Wow. That's grotesque in about eighty different ways.

The prize should be salvation.

salvation as the prize?
Well, I'm not sure how the theology of that works. Actually, the producers are (or claim to be) offering salvation (as a bonus). Of course the "real" prize is the trip.

My first thought (after "they've got to be kidding") was: they expect to get a conversion in a one hour show with breaks for commercials? What's that --ten minutes with the imam, ten with the priest, ten with the rabbi, ten with the monk and ten to make a decision?

Are the atheists who hold out (as any self respecting atheist would) winners or losers?

Do they get bonus points for ecstacy?

Being a reality show I imagine the contestants will just be pretending so that they get a chance for the car(so to speak). I would be curious how they plan to change minds. I would also like to add that Buddhism doesn`t actually have a GOD so you can actually be Atheist and Buddhist at the same time.

Right. You would have to have the right kind of Buddhist (new pure land, maybe) And even then you can;t be sure he/she is a theist. And a Buddhism would never require theism in a convert, or even permanent commitment to Buddhism. I would be a Buddhist for a day in order to win a free trip to Tibet.

On second thought going to Tibet now would too much of a downer and I could be sure that the Chinese would be controlling things very tightly because of the Uirghar situation. Oh, well,
