Whoever is in charge of this should spontaneously explode on live TV, maybe after being struck by lightning.  The fact that has not and will not happen is about the biggest proof that god does not exist in all of recorded history.  It should honestly be a basis for a new atheist based religion, the fact that the people associated with this crap arent just farking exploding publicly.  I mean really this level of farkery justifies a galactic sized foot and leg coming from the sky and squishing these farkers flat with a booming voice yelling "OH JUST fark YOU, SERRIOUSLY!"

There's a whole nutter narrative in fundie RW circles about Obama being pure evil at his core. Not just liberal or even "unAmerican", but spiritually, mystically evil...or as my Mother once put it to me, "he's evil, evil, evil"...*sigh*

I'd be surprised if these 'film makers' didn't know that.

Nabb1: WorldCitizen: Sock Ruh Tease: Why is there an actor who plays Satan in a History Channel miniseries?

This is why I dropped cable.

Because one channel ran a show you don't like? That'll show 'em.


Well, if you don't appreciate The Bible on the HISTORY CHANNEL, you can always avail yourself to their many other fine, historical offerings, like Big Shrimpin', Cajun Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Hairy Bikers (I am NOT making this up!), UFO hunters, Shark Wranglers, Swamp People or Full Metal Jousting. If this is the best they can do, I'd rather ditch cable completely and read a book.

I tried to ask once, I got incoherent references to some anti-Obama propaganda film she saw with her super-fundie southern baptist church in Louisiana. Clearly this popular sentiment is not rooted in anything one might call reality.

I think he meant because all of these channels that used to show some great documentaries and educational TV are now devoted almost exclusively to crap reality shows. And he is right.

In fact, this miniseries is actually about as good as you can get nowadays.

Not too long ago, you could easily find marathons where you could lose yourself all weekend -- History Channel, Discovery, TLC (which used to be the Learning Channel, as hard as that is to believe) and Discovery Science (which I was all psyched for, does it even still exist?) would always have stuff about dinosaurs, Roman dynasties, WW2, theories on interstellar travel and physics, the origins of man, you name it.

Its a wasteland now. I can't bear to watch those channels anymore, let alone pay for them.

So you're friends with my sister?

All valid points. At least the Bible, whether you believe or not, has historical significance as a book, and the stories it tells have significance beyond whether they are true or not by the sheer influence the had on shaping western civilization.

are Chicago politics well known for being down and dirty? yes.
I'm well aware of that.

I was talking about the common belief among some christian fundamentalists that Obama is at his heart an evil mystical being (perhaps even the devil). That is not the same as being a politicians from a well known rough political environment.

Actually there was a less likely chance Middle Easterners were very brown 2,000 years ago. DNA studies show that a huge percent of Middle Eastern ancestry comes from black African women due to the slave trade importing massive quantities of females that were often taken as concubines by Middle Eastern men with fewer options. The Arab slave trade didn't really take off until centuries after Jesus' alleged existence.

Yemeni Arabs, due to their proximity to Africa and significant role in the slave trade have ~25% of their ancestry from black Africans and they often look it. That % of recent African ancestry drops the further you get from the Gulf nations.

I tried to watch that via The History Channel's app on my iPad...I couldn't get into it.  I guess I was expecting a documentary, not a movie-type miniseries.  I can definitely see the appeal though.  I ended up watching Larry the Cable Guy be Amish for a day instead...at least he actually talks about the history of the country...and embarrasses people along the way.
