Brazilian woman has spent years praying to Lord of the Rings doll

One mythology's as good as another
Grandma accidentally prays to Elrond from Lord of the Rings

Quote:The woman thought she was praying to Saint Anthony but it turns out the figure was Elmond [sic], Lord of Rivendell.

Her relative Gabriela Brandao made the discovery and posted it on Facebook with the caption: "The funniest discovery of 2016."

Separated at birth? They are wearing the same outfit.

Maybe Bergoglio should canonise Hugo Weaving, instead of that emaciated Albanian fraud?

Oh dear, having another God before the right one is a serious infraction indeed.

I'm curious, however, did Elrond approve the request ??

You know, I wonder if there would be a market for a book called "Starting your own mythology for the complete dummy"?
Belief .. is the insistence that the truth is what one would .. wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. 


Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be.

Yes, but it's a flooded market:

Hilarious Big Grin

The great thing as, as long as the person believes they are praying to the "right" thing, the confirmation bias will still work. As soon as they find out it was a hoax, they'll retroactively explain it all away.

At least Elrond is a respectable improvement.

I've started my cult and have already practised Miscavige-style "Shermanspeak". Observe:

Follow the path of true planetary enlightenment through Transcendelectricity. More to the point and in precision, only the doctrines of Transcendelectricity, first laid out by the visionary scientist, prophet, master chef and medium Alex K in 2017, directly lead to hitherto unprecedented brain improvement rates in test subjects across all cultures and perspectives, pointing in upwards-exploding directionality at an increase of by up to 1000% in not only national but furthermore worldwide comparison including Asia, Europe and Oceania, with infinite growth rate in January 2017 alone, making Transcendelectricity the fastest growing religion in planetary history.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is a God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Psalm 14, KJV revised edition
