Brian (the anthropomorphized dog) is portrayed as the most intelligent character on the animated series. He shows his copy of Dawkins’ book to a girl he is interested in.

Granted, this is comedy. Nevertheless, anything that draws attention to books like “The God Delusion” is a good thing (imo.) Seth MacFarlane’s satire of family values is wonderfully heretical.

Family guys is full of fun little gems.

I use that particular graph as well. However, I have added Dubya underneath the creationist category.

Creationism illustrated.

Note: I agree with some but not all of the goals of yoism.org. I just happened to find the Family Guy creationism clip at that site.

In the episode where Brian goes back to finish college at Brown, there is a scene where he walks by the sports stadium. Ever notice who their opponent is?

Yup, “Board of Education”.

Ha! And you know who teaches cell biology at Brown U right? None other than our very own Kenneth R Miller, who testified in the 2005 Dover Pennsylvania trial on behalf of evolutionary science. Very clever.

Don’t take coupons from giant chickens.
Greased up guys are impossible to catch.
Don’t accept popsicles from weird old men.
Evil monkeys aren’t as evil as they seem.
Pimples, however are very evil.
Everything works out if you do whatever you want.
Don’t trust people in checkered suits.
Don’t buy volcano insurance.
You can’t eat a stapler.
Don’t do ‘Toad.’
TV is freakin’ sweet.

From The Simpsons:
The float should have read, “Non-pedophile Priests.”
