If you think that Starting Strength is the single best training program for beginners you are part of the Rippetoe cult
If you think that split routines are not effective you are part of the Rippetoe cult.
If you think that squats and deadlifs build big arms you are part of the Rippetoe cult
I liked these gems. I've ran into d-bags on various forums that will argue these three things with you until they are blue in the face. To them these are written in stone tablets handed down by god.
OP: What is a good routine for beginners
Level Headed Posters: there are are a few options....(goes on to list some reasonable options)

OP: What should I do for bigger biceps?
Level Headed Poster: You should try doing 6-9 sets of a curls or curls variants a week..(goes on to give more explanation)
Rippetoe Cult: You should squat!! Squats build big biceps!! Curls are for pussies!!!!!!!!
