all knowledge is contained in fandom

The notion that members of a given fandom tend to bring up or discuss all sorts of irrelevant topics. Originally the phrase was "all knowledge is contained in fanzines," a term for magazines made by or for fans of something. Usually used as the acronym "AKICIF." This is supposed to be a forum for fans of "The Expanse," but everyone has somehow gotten sidetracked into a conversation about religious ideologies. All knowledge is contained in fandom, I guess.
