Spoof art

Saturday, September 18, 2004

This site has been around for a while, but it is easily the best hoax website I've come across. They've paid such attention to the tiniest detail. It took me a while to realize it was actually a spoof. This is art. Be sure to explore all the links.

Ummm...are you sure that this is a hoax site? I may not have looked hard enough for clues, but I've heard propaganda like that for years.    

Blogger Chanad says:

The reason why it is so believable is exactly because we've heard that propaganda before. But in a few instances they've gone over the top, giving it away.

For example, they talk about a "Creationist Science Fair that they held. The 1st place prize at the elementary school level is:
---
1st Place: "My Uncle Is A Man Named Steve (Not A Monkey)"
Cassidy Turnbull (grade 5) presented her uncle, Steve. She also showed photographs of monkeys and invited fairgoers to note the differences between her uncle and the monkeys. She tried to feed her uncle bananas, but he declined to eat them. Cassidy has conclusively shown that her uncle is no monkey.

At the middle school level, the 2nd place went to:
---
2nd Place: "Women Were Designed For Homemaking"
Jonathan Goode (grade 7) applied findings from many fields of science to support his conclusion that God designed women for homemaking: physics shows that women have a lower center of gravity than men, making them more suited to carrying groceries and laundry baskets; biology shows that women were designed to carry un-born babies in their wombs and to feed born babies milk, making them the natural choice for child rearing; social sciences show that the wages for women workers are lower than for normal workers, meaning that they are unable to work as well and thus earn equal pay; and exegetics shows that God created Eve as a companion for Adam, not as a co-worker.

Haha, it's absolutely ridiculous. If you go through all of the pages you will start to notice that things are just a bit over the top.

Does anyone remember the manbeef.com hoax site from a few years back? That was also great great work.

Oh, I would say the safety feature on atheists indicates this is most certainly satire ;)

Thanks Chan'ad! I got a kick out of this one :)

I'm still kind of amused by the site. The story of the guy hunting for the Apotasaurus in Africa seems a little hokie to me, which seems to indicate that it was over the top.

Although, I got my kicks out of the link to Landover Baptist, now that was a hoot!
