I also particularly liked #19:

A NASA astronaut is stranded on Mars. Every Christian on earth comments, “Praying!” on NASA’s Facebook post announcing the dire situation, but no one actually prays for him or sends help. He dies after running out of Martian-grown potatoes.

        “But it’ll be ok, won’t it, Peter?”

    A Jewish peasant on the outskirts of Jerusalem in 70 AD discovers an ancient portal covered with a strange mix of Babylonian and Egyptian glyphs. The portal whisks him to 1907 where he explains to a spellbound C. I. Scofield that the sacking of Jerusalem was actually pretty terrible, using imagery that had not yet appeared in the Gospel of Luke.

    In a sequel to Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code movie, the ending is somewhat anticlimactic because while a DNA test on Sophie Neveu and the remains of Mary Magdalene shows Neveu is related to Mary Magdalene, Prof Robert Langdon (a symbologist professor at Harvard who doesn’t know any ancient languages) makes the somewhat obvious observation that this does nothing to show Neveu is related to Jesus.

      What would make the story significantly different from Michael Moorcock’s “Behold The Man” – or would this just be a Christian version of that?

    A seminary students is told by his professor to look up the original source for a claim in a certain footnote. Little did he know that this was the beginning of a 5 year long search, full of dead ends, circular references and books that don’t seem to exist. The student never finds the original source and is expelled for some obscure violation of the seminary’s statement of faith.

      That sounds like my experience that led to my writing this article (accept, again, for the seminary context and distinctive Evangelical aspects): http://digitalcommons.butler.edu/facsch_papers/16/

    I’m assuming that first sentance was sarcasasm ? Isn’t satire supposed to be self aware humor ? If so, then Adam Ford and his comics fail in both regards.
