Has comedy provided a better vehicle to discuss "god" than religion?
This recent episode of Louie is one example of how comedy shows some of the absurdities that religious concepts of god can lead us to. South Park has Jesus living in the children’s hometown dealing with common problems. Family Guy and The Simpsons have both had episodes where the main character started their own religions based on a personal relationship with god.
If we stop taking the conversation seriously, and admit that any answer that states “this is the right way” inevitably leads to argument and assumptions rather than conversation, aren’t we able to learn more? Or do we need organized faith in order to have the conversation?
