… but wickedly funny. It’s an Eddie Izzard routine, enhanced with funny images. Topic: Jesus and the dinosaurs. Naughty language, basphemy, etc. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. (Thanks Will Holloway.)

  1. Glad you loved it Dr. Huenemann. I’m no atheist but I just found it hilarious. My ex who’s a protestant (I can imagine Kleiner now saying “well, that explains that”) sent it to me, I think its raunchy and fun but not too attacking. I think its more the life of brian approach.

    Oh, and any of those (and you know who you are) who’ve been attacking Kleiner recently for his views, shame on you. Disagreement is one thing, attacking his credibility or character is another, and grounds for an ass kicking (intellectual or otherwise).

    I thought the video was quite funny, and not nearly as offensive as the warning made it seem. “Why didn’t you say this is wine and it is a merlot?” is really a great line.

    I like locking horns with the atheists, and the SHAFTers I know are a well meaning bunch. Many new atheists have a tendency to replace argument with overheated rhetoric, and I think they have plenty of (unannounced) dogmas of their own, but I take no offense to anything that is said to/about me. But things can certainly get testy when you challenge basic liberal presumptions about sexual morality!
