You got it all wrong. He gets riled up about, and pokes fun at, the people who fervently believe in this bullshit, even if for no other reason than the people who fervently believe in the bullshit are influencing laws and education for all of us, whether we like it or not.

Big difference.

RE: Bill Maher
George Carlin and Bill Maher's stand up comedy is what got me to realise what religion is doing to people and also got me more involved with atheism.

I dont always agree with Bill's outlook on other subjects, but when it comes to religion, I do.


Oh, BTW, Russell Crow wouldnt be such a bad guy if he would just stop hitting people with telephones.... Gasp .. Laugh out load

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

RE: Bill Maher
Bill Maher is not an atheist, he is anti-organised religion. He is also a total fucking woo-meister.

I can't understand the acceptance of him by non-believers. He deserves nothing but censure from skeptics.

What religion is he, then? I'm not saying you're wrong; all I have to go by is the two or three videos I've seen of him on YouTube, and that's about it.

I think he was brought up catholic if I am remembering correctly from Religulous...it's been a while since I watched that but I'm sure he said catholic.

Is he not atheist then? I was under the impression he was. We don't get his show in the UK (well I don't, there may well be some channel I don't have that does) so I'm just going by his stand-up, Religulous and You Tube clips.

Eva, I do believe your right, he was raised catholic and is now an atheist.

Heres a link to some of his most recent shows.

He most certainly is an atheist. He has said so himself several times and finds the concept of god to be ridiculous. The only wooish crap that I've heard from him was about vaccines. He made some statement on twitter a while back about not everyone needing the H1N1 vaccine and said some people who got it were idiots.

I really don't thing that makes him a "woomeister" and disqualifies him from using the term atheist.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

RE: Bill Maher
Not everyone that's an atheist is free of all bad ideas. Bill Maher make some stupid comments about vaccines, and Penn Jillette is a libertarian.

They can't all be winners.
