...and we didn't come from monkeys you atheistic pinko meat-head.

There's at least two true statements there.

Never watched Archie. Did see the UK equivalent. Doubt that they ever had this kind of discussion in it.

At least one academician I am aware of says that we didn't "come from monkeys", we are monkeys. To be fair I don't know if he has his PhD yet.

Yep.

And we are 'meat-heads', in a sense.

The atheist "meathead" was the hero. Few social commentary shows have risen to the level of "All in the Family"

Agreed.

It was an amazing show, using an extremely flawed guy to poke fun at society's prejudices. He was a raving bigot, but he was funny. And I don't recall that he was ever mean-spirited at all.

I was lucky enough to be watching first-runs when I was young. I'm not sure how well it would translate into the 21st century though.

So it turns out (as usual) that the US show was a remake of the UK one.

Here's a clip:

Jesus was English!

Looking for the equivalent UK clip I came across this:

Dave Allen's thoughts about Adam and Eve

I liked Dave Allen.

I only mentioned it because I referred to him as an academician (which most people think of as a professor or equivalent). I've linked him here before, including the video he did where he made that statement (and backed it up).
