SaprolingToken: Came in hoping for Christopher Moore's "Lamb"Leaving disappointed
MrBallou: "described as a coming-of-age story exploring Jesus' early life and formative years as he comes to learn he is the Son of God and is destined for greatness."It's already been done.
browneye: So in other words, they're going to make shait up about Jesus.
Capo Del Bandito: It's "Jesus'" you ignorant Sub-tard.It's not a grammar nazi thing, it's a 'god dammit stop being the ignorant equivalent of ebonics'. God damn idiocy is rampent.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: browneye: So in other words, they're going to make shait up about Jesus.You mean, as opposed to the sh*t they've made up for the past 2000 years?
deschinc: MaudlinMutantMollusk: browneye: So in other words, they're going to make shait up about Jesus.You mean, as opposed to the sh*t they've made up for the past 2000 years?Yes, but that shiat is canon. I think to make it really work the original script has to be successively translated through at least four different languages before hitting the stage.
markfara: Will they deal with the time he got his first boner?
Son of Thunder: "Rampent".[snert]
ThatGuyFromTheInternet: The Bible has an EU?
Son of Thunder: MaudlinMutantMollusk: browneye: So in other words, they're going to make shait up about Jesus.You mean, as opposed to the sh*t they've made up for the past 2000 years?My goodness you're so hip and edgy. I hope I'm as cool as you someday.
Capo Del Bandito: I don't think the European Union was formed back when the Roman Empire was still around, though I could be wrong.
Lipspinach: /Fark has become 50% lame call & response bullshiat.
markfara: The EU is the reformation of the Roman Empire, which heralds the imminent return of Christ.Well, it was back in '74.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: His whole life changed when that one time at college, he dropped acid and saw his dad
12349876: browneye: So in other words, they're going to make shait up about Jesus.That's all you can do about this section of his life./because he was an unknown until adulthood//my guide to fact vs. shiat in the bible is...///is it original or did another religious tradition do it first?
Bslim: And don't forget that passionate summer spent with a young Frenchman named Alain...
Great_Milenko: This is even more risky for them than Cosmos. If their Jesus character, and if it the stories are from a time period where little to nothing has been written about him he is indeed a character, if this character does anything other than wish fulfillment for evangelicals, the outrage will be, well, biblical in scale. Jesus' lost years will have to consist of him flattering wealthy businessmen, chastising beggars, and dispatching youths in hooded robes who approach him on the street.
Cerebral Knievel: if you count some of the Gnostic texts.. they handled Jesus's childhood. and he apperntly was a notorious prick and a bully.
timswar: SaprolingToken: Came in hoping for Christopher Moore's "Lamb"Leaving disappointedWell I came here to suggest they get Moore on board as a writer, I'm not disappointed that someone beat me to it :-)
BizarreMan: Love me some Christopher Moore, but his recent books have well, kind of sucked.The problem with making a show with that subject matter is unless you handle it very reverently, the Christian brigade will be so up in arms that the show won't last past the first commercial break. Sure we can all read Lamb and say it rocked. (It did.) But compare how many people read that book to how many people will watch and become outraged.
stewbert: I haven't read Moore's works in order, so I don't know when they were all written, but I've loved every one of his books that I've read
Trocadero: Anyone having trouble w/ Noscript and posting images? Did Fark change their XSS tags or something? Or did Noscript tighten it up?
BizarreMan: stewbert: I haven't read Moore's works in order, so I don't know when they were all written, but I've loved every one of his books that I've readThe two I didn't like were Fool and Sacre Bleu. I slogged through Fool hoping it would get better. It didn't. As far as Sacre Bleu I must confess that I didn't get past the preview chapter on my Kindle.
