atheist game show

Published July 4th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

A Turkish television show is offering contestants what it claims is the “biggest prize ever” — the chance for atheists to convert to one of the world’s major religions.

The show, called “Tovbekarlar Yarisiyor,” or “Penitents Compete,” features a Muslim imam, a Catholic priest, a Jewish rabbi and a Buddhist monk attempting to persuade 10 atheists of the merits of their religion, according to CNN Turk.

    The world’s major religions? So where is Pastafarianism?

  2. DrunkenSailor says:

    Ahmet Ozdemir, deputy director of Turkish channel Kanal T, which will air the show from September, said the program aimed to “turn disbelievers on to God.”

    Yes, and that is why they invite a buddhist monk as buddhist are know for their strong faith in god…

    That just hurts, “Hey! I have a great idea! Let’s turn people’s core beliefs into a game show!” What hurts even more is that there wasn’t someone from the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster there. This is exactly what the major religions seem to do, make as much cash off of themselves as they can.

    So where’s the joke’s punchline? :P

    This is fantastic!
    Have you contacted them about having Pastafarianism as an option? It would be a great way to touch many a person with His Noodly Appendage, and spread the word about the FSM.

    I’m sure that the only reason they have not already included FSMism in their list of major religions, is, with the decreasing number of pirates, they have been unable to locate a practitioner of Pastafarianism to persuade the pasta-less heathens of the true nature of “God”.
    Who better to achieve this than the Prophet of His Noodlyness?
