The Archbishop's Speechwriter?

Check this out, a bafflegab generator...

Then scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will see the following disclaimer,

The essay you have just seen is completely meaningless and was randomly generated by the Postmodernism Generator. The Postmodernism Generator was written... ...using the Dada Engine, a system for generating random text from recursive grammars...

Also linked is a site describing how NYU Physics Professor Alan Sokal’s brilliantly meaningless hoax article, similarly composed, was actually accepted by a cultural criticism publication.

Very clever.

Take Care
