Porn Causes Tsunamis and Earthquakes

untitledThe interesting PZ Myers writes on Pharyngula:

Powerful stuff, that porn. The Indonesian Minister of Communication and Information (who must be very smart to have a title like that) has determined that recent natural disasters in his country are a consequence of the ubiquity of pornographic DVDs. His logic is something like this:

1) it is a fact that one can easily buy porn in local markets, and

2) it is a fact that the Padang earthquake killed over a thousand people and that the Aceh tsunami devastated an entire region, therefore

3) it is a fact that the two are causally related.

I’ll be sorry to see you all go, but it’s better this way than that you all end up drowned or crushed or blown to Oz or something.

      • tonyviner

        How am I a racist, good sir? Just because I think white people are scum.

        • plsdie

          That, by definition, is racist. Why do you feel the need just because that this article is criticizing a country that happens to be Asian you need to insult people of European descent?

          • plsdie

            Actually never mind I really don't give a damn.

        • Buffet

          I hope you're not including me in that remark, pencilneck.

          • tonyviner
