It's a reference to the (I think) undeniable fact that the entire acausal blackmail idea and in particular the utterly hilarious 'basilisk' we are not allowed to mention here lest our comments get deleted are nothing more than an extremely nerdy and overly-taken-seriously theological equivalent of Christian hell.

And why this invalidates it? Do you chose theories based in their distance of Christianity or based on arguments? I didn't assume that hilarious thing you said either, on the contrary.
