electricbleachers: Head 'splodey! (AUGH!)
A friend directed me to this: http://wikibin.org/articles/cullenism.html

"Cullenism is a religion based on the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. This series, which consists of four books, follows the adventures of The Cullen family and several other characters including Bella Swan. The Cullen family are a group of extremely attractive vampires and the film adaption of Twilight turned the series into reality for many fans. One of the two main characters of the story, Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattison in the film) captured many girls hearts from the moment the film hit the big screen. Not that girls weren't already in love with Edward from the books, but the film appears to have taken the attraction to the next level. The Cullenism religion is the belief that the books are so good that the Cullen family deserve to be worshipped and the books treated like a bible. A member of the Cullenism religion is known as a Cullenist."

It almost leaves me with no words though I kind of expected such a thing to develop.

People, it's a work of FICTION! Same as Dianetics! Harry Potter! Avatar! It's make believe! NOT REAL! If Edward is real then so is Blade and he's coming for your big-haired douchebag Count Emo Von Disco Ball. If everything they're saying is real then Severus Snape followed in Dumbledore's footsteps and is secretly gay, and he eloped with Edward. It's true! It MUST be true since they DO exist right? Right?

Things like this only affirm my own leanings towards atheism. Honestly if one looks at the Bible from a standpoint of pure logic, it's a few historical events wrapped up in several layers of fiction. I could probably do similar by combining world history with The Hobbit and the Narnia Chronicles.

My point is simple. A lot of people out there would tell me about my beliefs,"Just because you say something doesn't exist doesn't mean that it actually doesn't!" Well by the same token, just because you say something does exist doesn't mean that it actually does. Get the complete set of facts before you start professing. If you're daft enough to believe a work of complete fiction, and a rather crappy one at that like Twilight, then I'd love to know what you're doing out without a handler. Time to go up your Haldol dosages not by milligrams but by factors.

The whole Teabagger movement is further proof to the statement I heard a while back. "The Democrats have moved to the right while the Republicans have moved into the psych ward."

I know I need to keep up on the news more, but lately hearing about the crap they're spouting just tends to honk me off to the point that let's just say my blood pressure doesn't need it.
