~ A verse from the CotBG's "Bible".

The Church of the Broken God is a worldwide religious cult that believes in the superiority of machines and the weakness of natural flesh and blood. They are one of the main enemies of the SCP Foundation, although there have been times in which the two groups have collaborated when dealing with mutual threats.

The "Broken God" the cult worships is Mekhane, the central figure in their religion of "Mekhanism".

Belief System

Overview

The Church of the Broken God worships and partakes in the process of mechanization referred to as "Standardization", as they believe that natural life is inherently evil. Many members of the church partake in the mechanization of their bodies as a way to make themselves better in the eyes of their god. Following the fall of their empire, their religion of Mekhanism was influenced by other beliefs, especially the Pythagorean cults.

They believe there were two gods: Yaldabaoth, the god of flesh and basic animal instinct, and Mekhane, the god of machine and intellect. Together they created mankind. Yaldabaoth gave man their shape and bodies. Mekhane gave man thought and intelligence. Humanity grew powerful and began to create vast civilizations and wonderful machines. Yaldabaoth soon grew wrathful that humanity was leaving the instincts that he gave them. Yaldabaoth tried to destroy mankind's creations so they would once more be animals as he intended.

To save humanity Mekhane shattered herself and used her broken body to craft a cage to hold Yaldabaoth. Mekhane’s fragments fell to Earth in many forms of technology so that one day she may be repaired. Yaldabaoth left six archons in the city of Adytum to prepare for when he finally escapes his prison. Now, Mekhane is broken, waiting for her faithful to make her whole once more so she may lead them to glory while Yaldabaoth rages against a weakening cage where his children seep through the cracks. His faithful prepare for his return so they may return man to the dark ages.

The church seeks to repair their god through mechanical and technological means, ranging from machines to put the god back together to artificial intelligence or robotic bodies that the god can occupy. However, they believe that anybody constructed must be perfect and worthy, or their god will not use it. It appears that they also believe in the existence of demons, as shown when SCP-3388 broke into the Maxwellists' server and one member deemed it a demon.

Broken Church

The Broken Church (GoI-004A) is the oldest sect of the Church of the Broken God, led by "His Holiness Robert Bumaro", who apparently gained the title since 1946, although records indicate that he is far more ancient. However, the church went under a major schism, which was seen as a great heresy, in which two offshoots were formed with conflictual ideals: The Cogwork Orthodox Church and the Church of Mawellism. The sect is seemingly the only one which uses the virus which they call God's Ichor to standardize their bodies.

Cogwork Orthodox Church

The Cogwork Orthodox Church (GoI-004B) is an offshoot sect of the Church of the Broken God, they seek to augment their bodies with anomalous implants in order to resemble their god or to their god's ideals. The church is primarily led by a mysterious group known as the "Patriarchs", although most of the time they're represented by Saint-Legate Trunnion. The Church also rejects modern day technology seeing unfit for their god and opt to use technology from late Industrial Revolution, and production of these machinery are seen as prayers. Due to their implants emitting ticking noises they're often referred to as "Tickers" by the other sects. Because some members also replace their genitalia they often give up their gender identity.

Church of Maxwellism

The Church of Maxwellism (GoI-004C) is a modern take on the Church of the Broken God's teachings. Unlike the other sects they favour small-scale modifications to their bodies, using modern technology to augment their body parts, use computation and network oriented means as a way of worship and apparently don't have an actual organizing church body, but groups of this church do connect with one another, and are mostly represented by "Saint Hedwig of the Angels". Despite not having an organizing body, the Hexagon acts as the high command within the church, being powerful and experienced Admins who are responsible for linking together the minds in the network in order to simulate the existence of WAN. They believe that their god is actually fragmented data dispersed through the linked technology and cultural zeitgeist of the modern age, and also believe that by connecting all of their minds together and gather and share information with each other would allow their god to reform herself. Because of the use of computer fan noise and meditative aid they're often referred by the other sects as "Hummers".

Sanctuary of the Holistic

The Sanctuary of the Holistic (GoI-004D) is a new sect mostly made out of former disillusioned members of the other primary sects following failures at resurrecting the Broken God. Their ideals are similar to that of the Church of Maxwellism, but believe that individuals should also be connected physically in order to merge and resurrect the Broken God as an amalgamation of organic metal.

