This is the twenty-seventh installment in the Sacrilegious Humor series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a comedy bit that is irreverent towards religion, makes fun of religion, pokes fun at sincerely held religious beliefs, or challenges the firmly held religious beliefs of others, please email me the name of the bit or a link to it.
Today’s bit is Evolution, Creationism, Christians, and Jews by Lewis Black.
Warning, many of the comedy bits in this series will contain profanity. You have been warned.
Never heard this guy before but he’s great. I’m going to watch a few more clips.
In a few sentences he had more meaningful assessment of the Old Testament than the likes of Alvin Platinga, Lee Strobel, and William Lane Craig combined.
Oh, yes! This is one of my favorites! Thank you!
So. I begin with “So” because I have consciously copied all the intellectuals and expert commenters on radio now… they must preface each statement with a “So” to emphasize and announce themselves to us listeners. It is like a school bell that goes off and wakes you from a slumber of mind that you have invested much time to achieve: SO! Wake up! I am about to pontificate!
So. It is a Thursday morning and I am home from work because my back has gotten too sore and needs a day of rest. I am reading Gerencser’s blog and the throb is just barely under control as I make my way along to Lewis Black, a guy I have not heard before. I’m a curious atheist and always willing to listen to someone new and I click. Well. So. I’m on the floor in horrible, stabbing pain in my back because I am laughing so hard I am crying! And I cannot stop laughing and each heave STABS me again and I am down for the count! Insult and injury! STAB!
You bastard, Gerencser!
Once you have heard one Lewis Black clip… you have to go listen to all his albums. Because, FUCK YES. He’s hilarious, and so right about many things. I first got turned on to him when he was on The Daily Show. Love him!
