Dr. Insano’s uncle, Dr. Decepto does battle with Bibleman in DVR-Hell! Can SCIENCE conquer the Kingdom of Heaven?
Insano’s Uncle? I gotta see this!
Insano has an uncle? Continuity much!
Science may have been defeated this round, but it will never lose the war, not as long as Dr. Insano draws breath with SCIENCE!
Activate “Boots of the Gospel!” Mm! Yummy.
I’m with Insano and Bill Nye. Science for life.
Mad Science involves a lot of hard work and study! They know what they’re doing.
Luv u Roses :)
No one gets me reference…sad… :(
Ironically enough, the Bible is chock full of musical numbers. Miriam, Mose’s sister, breaks into song upon getting out of Egypt, Mary (Jesus’s mom) sings the “Magnificat” in the book of Luke – heck, the entire book of Psalms is just a big songbook.
Yes, I’m a Christian. Yes, I’m a musician. Yes, I’m a dork – but proud of it :)
Have you seen “Jesus Christ Superstar”?
Is it just me, or did insano’s uncle have a dna mix-up with a pickle?
Insano shall thwart God!!! Damn you Bibleman!
Oh lord.. I was forced to watch this show all the time as a kid. Yeah, I had a pretty depressing childhood.
Why is Dr. Decepto green skinned? He looks like if Dr. Forrester married the Wicked Witch of the West and gave birth to him. No wonder Decepto cackle like the latter. BTW, I knew there had to be an Insano cameo somewhere in the video.
The only time I saw Willie Aames in anything was in season 2 of VH1′s Celebrity Fit Club. The way he went mental was hilarious. Probably better than this show!
Haven’t high fantasy and Star Trek taught you anything about green skin?
Actually Jim Carrey in The Mask taught me that being green is about being funny!
Insano is covered in green frosting, and is beating up a man in yellow football armor and purple spandex!
Quick, read the Bible!
You know what’s sad? I was mentally figuring out more actiony way for Bibleman to defeat Insano without compramising the Christian message. Bibleman could’ve done a prair to God to give him the striength to escape and he’d gain the striength t break open that door, or have a rope ‘mysteriously’ drop down so he could climb up to the balcony or something.
Me too! It’d have been way better. >__> And work with the same message anyway. Instead it’s all like “don’t do shit yourself, just pray and God will take care of your problems!”
Hell, JESUS had superpowers too. And all the prophets, IIRC.
One day in Sunday school when I was like nine, our teacher got sick so another one came over and put on one of these tapes for us. Then he left.
15 minutes in we were laughing like loons and had dubbed Bibleman “Captain Planet’s retarded brother”. Then we dug out some VCR game that had a tape with old monster movie clips (no idea why that was in my church) and watched that for the rest of the time.
What church do you go to? The Church of Joel Hodgeson?
No, dude! Joel is head Clergyman; his church is called the “Satellite of Love!”
It’s Captain Bathblock!
First time I’ve seen any internet reviewer take on Bibleman.
I wish atheists would make an anti-Bibleman. The mighty Realityman could show all the contradictions, lies, mistakes, and just plain silliness of the Buybull. He could have a great Rogue’s Gallery too like the wicked Funda-Mentalist, the evil Muhammadman, and Glenn Beck.
Yeah, I wish atheist will make a anti-Bibleman, too. The mighty Hypocriteman could kick down the doors of churches and say, “God doesn’t exist, stop shoving your beliefs down my throat!”.
Oh, preach it, Brother! I don’t know how many times those damn atheists knock on my door trying to push their non bullshit in my face. Hypocrites! They should just tolerate the intolerable and zip it with their bigoted non beliefs. I wish they would just shut up and let the people with bronze age mindsets run all over us.
Oh goodie, a religious argument.
You know religion is ultimately dogmatic and that no one is going to get anywhere, right? So you can stop wasting time, right?
Unlike atheism, which as we all know never *Cough, Stalin, Cough* tries to push itself on *Cough, Mao, Cough* anyone at ALL.
And, of course, all Christains are Jehovas witnessess instead of just a small minority…..
Not sure I understand the jump from dogmatism to Jehova’s Witness. You might be thinking of just proselytizing. Some of the most dogmatic groups are some of the least eager to convert. It has to do with the reasoning behind the beliefs, rather than how forcefully they are spread.
But since you bring it up, don’t you think there’s an important difference between believing (or not believing) something whilst doing evil, and doing evil because of your belief (or non-belief)?
Mao was certainly an atheist (Stalin, not so clear), but do you think his lack of belief in deities motivated the actions you hold in contempt? We despise any number of historical leaders who were theists without pinning their actions on that theism unless they were evidently motivated by it; I don’t see why it ought to be different with an absence of theism.
Righto. Because people who wanted to be worshipped as gods are the perfect examples of atheism. Communism is, for all thoughts and purposes, a religion, as all its articles must be taken by faith, and there is no objective way to observe its presumed achievements in practice. And the totalitarian Soviet system aimed to elevate its leaders to the position of worship, to boot.
Dogmatism gets a free pass because it’s dogmatic. I don’t follow.
Here’s a better way to say it: It doesn’t matter if you have a good argument. No one is going to listen.
True and false don’t matter to religion, therefore there can be no debate. Trying to have religious discussions is pointless because there is ultimately no way to judge the religious person without getting into a shouting match.
I’m atheist, by the way.
Just wait George. This is the TSE comments section so a flame war is inevitable.
There are over 10,000 dominations of Christianity, over 50 of Judaism and over 20 of Islam. Even Buddhism and Hinduism have different sects with different beliefs not to mention Pagan and Wiccan faiths. The Bible alone has many different translations and different interpretations. Now this all might just strengthen some atheists conviction that theology leads to nothing but there’s the simple fact when you generalize you’re a fool.
There’s way to much debate over religion anyhow. Judge by the person; atheist, agnostic or theist. Is it right to mock or look down on anyone just because there different than you? Isn’t that bigotry? Sure get mad at them, angry at them if their beliefs cause harm but saying religion is bad or all atheists are hypocrites is a falsehood used by zealots.
Instead of mockery how about promoting understanding, kindness and persuasion.
This was a much kinder response then I was expecting.
I was just trying to shut of religious debate because this really isn’t the place for it. I felt than the entire comments section had the potential to derail into a religious flame war, and wanted to nip the problem in the bud.
Sorry if I offended.
So why do you consider atheists hypocrites, by the way? Do you believe that they secretly worship some god when Christians aren’t watching?
You mean Pastaman?
Considering what a raging success Bibleman was to curbing unwholesome teenage activity and creating a nation of puritanical children who don’t have sex before marriage (as evidenced by the US ludicrously high teen birthrates as compared to the rest of the civilized world today) it would be a huge waste of money and likely just drive the kids who were forced to sit through it to evangelicalism in revolt against their atheist parents in much the same way that Bibleman probably helped drive many teens forced to suffer through it away from their faith in defiance of parents. Not the ultimate reason but I would imagine a part for some.
Its EvolutionMan. Spreading his message of intolerance and hatred for those who believe in Christianity. Watch as he literally pelts Christians over the head with Carl Sagan books like Hommie D Clown. Marvel as he stands outside a church telling people that their religion is a hollow lie. Stare in awe as he burns copies of the Bible in an open bon fire.
Is this what atheists do on your planet? BTW, how is Bizarroworld these days?
Bizarroworld is pretty good, man. How’s the Land of Intolerance doing for you?
So the dodos were just in god’s blindspot, then?
It’s not necessary. Bibleman is really his own worst enemy. Just look at the show. Oh man.
Dr. Decepto looks more like if Dr. Forester from MST3K got really sea sick XD
My church use to have Bible Man on VHS! xD
James Randi comes pretty close to that
I never saw this series. I ended up with “The Greatest Adventure Stories from the Bible” instead. Personally, I’ll take the Hanna-Barbara cartoon over this anyway.
Yeah, this show is corny and bland. It doesn’t inspire regular Christians live their lives any better, it just inspires (and arms) bigoted atheist to ridicule them even more.
My thoughts exactly.
Maybe the dumb atheists, but I just love laughing at the show. I mean, really, just look at it.
Oh man, I love PSA fails. Why not try your hand at one? Doesn’t matter if it’s already been done, you’ve got your own stile.
Dr. Insano looks yummy with long hair.
Amen to that! I could slather him in butter and eat ‘im alive! Haha ;)
I thought you were supposed to get a haircut Spoon?
No, he’s gonna grow his hair out like Nash.
He’ll end up looking like “It” from the Adams Family.
sexy long-haired nerd boys are hard to find- don’t ruin this for me :)
Hmh, you know, as a brought-up-in-the-fold Christian, this is STILL the only episode of this show I’ve ever seen. Interesting…
Best. Ending. EVER.
Child programming tends to capture the hearts and minds of children better when the adults who make it aren’t operating under the assumption that children are idiots.
Most bible related programming I grew up with when visiting the more religious side of the family was total crap but the old Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe (the cheesy ones made in Europe not the new ones) and the Voyage of the Dawntreader my grandma got and let me watch was stuff I really enjoyed and pushed the same overall story that these shows pushed. They were cheesy, sure, but so was Dragonstrike and I watched that a lot too.
If I were to choose a non spiritual/religious parralel it would be the difference between The Golden Compass (which is formulaic, intellect insulting tripe) versus Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (which was great and basically became an oft mentioned cult classic in the same vein as Monty Python in nerd circles in the US). There is a reason the latter is now a classic and the former a bad parody that barely tarnished the sheen of the late CS Lewis.
True, you can make decent religiously inspired children’s entertainment if you’re actually competent. There’s a lot of potential in the area, even some that I haven’t seen explored, I think. I think I prefer stuff that takes the ethical lessons and builds a story around those. Another good one is the whole hope thing where you show the protagonist go through hardships but stay strong in their heart and be rewarded in the end. That makes a good story. But not in the way that you just pray and God immediately makes all your problems go away like here. That’s bullshit and everybody who’s ever gone through tough times knows it.
As soon as I saw Dr. Insano mentioned, I waited it out for his segment and I’ve got to say, you did not disappoint Noah! By the by, your hair is looking more magnificent than ever!
I can’t say that I’m familiar with Bibleman but even if I had been, it would have pushed me to becoming a Satanist much sooner in my life. Really the only Christian-type movies I was familiar with as a kid were:
The old cartoon movie of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe; which I had NO idea was about Christianity until the first time I saw that Robot Chicken skit where they mention Asland being an allegory for Jesus. I just thought it was an entertaining fantasy movie where the talking lion was magically brought back to life through the power of Susan and Lucy’s tears!
And Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar.
Hey, guys? Can we NOT have a huge religious argument?
Because from what I’ve seen in the comments so far, that is a frightening possibility.
actually so far, the comments have been pretty civil *knock on wood*
The..They have good intentions. That has to mean something right? I remember hearing about this, but never actually watch it. Maybe that was for the best. I do remember liking a series called Adventures in Odyssey. Not Christian media is bad….just most of it.
i dont know.. i would think their intentions were something like: “how can we milk some money on the bible?”
Oddly enough, Adventures in Oddessey actually was fairly entertaining, even if it was FAR more obnoxious and preachy than most other Christian-centric kidvid.
Here’s to hoping Noah discovers their Dungeons and Dragons bashing episode..
im only confused as to why its dvd-r hell? this actually had a dvd release – i find the bibleman dvds in swap shops like value village all the time – i’ve even got the “live action” one done on a stage.
