CMMI Champions: The New Mystics

April 21, 2010

The Champions have been crowned

The New Mystics

The New Mystics were the Butler University of this tournament with four monumental upsets. However, unlike Butler they were able to triumph in the finals taking down heavy favorite The Goog aka “Cancer Pastor”.

Round one: vs Rappin’ Pastor

Quarter-finals: vs Holy Ghost Hokey Pokey

Semi-Finals: vs Crazy Julie

Championship: Cancer Pastor

There’s a lot of crazy in Christianity, but no one does insanity and madness quite like the New Mystics!

Here’s some videos you haven’t even seen yet. Yeah, they definitely deserve this title!

Crazy… absolutely crazy.

    The Cinderalla of Christian Insanity — that is no easy task.

    Does anyone know if these types of phenomena have actually been studied (in terms of the Psychological and Physiological elements going on)?

    These guys are first class nuts – but I’m disappointed to see them do the old glory dust scam – makes me think that they aren’t the innocent crazies that I first thought. (i.e. there might be some method to their madness – tossing out glitter or glycerin . . . )

    brgulker, (can I call you Gulky for short? Great.)

    Gulky,

    There’s a whole world of psychological study and mountains of work done on religious experience, Neurotheology, Genetics and Transpersonal Psychology! Now, I’m a bit biasd because I work in a related field, but I think it’s one of the most exciting realms of study and research out there right now and some of the findings, particularly in Neuropsychology are fantastic.

    William James was the pioneer in the field and his treatise, “Varieties of Religious Experience” was kind of the jumping off point for the entire field. If you’re interested in it at all, read any of Norman Habel’s works or Neurotheologist Andrew B Newberg.

    However, to whet your appetite, here’s a little taste of my all time favourite study ever done on any sort of human behaviour, the Marsh Chapel Experiment: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marsh_Chapel_Experiment

    And an account of one of the participants of the experiment that’s rather interesting: http://csp.org/practices/entheogens/docs/young-good_friday.html

    Not really a fan of psychology, but physiologically I can say this group of characters seem oddly adept at foisting their forced state of exuberance onto those around them.

    Yes, I’m saying their midichlorion counts are probably very high…

      “Not really a fan of psychology”

      You’re more of a Scientology guy then hmm? That’s cool. I think Xenu and Tom Cruise have some pretty solid alternative theories to the mountains of scientific research and decades of discovery given to the world by something that’s not designed to take people’s money…😉

        Jake, I simply meant that personally I dislike (read: am not good at) the subject of psychology, not that I think it’s a bogus topic.

        You twat.

        Looooooove you!

        Jake has obviously been taken over by Thetans…

    I’ve got to say – I reckon this Australian “drunken glory guy” possibly pips the New Mystics.

    But I like these (found them via your end of year wrap up, having only come to the Scotteriology party yesterday).
