Quote# 8194

[From an administrator at Rapture Ready messageboard]

I believe this [people forming false memories] could happen. You tell yourself something long enough and you begin to believe it. I think (but don't know for sure, so don't quote me ) that this is the basic premise that brainwashing works by.

Irony meter reading 8.5 ...

This is a factual statement. What's the problem here? Without context of other fundie quotes, it means nothing.

I suppose that is a good point, Darth. I kind of assumed it was a fundie (in which case it would be extremely ironic), but this post in and of itself doesn't make it so.

I think the nuclear powered irony meter on TMI just suffered a severe meltdown. The evacuation sirens should be sounding off any minute...

First step: Recognizing the problem.

Very good...now on to the second.

That sounds like a good idea, Yahweh.

I don't get it. What about this, is the darndest thing?

Frisian, that would be the fact that it came from the Administrator of a board full of thoroughly brainwashed people. Hell they've even been on a full spin cycle and hung themselves up to dry!

So close, and yet so far......

So they finally tell us the secret behind all the miracles they witnessed. About time.

Just how many more times can they get so close and yet veer away from the edge at the last second?

5/5/2010 5:32:51 PM


I agree completely. The oly "darndest thing" is the source, as in, "Rapture Ready, isn't that the darndest thing?"

Not to mention religion.

Nothing fundie here. Kind of ironic though, when taken in context.

Ask the elder members of the Rapture Ready, dearie, they will know all about brainwashing.

12/10/2010 1:19:30 PM


Up on sexual molestation charges, Carman?

Seeing as there is no person in the western world more brainwashed than an American fundamentalist we will take that quote when it comes. Maybe not very fundy, but it sums fundies up very neatly.

> You tell yourself something long enough and you begin to believe it.

Well, you should know that better than any of us.

this could break an irony meter made of adamantium, diamond, and nokia 3310 parts.
