Avatar Crazy Religos: Who Really Rules The World?

In the second installment of Crazy Religos, I’ve decided to bring you the wonderfully insightful pamphlet, “Who Really Rules the World?” from the Jehovah’s Witnesses. If you didn’t think they were a bit odd for spending time going and bothering folks on their doorstep to talk about their imaginary friends then maybe you’ll be fine with the conculsions in here, but for the rest of us…

Its not who you think…

So… who did you think was in charge? The governments? The illuminati? The Women’s Institute? Apparently most of us think its God, despite the complete lack of evidence for his existence, and the fact that it isn’t.

Like the Jesus Disco leaflet, this one goes to great lengths to let us know that in fact it’s “The one called Devil and Satan”. Their proof for this (unsurprisingly) comes from the bible, but even by bible standards this one is a bit of a stretch. Their proof is that the Devil offered Jesus “all the kingdoms of the world”, to which Jesus said “Go away”.

I don’t know about you but I’ve had all sorts of cranks offer me things that don’t exist, and my response is generally something along the lines of “go away”. Yet to the JW’s this is proof enough that the Devil is in charge. If we apply that logic to the “Goop Expert” Kelly Brogan (Goop being the dangerous pseudoscience scam fronted by Gwyneth Paltrow) who said recently that the Coronavirus likely doesn’t exist because contagion “is not a conceptual framework that I operate within”. She’s an ‘expert’/crank so should we now have to believe that the virus doesn’t exist?

I’m ranting, I know.

Luckily (!) its all going to be ok because, despite old devil-chops having been in charge for the last 2000-odd years, “The time is now near when Satan and his Cohorts will be no more!”. “The world [and its demon rulers] is passing away”, claims some text allegedly written 2000 years ago.

So… errm… It’s all ok, the devil wont be in charge for much longer… because the world is ending…. 2000 years ago.

There seems to be a hole in the logic.

  • I always thought Phil Collins was in charge. Who’s this devil geezer? Does he write million-selling hit pop albums as well?

  • This is a bit of a side note but do you think Phil Collins would consider changing his name to Drill Vollins? It sounds much better.

    Was that even a joke? I don’t think it was. That was just an expression parading around as a joke in a false moustache.

  • With zingers like that you should be in the… oh wait, never mind. Some of us are too good to be in the frat-zing.

    Also, your face.

  • My face is an encyclopedia waiting to happen. It’s 1000 + pages of interesting shizz with pictures done by Axel Scheffler and a foreword by Dave Benson Phillips.

  • Interesting shizz is exactly what should be in an encyclopedia. I look forward to leafing through your beautifully-illustrated face next time we meet.