We had a VHS from this series (not sure if it included this episode or not) in my house when I was a kid. My parents desperately wanted my brother and I to prefer christian-themed entertainment, but it didn’t work. I don’t think we ever watched it, I just remember the box sitting with the other tapes. Even at 10 years old I recognized a pile of garbage when I saw that purple and gold suit.
thanks for being funny about it, and not fully assaulting those who read the bible, i found it quite funny, hell i even laughed alot.. keep up the funny work stay classy! and to my comrads who read stay classy too…
I remember getting a Bibleman Bible for Christmas..
I uhh… how the…. -.- I can’t even express how stupid this show looks with words…. and I’m kinda on Dr. Insanos side on this one at least science makes sense. If you are a christian I have nothing against that or any other religion for that matter, but when your religion gives rise to something like “bible man” I really think the people that are higher up on the ladder should really take stock at how stupid this type of thing makes you seem x.x
It’s frowned upon when people mock religion…yet with stuff like this it’s clear the mocking is done closer to home.
Why is it that people think think science and religion are opposed in some way and have to fight it out? The Catholic Church has been giving money to scientific research for CENTURIES – they have their own scientific institutes (Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Vatican Observatory, etc etc). Hell, the Catholic Church endorses the theory of evolution. Yes, really, and what’s more, the Vatican has never at any point in history *denied* the theory.
And that’s before we even get into how many universities, including Oxford (Now there is some irony, Pullman) and Cambridge, that have been built by the church.
If anyone doubts any of this, just google it.
Because of nutjobs, mostly. Every sane Christian I’ve ever met loves science and has no problem integrating it into their world view. They just believe that God is the one who created the universe and the laws of physics and whatnot.
The history being that the Church controlled academia until just recently, and silenced almost as many researchers as they funded. This, too, can be found by googling the history of the Church and the Seminary (Seminary for a time was used to refer to all places of higher education, back when they were all religious institutions.)
But let’s remember that The catholic church is made up of a great majority of groups and organizations, aside from the upper-topmost guys. For every Scholastic movement, there are also bookburning and anti sex-education organizations.
Religion only interferes when it comes to who controls the institutions of learning. For the matter of whether education is good or not, religion has almost no affect on what views a person will have, only what they’ll use to justify them.
If I were still a Christian, I’d be embarrassed. As it is though, I’m just laughing my ass off.
Eh, I’m Christian and I also laughed a whole lot.
In that case, good for you.
Rather than rant about how much I dislike the abramic faiths (mainly due to the abuse, hatred, hurtful stories, murderous threats of pain and insults I received from the book and the media…oh, and the fanatics), I’ll instead direct you to a website that tells the story of the bible using LEGO toys.
I never knew that Noah, a man who was meant to be kindly, actually CURSES his youngest son for the ‘crime’ of finding him drunk and naked in his tent, then telling his brothers to help cover him up so he wont get cold…..I’m sorry, what?!?!?!
If there are any running themes in the Bible, it’s that no matter how good and wise you are, you’re still going to fuck up sooner or later. Moses, David, and Solomon (just to name a few) had some rather inglorious ends to their stories because of it.
And if Job is any indication, you can do everything right and God will STILL have your family slaughtered and your shit wrecked just because he’s Jehova, bitch, and you’re not allowed to question it.
I swear it’s almost a given that whenever I see something “Pro-Christianity” in reality it’s actually “Anti-Education”. It’s depressing in this day and age that such anachronistic distrust of learning is even tolerated. Keep the Christianity, but for goodness sake, let’s get rid of these people trying to keep us stupid and afraid.
>Keep the Christianity
Surely that’s the root of the problem?
Even as an atheist I can say that most Christians are fortunately not that moronic. There are Christian scientists out there who don’t let religion compromise their work, and even get religious fulfillment out of scientific discovery.
and some people think I’m going to hell or I’m stupid for saying Science doesn’t disprove God or Science is not the root of all evil.
Even the worst anti-science nimwits are completely dependent on the works of scientific achievement so survive. If they represented the average Christian, we would already be dead from civil wars and starvation. Don’t assume that the vocal assholes represent the whole group, and don’t become a vocal asshole yourself to misrepresent yours.
Pointless bashing of religion doesn’t help atheists in any way. Focus on the idiots and hate-mongers.
I remember this well from a Christian book store in town when I was a kid. I never bought them because even at 5 years old I realized how bad these things must be. On behalf of Christians everywhere, let me apologize for this travesty.
Ending was worth it! XD XD XD
I cant wait until Spoony blows us all away with his Ultima 9 review, OR whatever it is he decides to bless us with next!
Sometimes when I watch these videos I cant help but wonder… Do people actually make that stuff of does it spontaneously forms itself at the places of the highest concentration of human stupidity.
Christianity is a dressed up version of common sense.
Christianity implies that all we see and know was created by a creator and at the end off the day this is correct.
If you go to the start of everything something did have to start it be in a chemical reaction or a fluke of nature or whatever but something caused the very very start of the thing that caused the start and common sense dictates that is your “god” he has to exist…. however
god may not be a living thinking being or even a being it is just the start and the fact we do not know what that start was gives way to the rumours and the speculation to turn it into an event that can shape the population to its will.
you present a forever unknown fact that cannot be proven and impose a pleasing idealogy mixed in with the opinions that you and your mates personally feel creates a utopia.
you then write some form of document explaining the ways in which your opinion makes the most sense and do it in a way that sounds credible which is without a doubt the product of the most intelligent people in the era as intelligence is merely the product of how much respect the person using it commands.
that’s why people who get told stuff by their parents or teachers believe it because it’s the person they believe to be right humanity does not often go to the effort to research the actual answers intelligence is more about who you believe at face value and what you remember which is why multiple books and authors publish work about the same topic everyone takes in knowledge from the individuals speaking it and trust the most.
Therefore most religion is damned to cycle around spreading among those who choose to believe what they have been told and each version and why converting people is never going to happen en masse as there is no longer the fear and the intelligent minority leading the masses as everyone can now seek and obtain knowledge.
Put bluntly it’s the media and shows like this that try to swindle the minds of people to ignore knowledge like science and try to stop people challenging the opinions of what they see in the world other than Christian techno babble that is isolating people from taking the religion seriously as it just comes off as uninspired repeating of a simpler time.
be a Christian or not personally i don’t mind either way but if your going to devote your life to religion or live a life forsaking it understand the proper origins of what you are forsaking.
Christianity when done right is not about what you believe about good and evil it’s better to use Christianity as a source to inspire you to do good and i do respect the religion for giving people a method to live their life doing good where they otherwise may be lost and confused like in the aftermath of a life tragedy or disability or the like.
Christianity and all religions are tools to try to persuade people to follow a certain method to a general utopia and the rivalry all stems from disagreements about what utopia even is
i hope that one day people will realise the path to a true utopia and an advancement of the human race will stem from being able to understand and empathise with people to the point the conflict eventually stops.
Hardcore die hard fanaticism is the one thing that breaks Christianity and all other religion apart from it’s intended goals
All gods throughout history (not just christianity) have never been anything more than metaphors for the unknown and utilized socially as metaphors for political apathy.
Oh Doctor Insano. You have to do it to your mouth to. Trust me.
New post for a seconds long cameo?
What if Spoony isn’t putting out new stuff because he’s waiting for his hair to be a certain length?
Spoony’s spent his time getting footage of and taking notes of Ultima 9. He’s editing footage he just shot. New stuff’s coming out, calm down.
Your profile picture is amazing.
Thanks dude. :)
Spoony always posts anything that he’s a part of. However small his role may be.
I’m watching this and thinking: “Why is this on the Spoony page at all? Spoony is not even in it, only Dr. Insano.. I’m retarded”
I’d say it’s because of “Dr Decepto” and how he looks like Dr Insano, Spoony’s most popular alter-ego’s
Is it just me or are both Noah and Brad losing weight like bloody crazy? Trying to look good down at the beach much?
I know Brad lost some weight for the Snob movie and Noah had food poisoning a few weeks back and lost several pounds then. That might be what you’re noticing.
12:05 The bible does have musical numbers actually. They are called psalms.
I myself have been asking difficult questions about the Catholicism to which I converted nearly fifteen years ago, mainly because I see…questionable materials which I try to question or just call out. You might see some of such posts if you were to look at my profile–for several reasons I am seriously working at slowly giving up on on it. The point is that I do not want to get into a religious debate at a time when I am asking questions and looking for truth wherever it is found. I will say that I still believe in Jesus Christ as the savior of souls and the Prince of Peace–and leave it at that.
Anyway, from the first frames shown, I knew this would be dorky–but I didn’t think it would be THIS dorky! I commend Jones for making poking fun at the video itself instead of the Scriptures (which I admit demand very nuanced exegesis). It is indeed a silly man wearing a silly costume acting silly. The cameo from Doctor Insanso was a great treat!
Good to see that perspective. Honestly, even if you are inclined towards what this show teaches, can you honestly say it does it well?
Though I’m surprised Jones didn’t bring up Joshua. You want over the top ultra-violence, that book has em all beat. God commanding entire tribes to suicidal war, kings being beheaded, slaughter of entire cities including the livestock save for one prostitute, good stuff.
Just to clarify, I meant giving up on posting to Catholic websites, not the Catholic Faith. No, I will not give up something so important. Instead, I will continue seeking truth as patiently as I can.
Dr. Insano can cut a mean promo!
“When I’ve got is science on the mind,
I run and fetch my Bible just in time!”You make me so sad…
You have a blue screen now?
I was SO happy to see this review. A few years ago, I’d noticed that the Bibleman show was playing on some channel in the evening, so I gave a few episodes a watch. Oh god, MST3K is not even necessary; the show is hilarious enough on its own.
“Of course I know the scriptures. I’m Bibleman!”
Religion has created many weird things. The Shinto Naked festival in which one man is shaved and naked and is chased by semi naked men since touching him will bring good luck. Thailand Buddhist priest sometimes bless new cars or bicycles. Bibleman was made. Who cares what anyone else believes?
Christian priests also bless cars, factories and weapons of war all the time. That’s pretty common practice in most religions.
It’s still fucking weird.
Just when i thought there couldn’t be a worse superhero than Reb Brown’s Captain America…
Stalin? Oh, you mean of the USSR? The country that had an OFFICIAL STATE CHURCH, which was Eastern Orthodox Catholicism? Or are you referring to another Stalin, perchance?
Hey even if.
The USSR was only secular in that that it didn’t believe in god it was still extremely dogmatic and centered around worship of goverment authorities.
Stalin was basically god there.
Just putting it out there.
Eh, all that cult of personality stuff pretty much died with Stalin. Khrushchev and Brezhnev pretty much deStalinized everything, though Lenin was left as a god like figurehead, and he still is worshiped as such by many here, even those who despised the Soviet government.
The Communist system is a religion in itself, especially in its Soviet incarnation. It requires people to have faith in the system and the dogmas of the Party, even when your eyes tell you that things aren’t how they say they are. Whole fields of science were banned in the USSR because they didn’t fit in the Communist ideology, including Darwin’s theory of evolution. They had quite a lot in common with Christian fundamentalists, actually.
Well, its Russian Orthodox, we have our own Patriarch, different from the Greeks and such. ‘Eastern Orthodox’ is like saying ‘Protestant’ The Soviet church was a shell and the Soviet leaders were cronies of the party. Most churches were made into things by the government like the Museum of Atheism or into mundane things like storage building for opera houses, if not destroyed. The state was officially atheist and while religion was ‘tolerated’ (Stalin did this in the war to encourage more people to fight harder) you had to declare yourself an atheist to start the path of being a party member. So if you wanted to be anything in life you could not be religious.
Meh; it’s preachy, but it doesn’t even hold a candelabrum to the extremely, prejudicially, pompous arrogance that you find coming from the Jack Chick comic strips, or the Westboro Baptist Church. On a scale between “Highway to Heaven” and “Left Behind,” as far as offensively bastardizing beliefs in the media are concerned, I’d put this show on par with “Touched By an Angel.”
