Well, He Convinced Me

If you can get past the grating voice, you will surely lose your faith in atheism:

    This is brilliant. :D He had me at the 0/100 degrees Celsius thing. :)

    Sacha Baron Cohen did it first and better.

    What is he supposed to be mocking  , creationists or white trash?

    Either way, too annoying to be funny.  That’s 2 minutes of my life gone.

    Not a bad Poe at all. I’ve seen better but I’ve also seen a lot worse.

    It’s been a long week- that’s a poe right?

  • Utmu

    I love this guy, he’s actually an atheist himself to anyone who may not know, he often voices his opinions on certain issues and gives random scientific info on his other channel http://www.youtube.com/user/deanleysen. I don’t really watch his alternate ego’s videos, but Dean’s great.

    Got as far as point number one, freezing and boiling point of water, zero and 100………uh, weren’t those measurements man made? hard to tell from what I watched as to whether it is a joke or not.

  • The Godless Monster

    How can anyone not instantly see that this is a Poe? He has all of his teeth.

    His accent is a bit muddled, like Adam Sandler as a redneck from Louisiana using Ebonics.

  • The Godless Monster

     Then he must be from west Detroit.

    Yes, it’s a Poe, watch the WHOLE thing, including the credits where it says “These videos are for comedic purposes only”.

    But it could’ve been immensely improved with just a slight zoom out….

  • Beadknitter

    Haven’t laughed this hard in awhile. Actually triggered my asthma. :-)

  • Don Gwinn

    Did you call the police?  That’s a Poe-Poe.

  • Conspirator

    Has to be a poe, I don’t even need the credits.  But I loved it, it’s as good as most creationist arguments.  Number 8 was funny, just like the idiot representative from Kansas City, MO, Emanuel Cleaver, who recently said that he didn’t believe there were atheists because how could any self-respecting atheists carry money in their wallet that says “In God We Trust”.  Sadly that wasn’t a poe.

    He’s hot. I’d totally do him.

    No. No. That’s *south* Detroit.  

    (the only thing directly south of Detroit is Canada)

    When he got to the lightning bit, all I could think of was “Tide Goes In, Tide Goes Out”.

  • CoboWowbo

    I liked his “Gangsta Pick-Up Artist” video better…

    Not a bad attempt at Poe. A little too silly to be taken seriously though.

    Can someone explain to me what a Poe is?

  • Tinker

    A Poe is something that is a parody on the real thing. So named because of Poe’s law which states; Poe’s Law is an axiom suggesting that it’s difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish between parodies of religious or other fundamentalism and its genuine proponents, since they both seem equally insane.

  • Alex

    That instantly had me in tears laughing. Couldn’t watch any further.

  • retro

    I call poe on this one, too well thought out to be a real fundie :)

    I think he’s taking the mickey out of Sami Zaatari.