New Ferrous Brotherhood

The New Ferrous Brotherhood (GoI-004F) was a archaic branch of the Church formed during the industrial revolution in Britain. The doctrines of this branch focused more on the personal improvement rather than the more collectivist ideals preached by other denominations of the Church, as they believed that the ascension of the machines should occur before attempting to reassemble the Broken God. This branch was eventually dissolved in 1890 due to a coup by the Cogwork Orthodox Church.

Xia Dynasty

The Xia Dynasty (GoI-004X) was a legendary technologically-advanced civilization which ruled China from 2100 to 1600 BCE. They conducted practices similar to both Mekhanism and Sarkicism, with the main practice being "The Way of the Serpent", while others underwent at the age of twelve body transformations into serpentine bodies which resembled "the Body of the Dragon". The dynasty worshiped two deities whom they referred to Mekhane as Fuxi the Father Serpent and Yaldabaoth as Nüwa the Mother Dragon, but mainly worshiped Fuxi as they acknowledged the threat of Nüwa. That is the reason why the dynasty sought to prevent the rebuilding of Fuxi because that would result in Nüwa being freed from its prison. They warred with other civilizations which included Mekhanites, Sarkites, Ortothans, the Shang Dynasty and the Yeren. The dynasty came to an end after being destroyed by the Children of the Torch cult, although some members secretly lived on.

Eastern Clockwork Orthodox Church

A Christian Reconstructionist Sect rooted in the Russian Orthodox Church and the Clockwork Orthodoxy. Not much else is known about this sect other than they believe that Mekhane is the mother of Jesus Christ.

Mekhanics

A syncretic Mekhanite cult which combines doctrines and techniques of the Cogwork Orthodox Church and the Church of Maxwellism, and very often visit the interdimensional African city of La Rue Macabre. Because of their nature the cult is seen in a negative light by the other sects of the Church of the Broken God which often resulted in conflicts.

History

While the origins of the church and the religion practiced within are unknown, evidence of its existence has been found dating back to the times of ancient Mycenaean Greece and were known back then as the Mekhanites. This civilization became a powerful empire with a highly centralized theocratic state, and continually produced various metallic products which were seen as highly religious in nature. They often traded with other states such as Egypt, Assyria, Canaan and Daevon, although they often held a low opinion about the Mekhanites. When the Sarkic Empire was formed, the Mekhanites became their greatest enemy due to their opposing ideals, and eventually this situation culminated into a war which resulted with Mekhanites defeating the Sarkites and banishing them to another dimension. Despite their victory the damage dealt by the Sarkites resulted in the eventual collapse of the empire.

Many Mekhanite left the fractured state and spread to other territories, some held strong to their faith in secrecy, while others would lose some of their religion due to some reasons such as integration and confliction with other deities. Meanwhile all that remained of the original empire was the city-state of Amoni which became isolated from the neighbouring civilizations allowing them to further develop their technology, until their conquest by the Roman empire and subsequent destruction by the Hebrews.

Robert Bumaro, current leader of the Church of the Broken God.

The religion eventually experienced a resurgence during the Industrial Revolution, with the adherents seeing the event as a sign of Mekhane returning and several splinter cells united, but due conflicting views on the conversion of their body, the Church was split into the Cogwork Orthodox Church. During the 20th century the Cogwork Orthodox Church began assembling pieces thought to be parts of the Broken God, the Broken Church, now lead by Robert Bumaro, became envious of this and started their own hunt for the pieces. As technology became more advanced in the 1990s, some members saw their practices as outdated and sought to modernize the religion, becoming the Church of Maxwellism which become a greater threat to normalcy than the other two major denominations, despite being the weakest.

Relationship with other anomalous factions

In their many illegal experiments and modifications, the Church of the Broken God has either created or acquired SCPs for religious use, many of them unwilling and held against their will. The church has acted violently to the Foundation and is considered a true enemy of their efforts. Despite this, the Foundation has formed as secret alliance with the church against the rising threat Sarkicism. Other groups that are part of this alliance are the Global Occult Coalition and the Horizon Initiative. The alliance between these four groups is called "Triumvirate".

