"I've been to a sceptics convention and an exorcism and the exorcism was more exiting" - John Saffron.
Does John Saffron have a point when he says that religious rituals are too much fun to ban - providing a breadth of human experience not provided in none religious communities?
No, I'm sorry for not watching all of your video, really and truelly. It's just that I have been having trouble with my concentration span lately. I mean, I can effectively summarise the entire history of theology with one word. It's crap. My point of view leaves me with a lot of spare time for other interests. So, do I need to know about John Saffron, or not ?
John Saffron is a controversial figure. He has explored religious beliefs and rituals. He was born Jewish. I think he is interesting to watch as someone exploring their own and other faiths. I find him entertaining - although I think I did once see a show he did and thought it disappointing - perhaps due to his lack of rational thought when it came to the big questions... but I like that he pushes the boundaries of belief and I like the way he does it.
He's kind of self taught through personal experience - so doesn't go for secondary sources - which means he probably lacks peer review in his investigations.
It is indeed crap, but "It's crap." is two words.
LOL, I'm sometimes a grammar nazi, too.)
KKK rejects John Safran John Safran is a funny guy. In this clip he is rejected by the KKK because he is Jewish. In other clips he plays an Atheist Door Knocker and a Scientologist.
Atheist Humour Group might like his stuff.
well i'm glad you've managed to make something of my introduction to John Saffron.... he is entertaining as I said before.... as a few Jewish guys are....
I like Saffron for the similar reasons I like Seinfeld and Sam Harris - for some reason Jewish blokes from that area of the US do have a great sense of humour and scepticism that they bring into their every day life... I find it amusing....
