/ 3 Experiments You Can Do At Home that PROVE THE EARTH IS FLAT!
i mean i respect all religons and people can belive what they want to but seriously this is a joke right?
landover are a pisstake.
that said some confused people may have ended up on their forum taking them seriously.
Yep, I think it is a joke!
Must throw away my copy of A Brief History of Time which is obviously the work of the devil!
"On the lookout for wife #6"
From just a quick look I would assume the objectiveministries site is also a windup, as well as an offence against basic web site design!
Do any Christians run satirical atheist sites?
Can they name one experiment that proves time exists?

I can, sleep in one more time this month and I'm for the chop.

isnt christianity itself a satire of the tale of gilgamesh?
I must be very out of touch as I haver seen the Gilgamesh web site? Did read a translation, but on paper ;-)
Similar accusations about Mithras, but I don't think the Persian Bull god took it to court?
Landoverbaptist is a well-and-long established parody site.
The letters section is well worth a read. Basically divides into two sections:
1) Those who haven't got the joke and are saying what a wonderful site it is, and how strong no-nonsense belief is what is holding the world together, and how the great people at Landoverbaptist will be the first rescued when the rapture comes, etc, etc.
2) Others of the same disposition but who have realised its a joke and making lots of comments about hellfire, damnation, etc...
I also like the way it links to "real" baptist sites and the level of insanity doesn't noticably change...
Has the parody created a self creating reality? So people mistake other peoples parody for a genuine reaction and so parody the parody they thought was genuine.
The whole "Hell House" concept seems a little farfetched and counterproductive. The typical western idea of hell run by a devil is contrary to most interpretations of the Bible, ie the devil is sent to hell after the final judgement, the dead to hades until judgement etc. I suspect the popular culture concept of hell has more to do with pagan / pre-Christian culture surviving into ‘folk religion’.
The offence against basic website design is part of the charm, when I first saw it I needed much more than a quick look to make my mind up whether its a spoof or not. In the end it was the Pastors' profile pictures that convinced me, just too perfect. :O)
Afaik the swag is real, I'm quite tempted to buy myself a "Mr Gruff the grumpy atheist" t-shirt.
Poe's Law, that's the badger - parody of this kind of thing is basically impossible to distinguish from the real deal. The objectiveministries site is a windup, but the Chuck Norris video at the top of their front page, warning that Barack Obama's re-election would be the "first step into a thousand years of darkness" for America, is absolutely sincere.
Triclavianists hold that three, and only three, nails were used to affix our Lord Jesus Christ to the cross. While it might be true that three nails were used -- and, in fact, archeological evidences uncovered by Biblical researchers positively point to this conclusion -- it is erroneous, and theologically dangerous, to make this a doctrinal position. The Bible does not enumerate the Lord's nails and any extra-Biblical research on the subject -- while both interesting and useful for apologetic purposes when dealing with those afflicted with a Secular world view that denies even the historicity of our Lord's passion and crucifixion -- cannot be considered of any substantive import to the Faith.
Which I read as a rather clever, long-winded way of saying "we don't let facts get in the way of our beliefs".
What about if you jump up when there is a joke travelling past? What speed does it go over your head?

Thanks for clearing that up, I was confused.
If I have faith that I will not fall off my onsight solo of Indian Face it is equally useless.
Vodafone don't seem to think it's funny. Apparently that link is too offensive for me to view on my phone.
