Kyle started out hating Christians. He listened to anti-Christian music, played violent video games, and created a website attacking various Christian organizations while praising the work of . Kyle was a troubled boy. However, this all changed when he found Jesus. Since then he has gotten himself cleaned up, has started listening to Christian rock, and is now a respectable looking young lad. His parents - being Jewish - were hesitant to accept his new found faith, but they do consider it better that Kyle is now following Jesus instead of Marilyn Manson. Kyle has recently graduated from Fellowship Christian High School and is now attending Fellowship University. When not studying, he helps maintain our web site.

How convenient all his former issues revolved around violent video games, Marilyn Manson and an Atheist.

I'm almost certain it's a parody.

I mean, real Christian psychos don't even tolerate Christian rock, because it's too secular.

Ok, here's my proposal. We give the Christian fundies their own country. Give them Texas, and let them do whatever they want with it. It'll save the rest of us sane people from having to see them attempt to force their warped beliefs on the rest of us.
 
2011-06-26 08:12:08 PM
This seems like an obvious troll. I wouldn't get too upset about it if I were you.
He gives it away with the "In Sync" line, and the Buddy Christ in the sidebar.
Even a grade-schooler could see past such obvious trolling.
Greenlighting this link was just giving them the attention they're after.
Any second now, they'll post another article saying how Fark is evil.
Mark my words. You're getting trolled hard.
Eventually I hope people stop falling for crap like this.

We'd probably have to do the same with Utah, I don't think the christians and mormons would agree to being in the same place. Well, the christians might convert once they find out they can have multiple wives, including their 13 year old nieces.

Still, the Anti-Triclavianist link in the sidebar suggests to me, as others have pointed out, that it's still under the same parody umbrella.

One of my favorite bits from that part of the site:

If you find an Atheist in your neighborhood,
TELL A PARENT OR PASTOR RIGHT AWAY!

You may be moved to try and witness to
these poor lost souls yourself, however
AVOID TALKING TO THEM!

Atheists are often very grumpy and bitter and will lash out at children or they may even try to trick you into neglecting God's Word.

Very advanced witnessing techniques are needed for these grouches. Let the adults handle them.

Nobody is claiming that the United States did *everything* and nobody else helped. I'm certainly not saying that. But I am saying people in other countries are really quick to forget just how much the United States has given them.

As for the World-Wide-Web argument; sure, the original proposals for how it should come together took place at CERN back in the 90s. As they described the 'World-Wide-Web' was text only. It wasn't until an American came along made things awesome with the Mosaic browser that went on to become Netscape.

And not just the U.S., but DARPA in particular. Years ago I heard Rush Limbaugh claim that nothing worthwhile had EVER come out of government involvement. Someone called in to say "What about the Internet?" to which he replied that the Internet had been invented by entrepreneurs and risk-takers.

Not that it's surprising that Rush was on the airwaves being ignorant, it's just the most directly and obviously wrong I've ever heard him be.

This is like when I was a kid and we were moving to a new house. Mom did most of the packing, us kids mostly just got in the way. Dad really busted his ass though, doing all the heavy lifting, loading the truck, driving the truck, unloading the truck. I mean, it was actually pretty impressive; even now as a grown man I couldn't lift half of what my Dad could back then.

At the end of the day, anyone who isn't retarded would be able to see that my Dad had done several times as much work as my Mom and that us kids didn't actually contribute in any meaningful way. But yeah - it wasn't until *I* plugged in the TV that it was 'done'. So really, my contribution was just as important! And we all worked together! It doesn't matter who did what, because each of us has something we could point to and say we did.

Funny - I thought Bell Labs were credited with the creation of the T1
http://whatist1.com/why-t1-was-invented.html

Bell Labs designed "carrier systems" - technology that would aggregate (merge together) multiple voice channels on one trunk line without degrading quality of signal. Being logical they labeled their first carrier system "A" and by 1917 the first cable that ran four channels over an open wire pair was in use.

Fast forward to 1957 by which point Bell Labs had gone through so many "carrier systems" they were up to the letter "T" in the alphabet. (The previous carrier system was in fact "N" but they skipped the letters O, P, Q, R and S to jump straight to "T" because, as we shall see, it was also the first letter of a new digital signal technology based on "Time Division".)