So Bibleman’s logo has the downward-pointed purple triangle of the gay pride movement, and he hangs out with small children unsupervised? Jack Chick was right! No place is safe from them!
So….. Brad Jones is not an atheist or what? Thought he was smarter… oh well, it seems like I’m the only one born in a reasonable family these days… I once was told that the majority of people on this planet are religious, I was stunned..
Because not being religious = intelligent? You are an idiot.
“Because not being religious = intelligent?” Believing in a Jewish zombie god that rules people’s lives and line of reasoning through a loophole sounds pretty silly
I wasn’t promoting Christianity or anything. What I meant was his logic was way off and kinda stupid. Intelligence is measured simply by an individual’s natural inquisitiveness and drive to seek knowledge. Religion does nothing more than giving a person a set of morals to live by which they choose what morals to follow. In short I was calling him an idiot because his logic was dumb and needlessly offensive.
Agreed 100% these modern atheists are more dogmatic and judgmental than most Christians on the internet. And I’m an atheist, I just despise the post-Dawkins smugness displayed by these people, it’s shameful.
And yet none of the internet atheists are voting to take away gay rights…so I guess I’m more then willing to hear them bash on religion all day long until I get my rights back
So lets fight intolerance with intolerance? That’s progressive. -_-
It is at this point that I would like to remind everyone in this thread that this is the internet, and OP is likely to be a troll. However…
Tim, tolerance of intolerance is in its self intolerance. Not to fight back against racists and homophobes would be the same as joining them.
If I’m going to insanely argue semantics…
Intolerance of intolerance is also intolerance. So you can either be intolerant of intolerance, or intolerant of tolerance.
So your screwed either way. Pick you poison. I would suggest siding with people who don’t commit hate crimes. But that’s just me.
Basicly, now you just trolled the troll?
Post-Dawkins smugness? Seriously? This has nothing to do with smugness or believing in what Dawkins said about anything. I’m Atheist because I never grew up with a religious background/history and only after my own observations, experiences and and having thought about things did I remain so. It has nothing to do with high-profile Atheists or scientists. Get over yerself.
So some annoying internet commenters mean that all atheists are smug, dogmatic and judgemental, and by extension this somehow justifies religious bigotry? Oh yes, you can find idiots aplenty who are smug about their athiesm, but assuming that to be the norm is just about as justified as claiming that Fred Phelps represents the average person of Christian faith.
Common sense man, common sense!
I never said you were promoting anything.
Fair enough, I apologize for any misunderstanding.
What did you think I ment you dimsniggit? Or did you just reply to stand up for your imaginary world? (Which we all have and keep secret, I dream of unicorns and ponies that can fly) how can words be offensive to you? I’m not shooting a handgun at you. “Religion does nothing more than giving a person a set of morals to live by” then it is not religion, it is morality, which you learn about many other places than in a bible or church. What is next, you call science a religion?
My brother is devoutly Jewish, and just got into medical school on a scholarship. That’s takes intelligence to do.
Medical school, can’t really call medical doctors, scientists. They are supposed to be walking dictionaries who can come up with a diagnosis on the spot to save lives. It has nearly only to do with the human body… I think we are using the wrong words here, intelligence and idiot are wrong words. Smart people use the term “idiot” when people don’t think about their reality (being intellectual), because when you do, you are no longer religious… sooo your brother is an idiot. Thanks for your reply, peace and care
Yeah, this is probably a better example of memory than it is creativity or any other type of intelligence.
I mean, he’s very smart in other ways. I just haven’t provided evidence of that in my previous post.
15% of the members of the National Academy of Scientists, a collection of the greatest minds in the US, are religious. So, regardless of how silly the concept of religion is, to assert that stupidity is a prerequisite for accepting said concept is empirically false, otherwise that percentage would be 0. If a scientist doesn’t let his/her personal beliefs interfere with his/her career in discovery and uncovering the truths of our universe, what’s the harm in him/her having a religion?
I suspect that believing in a personal god is more of an emotionally-driven action rather than an intellectually-driven one. And you know what? So long as religious people don’t try to force their beliefs on others, we atheists shouldn’t force our worldview on them. Agree to disagree, and move on. The type of judgmental attitude you have is the exact same intolerance exhibited by evangelical theists, and I’ll bet that you’ve lambasted them in the past for it.
Yeah, that’s 15 percent out of out the outnumbering 85 who aren’t religious.
Just because you’re a scientist, does not mean you’re guaranteed to have common sense. Why do you think the term “mad scientist” exists?
Lambasted? I tend to stay away from religious scenes or at least, I try to. And while I have been bothered by evangelists, I don’t get in their faces and tell them to shut up while spitting at them. I just smile and nod and when it’s over, I chuck away whatever pamphlet they give me in the trash can and that’s the end of it.
What’s wrong with having a religion? Do you even have to ask? Read a history book and you’ll know why.
Why do multiple religions and exist and if your religion is “the right one”, why is it banned in public schools? You would think that, being religious is the “one true way”, there would be no doubt in mind it would be a mandatory class, but apparently it isn’t.
Again, assuming that a religious person doesn’t bother you, what is wrong with them being religious? That was the premise of what I was saying; I’m well aware of the horrible things that has occurred throughout history as a result of religion. But I’m also well aware that making broad generalizations about a group of people due to the actions of the most infamous members is bigoted and intellectually lazy.
And, once more, the point wasn’t that the 15 percent is a large amount (because it’s not); the point was it is insipid to claim that being religious automatically means one has deficiencies in intelligence. Also, from what I understand, the term “mad scientist” has never been applied to a scientist who is religious, so congrats for failing to make a coherent point.
“Why do multiple religions and exist and if your religion is ,the right one’, why is it banned in public schools? You would think that, being religious is the ‘one true way’, there would be no doubt in mind it would be a mandatory class, but apparently it isn’t.”
Why the hell are you asking me this? I said I was an atheist. I just happen to lack the compulsion to treat people as faceless components in hive-minded groups rather than individuals.
Religion, especially the most prominent one, Christianity, has a history of promoting intolerance, bigotry, slavery, ignorance and irresponsibility. Any of the good things that it may promote or so very easily overshadowed and outnumbered by the horrible things that it teaches.
If you really wanna see why some people have such an attitude with religion, just read the entire Bible itself, start to finish. That’s how theists tend to lose their faith. Otherwise, they twist it around to keep it.
Sorry, but as Kaihedgie has already touched on, doesn’t that stat just disprove what you’re saying? If 96% of the general population are religious, but only 15% of the National Academy of Scientists are so (and BTW, out of that 15%, how many are deists or pantheists, which are far and away different from personal God believers), doesn’t that show that more intelligence = less religious beliefs?
“So, regardless of how silly the concept of religion is, to assert that
stupidity is a PREREQUISITE for accepting said concept is empirically
false, otherwise that percentage would be 0.”
You know, it’s usually a good idea to read a post before responding to it. Just saying.
You sound like you don’t live in a very religious area.
Let me describe it for you. I live in Texas, a state where you find religious clubs all over the place, where they do XYZ while reading scripture. Have you heard of the Saint John Luke Basket Weaving Club? Stuff like that is everywhere in Texas.
And when you tell them your an atheist, they look at you like you’ve got a third arm:
“What the hell is this? That only exists in theory, or somewhere in Europe, right? Oh well, I’ll tell him that he’ll eventually find the right path. This is probably a temporary thing anyway. He’ll find God soon enough!”
At least all these religious organizations they aren’t as aggressive as the one or two Atheist Clubs in every college. I would rather someone hand me a flyer then get on a megaphone when I’m trying to eat lunch. College sucks sometimes.
I go to a branch college up in ohio. It’s pretty cool because you get all types up here. I have friends who are atheist, muslim, agnostic, buddist and christians like me. Everyone is actually really respectful about these matters up here. It really teaches a lesson in tolerance, that everyone believes different things but still deserves the same common respect from their fellow man. I kinda went of on a tangent there but it sounds like your problem George is that you probably go to a main campus. lol
You have much to discover my friend… much.
Lies of the Bible or the Quran or any other “Holy book” are very comforting.
Wouldn’t it be nice to die assured you will be screwing 72(or something) virgins or bliss eternally alongside a fellah like Jesus?
Ofcourse it would be. People buy into this hook-line and sinker because it makes them feel good inside and it makes their fear of the upcoming death go away, because why shoul you care?
You will go to heaven…Or hell so you won’t really”die”.
People who are either naive or afraid will accept thoose lies and roll with them. It’s sad that most of the people in the world are like that.
People are afraid to die? Nothing new really, however I cried when I was told I was going to die when I was 7 or something. Now I know that life is better when you don’t consider you are going to die, and I don’t need religion to do that. Sooo people are still 7?
You can be smart and religious. O_o
I discovered that the dumbest people on the internet are often not fanatic christians, but people who call themselves “atheists” just so they can feel superior and be arrogant towards other people.
Name me one professor in physics, biology or chemisty who is NOT an atheist, and professors in the southern states, doesn’t count. Maybe you’re a professor?
Einstein was a pantheist who didn’t believe in a personal God and thought the Bible was “childish”. He was the furthest thing from a Christian. Try again.
Einstein was a pantheist which makes him not an atheist – see the original question posed. He made it very exact: “…name one (scientist) who isn’t an Atheist…”
The obvious inference was that Einstein was your typical theist. He wasn’t.
True, but then I dislike the term “typical” because, for us Americans, typical tends to be Christian. With a population approaching seven billion only one billion are Christians and of the many who believe in God only some are religious. A spiritual man is different from an atheist, even if both dislike religion.
You will find many still living there. Not to be confused with Christian scientists, of course, who do the creationism business, but many come from different walks including biochemistry and physics from the list provided of those still alive.
For a specific example (for those who don’t want to read a link) then I would point out Martin Nowak who is a professor at Harvard University. He is an evolutionary biologist and mathematician, amusingly enough. If you don’t like him I am sure you will find another on the list in the link provided. Cheers.
Lol you actually did it. Ok here’s another one then, anything outside precious US,
Check Italy. Many there are still christians because they see god as the reason, and that something as carefully made as atoms and such can only be the creation of a god.
And before we knew about quarks, some people said that inside the atom is God. I don’t know if you just used exposition there or that Italien professors really believe in a creator.
Freeman Dyson was a British born scientist as was the late Sir Robert Boyd. Britain is very similar to the US but hardly the US. I am not trying to be snarky, mind you, just making a point that you can’t make collective statements like that and expect not to be challenged.
I was not expecting people to challenge it
You arrogant moron. You’re obviously not too smart because you’re completely smug and devoid of tact.

Isn’t it possible to be an atheist and not be anti-religious?
Yes, it is called to be agnostic. I suppose the superios message is: If you want to do anything connected to science, it is a good idea to push aside religion as it will only make science harder to understand. Basicly it weights on science that there is people who should never be scientists, who are scientists.
Agnostic is not the same thing as atheism. You can be agnostic with a more atheistic bent, but they’re not the same thing.
You are lumping all religious people together into one big group, which is offensive and ignorant (something you already admitted to by saying you were shocked that most the world was religious when told). In a way, your upbringing wasn’t so different from that of a bible belt Christian who thinks that gays are dangerous because they have sex with kids or that atheists are dangerous because they worship Satan. It is merely a lack of understanding so I don’t fault you for not knowing better.
I like how I got 5 replies, and none asnwered the question… anyways it seems as it is just “in” to appear religious, even though you know it is a load, and still reason. Confused and interested.
Dude I wasn’t bashing agnostics or promoting faith. I’m just calling you out on your needlessly offensive comment in which you come off as a know-it-all douchebag.
