religious people are indeed quite the hipocrates. Do people really believe that god told noah to build a big boat and take 2 of each animal to help repopulate the world? Really!? So what happened if the 2 elephants had only male or female offspring? where'd the rest of the elephants all over the world come from. Are you telling me that EVERY single animal pair had both male and female offspring that could then have more of that animal. And what about genetic problems from those animals' offspring then having babies with each other. And if Noah's family was the only humans left, where all the people who look different (asians, dark skinned people, etc) come from?

Gee and the "biblical account that the Earth was created 5200 years ago". Really!? Intelligent people actually believe this one? And that dinosaur bone that is millions of years old? Where'd that come from? And how about even a stone bowl used by people that dates back, oh I don't know, 5201 years ago. Where'd that come from?

And what about the people who pray for someone who is sick or hurt to get better and then the person dies or ends up in a parapelegic or worse. How come God doesn't help? Then the hipocracy and rationalization comes in with the "Well it was just their time" or "God doesn't interfere with human life" crap. Right, God Loves humans soooo much that he allows AIDS, Cancer, Alzheimers, SIDS, child rapists, and other horrors to exist. Religion and/or peoples religious beliefs has been the base reason for almost every single war in the history of humanity. People today kill each other in the name of some religion or another. And there are so many of them. why is each religion arrogant enough to believe that theirs is the only one that is right? I could of course go on and on but my fingers might get tired of typing.

Religion = Power and control.

To believe requires faith, not intellect; which makes it easy for people to subscribe to a religion.

And, just in case it's all true (LOL) the believers have covered their donkeys!

Even with the typos, he's right.
If that bigot Jerry Falwell can be religious, we all can. If he went to Heaven, we all will.

Mankind is full of hypocrates. That seems to be part of our nature. God is to be loved and never fully understood. Being a supreme being must mean he has thick skin with all of the shots taken at him.

Maher walks around with an endless smirk on his face - the kind that says "I am smarter than all of you". He is smart enough to pick topics in a way where he has the advantage. It seems to be popular to make a film slanted the way the maker wants it and call it a documentary. I do look forward to seeing it because it has to be funny - a comedy, not a documentary.

Do you know the meaing of the word "hipocracy", I think you need to look it up, cause I understand what you were saying, but your usage of the word is way off :)

To me, the word hipocracy should be used to refer to liberals who says they fight for freedom and respect for "all" beliefs, religions and people; yet they pick, target and mock A SPECIFIC belief (read: Christian -I guess when they say "all", they really mean "all except the ones we don't like").

Christians believe God created the whole universe and you're asking if we believe whether God is able to ensure the animals will procreate and repopulate the earth?

Carbon dating has been proven to be a very shaky "science", look it up.

By the way, muslims and jews believe in same creation of the earth by God, why do I never hear from people like you the same mocks? This must be part of the liberals' "freedom and respect for all..."
