All hail @MarkBurnettTV & @RealRomaDowney’s hilarious, white-washed @History channel @bibleseries!

History? No, no. We don’t trouble ourselves with fact or evidence.

Here’s a recap of the first episode.

Yes, yes. I’m white. Never mind my Semitic ethnicity.

I wrote about this when I first heard about it (and boy have the whiny, self-righteous, dishonest Christians come out of the woodwork since then!). The first episode has since premiered and, much to my dismay but complete lack of surprise, the ratings have been excellent. This of course means that more religious horseshit will most likely start pouring out of Hollywood. I actually have no real problem with that; H’wood’s a business and so will do what it thinks will make money, but I do have a number of problems with the series itself.

But rather than gripe for too long about that, I’ll let a couple others jump in here first.

Fuck you, Mark Burnett, Roma Downey, and the History Channel, for perpetuating made-up bullshit!

I saw this on Nikki Finke’s Deadline.

For those who don’t know, Burnett built a very lucrative career creating, among others, CBS’ Survivor, which, as we all know, pretty much single-handedly created what’s now known as reality TV. His wife, Downey, according to Finke, was the executive producer of Touched by an Angel.

I get the profit motive of exploiting, what Finke (and everyone else) calls, “…the most popular book in human history…” especially given that there are at least, I think, 80 million Evangelical Christians in the country.

But this: Holy-Bible_20110524052238.jpg

does not = this:

In fact, not only do we now know that Noah’s Ark didn’t happen, but there’s also zero evidence that the Exodus happened, or that Jesus even existed.

If you’re gonna call something “history,” it sure would be nice if it were actual, proven, non-made-up bullshit history.

Away we go!

“I never said science will not be able to do anything. And yea you are right, being 100% devoted will not make us innvincible. The ones that died twas their time. The ones that lived have an unknown mission to complete. Forgive me for my offensive language, i got ahead of myself, sorry.”

Me:

You said, “Science doesn’t claim to have created the universe and it will NEVER be able to.” So, “will NEVER be able to” seems to me to counter your 1st sentence.

Claiming that someone has an “unknown mission” is ridiculous. There’s no reason to believe such a thing.

No problem on the language. :)

“Well sir, by what you say to her i convlude that you BELIEVE she can hear you. And my beliefs are actually quite verifiable, take the catholic church for instance, they removed books from the bible to hide their evil. If you’ve ever seen the History channel, you shouls have heard that science even now k ows that Jesus existed, why do you think tgey look for the Ark of Noah? Science trying to PROVE the Bible.”

Me:

Your conclusion is incorrect. Of course I don’t believe she can hear me. She’s dead.

It depends on what specific beliefs we’re discussing.

The Catholic Church removing books from the Bible proves nothing. “Evil” is made up.

I have seen the History Channel and have never seen a shred of evidence that Jesus existed. Science has never concluded such a thing.

People looking for the Ark of Noah proves only that they’re looking for it.

Science trying to prove the Bible doesn’t equal proof.

At least the poster apologized for the ad hominems!
