The name of the talk is "Sodom and Gomorrah, the Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories"?  So he's talking about purely mythological events and then stops to talk about how Google operates?  Shouldn't he be talking about God killing children during the flood?  Does he mention God killing innocent children in both Sodom and Gomorrah and then talk about the pure evil of Google?

yeah i got the same impression. this guy makes a lot of good points (in other vids i've seen), but in others, this included, he seems to be really reaching.

At the beginning of most of the biblical lectures he provides updates on recent events for the audience and they frequently have nothing to do with the subject of the lecture its just information that people are interested in hearing. If you had bothered to watch the lecture you would see this clearly. On this particular day he had just been banned and then reinstated from YouTube so the audience was understandably curious to hear the story about that. My guess is that Groth has not watched a single one of these lectures probably because he's afraid he might rethink some of his very triggered positions on the subject. I say that because if he had watched any of these lectures he would clearly see that doctor Jordan Peterson addresses the very top of key raises quite frequently actually.

The bible also says that if you crush your enemies testicles they will not enter heaven when they die. The bible is for nut jobs.

Deuteronomy 23:1

No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the LORD.

I agree with your assessment that the Bible is Crazy Town, but you're misconstruing that verse.  The concept of "heaven" didn't exist to the writer of Deuteronomy, there was only Sheol, the place where the dead (all dead) reside.  The "assembly of the LORD" as worded here refers to a governing body that viewed themselves as having the presence of God with them when they deliberated, which is why if you read the rest of Chapter 23 you find it talking about various laws and even sects of people not allowed into "the assembly".
