Stupid Arguments for God: Scientific Proof of the Bible #1.

Using nothing but ice cream and chocolate bars the folks over at The TRUTH™ Group present: Scientific Proof of the Bible #1.

Wow. I’m totally convinced by that bit of reasoning. Pardon me while I rush out and convert back to being a Christian. How can anyone hope to remain an atheist in the face of such astounding logic and evidence of the Bible’s truthiness? Not to mention the high production values of that video. The Reese’s-Jesus t-shirt was a nice touch.

Found over at the Atheist Media Blog which I’ll have to never visit again now that I’ve reached enlightenment.

  1. yup, still waiting for an actual proof there, boys!

    ok, funny thing is I bet I’d totally get along with those guys in real life (if I could just overlook the kitschy t-shirts and theological views) smile

  2. Hmm,

    By that “logic” EVERY creation myth, from patagonia to the arctic is scientific fact…

    What is the logical deduction that follows to be made regarding the fundies’ claim that they have the ONLY path?

  3. I almost said ‘Poe’- but having seen their site no one spends that much time, do they? (Oh wait Dihydrogen Monoxide did- damn I’m still confused).

  4. I also thought you’d been Poe-d. Until I checked out their website.

    They really ARE that crazy.

    Shudder.

    Please, please, please tell me they don’t breed.

  5. You know, I don’t really care what they believe. Heck, if they want to claim the moon is made of cheese, so be it. The problem arises when they start trying to force this indoctrination of religion onto school children as a legitimate science theory.

    Why can’t they worship to themselves or in areas suitable for such discussion, like say a church?

    Oho!! But they ARE breeding….quivers full of arrows in God’s army!

  7. Yeah, I know. I attended an evolution lecture not too long ago and the speaker said, “The bad news is, the stupids are outbreeding us.”

  8. As the 21st century began, human evolution was at a turning point. Natural selection, the process by which the strongest, the smartest, the fastest, reproduced in greater numbers than the rest, a process which had once favored the noblest traits of man, now began to favor different traits. Most science fiction of the day predicted a future that was more civilized and more intelligent. But as time went on, things seemed to be heading in the opposite direction. A dumbing down. How did this happen? Evolution does not necessarily reward intelligence. With no natural predators to thin the herd, it began to simply reward those who reproduced the most, and left the intelligent to become an endangered species.-Idiocracy

  9. I blame seatbelt laws and I’m only half joking about that. Forcing everyone to wear seatbelts means the stupid people, who normally wouldn’t wear them, are surviving more car crashes and going on to breed more.

  10. First off…can somebody define “POE”

    As for this video, I have to wonder if they got Edward Current to co-produce?

  11. It’s short for Poe’s Law. Here’s the definition from the Rational Wiki:

    Poe’s Law states:

    “Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won’t mistake for the real thing.”

    Poe’s Law relates to fundamentalism, and the difficulty of identifying actual parodies thereof. It suggests that, in general, it is hard to tell fake fundamentalism from the real thing, since they may both espouse equally extreme beliefs. Poe’s law also works in reverse: real fundamentalism can also be indistinguishable from parody fundamentalism. For example, some conservatives consider noted homophobe Fred Phelps to be so over-the-top that they think he’s a “deep cover liberal” trying to discredit more mainstream homophobes.

    Mistakenly believing a parody to be the Real Thing is falling victim to Poe’s Law.

  12. @James: good premise, but Office Space seems to be his one (only?) hit so far. smile

    …although the thought of electrolytes does make me crave Brawndo…

  13. All I learned was that the guy with the glasses really needs a facial.  Did you see those pores in that close-up of his nose?

  14. So apparently you aren’t atheists, you are just lactose intolerant. At least that is what I think the message was.

  15. Hey, I WANT TO RECOMMEND YOU A BOOK 🙂
    Have You Read The Quran?? If Not Read It Once. It Is The Word Of God Which Was Sent Down 1400 Years Back & Not Even A Single Letter From It Has Been Changed.

    I Think Everyone MUST Read The QURAN atleast Once… And If You Are Really Finding The Truth, Than Its A Must..

    And also, I wanna share a story with you. It happened that once a boy had to go for his exam. On his way there was a river that he had to cross, but when he reached there he saw that there was no boat available at that time. He waited & waited but after some time he became hopeless & turned around to go back to his house.

    As he turned back, he saw a tree. That tree pulled itself out from the surface, along with its roots, than it cut itself into pieces & than smooth sheets & than made a boat out of itself & crawled into the water & took that boy across the river..

    Now Tell Me, Is This Possible??? Please Answer.

  16. Anna, I’ve read the Quran. I’m not as familiar with it as I am the Bible, but I’ve read it. I think it’s as much nonsense as the Bible is. It’s just another more violent twist on the original Abrahamic religion known as Judaism. Which makes the historic conflict between the Jews and the Muslims that much more stupid.

    As he turned back, he saw a tree. That tree pulled itself out from the surface, along with its roots, than it cut itself into pieces & than smooth sheets & than made a boat out of itself & crawled into the water & took that boy across the river..

    Now Tell Me, Is This Possible??? Please Answer.

    Of course it isn’t. I’m sure you’ll tell me it’s completely true and will fail to back it up with any evidence, but I’m doubtful it’s anything other than another fairy tale.

    As for your second comment, the link is down. So I’ll ask: Why should I read it? What do you think I will gain from it?
