Watch Ricky Gervais Commit the Genetic Fallacy

From 1:28 - 1:50 - Ricky Gervais commits the genetic fallacy, as Richard Dawkins cheers him on.

Needed: Gervais in my logic class.  :)

I may show this in my MCCC Logic classes as an example of irrationality, when we get to the section in our text on informal logical fallacies (to include the genetic fallacy).

See: "Why Ricky Gervais Should (Logically) Reconsider God."
