I don't know if anyone else caught the recent two-parter on South Park, but it featured Richard Dawkins as a substitute teacher, among other things.  They ripped on fundamentalist atheists, although the episodes for the most part consisted of more of a cobbled together mix of parodies, including Futurama, Final Fantasy, and Battlestar Galactica.  I was expecting an episode on evolution vs. creationism, but they seem to have taken it a step further by making evolution a foregone conclusion; i.e. sea otters have developed intelligence in only a few centuries worth of evolution.  Ms. Garrison's speech on evolution was pretty funny, and demonstrated just how little your average creationist knows (or cares) about evolution.  All in all I thought they treated atheists fairly, even more so than certain religious groups, and it concluded with a good message.  Strangely enough, Dawkins was actually portrayed as more tolerant and less militant than he is in real life, and they didn't really have anything bad happen to him. :icon_tomato:

You can watch them both here:

I thought the second one was better than the first.
