A mind blowing example of Poe's Law: It's like Brass Eye....ON ACID!

The Rational Wiki defines Poe's Law as follows:

Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won't mistake for the real thing.

Of course it works both ways, often I stumble over religious material so insane that I believe it to be parody, but which is, in fact, genuine. For example here are some church websites. I should warn you that they are both visual and noisy. But it still won't prepare you for what you are about to see. They are amazingly awesome.

After watching all these I'm so stoked I could fight a bear. I genuinely think they are amazing. They all seem to have been produced by SharperFX who specialise in making websites. Websites for insane churches.

If Chris Morris was to create a Brass Eye Episode about these churches, his parody would be interchangeable with the real thing and no one, on either side, could tell.

And that kinda makes me happy.

These are amazing. From the Sharper site, it's not as whizzBangAWESOME!, but if there is ever an 'Outrun Church2Church', look no further for the soundtrack: http://www.ltanyamooremusic.com/

Meanwhile, the St John Missionary Baptist Church intro makes me think that Baptazia could be real after all:

Gotta take that back, the Evangel Cathedral one is just as bad, and obviously put together by the same person. They make baby Jesus cry; I'm scared to continue down the list.

cheap nike shoes even now show the sportsmanship. On important sports occasions, you will surely see many sports stars wearing nike shoes.
