Ruckman Declares Himself to be "DOS 6.11-Only", Riplinger Writes Book on Subject

Pensacola, Fl - Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, the outspoken defender of the exclusivity of the King James Version of the Bible, declared in a recent article that DOS version 6.11 is "the only true and perfect operating system." In the article, which appeared in the March edition The Sword of Truth magazine, Dr. Ruckman was asked about which software he uses when he writes his books. Ruckman responded by saying,

"I exclusively use Word Star for DOS 6.11. The 6.11 version of DOS is pure and undefiled in every way. Take a look at today's new modern operating systems, and you'll clearly see that they are filled with errors and take away entire functions."

Ruckman, during the interview went on to say that all modern versions of operating systems are inventions of the "Alexandrian Cult," and utilize faulty programming languages.

"There's no need to reference all of these different programming languages" stated Ruckman. "Languages such as C, C+, Java, ABCL/1 and Agora, these are all tricks of Satan to deceive people about the truth and purity of DOS 6.11.

In a related story, TBNN discovered that upon the publication of the article, the controversial author of New Age Bible Versions, Gail A. Riplinger had already written a book on the subject of computer operating systems entitled New Age Operating System Versions. In Riplinger's 914 page book she claims to provide "indisputable proof" that modern operating systems are part of a New Age plot to destroy the purity of DOS 6.11. In the book Riplinger quotes from an interview with Microsoft founder Bill Gates where he says,

"Windows Vista...is...by far...poised...to take over...the world. We at Microsoft believe that...if people...will...just use...our...operating system...that we...will be able...to...turn...them to...the...dark...side."

Riplinger also goes on to demonstrate in her book through the use of multiple charts numerous "proofs of conspiracy" that she claims were "revealed by God" when she was writing the book. In one chart she uses something called "Acrostic Algebra" to show that modern operating systems are evil.

Ruckman went on to state that he also plans to write a book on the subject of operating system versions due out next week.

Note: Listen to this debate between Dr. James White and Gail Riplinger if you want more of a background on this post.

Well, I don't know about the only true operating system, but I'm pretty sure Vista is of the Devil.

DOS version 6.11 is "the only true and perfect operating system

You know... It's kinda hard to argue with that.

I'm glad you saved me the effort of posting the White/Riplinger debate.

Loved the post, especially Riplinger's "quote" from Gates.

I did have one problem, though.

Your description of Ruckman is "the outspoken defender of the exclusivity of the King James Version of the Bible".

While this is certainly true, I believe Ruckman takes it waaaay over the edge. Men like David Cloud also preach the superiority of (and thus exclusivity of) the KJV, but he goes and actually gives support for his position.

While I'm not in whole-hearted agreement with him, he certainly does more justice to his position than does Ruckman.

I'm not KJV-only, but I hate to see all KJV-preferred painted with the Ruckman brush. Just a thought.

Well, I have to be careful here at TBNN. Despite my personal feelings, as a member of the press I must remain objective and fair to all sides. =)


Lee Shelton said...

Another home run, TBNN! I do agree with Joe, however. Vista is of the devil, regurgitated right out of the bowels of hell.

I laughed until I "pissed against the wall."

heavyd... that was a great link too

Stefan Ewing said...

So being a DOS fan, I looked up "dos 6.11" (with the quotes) in Google to find out its history. This TBNN story came up #3 in the rankings already! (That Blogger is owned by Google evidently has some "membership advantages.")

My computer came preinstalled with Vista, but I've got everything set to the "Windows Classic" settings, with a shortcut in the Start Menu to the lowly command prompt....

If 640kB was good enough for Paul, it's good enough for me.

Strange how Pensacola seems a hotbed for this sort of thing, but then again you have Mount Zion church there, http://mountzion.org/, which widely distributes some fine Puritan and Reformed books (and holds to the Second London Baptist Confession).
By the way, I've begun alternating my KJV reading with ESV. Just so Tom feels more comfortable. Just kidding - I really like them both!

Veritas Valebit said...

Hey, I've been reading your posts for quite a long time, but I've never bothered to post a comment before.

Anyway, your posts are hilarious, and you make lots of good points. Keep up the good work!

I'd take Riplinger's acrostic algebra to be satire itself if I didn't know better, though I will admit it is somewhat clever.

Oh my gosh! They're onto something. Destroy the works of Vista (Greek for the feminine form of "Satan"), and I'll read and preach through my old KJV for a year.

You're clearly all mistaken on this issue. Here are the key things you need to understand about the Five-Letter OS Principle:


“Sight” (original Italian root) = Vision = False Prophecy (taking into account that a “Micro-” prophecy is a personal prophecy, which is usually false and therefore derives from demonic influences). The “Windows” part of the name reinforces the satanic promise of a “window” to a false prophecy. Satan is using this false operating system to create a one world government through which he can control the apostate churches and further undermine the AV of 1611. Presently the Beast controls more than 90% of the personal computer market.


The only true 5 lettered OS of which Vista is only a satanic counterfeit. Ubuntu Linux is the most inspired Linux distribution as “ubuntu” refers to hospitality and humanity to others, which is an important theme in the book of James. Vista, by contrast, only serves the greedy interests of the Beast of Redmond (whom all the computer users of the earth will “worship” by using their false OS – see Rev 13:8).

Seriously, when speaking at an apologetics conference in Ft. Lauderdale, I met a flaky lady in a Church of God who gave me an article she had written on the evils of Pokemon. It seems that "Pokemon" (whom the inventors say is a shortened version of "Pocket Monster") is actually short for "Poke (a) Man", a tempter. I was stunned by her revelation knowledge!

Oh Lance,

You're waaay off my friend. Linux is like Mormonism. It's a special little "club" to which only a few so-called "elite" belong (those who had enough free time on their hands to get the blasted thing to actually run).

You see, Linux is free, and so is the book of Mormon. And once you have Linux you're in. I bet Linux users even wear secret underwear and such.


latebloomer said...

Um, I'm not really allowed to talk about our sacred penguin underwear. Just go to the FARUS (Foundation for Ancient Research and Ubuntu Studies) website and they'll tell you why we're right and you're not. It's not really official, though, so you can't hold me to whatever they say.

Gail Riplinger books, videos & audio's contains multiple errors, lies, the majority of which are the gross misquoting of other people. In particular, a large portion of the misquoting is of the Bible, B.F. Wescott and F.J.A. Hort. See her divorces and marriages info.

The New Bible Translations are more correct than the old ones and just about everything Gail Riplinger says in her books, videos and audio's is a Lie. Please Don't be deceived by Gail Riplinger. Gail is slamming God's Holy Word in the new translations. For further info on Gail Riplinger please see:
