Fundamentalism, and its upholders are often the object of much drama on the internet. Part of this is due to the ever waging Creationism Vs. Evolution wars on Youtube as well as between popular wikis Conservapedia and RationalWiki. Most though, is because of the outlandish practices and beliefs of followers. The most common kind of fundamentalism you'll see on the internet is christian fundamentalism, because it's by far the loudest.
Rapture Ready is the best example of fundamentalist christianity anyone on the internet could ever hope for. The site is full of news articles about the coming rapture, and forums about how to prepare for the rapture. It's about what you'd expect from a forum full of fundamentalists.
FSTDT is the primary source of making fun of fundamentalists on the Internet. It's a rank-based quote archive of fundamentalists of all kinds. Also has subsections with quotes from racists and conspiracy theorists; needless to say, there's a lot of overlap between the three.
See Main Article: Conservapedia
Conservapedia is an insane and poorly written wiki devoted to the distortion of common knowledge by adding an almost laughable amount of conservative bias. Founded by possible satirist (we hope) Andy Schlafly in 2006 the site set out to provide "Trustworthy" content by removing the default liberal "bias" of Wikipedia and (according to Andy) every other popular site on the Internet. If you want to lose faith in humanity, this is the place to go.
A strange ministry run by old fart Harold Camping had the inane belief that the rapture will occur on May 21st 2011. His logic?
Obviously, his methods involved combining some random Biblical numbers and themes together with no particular pattern. Even scarier though, is the fact that he runs one of the largest ministries in the world, Family Stations Inc..
As you may have noticed, the world inconsiderately failed to end in 2011, and Camping has since become a recluse. He also happens to be over 90 years old and suffered a stroke since then, which may have something to do with his retirement.
"Evolution is fake, but dragons were certainly real!" If you need any more proof these people are backwards, look no further.
Fundamentalism originates from the belief that everything in a certain thing is absolute, incontrovertible fact. So, take Christianity for example - fundamentalist Christians look at the bible, think "Why don't I believe everything written in this?" and start believing everything written in it.
Still going strong despite scientific and cultural advancement...
- Fundamentalists are the butt of more jokes on the internet than Weeaboos and Basement-dwellers combined, presumably because weeaboos and basement-dwellers don't constitute a voting block..
- Christian Fundamentalists are known for their belief in creationism, and loud denial of evolution.
The PETA had nothing to do with this image.
Beheading videos are the result of dangerous fundamentalism in parts of the world
