This pisses me off
I posted a video on another thread which was an advertisement for atheism HOWEVER it was apparently originally aired as a commercial for Scientology.

The atheist video







Here's the Scientology video.





I'm pissed. I'm not sure who I'm pissed at but I'm pissed at someone.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Wait. How do you equate "freethinker" with Scientology? God, I hope that Christians don't steel that term.

I'm confused: Who ripped off who?

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Form what I can find, Cult of Dusty took the scientology ad and replace the last few seconds changing "what's true is what's true for you" to "the power of logic". That at least made the message consistent.

From what I've been able to gather the Scientology advertisement was first, the atheist was second.

It concerns me that atheists can't get the money together to film a commercial and have to use hand-me-down Scientology crap.

Was this actually aired as a superbowl commercial? From what I find it's a just a youtube takeoff of the scientology ad.

The atheism commercial was actually aired during the superbowl which caused a big stir. I just found out that it was originally a Scientology commercial, I think from the year before but the atheist organization changed the ending.

I distinctly remember seeing the atheist commercial during the Superbowl. Best thing about the whole game.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

I don't think that's right. It caused a stir because it got posted on youtube as "atheist superbowl commercial" but I can't find anything that doesn't say it turned out to be a hoax or parody of the scientology ad that did air.
