Internet Dumb Fuck Discovers, Via Google, 'Occham’s Razor' and 'Just-So Stories.'
A Close Shave: The 14th century Franciscan monk, William of Ockham, has narrowly failed to avert having his name and idea co-opted by a fucklord.
TALKRATIONAL.ORG (Internet News Service) — A douchebag with access to a computer has accidentally discovered, via random Google surfing, the terms “Occham’s Razor” and “just-so stories,” and can’t get enough of using them even though he doesn’t know what they mean, it was revealed Friday.
“That’s a just-so Story,” the douchewit, Socrates, declared in a post at Talk Rational.org.
He went on to demand: “What about Occham’s Razor?”
The fuckwit emphasized “What about Occham’s Razor?” by tagging it in bold type.
“The bottom line is that the idea of empty niches is just a just-so story,” Socrates added, with respect to the theory of evolution. “And not worth arguing about.”
“Of course,” the pontificating and ill-educated jackass asseverated, “all of this is a showstopper problem for evolution theory.”
The rubes who make up about 85 percent of the American public were impressed.
“Ebbolution be just a just-so story,” Bobby Layne Breathard, 39, of Buttfuck, Ark., drawled at his local school board while chewing chaw, during a debate about whether to replace biology texts with the Bible in science class. “Whaddabout that there Occham’s Razor and some nice Occam’s aftershave and cologne?”
The school board voted unanimously to require that biology classes teach “The Total Theory” instead of the theory of evolution.
