Comments are disabled for this video.
That really should be a tag by now.
'comments disabled' is one of PoeTV's best tags, and it has been criminally underused as of late.
All of Ken Ham's videos have disabled comments and ratings on his official channel. The best way to maintain your sheep is shelter them from outside opinions. There's also the matter of Answers in Genesis being so unreliable and willfully ignorant that it has been criticized/shunned by other Young Earth Creationists.
oops, thanks for the reminder. Ken Ham is pretty much synonymous with disabled comments

Boy, they are frighteningly happy.

This is really, really frightening. If this was a parody, I'd think that they were over doing it.
Also wrong; Bart Ehrman, bitches.

5 for the shitty job in answering their own question. Gilgamesh and Utnapishtim would shatter their minds.

"Did you know there are only 7 surviving manuscripts of the works of Plato and thousands of manuscripts of the New Testament?"
Does she not understand that Plato died 500 years before the first books of the New Testament were written? That's like saying "Did you know there are more DVDs of Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch than there are surviving copies of the original Koran?"

Frankly, I can't see why having more manuscripts makes a single, authoritative version more likely instead of less.

Not that that's even true. The NT is a compilation. There are a lot of copies of certain things--the Gospel of John--for example, but very few of say, The Apocalypse of John, which so much of their dingbat evangelical philosophy is based.

I admire how rapidly she fluctuates from "There are as many as 5,000 versions so it must be true!" to "There are only 40 versions so it must be true!"

I once wrote a 12-page term paper contrasting the various accounts of the life of Jesus Christ in the New Testament, and saying they agree with each other is insane. You can get over minor tics in language, but there's so many significant narrative variations between the books you'd have to have not read the damn thing not to notice.
Jesus wears different colored cloaks to his trial. He says different things on the cross. The date of his death changes. Luke adds extra stories about women and the poor because he was trying to get laid. All that weird "God is a vaguely Platonic word-ghost" mysticism is John's doing. Matthew just decided to rewrite Mark but change like five words for some reason.
You don't need to go on the Internet and memorize lists of fucked-up things in the Bible. Just read a couple pages and watch them fly out at you.
It's funny that you said Air Bud. I grew up with the kid whose dog was the original Air Bud (probably not the one you're talking about) but I have more proof that Air Bud was real dog than I do of anything written in the Bible. Weird.
Re: The Gospels contradicting each other. I went to a Catholic highschool and they addressed this. The Gospels contradicting each other is proof that they're real because if they were lieing they'd want them to be consistant.
I'm dead serious.

You don't bring a knife to a gunfight, and you don't bring squeaky upspeak laden with exclamation points to a scholarly debate.

Oooo, that smug ol' Jesus! With His young earth and His dinosaurs that He totally rode upon!
We'll show Him, especially for that 'purple monkey dishwasher' remark!

Please stop posting this shit, it makes me hurt since my deprogramming.

'Irritating' or 'smug?' I'm detecting a slight "nonbelievers are stupid" vibe in this video.

Look guys, the prophesies in the Bible came true! It says it in the Bible!
And of course the Dead Sea Scrolls match the Old Testament. The major modifications and redactions to it, of which there were several, were done before the writing of the scrolls.
I'd love to hear their explanation as to why the city of Tyre is still standing.

The most infuriating thing to me is that you literally can't argue with this kind of mindset. Whatever headway you might make with facts and figures will ultimately be trumped by a "god said so." Doesn't mean you shouldn't try every so often though.

Jesus, that is crazy at a very intense level.

After viewing, the title now reads as "The Bible Is Not, Like, the Telephone Game! (giggle!)" in my head.
Also, is there a word for the squeaky forced-through-an-unnatural-smile voice? We need a word for that.

Otto West: Don't call me stupid.
Wanda: Oh, right! To call you stupid would be an insult to stupid people! I've known sheep that could outwit you. I've worn dresses with higher IQs. But you think you're an intellectual, don't you, ape?
Otto West: Apes don't read philosophy.
Wanda: Yes they do, Otto. They just don't understand it. Now let me correct you on a couple of things, OK? Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself." And the London Underground is not a political movement. Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked them up.

There was a 33% chance that they would film this in either the Christian bookstore where it is, their megachurch (it might be a Christian bookstore attached to their megachurch), or their home, aka the only three places they are allowed to go.

I watched the whole thing.

I love how this is on the official Answers in Genesis channel, yet every single related video is about how ridiculous/wrong they are.

THAT VOICE. SOMEONE STOP HER FROM SPEAKING.
