May 31, 2010 — A classic example of how Fox news fails.

A god that kills people that honestly disbelieve, how can Fox use this to show that believeing in a god is a good thing because he will kill you if you don't.

Are they really this naive?

I think that all they've managed to accomplish here is to expose the most important reason people believe in a vengeful god: fear. It's Pascal's Wager all over again. People don't want to spend all eternity suffering, so they try really hard to believe ridiculous things. Well these are moderately religious people; fundamentalists are a totally different kind of nuts, if I may add.

Fox News fails at attempted humor. I didn't know they were doing satire now though. How can someone trust a news source that makes jokes like this? It's like getting your news from The Onion or Daily Show. My grandpa trusts Faux News though and says if you're watching anything else you're being fed lies. Hahaha, poor guy.

"Anti-God" HOW THE HELL CAN YOU BE ANTI-GOD WHEN YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD?! Thanks for your stupidity AGAIN Faux News.
Uh... are these atheists even real? I've never heard of their books and they lack the cool logical refinement of Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris. If this is Faux's attempt at a joke... it's a bad one...

They're DEFINITELY fakes... I looked up "the god scam" on amazon... and nothing came up.


Ummm.... this is something you would expect to see on The Daily Show... I have NEVER before seen Fox News do Charicatures.... *is weirded out*

Of course they were actors (pretty bad ones too). You didn't think they've really died, did you?

Anyway, I think this is a new low, even for Fox News.

I think the title of this video is redundant. "Fox fails" would have been sufficient.

Actually, now that I think about it, just "Fox" might have been enough.

Wow... Talk about a poor poor attempt at humor.

Amazing what they're resorting to, an awful mixture of Saturday Night Live and The Daily Show.

Dont worry, this was a short lived show.

I think the most shocking part of the Video is the shows audience, cheering and laughing when one of the "Atheists" is smote by god. I know this is an attempt at satire but it just fails on so many levels.

They tried to put atheism in a bad light with this and just shot themselves in the foot.
