Why Reward Con Men?

Many charlatans over the course of history have become wealthy and prominent through exploitation of the ignorance and lack of education rampant in the general population. Creation “science” proponents like Carl Baugh and Kent Hovind are the worst kinds of charlatans because they actually know better. They are intelligent enough to know that the stuff they’ve concocted is pure horse shit, but since so many ignorant, uneducated paeans will swallow it, they unashamedly claim any fantastic lie they can dream up is true, and continue to cash in. Just like snake oil salesmen of old. The great unwashed hordes never learn that there is a sucker born every minute, and one to take him.

Sweet, dude. I just blogged to this effect.

Never mind the Yahoo 360 blog, that's not my primary. Most of my posts are on Ungodly Cynic and Atheist Haven.

Charlatans is a very good word to define these kinds of people It's very sad when I have friends and relatives who are dumb enough to buy in to religion. Ach!!!
