This is the best thing.
"This goes beyond evidence" - religion in a nutshell.
This is why the Bible was written in English.

Leans a bit heavily on that strawman, but good for a laugh.
I would like to hear what the Comrade's definition of a strawman is.
Because that phrase doesn't mean what he thinks it means.
The problem is that the name sounds similar to the Aristotelian Primum Movens which, unlike this idea, is a sound and valid proposition. Whether this was done with purpose, I will not speculate.
I meant what I said.
I guess that should have been with the caveat that if these are the arguments you think are typical of religious people in general, then I feel really sorry for you.
I've never spoken with anyone about the subject who couldn't back up their beliefs better than what's represented here, so yeah, it's a convenient strawman at worst, and a gross oversimplification of religious beliefs at best.
Most religious people I've met -- a shitload -- have varying degrees of ability to back up their beliefs, but in the end it comes down to faith. And faith is unshakeable in the face of absurdity. They believe what they believe because they believe it. This is, in fact, the key to religious thought -- the ability to believe something, to LOVE something, with no true evidence of its existance.
You're telling me every religous person you've met doesn't eventually fall back on faith? Bullshit. That's the point of the thing. And this video simply provides the reasons for a person to have faith in God -- because it makes life so much easier in X ways.
Yep, that about sums it up. I'm going to have to favorite this puppy.
See, this is funny and actually insightful, but if you REALLY want to be driven insane, try using this argument against someone schooled in Christian Apologetics.
I never knew such a thing existed!

But anyone with a penis and at least one functioning testicle can impregnate a virgin! That's a lousy example of all-encompassing power and perfection.
Wow! This is the best statement against the Jews I've ever found online! Well thought out.
I like the internet sometimes.
smarmy but irrefutable
