Do You Believe that POE'S LAW is True?

Poe's Law states the following: It is impossible for somebody to create a parody of Christian fundamentalism on the internet without at least one person thinking it is real.

From my experience this is totally correct. Look up EdwardCurrent's channel on youtube. He says stuff like "The point is everything has to be created. And the only thing that can exist without being created: Well, that happens to be God. Checkmate, Atheists!", and there are TONS of stupid christians thinking this is a totally logical argument and subscribing to him, and also lots of atheists who, having seen equally illogical arguments posed IN FAVOUR of christianity, think he is serious and angrily point out the logical fallacies. But most of the atheists on there realise that it is satire.

    I do indeed. As is the law's First Corollary.

    "No matter how outrageous the parody belief, some fundamentalist will exist who actually holds it."

    Yes.

    Case in point: I met a fundamentalist when I worked at a bookstore that said Harry Potter was demonology and a ticket straight to hell. It was so over the top but she was being completely serious.

    Ever since then, I've always had to think twice before accusing someone of doing a parody.

    Poe spotting is one of my favourite sports here!

    There are some very good Poe artists that appear from time to time, while conversely I'm sure we get many false positives too.

    Have you seen these?
