Adam Gorightly, Andrew Greenberg Hilton Room 201
The Church of the SubGenius is an organization who parody religion, conspiracy theories and pop-culture in general. The church asserts that it was established in the 1950s by salesman J. R. “Bob” Dobbs. However, it actually began in 1979 upon release of a flyer. Upon publication, it quickly gained acclaim from groups in the underground culture with particular acceptance on college campuses. It later gained attention through the underground music scene and via the Internet.
