I've just finished watching Religulous and found it to be enjoyable. At just under 40 minutes in, he's interviewing a Senator who believes in Adam, Eve and the talking snake. Not only does he (the Senator) make up words, use words in the wrong context and get lots of basic things wrong, he also has this to say:-

The look on his face is priceless when he realises what he's just said. I almost feel sorry for him.
I would agree that there is an element of making fun, but I think that's his point. That he can do this so easily, picking holes in many aspects, that he really doesn't have to try. They do a lot of it for him with minimal input. There are so many questions that nobody seems to want to answer, and don't. Saying that, there are also people he interviews that do answer him with their beliefs and opinions. There's also this awesome, yet crazy, place in Jerusalem that invents things to allow Jews to circumvent Rabbinic sabbath law.Does anyone else feel compelled to visit both the Creation Museum and The Holy Land Experience? I want to ride the baby Triceratops and take pictures of Jesus being crucified.
