Macs are the Devil!

I recently got a MacBook Pro. It's great. I love it. It's better than my previous Windows Vista based machine in many many ways, and it has never crashed randomly (that's not to say it hasn't crashed, but it was a specific problem that has since been patched).

I'm in the twilight hours of writing a thesis that has a whole lot about Richard Dawkins and Religion (which is due Thursday!) in it, and so I'm constantly typing different combinations of "Religion" and "Richard Dawkins" into Google. Randomly, I found this, and was so overwhelmed with a sense of "who do I send this to first?" that I panicked and posted it on my blog:

the real operating system hiding under the newest version of the Macintosh operating system (MacOS X) is called... Darwin! That's right, new Macs are based on Darwinism! While they currently don't advertise this fact to consumers, it is well known among the computer elite, who are mostly Atheists and Pagans.

Haha. That's funny, right? Good spoof guys... But wait a sec... I don't think they're taking the piss!

Furthermore, the Darwin OS is released under an "Open Source" license, which is just another name for Communism. They try to hide all of this under a facade of shiny, "lickable" buttons, but the truth has finally come out: Apple Computers promote Godless Darwinism and Communism.

Wow. I don't know how this could get any more ridiculous!

Consider the name of the company and its logo: an apple with a bite taken out of it. This is clearly a reference to the Fall, when Adam and Eve were tempted with an apple by the serpent. It is now Apple Computers offering us temptation, thereby aligning themselves with the forces of darkness.

Maybe I spoke too soon.

This company is well known for its cult-like following. It isn't much of a stretch to say that it is a cult. Consider co-founder and leader Steve Jobs' constant exhortation through advertising (i.e. mind control) that its followers should "think different". We have to ask ourselves: "think different than whom or what?" The disturbing answer is that they want us to think different than our Christian upbringing, to reject all the values that we have been taught and to heed not the message of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Religious folk accusing a company of mind-control? Didn't anybody tell these chaps about throwing rocks whilst in glass houses?

Holy Crap! Referring to the recent (obnoxious as all hell) Mac ads promoting switching from PC to Mac, they think that Apple are attempting to convert people away from their religion, as they are:

luring the average, unsuspecting person with the false promise of "compatibility" (both with normal computers and Christianity) only to later foist acceptance of Evolutionism and anti-Christian values on them via the techniques discussed above.

I'm aware that publishing the link when I'm going to quote the hell out of the page almost defies the point, but look at this for an example of the fucking nitwittery exhibited by this religious mind, which is not only factually wrong, but deliriously deluded!

One additional technique that I have noticed while perusing their new literature is the common cult tactic of indoctrination through a special insider language. This technique linguistically isolates new recruits from the outside world, forcing them to become more dependent on their cult handlers. For instance, an industry standard connection for peripherals is idiosyncratically retermed "FireWire" (or should we just be honest and call it "HellFireWire"?) while the familiar Recycle Bin is given its new cult name of "Trash Can". Any "Switcher" trying to purchase equipment for their new computer or get assistance will be forced by this linguistic ghettoization into dealing with the only people that can understand the strange argot: brainwashed Macintosh users. It is then that the process of unbuilding the "Mac Newbie" and reshaping him or her into an Evolutionist begins.

UPDATE: Mere moments after posting this, Fin brought this graphic to my attention, which links to to another website from theirs:
