Religion and Movies
There are a couple of movies that really show how ridiculous religion can be.

One is called "The Apostle" starring Robert Duvall. He did a great job acting in it by the way. Really nailed the character of a sinning preacher.

Another one is called "Frailty" starring Bill Paxton. In this one Paxton plays a man so obsessed with god that he commits murder.

There are some other one's I can't recall at the moment other than the godfather movies.

If you haven't seen them check them out sometime.

Try Dogma as well.

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

I think Passion Of The Christ is pretty ridiculous. Does that count?

Dogma

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I haven't seen that one. Thought about it, but Mel Gibson as christ didn't turn me on.

Glad 'Dogma' was brought up...haven't watched that in a while, sounds like a plan for the weekend.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude.

I've seen the Apostle but not the others.

If documentaries count, Bill Maher's Religulous is a hoot.
