Lewis Black: The Flintstones is not a documentary.

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

Jesus was reputed to be of the 'House of David'. Let's trace him back to his roots.

Yeah, but he was more relaxed about it, with the exception of the little fit with the merchants in the temple. Back in the Old Testament, God was a pissy little bastard. How many times in Exodus did He almost wipe out the Jews?

Joseph P, the whole "Hell" whoozit didn't show up till the new testament. The God of the old testament was a twisted fuck without a doubt, but Jesus? He's hate on roids.

@Mike Wolf: But at least it got God to chill the hell out. Old Testament = virgin God. New Testament = God after getting laid.

Jack's comment promoting his book and web site has been moved to the Discussions section for those of you who are interested, or who have read it and would like to review/discuss the humorous aspects.

Hey, I think I dated her!

Agree Mike. I seem to have sparked this discussion, seems to be good potential for a forum elsewhere. So by way of atonement, here's some heterosexual humor to lighten things up.

@Ivy - Yeah, but who are the ones always trying to advance the "against nature" argument? If you trace back, you'll find the connection to the Christians, almost every time. It's just like Intelligent Design.

Add to that the fact that homosexuality appears in pretty much all mammals, plus the evolutionary benefits of homosexual members within a pack species, such as humans, and the "unnatural" argument falls apart.

I have no opinion on it's application to this group, but the link is there between Atheism and gay rights.

@Joseph -- The "ick factor" is a cultural/sociological issue, yes. But there are plenty of people who argue that homosexuality is "against nature" based on the fact that two men/two women cannot reproduce and are not equipped for convenient, reproductively-oriented sexual congress. These people are not bible-thumping--they're using the natural sciences to point out that homosexuality is "unnatural." While religion is a huge source of fuel for hating on homosexuality, it hasn't cornered the market.

I let some of the gay-themed humor go because I admit to being on the fence about it, but I'm not inclined to open the doors to all humor that addresses anti-gay themes because it could easily overwhelm the comm. Perhaps there's someone here who would like to take it upon him/herself to start a sister community? (Gaytheist Humor, anyone? :P )

That said, it is my intention to keep the community focus on atheistic, anti-religious themes.
