Check this - Me with Russian playwright Anton Chekov!
Their letters will be in blue while mine
are in black and white.
I admit it. I'm an illiterate tool who knows nothing about Anton
Chekov, or any Russian playwrights for that matter. I only kinda
recognized the name, and when Skater Bob and I saw "him" at Union
Square I tried to act like a big shot pretending I was familiar
with him. How was I supposed to know that he died a hundred years
ago? And besides, I was just tryin' to get him to pose with my
magnets because I thought it'd be a neat thing to do. I didn't
even buy a book for Chrise-sake, well, Bob did, but whatever. He
said it wasn't a very good, and that'd make sense since it was all
a big hoax. And for the record I didn't give him a set of magnets,
he was a fucking charming bastard with a strong presence, especially
for a dupe. If I'da known what they were up to I'd've easily given
them a free set. The fact that they got him up and speaking at Barnes
& Noble; priceless. [Read
all about it here] That's the true victory. Not fooling some
Christ-hating web master and his sidekick at Union Square. You see,
I'd just met John Waters like a week earlier and I figured I was
on some kind of roll or something! "sigh" They should be ashamed,
with the real John Waters, I swear!
Skater Bob and I, were sitting there at Union Square and they had
this table set up with posters and a line of people and everything!
I saw a sign that said "Meet Anton Chekov author of The Cherry Orchard"
or something to that extent, and kinda sarcastically I pointed to
it and said to Bob, "Hey, that's Anton chekov" like I was well read
in Russian plays, and Bob said, "Go get your picture taken with
went and got in line, I asked him to pose with them, and in a very
jolly guffaw he delighted in doing just that. They really found
the perfect guy to pull this off. In a convincing Russian accent
(mind you I wouldn't be able to tell a convincing Russian accent
from an unconvincing Russian accent if my life depended on it) and
joked about crime in New York City and the old days in the USSR.
Really quite brilliant. Of course, I would have loved being one
of those in the know laughing from the sidelines, but you can't
always be so lucky.
posted the pic we took mainly because I didn't know who the hell
he was, and I suspected no one else would either. And I didn't find
out that I'd been duped until this morning in my Yahoo
Group from someone who'd run accross the page.
you that I'll never fall for something like this again, unless of
course it's someone really big like Christopher Reeves, Kurt Cobain
or George Washington or somethin'. Now that'd be awesome!!

contest, draw me being completely fooled posing with somebody obviously
dead trying to promote
my magnets. Whoever makes me look like the biggest tool gets
to suck my big fat dick. Ready? Go!
I'll get you started.
about the entire prank here at ImproveEverywhere.com
(I'm towards the bottom of the page.)
you actually believe that Satan can be saved?
for Satan? Are you nuts?
Are you for real?
Is this a joke? Do you actually believe that Satan can be
saved? He is so unsavable..as much as Jesus cannot sin. He
is the Father of Lies and the Great Deceiver..among many other
characteristics too numerous to mention. I will pray for you,
brother..or are you?
Yes, but isn't
that why it's called "A miracle?" Look it up, Sandra. Even
the impossible is possible through God. Luke 18:27
Or do you think your God is not powerful enough? Shame. I
will pray for you.
right now I pray for "Bob"..take the veil from his eyes.
You should read
the Book of Revelations....Satan's destiny is already written..hell
is not a place you want to spend eternity, young man.
Father, right now
I pray for "Bob"..take the veil from his eyes. Open the eyes
of his heart so he can see the truth...the REAL TRUTH. Give
him a Damascus Road experience, if need be.In Jesus Name,
Amen. Bob, Jesus died for you...even if you were the only
person on earth, He would have died for you. When He was on
the Cross, you were on His mind.
In His Grip,
Dear God, I pray
for Sandra Almeida who does not understand the true girth
of your power. Men like me and Sandra are easy for you to
save, and I do not believe that it is any more difficult for
you to save Satan just the same. I believe in your majesty
and understand the limitlessness of your mercy. You forgave
Jeffrey Dahmer, one of the evilest, homicidal cannibals ever
to walk the earth, and I know you have the courage to forgive
Satan as well. Please lift the blankets of doubt from Sandy's
head. She does not understand who you really are and what
pure grace really is. Show her that you truly are the ultimate
purveyor of love unto ALL living beings. When He was on the
Cross, even Satan was on His mind.
Total faith in You.
cannot help but wonder why so many atheists such as yourself
spend their entire life trying to discredit someone whom
they say they do not even believe.
