Barring the possibility that I am psychic, for some reason I seem to have an ability to tell brilliant parodies of creationist thought to real creationist thought.

A paper posted by Wes gave me the idea that we need a parody filter. Because of both the plethora of really stupid ideas in the blogosphere and the parodic defenses deployed to counter these viruses, people are becoming seriously confused when they should be amused. Therefore, I propose the construction of a decision chart much like the one that Wes and John Wilkins created by amending Dembski’s

except the the parody filter would account for the "They Don't Knows" in the creationist/IDist background information.

First of all, we need a snappy acronym.

I have considered the obvious: PF, for parodic filter, but I don't like that unless I can add a TTT! to it. PETARD is a good candidate, but I also really like a short and sweet one, an analogue to Dembski's, such as DA.

Any other ideas?  :D

Building on their fondness for scatological instruments of grace:

C.R.A.P. - Creationist Reality or Another Parody?

F.A.R.T. - Found Another Realistic Troll?

Zounds!  Such a filter will be an important component of my Breathtaking Inanalyzer - otherwise it'll be swamped by false positives triggered by OE and UD trolls.  This is urgent.

I think this might be a little too long to fit Kristine's parameters, but I think it is applicable, and so easy "even a caveman" can remember it.  Whenever there is a DI press release, or some IDist moves his lips, you just have to answer:  Is it STOOPID?

Naturally, I adore all of your ideas but I think this one's a winner.

F.A.R.T. - Found Another Realistic Troll (or Tard) is a good one for defining one outcome of the process. (And what about defining the other result as Found Another Parody? Oh my - maybe not.)

Now to the warlock: You think you can outsmart me! I don't watch CSI, but I know how to find it in the TV Guide! *Shakes fist*

This is as far as I've gotten: No, I can't make the image work for me, either. *Shakes fist*

How about this for another outcome:

While I bow before carlsonjok's mad skills, may I suggest:

Jesting As Creationist Kookoos And Similar Sciency-ness.

Or:

Dembskian Uttering of Mind-Blowingly Asinine Sciency Statements.