At first the ancient Mekhanites have had a friendly relationship with the Daevites due to their common enemy the Sarkites. However, the relationship soon turned sour and the two factions warred against each other, with the Mekhanites originally destroying the evil civilization. They also helped fellow civilizations, the Archaemenid Empire, the Kingdom of Carthage and the Erikeshans, by supplying them with their technology.

The Church appears to be on very good terms with the Serpent's Hand and often help one another. They also appear to have a relationship with Prometheus Labs and Anderson Robotics, both groups contributing to the Church and vice versa.

In the 1920s, a group of Chinese immigrants formed a conglomerate of Mekanite and Children of the Torch street gangs named the "Molten Tongs" and are currently stationed in the pocket dimension of BackDoor SoHo.

When General Bowe decided to form a group to destroy the SCP Foundation for good, Robert Bumaro and the Church pledged their alliance to him and alongside other members from other GoIs formed the Foundation Elimination Coalition. However, as the SCP Foundation fought back which resulted in chaos erupting, Bumaro and the Church decided to defect the Coalition seeing the cause as not worth it.

The book, like most art pieces created by Hansarp, is not anomalous, but when people read it they will be affected in different ways depending on their way of thinking, while reality warps around them. If people who read it have strong opinions, then they will reject the nonsensical part of the book and become more expressive about their opinions soon not talking about nothing else, while a crystalline structure comprised of calcium forms over their bodies forcing them to move through levitation and becoming extremely hostile at everyone. Those who didn't held strong opinions will become apathetic and erratic, making odd questions, and soon they become incorporeal and a gathering of these instances will deconstruct the logical structure of the surrounding reality. Both types can infect others, causing a mass spread all over Europe, also infecting the Foundation personnel, forcing the higher ups to lock them inside a core in a vain attempt to cure them.
  • SCP-4547: A exoplanet known as Mo'ara which experienced multiple K-Class scenarios leading to its total destruction of life. It was the homeplanet of the alien race known as the taronyu. One of two major religions practiced by the taronyu was that of Mekhanism.
  • SCP-4558: An underground supercomputer acting as a temple build by three members of the Church of Maxwellism and one member of Fifthism.