I was just posting what I thought, and there is mostly a good reason why I think some things. Please prove the opposite of what I wrote.
I gotta ask, am I the only one who was raised Christian who didn’t grow to resent religion? Heck, was I the only Christian who didn’t get brainwashed or taught intolerance and ignorance? I mean, the most pushing I got was on abstitance, and even then I still learned about contraceptives.
No, you’re not the only one. Far from it, it’s just bigots and atheists are a lot more vocal.
So you went from complaining about the hypocritical, bigoted, hateful atheists to “bigots AND atheists”. Why don’t you just come out of the closet and admit you don’t like atheists period? You seem to be the hateful hypocrite bigot here.
… Because I DON’T hate all atheist. I only attack those who attack me. I’ve even made it clear that I only dislike those who are bigots, the type who are overly vocal about their non-beliefs. There are atheist who LITERALLY came into my church yelling “God is a lie”. There are atheist who LITERALLY put up advertisements at Christmas time insulting christianity. I know and get along with many atheist, and I did not hold them accountable for what these bigots did or said. However, so many of these bigots will hold me responsible and ridicule me for things that westboro said and offer it up as “proof” that my beliefs are immoral. I have every right to dislike the atheist who are constantly harassing me, and just because you’re not smart enough to see that it’s possible for me to only dislike certain atheist based ENTIRELY on their actions towards me, that doesn’t mean I’m a “hateful hypocrite bigot”.
So you hate hate/dislike atheists for doing that? Vice versa, I don’t dislike religious people for doing the same thing, I talk with them. Maybe you should practice karate, instead, kung fu doesn’t work. Try it!
” I only attack those who attack me.” eye for a eye, makes the whole world blind -Gandhi
Not really the spirit of Kung Fu is it?
So, that’s it?? One guy yelled at your church (how did you know he was an atheist) and you saw a billboard (which BTW could not be that offensive if it was in public) and these are your best examples of the intolerant atheist plague currently infiltrating this country? Well, times that by 10,000 and welcome to my world! I can’t tell you how many times someone has told me I’ll be tortured forever for not sharing their beliefs. Now that’s some real intolerance there. And billboards?? I’m sure Christian billboards outnumber atheist ones by a 1,000 to 1 ratio easily. If these are your examples of intolerance, then cry me a river of alligator tears, Squire.
How many times has christians insulted you for being atheist? I don’t know. How many times have I insulted you for being an atheist. ZERO, motherfucker. How many times have you insulted me because I’m a christian? Enough times to make you a asshole. We’re both intolerant. You’re intolerant against christians regardless of their character or actions, I’m intolerant against assholes regardless of their beliefs.
I haven’t insulted you at all. Christians have insulted me tons for not being a Christian. I just called you out on your hypocrisy regarding your supposed hypocrisy about others. You’re the one flying off the handle tossing out vulgar terms like motherfucker and asshole. You also seem to be in denial because your examples for your unreasoning hate towards atheists are incredibly weak. If I took your position regarding religious billboards, I would be foaming at the mouth in a clocktower with a sniper rifle by now. There’s a massive Christian billboard that blares out Christian propaganda at 6 million candlelight power here at the I-17 that I guarantee would dwarf any atheist one. For some reason though billboards and the 1st amendment don’t drive me out of my mind like they seem to do to you. Anyhoo, you should really look in the mirror before you call ANYONE intolerant. Also, I would suggest you remove “Shaolin” from your handle since you haven’t a clue as to what it represents with “PotKettleBlack”. It’s much more fitting.
… So a pro-christian billboard is the same thing as an anti-athiest one? You won’t tolerate a pro-christian billboard, but if anyone ever bothered with a peaceful pro-athiest billboard then I would tolerate it. I have equal problems with anti-christian and anti-athiest billboards, the latter of which I have never seen or heard of. You’re not smart enough to realized the difference. You’re entire world view is based on hatred and prejudice (again, not because you’re an atheist, it’s because you’re an asshole.)
Also, my “reasoning towards atheist being incredibly weak” were because I sited one or two extreme examples, not everything that comes my way every single day. You simply made up a fake figure (1000 to 1 my ass) and ran with your lies, as bigots typically do.
I also like the fact that even though I specifically said that I am only offended by atheist propaganda that specifically targets and insults christians only justifies me not getting along with the specific atheist who committed the act, you’ve used pro-christian messages that make no mention of atheism at all as a potential excuse for mass undiscriminating murder. You see hated where there is none and hypocritically ignore the hatred in yourself.
Well, the site apparently ate my comment. To paraphrase, your accusations that I hate all atheist is false and your fishing for arguments is pathetic.
The only one here cruisin’ for an e-bruisin’ here is you, Liarboy. “Ate my comment” my snow white tuccus. Maybe you should learn some tolerance and honesty from your Shaolin/Christian Temple Sifu-Pastor.
To be fair, when you get raised on hardcore hellfire and brimstone in an area where you can follow signs to the nearest church that handles rattlesnakes as part of the Sunday service, it does tend to make one a bit louder than the crowd when you come out of it.
And I don’t resent religion, or even Christians, just Christianity. Even then, I only seem to target it quite a bit because, well, I was so close to it and still live in an area where it’s by far the biggest dog on the block.
That probably explains a lot of it. Since I’ve grown up in a suburb of Chicago that is very diverse, so I probably had a more moderate upbringing. In fact, my mom’s reasoning for having me and my brothers into CCD was more for tradition and comunity reasons.
it all depends on who you are me cynical but i barly went after i was 10 my cousins went to church all the time and 3 out of 4 are potheads one is all fire and brimstone
You are going too easy on the subject, like a stoner does with life. Hehe my friend, you are basicly saying that you never needed religion, and never thought about religion. Well, then why be religious? You are not religious, but you were raised christian.
I can only thank you for not replying to my comments then, it must kind of prove that the people who did are religious. So, why did you even make this comment, if you knew those people where religious. I believe you are in a sarcastic way trying to say that those people are like you, when they aren’t, as they are religious. You could see this yourself, when you looked at yourself and them. But you still made this comment. See the logic here?
Well, I guess I was just looking for answers.
I guess your right, I’m not exactly religous. I mean, I do believe there is a God (perhapse not exactly in the Abrahamic sense, but that there is something more to the universe) and I do the whole lent thing (though more for self control reasons), but I don’t really go to church that often. Although, I do occasionally do church based charity work (usually volantior work at the homeless center).
I guess I’m just trying to figure out where everyone’s coming from and how my experiances with the church is diffrent from everybody else’s. Mind if I ask yours?
You believe there is more to the universe, but you don’t know what. There IS probably more to the unvierse, scientists are trying to figure it out and also where everyone come from. Where the difference is, is that religion makes up that “more to the universe” thing instead of research it, therefore you are not religious. You say you are trying to figure out where we all come from, well then science must be interesting for you, because filosophy wont work on that. Really from what you have told you could just aswell be a scientist also doing charity in red cross or something, why does any of that have to do with religion and religious buildings?
“Mind if I ask yours?” animals with developed brains need comfort and to be soothed, some more than other. I don’t need it that much, so I use my time elsewhere.
That was the funniest TV show ever made….
great, now i have the theme to charles in charge stuck in my head
Thought there was a serious lack of Charles in Charge references but Spoony saved it in the end.
Okay, let’s have Dr. Insano fight Bibleman in a Tables, Ladders, & Chairs match. I’m sure Bibleman would think he’d have the advantage, since chairs are good to sit in while you pray weakly for divine help, but I think Dr. Insano may have a reach advantage with his robotic grabby arms as well as being able to punch a religious nutjob in the face, with SCIENCE of course.
Or he can shout “You sonofabitch! I’ll punch you in the fucking soul! You fucking asshat!” and Soul-punch Bibleman, taking him out with a single move.
In what way was it different from any other bible?
Nice to see that it only took one day for this comment section to devolve into bickering about religion. So who would like to place bets before the people who get offended that he uploaded this instead of Ultima IX show up?
I just wanna see caused so much rage that’s apparently equal or greater than The Source.
I warned you! I warned you all! Oh but nobody listens to Ol’ Georgie! He’s just paranoid.
WELL WHOSE LAUGHING NOW!!! *breaks down into tears*
*Gives George a hug*
You’re surprised that anything that treads on a touchy subject, namely religion, devolved into bickering? On the internet? Really.
Good gravy, man, if you went to Yahoo news’s comment sections you’d probably pull a Scanners at it. They can take a story about a weather pattern and turn into an argument about Obama’s birth certificate. We got it good here, baby.
No, I’m so much surprised that the comments went that way, but I’m surprised at how fast the comments devolved to this point. You would think it would take at least a couple days, not a few hours. Even though, we do have it good when you look at the comments on Brad’s site. I love the guys who say that if Brad isn’t atheist then they aren’t fans anymore.
Please give one example where a person said that they wouldn’t be Brad’s fan if he wasn’t an atheist. Just one. It didn’t happen.
“Ahh americans with their ridiculus obsession with religion (there are
worse countries of course). Brad you better be an atheist or I will not
have any respect for you.”- Casper 5/22/2012 4:27 a.m.
Go check his site, the whole thing has become an even larger bickering match over religion than this site has. Which I’m not getting into the religious debate with you because reading through the comments you have proven yourself to be an intolerant asshole who thinks everybody who thinks differently than you lives in their own little fantasy world.
You can sit back and accept people for doing stupid things, even though they are not stupid. Even as a brony (who is supposed to like people even though they are different, which I still do), isn’t it then irresponsable of me to let that happen? I was lucky enought to get parents who where reasonable, namely my father who is doctor in physics, but if I wasn’t lucky, I would probably be closed minded about some things, like what religion is doing. Who would pull me out of it? I have learned to reason, now I think for a life time. It was a bit cheat, that is the moto of many scientists.
” everybody who thinks differently than you lives in their own little fantasy world.” that is exactly what they do, and I do too, fantasize about dragons and magic. Good thing we have science to explain the real world we live in, welcome to Earth my friend.
LOL, typical knee-jerk reaction. If you think that guy is going to burn Brad in effigy because he might not be an atheist, you ARE living in a little fantasy world. You know, the same world you inhabit where Spoony is a hard worker and wild roaming gangs of atheists beat up Christians with Carl Sagan books. Anyhoo, you and your atheist hating buddies here are the intolerant hypocrites here. I depart with this – If you don’t want to get into an argument with me, then quit responding to my posts.
“I love the guys who say that if Brad isn’t atheist then they aren’t fans anymore.”
yes, beacuse we would all love to see a stupid person in disguise. Actually we enjoy the other thing around; a talented and smart person being stupid, a clown.
“They can take a story about a weather
pattern and turn into an argument about Obama’s birth certificate. We
got it good here, baby. ” Wait, that actually happened? I know the majority of are pretty damn stupid, but you can’t be serious…right?
Oh, Cthulhu this was the funniest DVD-R Hell I’ve seen!
I recall hearing of this crappy series back when I was a kid! I’m so glad my mom and da(and later on my aunt and uncle) who all raised me at some point were laxed or agnostic in the religious department so I was NEVER forced into churches or to watch mind numbing propaganda like this! The only family members of mine that tried were my grandma and my other was a distant aunt and uncle who nearly lived in the church they went to…
Ok, is it just me or does the later on Bibleman armor design look like the Hourglass armor from that parody movie Superhero Movie!? I’m not the only person that saw that movie right!?
This series might not be as “hateful” as Rock It’s Your Decision, but I still see this as a harmful propaganda piece designed to make children stupider! It’s literally telling kids in it a few times to not listen to their teachers(or anybody) when it comes to stuff like science, history, and politics! And all this from a guy if I recall right was a junky only about 5-6 years before these videos were being made!?
