Journal Of Applied Misanthropology

A well crafted essay on religious belief, which no one will read and have their opinion's changed by.

But I'm sure it was a nice outlet for the author.

One of the primary occupations of those with minority opinions is the endless creation of arguments and speeches which hold no convincing power, except to those who already accept their premises. It's satisfying, but useless, to write smug enraged thesis that anyone would ever dare enter Intelligent Design into school syllabi. Satisfying, because Intelligent Design is nonsensical crap, even to many discerning christians, and useless, because like so many arguments, it does not actually engage proponents of Intelligent Design on the level which inspired their opinions.
