The Fountains of Paradise by Arthur C. Clarke book review. Techno Space Religion

Views: 158

Arthur C. Clarke is a devil.

He pushed his SPACE RELIGION on all of us, calling it SCIENCE FICTION, sending missives to his fellow SPACE WIZARDS, riding helicopters over their disgusting shrines.

Proposing one-world beast mark systems unequaled in human agony; a disgusting galactic nightmare of singularity enslavement.

Tracked and traced like goyim in a jewelry shop.

And all of you VACKED UP MORONS fell for it.

Arthur C. Clarke should be exhumed, his demon shaped remains put into a trash reactor, and used to heat a chicken farm.

I couldn’t stop reading this book.

GRADE-A TECHNO SPACE RELIGION.

Forgive me, FATHER.

THE SPACE ELEVATOR

Top floor in asynchronous orbit over the equator. Made possible through the magick of ZERO-Gee manufacturing process. Trademarked.

ONLY AVAILABLE IN SPACE.

Put ON your spacesuit and get to work.

Arthur C. Clarke.

Your future awaits in the VACUUM OF SPACE.
