** Penn & Teller Bullshit: Alcoholics Anonymous **
March 5, 2011 by Steven Slate 32 Comments
The comedy/magic duo Penn & Teller, have been doing a show called Bullshit!
for several years now where they expose scams and bust cultural myths.
One classic episode examined Alcoholics Anonymous. It’s a great
primer on what’s wrong with the organization. With all the traffic
I’m getting right now from people interested in Charlie Sheen’s claims
that AA is a cult and an ineffective solution for addiction, I thought this
would be a good time to post it.
Specifically, they cover the basic facts that addiction is not a real
disease, that AA is indeed religious faith healing, that it has a 5 percent
success rate, and that it is no more effective than rates of natural
recovery. If you want to know more about these claims, explore this site
for in-depth discussion, if you’re a newbie who wants the basics
presented in an entertaining form, watch the videos below.
