Unimaginatively Appealing to Lower Instincts

Is there anything more... I can't think of the word... banal, unimaginative, predictable, hackneyed than the Newsweek quote trumpeted by the apparent har-har fest for atheists, The God Who Wasn't There?

Irreverently lays out the case that Jesus Christ never existed

Wouldn't it be more intriguing to "reverently lay out the case" or, alternatively, to irreverently lay out the case that He did exist? Nothing is as damaging to atheists' case as the inescapable impression that the drive to be irreverent precedes their conclusions.

The website says,

Holding modern Christianity up to a bright spotlight, this bold and often hilarious new film asks the questions few dare to ask.

Ahh, yes, those brave souls are asking questions nobody ever thought to ask before! Nobody has ever questioned the claims of Christianity before! Why didn't someone think of this earlier?

Their intellectual vanity and historical ignorance is comical.

One awaits with great anticipation the sequel to this work, "The Prophet That Wasn't Real", a har-har-har takedown of Islam, from the same production team. Of course, while the artistic community in America cannot even bring itself to say the name "Theo van Gogh" in any commemorative sense, I daresay they do remember what happened to him, and why.

So we will never see any "art" works denegrating Mohammed or Islam such as we commonly see about Christ and Christianity. Because when all is said and done, the artistic community in the United States, especially the Hollywood branch, is made up of abject, bootlicking cowards.

Ah, what did you expect, that they would lay out the case for the Natural Law?

They've a vested interest in Christ NOT being the real deal.