I had a RoboCop toy too as a kid but it wasn’t a movie figure it was one from the 90s cartoon show because it was I think the Space themed RoboCop because he was solid White(There were like 4 of them in these toyline a Blue one for water, a Red one for like volcanoes or some BS like that, and a regular Grey one) with a missal-launcher for an arm! It had a removable helmet and chest plate! I watched the RoboCop movies heavily edited for TV as a kid! I watched the cartoon shows and the live-action series later on! I wish they’d release those on DVD someday! I miss those old toned down cheesy series based on a hard R-rated movie franchises they made back then!! It’d be like if they were to make a Prometheus cartoon series after the movie comes out!!
Is it sad I think Barnie the Dinosaur had better child-actors in it and most of them were like half the age of the kids in Bibleman and most were physically and mentally disabled!?
You know what’s funnier than this? An is still a religious propaganda series? The Middle Eastern Micky Mouse knockoff shows you can find on YouTube with subtitles! They talk about nothing but how evil Western Culture is and how it must be destroyed! AWESOME!!
So this is what Ozymandias did after Watchmen
Yikes, Spoony, please get a haircut! I love you hair, but it’s getting rather long.
Unless this is preparation for you cosplaying as Loki, which you hinted at in another video recently… then I want to see the footage!! :-)
I think Spoony’s long hair is awesome and sexy! (But most guys look better with longish hair IMO). But I also REALLY want to see him cosplay Loki.
+1. On both counts.
Did you know that Loke’s real name in nordic mythology is Loki? oh you said Loki… my bad.
Ick. This was shown during bible study when I was a kid. Luckly the people holding the classes knew enough to know it was stupid. Of course, these are the same people who told me that asking too many questions would send me to hell. I was kicked out when I commented that only God could send someone to hell. Apparently bible thumpers don’t like being called on their bullshit.
God I love DVR Hell
I remember seeing this at the Christian Bookstore whenever I’d go in for music and stuff. This… this thing is stupid. I saw the comics for it and they were really, really dumb.
Does whatever a Bible can.
Quotes a verse, any size
Spoiler alert, Jesus dies ( yeah I drew a blank with this verse)
Look out, here comes bibleman
Is he strong?
Listen bub, (I can stay that and still get into Heaven, right?)
He’s got holy wine for blood.
Does whatever a bible can.
prays for his suffering to be over.
LOOK OUT! Its Bibleman!
Oh God, I remember this series, too…
Oh don’t forget the part where god showed little love for children when he sent two bears to maul around 50 kids to death for laughing at a bald head
The shouldn’t gloss over this part. No wonder kids don’t have respect for the eldery!
So being old means you need respect? yeah yeah, being old implifies that you are wiser and kids should listen to you right? What if you are an old tatooed, smoking, drinking, lying and unreasonable stuck up, should kids respect you?
If the kids are tatooed, smoking, drinking, lying and unreasonable too: Why not XD ?!
Actually interestingly enough, in the bible Elisha (the bald man) was a prophet of God in the old testament, basically they were the “Jesus Light” they had the power by God to perform miracles. A good use of this power was when he helped the widow of a former prophet Obadia to pay of a debt she owed to a powerful family. All she had of value left was a small container of oil. Elisha told her to barrow as many pots as she could, and then start pouring the oil into the pots. The story continues that the original container of oil did not run dry until the final borrowed pot was filled. She then was able to sell all the oil to pay of the debt and also had a supply left over to keep her family financially secure.
However since this is a man, not actually Jesus, when he cursed the boys, it may have been a slight on his fault, a failing of his own spirit. God basically said “Hey, you cursed them, now I have to fulfill it.”:
Or they could have been stupid, and in their jeering at him roused a bear into attacking them from all the noise they were making…
I’ve never seen a single episode of this series.
Hahahaha, oh wow ,I actually remember this!
Oh man, between this and the Mister T’s Be Somebody video CS did a few weeks back, am I the only one in the big wide internet who’s having old school Seanbaby flashbacks?
Can’t ever get enough of Dr. Insano
I’m a proud protestant christian….. and I think that Bibleman is both stupid and redundant to our beliefs. (Our = Christians)
I see your redundant, and raise you a misinformative. Unless there’s a part of the Bible that says you should never do anything to solve your own problems, and just wait for God to bail you out while you twiddle your thumbs in humility.
Damn, I got that same Robocop -toy. Brings back memories.
My initial reaction? “Holy shit!”. Yeah… sounds about right.
I think this video proves that no matter what you believe, ROBOCOP IS AWESOME!!
I’ll buy that for a dollar!
I seriously wonder why that phrase hasn’t become a meme yet.
It was for a while then it died; they even had a game called Smash TV for the Super Nintendo where the Host would say that line, among others.
I was, unfortunately, raised on things like this. See also: McGee & Me and Secret Adventures. My childhood is a dark and terribly-acted place.
Your cameo at the end made me spit water all over my monitor, and I’m being totally serious. I hope you’re happy, because it was AMAZING.
Power to you, I know alot of people who couldn’t escape it, poor souls
this is an incredibly shitty t.v. show. i love it. eventhough it’s another filler post (however, good) of NOT Spoony stuff.
Supposedly, Ultima 9 is coming tonight. It had better get here quick. I’m getting desperate. I actually clicked that Johnny Oldschool link to the right. The horror, the horror…
He’s actually pretty good. What the hell is he doing in a sidebar advert?
15 hours later and…*sigh* Its still not here yet bro.
“Oreo has suddenly gotten very sick so I’ve taken her to the pet hospital.” – Spoony’s Twitter. 11:22 PM – 23 May 2012.
:( Being a dog parent can be wrenching sometimes. They’re like children except you can’t explain to them what’s happening.
I remember playing Ultima 9, and if Spoony’s entire review is him just shaking his head and sighing sadly, I wouldn’t blame him.
Did the mother gene just pop up in Noah? “Im 30 and have no offspring, what should I do?”
We are gonna see Noah in his next video with curlers in his hair and a frilly pink nightgown.
Do you SEE what happens when you let a man grow his hair out?! Damn you horny fangirls and your corrupting ways!
I clop to Noah… haha it’s funny right?
That was supposed to be in context to the fan girls who like Noah’s long hair. They’ve corrupted him and now he gone into fem-mode.
And damn you for making me look up what “clopping” is.
Fun fact for Brad. Psalms – were songs. XDD. So – yes. The Bible did have musical numbers!
Dont talk about religion, politics or criss crossing murders with a madman.
You are absolutely right sir!
Wait. Exactly, what religion are you and Brad?
He’s a Deacon of the Exploitologist Orthodoxy.
Noah Antwiler is must likely an agnostic observer. He sit and observe the world and it’s craziness, without inticipating. Clever move.
The only sane move really, when you’re on the Internet.
There are few topics as fruitless, pointless, painful and hate-inspiring than that of “Theist/Atheist” on the Internet; it’s shit that could go on forever.
Amen (pun intended).
So being passive is sane? A zombie…. nvm, Noah is not participating in anything really.
What? Did you turn into Squall?
Or did you just edit all your posts into ellipses to avoid further commentary?
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………*Looks around, noticing the birds chirp and the computer fan making a faint constant noise* Silence is gold indeed.
Not sure about Brad, but Spoony’s obviously a Madscientologist.
A scientologist? Are you insulting the man?
In one video review, Spoony specifically stated he doesn’t believe in the supernatural at all. As for Brad, couldn’t care less. Is he religious? Is Phelous? Is anyone I like on the net? As long as they stay funny they can be Wiccans for all I care.
Maybe I’m a complete idiot here, but if you don’t need religion in your life or to reason, then why are you religious?
“Why did you take on a pink shirt?”
“I don’t know really… but I will defend it with all my power and might, even though it is unsignificant to anyone. If someone say it is not exactly a pretty looking shirt, I will call them ignorant, because why is it not a pretty looking shirt? What do I care”
Kind of get the point here?
The difference between religion and a pink shirt is that religion is significant to the believer. It contains rules to live life by, and is often a huge moral guide in the early years of life. People aren’t going to respond well to “Oh by the way everything you believed in since birth is a lie, and your also stupid for believing it”.
You usually can’t argue with religion, no matter what your argument is. I say this as a fellow atheist who (when I was younger) tried to convince other believers to question their faith, with almost no success, because they feel too strongly to even approach the debate.
So, now that I’ve explained why this debate is futile, can we just stop?
So you are saying that the world is fine with people doing their day job, maybe even improving the world we live in aswell? Yeah of course, but would you just be happy to live your whole life without asking any questions about your excistence? I wouldn’t.
I see your point, and why argue with random people on the internet with either no significance to our society… or they could be mentors for other people like a professor. But the chance is too small to debate, and thanks to you I realised.
So my super sarcastic comments wont change anything? Probably not, it is just fun to piss off people who reply stupidly. Leave my comment alone! and answer the question instead. The debate is never futile, some people need a truck load of input to even consider.
Peace and care!
For what it’s worth, philosophy courses usually teach that such arguments aren’t just futile - they’re literally impossible. Whether you’re for or against the truth of any religion, either way you’ll have to fall back on a premise that no human can verify: whether or not gods exist, and what their natures are.
Of course, that hasn’t stopped the world’s greatest minds from arguing all sides of the issue since freaking FOREVER, from Plato to Stephen Hawking, so there’s not much chance of that stopping the internet, either. :p
Maybe I should consider agnosticism, to avoid the possibility of being wrong.
Science is curiosity, science have never needed a god. I don’t think you would ever be wrong as an atheist. Plus being curious and atheistic at the same time will make you go super far my friend. “world’s greatest minds” I am flattered.
What if science proves the existance of a god? I know it’s very unlikely, but there is always the possibility. Just saying.
God is a metaphysical being. It’s impossible for science to prove or disprove the existence of a physical creator, that’s why philosophers talk about it and not scientists outside of giving their personal opinion on the matter.
The word physical is a word that describes our world/dimension. So therefore what is metaphysical, is not there, because it is metaphysical. You just explained why there is no god basicly. Who would care about something that is not in their world/dimension? “The invisible unicorn excists, even though it has no inpact on anything, I still think it is importent to mention it”
The word “physical” is commonly used to describe what can the perceived through your senses i.e. your experience, thats basically what you’re saying. When you apply that concept to, for example, language, you’d find that its just a series of sound waves, which would, of course, be false as language is far more complex, involving, for example, meaning and intention. Whats more, numbers cant be found, as such, in the world; you’ll never find a three in real life (both the word “three” and the symbol “3″ are mere representations of what the number 3 really is) no one would, however, argue that numbers arent real. Reality is not limited to physical objects, it involves ideas, feelings, intentions, actions none of which can be described as “physical”. While it is true that science cannot prove god’s existance, nor can it disprove it. In the Critique of Pure Reason, specifically in the Trascendental Dialectic, Kant proves that the idea of god, the idea of a world and the idea of a soul, the pilars of metaphysics, cannot be know through theoretical reason; however, you shouldn’t make the mistake of thinking that if something cannot be know, it doesnt exist (which, by the way is a non sequitur). Furthermore, our human condition cannot be reduced to merely the use of reason, making use of it is just one of the many activities that we do: we live, we produce, we believe, we desire, we act according to some morals; the field of human activity greatly trascends the simple act of knowledge. As Kant says, and unlike your unicorn example, we need to postulate freedom and God’s existance (both metaphysical concepts) through a will-based practical reason in order to attain a truly moral behaviour, which is something of extreme importance.
