Instead of saying 'amen' at the appropriate times the say 'Darwin'.

Wow, that's.... beyond cringeworthy

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

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.

We don't waste our sundays on bullshit.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

They had to say something stupid every now and then just to make sure they felt how they were in check... like describing Dawkins at one point as the father of atheism.

It was everything expected, though I thought the including of Jerry Dewitt and other preacher talks was stuff I didn't know if they would put it in. It's got several.. well at least they did that tiny slim moments like that and acknowledging even some atheists don't like David Silverman.

I thought of something else, while I didn't see the first 10 minutes, maybe it was in there; though from what I saw, there was no a single mention of anything having to do with religion outside of christianity. They totally held to the angle of Christianity is America and that's what this is "contrasting"

Watched it with my wife who would not use the word atheist to describe herself. She is not particularly religious. When she attends church, she just takes what she wants from it (mainly community and spirituality) and gives not a thought to all the other crap that comes along with it. The good thing that came out of the show for her, is that she said "I am basically a humanist". Hopefully, other people also took a similar step.

I think the atheist college student's parents are real douche bags.
They are pathetically shameful....shows the harm that religion causes.

I feel sorry for the kid.

I wish I had cable so I could watch it. Maybe it will be on Hulu or Netflix sometime.

It could have been better. The part that I really facepalmed was at 37:10 when they said Dawkins was the father of atheism and that Dewitt's son "converted" to atheism. It is crap like this that permeate the illusion that the lack of religion is somehow a religion.
