Origins & The Big Questions: Conference 2008. Part 5
Brian Dalton and the making of “Mr. Deity”
The highlight of a day filled with heavy-duty science discussion and theological debate was a presentation by the creator of Mr. Deity — Brian Keith Dalton. This series of Internet video clips offered a humorous (and slightly irreverent) look at the day-to-day operations of the universe and the Big Man in charge. Mr. Deity has been a hit both with skeptics and believers alike. It answers such questions as
- What kind of Evil will be allowed in this new universe?
- How do you go about finding a ‘Savior’?
- Why won’t these darned lights work? and
- How do you relate to your girlfriend when she’s the devil (literally)?
Dalton himself plays Mr. Deity, with Jimbo Marshall as Larry, his clipboard-toting assistant; Sean Douglas as Jesus/Jesse; and Amy Rohren as Lucy/Lucifer.
Dalton and his cast performed a series of skits live, including a new episode developed specifically for the conference. The performances were interspersed with behind-the-scenes discussion by Dalton and the rest of the cast about how the series was developed and written. Dalton and his cast also considered a few of the more serious theological issues and discussed the reactions they have gotten from both supporters and critics. A very lively Q & A session concluded the evening.
A must have for Mr. Deity fans.