I understand that people use religion to create morals. They make an illusion that they have to be in a certain way, or they will be punished or banished by the illusion. Reasoning is just as good if not better, you don’t need a god to have great morals. I believe I have always talked about people who insist that a god figure is above everything, when it can be anything. Number’s aren’t real, it is a language, an interpretation that other people mostly recoqnize. There might be three trees, but in reality it is a gazillion atoms constructed in a different way. The trees could be different, it could be no tree at all, it is all our interpretation. Crime is metaphysical, but you don’t need religion to see why it is stupid. “we believe” only idiots believe, you have to know. The way I “believe”, is be creating theories and testing them to make them into knowing.
Of course, it can be anything else too. I believe that if we really found a mighty creator, it would be The Big Spaghetti Monster, though it doesn’t make me religious, only if I truly believed that TBSM is…. ok you get the point, I know what you mean. And as Athony say: God is in the gaps of what we do not know, arguement.
You tried to convince others to question there beliefs when you were younger?You’re what the world calls,The Devil.
In Hebrew faith and portions of the old testament, the Devil was actually an angel tasked with testing people to bring out the best in him. Part of the issue with Christian interpretations of the Tanahk – also see the common question “If the Devil is a bad guy, then why is God talking to him in the story of Job?”
Have you ever stopped to consider that there maybe a biological basis behind spirituality? That it may come down to brain architecture and perception differences? The reason I among other people find these debates useless is because both sides are arguing from wildly different perspectives and will never understand each others point of view. When asked why religious people are religious, strongly skeptical people like you launch into a tirade of insulting insinuations on the sanity and the intellect of the people involved or you assume they do it for comfort or for morality. Granted, most faithful do little to stem this view as many never really think much about it themselves.
What is it that seperates the Christian who becomes and Atheist from the Atheist who becomes a Christian? Can you answer? I doubt it. I would wager, though, that there is far more nature involved than the nurture argument that is popularly tossed around. I know that the 100% nurture side of the argument is a more comfortable one – who wants to admit that the idea of spirituality maybe biological. To the religious, it cheapens their feelings of being special and to skeptics it means you will never convince the truly spiritual to give up their ways. They will never see the world the way you want them too. trying to explain your point of view becomes like trying to explain green and yellow to a colorblind person who sees them as gray.
Point is, if Brad Jones is spiritual, the scientists I mentioned before in the link, even myself then it maybe more biological than anything. You maybe an Atheist, not because you are smarter but because of your genes, pure and simple. Considering how completely religious and non-religious people seem to misunderstand each other, it seems the only rational explanation.
“You maybe an Atheist, not because you are smarter but because of your
genes, pure and simple. Considering how completely religious and
non-religious people seem to misunderstand each other, it seems the only
when did I say I was smarter? And being religious has something to do with genes? Do you mean upbringing or…. You are not a scientist are you? Now that is what I ment about bullshit!
“Because, like the religious types who might call you a Satan worshiper,”
You don’t know the context, as none have accused me of being a Satan worshiper.
“They will never see the world the way you want them too. trying to
explain your point of view becomes like trying to explain green and
yellow to a colorblind person who sees them as gray.”
So I see multiple colors and they don’t? I’m flattered! And if I (apparently) was so, shouldn’t the color blind be curious anyway?
“The claim that any professor or teacher who believes in God
automatically can’t be trusted as a professor because he will teach the
kids bullshit is offensive.”
You mean a professor in religion. If you have been in academic and skeptic surroundings mostly all your life, and you still believe in a God. The chances are (most likely, highly probable) that your teachings will be affected by it, without knowing so. Are they professors or dictionaries/google?
Hehe funny, you do know I thought people would consider thinking about the idea… but you sound like you expect people to take it litteral. Was too lazy to write this:
some dude made an article.
“you have proceeded to make offensive claims about theists using little
more than your own flawed and admittedly ignorant viewpoints.”
Is there supposed to be a comma in that sentence? Do theists use my viewpoint? Read between the lines, right! There is no offensive claims, only you thinking so, with the rest of people here. Ladies and Gentlemen, lo and behold the “ignorant viewpoints”, the word combination that gives no sense!
“Once again, you stand refuted on all points (at least concerning those
points directed at me and barring the initial spiel). Cheers.”
Directed at you? When did you get that thought?
All I got to say is that there are plenty of Religion vs Atheism (Or whatever) videos on Youtube that are meant to be serious about arguing about it. (I have a lot of them bookmarked) And I think that it IS a subject that is not above massive amount of debate.
Just not here.
This is an ENTERTAINMENT site! Brad just pointed out that, regardless of whether you believe it is true and/or moral, the Bible has a lot of vicious, violent, or sexual things in it. So it is funny to point them out when the show is obviously kiddy and silly and saccharine.
The only thing you should ask about this video is “Is it funny?”
Are you not entertained?
*Russell Crowe voice* ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED??
Not really, if I wanted to be entertained while watching Biblical media, I’ll watch the Ten Commandments, or the animated version Prince of Egypt. At least those films had production value. Or if I feel like watching comedy I’ll watch Life of Brian.
I love how for Biblical media you put Life of Brian in the same list as Ten Commandments and Prince of Egypt. Don’t get me wrong, I love Life of Brian, but one of these things just doesn’t belong here.
Why not? It’s about a guy who is mistaken for Jesus, and his trials and tribulations. Sides, its a diss on people who take up eligon for the wrong reasons, like being overly preachy assholes who feel the need to control the lives of others and/or exploit the resources of communities that share spiritual reliefs.
You are the only one who answered the question: Brad is not an atheist, but he is only religious for moral reasons… that makes no sence, the man is brighter than that.
I wonder if Bibleman and co realise that everything they’re using was designed by science: the TV camera’s, the microphones, the lighting, the editing software, the machine used to design Biblemans costume and props, the list goes on!
Can you imagine a world without any scienctific discovery or progress at all?
We’d still be living in caves, as even building huts or tents is considered ‘science’ in one way or another.
Bibleman, you are a failure! I’d rather see a superhero Jesus, who fights against super villians alongside other superheroes and he wears a snazzy costume that looks cool (like Batman, Captain America or Thor)
Or perhaps the Super best friends?
Buddhism…. Nuff said.
Actually, no, not it`s not. There is nothing wrong with religion or a philosophy on how to live your life but when it becomes fanatical or down right corny…. take it back a notch… Am I right?
*Cough* Read Zen at War. Zen Buddhism influenced and supported Japanese Militaristic expansion. They may appear from a distance at least to be the most peaceful of spiritual movements, but nobody’s hands are ever completely clean.
I was joking… lol.
Why don’t they ever admit that they invent things for other people?
I’m spade and anarchy peace
Is it just me, or was that the ‘Bloodwings: Pumpkinhead’s Revenge’ music at the point where Bibleman was stuck in the Dungeon?
Jeez, you know your show is lousy when you have to lift soundtracks from THAT piece of ass.
Actually it involved a lot of cocaine
Leave it to the Atheist to go to even a video expose to make fun of a video to bring there “God isn’t real,where gonna grow into trees~@,AZ LONG AS I R ATHEIST,I R SMART AND NT GO WRNG”I feel sad,when your dead,you’ll be all dressed up and no where to go.Now,STOP BRINGING WHAT YOU THINK TO THIS VIDEO CAUSE NO 1 ELSE WANTS TO HERE HOW YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN GOD
You’re wrong actually, because I’d like to hear about those who don’t believe in God(s). So there.
I don’t believe in God. Let me say that now, so you’ll actually listen.
But I USED to be a devout Jew. And having been on both sides of the theism fence, I can definitely see why people are so adamant to defend this belief, even without any way to defend their beliefs.
Imagine if ever since you were born you, your whole family, and most of your friends believed in an all powerful, all loving force that existed for no other reason than to make the universe happy and to fill it with justice. How well would you respond to someone saying “You know its all a lie, and your stupid for believing this.”
So you can see why no one would want to listen to that, no matter how much sense it makes. You aren’t going to convince anyone. If they decide to do it at all, it will either be at a very early age, or by their own hand.
This whole quest to “expose the evils of religion” is a waste of time that has done nothing but add fire to the flame war that has erupted on the comments page.
Sorry, but what on Earth are you talking about? I’m not trying to convert people to atheism. Don’t know why you assumed this. I’m just trying to have a laugh and perhaps support fellow atheists.
BTW, you think this is a flame war? Really?? Ha! You should have been there at the great IMDB Passion of the Christ Passion Pit War of ’05. Now THAT was a flame war. They’re still trying to match the fingers to the dead.
Well, if there is a war going on here, there’s only one man who can call an armistice and that’s Spoony by putting down the Double Stuf Oreos and the Xbox360 controller and finishing Ultima 9.
“I’d like to hear from those who don’t believe in God(s)”
Then what’s this about?
The OP said that no one wanted to hear abouthow they didn’t believe in Gods, I said I’d like to hear from such people, therefore his original blanket statement was wrong. It’s pretty simple, no?
Wow,as a Christian,MediaGold,Atheist or not,your awesome haha
I know this is kinda late, as I don’t check my account that often, but wow, thanks for that! It’s really rare I get a, what do they call them… continence? Compartment? Oh yeah, compliance!
atheist or not doesn’t stop this from being a terrible christian propaganda video that actively tells you of the evils of science.
Bibleman, huh? I wonder what kind of car he drives?
My stupid face, is waaayyy to much on this page, what the hell is actually going on here… /foreheadpalm
The Planeteers are like Bibleman; they call on somebody more powerful than themselves to fight their battles.
Thus, Captain Planet = God :O
Where is his Ultima 9 review? I don’t remember that game being that long.
It’s the most broken game I’ve ever played, and I played U8 unpatched. So, for that I’ll excuse him. I’ve not even managed to complete the game myself without cheating extensively, between game breaking glitches (such as the first rune getting stuck in the sky when you restore the shrine of compassion) to the several game crashes an hour that nukes process if you don’t constantly save, I really don’t blame him for taking his time, U9 deserves as brutal a beating as can be rendered.
The game was bad. Still, I was more angry at Max Payne 3.
Wow guys! I was a devout religious person, who dedicated my life to the Lord, and read the works of the miracles, and had two refrigerators and even married a girl who’s Orthodox Jewish like myself. But after reading these comments on DVR-Hell on the spoony experiment I can see how foolish I was. I am completely wrong about all my thoughts of life and death. Thank you commentators for showing me how Atheism is the only true path. Look I’m even using a computer on Saturday!
Because the surefire way to make people sound stupid for spouting their beliefs where it doesn’t matter… is doing the exact same thing! I’m not trying to antagonize here, but come on; the words “cognitive dissonance” must mean something to you.
cognitive dissonance means to hold both a belief and it’s questioning at the same time. HOW THE FUCK, does a person you think “sounds stupid”, contrast this for voicing their own belief? They were using SARCASM, to extrapolate on their disapproval, not make a blanket statement. Furthermore, how are you any different? Cognitive dissonance Ironically means nothing to you as you FAIL to counter quote your own opinion when mocking the original poster. Read a book.
No problem! Hope you enjoy your world of reason.
So whats Spoonys recent excuse for not doing real content?
His dog is sick.
Seriously, its on Twitter. The furrys forum are going crazy already.
Well, I hope Oreo’s ok and she feels better.
That said he always, ALWAYS has an excuse.
Yeah, how dare those idiots want Oreo to feel better. That clearly means makes them furries. Don’t they know that real fans want her to die so that Spoony can devote his entire life to doing reviews and LPs.
I know it’s a joke, but I seriously hope there’s no one actually thinking like that.
Spoony drinks diet DP, and admittedly eats crap food…. I wont get into it. However, if you eat crap, and you don’t maintain your body, then it will start to fall apart. Aspartame is a poison, and high doses of sugar will prolong sickness. (which is proven) Yet to be fair, even deathly Illness, is NO excuse for Bullshit boring second hand reviews like the one spoony aloud on his website.
