He has Risen

Published March 31st, 2013 by Bobby Henderson

My friend Gooeld spotted this egg with an uncanny likeness to the FSM. 

Because it is Easter, I want to share a link to a debate on “Did Jesus Really Rise From The Dead?” between Michael Horner and Dan Barker.   Horner is Christian scholar and Barker is a reformed Christian preacher and now an atheist activist.  It is an engaging debate and I suspect no matter your beliefs you’ll find reading this time well spent.

Here’s the link:  Did Jesus Really Rise From The Dead?

    testing ….

    Well, I actually read through most of the transcript. Although there were some interesting observations the debate really didn’t seem to go anywhere. From the questions that were asked it would seem to me that the audience was filled with confirmed believers, so the filled in cards would not be an indication of who “won” the debate. That may well be a biased view on my part.

    Dan Barker: “… the early Christians were in the habit of doing this, adding things, redacting things, changing things, editing things, according to their theology.”

    LOL…It seems to have worked very much like Wikipedia does.

      It’s the same with just about any written or oral records. I understand that even now some children in American schools are still being told that in Columbus’ time people thought the Earth was flat.

      • Negav Kalanaga says:

        Some people in America still believe the Earth is flat. A few years back there were news reports of a parent in Arizona suing the public schools for “violating his religious rights” by teaching his child that it was round… He apparently won in the first case, but (I assume) lost on appeal, as textbooks still say it’s round.

        • Keith says:

          Yes, there are a couple of passages in the buybull that talk about the “corners of the earth” and about satan taking jeebus to the top of a mountain and showing him “all of the kingdoms of the world” (talk about bending light in all the right places). These types of throw away lines are sometimes used by the true believers to excuse their silly belief in a flat Earth.

      • Joey says:

        I was totally taught that! Elementary school teachers are so dumb.

    • James says:

      I was just reading an article on Flat Earth Theory on universetoday.com…

      “Those who adhere to the flat Earth theory have certain answers to criticisms of their theory. Charles Johnson, who was a president of the Flat Earth Society, said that the Moon landing was also a hoax and that it was scripted and filmed on a set in Hollywood. Gravity is seen as a mystical force – that does not exist – to many who believe in the flat Earth theory. Charles Johnson accepted Aristotle’s idea that things naturally fall downwards. Adherents to the flat Earth theory have often been criticized and parodied. Some of the web sites that use the name are simply satires.”

      This is all completely consistent with being held down by noodley appendages, and should do much to increase people’s faith. Obviously the Earth can be both round and flat, like a pancake. Shame on those websites that are simply satires and parodies!

      • Keith says:

        From a theological point of view I agree that gravity is caused by noodly appendages, just as the universe is held together by spaghetti and noodles. We poor humans, who can only study things with our human perception, have had to develop ideas like spacial warping and string theory to accommodate what we cannot fully comprehend.

        • Billy Bones says:

          Gravity is an illusion. The Earth sucks.

  4. Framptonm says:

    And string theory may just be non-believers’ way of explaining His Noodly Appendages.

    • Keith says:

      Yes, it is tied in with wave theory. If the FSM protrudes a tentacle into our humble existence and we shine a white light on it, we see a single band of light. If we get drunk and shine a white light on it we see several bands and many colours. When we pass out, the colours cease to exist (we get black).

    I don’t know what having a healthy body has to do with the idiotology of a flat Earth: looks as though the bots are getting more sofisticuffed.

    • Atsap Revol says:

      Well, at least the bot got the spelling correct: BUYBULL and JEEBUS. That’s some progress.

  7. Inge says:

    My personal theory concerning the nature of the aforementioned buybull-text is the following: Some middleeastern houswife asking “Where the hell have you been? You smell of alcohol and perfume, your clothes are rumpled!” “Huh? You know, it’s not what you think. I was with my buddy Satanas. He showed me his digs. Really…..”
    It’s the way rumours start.

    • TheFewtheProudtheMarinara says:

      Sam Kinison had a routine where he imagined Jeebus as married, and trying to explain to the wife where he was from Friday morning to Sunday, coming home looking like he was brought back from the dead.

    • Keith says:

      Sounds like a forerunner to Rene Artois (“You stupid woman! Can you not see that….).

  8. Billy Bones says:

    Obviously a miracle since I can’t imagine any other way that the image could have appeared. Ramen!