Kyle was a troubled boy. However, this all changed when he found Jesus. Since then he has gotten himself cleaned up, has started listening to Christian rock, and is now a respectable looking young lad. His parents - being Jewish - were hesitant to accept his new found faith, but they do consider it better that Kyle is now following Jesus instead of Marilyn Manson. Kyle has recently graduated from Fellowship Christian High School and is now attending Fellowship University. When not studying, he helps maintain our web site.

How convenient all his former issues revolved around violent video games, Marilyn Manson and an Atheist.

From the FAQ section in that abomination of a website:

"Wasn't the Internet invented by Tim Berners-Lee, a British man, not by Americans?

The Internet: An American invention built on Faith.
This is a common myth born out of misunderstanding of what the Internet is (as well as Secularist European propaganda).

Tim Berners-Lee did not invent the Internet. He invented (or rather, claimed to invent) the "World Wide Web", an application that runs on top of the Internet, much as e-mail and Gopher do. However, Berners-Lee only created a very limited, ad hoc imitation (a crude sketch, really) of the more elaborate vision of an American, Ted Nelson, who coined the term "hypertext" as part of Project Xanadu, which was founded in 1960, when Berners-Lee was only 5 years old and 30 years before the WWW.

But Nelson -- being a professed Atheist and therefore unguided by a sense morality -- stole his ideas from another American, Vannevar Bush, who in a 1945 Atlantic article titled "As We May Think" posited a "memory extender" (or "memex"), a device that would allow access to a vast library of information with the ability to add notes and follow trails of links. In other words, what the Web became after American companies like America Online, Netscape, and Microsoft expanded on Berners-Lee's primitive protocol. (The choice of Berners-Lee's over-simplified Web protocol over the more advanced, true hypertext of Nelson had more to do with European academic political machinations from CERN than with either originality or worth.)

As the true founder of the Web, Bush cautioned against the sort of "information wants to be free" egotism that is now common on the Internet, thanks to anti-Christians such as Landover's Chris Harper. Instead, Bush saw Faith as central to his vision of the Internet:

"The course of history is determined by the faith that men are guided by. If they misread the lessons of expanding knowledge and in their brazen egotism believe that all things are known or knowable, then they will see nothing but an endlessly repeating pattern of sordid strife, the ascendancy of ruthlessness and cunning, man damned to exist a little time on an earth where there is nothing higher than to seize and kill and dominate. If they see beyond this they will see by faith, and not by reading instruments or combining numbers. They may look beyond by religious faith, or they may look merely because they feel validity in the heart's desire and conviction that good will is not a delusion. If they have faith they will build, and they will grow strong that their buildings may endure."
The Internet itself, which the Web operates on top of, arose out of research done under the auspices of ARPA (now known as DARPA, a US military research funding program) during the 1950-80s in the United States of America by loyal Americans fighting the Cold War (our own Jack Holgroth played an important role in introducing research from the field of Game Theory to packet-switching network protocols). The Internet was originally called ARPANET and the first four nodes in 1969 were at UCLA, Stanford, the University of Utah, and UC Santa Barbara -- all locations in the United States. Eventually foreign sites were allowed to connect, arguably a lapse in judgement.

So, as can be seen, the Internet is a thoroughly American invention (even taking into consideration the common confusion between the Web and the Internet) with its foundations in Faith. Without the initiative of patriotic Christian Americans, the Internet (and the Web) would not exist today. The world owes us its thanks.

You're welcome."


Wow. Just ... wow.

May 10, 2007
Poe's Law and the Search for Kerygmatic Efficacy

Firstly, I must apologize for not updating this journal in quite a while. I have been engrossed in both my ministerial duties and working on my book, From Deluge to Dort: How Infralapsarianism Doomed the Dinosaur, and haven't found the time to keep up with the fast-paced, always-something-new demands of the Internet. However, my wife, Peggy, who is quite the Internet aficionado, has been prodding me to get more into this whole "World Wide Web logging" thing -- she says that "web logs" will one day replace more traditional forms of publishing, including theological journals! -- so I have put aside some time today to briefly address an issue of great concern among academic theologians that needs to be shared with those out in the field working to spread the gospel: evangelistic inefficiency.

