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.

    Wow… just wow.

    It goes to show at what desperation it takes for people to remain faithful. If you need reaffirming of this nature to keep your faith, then GIVE IT UP. I’m godless and completely content and happy. The average man’s need for constant gradification is like hooking up with the most annoying, ugly, desease ridden girl on the planet, and then convincing yourself over and over again that she was the right choice, and that it beats being single.

    Seriously though, could someone seed this with subtitles? I really want to see it.

    I just wonder how long you have to stay converted for. I’m a Pastafarian but that’s mainly because it’s fun.

    Needs a Pirate for balancing IMO

    Now why can’t we have game shows like this in the USA? I guess mainstream TV in the YooEssAye is hopeless and forever bound to be aiming at the intellectual level of an 8 year old. Sort of like those programs they already have on Univision and Telemundo.

    How exactly would the religious people try to convince the atheists?

  7. daqq says:

    @rubikscube:
    Using old arguments that have been disproved over and over again. Or maybe they’ll just do the good old “convert to our religion or burn in eternal hellfire (or other version of the afterlife for naughty people)”.

    Becoming a buddhist doesn’t require renouncing a disbelief in god, many buddhists are atheists.
