Penn's Sunday School
A co-worker recommended this Podcast to me. I've only heard one episode so far, but I really enjoyed it. If you're a Penn and Teller fan, or a fan of atheism and Podcasts, you might want to check this out.

The episode from last Sunday is called: "I've Raped Everyone I want to."
It's a great response to people who ask, "If there's no God, what's to stop you from raping and killing?" Penn's response is, "Why? Do you have a list of people you want to rape and kill? Because I've already raped and killed everyone I want to rape and kill." No Laughat

Good stuff!

Just listened to the Gilbert Gottfried episode (#7) and the "I've Raped Everyone I Want To" (#21).

It is indeed good stuff.

RE: Penn's Sunday School
To some extent, I started considering atheism as a viable "path" after listening to Penn's podcast. Before that I wrote off atheists as smug contrarians at best, and angry knowitall douchebags in general. Even Penn's appearances as guest on other people's shows (Carolla) made me roll my eyes. But listening to Penn's Sunday School helped me realize that his world view is very level headed and sense-making, and fun. The show is now a regular on my itunes.

I always wondered why people consider someone who has thoroughly thought stuff over a "know-it-all douchebag".

Mainly because the only ones I had ever come across or been made aware of (as a Christian, at the time) tended to be very confrontational and activist about it. The ones who made it known that they were atheists and whose stated purpose was to bring religion down or protest all things religious. I'm just saying - that was my pre-Penn's Sunday School misinformed impression of atheists.