… I was talking about people wishing his dog would die.
Who the hell wishes that? That’s pretty screwed up.
I was more or less referencing the guys who cried foul when they found out that Noah got a dog because that was going to take away from their reviews. Believe it or not, there were a lot of people who were mad that Noah got himself a dog and have since seen Oreo as nothing more than a distraction.
Theres a guy on the forum who complained his mother doesnt support him HAVING A FAKE DOGS TAIL ON ALL THE TIME.
I have never seen so many furries, loosers and other kinds of virgins in one place.
Oh and you are one of them arent you? Never kissed a girl right? But the neighbours poodle looks at you so sexy….
I have no idea who you are, but let me fill you in on something. I happen to be an adament animal lover, but I am never going to have sex with one. I happen to have more female friends then you will ever have. And once again, if you don’t like it, then PISS off and leave the place to those who do like it.
Right the guy who spends all his time on the comment sections defending his beloved Spoonys has “friends”. Even “female friends”.
Sorry looser, you destroyed your image in the last two comment sections. Should not have white knighted so much, no everyone sees you as a joke.
OMG. Lozer can talk to women better than I can. Joo iz stil lozer thou becuz I sayz sooo. Cum bak wen joo agre wif mi. Seriously though, screw you. You don’t know me. Just because I have more friends then you doesn’t mean you need to be jealous. Spoony needs to ban assholes like you and Colonel in the worst way.
Wow I just checked his profile..This guy IS indeed 24/7 online and on this site :D
Oh how DARE I have his vlogs on while I do other work around the house. I must be some real sack of shit huh. Seriously, if I want to be on here often, I will be. That’s MY perogative not your’s.
btw. If I find out what your username is on the forums, I am reporting you for harassment.
Oh god you are pathetic :D :D :D
You know, something just dawned on me. This site is aimed at pathetic losers like me. So basically, you are just making fun of the target demographic for this show. Why are you here again? I think you may be looking for 4Chan, not TSE. Laugh it up while you can asshole, because I will be the one laughing when your account gets banned for harassment along with anitquarius and MikeBesser. Spoony has shown that he does not take well to harassment on this site.
You really are the definiton of looser :D
That you think anyone would care if his account got banned in a fucking comments sections or forum proofs it :D :D :D
Man that you even bring it ups proofs how deep you got backed in the corner.
EVERYONE SO FAR HAS LAUGHED AT YOU. YOU ARE A LOOSER; A VIRGIN; YOU HAVE NO FRIENDS.
Wow… even for the realm of Christian propaganda, which has been pretty well established for little to no self-awareness (even to Christians), this show sounds just dumb.
Even as a Christian, I’ll admit, this is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen Gundam SEED Destiny XP.
Nah destiny was worse. lol
Still nothing new…
Oh, and this bibleman is so cringe-worthy i couldnt finish the video
Im SURE someone made it like this ON PURPOSE either to dumb people down or to falt out make a mockery out of Christianity
, because there no way anyone can do something this bad on purpose.
Yay! Religion flame war!
way to cater to your audience. (sarcasm) allowing douche the side widows peak, to passive aggressively attack religion, in an attempt to hurt God whom gave him no penis. Serously, I’m only coming back here for the Project wonderful porn. Can’t you Spoony get back to making fun of old sega cd games? This review was horrible and only mildly funny at best. I don’t care if you are an atheist… at least be funny and not agenda obvious!!! Next thing, he will be sucking off Obama in a commentary on Peter Paul and Marry’s Puff the magic dragon.
So far you seem to be the only guy to have a problem with the video. If it’s the one thing that from Christian to atheist alike agree on in this forum is that “Bibleman” is pretty crap. BTW, I don’t think Brad is nonreligious so I doubt that he would blame Whatever for his penis or lackthereof. Perhaps he should take up a sport to overcompensate, like compound bow hunting?
I agree. I was hoping for Ultima, but I like the Cinema Snob, and the review was neat.
It didnt even come to mind that the Snob or Spoony wanted to get out any atheist or even religious messages. It was just them making fun of a cheesy video.
“agenda obvious”? What the hell are you talking about?
Are you seriously accusing Spoony of being a religion basher for his cameo in Brad’s video that makes fun of a goofy, poorly produced cartoon, just because the cartoon is about religion.
This crappy cartoon IS something that can be universally picked on, just like you wanted. They are just doing what they’ve always done, making fun of bad entertainment.
And by the way, if your going to be mad at anyone (though doing so is dumb) be mad at BRAD. I see you make no mention of the person who is in 95% of the actual review. No, lets focus on the cameo that probably took five minutes to make.
I don’t give 10….no 9 fucks less about brad. I come here to laugh. Not deal with life changing issues, nor obviously extremely explosive discussions. I don’t care if someone hates religion. I don’t care if someone loves it. I don’t come here to learn, expand my horizons, nor even care about what some Extremely frail English wanna be sounding Nerd things about Sunday. I come here to laugh, and it’s been to long. Final Fantasy reviews rock.
Only as a CONTRAST to real tallent does brads review give relevance. The Dude isn’t funny. Goddamn he isn’t funny.
Spoony is funny. Not gender, race, religion, funny, but UNIVERSALLY funny. RELATABLE funny. He understands humor the way the Nastalgia Critic does. Not as a statement but as a way to cater to a HUGE target audience. (something obviously Douche tard Failed at)
I blame Spoony ONLY because we are all judged by the company we keep. If I (or anyone else) actually went to the f tards site (if he had one) then I’d have only myself to blame. Spoony… retire that hack. When at more then half your audience says he’s a fail, please consider whom you actually owe your loyalties.
Uh, how do I “unlike”? My mouse slipped next to the reply button and now I feel gross.
Look, there are a LOT of places to find “funny” on the internet. Spoony is funny, and like all funny people, I always want more. But, being foam-at-the-mouth angry about it just seems silly and counter-productive to my own goal of laughing and being happy.
As for being upset with the content of this review, the title made it clear that this was a Cinema Snob review and that it was about Bibleman. If you don’t like Brad and you can’t find humor when religion is involved, then you have no one to blame but yourself for watching it.
I find it amusing that you insist that if you like someone, they are universally appealing, but if you don’t like someone, they are entirely without merit. Dude, time to learn the difference between opinion and fact.
You can dislike a comment by clicking in ‘like’ again.
I don’t think my original post made my opinion clear. Let me try again:
Brad Jones and Noah Antwiller are not attacking religion. Just because they make religious jokes doesn’t mean he is “passive aggressively shitting on” anyones beliefs.
Yeah, Spoony is funnier than Brad. I can agree with that. Spoony is funnier than a lot of people.
I only bring up religion again because you are making accusations of political and religious agenda.
Just another flame war. Boring.
I wonder if posting Noah posting this on his site will rob Brad of views…
Better watch it on the Cinema Snob website to cleanse my conscience.
well the container is the cinema snobs so all the blip advertising still goes to brad. just not the ad revenue from spooney’s web pages
I dunno what’s worse the Religious flame wars or the fanboy wars.
Well, religious flame wars resaulted in the crusades.
Then agien, we do have the great flame war to look forward to.
Well actually the crusades was really a response to Muslims taking Jerusalem, but even that isn’t entirely correct.
trading and pilgrim voyages were going quite smoothly until a certain sect of Muslims took over Jerusalem and blocked trade and tourism.
That’s when all hell broke loose.
Daniel’s right. The Muslims already had Jerusalem for quite some time before the Crusades. So it wasn’t so much about religion as it was about unifying and expanding the Holy Roman Empire (an empire more political than religious).
So Ultima 9….According to Twitter it was to being released three days ago.
But then again the series was supposed to last six months, and not two years.
Meanwhile, in Spoonyland….nothing….
To better illustrate it
http://youtu.be/ySGMnmiqlss and some shameless advertise http://youtu.be/W2JrxnbQWH4 at least those guys can make some hype about it.
I’m amused by how some Christians are so prudish they sanitize the content of their own holy book. And I’m sickened by how its done solely to ensnare youth. I’m surprised the episode didn’t go as far as bribing the kids with candy.
Priests trying to attract children with candy…nothing suspicious about that.
Oh, another WrestleWrestle review! Oh wait, nop. The last one was June last year! Great work, Spoony.
wow… has it really been a f-ing year..
So Ultima is coming next, but what then? Has he hinted at it? A new Final Fantasy review, a new FMV Lets Play…?
Since Oreo got sick, I’m guessing the cure somehow involves playing lots and lots of Pathfinder since that’s what he’s mainly been doing the past couple of days. If Ultima ever gets done, I’d guess the next thing to be released is yet more Pathfinder. Yipee! /sarcasm.
Actually, given how weird tonight’s Pathfinder was, this is an episode that nobody is going to want to miss. RIP Mite.
*posts sign* Here there be whiners.
“We’ve got spineless sycophant sign!!!” And by who clicked the “likes”, they seem to travel in packs. Fascinating!
Better mad than ugly :P
Your really petty.
It just seems weird to me that people who have complaints (mostly legitimate IMHO) about the site are labeled as whiners. Surely if that’s the case the ones who enjoy the site can be called sycophants. Personally, that drives me nuts when this happens because on this site I think both sides have a point, to a degree. I wouldn’t seriously call anyone here a scyophant, except for that PeabrainTearGuy. Spoony could squat over his webcam and drop a dookie bomb and that dude would stand up, applaud and yell “Bravo! Encore!”
I’m planting my vote with the “whiners” because I’m not a RPG fan and I find the work ethic of our Lord appalling. But that last point may be a personal problem on my part.
Alright, cool with me. At least you didn’t try to harass me like that other dude. I’m always on the opinion that shit gets done when it gets done regardless of the pointless bitching that goes on. But now I realize that it’s never gonna stop. So I apologize if my comment was offensive to you in any way and thanks for giving your opinion in a reasonable manner. Despite the pointless insulting that was posted before.
Judging by who liked your comment, I guessing that jackasses travel in packs too.
Seriously, Fuck DISQUS…
Only time I ever saw a retail copy of Bibleman, someone decided to take it into the Wal-Mart bathroom and drop it in the urinal. Not sure what to say about that. I’m actually surprised to find that it was an on-going series, especially one that lasted so long, and seeing footage from it makes it even more surprising. It fails to entertain, it fails to inform, probably counter-productive at both, why the fuck does this exist.
cinema snob blows
Hopefully to change the subject, I wonder when we’ll see a review of Final Fantasy XIII-2?
Can SOME girl please please start dating Spoony? His dog-related Tweets are getting annoying.
YES SPOONY WE KNOW YOU HAVE A DOG AND YES ITS CUTE AND SOMETIMES SURPRISINGLY SMART WE GET IT
Hes like those fresh parents who spam youre facebook wall with pictures of their stupid baby.
Its getting annoying during the Livestreams as well ;D
“And thus you encounter several…No Oreo….Stop it Oreo….Oreo….Oreo No….Oreo wants her Squeaky-Toy Tee-Hee!!!!”
What are you talking about? Most of the Twitter posts about Oreo that I see are on Oreo’s account. I rarely see Noah post something about Oreo. Besides, you clearly have never had the love of an animal before or you would understand why somebody would like to tell you about that animal. This really comes back to the whole, “if you don’t like it, ignore it thing.”
Yes yes whine some more THAT’LL make thing SO much different.
I mean I apologize if I offend anyone for that but nothing is ever going to change. That is just the way things are.
Nobody forces you to read his every single Tweet. Your bitching is pointless.
Hey dumbass, maybe some of us are following Spoony in hope for news about new content?
And then it is annoying when 90% is about his dog.
Actually I just unfollowed Spoony. Whats the point, his announcements regarding content are him talking out of his ass and nothing more.
“I have tons of content!!”