In his 1996 book The Gospel and Its Meaning: A Theology for Evangelism and Church Growth, Dr. Harry Lee Poe, the Charles Colson Professor of Faith and Culture at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, sought an integrative evangelism that is concinnate with temporal/cultural setting while avoiding the syncretism of a relativistic or pluralistic eisegesis that would undermine the gospel.

To frame the need for a new evangelistic approach, Dr. Poe explained in his preface the problem he saw in the Church in the last century -- one which is still prevalent today:

Christians have a tendency to proclaim the gospel from the perspective of their own spiritual issues rather than to the perspective of their audience. Furthermore, Christians tend to speak of the gospel in terms of the aspect of the gospel that means the most to them, rather than in terms of the aspect of the gospel that might offer the most good news to another person. This habit creates the oft observed situation in which the church answers questions people are not asking.
What Dr. Poe recognized as the solution to this problem has become informally known in theological circles as Poe's Law, which states that: elements of the gospel speak to different levels of spiritual concern in different cultures at different times. For example, at certain times and in certain places, the Passion of the Christ speaks most meaningfully to people; whereas, at other times and places, it is the Resurrection that most effectively addresses people's spiritual needs. Knowing which aspect best speaks to the times and locality can mean the difference between mere metamelomai and true metanoic rebirth.

Thus, Poe's Law informs us that we must be mindful of the sociocultural context in which the good news is delivered. Through this mindfulness, a properly balanced gospel emphasis can be created -- or, to use the jargon, the most soteric kerygma modality can be employed -- so as to maximize spiritual resonance within the souls of the audience. As always, the Lord has foreseen this need and has given us a gospel rich with kerygmatic potential: there's a part of the gospel that will open the heart of anyone, and it's the bailiwick of the modern pastor or missiological technician to find it.

In the guidance that I have given to OBJECTIVE: Ministries and the various outreach organizations that operate under the Fellowship aegis, I have always kept Poe's Law in mind. We must listen to the concerns of the unsaved so that we may find in them the key to winning them over to Christ through effective use of the gospel. In particular, Mrs. Tullar's Mall Mission and Pastor Hoskins' Youth Rock Ministry have both benefited from Dr. Poe's crucial insight and have found many ways to incorporate a gospel targeted to their varied audiences.

In our increasingly fragmented and globalized twenty-first century society, it is vital we develop evangelical forms that can be adapted to varied spiritual needs while not undermining the soteriological foundation of the gospel. I would urge missionaries of all levels to study Dr. Poe's work in this field and remember to remember your audience.

Indeed. I see your wager and raise:

It is for this reason that we implore visitors to our site to not forsake the Baby Jesus. For without His Cooing Grace to Humanize the Awesome Infinitude of God's Love, those on the verge of accepting Jesus into their hearts may become confused and disoriented -- experiencing a sort of Agapic vertigo -- and fall prey to the many Internet predators working for Satan who seek to lead them astray. Many a potential Saved person has been lost for lack of proper focus on the Baby Jesus.

Best line in TFA. Haven't they heard the saying "pray in one hand, shiat in the other, see which one fills up first." I used to do a lot of indoor rock climbing and saw one guy trying to pray his friend up the wall. The guy was halfway up, stuck, and his friend is sitting there praying for him to be able to what, grow a bunch of muscles and climbing skill right then and there? What a bunch of tards.

Yeah, but you have to give people a little slack. As Poe's Law states, without context it's almost impossible to tell the difference between a parody of religious fundamentalism and real religious fundamentalism.

Landover is funny, but not half as funny as the sort of brain shriveling crap that came out of the the mouths of people like Falwell and Robertson on a daily basis.

And a Creationist like Ray Comfort is really the most amazingly meta parody of himself. Really, watch Ray in action and try to wrap your brain around the fact that he's totally serious.

