College Humor Tackles the Question ‘Is God Made Up?’

The folks at College Humor have answered the question: “Is God Made Up?” And you won’t believe it: the website that mocks everything in sight found a way to mock religion…

Love the line at 1:39: “Religion has had a profound, transformative effect on my life. It’s transformed my Facebook feed from boring to insufferable.”

Anyway, glad we finally settled that debate.

    Awesome video. I love how casually some of them refute God, like it’s nothing. “God is so clearly made up, just like Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny”. The logic really is just that simple, that’s what’s so great about it.

  • Mr. Pantaloons

    “If you ever want to convince yourself there is no God, just try talking to an atheist! It’s horrible! What kind of God would allow THOSE assholes to exist?”

    The whole thing was great, but this line cracked me up. XD

    Love the Game of Thrones reference ;)

    Eventually I will learn (and heed) that a word like “humor” merely indicates the intent to amuse; not the success of it.

      So jokes at the expense of religion sort of leave you where rape jokes leave people with empathy for women?

      • m6wg4bxw

        What are you talking about? Why would I care whose expense? What has this to do with religion, rape, and women?

        • Renshia

          Oh! Come on!! Surely you can see that there is a direct and distinct correlation between your not being all that amused and rape and pillaging. If your not laughing, you’re a raping. Only those with limited imagination couldn’t see that there is but a narrow crevasse of distinction between the two. Sheesh.

            Lucky for us, the world doesn’t work that way. Seriously, can you imagine the atmosphere in a comedy club?

      • skwerl

        No, I think s/he just meant that this video was “meh.” Sort of boring. Also, it always irks me when people say that Buddha is a god. You should learn your subject matter before writing a script.

      I’m with m6wg4bxw. It was like watching Jerry Lewis trying to explain comedy, instead of actually doing comedy. The same goes for most College Humor videos.

      • Rain

        Comedy is hard.

          Being god is easy.

            Yep. He gets credit when there are survivors of disasters He caused or could have prevented and no blame for the actual disaster. He even gets credit for putting the rescue workers and doctors in a position to help His victims.

            If it isn’t the gays or the atheists that get the blame for provoking Him into an Act of God, then it’s the Devil who is the perp. Funny how a fallen angel created by a God gets to be the scapegoat for his omnipotent Creator.

            Note that YHWH doesn’t have such an easy time though, if iron chariots are involved.

    “So many writers have written eloquently about atheism … AND GOD’S KILLED ALL OF ‘EM!”

    “Cool, lets talk about Breaking Bad now.”

      Holy crap! So is Walter going to be guilty of unleashing the Aryan skinheads on his brother-in-law and Jesse?

      • Guest

        ***SPOILER ALERT***

        Jesse: Yes. BiL: Accidentally collateral damage.

    These people are so out of line. There is one one TRUE God.

    I love there’s a Christian Mingle ad below the video. That’s what we call a horrible job of targeting their audience.
