Mr. Deity & the Skeptic

Hey, Mike Clawson here again. Sorry I’ve been scarce around here this past year. Between going back to graduate school (working towards a PhD in Religion/History), and taking care of the kiddos so my wife could work on her book (Everyday Justice: The Global Impact of Our Daily Choices, now available on Amazon!) and travel for speaking gigs, I haven’t had much time to keep up with all the interesting conversations going on here at Friendly Atheist, much less post anything myself. However, I was surfing the web the other day and came across this hilarious video that I knew y’all would get a kick out of.

Basic premise: Michael Shermer dies and has to talk his way into heaven with Mr. Deity and “the Boy”.

Best Line: Mr. Deity – “Is your integrity worth an eternity of hell-fire? I don’t think so.” :)

Best Subtle Visual: Mr. Deity munching on a banana in the post-clip sponsor commercial.

Enjoy!

    Mr. Deety is very funny. I have watched every episode several times. This one with Shermer is quite funny. Be sure to watch The Gag Reel also with Shermer.

    Good, except for the graphic “But their fun, too“. Their!!!, Their???. And, this is from a ‘professional’ production group? They should be ashamed. They will almost certainly lose business because of this, too. How could anyone trust them after a fox pass like that?

    The way Mike used this video clip as an excuse to make a post here for the purpose of shameless self-promotion of himself and his wife just made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.

    It’s a blog :) Self-promotion is allowed. I do it fairly often.

    And have you seen what Mike’s wife’s book is about? It’s about a subject that needs to be discussed and talked about.

    Thanks Hemant. :)

    Though quite honestly my thought process was basically “Heh, that was a funny clip. I bet the folks at Hemant’s blog would like it. Oh, but I’d better explain why I haven’t been around here for the past 6-months before I just pop back in. Hmmm, at least I can mention Julie’s book, that’s a pretty good excuse, right?” :)

    Have I finally found my evil twin? Or are you the good one?

    It’s always good to hear from you Mike. I hope all is well with your family. That video was very funny, and in the same good-natured spirit that I have come to expect from your posts. Thanks for sharing it. I’ll check out Julie’s book.

    I know you’re busy, but don’t be quite so scarce.

    “fox pass”. Love it :D

    Jesus is hot. That’s all.

    Is good, yes!

    I like how the sponsor has cooked for Tom Cruise & Mel Gibson. Maybe he’ll put in a good word for Mr. Deity the next time he’s cooking for those two pious dudes.
