FTA:

Last month, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly stepped into instant Internet infamy when, in a debate with American Atheists president David Silverman, O’Reilly attempted to prove the existence of God by citing the mystery of the tides: “I’ll tell you why [religion is] not a scam, in my opinion. Tide goes in, tide goes out. Never a miscommunication. You can’t explain that. You can’t explain why the tide goes in.” Only one problem: There’s this thing called the Moon which might have a little to do with tides.

awesome. purely awesome
have you seen the coverage they gave this on the daily show..or maybe it was Colbert...either way, hilarious!
"All hail Luna, the virgin bride of Father Night!"
"Where did the moon come from?" 0.o

Infinite regress. You can't explain that.

Jagermeister goes in, vomit comes out.

You can't explain that!!

Well Dustin I would like to try to explain that, and i will, no matter how much research I have to do or how much Jager I have to drink I will find the answer(s).  Anyone else interested in taking part in this research??  lab assistants??  Hey if we get trashed enough, we might even be able to see things religious people see.  Then we could answer two questions: the mystery of the Jager-vomit and the mystery of how people with even the most basic of education can believe in the fantasy of ID.    Cheers, Dave

I've conducted several clinical trials concerning excessive alcohol consumption and religious belief.  Interestingly, it turns out there is a correlation between the two at sufficiently high doses, but it involves the worship of deity known as "The Porcelain God".  Even people pre-disposed to other religions tend to worship this false idol when they consume mass quantities of alcohol. 

 

I've also heard that Salvia and LSD cause people to have religious experiences, but I have not conducted any trials in this area.

In 2007 O'Reilly interviewed Richard Dawkins and used the exact same analogy.
I knew it. Bill O'Reilly is actually a werewolf.
