If the programming is just some idiots screaming about how stupid religion is (some youtube stuff I've seen) rather than insightful and intelligent arguments or debates I'd prefer they didn't do it at all.

A bit like this forum really... Big Grin

Actually, I agree...

How much of it will be devoted to what would be essentially "preaching"?

If on the other hand if its used to systematically debunk the religious argument, using reason and logic, then great. And also, hopefully break some of the stereotypes and down right offensive characterizations of atheists, who are after all ordinary people.

I think I just found my new favorite utterance. I am so stealing this!

Oh I'm sure it would have some of both. I'm a bit apprehensive about the idea too, but then again many youtubers out there who do good work would be inspired to have a more mainstream dedicated forum to put their work into. It may be the catalyst for some really good content. We won't know until we try, I guess.

I'd like to see a dedicated debate show that would bring on heavyweights from both sides of the argument but have a better back and forth style of debate than you see in most formal ones out there. I've seen some really good debates happen when they are allowed a more "conversation" style debate to happen.

I dunno, it could go either way but I think it's a good platform for some really good discussion to be brought to a broader audience.

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.

It would be nice if they would televise some of the conventions. Many of us aren't able to attend so it would be cool to watch the speeches and such as they happen.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

But I though we already had a TV channel? Consider

Waiting for the backlash/backpeddling on this one......

Until then, I'm watching HGTV.

Why should it be our goal to infect every facet of society?

Are we becoming anti-religious zealots?

"It’s part of our strategy of going where we are not.”

Why the hell should we have a strategy?