Kyle started out hating Christians. He listened to anti-Christian music, played violent video games, and created a website attacking various Christian organizations while praising the work of . Kyle was a troubled boy. However, this all changed when he found Jesus. Since then he has gotten himself cleaned up, has started listening to Christian rock, and is now a respectable looking young lad. His parents - being Jewish - were hesitant to accept his new found faith, but they do consider it better that Kyle is now following Jesus instead of Marilyn Manson. Kyle has recently graduated from Fellowship Christian High School and is now attending Fellowship University. When not studying, he helps maintain our web site.

How convenient all his former issues revolved around violent video games, Marilyn Manson and an Atheist.

Poe's Law is for people who succumb to knee-jerk reactions. Parody is often easily spotted and it's only the lazy who cry Poe's Law when they are fooled.

There's always someone who actually believes something crazy, that's not an excuse for not being able to identify obvious parody.

2011-06-27 12:43:58 AM

Absolutely love this part:

What Dr. Poe recognized as the solution to this problem has become informally known in theological circles as Poe's Law, which states that: elements of the gospel speak to different levels of spiritual concern in different cultures at different times. For example, at certain times and in certain places, the Passion of the Christ speaks most meaningfully to people; whereas, at other times and places, it is the Resurrection that most effectively addresses people's spiritual needs. Knowing which aspect best speaks to the times and locality can mean the difference between mere metamelomai and true metanoic rebirth.

Thus, Poe's Law informs us that we must be mindful of the sociocultural context in which the good news is delivered. Through this mindfulness, a properly balanced gospel emphasis can be created -- or, to use the jargon, the most soteric kerygma modality can be employed -- so as to maximize spiritual resonance within the souls of the audience. As always, the Lord has foreseen this need and has given us a gospel rich with kerygmatic potential: there's a part of the gospel that will open the heart of anyone, and it's the bailiwick of the modern pastor or missiological technician to find it.

As someome has pointed out, actually several people, the real, hardcore godbothered are indistinguishable from the parody. They spout a lot the the same nonsense just as loudly. I should know I married into a whole extended family of the terminally godbothered. {'The Church' seemed mystical to me as I was raised devoid of religon}

And for about a decade I was infected, but then I grew up and started to think critically and saw the inconsistencies and realized that they were not only sincere in their beliefs they were totally blind to any view that did not conform with their churches dogma. Everything outside the church, in the secular world, is there for the sole purpose of destroying your faith and your body, To "take you away" from god and his narrow bit of teachings.

Thank God (Parody) I got better! I am now a happy non-theist again. I find them sad and pity-able now, knowing they will never grow up out of their 'Fairy Tale" mindset.

You married into mentally disturbed people then, I have quite a few who are hardcore(one even playing christian music in every room[which is wired for sound] in her house) and none of them have ever tried this shiat with me who just smile and say "thats what you choose to believe"

The ones who are hardcore I fully believe are in need of psychiatric care and are not nearly as prevalent as you imply. I love how voting against abortion means you are somehow a fundie since I have a few atheist friends who believe abortion is wrong in cases that dont involve rape or incest.

Most of you citing how these people are so closed minded should really open your minds to different opinions instead of just believing that yours are 100% right all the time.

No single country had even a fraction of the impact on the current face of the internet as the United States.

Yes, other countries were involved.

Umm, the Canadiens would like a word with you son. After the Frenchies are done with you.

ATM ..the concept of circuit overhead is completely French,

T1's, OC's DS3 ATM would never have ever happened without the french concept of allowing circuit overhead and keepalives.

Funny - I thought Bell Labs were credited with the creation of the T1
http://whatist1.com/why-t1-was-invented.html

Bell Labs designed "carrier systems" - technology that would aggregate (merge together) multiple voice channels on one trunk line without degrading quality of signal. Being logical they labeled their first carrier system "A" and by 1917 the first cable that ran four channels over an open wire pair was in use.

Fast forward to 1957 by which point Bell Labs had gone through so many "carrier systems" they were up to the letter "T" in the alphabet. (The previous carrier system was in fact "N" but they skipped the letters O, P, Q, R and S to jump straight to "T" because, as we shall see, it was also the first letter of a new digital signal technology based on "Time Division".)


