‘God Did It’: Funny or Die Unveils the Creationist Answer to Cosmos
Some creationists aren’t too happy about the new Cosmos reboot on Fox and have demanded equal time. Well, Funny or Die created a Creationist Cosmos short to assuage their concerns, hosted by none other than Timothy Simons, known best as Jonah on HBO’s Veep.
Creationist Cosmos looks at science very differently, with the host holding up a Bible and saying, “What do we know about black holes? What are they, really? They don’t exist. If it doesn’t say anything about it in this book, then you don’t need to think about it.”
From there, it’s not a very complicated show. A creationist version of Cosmos is basically “God did it” over and over and over, and that’s exactly what the Funny or Die video conveys. And when confronted with evidence that people like Neil DeGrasse Tyson could explain in scientific detail, our creationist host simply explains that big things are “not for you to question or know,” and/or that they were planted by Satan as a ruse.
