Discussion in 'Religion and Ethics' started by Max Power, Jan 14, 2006.
way too long to view!
Penn & Teller Bullshit! is such a cool show. Have you ever seen the one about PETA?
I saw Penn&Teller in Chicago about 20 or so years ago.
He keeps saying "Elvis never did not drugs!" as if it proved his point or something. He also uses the Old Covenant arguments that have been explained on this site before, bringing up the 'purity' laws in the old testament and saying you can't 'throw them away', without regard or understanding of the New Covenant and how it changed those rules.
He does bring up good points about Noah's Ark, and other stories that could not be scientifically factual, but all in all didn't 'debunk' the bible any more than any other person did. At the end, the answer was Faith...
Even the sceptic magazine guy was willing to say there 'Probably was a man named Jesus..."
Thankfully you self-debunk so we don't need any hired help.
That was actually at the beginning.
And the end. Did you watch the whole thing. The Dr. stated at the end that over all there was a need for Faith.
Yeah, I did.
My point was that the started out by saying something to the effect that "this discussion isn't for you Christians who base your beliefs merely on faith... It's for those who think the bible is literally true and base your beliefs on such".
That's not even remotely close to the exact words, but that was the idea.
It was said at the beginning and the end, by different people. :arabia:
