Re: ****Official RGT video thread****

This isn't a meaningful clip, so not sure if this is appropriate here or even if it's been posted before. But I'm always excited to learn of yet another famous person who is anti-religious. I had no idea this guy was, but I'm certainly not surprised. I'm more surprised he's outspoken about it.

Wow, thanks for this, this was HILARIOUS and had a very powerful (albeit somewhat preachy) ending. I definitely recommend it to everyone.

I watched the series Growing Up in the Universe by Dawkins (first episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHoxZF3ZgTo), it was pretty interesting. It's not really on religion, but a lot of the subject matter it tackles (evolution, origin of universe, etc.) is something that tends to be an issue between theologians.

I just discovered I was an atheist a few weeks ago. I've actually been one since I was a kid, I just happened to have the definitions of atheism and agnosticism mixed up. I'm pretty sure it's a common mistake to think that atheism is only the active belief there is no god, and agnosticism is an ambivalent stance.

It's really cool to know that there are so many people in the world who think religion is as dumb as I do (not that all atheists think this). I've been doing a lot of research on it, and it's really fascinating stuff. Especially About.com's blog on it: http://atheism.about.com/. Lots of thought-provoking articles there.

No kidding, Religulous is the main reason I'm an atheist today. This is because I didn't think about religion at all until I watched the movie with my parents ~4 months ago. Then I got really interested right away and began coming to this forum. Once I ran a Jeopardy category on the Bible, I was pretty happy. Took me 18 yrs to get here, but oh well, my childhood and teenage years couldn't have been better.

Re: ****Official RGT video thread****

Having recently seen it, I'd recommend anyone and everyone to watch Marjoe. It looks like the whole thing can be seen on youtube, but it's out on DVD, Netflix, Rapidshare, etc.

I think it's particularly interesting because at that time the whole big-tent evangelism thing was something of a fringe phenomenon. Amazing that an Oscar-winning documentary which essentially claims the entire thing is a hustle didn't prevent it becoming a billion-dollar industry.

Came across this. Norton didn't find a virus and it seems to work. It's free.

Useful if you like listening to listening to all these debates on your ipod or something.

Apparently Satan has been very busy in the music and entertainment industry. If it was popular, it was probably inspired by Satan. Details here:

You should really ditch Norton AV, replace it will Avira which is free, lightweight, and has one of the best detection ratings.

First time I've seen this, so sorry if it's a repost. It's comedy, but I thought it nailed how ridiculous religious people often look.
