Beware the Believers

This video is an indictment on the atheists and to a lesser extent liberals. I came across this from Mark Shea at Inside Catholic. It's a creative and fascinating video put out by the advertisers of Expelled (a documentary film by Ben Stein to be released on April 18). It may be difficult at first for some to discern if the video is paroding atheists or believers, but if you watch carefully there is no doubt that it is mocking Richard Dawkins and the New Atheists. Starring: Richard Dawkins as the M.C. (wearing a backwards cap with a Darwin fish logo) The Science (or Scientific Method?) as 'the Machine'. Christopher Hitchens as part of the posse (with the 'I love alcohol' bandanna) Charles Darwin as himself. Andrew Carnegie as himself (wearing no shirt and a huge dollar sign on a chain and a pimp hat). Eugenie Scott as a dancing harlot. Special appearance by Aristotle. Sam Harris (I think it's him and he also wears a backwards cap with a Darwin fish logo). Daniel Dennett

The Lyrics:

My name is D to the I to C to the K, Yeah I'm the Dickie D, I gots my PhD and comin' your way on the Youtube to bust your world view so just listen to me and don't you argue.

You see, this battle's been ragin' since Zeus was on the bottle, 'tween Science like Democritus and Faith like Aristotle,who said the mover was unmovin' like some magic trick but that's no good logic, my posse is far too quick for this religious sthick.

Cos science is the only way to know y'all, you stand with me y'all, or you can fall y'all

So go ahead and take your pick...

ES: Yeah you tell him Rick ...

Darwin: Cos if you don't know me ...

RD: YOU DON'T KNOW DICK!!

Chorus : Yeah he's the Dick to the Dawk to the PhD,he's smarter than you he's got a science degree! Yeah he's the Dick to the Dawk to the PhD, he's smarter than you he's got a science degree!

SH: On the shoulders of midgets we built up this machine,

DD: YEAH!!!

RD: Science silenced that watchdog wingnut Paleygrowing stronger and harder almost daily, storming Wilber by force as we framed the discourse that faith and science are split in schismatic divorce.

Then Darwin took to the seas to see what no one had seen, and ever since then we've been increasingly keen, they may never adore us, but they'll no longer ignore us,

give it to 'em PZ hit these BLEEP with the chorus!!!

Chorus: Yeah he's the Dick to the Dawk to the PhD, he's smarter than you he's got a science degree! The Dick to the Dawk to the PhD, he's still smarter than you he studied biology!

Then there was Darrow dukin' it out with the straight and the narrow, a ragin' bull in the ring, he did his thing, and took it on the chin like he was Bobby De Niro.

We might have lost at Scopes, beaten down by the dopes, and the stooges of popes, but in losin' we coped, becomin' more than we hoped, creationists slipped on the soap of their own slippery slope.

What was impossible, improbable, is now wholly unstoppable untoppleable, the Dick Doc'll roll up as you creationists foldup

you haters talkin' bull, don't you know that this Dick is un-cock-frickin' blockable ...

Chorus: Yeah he's the Dick to the Dawk to the PhD, he's smarter than you he's got a science degree! The Dick to the Dawk to the PhD, he's still smarter than you he studied biology!

Now the machine of our making, sees culture ripe for the taking,

Cos I'm the rappinest, rabidest atheist who unlike the Catholic, Muslim or even the Jew, believes that no God but science could ever be true, hell if I was dyslexic I'd even hate "dog" too.

Time to open your eyes, get yourself wise, the age of science will rise to be religion's demise, and while you churchies all cry, shouting 'why God oh why,' I'll still be poppin' my collar earning more dollars than Allah.

Hollah!

Chorus : Yeah he's the Dick to the Dawk to the PhD, he's smarter than you he's got a science degree! The Dick to the Dawk to the PhD, he's still smarter than you he studied biology!

Chorus : Yeah he's the Dick to the Dawk to the PhD,he's smarter than you he's got a science degree! The Dick to the Dawk to the PhD, he's still smarter than you he studied biology!

The Dawkins crowd is convinced that this has to have been made by someone on their side because no theist could POSSIBLY be intelligent or clever enough to come up with something like this.

Riiiight.

Right,for a biologist.. very smart indeed,as the "amount" of "rationale" why this can't come from a theist...e.g. good thing am not a biologist.

Actually: the buzz around the video was that no *creationist* could have made it. Creationists are a subset of theists. And not necessarily the cutting edge when it comes to sophistication of thought and expression.

it's neither an endorsement for creation nor an indictment of evolution. it's just good humored satire that does give dawkins a gentle ribbing. dawkins is exceptionally arrogant and refuses to debate anyone with a dissenting view. definitely deserving of parody if not more.

I''m not sure where you got Andrew Carnegie from. That's Daniel Dennett in the pimp hat.

I'd be particularly interested in learning who the various expelled scientists are, and the guy w. the communicator.
