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.

Just because her eyes don't tear doesn't mean her heart doesn't cry. Just because she comes off strong doesn't mean there's nothing wrong.

I've seen the Apostle but not the others.

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