Well, post them all here? I personally watch a lot of them on youtube, and figured a lot of you would too.
Here's mine:) Easily my favorite Christopher Hitchens speech.

RE: Your Favorite Atheist Speeches?
My three favorite speeches aren't directly about atheism, but they mean a lot more to me now than ever before.

Neil deGrasse Tyson with a very cool thought indeed:




Richard Feynman on teaching critical thinking to children:




And I'm sure many people know Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot:



Of all the ideas put forth by science, it is the principle of Superposition that can undo any power of the gods. For the accumulation of smaller actions has the ability to create, destroy, and move the world.

"I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." -W. E. Henley

RE: Your Favorite Atheist Speeches?
Ooh. It is so hard to pick just one.
SO many have had influence on me.

What I will toss into the conversation is how we collectively think as humans.
Meaning, once we get past all of the KC's in the world who are simply holding things back, we can employ different ways of thinking in our society as a whole for the better.
It is the ideas of Jacque Fresco that really made me think of the methods we use in our societies.
Maybe this video will explain why I harp on method so much to KC and others clinging to blind faith.




It's all in your head, because there is no other place it could be.

RE: Your Favorite Atheist Speeches?
My personal favorite is TheoreticalBullshit answering "What if you're wrong?"





My second favorite is actually not by an atheist (he refers to himself as an "apatheist", as in "I don't care if God exists") but still is an atheist argument that wrecks William Lane Craig's main argument for God, the Kalam Cosmological Argument.





They're both short videos and I'd recommend them to any atheist (and the second one can even be appreciated by theists).

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

Great thread. Good idea.
I'd not seen this one before and often wondered where the "I am absolutely convinced... " line came from.

Thanks so much
