Late night comedian Bill Maher expressed disbelief Friday that 60 percent of Americans are “stupid” enough to believe the tale of Noah’s ark is literally true and questioned why individuals worship God, who he described as a “psychotic mass murderer.”
“Isn’t life hard enough without making s*** up out of thin air to f*** with yourself?” he asked.
Maher — who is atheist and produced an anti-religion film years ago — said he believes that the tale of Noah’s ark is not only false, but also “immoral.”

“It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it and his name is God,” he said.

“What kind of tyrant kills everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at? I mean, besides Chris Christie,” the controversial comedian continued.
Maher then provided a theory on America’s alleged moral decline.
“You know, conservatives are always going on about how Americans are losing their values and their morality. Well, maybe it’s because you worship a guy who drowns babies,” he said.
