Six posts above your post is the link to it on YouTube.

Thank you! I didn't want to read too much to avoid spoilers.

It sucked.

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

My shock at this is like God: nonexistent. Dodgy

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Instead of saying 'amen' at the appropriate times the say 'Darwin'.
I shit you not.
Dawkins had a few brief soundbites but I get the feeling he was mostly edited out.
Lots of Silverman.

I was willing to give the guy a pass... right up until I hear him saying something like "the universe would put all of you in it's pocket because you're all so special", or because it loves you so much, or some shit! Facepalm

Eliott, actually said atheism isn't about Satan worship anymore. What she meant was people should stop thinking of that woefully misguided cliché when they think of atheists, but of course CNN used the clip.

IKR! Dodgy She says her grandparents lived through the holocaust, then said "god didn't survive Auschwitz". I was like Shocking woot woot DROP dem bombs, baby. Then the "not about devil worship, anymore..."! Oh gawdamit! Facepalm

Meh. Better than an episode of Swamp People. Undecided

They made Atheism look like religion. I mean...REALLY!? A atheist church with a preacher and collections for whatever?

Plus...GAH! I never addressed any of the real issues, arguments or anything really.

Well I had issues being forced out as an atheist.

But the focus of the thing, one third spent on athiest kid in college with believing Christian parents...ok...

Another short amount of time spent on a minister that for now is in the closet.

The remaining about atheist preachers???? Wtf. Atheist churches???

No wonder fucked up theists come here claiming its a religion.

Oh yeah a little from Dawkins and Silverburg.

It was mostly crap.

Terrible for atheists, in my opinion. Atheists don't believe in gods...let's show them in their own church....
Facepalm


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

it has commentary instead of commercials

Thanks for the link.

If I was the Product Manager for a new Atheism 'brand', that's exactly what I'd produce for a Murikan audience. Heavy on touchy-feely and light on facts.

It was personal, it had human moments, there was plenty with which ordinary people could relate.

Coulda been worse.

Now I wonder what a Fox Network documentary on Atheism would look like.

War on Atheism!!!

Actually, every Fox "News" show serves for them as a version of an atheist documentary.

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