while I did find that south park episode funny overall

I did think that the Dawkins-Garrison relationship wasn't anchored to anything in the story, nor did it have any point

th science/rational view does not need to flaky religious views to be justified

seriously, the episode where the B story was Cartman got people to eat in reverse, inserting food below and poo coming out the mouths, when the A stroy line was all the adults turning atheist to ensure their kids weren't molested by priests

was a much clearly and on point, point about miltoast atheists

I seen a connection....

At first dawkins found garrison to be like 'one of the guys' as a positive attribute.

Then look how 'rational' dawkins reacted when he found out garrison used to be a man... he acted in an irrational (and hypocritical) way.

Not that I think those guys attempt to make any real points, as much as create situations we can relate to so we can either laugh at (or... be insulted by).

But I think *one* point may be; no single person can ever be 100% rational in all situations - and because of that - conflicts will always be present whether they are over a groups name or land.

Assuming the 'anchor' point was (indicated by how the 2 part episode ended); 'some people will never learn - and will always be addicted to their desires'

so, it was really one of their weaker critiques then.

because that was hardly a stand out

sort of like the Penn & Teller Bullshit episode on NASA

they came up with reasonable critques, but it was still pretty soft.

The thing is - is there any basis Dawkins would actually react in such a manner??

Tho I am certain the most rational person on this planet is capable of irrationality in *some* situation.

We are after all, only human.

A weak point?? well, is it socially significant?- I am inclined to say it is.

Its the old 'know ones own limitations/weaknesses' lesson, which I think is important for positive growth.

But then again.... we may be reading way too much into some 'silly cartoon'.

??

I'd be interested in hearing the writer/creator's thoughts on that episode. Some of their stuff comes across to me as absolutely brilliant - for all I know its never intended.. lol

exactly

it's not like Ms Garrison was particularly hot enough to make anyone lose their mind
