During Richard Dawkins' American tour in March 2009, he gave a talk titled "The Purpose of Purpose". I travelled with Richard to these cities and filmed the talks, which I've edited together here. The content of the talk remains intact, while the editing moves between the different locations and Richard's Keynote presentation. (From Richard Dawkins.net via Atheist Media Blog).
Darren Brown said about this video: PLEASE – do yourself a favour and turn the sound OFF – NOW. I’m almost willing to throw the towel in admit that creationists are right when I hear it. However the video is just brilliant (if you ignore the silly text as well)... Here’s 500 generations every SECOND backed up by actual fossil evidence – shoved in to a computer and animated together. It’s fantastic to watch.
And here's the video that is linked from the "god demands evolution" link in the previous vid.
I hate ads. If i want something, i'll look for it myself thankyouverruhmuch! And for the most part, ads are just stupid blah blah blah... our product is great because it's shinier than our competetor and you get a free turtle... blah blah blah...
But every now and then there is an ad so insanely avant garde that you just have to tell everyone about it.
I don't know how i've got through life so far without y-fronts on my hands!
Sunglasses that brighten the world, and give it HD clarity.
First of all, there are already horrible, plastic, cheap, crappy sunnies you put over your prescription glasses. You never see them on anyone under 90 because they are terrible! I will agree that the world looks better through polarised lenses though... especially window tint, which goes all LSD trippy and is likely to distract you while youre driving.
A vibrator for your Head.
I can just imagine the woman in the meeting saying "Can you just excuse me for five minutes while i apply a strap-on vibrator to my brain. I find it much better than medically supported tablets which would allow me to continue the meeting without issue... bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"
And now it starts to get a little weird...
Crossdressing pest control
I admire this guy's commitment, but he's obviously a drag queen imposter. All the drag queens I've ever seen can keep in tune when they sing. I will not purchase services from an imposter. Good day sir!
Dead babies enjoying a milk shower
This is why I no longer consume dairy. I usually tell people some nonsence about ethics and how it's wrong to treat animals the way that they do on intensive factory farems, but the truth is that I once saw this going on in a paddock and have never been the same since.
Amazing acting skills despite a developmentally delayed eagle crapping on their roof
I don't know what to say about that. I just wish I was that brochure...
David Lynch's Sprite commercial
It's like speaking in tongues for your eyes!
Jungle porn juice
And I guess that's a good place to end. Using sex to sell a product has been around ever since the first wheel was being marketed, but what are we selling here? It seems like a subliminial advertisement for bestiality dressed up as a juice commercial! And seriously... the juice is called 'orangina'. I mean, c'mon... if your product is so bad you have to call it 'genital-pop' to sell it, you should probably rethink your objectives.
Thgis has to be one of the best Mr Deity episodes yet. From Lucy reading the God Delusion, to the Penn and Teller references and all of the analogies to closed mindedness. Through and through this is epic!
If you've never seen Mr Deity before this is a great place to start. If you have seen Mr Deity before, you'll LOVE this!
and the Penn and Teller trick they are talking about
If there was a proof that truly did disprove God's existence, would the theist be able to accept it, given that his presuppositions are in opposition to the non-existence of God? In other words, given that the theist has a presuppositional base that there is a God, in order for him to accept a proof for God's non-existence, he would have to change his presuppositional base. This is not easy to do, and would involve a major paradigm shift in the belief structure of the theist. Therefore, a theist is presuppositionally hostile to any proofs for God's non-existence, and is less likely to be objective about such attempted proofs.
After reading how he is depicted in the bible, Mr Deity decides that the christians (yeah, he knows some jews were also responsible, but they have it hard enough already) need to pay. He smites them with the inability to dance, curses their leaders with bad hair and all sorts of terrible afflictions.
Great one liners include "they do that to kids?". "How about we get the pope to kill a bunch of them [xstains] off, he's good at that".
