[chuck]So given the amount of questioning going on about the source of our Hate Mail #2 and similarities in tone, content, and concerns with the E4F debate and particularly Kirk Hastings’ various emails, I followed the advice of one of our posters and checked the headers:

Now, I’m not a techie, but those originating IPs look exactly the same to me. Anyone in the know care to expound on exactly what that means?

PS: The IP address traces to … New Jersey, headquarters of Evidence 4 Faith.

UPDATE: Lying hypocritical Christian Kirk Hastings of Evidence 4 Faith has admitted his sock-puppetry in an email reply to one of our posters, copied to us (the header of that email exactly matches the headers of the previous two). I’m going to give Kirk the benefit of the doubt and assume that this behavior is the absolute bottom of the barrel for him. Given past history, though, I will not be surprised if it isn’t.

    How embarrassing..
    On another note, remember when chuck and Leighton used to do ANN.
    To podcasts a week… sigh…

  2. DudleyDietrich says:

    Am I doing it right, Kirk?

  3. Matthew, Apostle of Christ & Gospel Writer, D.Irr says:

    @David LMAO love the subtle undertones

  4. i just love that he’s so paranoid about himself that he checks THIS message board frequently to find out what crap is being said about him.

  5. Leela, ANN was quite shitty. If I have to listen to crappy podcasts, I prefer it if they are spaced out in time.

  6. cjovalle says:

    Ooh, I think ANN needs a resurrection for Ptah- perhaps even a fan driven version.

  7. I thought that was what T2L was for.

  8. Ironic Name says:

    Have you checked the other hate mail’s IP address?

    And Kirk, next time use a proxy. That way it won’t be some painfully obvious.

  9. Ptah, I just imagine you’d be pleased with another such effort. ^_^

  10. I’ll do it myself if I can find a speech synthesiser with a spech impediment and connect it to a random text generator.

  11. Peter pan says:

    Do you still make podcasts? Lazy fuckers!

  12. Chuck, I’ll post the entire thing in the forums so all can read. If that’s desirable, that is. It’s really, really long (mostly my fault on that front; you know Christians don’t like to read or write all that much). Skim my replies quickly (not much new there) and you’ll see Kirk’s gems.

  13. @empbac – Is Irreligiosophy Syndrome similar to the T-Virus?

  14. Discord.agent says:

    I hate to sound like I’m defending Kirk Hastings, but the real King O’ the Douches from E4F is Keith Kendrex. Kirk may get his ruffled panties into a twist at the slightest of jabs but at least he has the testicular fortitude to respond (even if he does so under another identity). Over six months ago I sent an email to E4F (Keith Kendrex specifically) and a week later he responded with “Sorry for the delay in responding. I hope to get back to you next week.” I’m still waiting for that response. Oddly enough, while Kendrex has not had enough time to respond to my email he (and his E4F comrades) did find to the time “destroy” my arguments on their show while I was not there to defend them or challenge their’s.

    These bozos are just mad because they have a shit podcast and people have expressed as much in the ITunes ratings and comments. They can go hump the neighbor”s dog and shut the fuck up.

  16. ironlungz says:

    I think Kirk Hastings is the secret identity of Batman and Robin. Both of them have one secret identity – E4F podcaster.
    If Power Rangers can do it WHY Kirk can’t? You should totally make podcast dedicated to Kirk and E4F.

    Osama is a poo head.

  18. Moewicus says:

    Wair’s mah podcast. Give podcast. Podcast nao.

    But seriously, Chuck said you guys were recording last thursday. What gives? Is this the new schedule finally being implemented?

  19. New podcast will go up Tuesday, Mormon Standard Time.

  20. Chuck and Leighton? On a schedule? Surely you jest…

  21. You’ve gotta love this:

    Kirk Hastings book: What is the Truth?

    If he has to write an entire book trying to figure it out, it’s no wonder he has such a shaky grasp of it.

  22. BigIdeaSeeker says:

    I haven’t read all these posts, but did anyone notice that if you google Grant Gardner you find out that he is the attorney who, in a moment of need, becomes Captain America? Further, if you google Kirk Hastings there’s a link to something about “the second Captain Marvel/Shazam.” I didn’t read the whole page to see where the name Hastings comes in, but it’s of interest.
