You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

Lots of NSFW language… but it’s totally worth it to watch God meet His Maker:
Hemant Mehta is the chair of Foundation Beyond Belief and a high school math teacher in the suburbs of Chicago. He began writing the Friendly Atheist blog in 2006. His latest book is called The Young Atheist's Survival Guide.
I want a standard class 7 universe to rule over. That would be kick ass but if I cannot have that I’d rather worship the hot naked blonde.
Pretty sure that’s Aphrodite
I’d rather have Qetesh from SG-1
Totally valid. She’s a badass.
It gets a little too classic Star Trek “beat them over the head with the message” at the end, but still a cool little animation.
Is it possible to be too obvious when trying to get a theist to let go? They cling very tightly to their delusion. Don’t think of it as being directed at atheists, except for that little frisson of satisfaction it gives you.
Totally worth watching to the end.
The double, triple and quadruple halos were fun. I forgot to look for the same thing with the wings after the first time.
It makes me wonder where Jeffery started.
That was pretty good. Loved the ending.
I am SO tired of people saying that square circles are an impossibility. Just draw the circle for the perfectly legal metric (a distance with extra rules) D=IxI+IyI.
What is impossible squarING of a circle as defined by th eold greeks – but that is something completely different. Math is the most beautiful work of art human has done – do not soil it by sprouting nonsense.
erm, some of us are really math challenged. i have no idea what D=IxI+IyI means. but i won’t invent a religion to refute you, i promise.
this was a good video. quite cute. i hope it goes viral.
I think what MariaO is after is that a circle is a set of points on a plane with a given distance (radius) from its center point. If you substitute |x|+|y| instead of square root of (x^2 + y^2) as the definition of distance, you get something like a square standing on one corner whose all points are |x|+|y| distant from its center (thus matching the definition of the circle). This obviously isn’t Euclidian geometry anymore, though.
Love the rubber trident….
The ending gave me chills, in a good way. Definitely DarkMatter’s best yet.
I’m with Kevin, though my wants are a bit more Nietzschean: hundreds of grandchildren, utter domination of the known universe and the pleasure of hearing that all of my enemies have in terrible, highly improbable accidents that cannot be directly linked to me. Oh, and the hot naked blonde chick.
Wow! Who knew that Rick Bayless is meta-God 1.0?
