Anti-Spore site is a big Rick Roll

I called it. While some people took it seriously, I thought it was very clearly a joke, and the curtain has finally been dropped. Anti-Spore was indeed a hoax, and the creator has let slip via that good old Internet standby -- the Rick Roll.

Our militant Spore-fighter starts out a post like this:

I think part of the problem that is going on here is that the bulk of you are ignorant as to the word of God. I don’t have these beliefs just because I want to, I have them because they are the beliefs that I was raised in. I understand that everyone didn’t have the chance to be taught these things, and learn about God as my family did so if I am going to have this kind of attention I should use it to help teach others about the words of God that helped to shape me into the woman I am today...

And then continues with this:

...But the Bible teaches us that God was not done with man. For we were His creation and He then spoke to Noah in Genesis 8:21-27 after the flood.
“21. The LORD smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never gonna give you up.
22. “Never gonna let you down.”
23.”Never gonna run around and desert you.”
24. “Never gonna make you cry.”
25. “Never gonna say goodbye.”
26. “Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.”
27.”Never truly believe anything you read on the Internet. There will always be cases of Poe’s Law.”

Definitely one of the most elaborate Rick Rolls I've ever seen, wouldn't you agree? Of course, the sadder message is that this site could have been believable, simply because there are enough militant nutters in the job to make it so.