I cannot help but
wonder why so many atheists such as yourself spend their entire
life trying to discredit someone whom they say they do not
even believe. If you do not believe in God or Jesus Christ,
then why are you spending so much time and effort trying to
mock Him? It seems to me that if you don't believe in something,
then you basically just go on about your business focusing
on the things in which you do believe.
Is Jesus a joke
to you because he died on a cross? or is He a joke because
He claimed to be the Son of God? I really don't see the humor
in that. Many people have claimed to be God and/or Jesus...so
why aren't you making fun of them? It's not very unsettling
to me, though - what you do, that is... I know that Jesus
Christ knew that you would be doing these things when he died
on the cross - which ironically enough is exactly why he died
- to save all sinners. Yes, Normal Bob Smith, yourself included.
You are a sinner just like the rest of us. What you do isn't
shocking to anyone. There is not much of a shock value in
this generation - we've seen it all. It saddens me although
I don't even know you, because I know that whether someone
chooses to believe in God or not, he's real. One day you will
admit to that too.
I found myself
reading that first sentence of your email again and again
and again. It is the sentence where you said you cannot help
but wonder why so many atheists choose to discredit something
we do not believe. I couldn't believe the statement was for
real, as if I had misunderstood it or something, but as I
read further I realized that it's just as you meant it.
Cindy, I am dying
to satisfy that wonder. To be the one who clears the smoky
air so that you can see the true colors of all which surrounds
you, and one of the important purposes we humans have on our
Did you know that
children are being taught that the bible is true? Little kids
email me thinking that one day long ago a man died on a cross
to free planet earth of its sins for those who believe it
to be true! There are little children in big buildings being
told that there were never any dinosaurs, that they are a
hoax manifested by scientists working for Satan, either that
or the dinos lived along side human beings like Noah, Moses,
Christ, etc. These children are being told that animals, under
the power of God, have spoken words out loud, that life doesn't
evolve, pride is a sin, and there aren't any answers to their
questions so instead they must be satisfied with faith. These
things that are the building blocks of ignorance are being
preached to people all across America and around the world
with the instructions not to question, with the threat of
eternal suffering. Such horrible pictures to paint on something
only strung together by hope.
Now you ask me
why I try to discredit it? Well, wonder no more, Cindy Minter.
I have your answer in hand, and it is blasphemy to the core!
It is the same answer you would give for why we should discredit
any untrue teaching. And if you are not discrediting teachings
that you know to be false then it is you whom I wonder about.
Jesus is a joke
to me because he was only a man and not a god. And instead
of dying for the salvation of mankind he has died only so
that we can sell fables as fact and guilt people out of their
common sense. His death has been romanticized to such an extent
that it's no longer a tribute, instead only an embarrassment.
So Cindy, as long
as there are obvious untruths being taught as truth I will
do my best to discredit them. And the mere fact that you are
left to wonder why exposes the tremendous lack of thought
you yourself have put into the matter at hand. You've no right
to condemn anyone to your luminous skies of fear. All of your
reasons are empty.
Balls in your mouth.
see it takes intellict to debate such a concept as Christianity.
I'm so glad to
receive a response from you. I have seemingly stirred something
inside of you - which is good. You see, Bob, you seem to be
overlooking the obvious. You plainly stated in your email,
"... as long as there are obvious untruths being taught as
truth I will do my best to discredit them." You do not even
realize that you are not in fact an atheist. You are most
certainly working for a "higher power" - his name is Satan.
You see, you are
only choosing to try to discredit Jesus Christ. Santa Claus
is just one of many fictional characters (tooth fairy, Easter
bunny, etc.) that children are taught to believe until they
are old enough to realize their parents were lying to them
for years. I don't see any Buddha fridge magnets for sale
on your website...or how about a Muhammad dressup doll? These
"gods" aren't of any concern to Satan because they aren't
real; therefore, they aren't of any concern to you.
One purpose for
selling these items is to try to arouse anger among Christians.
I know this because if anyone does a search on "Jesus", your
website is the second one to appear on a list of millions.
It does not appear on an "atheist" search, or even on a "halloween"
search (at least not the first 10 pages). Your intentions
aren't to promote your beliefs (if any) nor to promote the
empty concept of atheism, but to promote blasphemy of Jesus
seeking fulfillment in their life always turn to faith for
answers. If someone wanted to find out more about Jesus online,
they would type in "JESUS" and do a search. Coincidental that
your site is second (on Google) among a list of 21 million?
I think not.
The thing is, Bob,
you are not trying to discredit Jesus, you have merely made
a refrigerator magnet as a dress-up doll! Is that the best
you've got?? You see it takes intellict to debate such a concept
as Christianity. A dress-up doll...that's what you call discrediting
Jesus Christ? Sounds to me like you may need to try a little
harder. It's going to take more than that to change the minds
of millions who believe. I understand you are targeting children.
