"The lack of curiosity is the Dementor that sucks all hope, joy, possibility and beauty out of the world. The dull torpid acedia that does not care to find out, that has no hunger and thirst for input, understanding and connection will desertify the human landscape and land our descendants squarely in the soup. Do we want our species to make its way, foreheads thrust out, knuckles grazing the ground, into a barren of tedium and brutish unquestioning blindness, or do we want to skip through the world filled with wonder, curiosity and an appetite for discovery?"

COMEDIANS ON RELIGION (one)

manquer:

A post for Anna.

This is all I managed to find in my bookmarks for now, but as I come across others I will add them.

Not a comedian, but Stephen Fry’s views on whether or not the Catholic Church is a force for good in the world, part one.

This list is full of so much win. Because comedy is a method for seeking truth through absurdity, comedians are often the best people to turn to when it comes to separating religious truth from fiction. I love it.

QI [6x12] "Food" ~ A Dalek Conspiracy

  • David Mitchell:  “It’s like trying to police a country with Daleks.”
  • Jimmy Carr:  “Which would never work with the disabled access we’ve got now. The Daleks can get everywhere.”
  • David Mitchell:  “Jimmy… did you say… that you think… that disabled access is a Dalek conspiracy?”
  • Jimmy Carr:  “Yes. That is exactly what I said.”

  • Stephen Fry:  What's the most famous line from a Tarzan film?
  • Ronni Ancona:  Oh, "Me Tarzan, you Jane."
  • Stephen Fry:  Yes, except of course it never happened.
  • Ronni Ancona:  What?!
  • David Mitchell:  Why do these films always forget to put their most famous lines in?

  • Stephen:  People haven't read the Bible much these days, but I can read to you from Genesis, Chapter 7. "And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Of every--"
  • Alan:  Why did they talk like that?
  • Stephen:  Well, he spoke Hebrew, didn't he, dear. This is a translation into English, you see.
  • Alan:  [covers face with hand]
  • Stephen:  They spoke like that when they really could speak English, Alan. I think in five-hundred years time, when they hear the things we've said, and perhaps even things you've said, they might go, "Jesus--"
  • Alan:  Don't pick on me! You're quoting from a mythical being!

Alan Davies: Is it true that you gave Prince Charles, for his wedding present, some coffee made out of weasel shit? Stephen Fry: Mmm, not exactly. [pauses] It was Cambodian… weasel vomit. It’s a coffee that these weasels eat, and then—Alan Davies: They eat the beans, and then from what they excrete— Stephen Fry: No, vomit. They vomit, and the acid in the stomach kind of softens it, and it’s apparently very flavoursome. [pauses] I just felt it was something he wouldn’t have!

"A telephone is a fantastically rude thing. I mean, it’s like going, “speak to me now, speak to me now, speak to me now.” You know, if you went into someone’s office and banged on their desk and said, “I will make a noise until you speak to me,” it would be considered unbelievably rude."
