Star Trek: Planet Atheist

The Star Trek crew explores a new planet, one “devoid of a belief in a creator God!” Oh no!

We should be thankful, though. The crew is greeted by our ambassadors, Emperor Carl Sagan and the mentally-challenged Darwin!

At least there are “billions and billions” of us. We can apparently procreate like crazy on our planet.

    Hilarious… I highly doubt they recieved permission to use the Star Trek trademark and copyrighted materials…

    Curious Captain, the inhabitants of this planet seem to be constructed entirely of straw.

  • Charles

    Wasn’t Gene Roddenberry an atheist? Also, this disgusts the hell out of me.

  • recorderjoe

    Oh my…that makes me so sad that someone spent the time and energy to produce that, but also that assume that there are people ‘out there’ that are nodding their heads in agreement.

    C’mon people.

    I found that deeply offensive…….. as a Star Trek fan.

    As an atheist…..meh.

    Alex’s comment above hit the mark.

    What he said!!!

    It reminds me of the Edward Current videos, but this isn’t satire. Sad.

    If they are going to throw out tired and false “arguments” at least they did it in a almost hurmorous way.

    Sad that they consider violence against atheists acceptable… Was that really necessary to the plot?

    -Cos.

    I don’t know whether to laugh, cry, or be offended. I feel all those things though. Do they know that Gene Roddenberry was a humanist? An atheist? He used the media to give a humanistic message to people.

    While parts are funny, I’m not so sure Gene would like it much.

    And as a Roddenberry fan.

    :”No god… no Ten Commandments… no code… no morality!” Jesus FREAKING Christ these people are so ethnocentric it’s literally not funny. How do they think people in non-Christian cultures get by without running around raping and murdering? I mean, the extremely common belief that all morality comes from God is ridiculous enough, but to go on to claim that all morality comes specifically from the Ten Commandments is idiotic beyond belief.

    “Sagan” also calls the creation of life from non-life evolution; as most of us here know, that’s actually called abiogenesis, but YECs consider pretty much every science that contradicts the 6000-year-old universe “evolution.” I had the pleasure of reading a creationist article once (probably on AiG) which used the hilariously meaningless phrase “evolutionary astronomers.”

    Anyway, it was all just a circlejerk of YECism for the benefit of the audience, so feh.

    Hilarious… I highly doubt they recieved permission to use the Star Trek trademark and copyrighted materials…

    Can’t imagine why they’d need it for a five-minute skit. Falls under fair use and/or satire, though of course I use the latter term loosely.

    That was 6 minutes of my life that I will never get back!

    This isn’t even funny.

    Morality from the bible, that is the joke. Didn’t the bible allow slavery for sexual favours?

    I believe the only character on the old show that seems religious was Dr. McCoy. Spock was definitely the extreme of skeptic/atheist.

    Maybe these guys should have prayed for an off-camera microphone.

    How do they think people in non-Christian cultures get by without running around raping and murdering?

    Actually, I think that’s exactly what they think is happening in other cultures.

    Can you get any more blatant copyright infringement than this?

    “Sir, you do realize that spontaneous species progression runs completely contrary to the basic laws of biology?”

    Yeah, Christian Spock, that’s why no one thinks that monkeys changed into humans.

  • Miresse

    Hey at least they acknowledged the Atheist tendency to hoard potted plants!

  • Karen

    Egads, that sucks! All too reminiscent of the “drama ministry” at my old church that put on badly written, badly lighted, unfunny and poorly acted shows as part of our outreach effort. It’s hard to believe anyone was attracted to the church by that dreck, or this stupidity.

  • Robin

    This isn’t an entry so much as a proposal:

    I know there are some Christians who post on this site, and I’d like to know:

    What would convince you there WASN’T a God?

  • Robin

    I’m a huge STAR TREK fan. I have it on DVD. And I mean, I have ALL of it on DVD.

    Dammit, Jim, that little fiasco is BLASPHEMPY!

  • Robin

    OOPS!

    I mean to post that one in the other thead…sorry, Captain Hemant.

  • Chucky Jesus

    Since when did Carl Sagan become a Mexican with a moustache? Also, why is believing we came from a rock more ridiculous than coming from dust (as Genesis says). Actually though, to state the scientific theory of evolution claims life came from a rock is a straw-man.

    I have just witnessed the power faith has to create, out of nothing, sketches filled with awkward stabs at humor, as though the sketch’s creators had heard of a thing called “comedy” and attempted to divine its meaning and application through careful study of scripture.

    In particular, I enjoy the laugh track that plays whenever the atheists reject the, ah, Godly truth.

  • Siamang

    Yeah, there’s two words that shouldn’t go together:

    Christian Spock.

    “Christian Spock, what do you make of the readings?”
    “Well, Christian Kirk, there seems to be a green-skinned belly-dancer a quarter-kilometer away.”
    “AHHH! Let’s go there and perhaps she and I can read Bible verses together.”

    This actually has the potential to be a hilarious parody!
