Challenge to Believers #2

23 April 2012, 08:23

Good evening folks, I am Lucifer, the new host of the--Challenge to Believers--- game show! After the popularity of our pilot episode, we have received massive sponsorship deals to really give this show a professional makeover. So welcome to another exciting episode of Challenge to Believersssssss! The only show on the News24 network where YOU are the star and right down there in the comments box… and well, me and Contrarian, we’re just here to make sure the rules are observed hahaha!

Let me also mention that round one ended with a spectacular FAIL by the believers. Yessss, unfortunately it was not their night. But you atheists our there should not get too proud too soon, after all, it’s only been ONE ROUND, WITH MANY MORE TO COME! HAHAHAHAHA!

Let’s take a quick peek at….. THE SCOREBOARD!

THE SCORETALBE AFTER ROUND 1 STANDS AT!

COMMON SENSE 1 | FAITH 0

For those who missed out on our first show, get all the brain-stopping action from the believers’ epic battle against common sense, right here! http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/Challenge-to-Believers-1-20120419

Now without further ado, let me present the SECONNNDDDD CHALLLLEEEEEEEENGGGGGEEEEEE TOOO BELIEVERRRRRRSSSSSSS! Contrarian take it away!

Contrarian: Thank you Lucifer… I just want to mention something; during our opening show, the ratings counter was suspiciously ‘nonfunctional’. I don’t know if we have a religious rat in the broadcaster that is responsible for that little subversion, but let’s see how it goes this round before we make any unfounded accusations.

Lucifer: Fair and composed as always Contrarian! That’s LOGIC for you!

Contrarian: Ok, so tonight’s challenge to believers is………………drumroll………….cymbal smash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PROVE YOUR FAITH BY MOVING MOUNTAINS!

Lucifer: Yes that’s right viewers, in this second challenge, our believers will be given the opportunity to send us the links to their youtube videos where they demonstrate the awesome power of faith even in microscopic quantities.

Contrarian: Valid videos demonstrating the power of faith will have one of the following paranormal or supernatural feats performed by believers without any camera tricks or special effects whatsoever!

1.       Levitation

2.       Walking on low viscosity fluids

3.       Raising people from the grave

After all, any believer has to believe the infallible word of god right? And the word of god says…

Lucifer: Errrrrrrr, say what Contrarian?

Contrarian: You know, the bible!

Lucifer: I don’t like that book very much, it talks badly of me and the authors gave me no chance to set the record straight before publishing it.

Contrarian: Oh… yeah, bBut I like you just fine Lucifer, even if you are just a scapegoat excuse and figment of the superstitious minds of believers.

Lucifer: Hey now Contrarian that hurt… believers, not me HAHAHA!

Contrarian: Anyway, as I was saying, Jesus plainly and lucidly states in the bible in Matthew 17:20:

"Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

So, this seems like a perfectly clear example and fair test to anyone claiming to have faith in god!

Lucifer: I hate to admit it but the bible is perfectly REASONABLE on this particular challenge, so I’m excited to see how our believers will perform tonight!

Contrarian: Absolutely, I can’t wait to finally see a TRUE BELIEVER demonstrate to us the power of faith, the validity of bible, and the existence of god! Everyone, give our brave believers a round of applause!

Lucifer: (Applauds furiously) Oh absolutely! So there we have it folks, it’s time to get the show started, go down into the comments box and cause a STIR!!!!!!!!!!!!
