Testing Harry Potter

2002-02-14 14:43:00+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

We'll be away this weekend, and Alec will be watching the house and feeding the cats. I told him that if he left the pentagrams on the hardwood floors, that was one thing, but if any demons from his summonings were running around the house... there would be hell to pay. Along those lines, via the Daily Illuminator, in response to all of those people who claim that Harry Potter teaches witchcraft, The Escapist has set about testing the spells from Harry Potter. Good to see the scientific method debunking fundamentalism once again.

It will be even more fun watching the fundies shit a brick when they get wind of this. God (referred to as the Authority, heh) a liar, Christian groups killing children with Mengele-level experiments, Satan (or at least his minions) cast as very much the good guys, lying treated as a valuable skill for children, Eve recast a liberator of humanity, total and violent rebellion by children against parents praised, and bible passages rewritten, all in books marketed to children.

And they're damn good books, too!
