Lewis Black: The Flintstones is not a documentary.

A slightly longer version of the clip that used to be here.

Or as George Takei said, it was the French spelling, Adam and Yves.

In the beginning there was Adam and Eve and Steve, who was the original supermodel, the pureblood.

Concentric circles of hell, with flames, people, demons, pitchforks, etc. At the bottom, demon construction workers working, with a sign: COMING SOON - TRUMP CIRCLE

"...Who controls the weddings / So gays can't say 'I do'
Blame it on a book and a 2000-year-old Jew?

The Vatican / The Vatican can
The Vatican can 'cause it sticks its nose right in to make the world less good.

...Who's got all the money / With zero taxes due
Hidden in these buildings and a bank that's kept from view?...

...Who makes all the dying / Suffer till they're blue
Read their rites and watch them as they choke on their own spew?..."

@Cat

I've heard the exact opposite from Christians.  If all knowledge of all gods went away, the first people who rediscovered the concepts might perceive the one true, transcendent god in a distorted way, based upon their own biases.  You'd think that if a god of some sort was getting in touch with those people, it would do a better job of communicating, but whatever.

But eventually, belief would evolve back into the one true, trinitarian Christianity.  Because that's the one true religion that all ancient religions have given over to, as the truth became known, apparently.

I can only assume that these people have never been outside of the US.

I guess it might seem like a clever way to dismiss all of the tens of thousands of other gods there have been, while continuing to hold their own religion true, but to me, on the outside of their echo chamber, it just seems desperate.

@Bert

It at least makes a bit more sense within the context of an assortment of polytheistic pantheons.  Some of the stories about the creation of the entire Earth by their one god can't be true, but most of the gods are fairly provincial and just watch over the people who worship them.  There's nothing that says that there couldn't be multiple, competing war gods.

Hell, for that matter, some creation myths don't involve a global act of creation.

Xenophanes: 

The Ethiops say that their gods are flat-nosed and black,
While the Thracians say that theirs have blue eyes and red hair.
Yet if cattle or horses or lions had hands and could draw,
And could sculpt like men, then the horses would draw their gods
Like horses, and cattle like cattle; and each they would shape
Bodies of gods in the likeness, each kind, of their own.

Who was it who observed that if you could wave a wand and magically, instantly eliminate all knowledge of the earth's religions, people wouldn't reinvent the same ones -- the probability is infinitesimal that you'd get Christianity again, for instance -- but if you magically, instantly eliminated all knowledge of science, we'd rediscover a very similar body of knowledge, because it simply does so well at explaining how the world works!

The difference between science and religion, yes.  If we're discussing something real, the vast majority of those who study a phenomenon will eventually arrive at more or less a consensus.

In religion, as time goes on, the interpretation of the phenomenon diverges wildly.
