Googlism


#1

So, I found out about this religion online. What’s the deal? They seem to make some strong points, but I’m not sure if they are actually serious or if they are a parody.

That is ridiculous.


#3

They don't seem as devout as the Landover Baptists. ;)


#4

This reminds me of certain fanbases making religions based on their fanbases.
Also, Poe’s Law.

Most importantly:

They’re just making an idiotic point, much like the Pastafarians.

In the case of the Cullenists, they are almost gone.

Stuff like this always starts out as though they are criticizing all religion, but then they fairly quickly ditch that facade and focus their energies on criticizng Christianity.

Just a bunch of atheists pretending to be witty. :rolleyes:

When you say they make some good points, I sincerely hope you were joking. :)

Their Forum seems to be going strong. Landover Baptist must be one of the longest-lived 'religious' (A-hem) sites in the Net.

Yes, there were those who worshiped characters from the Twilight series. Seeing as the fad died out, they are virtually gone.
Then again, I've seen people worship Korean pop idols as of late.
