If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Bwahaha, I've seen that before.

And I love how they have warnings for nudity, sexual content, violence, cursing.

Yeah, this is pretty cool, but I'm not much for translation of the Bible. It just isn't the Bible for me if it doesn't use complex words and phrasing. Just doesn't sound right to me. Oh, well, that's just what I'm used to.

Cool, though. I love legos (and no, I don't want to marry them).

I love it. Although, once again, someone has *entirely* too much time on their hands.

Which, as I've said before, is the only reason most of the content on the Internet exists.

Oh, I don't know about 'too' much time.  It seems like this guy has a good marketing strategy going, and he's certainly producing a product with wide appeal.  I'll bet he does all right with it.

Interesting, this guy has a very Jehovah's Witnesses take on some points (such as the sons of God marrying the daughters of man). I haven't read enough of the site to know, but does it say anywhere what religion (if any) the creator belongs to?

<edit>I read more and more and got very confused, as he seems to be borrowing interpretations from a number of different religions. Then I finally read the FAQ and saw that he is not a member of any "earthly religion." Makes sense.

he also isn't a real "reverend" despite his pretended moniker. He says so himself. I think this is more for fun reasons than actual religious reasons.
