Inspired by our talk about asshole atheists, we decided to watch Bill Maher’s film Religulous. Maher himself is frequently referred to as an asshole atheist and he certainly does his best to rile up several believers throughout the movie. We’d all seen the movie before but it elicited strong reactions and got us to think about what made us decide to be “out” as atheists. Molly, especially, has a lot of thoughts on the film. Like, three pages of thoughts. Then we get five answers from the UK!
Show notes are below the fold:
Here’s a link to Roger Ebert’s review of the film.
The Wickipedia article includes a section called “Historical Debate” that, conspicuously, has no citations.
Here’s a link to the entire video where Rachel Maddow pwns an “ex-gay psychotherapist.”
Creation is, indeed, streaming on Netflix.
Here’s a list of Kerr Avon quotes.
If you are ever in Sheffield, here’s where you can find QC’s Bagel Bar.
Finally, for those who are interested, here’s a link to all the notes Molly took while she was watching the movie (the first page here is actually her last page of notes because we’re lazy uploaders):
