Gotta Have Faith: John Cleese

"...It's not in any way against Christ or Christ's teachings. It's all about criticizing people who make something of Christ's teachings, which I think he himself would not recognize. There's a lovely line that an idea is not responsible for the people who hold it. A lot of people in America who describe themselves without any hesitation at all as Christians are, in my opinion, completely missing the point of most of his teachings. It was like Tom DeLay, who said, with reference to turning the other cheek, that he never understood that bit of theology, which is absolutely the key to everything that Christ says. Here you've got a guy who's made a political career out of being supported by evangelical Christians, and he's totally missed the point of the teaching. So is he a Christian?"
John Cleese on Life of Brian, from The AV Club Interview.

The Best of GodTube: Evolution Videos

And now, with the help of GodTube ("Because otters holding hands are just too secular for usTM"), GodSpam presents The 5 Funniest Creationist Arguments Against Evolution:

#5: Evolution is impossible because fish can't breathe air!

#4: If the Big Bang can't happen in your garage, it sure as heck can't happen anywhere else.

#3: Where are the monkeyfish fossils?

#2: If we're all descended from monkeys, then how come you can't bring a monkey on a plane? (skip to 12:05)

#1: Evolution can't be real because peanut butter doesn't procreate.
