Yea, that's taking goal post moving to an extreme!

Heck by those standards, people should be doubting my existence - and I am actually still alive!

Both were from Penn & Teller's ep called "The Bible" and yes, it's my favorite of their eps.
I think the Life of Brian point was made also by Dr. Michael Shermer too. My memory of that episode is hazy (I's my favorite, but I haven't watched it in awhile) (yes I am embarrassed by that)
