Skepticism

Killing rats with religion…

Well, not about a book but about a TV show. I recently discovered comedian Demetri Martin. Holy crap is this guy funny. I really can’t find anything to say about this video. I guess he’s not religious. Anyone know if perhaps he’s a skeptic? Or is he just a smart ass? Either way, here’s some comic relief for your Sunday viewing pleasure.

Creedocide, Harness the power of religion to help fight household pests.

Donna Druchunas is a freelance technical writer and editor and a knitwear designer. When she's not working, she blogs, studies Lithuanian, reads science and sci-fi books, mouths off on atheist forums, and checks her email every three minutes. (She does that when she's working, too.) Although she loves to chat, she can't keep an IM program open or she'd never get anything else done.

  1. that was highly entertaining. Quite possibly more entertaining than watching, for 3 hours, the Oscars, which I can’t anyway, cuz I don’t have cable or satellite and I never bothered to set up an antennae to get network television.

  2. I just listened to a podcast interview on NPR w/Dmitri – oh yah, a funny, funny guy.

    His father was a Greek Orthodox minister; he was an altar boy. He mentions that he hasn’t been to church a lot lately, but (somewhat jokingly) blamed it on always being on the road.

    Given how he was raised, I suspect he quietly believes in a deity.

  3. I can’t say for sure whether or not he’s skeptical of religion, but I’ve been following him long enough to know that he’s a sharp guy, so I’m going to hazard a guess and say, “Yup.” And, as far as being a smart-ass goes, “Yup,” as well.

    Demetri’s like a combination of Steven Wright and George Carlin, with a little bit of Stephen Lynch and the Conchords mixed in.

    Besides, he’s included the always hilarious H. Jon Benjamin (from “Home Movies” and “Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil”) in the show; for that he gets high marks.