Children lack wisdom and are weak-minded and vulnerable. That's
probably the level on which you belong, though, Bob.
Also, Bob, I haven't
condemned you. You said yourself, "... if you are not discrediting
teachings that you know to be false then it is you whom I
wonder about." You are teaching young children that Jesus
is joke; something to be dressed up and mocked. You need not
wonder about me, Bob.
do you only have a cartoon image of yourself on your website?
You have no other contact information other than your
web address. Are you ashamed of your site? Do you fear
recognisance? You sound so bold and so proud while you're
hiding behind your cartoon images.
Hopefully you will
be just as anxious to address this question as you were my
previous... Why do you only have a cartoon image of yourself
on your website? You have no other contact information other
than your web address. Are you ashamed of your site? Do you
fear recognisance? You sound so bold and so proud while you're
hiding behind your cartoon images. So, this means you have
no real place of business other than sitting in your home
in front of your PC. Indeed, you're quite the success, Bob!
I do not discredit your God-given artist talent; however,
I am certain as to why we will never see your work in the
Sunday comics or any other nationally published newspapers
All right, intellectual
debates are not my strong point. I am a cartoonist, so my
discrediting of Jesus Christ is expressed through my drawings.
That's how I operate. Sorry! And your suggestion that I "try
harder" to debate the issue, well, I don't think that's necessary.
My magnets say it all, and if people want to know more on
the matter then there are plenty of other sites on the Internet
for them to visit.
I am a private
person, Cindy. I choose to hide behind my cartoon image because
my beliefs aren't anyone else's business. I shouldn't have
to defend everything all the time. I have the right to freedom
of speech and that includes a noble silence. Sometimes there
is more strength in being silent, don't you think? I do.
that I am working for Satan, well, I can assure you that is
not the case. Not only do I believe strongly that he probably
doesn't exist at all, but I also once used to worship him
and I know the sound of Satan in my ear when I hear it. Those
voices are long gone and the only voice I hear now is the
one telling me that the voice is MY OWN and to keep discrediting
Jesus via dress-up style magnet kits.
And as for getting
piublished, I have been published! It's a paper with high
distribution that a friend of mine publishes. He's printed
hundreds of his papers and it might get picked up by a magazine
the fuck was going thru ur trifflin ass head to make a
web site like that of jesus
Subject: what da
why would u make
sum dumb ass shit like this??? wut the fuck was going thru
ur trifflin ass head to make a web site like that of jesus
RE: "what da fuck"
Need I go on?
That's a very good
question, Jammie. The thing that was going through my "trifflin
ass head" when I made that website was a feeling that the
people who believed in God were wrong. In fact, it was a sure
feeling that the stories of Jesus raising people from the
dead, walking on top of the water, and being the Son of God
were all tall tales, make-believe stories, enhancements/revisions
to the life story of a man who was just a man. That's what.
Then I started to weigh out reasons people believe it all
to be true. It didn't take to long before I figured out that
the reason for belief had nothing to do with proof, logic
or science for that matter. That's why faith plays such an
essential role in religion.
So I asked myself
again: What are the reasons people believe? You know? Why
even begin to believe it in the first place if there's no
evidence backing any of it up? And I realized that most people
start believing it simply because they've been taught it from
the start, since they were children. Now, I don't know about
you, but I was told stories as a child that still linger in
the back of my head as truth! Like "Fish don't feel pain."
That's a quote from my grandpa who's a fisherman. I always
used to feel bad for the fish when I saw them being cleaned
and gutted while they were still clearly alive, so he told
me that fish don't feel pain. I swear I believed that for
years, and it still raises the question up in my head every
once in a while. And you want to know why? Because it was
told to me by an adult when I was a kid. Imagine how something
like that can stick with you if everyone around you is saying
it, pastors, teachers, neighbors, relatives all telling you
that Jesus is God, Noah saved all the animals and angels look
over us while we sleep. That's how religions go - passed down
through the generations, adult to child.
Now I know that
many adults convert to Jesus as well, but those adults generally
do it for a very similar reason. It's still an inability to
parent ones self so the role is given to this imaginary parent
From all of this
I concluded that people are willing to push all logic aside
and believe the outrageous stories simply for that feeling
of safety a God watching over them gives. This is what people
do instead of accepting the obvious less safe alternative
- God & Satan are made-up. And this is the precise reason
I made what you've referred to as "sum dumb ass shit like
I hope that I've
answered your questions and perhaps opened your eyes at least
a little to why what you believe is a load of horse shit.
