Think. A hoax has to be meaningful. For instance "The moon is made
of green cheese, little green men from Alpha Centauri told me".

On the other hand, "gaggagga poopoopidoo la-la-la" is not a hoax.
It's just gibberish.

Back to hoaxes. Consider Genesis. It's nonsense on par with
"the moon is made of green cheese." Is it a hoax? I should
think not. If I say "a UFO landed in my backyard last night"
is that a hoax? If a UFO did land in my backyard, it is not
a hoax. What now if no UFO landed in my backyard?

1. I knowingly made it up. It is a hoax.
2. I honestly believe it happened. It is not a hoax.

Take now the Codex Seraphinianus. Is it a hoax?
Think about it and tell us.
