    Hmph. I'll have to direct my buddies from church to this site, to get their opinion. I do agree with the comment on 'mind control' or advertisements.

    BTW: I do NOT lick my computers buttons.


    P.S I wonder if that site was made on an Apple, or on a pc?

    Evidently I am a devil-worshipper, a pagan (can I be both?), a Darwinist and a Communist.

    Geez. And I only wanted to get work done.

    And this guy teaches? <shudder>

    This was horrible.
    This person really sounds convinced, like truly convinced about this.

    I wonder what religious people would say to him if he tried to say this to him.

    Hey, wait a minute, is it "wrong" to steal, according to the Bible?
    Because if so, he should research Windows, and talk of how they are Evil.
    Then of course he would no longer be able to use a computer.

    Shudder, I have never read such an anti apple article, this guy really did his research.

    What bothers me is, frankly I don't care what religion Steve Jobs is, or if he is Atheist or anything like that. As long as he does not HURT anyone, and continue to run a company that makes good computers. You see, it doesn't matter what someone THINKS, their actions are what speak, and frankly, basing an os, and all that stuff on atheism is fine, as long as they don't actively try to convert people to atheism, maybe this person is just mad because computer users (or maybe nerds is a better term in this day and age) tend to be less religious?


    Also, as religion is a touchy subject, I am sorry if I have offended anyone.

    Addendum 5 -

    Apple and mind control via a reality distortion device used to make Ellen Fleiss look stoned? :p

    The article says: "Shows like Pokemon, which features animals "evolving" into new forms, and popular movies like Jurassic Park and X-Men provide a continuous cultural fog of Evolutionism that is impossible for innocent children to escape from."

    Excuse me but can we say this reflects the New American Reality or maybe it is an Old American Reality that doesn't like previous court decisions Whatever it is pretty faith based rather than logical.

    What is it spoofing? I've read other sites that are just as kooky. Some are plain scarey, the anti-abortion websites are havens for psychopaths.

    hehe... haven't seen that one before. I don't care if it's a spoof or not- it was incredibly entertaining regardless :D

    insane

    If this is a spoof, they put a lot of work into it.

    I could be real though, it's unbelievable what some people will believe.

    Remember the weapons of mass destruction?

    Me too. WTF? :confused:

    From the context, though, I think I have seen this before. If it's what I think it is, yes, it's a gag. Something about Apple being connected to evil and satanism and such?

    Hilarious. My favorite part:

    I suspect "chmod" is code for "come hell's military of darkness".

    Anyways, when I got to the part about the eMac I was sure that the whole thing was a satire, but poking around on their main page gave me doubts. If it is a parody, its eerily close to the real thing. If its the real thing, its eerily close to a parody.

    Great find though, thanks for posting.

    That we even think this could be serious is sad.....

    Not sad on our part, but sad on the part of closed minded religious groups.

    An old story - probably a spoof. But even if it is a spoof then some people will end up believing it and a new sect will be born.

    I had not seen this article. Spoof/parody or not, it's one of the funniest things I've read in a while :D

    Maybe he should do an update and tell everyone how the 'iPod Mini' promotes 'midget porn', or explain the mystical, super natural attributes of the 'Apple Wireless Keyboard/Mouse', or how a product named 'GarageBand' is aimed at turning our teens into a bunch of drug addicted, slacker, rock music performers . . .
