Ricky Gervais on Genesis--Video

Via Debunking Christianity

So, God "made 'em big so I could see 'em from heaven!" What a fucking pedophile! Never thought about it that way! "Come on, take your clothes off!"

Just had a thought, via Daylight Atheism:

"And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food."
—Genesis 1:29 (RSV)

Maybe if they had eaten every plant, they wouldn't have been so embarrassed to be naked? I mean, they might have been "made aware" by this tree, KNowledge of Good and Evil and all that, but where the hell does nakedness enter into it? What's so bad about that? God had been checkin' out their naughty bits all along, enjoying the view, and all of a sudden, they find out that all along this has been evil? As I said above, this makes God a complete pervert, and complicit in their sin. After all, it had to have been a sin before the eating of the fruit, since it was not The Tree of Making Things Sinful that Weren't Sinful Before.

And what a stupid, idiotic thing to make for their second "sin:" being naked. Yes, yes, metaphoriacs, I know what your little beautiful flow'ry metaphor is about being naked and ashamed, so go impress someone else with your sage knowledge. I'm trying to make a point, not an excuse for biblical anti-morality. What I'm saying is that God goes right in with the sexual shame, and we're all supposed to pretend he wasn't a part of it. God is the first power-imbalance sexual abuser. It's all falling into place. Maybe if God had been just a little bit decent, he could have given them a bit of one of the "every plant on earth," and they wouldn't have had to feel so bad.

Thanks for sharing that, Gervais is brilliantly funny, and I wish I had a chance to see more of his material.
