Who is Kim Fabricius?

Kim’s posts here always attract a lot of attention, and I occasionally get emails asking: “Who is this Kim Fabricius person, anyway?” To answer that question, I’ve just expanded this page with a picture of Kim and some info about his background. And stay tuned for more of his provocative “propositions” soon....

Ben, thank you. I just learned how to spell his name correctly this afternoon despite it being spelled the same way in every post and comment. Should I just assume an affinity for the Yankees?

Hi Brandon,

I don't like you. Your geography is all wrong. The devil lives in the Bronx; angels fly at Shea.

Brandon Jones said...

Kim, my apologies. We can at least agree on where the devil lives. My beloved Royals used to be rivals with the Bronx bombers before my time, but lately they've been a farm club for the real big league teams.

I hope you appreciate Carlos Beltran, we miss him in KC.

Thanks Ben and Kim. It's nice to know who you're talking to.

Oh, and I think it's pretty great to have been converted reading Karl Barth:)

This could, of course, still be a clever ruse to confound the Kim-is-Ben theory. Think about it: if Ben were to create an alter ego, wouldn't it be the obvious choice to have him converted reading Barth? Conspiracy theories never die, they just get more complicated.

Yeah, Byron, but Ben wouldn't know a baseball if one beaned him! Besides, "Photo, ergo sum"!

Ben Myers said...

Baseball? Oh yeah, I think I've heard of it: isn't it a version of cricket in which the bowler uses a funny big white ball?

This whole "Kim" is Ben theory could easily be scotched if someone came forward and said that they've seen K & B in the same room. I issued this challenge a few weeks ago. No one has come forward yet... Now, what does that tell you?

Thinking about it, "K" & "B" = Karl Barth. I think that Byron is on to something with the Barth connection. Ben also let slip when he did 10 props on Warfield under his own name the other day. Forgot to be "Kim" did we? Admit it Dr Myres, you'be been rumbled.

A picture of Kim and Ben in one spot wouldn't do in the age of photo-shop, huh? Good photo, though. I always appreciate putting face to names.

Now, Ben, I'll side with the rest of the world against my homeland and admit that soccer should have dibs on the name "football." I'll even agree that rugby is the tougher sport. But I go with baseball over cricket. The superiority of baseball over cricket is proven by the way that no one makes movies like Field of Dreams, The Natural, or Bull Durham about cricket.

Unfortunately, I am an Atlanta Braves fan--which in recent years is almost as hard as being a Chicago Cubs fan! Almost.

Since Bonhoeffer is one of Kim's favorite theologians, how 'bout if he does a "For the love of God" profile on him? Bonhoeffer is oddly missing from your list of theologians.

Photo, ergo sum
I am phosphorescent, therefore I am...
I have a digital camera, therefore I am...

Perhaps more accurately (as MWW points out): Photoshop, ergo sum.
