    What's the political correctness way to say this?
    He's made up his mind he does not believe in god and he renounced being labelled athesist
    He is a 'god neutral, satan fluid, heaven and hell questionable, organised religion distain thinker, free loading philosophy' AATHESIST

    It is silly, at best, to deny being what a person obviously is. Atheist is a word with a clear definition & it serves a useful purpose. Calling it a label & saying "I do not want/like that label" does not mean anything.
    It is running round in circles, chasing one's tail.

    He is and a good answer

    However it is his name, Theologian Dr. Harry Lee Poe, a cousin of Edgar Allan Poe, and his Law is described as follows

    It has expanded from this definetion to cover all sorts of situations and is my bestiss addition to post

    Poe's Law

    Similar to Murphy's Law, Poe's Law concerns internet debates, particularly regarding religion or politics.

    "Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won't mistake for the real thing."

    In other words, No matter how bizzare, outrageous, or just plain idiotic a parody of a Fundamentalist may seem, there will always be someone who cannot tell that it is a parody, having seen similar REAL ideas from real religious/political Fundamentalists.

    The law was named after theologian Dr. Harry Lee Poe, a cousin of Edgar Allan Poe, who promoted the concept in his book "The Gospel and Its Meaning: A Theology for Evangelism and Church Growth."

    The transition from horizontal to vertical frequently requires pandiculation.

    Faggot -

    Faggots, gravy, mashed potatoes and marrowfat processed peas

    Faggots are a traditional dish in the UK,[1][2] especially South and Mid Wales and the Midlands of England.[3][4][5] It is made from meat off-cuts and offal, especially pork.[3] A faggot is traditionally made from pig's heart, liver and fatty belly meat or bacon minced together, with herbs added for flavouring and sometimes bread crumbs.
    Faggots originated as a traditional cheap food of ordinary country people in Western England, particularly west Wiltshire and the West Midlands.[6] Their popularity spread from there, especially to South Wales in the mid-nineteenth century, when many agricultural workers left the land to work in the rapidly expanding industry and mines of that area. Faggots are also known as "ducks" in the Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Lancashire, often as "Savoury Ducks". The first use of the term in print was in the Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser of Saturday 3 June 1843, a news report of a gluttonous man who ate twenty of them.[7]
    The first use in print cited in the Oxford English Dictionary is in 1851, from Henry Mayhew, where he describes a dish identical to the modern product with chopped liver and lights in an outer wrapper of caul.
