Is this meant to be the argument from geography? Well you're going to have to discount the bible then, it's extremely geographically inaccurate!

There is no such thing as magic.
Repeat it over and over again.

Damn! I was going to cast spells on Santa, the Easter Bunny, Elvis and aliens! :-(

I...wait, does he think HP is real?

So I can turn a rat into a goblet? Or fly on a broomstick? Or raise a dragon? I just can't banish a demon of fire and shadow into the pits of Khazad-dum.

Gandalf's magic is totally invented, not based in reality(like Harry Potter is)
Stop right there! Back up a little...
Ok, now Wha?
4/30/2007 6:45:16 PM
Wait-Harry Potter's magic is real?! This is news.
4/30/2007 7:01:17 PM
Oh that is RICH!!

Wait a minute. Gandalf and HP were both in books, and then in movies! That makes them both real.

Harry Potter is real but Gandalf isn't, does that mean that Jesus is Harry Potter?
4/30/2007 8:42:49 PM
the real thing, real magic, is evil
('the Ark couldn't support itself unless it was made with aluminum')
It could float on its top with the Lord in control.\"
So, Jesus, doing this and healing lepers, is pure evil?

Oh man are we poppin a cherry here?! AHAAHAA!

And just what makes Harry Potter more real?
5/2/2007 7:15:03 PM
If magic was real, Gandalf's brand would probably be more likely.

@Julian - Is this meant to be argument from geography?
If it's anything thing then it is argument from extreme stupidity.

It's an argument from believing The Onion is a news source.

Hey, have you REALLY met Harry Potter in Surrey or are you fucking kidding me?

Banning books is nuts, but he makes an astute distinction between the two. In Harry Potter, most anyone can have magic. In LotR, only a few have the gift, it's not something you could go out and try.
Credit where credit is due. He's still a fundie fucktard though.

If I hadn't just read about God's Holy, Righteous Penis, this would be the greatest thing I'd ever read.

Gandalf's magic is totally invented, not based in reality(like Harry Potter is).
just because I watch Gandalf do his magic does not mean that I am going to go out and try it myself and believe that I am capable of magic.
"Golfinguy", so you believe that the magic of the Harry Potter series is real? Well, then go out and try it for yourself!
8/9/2011 3:11:02 AM
Damn that harry potter, he turned me into a newt! I got better, does that make it ok now?

Sorry, I can tell you Harry Potter magic is not real. Not a single one of my Horcruxes worked. :'(

"Gandalf's magic is totally invented, not based in reality(like Harry Potter is)."
So, what you're saying is that...:
...the anime series "Kiddy Girl-and" is a documentary?!
(^"Ascoeur Potter and the Half-Blood ES-Member") X3
"Hey, have you REALLY met Harry Potter in Surrey or are you fucking kidding me?"
Never mind the 'Leap of Faith' taken by Indy in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade", I'd pay good money to see ROFLinguy here go to Kings Cross station in London:
...and try to enter Platform 9¾. After all, a magical doorway exists there, because it - to quote him verbatim - is'based in reality(like Harry Potter is).'
And you know he'd keep trying, his 'faith' being such that he even makes such statements. Thus he'd be like one of those old 'bump-n-go' toys of yore, which keeps backing up and going in the same direction, to no avail.
The station staff (whose business has gone up greatly, post-book publishing/film releases) there would love a good laugh, as would the tourists there - even the "HP" enthusiasts - who know the difference between reality and fiction.
