"God have you been drinking?" That's good.

the only thing funnier is comedy central's bandwidth!

If I were going to greenlight a Daily Show clip, this wouldn't be it.

On another note, what the HELL is Hasbro thinking?
 
2006-12-20 12:55:35 PM  
Not their best stuff.

They are losing their original producer; wonder if their edginess will go with him?

This Week in God is just not This Week in God without Colbert.
 
2006-12-20 01:04:51 PM  
"This Week in God" hasn't been good since Colbert left. Though I do like Samantha Bee better than Rob Cordry.
 
2006-12-20 01:05:20 PM  
This isn't their best work, not by a long shot, but the interview last night with Bill Kristol was great.

Well, Christianity does offer an endless supply of material.

Love DS and Colbert though!

In regards to the U2 thing, I found out yesterday that their album, The Joshua Tree was awarded best christian album for 1988 by some christian music awards show. Also that when Joshua is translated to Hebrew and then into Greek it means Jesus.

/the more you know...

Actually, This Week In God has relatively little to do with christians specifically, but does a lot in terms of religion in general. The problem lies entirely in the law of averages and Fox News.

The Daily Show only focuses on what the media gives us, so if the flavor of the week just happens to be christians, you can't really blame them for using it. It's not like they can just lampoon a religion you didn't subscribe to when that particular group hasn't actually done anything to make them worthy of media coverage.

If the majority of christians out there really cared about stopping The Daily Show from picking on them, they'd have taken Fox News off the air ages ago. If you want to blame anyone for your oppression and persecution, Geraldo might be a good place to start.

Ah, yes, if only we lived in a country where mocking Christianity was punished by death, that would be true freedom and Christian behavior.

\\Hebrew came first, and then English.

Pxtl: Daily show just hasn't been the same since Colbert got his own timeslot.

This is far from the best segement, but John himself is clearly still in very fine form.

Checkout this interview he did with Bill Kristol last night.

Glad that Comedy Central finally got their video junk figured out.

Us Safari/Mac users were cut out of there for awhile.

The Daily Show is just not funny.
 
2006-12-20 01:49:43 PM  
Man, I'm glad all these folks are here to let us know what's funny and what's not. I was afraid I'd be forced to have an opinion of my own.

better gregly?
 
2006-12-20 01:52:26 PM  
Yes, absolutely better. Thank you.

I'm sorry, it just really rubs me the wrong way when people state opinions as facts.

Welcome to Fark.com gregly. First day here?
 
2006-12-20 01:55:59 PM  
Having been to a church that sang "Where the Streets Have No Name" and "Mysterious Ways" as worship songs many years back, this hardly surprises me.

I also dated a chick who told me Bono was a "Christ figure." Broke up with her when I found out she was writing erotic fanfiction about herself and her "Christ" and I told her she'd have to make a choice between that and me.

Guess which one she chose? :-P

Good riddance.

\"Yeshua" becomes "Jesus"
\\"Yeshua Macshiah" becomes "Jesus Cristo"
\\\ "Cristo" is probably derrived from "Krishna", incidentally!

Hello? Is anyone listening? These Comedy Central links never load. It should be a requisite that the YouTube link is posted at the top of the thread at least. Anyone got it?
 
2006-12-20 01:57:13 PM

No, but *science* can obtain all the answers, given enough time to do so. The invisible man is simply a convenient excuse for those too impatient to wait that long.
 
2006-12-20 02:00:08 PM  
First day here?

Yeah, I was waiting for that one, and I realize that it is par for the course here, and the rest of the Internet. And the newspapers. And magazines. And television, radio, graffiti, billboards, ham radio, and every other conceivable bit of media out there. But it still bugs the hell out of me.

So... many... ways... to tick this guy off. Hard to choose... just one or... speak at... normal... rate.

1. Welcome to the Internet. Enjoy your stay. Here's your free asbestos overalls.

Bones3D_mac: but *science* can obtain all the answers

Can it? I'm definitely agnostic, but I wonder if the application of the scientific method could truly reveal every aspect of the universe to us, given enough time. For example, what about the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle? It states that it is impossible to know both the position and velocity of an elemental particle with perfect precision. Doesn't this indicate something we simply can't do, and won't no matter how much time we have?

I believe that as we learn more about the quantum nature of the universe, we'll discover more and more that simply can't be proven, period. What that means, I have no idea.

c'mon, cut rain-monkey some slack.
he's right, they are losing their producer
and he was only 'wondering'. i wonder too,
you know this isn't a stewart solo affair,
they're a team. lose a major member of the team,
how will they do next season?

secularsage

At the church I attend (best to phrase it that way) they recently played a 40 min. interview between Bono and some pastor. I thought that was fairly weird, although admittedly it was mostly church appropriate.

As for The Daily Show... it has some hits and misses. I swear there is no lower form of comedy than the fake interview (I don't know if they still do those).

0) I'm not ticked off; I used a poor choice of words. I just think that if folks phrased their opinions as such more often, instead of making Crossfire-like statements, maybe we would have more debates and discussions instead of flamewars. Honestly, if my snarky sarcasm ruffled anybody's feathers, I apologize.

1) Been here since 1996. Back then we didn't have asbestos, we had to keep hauling ice bricks from up north to use as shields. Uphill, in the snow, both ways.

2) No, I was a Computer Science major leaning toward the Electrical Engineering side. But I do have to work with clients a lot, and that's probably why I try to phrase things diplomatically.

It's been speculated that they are a Christian or Gospel rock group, but are very clever at marketing themselves. Eu2charist is farking awesome :) My husband (typically) says that U2 is obviously Irish Catholic, and I am like 'well I don't see YOU people doing the u2ucharist."

He's Catholic :)

Gregly, thank you for that stunning insight into modern physics. You lose the intarwebs.
