“Satan outed me as a cock smoking fairy.”

And now I present to you an excerpt from my conversations online with religious people. This is in response to me asking her how she got caught up with the fresh life church movement here. This is word for word in case you were curious. Keep in mind this person is an adult now…

“I see, well it’s funny you ask. Long story short, I as a child chose to believe in Christ. I also slowly began to realise that my mom was completely crazy and was isolated for most of my teen years except for being allowed to attend homeschool choir and church. I’m a musician so I just participated in the youth band…but I was misunderstood there by most everyone so I looked for a different church when I was 18, and eventually went to fresh life a little while before i moved away. I’ve been to the bottum of my existance and back, I’ve looked at my faith as objectively and cynically as possible, nearly leaving it once or twice, and I have found that I can’t just take somebody’s word for how life is, or who God is. It’s a road we all have to take on our own, and if you can find a humble trustworthy person to bounce ideas off of, it helps, but you gotta be able to tell if they’re full of crap or not. I’ve been pretty convinced so far that Levi Lusko of Fresh life is not full of it, so thats really how I was sucked in, and it’s the only church that I really miss. Of course I’m pretty sure I understand what you mean about the children, I was one of them, and I admit I’ve felt brainwashed sometimes. But if you look at those old people churches you might notice how dull and empty they are. I mean who wants to be around crabby old people who sing songs from the 1800’s? not me. And I think it’s really the parents responsibility to not shove anything down thier kids throats… if they do somewhere down the road i think the kids will still realise they have a choice and probably go for the opposite. But i don’t think the church has much control over that except in what they teach. I grew up with plenty of children in church who are now punk rockers, athiests, or whatever because they decided. Well I’ve probably rambled on enough.”

So I reply…

That is troubling to me. You never had a chance, you were the child of christian parents. You think you had a chance, but you never knew any different, and you had the fear put in you at a very early age.  You don’t take somebody’s word for what life is, you figure it out on your own. Saying it’s god is just a cop out to give responsibility to some made up being. Church is all you know, and to step away from that frightens you. The choice shouldn’t be either old people churches or fresh life church, it should be church or no church. All churches boil down to the same basic principles. Just because you are evolving a religion from something dull and boring to something not dull and boring, doesn’t change the fact that it’s still a religion. Different shapes of shit are still shit deep down inside. Kids don’t have a choice when they are indoctrinated from birth by being baptized and being forced to go to church, then asking them after a good 10 to 15 years of that whether or not they believe in god. Of course they do, because they are afraid to death that if they don’t, they will burn eternally in this made up place, that preachers invented to scare you into buying into their fake religion in the first place. It’s a very vicious cycle. I would recommend reading the god delusion or letter to a christian nation if you are into expanding your mind.

“Those chickens freaked me out.”

After doing this show for as long as we’ve been doing it, I’ve started to realize a lot of things about the world I live in. Perhaps this is obvious to you all, perhaps I was just too jaded to realize it initially. First of all, people are stupid. I’m a person, and of course, every now and then I fall into that category of being stupid, as I’m sure you have also. It seems the larger the group of people, the stupider and thus more easily persuaded said group becomes. You can talk one on one to a person and try to persuade them into buying whatever bullshit you happen to be selling, and you’ll never get anywhere. Now, take that same person and put them into a crowd of say fifty people. Add a few people who are working on your side, strategically planted throughout the audience who will pretend like they have had a positive experience with your product, and all of the sudden you have 45 people who are completely under your spell. This fake pretend sales pitch could take place in the middle of the driest most barren desert in the world, and at the end of your spiel, you could have all those people convinced that the one thing they need most in their lives at that very moment is more sand. Secondly, when people are at their most vulnerable, even in a one on one setting, they will be more receptive to whatever snake oil you happen to be peddling. Especially when they feel their case is a terminal one. Everyone who partakes in selling bullshit unproven remedies to people who have lost all hope are the most reprehensible scum this planet has ever seen. What really pisses me off more than this, are the people who could have actually been helped if they would have been treated with modern science based medicine initially. In most cases, these poor lost people have nothing left by the time these parasites (homeopaths) are done with them, it’s too late for even the best science based medicine to help them. Stop trying to peddle your bullshit in my valley. This is Jamhole country now. We see through your deceit, and we’re not going to put up with it anymore. We have a voice through the jamhole, and if you are one of these people participating in any kind of quackery, we will find you, you will be called out, and you will be dealt with you accordingly. Suck it up and get a real job like the rest of us, and stop trying to make your living selling lies to people who are desperate enough to buy them. Viva La Jamholia!

“It’s a good thing you zoomed in to the quantum level.”

This world is filled with more quackery than you can shake a stick at. Especially in these oh so tough economic times you keep reading about in the paper, or hearing about on your favorite “non biased” news station. At a time when people should be doing their best to work together so we can all get through this shit, we still have instances of bullshit miracles  creeping up here and there by bullshit people who lead bullshit lives. Just like the article read, these people are losing business in their normal practice of prescribing bullshit remedies that do nothing more than stimulate our own internal placebo effect, if that… So they have to keep looking for the next big thing. The next miracle cure all for anything that ails you in the present, as well as the future. These people are no better than the criminals who would rob you at gunpoint on the street, or the criminals who would stalk your children as they innocently frolic to and fro in the school playground. It’s a new world out there today than it was when our parents and their parents were growing up. You can’t trust everything you hear and see in the newspaper and the television. You can trust us, but only because we’re honest, and have made it a point in our podcast and show notes to point out when people are being retarded fucking liars and scam artists. Just be careful, and know that the device being used and marketed as a cure all at the quantum level is nothing more than whoo-whoo bullshit. It doesn’t work, and it honestly has nothing to do with quantum physics. At all… It’s illegal, and if you are the person putting out these bad typo ridden pamphlets and business cards filled with lies, watch your back, because we’re coming for you next.
