I’d watch this show.
Dan Savage tells us his idea:
Devout contestants representing all the major world religions will be left on a deserted island with a large group of religious people, agnostics, and atheists. The religion that wins the most converts in, say, six months’ time wins the coveted “World’s Fastest-Growing Religion” title. No forced conversions allowed—no point of the sword stuff, Islam! And no conversions of children—no baptizing babies, Catholics, and no manipulative “teen nights,” Evangelical Christians! Points will awarded on a sliding scale: wishy-washy agnostics are worth 25 points; religious people—a.k.a. folks that already fell for it—are worth 50 points; honest-to-God atheists are worth 100 points.
- An atheist is worth four agnostics. I like it.
- If an atheist is worth 100 points, what is PZ worth?
- Six months on an isolated island trying to get converted by representatives of various religions? It’s like college all over again…