The concept and implementation of the reservation of a portion of the circuit for circuit overhead and control signaling is entirely French. Without which, none of the aforementioned circuit types would be possible.

RminusQ: I mean, real Christian psychos don't even tolerate Christian rock, because it's too secular a 4/4 beat with a backbeat is based in voodoo music.


FTFY with an explanation for why Christian rock is evil that I really got from a book on the subject when my crazy mother took me to a big Southern Baptist event.

Also evil:

1. Making any decision without praying to Jesus about it extensively, preferably with fasting.
2. Meditation - attempting to achieve "no-thought" means not thinking about Jesus.
3. Martial arts - Performing kata invokes a meditative state of mind. Also, chi is evil and martial arts can't be performed without it.
4. Not tithing.
5. Reading any Bible except for the King James version. 17th century English was good enough for Jesus, it should be good enough for you.

The book had many, many illustrations based around the theme of Satan building strongholds in your soul via doorways you leave in it through secular activities.

GOLD! (new window)

1st Place: "Life Doesn't Come From Non-Life"

Patricia Lewis (grade 8) did an experiment to see if life can evolve from non-life. Patricia placed all the non-living ingredients of life - carbon (a charcoal briquet), purified water, and assorted minerals (a multi-vitamin) - into a sealed glass jar. The jar was left undisturbed, being exposed only to sunlight, for three weeks. (Patricia also prayed to God not to do anything miraculous during the course of the experiment, so as not to disqualify the findings.) No life evolved. This shows that life cannot come from non-life through natural processes.

2nd Place: "Women Were Designed For Homemaking"


Jonathan Goode (grade 7) applied findings from many fields of science to support his conclusion that God designed women for homemaking: physics shows that women have a lower center of gravity than men, making them more suited to carrying groceries and laundry baskets; biology shows that women were designed to carry un-born babies in their wombs and to feed born babies milk, making them the natural choice for child rearing; social sciences show that the wages for women workers are lower than for normal workers, meaning that they are unable to work as well and thus earn equal pay; and exegetics shows that God created Eve as a companion for Adam, not as a co-worker.

Honorable Mention:


"Mousetrap Reduced To Pile Of Functionless Parts" - Kevin Parker (grade 7)
"Dinosaur & Man Walked Together" - Donny Findlay (grade 6)
"Rocks Can't Evolve, Where Did They Come From Mr. Darwin?" - Anna Reed (grade 6)

Landover Baptist is run by an organization that calls itself - no doubt in gleeful mockery of Our Lord - Americhrist Ltd. Its leader is a shadowy figure named Chris Harper who apparently has a history of anti-Christian bigotry. Although Landover Baptist claims to own vast properties and have thousands of members, in reality it exists only on the Internet and it's membership is quite small.

Their modus operandi is simple: post articles that take good Christian values and twist them - beyond recognition - such that they look arrogant, hateful, or just idiotic. To this they add a continuous mockery of The Lord and Salvation, such as portraying Jesus Christ as the captain of a decadent cruise ship or offering a free cellphone as a reward for those who become saved - demeaning the value of Salvation to that of some material trinket!


....in other words like most farkers.

turbidum: I'd forgotten all about this site. The 4Kidz section is funny as hell. Pretty damn good example of Poe's Law in play.

"Hey, Habu...[a Hindu elephant]
How many gods do you have?

I don't know. . . I lost count!

Wouldn't you rather have just one God who loves you a bunch than a bunch of gods that don't love you at all?"

Yes, and what about this gem:

Spiritual Safety Tip

What should you do if you find an Atheist?

If you find an Atheist in your neighborhood,
TELL A PARENT OR PASTOR RIGHT AWAY!

You may be moved to try and witness to
these poor lost souls yourself, however
AVOID TALKING TO THEM!

Atheists are often very grumpy and bitter and will lash out at children or they may even try to trick you into neglecting God's Word.

Very advanced witnessing techniques are needed for these grouches. Let the adults handle them.

Oh, and a side note: It's read right to left, top to bottom.

Ok, I just got done reading this whole site. I was VERY bothered by it. But, upon further introspection, I have come to the conclusion that it might not be as sincere as it leads itself on to be. Just a hunch as of right now, of course.
