I Admit It. Kevin Wirth Wins.

Sometimes a winner is a loser

Yes, Kevin Wirth has won.

That is, he has won in much the same way that waitress won the beer sales contest at her job. Sometimes what you win isn’t what you were expecting.

Of course all you folks read Atheist Revolution, right? Then you already know that Vjack has crowned Kevin Wirth as the Idiot of the Week! Congratulations, Kevin!

Kevin Wirth wins the internet!

Whoa! Calm down big guy!

He wins, of course, for calling “Darwinists” terrorists. He must be getting increasingly panicky that nobody is buying his claims of discrimination (or his book), so he keeps ramping up the rhetoric.

Don’t worry, Kevin. You may have only won the week at Atheist Revolution, but at Bay of Fundie, we think you’re an idiot every day!

    I sometimes wonder if the metrics for book sales should differ depending on the type of book. I’m convinced most Xian works are bought by people out of a sense of obligation and that most go unread on a shelf somewhere. As opposed to books of competing philosophy that are bought by people who actually know how to read.

    I think that’s true of many Xian books, but it depends on how they’re sold. If their church is promoting it, I think a lot of people will buy it out of obligation. I don’t know what happens with a self-published book that’s primarily promoted by a third-rate Discovery Institute wannabe. I suspect a few churches around the country will hop on board, but it would be scattered and unorganized.

    I know that whenever Scientology publishes another new book written by the long-dead LRH, it shoots to the top of the best-seller lists. I think each Scientologist is obligated to buy as many copies as he can. I think they also coordinate the dates, so it all hits the same week. Once a book gets on the best-seller list, the hope is that the added exposure brings it to the attention of others who might be duped into buying it. I don’t know what happens to all of those copies bought by the Scientologists. They might end up on the used book market and undercut new sales.
