Creationism Revisited

British atheist Ricky Gervais used to be an ardent believer in evolution. But then he got the facts from the bible and shares them with us. Personally, I'd already read it. Still, the way he examines the arguments for Creationism, well... if you are anything like me, you'll give the theory another chance. This is very convincing.

Thanks for posting. I bought my son the British Version of "The Office" and he loves it. The genius of Ricky Gervais needs to be spread around. Cheers.

Silly! How ya "bean"?

Yeah, he's a funny guy. I enjoyed this clip a good bit.

Yeah, this is another brilliant bit by him. He's a good argument for cloning. We need more work from this man. I fucking love Extras on HBO. I suppose there must always be dumbasses who stand in the way of art and science. The shit he deals with on Extras like the network's intrusions on his show are both frustrating and hilarious. Hilarious only in his managing them.

This argument on behalf of creationism was really convincing. I almost bought it but, by the grace of Zoroaster, I resisted. I urge you, please think carefully before going back to your superstitious past. Hang on to your rationalism, man! Don't give it up so easily!

@ Philly - I saw this several months ago and was planning putting it up. I really wasn't familiar with the guy but I guess I'll have to use my On Demand and watch a few of those Extras episodes.

@ Chaplain - I was really wavering after this video. Then I thought about you saying that I was one of your mentors. Realizing I have a reponsibility to you, I'll stick with a Darwinian world-view.... for now!

In the time it takes to write this, the universe has expanded 100 Trillion cubic light years... now I can stop fretting over clutter.