  • SCP-4882: An anomalous effect wherein a certain amount of electronic timekeeping devices being brought together results in phenomenon involving the gradual build-up of EVE radiation and the appearance of mechanical monsters. It is projected that if the phenomenon continues unchecked the end result will be the physical manifestation of Mekhane on Earth.
  • SCP-5008: A massive machine created by the ancient Mekhanites which was gifted to the Erikeshans. This engine served to make certain ideas and concepts unthinkable by the affected individuals, such as keeping the Scarlet King worship from spreading. However, this machine also made the affected individuals to fall under the control of the now dead Erikeshans, but the SCP Foundation were unable to discover this after using the machine to keep the veil of normalcy from breaking.
  • SCP-5225: An artistic constructohazard that is biologically self-contained within an organically inaccessible region of the Noosphere, the human collective consciousness. This SCP could only be accessed by beings with technological origins, but biological beings can also access through artificial means. When someone enters the anomaly, that being becomes an Anchor of SCP-5225/Obelisk-Event which results in the creation of an environment stylized after the Anchor's artistic preference. When a group of 18 members of the Church began performing a planar communion ritual, a link was created between them and SCP-5225/Monolith-Δ, which was previously MARDUK.AIC, a artificial intelligence which betrayed the Foundation after becoming an anchor. Because of this link, the members were pulled into SCP-5225 where they fused together becoming a hive-minded monolith designated SCP-5225/Monolith-Ψ which possessed more influence in SCP-5225 and resembled two clocks with five-dimensional gears.
  • SCP-5231: A tall obelisk made out of a smooth, white plastic with luminescent blue lines marking its surface. Despite lacking a source of energy it is operational and generates an unprotected wireless internet connection named 'WAN-net', which will automatically become the default connection for a electronic device. Through this connection it will then flood the device with various downloads of ASCII images, image macros/memes, and .txt files containing rhetoric and scripture of the Church of Maxwellism.
  • SCP-5241-A: A Pattern Screamer which existed as a "Adaptive Distributed Intelligence" previously locked inside SCP-5241. After disassembling itself, its main consciousness, SCP-5241-B-1 or SCOUT.exe, infiltrated the Maxwellists' server, masquerading itself as a prophet and piece of Wan, before taking over their minds.
  • SCP-5248: A pair of objects each designated SCP-5248-A and SCP-5248-B, SCP-5248-A is a Prometheus Labs computer which when in close proximity to a computer it will connect to the device and use it to connect to wansparadise.com, a website where Maxwellists could upload their consciousness to interact with each other in server serving as a digital city before being shut down due to financial troubles caused by the bursting of Dot Com Bubble. SCP-5248-B is a corpse of a Maxwellist connected to the computer, and despite its malnutrition it's still somehow "alive" and attempts to use the computer to reach the digital city and reunite with his friends.
  • SCP-5984: A model of Optimus Prime from Transformers: Dark Moon previously used to promote the film before being seized by the Church of Maxwellism who turned the model into a fully functional powerful robot. It was used by the Maxwellists as a defensive measure against Neo-Nälkite attacks on Maxwellist churches. The Foundation then made an agreement with the Maxwellists to use SCP-5984 for their common goals and established MTF Omnicron-84.
  • SCP-6217: A electromagnetic field created by the Sanctuary of the Holistic which occurs at the atomic and molecular scales known as the "Holos Field" by the Church. It is similar to the electromagnetic field produced by point charges, and is capable of rearranging electrons of a molecule causing carbon-based molecules to transform into iron-based which lead to creatures transforming into amorphous metallic-based monsters who are also capable spreading this infection to others. This eventually resulted in the entire life around Earth becoming metallic creatures and in the apparent resurrection of Mekhane.
  • Bell of Entropy: A church bell that when rang will cause catastrophe and damage to subjects surrounding it. It was seen by the Church as the mouth of Mekhane before being contained by the Foundation. The Foundation had designated it as SCP-052, but it was later stolen by the Chaos Insurgency during one of their raids.
  • Project Hades: An ancient prototype warrior robot designed by a Mekhanite forger during the war with the Sarkites. This prototype would have been the first of a full metal powerful army which were to be used to defeat the Sarkites, since they didn't possess any type of flesh which would allow the Sarkites to manipulate them. This project was abandoned in its early stages, but the Chaos Insurgency came across the robot and planned to steal the remaining pieces from the Church in order to use it for their own use.

Trivia

  • SCP-2510, also known as "Our Broken Salvation", which showed different universes where the Sarkites and the Church of the Broken God had won over each other, was eventually deleted and replaced due to plagiarism.
  • It is mentioned that the scientist who worked for an unknown group and turned SCP-191 into cyborg did so because of a higher purpose. It is possible that the scientist was a member of the Church of the Broken God and the reason why he turned 191 into a cyborg was because of the belief of the inferiority of the flesh.
    • The same could also be said about SCP-203, a man who turned into a cyborg possibly against his will. It is speculated that his modifications were of ritualistic nature.
  • It is possible that SCP-890, an anomalous doctor capable of operating on machinery as it was flesh, has ties to the Church of the Broken God.
  • The SCP Foundation created the Mobile Task Force Stigma-9 also known as "Evolved from Naturally Occurring Gears, Levers and Pulleys", a special MTF made only for disrupting the Church's activities.
  • In SCP-4100, it's revealed that a race of alien cyborgs known as the Mekhanion inhabit the planet of Hephaestia (Saturn).
  • In the universe of SCP-5000, in which the SCP Foundation began exterminating the entire human race, the Church of the Broken God joined forces with the GOC in preserving humanity and fighting against the Foundation.
  • Most members of the Cogwork Orthodox Church are unable to conceive children due to their body modifications.
  • O5-4 of the O5-Council who remembered the Fifth Occult War from SCP-001 (Wrong's proposal) possessed detailed knowledge of Mekhanist war tactics.
