Of course, god forbid you might actually learn something.

@Hammurabi - completely agree with you. Have had too many experiences of attempting to watch shows that are advertised as questioning the bible's veracity, only to see nothing but circular logic and deathcult p.r. Drives me bonkers.

Truth is rather inconvinient to your psyche.

The neighbours must LOVE you.

Meh, the History Channel sucks. There are other historical periods besides the bleedin' Nazis, y'know.
2/26/2009 7:55:36 AM
i dont even have pay TV and only see occasionally when i babysit for my cousins but even i know what you mean...everything is about Nazi's or war. Its like nothing ever happened except people fighting each other.

The first step to being cured is admitting that you're a gibbering lunatic who needs help.

Do you really expect the History channel to tell you the earth is only 6000 years old? Those channels are usually extremely respectful of religious beliefs; I've never heard them say anything to imply that God does not exist. Apparently fundie Bible literalists can't stand an intelligent explanation of the Bible as metaphor, as it was intended to be.

I have the same problem with University Challenge.
I've been known to leap up and down screaming "It's Hamlet, you fucking morons" at the screen.
Still better for my blood-pressure than watching any of the currently-in-vogue-at-the-BBC documentaries about religion, though.
2/26/2009 10:22:57 AM
I don't watch those channels because they're constantly running stupid speculative bible "history" shows back to back to back.
2/26/2009 11:29:13 AM
The real reason you're not watching is the polysyllabic vocabulary used...hurts that pointy head of yours.
2/26/2009 11:31:27 AM
It's like teaching pork.

"I always expected the men with the huggie jackets to show up at my door. "
I always wondered why they didn't.

What's wrong with me?
Nothing, I'm just trying to eat my fish! *noms on a retarded and obscure meme*

"I end up screaming at the TV screen "WHAAAT! Are you CRAZY!? What's WRONG with you!???"
Y'know, screaming at inanimate objects is one sure sign of insanity. As is having 'Imaginary Friends' outside of childhood.
"Religion is comparable to Childhood neurosis"

And I get the same way from watching the show It is Written when they use word play or try to blind me with science in an attempt to make what they say seem more plausible that the actual truth. Boils my blood!
2/26/2009 2:07:46 PM
I am so shocked.
I find myself in agreement with someone from RR ,though admittedly for the completely opposite reason.
Like others here have mentioned the Biblical programmes I have seen on these channels accept far too much as 'gospel truth',when real historians and archaeologists have shown that much of it is speculative or myth at best.

This is why you are, and will continue to be, a moron.
2/26/2009 8:29:29 PM
"I don't watch those channels anymore when the subject is God, the Bible, Prophecy, Jesus, etc..."
Good thing as your bullshit capacity is full
2/26/2009 10:28:50 PM
Funny, I scream that("WHAAAT! Are you CRAZY!? What's WRONG with you!???") when I am reading half the comments on here from fundies.
2/26/2009 10:53:25 PM
I don't watch History Channel specials on the Bible or religon quite often. I guess it has more to do with the fact they don't catch my interest most of the time.
2/27/2009 12:18:05 AM
Huggie jackets? Seriously?
2/27/2009 3:32:23 AM
Actually, this is pretty much how I feel when I hear the fundagelicals spouting off their nonsense.
2/28/2009 3:17:02 PM
I don't think much of the History Channel. Their fact-checking is dubious, they repeat urban legends, and they use theology as evidence. The Discovery Channel is mostly advertising masquerading as science--all technologic toy crap--with only the odd good program.
Ironically, I agree about the "Vision" channel--a religious network-- occasionally having some great factual documentaries about history, culture, sociology, and science.
