Is there a better way to end a workweek than with a video of a Ricky Gervais stand-up routine on religion? (No, no there is not.) Since going to the Creation Museum, these jokes strike a different chord for me. They’re even funnier reflecting on how silly the stories are, but I’m also reminded that there are people who take Genesis as literal truth.
I only did a cursory search and don’t think Hemant has put this up before, but if he has – take this opportunity to watch it again!
I used to think we evolved from apes – Darwin’s theory of evolution from natural selection seemed pretty watertight. But in doing research for the show I came across a theory that deviates from Darwin’s, and I believe it. I just found it in a dusty old book in the library – it’s called the Bible… and… Darwin was wrong. We didn’t evolve, God made us.
Some of the things you’ll hear do sound a little bit far-fetched, I admit that. I thought it was, but then I found out that the other name for the Bible is the gospel – so it is all true. Luckily, the clue is in the title.
Hilarious. Have a great weekend, everyone!
