Two Things That Annoy Seth About Atheist Culture
Hi guys, I'm new and I don't really understand the forum method. Sorry if this is in the wrong "Thread"(?)

I've been listening for a long time to the podcast and I've come up with this list of the two elements of the Atheist Community that Annoys Seth. They're just guesses, and they aren't confirmed.

These are GROSS estimations, and just my "gut" feeling based on MY INTERPRETATION of his tone, and words.

1. Liberalism. Most Atheists are Liberal.
>> Ok, I'm mostly a liberal but I can tell that this really annoys Seth. I think that although his political views have definitely changed since his Christian years, I don't think they've flipped. I think he's an issues guy (decides on each issue individually).
>>>Reason: I hear Seth check himself just short of ever saying the word Liberal, but sometimes I think it's implied. For instance when he criticizes P.C. language (for the most part enforced by Liberals) he stops just short of saying the word. Also in that part of the country it is very favorable to be critical of both Liberals and P.C. language.)

2. Young People
>>Ok this is NOT saying that Seth doesn't like young people. I think that sometimes when he wants to criticize the youth (like in the Black Friday episode) he checks himself because he realizes most of his listeners are young.


These are GROSS estimations, and just my "gut" feeling based on MY INTERPRETATION of his tone, and words. He's never confirmed this, and these are just guesses.


Please leave your feedback for these GUESSES.

I haven't listened to the podcast for at least a year, or read up on the guy, so I have no idea what's in his head.

On the liberal bit. Can people confirm that he has a negative knee jerk reaction towards "liberals" and liberalism?

If so, is it out of ignorance? He's progressive but thinks the word has negative connotations? Like, say, Neil deGrasse is an atheist, but he's against the word because he thinks it has negative connotations.

Or is he backward in thinking? "The wars are protecting us, soldiers are protecting our freedoms, guns for everyone, why do people have to protest the banking system, Israel is undersiege, what's the deal with feminists, something has to be done about black people, if they get to use the N word so should I, keep an eye on muslims, Natives like the term redskins and caricature, socialism means Stalin, etc, etc."

I didn't come here because of Seth or the podcasts, but I think that with several general topics he probably walks on stepping stones, not just the topics of younger listeners and liberals.

But that's just IMO. Lots of people listen to his podcasts. He wants to be honest, but he also wants to appeal to his listeners.

I think Seth has a favorable view of youth. I mean, he does acknowledge that youth is youth which is accurate.

As for Liberalism...eh he at least has said he is a fiscal conservative (I believe), but honestly I couldn't care less what his political sway is...or really what anybody's is. As long as they actually know who/what they are really supporting.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Liberals are enforcing PC language?

And what the fuck is a libertarian? I keep hearing that word. Is it a liberal with some kind of weird twist or something completely different ?

All I know about Murican politics is that Republicans are dicks and that Democrats are also dicks but not as much.

I wouldn't venture to guess as to what his political beliefs are, but I certainly don't think he is overly critical of young people. Just my 2 cents.
