Lewis Black: The Flintstones is not a documentary.

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

Being an observer of others' pain and using it as a comedy device just seems barbaric to me. Are we not more advanced as human beings than that? Release of whose suffering? 
If we observe a victim of religion doctrine, and make a joke of it, how are we to be a source for enlightenment? It is not the observer of suffering to whom we should cater; it is the sufferer who needs the relief. Do you think the raping priest should be entertained, or the rape victim who should be empowered?

The emotional release from that suffering.

Maybe that explains why humor involving pain is not funny to me. Laugh at suffering? Why? What is the point? What is there about pain that is funny?

Well, you won't understand most comedy, until you learn to laugh at suffering.  The best comedy is directed at ourselves.

Joseph P, I get your point. I come from a very different place when it comes to physical or emotional fighting. So, I can always delete such depictions and read on and whoever finds it funny can laugh. I cringe.

Grinning Cat, now, this is what I call funny!  It reveals lack of education,  it implies a person who has trouble expressing him/herself and does not mind revealing his unsophistication. The poor sot believes superstitions and propaganda. 

"Why do you love the devil?"

Because of homos? government recipients? adulterers? gangsters, etc., etc.

Spelling errors, punctuation errors, and reasoning errors. Can't get much funnier than that!

the video clip showing a priest and atheist boxing is if it were funny. I challenge the humor; it isn't funny. It is stupid, ridiculous, obnoxious, and solves nothing. When they get done, what do they have to show for their energy exertion? Black eyes? bruises? Who wins? the better boxer?

That's kind of the point.  The joke is that it's a metaphor for what it's like arguing with some believers.  It's just a pointless slap fight, which solves nothing.  That's the joke.

ɟǝןıx dǝʇɹɐɹ , the video clip showing a priest and atheist boxing is if it were funny. I challenge the humor; it isn't funny. It is stupid, ridiculous, obnoxious, and solves nothing.

Oh well, this shows, just one more time, I have no sense of humor, I do have a sense of practicality. What works when in a discussion with a priest? Nothing! So, knock the dust off your sandals and go your own way. 

Terry Groff, of course I noticed this is called "Atheist Humor". Now show me some. 

rockytijm I was not offended. I just think humor is an excellent way to express principles. This one did no such thing. So, everyone thought it was funny, does that mean I should have found it so?

Shouldn't it say "Loud Mouth Wome'n"?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on February 5, 2013 at 9:50am

What is "P.K's" on that sign?  Preacher's Kids?
