not doing a very good job of it! The last time I went to a bookstore, the science section had a frustratingly large number of books on intelligent design, like Darwin's Black Box by Michael Behe and Icons of Evolution by Jonathan Wells. I know that, technically, the subject of these books is evolution, but they are pure creationist propaganda masquerading as bona fide science. The only thing that stopped me from complaining to the store manager (aside from my wife) was the fact that the bibles and korans in the neighboring aisle were sharing shelf space with books on the occult, astrology, mysticism and witchcraft. At least they got something right.
And while we're on the subject of bannings, guess who persuaded the Turkish government to block access to Richard Dawkins' website?
Strangely, Jamshed's blog has links to Creationist Idiocy, as well as to other anti-creationism blogs like Pharyngula and The Sensuous Curmudgeon. Is this purely in the spirit of fairness and debate, or is Jamshed in fact a spoof? Jamshed?
UPDATE: As you can see, he's already replied below (ALL CAPS). And he's just put up a new post on his blog, which is his funniest ever. I still can't tell if he's the real deal or not. Go read his new post, decide for yourself, and vote in the poll at the top right.
UPDATE 2: Here's how people voted:
Jamshed: Real or Spoof?
Real - 1 (Is this you, Jamshed?)
Spoof - 3
I can't tell - 6
