A new commenter, Ma Kheru, states:
Let the information flow freely. There is a wide array of resources which make even the most half-assed research expose the Necronomicon as a work of fiction.
Ma Kheru is right. By writing here that the Necronomicon is a modern fake, I am preventing people from learning that the Necronomicon is a modern fake.
That’s not to say he doesn’t make some good points – I hope to get to them soon – but the subtext of his comment is clear.
I’ve come to realize just how disturbing the fact that I’m continuing to state that the Necronomicon is a hoax really is to some people. People accuse me of wanting to censor books, or being irrational or evil, or having my own cult of followers, or failing to appreciate the beauty of the fine esoteric tradition of lying to people. The mere fact that I’m out here and writing what I believe is true is seen as threatening to some people.
I suppose that means I should keep it up, huh?
