I don’t care about what you believe. I don’t want to hear about it and I certainly don’t want to deal with it when I’m in the gym. Religion is a touchy subject (what with it causing most wars and shit). Working out is not. Keeping that shit separate (outside of your mind) would do everyone a great service. CrossFit Central owner and co-creator of SICFIT, Jeremy Thiel, isn’t interested in that recommendation:
The above image is real and you can find it over at Thiel’s blog. I have several sources that told me he named SICFIT after the acronym “Strength In Christ.” Lulz. Anyway, his blog actually predates RX Star, and it appears they might have taken some inspiration from him:
“Love was now an ACT of WAR.” I don’t know, that’s either the most overdramatic pussy shit I’ve ever heard, or it just sounds like another dipshit who’s never been in combat misusing ‘war’. Back to religion and fitness:
Ew. Fuck no. That’s not what I was talking about. WWJD? Pretty sure he wouldn’t be making it rain for either of those busted cougaz. More specifically, I was talking about religion and CrossFit:
Wait, what? God Damn it. Not that either. That appears to be some knock-off that HQ hasn’t caught yet(?) I was talking more along the lines of this:
That’s CrossFit Born Again in Fayetteville, Arkansas; where everybody is somebody, but Jesus is Lord! If a business owner decides to glorify their chosen deity and their venture becomes a success, good on ’em. I just don’t want anything to do with it. That shit weirds me out. Kinda like this:
Bible Study, 3-2-1-go! STFU. Does everything in CrossFit have to be a fucking “WOD”? I wish someone would start ShitWOD so we can all post pics of our Type-4’s to comments.
Imagine if people posted pics of their shit to facebook. I’m just as interested in seeing pictures of human feces as I am in seeing pictures of paleo dishes people have made. So, facebook would essentially go full circle with regards to the digestive cycle. There appears to be a common theme among those who are very religious and those who eat paleo: they just can’t seem to shut the fuck up about it. A couple weeks ago, someone who is very religious and doesn’t eat paleo displayed their reasoning on Twitter:
The irony here is fucking beautiful. The face of the CrossFit Games is very true to his belief in Christianity while the creator of CrossFit, Greg Glassman, is rumored to be a staunch atheist. When I first realized that, I was all:
But it set in and then I was all:
Besides, I thought it was common knowledge that Jesus was a bodybuilder?
Anyway, I don’t claim to know everything, but I do know science is fucking awesome. It tells my brain smart shit. I rely on scientists to figure out things on which I can base many decisions. When making nutrition decisions, I do so under the guidance of something other than a book that was written before humanity had cracked the code on the earth not being flat.
I contacted God on facebook in order to solicit his opinion on the whole thing. He never responded. It appears he’s too busy duking it out with Science:
I’m not anti-religion, I just don’t feel like dealing with it in the gym. End of story. For any religious folks who may have been angered by this Beastmodal Domains post, please seek comfort in this:
Or just post your hate to comments and tell me how much of an asshole I am. It’ll really shock me since I’ve never heard that one before.
If any of you really want to know what I think, watch this:
