Oldie but a goodie.
Thumbsup

I remember the first time I saw that video. I think a lot of people who are freshly deconverted have all had that, "I remember the way it made me felt the first time I saw it."

I think finding others who are able to explain things in a beautiful and inspiring manner when you're having a bad day is necessary and wonderful.

Oh, didn't know it was old. I had never seen this one before. I don't even know who is speaking in it.

His channel name is philhellenes. Although, I don't think his actual name is "phil hellenes"... philhellenes is a word that refers to a type of philosophy or philosophers of a genre, or I suppose more accurately a cultural greek thing... reference. Although if his actual name is "phil hellenes" that's pretty rad.

These are some more of his, of which are some I greatly enjoy.

That was beautiful. I actually had tears in my eyes.

The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

If you liked that, and if you haven't seen this one yet already, you must watch this one with Neil deGrasse Tyson. It's one of my favorites.

It's much shorter though...

I loved that! Brilliant and really thought provoking. Instead of sharing my views with religious friends, etc who don't understand why I've abandoned religion, I should just send them this clip. Awesome. Smile

Science saved my soul, because it is not like a god was going to do it any way.

Love that vid. I actually make it a point to watch it about every couple of months or so. One of my favorites! Thumbsup

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.

Its like the Christopher Hitchens one "If You Want To Be Awe Inspired"...

It had a very powerful effect on me the first time I saw it.

Theists have the nerve to say we atheists are spiritually dead... That is spiritual. No gods, no myths, just reality in all its glory.
