I was at Barnes & Noble today and a book in the "Christianity" section caught my eye (they put the Atheist and scientific literature in "Social Sciences", which is loscated suspiciously close to the "Christianity" section). It's called "Prepare for War" by Dr. Rebecca Brown. I read the back cover and it's all about combating satan's influence by being aware of his "doorways" such as yoga, role-playing games, and meditation. I shit you not.
I put the book back on the shelf, picked up a Sam Harris book and a book on the Scopes trial, and left (I paid for the books first). On my way to my pro-Atheist bumper sticker-covered car, I thought to myself, where do they come up with this stuff?
So I looked up Dr. Rebecca Brown online. Turns out that unlike "Dr." Kent Hovind, who only has a certificate from Patriot Bible University, Brown actually is a doctor. She studied theology at a Christian university for seven years.
So now, I'm still trying to figure where evangelicals like her connect the Downward-Facing Dog pose and World of Warcraft to satanism. Dan Brown couldn't write that connection and he connected anti-matter with the goddamn Illuminati.
I know a lot of Evangelicals are making up stuff like this for publicity, but I find it difficult to believe that they all are and I think at least a few of them actually believe their bullshit. My question is, where do they come up with this stuff?
