'new atheism' feels like a comparable movement, similar time as well and I bet overlapping fan bases
it was so popular its hard to pin any specific behavior to it. and it was already established and pacified for my age group, watched because everyone else was already watching it, not really indicative of a new milieuDo you think it had a noticeable effect on their behaviour, humour etc?
Perhaps we can consider both this and @boxedjoy's assertion to be correct. In this case, I'm using their words as a springboard to dive into what they could have been trying to say. So its gnosis, and not science.Interesting to pit that against Adam Curtis' contention,
"At its heart, South Park has a touching faith in human beings. That despite their absurdities and flaws, people have the capacity to create a better world."
