Bullshit

Penn & Teller, they of the magic tricks and Babylon 5 cameos have been doing a show for a while now calling bullshit on wacky claims. Apparently this has been going for a while, but I just heard about it recently.

They've gone for some big targets, such as PETA, ESP, Conspiracy theories and the like. However the two I have enjoyed the most are the ones dealing with the Bible and creationism. What makes it doubly cool is that it appears to have been officially added to youtube, so that those of use without US cable TV can still get the benefit. Go check them out!

"Religion is an insult to humanity. Without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things, but to get good people to do evil things it takes religion." - Steven Wienberg.
