InterNet: Where Religions Come To Die

Thunderf00t is a renowned atheist videomaker on the InterNet (yes, I’m aware that I’m the only person who still interCaps that word). As his name suggests, he has a plodding but inexorable style which can nonetheless be very, very effective. His latest is a bit of a gem.

I have to agree; the InterNet is a much more congenial place for science than religion. Religion thrives on the rapid dissemination of its information load, but royally sucks at dealing with contradictory counter-information; there’s a reason why they tend to deal with heresy by death or at best exile. Science, on the other hand, thrives on error correction; it’s the only filed I know of where ultimate honors can and have been paid to people who proved themselves utterly wrong.
