Sometimes it may seem that we overestimate Armstrongists, and perhaps that’s true. We’ve debunked British Israelism, shredded Armstrongist beliefs using the Bible itself, explored the evidence, facts and science to demonstrate how stupid and foolish Armstrongism is, while attempting to take the high road of high concept to reasonable conclusions, assuming that people would be reasonable and do research for themselves.

We’ve taken the approach that basically people are seeking the truth and want to know what the facts are. Truth seeking was supposed to be inherent from the statements of Herbert Armstrong given to insist that we “prove all things”.

The thing is that we’ve found this doesn’t work. When confronted with facts, science, evidence and truth, Armstrongists, particularly the leaders, dig in their heels and not only refuse to change, to accept what is true, but they instantly become aggressive apologists attacking the messengers.

What we’ve concluded is that these idiots aren’t as advanced and sophisticated as we may have hoped. Here’s an example from a comment at Banned!:

For those who missed my reply to myth-maker Black Ops Mikey on the Exidus,catch it in the thread dealing with LCG headquarters below Ian Boyne

You see our problem.

We’re going to try a new approach, briefly. We’re going to go with the Least Common Denominator, designed for the low I.Q., uneducated, stupid religious bigot idiots to the right of Genghis Khan, wallowing in the self-righteousness of whatever cesspool they came from, pretending that they are some sort of ‘authority’. In the United States, 23% of the adult population is effectively illiterate and somewhere around 15% to 20% of the adult population has dyslexia. Mississippi adult population has the lowest average I.Q. of any of the states within the United States. It is for these minus I.Q. pill takers that we address this following video, full of colorful metaphors which even the lowest of the LCDs should be able to comprehend:

Hopefully, it’s not too complicated for them.

  1. My personal preference in analysis is to look for cognitive dissonance arising from inconsistent or “dynamic” doctrines. Armstrongism doesn’t corner the market on doctrinal discrepancies.
    I find this with the small Protestant church of choice of my parents. I’ve gone through some generic Protestant magazines some of the members get, and have explained some of the inconsistencies. Sometimes I think a matter has been resolved, only to find some months later, the belief in question returns as if nothing happened.

  2. Right, except with the Armstrongists it’s deliberate — they never wanted the truth in the first place and if they can’t refute what you are saying they will use a diversionary tactic: No, no, let’s not discuss that, look over here.

    One of the insulting things is that we’ve had some of these cult leaders want to come on the Painful Truth and post articles, and that’s just fine, but they put conditions on it like, “Well, we’ll admit that some changes will be made, but we won’t discuss the leaders (or founders)”. Guess what, that’s exactly what we’ll discuss because they are the problem. These people want to come on to sell, sell, sell and don’t really care about anything that looks like the truth — they want to get their foot in the door to convince people their product is exactly what they need, when it is exactly the opposite from anything that anyone needs.
