    Ever watch Penn & Teller's show called Bullshit on Showtime?
    For those who haven't, it's a show where Penn and Teller staff a
    team of elite researchers to debunk common misconceptions.

    They've exposed many frauds on the show and covered such topics as

    Recycling
    Bottled Water
    Yoga
    Excersise vs Genetics
    Love
    Alien Abduction
    War on Drugs
    Hypnosis
    and the last one I saw was over THE BIBLE!!!! It was very interesting.

    Now I will say this, Penn & Teller are known Atheists, but it's hard to
    ignore the facts they brought up. They are literally bulldogs for the
    truth in every subject they cover. I would encourage everyone to
    at least watch it for entertainment value, although you might learn something.

    I've seen quite a few "debunkings" of the Bible, but none that have ever held water.

    Would one more hurt your faith???
    To me, there are alot of "facts" in the Bible that don't hold water.

    They actually strengthen my faith. As someone somewhere said once, faith is the abandonment of the will, not the abandonment of the mind. As I have yet to see a debunkment that actually stood up, I am more and more convinced of the truth of Christianity.

    My suggestion would be to open a thread in the R/E forum.

    I would have but I wanted to draw attention to the show as a whole.
    Hadn't planned on starting a debate. I figured that show topic would
    grab enough attention for people to watch the show.

    Yes, seasons one and two are both out now. Season one is probably pretty cheap now, it's been out for a while. Sometimes you have to look a little bit for the season one set because it has the show's name displayed very proudly on the front and spine, so it's hard for, say, Wal-Mart to just have that sitting on their shelves.
