I am a bit woozy, but here are initial reactions:

I agreed with him throughout most of the movie.

Maher is bad at interviewing. His tactics reminded me of O'Reilly; he dominates the conversation, and if the interviewee actually starts giving an answer of substance (more than a 5 second sound-byte) Maher interrupts. He did not even attempt to hide his partisanship with his questions. He selects fanatics to question and uses Michael Moore-ish scene cuts to single out the worst of their responses.

His sampling of world religions was geared only toward Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

In interviews, he often resorted to generalizations to make his point, ("Jesus preached against the rich") but was unable to quote any scripture in his actual interviews. It looked like he was unprepared and unauthoritative. His evidence had to be added later in the form of text banners and scene cuts. Do some research, man.

The ending was preachy for a guy who claims to be agnostic.

It felt like Maher doing a half-assed attempt at turning Dawkins' material into a movie.

Calling this film a "documentary" is laughable.

Conclusion:
Though I wouldn't recommend anyone using this film in making personal decisions on faith and theology, it was a thoroughly entertaining piece of propaganda. If you want something funny and slightly more intelligent than television, I would recommend it.
That's how I anticipated it would be--I still would love to see it, though. Have you seen Dawkins' "Root of all Evil"? It was a segment on BBC that came out before he wrote The God Delusion. He still interviews mostly fanatics, but he does have full conversations with them, and it's very well done. It's online.

Yeah. His "Enemies of Reason" was pretty good, too. Also online.

whatever guitar it is make sure you play it unplugged. Ive had friends that come home with a guitar that has unholy buzzing on the lower frets or the sides of the frets stick out like barbed wire. so yeah..

4b.Hes raving hes raving!

You know, I've become bored of Blood Mountain, and find it one of the least interesting records in Mastodons' discography.

DEP is boring right now. No upcoming album, no tour that goes through Portland (DAMN them). Glad I'm a newer fan. Would've killed myself between Miss Machine and Ire Works.

Need new record NOWZ!!!

they tour relentlessly. i've seen them once a year since 2003 so i'm not worried about not seeing them live. and waiting for new material shouldn't be a concern. there's plenty of other shit to do, music aside, that'll keep me occupied.

and kicks ass that milk lizard's in a video game. NOW GET SOME SHIT ON ROCK BAND/GUITAR HERO, GUYS. SO I CAN BRAG TO ALL MY FRIENDS THAT I HAVE BEEN NUTTING OVER YOU GUYS SINCE FOREVER.

also, some simple changes in your diet help too.

fewer spoonfuls of hot gravel, maybe eat some vegetables instead.

.....who am i to talk, as far as the us is concerned I eat crocdile washed down with fosters.
