New channel for our YouTube list.

Thanks to donotwant for pointing me to this source.

There is a wealth of debates on this channel.

I'm now listening to the one that Matt Dillahunty spoke of on a recent Atheist Experience episode.

RE: Atheist / Agnostic Informational Resource Library
This thread is such a wealth of information! I'm in the reading-everything-I-can-get-my-hands-on phase so it's great and overwhelming at the same time. I'm a new nonbeliever, and while I know I don't believe in God anymore, saying "I'm an atheist" still makes me uncomfortable. Childhood indoctrination runs deep.

Anyway, I'm curious which books and resources people have been pointed to by Christians after coming out as atheists. Is there a thread or resource discussing that? For example, I know my dad will immediately hand me a copy of The Case for Christ (assuming I get up the nerve to have that conversation), and I'd like to be familiar with this and similar books before he does so. I'm a librarian, and I can't help but do my research on both sides of the fence! Any thoughts?

RE: Atheist / Agnostic Informational Resource Library
I tried to read case for christ. I don't remember exactly how far I got before my eyes rolled completely around in their sockets and I had to put it down. Facepalm

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

These books should be added to the library - they are bestsellers in the UK and have been pushed by richard dawkins. They are all about a revolutionary, atheist, humanitarian politician, link here - http://www.thechroniclesofhope.com

I read it years ago when I was very strong in my faith and I remember liking it. I also read Letters from a Skeptic at the time, as I was dating a not-so-understanding atheist and looking for ways to defend my faith against his constant attacks. I'm planning to reread both of those books now that I'm no longer drinking the Christian koolaid. Amazing how much difference a couple years and a new outlook makes.

Here are some statistics concerning the traffic of the links posted in the OP, for those of you who are interested in that sort of stuff.

Near. A reminder we watched that documentary by mormons for mormons about what people think of mormons last night. You should add it.
