The Atheist's Dream - Kirk Cameron's "Career"

If you take a second to look at Kirk Cameron's career track, you will see that he is the Actor's Nightmare. At the beginning, there was Disney and Herbie the Love Bug; a great start. Sadly, he then started down a slope towards sharing screen time with a slumping Robin Williams and Kurt Russell in his Behind the Music P.O.F. (price of fame) movie moment - The Best of Times.

Suddenly, the turnaround came and he was cast in Growing Pains with the acting powerhouses of both Alan Thicke and future anorexia victim Tracey Gold. Cameron was set to once again fall to obscurity. By embracing dogmatic faith and befriending some Australian weirdyass who thinks bananas are the worst thing to happen to atheists since human eyes, he was primed to do the Left Behind series, now fully catering to the Christian set and losing nearly his entire fan base. Way to go, teen star number 15!

Following Cameron's "career", you'll see that he, personally, is the atheist's dream. If there really was a loving God up there in the sky and he/she/it was as Cameron believes, he/she/it should be showering gifts of happiness, fame, fortune, popularity, and riches on him for doing the right things with his life. The fact that he is a virtual unknown now, only passing the lips of 30-somethings as an afterthought or a flubbed answer to a Trivial Pursuit question, means he is truly left behind - intellectually, culturally, and socially.

As an interesting exercise, go to his IMDB site and see how many titles you recognize after Growing Pains. Seriously, the whole of creation testifies to the horror that is Cameron's post-Pains life.

...yeah, I only knew one as well. Enjoy your "perfectly fitting" banana, dipshit.

he's a wanker, but I'm starting to feel sorry for him now.

I always counter the banana argument with the watermelon argument.
