Re: ****Official RGT video thread****

I thought I watched the entire Superbowl but don't recall seeing this. Can anyone confirm that this commercial was aired during the 2013 Superbowl? I think it's awesome btw. Thanks.

It's a hijacked Scientology Ad. CultofDusty did the new ending.

Maybe there's someone in the movie called And More, hmmmm?


Another one via The Friendly Atheist:


A little cutesy (all together now, "That doesn't make sense!"), but the ending is great for little Einstein McFreaky-Pants.

p.s. spent way too much time trying to figure out how to embed vimeo on 2p2. Anyone know if there's a simple way to do this?

There's so much going on in that vid (some of which might be my imagination)...

First, he previously tells her how she, her husband, and child are blessed, and she says nothing. Then he asks her if she thanks the lord, to which she replies a sheepish, "Yeah". It's only when he presses her that she comes out and admits to him that she's an atheist. Lastly (and this is what could be my imagination), it seems like he kind of rears back while saying, "Oh you are. Well alright, then don't thank the lord".

I agree she handled it well. I'd have been tempted to respond with how mad I was at the lord for wiping out the school and killing little children. The good news is that with an ever increasing population of non-believers, reporters probably should stop assuming that everyone they interview is a theist lest they wind up inserting their foot in their mouth.

That's great for this man and his friends and family. However, it would put things into perspective if EVERY Christian family that had a family member become sick, and who refused to accept what the Dr's thought the outcome was expected to be, had a mini-documentary made about them. I would expect there would be a great deal of heartache and "they're in a better place now" comments, and very few recoveries (which can and do happen against the odds) such as this example.

This is a long-winded way of saying: check your selection bias.

Sure, you can think that; however, not every woman had a husband that passed away because of cancer; not every woman is spiritually minded; yada yada yada.

you're putting a great deal of faith into how spiritually minded other people are, something that you couldn't possibly know, yet would appear to be crucial for your hypothesis to be true.


eta: we shouldn't turn this into a discussion thread, I think you will agree
