There's better explanatory clips and better overall ones. Some older Jeff Dee highlights are great too

RE: Best atheist video of all time
This is why its more often than not completely pointless trying to debate with a theist.The converstation pretty much always ends up going round in circles.

Evidence, logic and reasoning are like water off a duck's back to them. No sooner have you explained your position or debunked their's, and they act as if you haven't even spoken.

The only way to promote reason and critical thinking is to appeal to those who actually have genuine, honest questions. People like this caller are not looking for information or to perhapse address any doubts that they have, they are simply looking to pick a fight and expecting to win.

Remember that the majority of atheists are ex-theists... They've thought long and hard about this stuff and have come to a conclusion. Most theists on the other hand, have believed what they do since before they can remember and don't understand why they believe it. This is why they can't defend their position at all... they believe without thinking.

It seems when people deconvert that there's a period in which they are at risk of reverting back to theism. Its not based on reason, evidence or logic, but fear. Suddenly you realize that the universe is a cold, dark, inhospitable place where nothing gives a shit about us... its enough to put anyone off reality for good. I think that most of those who claim to be "former atheists" were probably actually agnostics who didn't like the harshness of reality.

Not completely pointless if done in a public arena.

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.

The vid in the OP is indeed great.


I would also recommend this series of 3 vids by Theramin Trees. There's just too much good stuff in them.

... more like everything you need to know about how theists pester atheists. Equivocation over the word faith, ignoring the responses or plowing forward without understanding them...

The problem with people like this caller is they call in not to have a discussion and discern the truth, but only to make a point. The conversation goes in circles because they aren't listening. They have already decided they are right and they remain interested only in getting back to "convincing you" of their rightness. It's scraping nails on a blackboard annoying!
