Bizarre Anti-Spore Website Takes Issue WIth Stance On Creationism

Illustration for article titled Bizarre Anti-Spore Website Takes Issue WIth Stance On Creationism

Sooo.. The Kotaku bullshit alarm has been flashing a code amber since we got a tip about Antispore.com, but.. well, we just don't know. The site purports to be a protest against Spore and its 'attack on Christian values' and consists of several Creature Creator movies of Penis Monsters and other Spore grotesques, alongside posts about what the author claims is the game's pro-evolutionary agenda and corrupting influence on children. Oh, and the fact that Will Wright is Evil.Our first thought was "Ha! A clever satire on religious censorship and the intelligent design debate!" quickly followed by, "hang on, it's quite deadpan for satire, isn't it?" I initially thought it might be some kind of quite funny, reverse-psychology marketing campaign.. but then I got to the bit about the Episcopalian Church being a 'perverted church' that endorses homosexuality and it seemed.. less funny. The irony is that Spore is only nominally 'about' Evolution. If anything you as a player are an Intelligent Designer. Do you see? It is teaching the controversy!

Not worth paying attention.

Doesn't matter what the subject is, if it has enough media attention, there will always be some bunch of freak-o religious zealots protesting against it.

They feed on stuff like this. They make their only purpose in life to protest over stuff like this.

Every game, every movie, every book, everything that's different than their own way of thinking (and sometimes even when it's exactly the same way of thinking), they'll go and protest.

Such a sad bunch of people. Just leave them be. They are already too self-centered, bitter and pittyful with us not giving them any attention.
