    Exclamation What is a TruthSmacker?

    TheologyOnLine.com is also known as TruthSmack.com. Many have asked... "what is a TruthSmacker"?

    "Truthsmacking" is the ability to create a artful, clever, brief, possibly humorous post or thread that delivers truth and rebuts falsehood all while entertaining the reader.


    TruthSmacking is not limited to the Christian, although I think it will be painfully obvious that non-believers will have a dramatically smaller arsenal of truth at their disposal.

    Can you offer what is and isn't TruthSmacking?

    For example, is Clete's thread: which would you rather - artful? Clever? Humorous? Does it it deliver any kind of truth and rebut all falsehood?
    "If you will think of ourselves as coming out of the earth,
    rather than having been thrown in here from somewhere else,
    you see that we are the earth,
    we are the consciousness of the earth.
    These are the eyes of the Earth.
    And this is the voice of the earth."

    Joseph Campbell

    And if you'd like some examples be sure to take a look at posts by Lion, Crow, Knight, Turbo and Clete. Not that there certainly aren't more as many are truly up and coming around here but these have perfected the art.

    Poly smacks with the best of them. I also think Lucky is a pretty good "smacker".

    Nineveh, Yorzik, One Eyed Jack also come to mind.

    Sozo is a great TurthSmacker.

    And just wait until Poly and Turbo return!

    Poly and Turbo are two of the other TOL admins who have been busy lately but they can smack with the best of them!

    Lucky is one of my personal favorites.

    Clete rocks.

    And I love reading BillyBob when he is smacking the commies.
