So my thread of the day is BROWN, which one is Browner than the rest of the Brownies, all have that extra edge about them. One is a writer that says Christianity is a hidden lie, one is an illusionist that says religion is an illusion and the other is a Leader who likes to give out illusions’ that all is well i government, ha-ha that was just a pun. But one is a leader of Great Britain and deals with worldly affairs. Which one is Brower and has the most impact short term long term, in the media or each other?


Dan Brown (born June 22, 1964) is an American author of thriller fiction, best known for the 2003 bestselling novel, The Da Vinci Code. Brown's novels, which are treasure hunts set in a 24-hour time period,[1] feature the recurring themes of cryptography, keys, symbols, codes, and conspiracy theories. His books have been translated into over 40 languages, and as of 2009, sold over 80 million copies.

Brown's novels that feature the lead character Robert Langdon also include historical themes and Christianity as recurring motifs, and as a result, have generated controversy. Brown states on his website that his books are not anti-Christian, though he is on a 'constant spiritual journey' himself, and says of his book The Da Vinci Code that it is simply "an entertaining story that promotes spiritual discussion and debate" and suggests that the book may be used "as a positive catalyst for introspection and exploration of our faith".[


James Gordon Brown (born 20 February 1951) is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Labour Party. Brown became Prime Minister in June 2007, after the resignation of Tony Blair and three days after becoming leader of the governing Labour Party. Immediately before this he had served as Chancellor of the Exchequer in the Labour government from 1997 to 2007 under Tony Blair.

Brown has a PhD in history from the University of Edinburgh and spent his early career working as a television journalist.[3][4] He has been a Member of Parliament since 1983; first for Dunfermline East and since 2005 for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath.[5][6] As Prime Minister, he also holds the offices of First Lord of the Treasury and the Minister for the Civil Service.


Derren Victor Brown (born 27 February 1971) is an English magician, illusionist, mentalist, painter and sceptic. He was born in Croydon, South London, educated at Whitgift School, where his father coached swimming,[1] and studied Law and German[2] at the University of Bristol.[3] While there, he attended a show by the hypnotist Martin Taylor, which inspired him to turn to illusion and hypnosis as a career.[4] Whilst an undergraduate, he started working as a conjuror, practising the traditional skills of close-up magic. In 1992, he started performing stage hypnosis shows at the University of Bristol under the stage name Darren V. Brown.[5]

Brown has also given performances relating to mind-reading.[6] Shortly after, he was commissioned to do a pilot for his Channel 4 television series, Mind Control. Much of his work is written in collaboration with Andy Nyman.

So what do people think of the Browns lately in our media, all have a different influence, even ATS is brown and boarder black when we write.

So you have Gordon Brown the prime minister of the UK, his dad is a preacher but he is a sceptic and bends backwards for Muslims, even if it’s for Libya or the Sharia banks and extra prayer rooms. Anti-Christian in the making, opens doors to his coming sinful nature that will boarder lunacy?

Dan Brown the author of many books that tell the story how the Vatican and the church is fake underneath by some secret revelation and code, but many fell for it and believed the books as being real. Maybe he thought his theories were real once but retracted once he was blown out of the water with true facts.

Derren Brown the psychological illusionist who can twist the way you think and your body behaves while watching TV. Does not believe in religion, has used the devil on his shoulder in one of his book covers, maybe he has a second voice telling him what to do, but does not have worldly influence which is okay for some so far.

Mirror mirror on the wall, which is brownest of them all, don’t mention Barrack Obama either that’s racism, his name is Obama nothing else.
I let you decide, take it as funny or if you like get some meaty opinions.

Disclaimer: I'm a theist but not of the Abrahamic faiths. I have minor biblical scholar and scriptural skills. Also I am not a scientific/legal or medical expert in any field. Beware of my Contagious Memes! & watch out that you don't get cut on my Occams razor.All of this is my personal conjecture and should not be considered the absolute or most definitive state of things as they really are. Use this information at your own risk! I accept no liability if your ideology comes crashing down around you with accompanying consequences.

Explanation: IMO all 3 of them are disingenuous on many levels and so instead of bashing them I instead offer another Dan Brown [YouTube pogobat] to the mix.

Personal Disclosure: I just recently came across this bloke whilst searching for the Kanye/Swift debarcle of 09! He made me laugh and think and his presentation was awesome!

P.S. any more Browns and BTS will brown out!

I don't have a real problem with the Brown's I was just trying to pick their faults and religion was the consistant factor at hand. But is there an unholy trinity of the Brown's.

One the political figure, has the power of law at hand.

The other a writer of false religious views brings confusion and doubt.

Another an illustionist that says it's all a lie and in your head and if be has the power to influence your thoughts.

Is there a curse of the Browns, is the name an Oman, do they have some type of genetic link, are they related some where?

Also you may have gathered I can not spell and it's Gordon not Gordan as in the spelling of his name.

I wonder if the Brown's teamed up as the Brown team what effect they could have on the world,
but I doubt that would ever happen.

I guess I just made this thread for names sake, with a bit of humour attached to it and to be honest it never really took off as a thread with many replies, I wonder if that has something to do with it being BTS and not ATS.

Meaning of the name Brow and why we have so many browns lately.

Brown is a surname of English, Irish, and Scottish origin. It also originates independently in the United States, as an Anglicization of several other surnames. Brown is one of the most common family names in English-speaking countries. According to the 1990 United States Census, Brown is the fifth most common family name in the United States at 0.621% of the sample population, essentially identical in frequency to Jones.

Etymology and history of the surname
When the surname is of English, Irish and Scottish origins it is derived from a nickname concerning the complexion of an individual, or the colour of their hair. This nickname is derived from the Old English brun, brūn; Middle English brun, broun; or Old French brun.[2][3] The root word is also sometimes found in Old English and Old Norse bynames,[3] such as the Old Norse Brúnn; however these names were not common after the Norman Conquest (in 1066).[2] In some cases, the Old English personal name Brun may be a short form of one of several compound names, such as Brungar and Brunwine.[3] Early recordings of the English name/surname are: Brun, Brunus in 1066; Conan filius Brun in 1209; Richard Brun, le Brun le mercer in 1111–38; William le Brun in 1169; William Brun 1182–1205; Hugh Bron in 1274; Agnes Broun in 1296; and John le Browne in 1318.[2]
