    Good ol' Nick, exploring uncharted new territories of will-do-anything-for-a-paycheck. I hear Brendan Fraiser is narrating a remake of Triumph of the Will.

    I was a bible thumper back when the books first came out and thought they were the bees knees. Then the 7 book series turned into a "Lets make as much money as possible with as many new installments as possible" endeavor and I quit. Never saw the first movie but I dont imagine this reboot will see the light of day. Hudson blames the Jews.

    Did anyone read the book(s)? I've seen them mentioned, but I have no idea if they're good.

    I hope there's a scene where Nicolas Cage screams, "No! Not the Rapture! Not the Rapture! Oh god, it's in my eyes!"

    *raises hand*

    Christianfletcher read the first... 6? Utter tripe. The story about the Antichrist coming back after the rapture was just pathetic. iirc it was supposed to be 6 books but they milked it to ten or more? I honestly dont remember and dont care to google it.

    Edit: Just did anyway, 16 fucking books? Jesus christ... (irony intended)

    Here are my questions:

    1. What made you accept Jesus Christ as your savior?

    2. What made you drop Him like a prom date that doesn't put out?

    1.) Proper indoctrination from a young age. As I got older I made a lot of friends with a lot of church people my age and did a lot of fun stuff over the years. It stuck even more because I went to a small Catholic school and never really made many friends so I was an primed to become an antisocial weirdo. Mission accomplished.
    2.) I came to my senses and realized that it was all just bullshit and I started to hate myself for getting roped in so hard. Some of the shit that came out of my mouth back then still gives me major cringes. Now Im a proper heathen and just trying to forget all that bullshit.

    I knew you were going to ask and there is no way in hell Im going throw myself under the bus that hard. Just know they were bad. Really bad.

    I did pass a lot of religion tests with "Because God loves us all" as the answer to any random questions. Imagine the church catechism classes with answers a million times more douchey.

    At least tell us what specific flavor of Christian you were. Were you a Christian rock type, a 700 Club viewer, perhaps a megachurch attendee?

    Lutheran, small church, christian rocker, and all around dunce. I wasnt preachy with it or a braggart, which should have told me that my conviction wasnt strong to begin with. Even when I was a praying type the megachurches embarrassed me. One popped up next to the highway here and all I could do was just roll my eyes. 700 Club is for old people and the megachurch sheep.

    Those dinosaur skulls and purple mansions don't just pay for themselves, you know.

    So they are actually Christian books? I mean I know they're based on biblical predictions, but do they have a "message" and all that nonsense?

    Big time. They are all about the survivors "finding jebus" and shit and big time in christian book stores (yeah, I have been to more than one). One of the writers was or is a big time evangelical I think.
