I have given up all hope for the US newsmedia, tt`s all just sensationalist and useless shit and dribble.

I watch BBC News and for American news I watch the Canadian national.

This was recently on the BBC:





Far more informative than the dribble coming out of Fox News, CNN, MSNBC combined in a year.

That was fascinating. Eritrea is certainly a fascinating country.


Regarding the OP, I'm sure it'll be a bunch of shit talking about "omg how can these people be moral without God it's such a shock they must all be secret theists!" shit.

All atheism is is a lack of belief in God. There's no holy/holey book, no prophet/profit, no belief or reading of the tea leaf, it's simply a lack of belief in God.
I don't understand why a documentary on Atheism is going to document exactly?
Wild generalizations most likely. I could be an atheist and believe the world is 8,767 days old or I could be an atheist and believe aliens did it or I could be an atheist and believe the big bang and evolution explain our existence.

Some humanist group posted a clip of it. I watched. They used that family like Reggie was used on Wife Swap. Anyone see how they painted Dawkins and Maher as the bad guys?

Typical tactic of majorities in our species history. When the majority cant outright oppress someone, they use them as tokes so when others speak out they can hide behind their tokens.

They'll probably talk and interview David Silverman since he's always talking around on this cable news networks, then highlight some prominent authors texts like Dawkins or Harris... then go to some little atheist community groups like an ACA and see some protests they've done and talk to people there. That's how they like to do their programs.

I'd guess the whole point is "Look, they're just like us, except they have more free time!", but that seems like a really boring TV special.

You mean we don't get together once a week, sing some songs, take up a collection and plot world domination???

Oh right....

That's them "devout" sons-a-bitches....

I guess there will be live commentary during commercials.

There used to plans to do it routinely. It'd be the same thing we do every night... then muff's went rouge and removed The Brain from his avatar and sig.

I'll record it and chime in with my thoughts. The written story was written by CNN's religious writer so it was slanted and some of the commentary was insulting. It was written with caveats and first-person remarks, which is ALWAYS the sign of good reporting. :-)

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.
