[Religulous trailer. Release date October 1, 2008]
In the documentary, Religuluos, Bill Maher, a comedian and atheist of Catholic upbringing, attempts to demonstrate how ridiculous monotheism is.
Since he is ridiculing the majority of humanity, we would expect him to be a person who is living a very successful, exemplary life.
Mr Maher has never married or fathered children nor does he plan on ever doing so. He considers marriage to be a form of slavery. His recent girl friends have all been pornographic actresses, one of whom sued him for allegedly promising marriage and then dumping her.
This post may be dismissed by many as ad hominem. However consider this: Atheists are not only trying to teach us something theoretical, like for example that there are no little green men on other galaxies; they supposedly are teaching us how to enjoy life. What if everyone advocating a certain diet and fitness program was dying of cancer by age 30? Would that make you hesistant about it?
I think that atheists will admit that they have a problem when the last living human stumbles out of a gay bar and drops dead in the gutter from an overdose. Of course, then it may be a little late.
