You see, Christianity is a lot like a pickle shoved into an electrical socket.

So when you "put energy" into a pickle it becomes unedible an useless. I don't want that kind of energy, I'm fine with calories.
I don't see what's so funny. It's a good analogy. And, as Matt sayed, perhaps you all could learn something from this video.
if you become a christian you are stabbed and eletrocuted till a higher power decides to stop zapping you, then youturn yellow? I don't think I'm gonna become a christian. poor special pickle
When you become a christian, we will stab you repeatedly and electrocute you until you glow. That is the message of this movie.
I love the fact he always says WHEN you become a christian, he never says IF.
May the pickle of Christ compel thee. lol
All I got from this video is that if you become a christian, you will morph into a pickle, and be stabbed with forks, then be electricuted and compared to your non suffering brethren. Christianity is messed up... D:
NO its a burnt pickle...stupid christains
So Christians are pickle smokers....like Ted Haggard? That is a really bad analogy. Pickles are useful for sustaining life and adding flavor to other foods. An electrified pickle may be "prettier" to you, but it loses it's utility. It can't be eaten like that and left unchecked will burn down the house. Likewise, the truth about man's mortality may be ugly to you, but plugging into a fairytale about eternal life only makes you less useful and more dangerous to the world around you.
Rectification: this video TRIES to have a good message, and we laugh at its epic ridiculousness.
Besides, I don't consider an incitation to plug yourself to a hypothetical entity in a hope to gain power a good message.
I agree with Matt, yet alot of these comments are most likely by Athiests you can tell but how they say stupid things such as "I hate Christians even more now" or "Christianity fries your brain" you don't get it.... this video was ment to have a good message not be made fun of and if you wanted to watch this video then why place comments about how you obviously wern't paying any attention?
its a pickle Christmas light!
Using Science to explain christianity, hmmmm? Am I the only one who sees the gap in this persons logic?
I MUST BE A BELIEVER... I have alot of gas, just like that pickle!!! (sometimes i leak too)
Wow, worst analogy ever... I can't believe he was allowed to make this. God, why do you let idiots misinterpret you?
Uber Asphalt inquired: If this is a regular Christian, what does that make Jesus?
I'd say a cucumber, or perhaps a zuccini.
Perhaps with holes in it too, so he can be a holy cucumber.
Catholicism is like a pickle, too. But where it goes, no one can see if it's glowing or not.
iÂ´ll never be able to eat a pickle without thinking of jesus
I am a Christian Pickle! But I don't want to have forks stuck in my head and be plug in to a wall socket! Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Confusion!!!!!!!!!
so what your saying is that if we become christian,then it will heat us and likely destroy us?
well no wonder most of them are a-holes.
I would be too if I was getting killed by a religoen.
i think the real metaphor here is that Christianity fries your brain
If this is a regular Christian, what does that make Jesus?
I hate Christians even more now.
Best and yet worst metaphor ever.
I agree with Matt,(Im Christian)but Letchey has a point in that in using an electricly charged pickle,you kind of look ridiculous
You know what would be fun?
Doing the same trick with the pickle, but instead of a clunky metaphor about religion, instead do it as a fun science experiment. Using it to explaining some interesting properties of electricity. Explaining why it makes the pickle light up in terms of applied electrophysics.
That ought piss off some fundies. Knowledge is off the devil to them after all, judging by their wars on biology and astronomy... :D
No matter how much I think, I can't find where that link between chemistry and faith comes from.
I understand Matt that Christianity has many ups (and downs) but when you(feel the need to)compare it to a pickle that is have thousands of volts shot through it, it looses a bit of it's respectability.
Oh, How i love the innuendos...
you know if yall would not take him so literally and listen to what he was saying u might actually learn something. being a christian isnt about two pickles and electricity its about a personal relationship with God. but the pickle trick is cool as well.
SCIENCE AND RELIGION!
THE WORLD'S GONNA EXPLODE
how can you compare frying an effing pickle to religion omg this just drives me crazy!. "look at it sparkle as thousand of volts shoot through a pickle!"
my only question is...
was it kosher?
I don't think I want to be a Christian... I don't want a fork shoved up my ass and be electricuted till I look like Christmas lights.
Exactly what I was thinking Cynn and M.
So if you become christian, they jam a giant fork up your ass, and stick another in your skull, hang you off a swing made of rubber bands and then electrocute you till you sparkle, then start smoking and leaking?
admin....cmon...i thought you knew better....did you want this http://www.digyourowngrave.com/2006/this-is-inappropriate-take-us-off-your-list/#comments
to happen again?
Wait. Christianity teaches that we all look and taste about the same?
I was thinking the guy was joking about that religious stuff until it just went way too far to be a joke. And he says specifically to not try it at home. How does that work?
The whole light up the pickle thing was neat, but I don't think I'd choose that sort of sermon to listen to on a Sunday morning.
God said "Thou shalt be like a pickle with forks in it connected to an electrical outlet"?
I must've missed that part. Must be from that missing chapter after Revelations - Bicks.
so..if i really want to be close to jesus...i..have to stick a fork in my butt?
I like this one better...
"Who's ever kissed a chipmunk? That's just nonsense..."
This is actually quite accurate: exaggerate with religion and it will fry your brain.
Then you'll definitely be different: you'll be that ugly, weird shaped soft pickle that no one wants to eat.
Setting aside the obviously stupid demonstration, I love how he directly discards the analogy by telling you how dangerous it is to fill the pickle with the same energy that supposedly was making Christianity so great ten seconds ago.
So if i become a Christian ill light up and start exploding and leaking?
