That's what the EIGHT year olds playing BF1942, "one of the oldest games out there" they called it, kept yelling at eachother.
"I PWNED YOU, YOU AND YOUR MOM!" "OOOOOOOH, POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWNEED!!!"

Help me here - What is the verb(?) "to pwn?"
Idiotic post, BTW.
9/25/2007 9:53:47 PM
Nice to see a fundie admit that there is no other evidence or support for their religion.

Help me here - What is the verb(?) "to pwn?"
It's internet slang for completely, thoroughly and utterly besting someone at whatever activity you happen to be participating in at the moment. Usually it's used by gamers to insult one another.
Basically it's a corruption of "owned" that stuck. People, in their haste to deride their opponent, would mistype "own" as "pwn" since the 'P' and 'O' keys are fairly close together.
Ok, internet history lesson over. Back to making fun of fundies.
9/25/2007 10:04:23 PM
WOW.. what a putz.
9/25/2007 10:05:09 PM
Pwn? This is an insult to leetspeak. And I dislike the air of smugness here.
9/25/2007 10:08:58 PM
Can't. stop. laughing.
PS... if Satan is so powerful that he has no problem claiming pretty much everyone except the few, the proud, the idiotic fundies, then your lil old book ain't stopping him either.
And how many "scientists" and atheists are there per square mile?
9/25/2007 10:28:08 PM
I'll put this in a language you understand.
pi isnt 3. all your base are belong to us.

Trying to disarm me? That Bible is the only delusion in my arsenal against reality.
9/25/2007 10:41:27 PM
Shit, I just bought a whole gallon of Roundup for weeds and now AV1611 tells me it doesn't work!
9/25/2007 11:04:00 PM
Um...pwn has existed long before the internet. Though it spread quickly, pwn has been short hand for describing a game of chess in which the king is put in check utilizing only pawns. Make fun of him for being a fundie, not his usage of words. (all though he is probably an idiot and doesn't know the history of the word anyway.)
9/25/2007 11:04:17 PM
It's more like the place you retreat to after we destroy your arguments.
9/25/2007 11:16:26 PM
the roundup folks should sue you for implying that their product is as useless against weeds as your bible is against scientists.
9/25/2007 11:18:45 PM
Isn't the best way to measure a person's strength to disarm them and see how they fight bare-handed, metaphorically speaking? After all, any idiot can fire a gun, and any idiot can spout scripture like a water fountain, but in the end it doesn't really say anything about either person's innate skill.
Also, I'd like to see your statistics on "Atheists and 'Scientists' Pwned By Bible Per Square Mile", as well as data on the effectiveness of Roundup, and we'll make the decision as to which one "pwns" better ourselves.

Like a white person saying "bling" unironically...
Mediocre, historically questionable religious fantasy ** by A reader
I can't say I was impressed with this one. For one thing, it's not just one book, it's an anthology, which is fine, but if I wanted to read something like that, I'd go for something a little more respectable like Naked Came The Stranger or Atlanta Nights.
Among other things, I don't get the main protagonist, YHWH. As a God, he reads like a demented child shooting BBs at the goldfish in the first section, and in the second part he comes off as kind of absentee, with his kid taking over the action for a surprisingly short stint in the middle. (This, narratively, is actually kind of interesting, because it goes through his life four different times, using a different unreliable narrator each time. It's like Catch-22 on steroids.) But after that, we get some batshit weirdo named Paul spouting all kinds of rules and suggestions that don't seem to follow from what Jesus said.
Editing is sloppy at best; some of the most critical sections have multiple authors, including the first five books, which are a complete muddle, just barely smoothed out into a quasi-coherent narrative. There's a few hero stories I like (though I didn't get that one about Samson at all -- who is this guy supposed to appeal to? He was a dumb-as-a-brick musclehead who somehow had a leadership position.), though it seems liberally interspersed with tedious lists of laws and censuses, as well as some truly horrific scenes of hyperfanaticism. (I think there's got to be a special place in hell for that Jephthah boy.)
The songbook in the middle is interesting, if not exactly what I'd call fun, while Ecclesiastes sounds like it was written by some depressed gothboy and the Song of Songs was pretty much wall-to-wall horndoggery, like Lords of Acid on an Ecstasy overdose. The prophets are pretty messed up too (was Ezekiel schizophrenic? It's too difficult to make sense of without assuming they were the ravings of a paranoid madman.). There's also a lot of scenes and images of appalling violence and petty hatred straight out of the Turner Diaries.
I don't get this book. I really don't. I hear people saying it changed their life, and I'm forced to say "into what?". Oh well, some books are just critic-proof, and I guess this is one of them. If you get it, though, make sure you get the director's cut edition, because it includes a few extra books, including one that tells a nifty story involving potato pancakes.

Wow, resorting to gamer lingo when he has no argument... this hurts me in more ways than one...

Master Chief pwns the Flood
Gordon Freeman pwns the Combine
The Bible pwns nothing except the minds of those who believe its inerrancy.
9/26/2007 12:11:30 AM
As soon as they start spouting Bible at me I know I've won.
9/26/2007 12:31:05 AM
If all you can do is quote scripture at people, you can't actually prove anything.
9/26/2007 12:55:25 AM
And there was me thinking all youi needed was absolute faith and love of god and junior to protect you.
9/26/2007 2:15:25 AM
"Without my bible???
disarm me? That Bible is the only offensive Weapon mentioned in the arsenal against Satan in Ephesians 6.
It pwns more
"scientists" and atheists per square mile, than Roundup pwns weed s."
9/26/2007 2:57:45 AM
And what is your suggestion?, to throw it against your enemies?
9/26/2007 2:58:25 AM
... I've certainly seen it tried before. Their aim was horrid but hardcover books could still hurt someone when chucked with enough force.
9/26/2007 3:45:05 AM
Animals won't be born spotted or striped if their parents fuck while watching striped sticks.
It ain't a science text, sparky, any more than "1984" is a civics manual.
