Rick Reynolds on Religion




An excerpt from the comedian Rick Reynold's 1992 one-man show ONLY THE TRUTH IS FUNNY. If you ever get a chance to see the Showtime Special or hear the CD of this show, do it. It's brilliant.

You are baptized by naturalstic science.
Miracles you supposes irrational can be explored in the area of science.
To be sure, the science I mentions is remote of the naturalstic science.
The Bible clearly proclaims that God is the cause of miracles done in history. The principles of causation is applied to miracles.
The miracle of turning water into wine in the book of John is recorded not to make you only fun, but to make you know who Jesus is.
If you turn back on the secular mind contaminated by naturaslim and assum God as the casue of miracels, you will have no problem with miracles.
If you deny the existnece of God, you will continue to pursue only fun in your entire life. Keep in mind that you are created to seek more than fun you stress on.

How so? Just because I think the show would be better if they took out the religion, puts me in the same boat? With who though?

webmdave said...

I might settle for trolls that made sense.

The Bible...blablabla, The Bible...blablabla, The Bible...blablabla. Get a clue, no one here give a sh!t what your buy-bull says. Stop coming here and quoting from it. To quote Bill Mahr in reference to the King James Bible- I'd find more morality in the Rick James Bible"

And he's right. The Buybull is a sorry piece of bronze-age sh!t.

You didn't understand anything he said and neither, I suspect, did he.

Puts you and him in the same boat, Mriana.

Lol. Seriously. I wasn't sure if I understood anything eungchan said ...

Honey, if this site is making you so stressed out that you cannot make any sense at all, it's time for you to take a break. Watch some Veggie Tales or something.

"Has it ever occurred to you that heaven might be a very annoying place?"

Yes. Yes it has.

Thanks for posting this.

I don't like the current pope. Just looking at him gives me the creeps.

That was funny though. Thanks for sharing. :)

webmdave said...

Nope. I rarely understand the Fundies who come here. lol

Oo! Veggie Tales. Talking vegetables and fruits. :D They are cute, but can't they be a normal kids' show? That would really make the talking veggies and fruits great. Except, I wouldn't want to eat those veggies. They seem to be some sort of accentiant (spelling?) life form because they talk. lol

OK so I have a weird side to myself. Actually, Veggie Tales got on my nerves! However, if they were a normal kids' show, they might not be too bad.

Wasn't that the missing verse from a Beatles song:

"Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream,
Unto salvation, unto salvation.
Delusional, though living, still, the dream,
Justification, Justification.

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the average troll!

webmdave said...

So what miracles has God done lately? Raised anyone from the dead? Regrown any congenital limb amputations?


Thought not.
Thanks for this point you made though, "if you turn your back on the secular mind contaminated by naturalism (not naturaslim, the diet supplement) and assume God as the cause of miracles, you will have no problem with miracles."

Turn your brain off and just believe, then it all makes sense, right? Thanks for being honest about that.

Give up all varieties of ritual and simply surrender to Me, I will protect you from all reactions.

God works in mysterious ways, He brought eungchan to this website to learn His ways.

@eungchang -
Let's see, naturalism is defined as - "behavior or thought conforming to the state of nature." I would take that to mean empirically observable reality. I would definitely rather have my mind contaminated by reality as opposed to whatever your bizarre dogma may be. You don't have the slightest idea if any of us were baptized, into what faith, or if we even consider baptism meaningful. Choose your words carefully, they will betray intelligence or ignorance. The only thing that would make me believe in miracles now is if all these nasty trolls would disappear.

If I were to assume that gravity happens as the result of two tethered goats at opposite ends of the universe working in tandem, would I come to a cohesive view of how the universe works? Of course I would not.

Why, then, should I assume a god, for whom there is about as much evidence as there is for the aforementioned goats?

eungchan, you are completely off your trolley and should begin taking the medication again.
