Nothing I haven't heard. Just a Pompous Jerk saying it. I would, however, agree that you should read it the bible from cover. If you have questions, ask a pastor, not Penn or teller.

I also found funny that they quoted alot of Old testament laws for the last section. If you actually read the book through you'll see that those laws are no longer in play because of Christs Sacrifice and his declaration of the 2 greatest commandments. It was week but because it had a few well known magicians leading it people will think it's gold. I like Their Magic tricks, I just feel sorry for their eternal destination.

There is some truth. But it's so one sided it almost makes me fall over. . It made me think about it but I've heard all of those arguments before and they are decent but not all that effective if you're talking to someone who knows thier Christian Theology and the bible. They guy they had on there was made to look like a complete idiot but probably had alot more to say then they put on.

Obama is white. (I didn't watch the Penn & Teller videos, just answering the question)

If you seriously are not trolling (like Penn & Teller obviously are) then you need to get back in school. Hell, my kids even know how to tell the truth and take a one-sided stance...

Well Truth is now Realitive in this day and age.

What I was saying is that they didn't let the biblical scholar actually defend his stance. They just took snip bits of what he said and made him look like an idiot. Something that is not a new tactic in this area. What you saw in that video was based in truth, but not pure truth.

The Part where they were talking about the creation story and noah for example. They failed to mention that science literally can't prove anything either. They can say "well it happened this way" but they can't prove it. How many scientific Hypotheses about this are there? Tons, but they also fail to mention that when they are criticizing the bible for having a possible two creation stories in one.

They said something along the lines of "Noahs ark is impossible". Yet they fail to mention that the idea of something from absolutely nothing is impossible too. As far as that goes, it's either you believe something came from nothing or something has always been Eternal. Also, something they forgot to Go into.

That's just a couple examples of the One sided-ness of thier series. They don't have too be unbias because it's thier show but it's easy to get away with that when you don't even allow the other side to talk. That's basically what they were doing. It's quite frankly.....Bullshit.

If you take the Bible literally, you have to be insane.

I concur. I think a lot of people will say that they take the bible literally, then when you present them with what the bible actually says, they might question themselves.

Because they offer a comical insight to many people's stupid bullshit?

The shows on gun ownership, organic eating, etc... are hilariously relevant.
