If media atheists like dawkins / maher / hitchens weren't so often such smug pricks the ideas they promote might get a lot wider acceptance. And those jump-cut to stock footage gags were cheap and unfunny.

I'm not sure quite what the correct tone to take with adults who believe in lies, magic and fairy tales is, but between those three, I think they have it right.
They're not dealing with some benign force - religion is a force for hatred in the world and should be exposed for the corrupting fallacy that it is.
To say the gags were cheap would be to imply there was some respect due. There's not. Fuck 'em.

Thanks for the link, nice one.

Damn right. Dawkins especially. What a cocky prick. He practically admits it as well, saying he's not a diplomat or words to that effect. This movie looks like !zed !zed

it looks like it was edited by an eppo

p.s fuck bill maher
I found it hard to watch to be honest. The whole film is so condescending and self serving. I can just imagine him giggling and mocking everyone who contributed to it in the editing room. The only thing he's proven with this is that he's an asshole. There's plenty of your beloved evidence for that there Bill.

Yeah, it's not a particularly insightful piece of work, imho.
I don't think he's going for insight, just laughs.
It's light entertainment.
I was expecting it to be better though, I like his show.

Those trying to cure homosexuality and conmen getting rich off the gullible deserve whatever mocking they get.
