I want to barf ..... [with EDIT]

For some reason this fundy spam I got from Mama Ewok has left me feeling queasy. Literally. *blech* And unlike Sean I don't think this one will taste good. Maybe it's the vacuuous comment that accompanied the forwarded "message".

What is doubly unfortunate is that the fundy making the comment is an intelligent highly talnted musician who has compartmentalized her brain to accept Jebus as her personal savior. Part of what bothers me about this is that instead of appealing to emotions and wishful thinking as most fundy spam does this one... well you'll see.

This is extraordinary! It is quite thought provoking. Betty

Beauty of Math!

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 888888 88
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888


Brilliant, isn't it?

And look at this symmetry:


1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 12345432 1
1 11111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111=12345678987654321


Now, take a look at this...101%

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:

What Equals 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been in situations where someone wants you to GIVE OVER 100%.

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help answer these
questions:

If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.



If:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%



And:

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%



But:

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%



THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:

L-O-V-E-O-F-G-O-D

12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101%



Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:

While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Love of God that will put you over the top!

*gack*

My apologies to anyone who read that all the way through to completion without skipping to find out where it was going.

[EDIT]

My daughter is visiting Mama & Papa Ewok (the source of this email). She forwarded it to me with her own personal addendum...

Oh Yeah!?
O-b-j-e-c-t-i-v-i-s-m
15+2+10+5+3+20+9+22+9+19+13=
127%


I thought this was neat. Gramma and Grampa never saw it.

Love you


I am so very proud of her. :D

A one recently experienced in barfing I would suggest another path.

Fiery said...

I abhor barfing and will go to great lengths to avoid it.

Samuel Skinner said...

But love of evil gets you 123%.

Poodles said...

I was eating when I read that! Eeeeewwwww!

Richard said...

I was eating too. Gack.

It's the same sh_t, different pile: 100% IS "everything", and >100% is impossible.

As usual, the Fundies want to control your struggles with the possible, by promising you the impossible. It's one 'Hell' of a fraud.

Fiery said...

I'm rather partial to
"god not real"
111
:D

Lynn said...

//I'm rather partial to "god not real" = 111//

Whoa. I am struck by the symmetry - and purposeful beauty - of the number 111; obviously the product of Design, not random chance.

Fiery said...

Well Lynn, that's the thing about numbers, they're just so... so... random. It took *ages* to manipulate them to come out with 111 like that.

;)

Fiery said...

Hey Richard! NICE PIC!!!!

It's unfortunate the falling snow doesn't show up. Can you imagine the size of the flakes if it did????
:D

Pissed Off Pete said...

Who the hell wrote that drivel? A bunch of Pythagoreans? Everything is numbers?

Fuck off! = 68 = You do me and I'll owe you one! lol

Thump Thump Eyes said...

I'm thinking "fuckwit fundy" = 163%

Has a nice ring to it...

OzAtheist said...

don't ya just luv numbers?

LOVE OF GOD = 101
HUMANIST = 105

Humanist wins.
----------------------------
JESUS IS REAL = 138
BUT
JESUS IS A MYTH = 169

This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt Jesus is a myth.
----------------------------
Good on your clever daughter for coming up with 'objectivism'.

Richard said...

SOCIALIST = 96
CAPITALIST = 106
EPISTEMOLOGIST= 161 !!!!

I guess its better to be a "Fuckwit Fundy" (163) than an ordinary Epistemologist (161).

Fuckwit Fundy is two words, so try this:

OBJECTIVIST EPISTEMOLOGIST = 134 + 161 = 295!.

Bada Boom Bada Bing!

Okay so it's all stupid.
We knew that anyway.
Thanks for nuttin', Betty.
