Ask An Atheist
Mr. Deity is one of the most creative religion-based satires I've seen. They made a splash on YouTube years ago and then disappeared. Later they came out with a whole new season on Crackle.com. Then they disappeared again.

Some people have all the "luck". Thanks to a natural brain disorder, Temporal-Lobes Epilepsy, they are able to "see God". I can't help but wondering how big a role disorders like these played in the development the world's religions. Whatever the answer, I think temporal-lobes seizeres can help us learn a lot about our own beliefs, and experiences.
