What do you think of atheist figures such as Jerry Dewitt?
There seems to be a cult of personality surrounding people like Jerry Dewitt and Ernest Perce V. Their religious fervor has carried over and I'm not really sure what to think of the atheist "sermons" that they deliver at various conventions. While they do offer a unique perspective, I have no clue if they're sincere or not.

What do you think about people like this? [/u]

Some atheist's figures are more appealing.

I hope they are sincere. If there is a reverse conversion down the line (and a highly profitable book deal)... ... Angry

Never heard of either. "Religious fervor"..? "Sermoms"...? These characterizations coming from someone who claims to be an atheist...? Dodgy

It's Special Pleadings all the way down!

Jerry Dewitt, IIRC, was a former preacher turned atheist, and gives a church style sermon/lecture about atheism with a fire and brimstone flare. He strikes me as insincere and somewhat of a used car salesman.

I dont know the other guy, so I cant comment on him.

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

I think he preached for so long that it's the only way he knows how to speak publicly.

As for his sincerity, I haven't studied him enough to make a call either.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Oh, so all he knows is how to preach, and he just kept on preachin'?

What, 'cause he couldn't do anything else in life...?

Seems more like a schtick he worked out to get on the circuit. Whatever it is, it makes me feel uncomfortable, and I was never indoctrinated to batshit crazy religions. He just doesnt come across in a good way to me... but thats just my opinion.

I'm just speculating on the guys motives by what I percieve from his videos, I dont know him personally.

Well, I like that he started off with the shaking hands with your neighbor" bit, but it got tedious.

I agree with Anj, looks like he trained as a preacher and just can't let go of the schtick/persona/attention/whatever.
