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.

Well, point 3 is a little shaky, but 1 and 2 are so strong it must make up for the absence of a causal relationship. Right? Right?

Anyway, you must all now unplug the internet and go through your magazines and DVDs and dispose of anything that might stir the wrath of gods. 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. Unless, of course, you have slightly more rigorous expectations of evidence than the Indonesian Minister of Communication and Information…

    Porn isn't the problem here. It is sex. The only way to not offend God is a right hand tax on males capable of a spill.

  4. Even notice it's only the fat, ugly bitches who down porn?

    And here I thought all the crazies that blame porn for everything were white Americans.

    • Fuck you, you racist shit.

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

        • 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?

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

            Does it make much of a difference if I am a white person? How does that one work?
