Christian fun for boys and girls

Following links from parabiodox’s – how can I put this? – unique site, I came across some really good Christian sites. Believe it or not. No, really.

(And before you say it, I’m not the fool for carrying on….. I know it’s not April 1 any more. )

I’m not talking about the normal entertainment value you can get from from reading creationist garbage and having a good chortle – albeit, tinged with fear. These really seem to be people who can extract the proverbial urine from themselves.

Ship of fools is a shock. It should probably be on the Atheist blogroll, were it not for the bulletin board that seems to be full of actual Christians. The gadgets for instance, like the dasboard Jesus, from Dogma or the knitted testament redefine tacky.

My temporary favourite is the cat baptising kit. Which seems to be being applied to the evil cat from Cats and dogs.

There is a section called the Fruitcake Zone that might as well be on the atheist blogroll because some of these links really are to the sites of people off the church bell-shaped curve of rationality. As the Ship of Fools site puts it:-

Here you will find the weird, wild and wonderful world of religious fruitcake, with websites that unwittingly put the “fun” back into fundamentalism. And the “mental”, come to think of it.

Related sites include the The religious adherence of comic book characters With an attention to detail that would shame Monk (the TV detective, that is, not a member of a religious order) someone has tabulated a million comic book characters and listed their religions.

They’ve had to strain the concept of religion beyond breaking point to include things like Alcoholics Anonymous, environmentalism, even atheism. (A fair number of the villains turn out to be atheists.)

Some characters like Thor and Hercules are even stuck with worshipping themselves more or less.

There are even linked pages debating the religion of selected characters at such length you may suspect the Bible is the condensed version of the book these would make.

You can spend hours here, being amused, infuriated and utterly baffled at the oddness of the human mind. As I said they are pretty damn good.

  1. Hasn’t everyone with a blog? The man is a one man blog seo-bot in disguise.

    He posted a couple of weeks ago actually saying that we was going to achieve some search engine triumph by using the words atheism and homosexuality in his posts and it blatantly works in some obscure way that passes human understanding.

    It amuses me in an obscure way. I can’t believe he’s not taking the piss. For a start, almost all his links are actually to atheist sites or else they are to anti-ID card, anti-CCTV etc organisations.

    For an end, the content of some of his content-containing posts tends to be so off-the-wall that I can’t really believe anyone thinks it and so I suspect he is just trying to provoke atheists to comment on him.

    So going on the ends – i.e more people accessing atheist and anti-repression blogs – not the means – i.e. the unique content of his site – I think he’s probably a winner whether he means to be or not.

    (In any case, my final excuse is that there’s already a link to him from something, from someone else on this blog, who would agree with you completely on this – as determined in a twenty minute online debate – but who somehow fell for it first.)

  2. I haven’t, I wouldn’t give that person the rating, especially when I see such wise words as “But as it is an atheist site I can’t just that it go at that can I ?”.

    I mean, really, WTF is that supposed to mean?

  3. Largely, I agree and would avoid linking to him where ever possible – however, there is an element of “fair play” which makes me feel churlish about taking that line, when he has linked to this blog.

    Also, I think if heather is going to cite something his blog says, it is only reasonable to link to it as we would with any other site cite…

    Having said that, I can see why other people choose not to link to him… 🙂

  4. parabiodox’s – how can I put this? – unique site.

    Well said – I think he’s nuts.

    I posted a link to him once, I will never ever do so again. Even if he keeps linking to me, which he does for some strange reason.
