So the answer to your question "how christ would be the most powerful" lies in HOW you measure POWER. When I measure the POWER of an audio signal I am generally referring to its AMPLITUDE. in other words, how fucking LOUD is it? a common, yet crude method of measuring how loud a noise is, would be to determine how far away it can be heard. So when you have a person like Jesus Fucking Christ, whose voice has been "heard" echoing throughout history for well over 2000 years, by people all over the world, you can say that from a noise-making perspective, the man was pretty fucking powerful.

Although you can certainly argue that his original output signal was probably quite weak. However, that original signal convinced those who originally heard it to repeat the signal which in turn was repeated by the next people to hear it, and so on until it was amplified to its present volume. Of course, the original signal has been subject to distortion in the amplification process, just like any audio signal can get distorted when sent through a series of imperfect amplifiers. Its also been subject to echo, delay, flanger, ring modulation, and who knows what other effects throughout time.

I submit to you that Jesus Christ is the most powerful noise album ever.

diode Ring modulation is a process where one signal is smushed together with another "carrier" signal. I think this applies to a lot of televangelists, using Jesus's message as a "carrier signal" for their own message of "send me money"

From Wikipedia:

"Chuck Norris is a devout Christian and politically conservative. He has written several books on Christianity"

weird metaphor.


anyway it was my question - and what you are saying is not what i meant.
besides which, i am skeptical that someone who claims to be omnipotent could be very powerful for very long hehe.

if i wrote a book that no one read and then after i died a bunch of people kill each other over it, "I" am not personally powerful at all which is what Clemon was asking about. my book, or my ideas, or what was made of my ideas might be powerful, but not me as an individual.

of course i see your point, and you are right, my "sonic view" of powerful is NOT what clemon intended with his question.
But I'm going to disagree anyway, because it pleases me to do so. I think we should really look at the effect that one person's life had on the rest of humanity as a measure of true "power". Also, Jesus did not write any books, so far as I know; the people who witnessed his spectacle wrote the books, and from those books amplification of the original person's message ensued. Personally, I would prefer to affect the lives of many billions of people long after I am dead than have control over a few million whilst I live. (If I could do both that would be great though) I think Donkey Kong Country was an awesome game, and I would enjoy exploring different ideas as to what "Power" really means? Either way, I hate to think that Hitler was really the most powerful man ever. I'm pretty certain others have had a higher kill rate, I'm pretty sure others have successfully ruled larger areas, and I'm pretty sure others have had greater powers of destruction at their command. It all depends on how you measure "power". I like to think of Hitler as the Britney Spears of Evil; sure he's super popular with the press, but others have sold more albums, and what real power did he actually posess? Could the fucker even dance? He's just the poster boy for evil. Fuck Hitler.

well this isn't entirely fair; the Nazis "used" a lot of ideas but anyone who gives an honest look at Nietzsche's ideas can see that they're incompatible since he hates both nationalism and racism/anti-semitism. Bataille wrote a lot about this subject in the Acephale journal

of course that's also why it's completely braindead stupid to blame Christianity for nazism or anything else
I'm aware of the two sides to interpretation of Nietzsche - his ideas in particular - were used by the Nazis despite his disdain for nationalism. Perhaps his disdain was for everyone other than himself, well no - he admired great men - Napoleon, but not their cause or followers… (the herd) and I think he would have admired Hitler - but not national socialism. But that is mere conjecture. The problem with Nietzsche like Kierkegaard was their importance to existentialism yet the theism of the one and the disdain for the herd in the other. Hard to match with an existentialism which was Marxist…

And - also the power of the human voice is in getting others to repeat it. (I hate the meme theory..) but might it not be that no person is powerful - just that the message is transmitted … as for individuals I think in the main they transmit and modify. Given points in history things occur from a society- so the airplane would exist without the Wright Bothers, Marxism without Marx and Relativity without Einstein. We just like to select individuals. If you think about it a truly individual thought or art work would be incomprehensible to the rest of us - and so ignored. Although certain figures I recon are of profound importance generally are ignored - Gödel and Cantor for instance. The consequences of the incompleteness problem leave most people cold - yet the idea of the whole of physics being undermined seems to me quite significant. I know of maths lecturers who cant take Cantor's hierarchy of infinities…
