Atheist video

I came across a link to this video while reading the commentaries on the JREF site. (see sidebar)

There are also two responses.
I didn't see much sense in them. The bad grammar is entirely within expectations.

For example there was that old chestnut, "Well, those people aren't real Christians TM."
From an atheist viewpoint, there is no substantial difference between a nut who actually believes, and a nut who only claims to believe. We aren't psychic, we can only go by the stated motives.

Am I the only one who finds the accusations of quote mining to be highly ironic?

However, neither "Atheist" or "Re: Atheist" (either of them) are going to have an effect on anyone not already in agreement. There is no common ground to bridge the gap. Theists will say, "So what." to the information presented in "Atheist." Atheists will say the same to the response videos.

Still, it was pretty cool to learn about famous atheists.
Not that a "Who's Who" list of atheists really matters.
It isn't what you believe that counts; it's what you do.

And, as "Re: Atheist (2)" ends: "For more information on Christians, see the Bible in its entirety." Yes, please do, just don't forget the "in its entirety" part.