“Ultima should air on wednesday!!!”
Great and now you can leave the site forever and allow people who enjoy his work to enjoy it. Seriously, you are such a badass. Oooo you unfollowed Spoony, THAT will show him. I’m sure all will change because YOU are no longer following him. Fuck you and your entitled bullshit.
Quite. Nobody respects you.
Abort!! Abort!!! The assholes who have no respect for anybody have no respect for me. Please like I’m going to shut up because you tell me to.
btw. It’s spelled quiet not quite.
1. He supported you.
2. Its quite. As in “Indeed”. You know english?
Dumbass. You are so retarted you cant even see when someone supports you. You are so used to loosing arent you? :D :D
I misread it. No need to be a dick.
Oops sorry dude, I misread your comment.
when did he say that he was trying to change anything. He’s just saying that he’s sick of spoony’s bullshit and feels no further reason to follow him. He never said anything that would label him as entitled and his observations are true.
What? He just said he will stop following him because Spoonies Twitter Page is no longer a viable source of information regarding updates.
Whats self-entitled about that?
Let’s say we cut the crap. We all know what this is about. You and Colonel are upset that you aren’t getting what you want, therefore you are making Spoony pay in the only way you can think of. People like you and Colonel don’t seem to understand that there are people out there who enjoy seeing stuff like this. But no, How DARE Spoony use his Twitter account for his own life. NO. Twitter is only to be used to give self entitled pricks like you two the way of knowing when you can expect work. People like you two make me sick. Calling others idiots because you aren’t getting what you want, despite your whining. Like has been said numerous times, “If you don’t like it, THAN LEAVE!!”
They have the right to follow or unfollow a twitter, and also to announce it if they like. What you intepret it as is really your business isn’t it?
His dog got sick afterwards which may explain the delay. Spoony is slowly becoming the Axl Rose of internet reviewers. Thank you for being mature and unfollowing rather than pointlessly troll him.
I think leaving the comments page would send a stronger message than unfollowing Spoony’s twitter. One less person to add to his traffic.
Hell, I should probably consider leaving. Reading these comments just makes me sick at how things have degraded.
Maybe I’ll go to Screw Attack. There should be something to watch there.
Have you seen all the Retroperspectives yet? By Stuttering Craig? Great stuff.
A lot has happened with his dog. She got sick.
I think your anger is a little misdirected. I’m more angry that we have yet to see any sort of update as to the release of the next Ultima video.
And Spoony actually hasn’t posted about his dog in a while. Now he’s just making more jokes. It’s like he’s forgotten that work exists.
And your point is ?
I’m pretty sure if he got another girlfriend, he would tweet about her just as often as he tweets about Oreo.
I’d volunteer to be that girl regardless of Noah’s tweeting habits ;)
Then go at it girl. He is actually rather good looking isnt he, he even got trough his chubby-phase a year ago.
wait wait, I was here first…..LOL
Is sick….broke up with his girlfriend….is sick again….his dog is sick….(sigh) I miss the old Spoony (how does he even make money???).
the only logical thing to conclude;
he has a way of finding more problems instead of solutions
Well Pathfinder sucks. Its unintuitive, the sessions have no immersion, no one is in character etc.
But I like it that you try to get more people involved, that you try so spread what it means to have a nice roleplay session with your friends. How about you make a livestream with an easier RPG, with a boardgame? Im not talking Dragonstrike, but how about the Battlestar Galactica Boardgame? Didnt you mention you wanted to do a session of that?
The Battlestar Galactica sesh has been and gone.
although I gave up after a few minutes. I much prefer the Pathfinder games to this.
There’s also the Dethklok stuff on Lord Kat’s site, if the Pathfinder characters don’t float your boat. It’s version 3.5 stuff, and the characters and storylines are worth a listen.
Yeah…of all the fantasy table top RPGs out there why Pathfinder? How about the Song of Ice and Fire RPG, or The One Ring? Pendragon? Shit, Riddle of Steel would be way more interesting than DnD or any of its spawn.
Wow BibleMan… that was a dark time in my childhood
*reads comments* *is appalled by the anger here* *leaves*
::Reads page of comments. Notices they have absolutely nothing to do with the video. Leaves.::
-Idk if you were trying to put me down or something, but I just think it stinks that no one really has anything good to say on here. Then again, Comments sections tend to just depress me anyway.
No ma, these comments are just a bad example. Everyone is just so fed up with the website that there aren’t any pleasant conversations to have.
idk, I had a pretty intelegent conversation with that Zejex guy. For one based on the nature of religion, it was remarkably cival.
We could always migrate back to the gameover review. Seriously the comments are actually pleasant over there.
They were pleasant because Spoony made his Scripted Review of the Month. I think when there isn’t any entertainment, we take out our frustration on each other.
Not to say this video is bad, but if I want Cinema Snob, I’ll visit his website. I like him, but a lot of people don’t.
Spoonys videos were missing some of the original content in the opinion of many of his fans. (Even famous ones like Yahtzee for ZeroPunctuation).
So many wrote exactly that, although very politely. There are haters too, but those are in the minority. Most posts were very mature. (“Hey Spoony any chance for another Lets Play? Has almost been three years…etc. etc.)
Buuuut of course there are the fanboys who cant stand anyone critizising their beloved lord and master who cant do wrong. So they started instulting those posters, or making stupid statements (If you dont like it dont watch it!!!!1111 OLOLOLOL).
And of course if you are instulted, the situation will hardly cool down. So the original posters insulted back, then got insults in turn, blabla bla yadda yadda yadda.
Sorry to hear about your prison rape, man.
-I’m human. I can be negatively affected by what people do or say, lol. It happens.
Why didn’t Dr. Insano ever tell us he was green in the 90s? Afraid we wouldn’t vote for a President of color?
why dont ya all quit bad mouthing spoons, you know this man has a life besides us, If feel its a treat when we get somthing new from him and dont mind waiting for him, you guys are whinny little zell dincts…….get a grip….P.S. spoons Ill marry ya still…:)
Actually he doesnt.^^ No seriously, hes not doing this site parallel to a real job, THIS is his job.
Just putting it into perspective.
So life is now defined solely by the term “job”? Life does not mean friends or activities he likes to do? You know I’m getting tired of this, “he has to do what he want because we are his sole source of income” argument. Did you ever think that maybe Miles is bringing in some pretty good money for them to live off of?
I guess that depends. How much does a police officer ussually make in Arizona?
No idea. My point is though that this site is not the only source of income comming into that household.
And therefore he shouldnt care if his site looses visitors, and he income, because hey his brother pays for it??
Are you fucking retarted?
If spoony cares, he cares. You guys speculating about his income and life holds no legitimacy at all.
It’s his life, and his desicions. Voice critisism sure, but if you really hate it on the site, then just move along.
I dont hate it on the site. I love Spoonys reviews, Lets Plays and even Vlogs, and am disappointed that he hardly does them anymore.
Thank you sir. You are my new hero
Nice to see a man in his late 20′s mooching off his brother who actually goes out and works for a living.
About a month since the last proper video.
Wasn’t this supposed to be his source of income?
Define proper video. The guys on the forum and I would describe a “proper” video as anything that Spoony feels is worthy of being uploaded. Clearly, you think that a proper video is what? A review? An LP? Something that doesn’t come from another site and isn’t a Pathfinder session?
The guys on the forum? You mean the die-hard fanboys that are left after Scarlett kicked everyone else? Why are you even referring to them?
I have to correct myself. Theres a poll in the forum asking is you are satisfied witht he site content. Not even 50% are satisfied.
Guess I was wrong about only fanboys being on the forum. Damn really looks grim for Spoony O_o
Dude that poll shows that most people either support Spoony or aren’t decided on what they think. I don’t see how things are really that grim.
Or most people don’t visit his shitty Third Reich forums
Why are they like the Third Reich. The Third Reich would execute anybody who thought differently from them. The forums require that you attack an argument not a user. Is it really so hard for some people to argue without attacking the person?
Something tells me that if a poster expresses any kind of dissent in the forums, they’ll be dealt with quicker than a Houlan protester in Syria. I’ve heard about all the tinpot e-Assad’s that lurk there.
Then why is the comments page safe for people to scream their heads off?
Not saying your wrong, just saying that maybe the moderators need to spend less time criminalizing innocent people on the forums, and more time dealing with real scum here.
But what do I care. ULTIMA 9, GLEEEEEE!!!
I looked in the forums the other day and it seems a lot of the forum people just stick to the forums. They don’t want to deal with us lowly comment scum.
No it doesnt:
Are you satisfied with the content on the Spoony Experiment?
Total Voters: 70
No I’m not. What I said was that most didn’t say no and a more roundabout way. Last I checked 71.4% is much more than 28.6%
not if he marrys me and my trust fund…..$$$$$
Ugh… just knowing that this exists makes me fell sick >.< (not the review of course, lol)
Indoctrinating kids (especially with vile BS like… well… any religion) is not cool, people!
Oh, and to the people complaining about what Spoony writes on twitter: Just visite the site if you want to know if he uploaded something new. It'll even consume less time than reading through all his tweets. No stop whining ffs.
You are so late to the party, man. Count yourself lucky you weren’t here to witness it.
Well guys. According to Spoony’s twitter feed, Ultima IX is rendering and should be up at some point tonight.
Ultima 9 will be up tonight! Can’t wait until the second week of it’s posting for people to start bitching like this again.
I know. It will be so much fun dealing with the same argument time and time again from self entitled little brats who think that Spoony should give up any life he has and grind out reviews nonstop.
I wonder how many of these people complaining about delays in updates were the same people telling us that Spoony was never going to finish Final Fantasy VIII? Patience is the greatest virtue.
Dude, it’s his job.
time to rape F5
Brad Jones is religious by genes…
I was once told that a minority of science professors were religious, I was stunned… (Please send me back to Mars, for everyones sake!)
Dude not every one lives the way you want them to. It’s a fact. But we are all stuck on this big-ass chunk of rock anyway so we might as well get along. :)
Hehe, you are right dear Alexander. I am not asking people to live in a certain way, but to use their cognitive abilities a tiny bit more… even though it hurts.
Never did post that link before as I meant to when mentioning Brad Jones, genetic spirituality, etc.
Funnily (or maybe tellingly), clergy tended to score low on having the gene. Not sure if this says anything bad about the hypothesis or if it reflects worse on religious leaders who may turn out to mostly just be sociopaths using religion to cow people into making them rich or doing their bidding.
Important to bear in mind that there is a difference between religious and believing in the after life, some creator entity, etc. Difference between pantheist and theist, etc.
Hmm…So Dr. Insano is now fighting battles against Bibleman. And we know from an earlier review that he made a clone of Spoony that is a hardcore Christian. Is this his attempt to bring down the Spoony Revelation?
AW i was really hoping he’d appear on stage proclaiming himself the god of hellfire.
All you bitches sucking on spoony cock he’s not a great person he’s doesnt even review shit like most tgwtg people they just shit on movies now because they ‘ mostly spoony ‘ like to act like they are so smart when they can’t even understand the movies they happily down on. Spoony is just a leech with mental problems because he cant get over the only chick his loser ass will probably ever get. So all you spoony fans keep bending over for this nut case until he finally offs himself when he comes to the revelation of how big a loser he is. Oh yeah morons you know the bitch doesnt even read these his fragile ego can’t take the truth.
Ugh. Bibleman … really? I can accept Veggitales or the Greatest Adventure series … even ‘If you Love me, Show me” (real movie, btw), but Bibleman? Really? I haven’t seen a superhero miss the point so entirely since ‘Miss-the-point-entirely-Man’!
this makes all the characters from Lazy Town look super badass.
As funny as this was I have to ask this: What’s a bibleman?
