Matt was very triggered in this video. Not the presentation I would prefer, but he made points that I have made using examples I have used and got the kind of response I have witnessed. In spite of Matt's often emotional presentation, this video has a lot to offer. Matt Dillahunty's bio, by...

“… so this is atheism in a nutshell. You say, "there's a god.". I say, "you can prove that?" You say, "no." I say, "I don't believe you then.”
Ricky in his usual soft-delivery of brutal candor offers a clear description of agnostic atheism (i.e. the position of most every atheist) and demonstrates why he is an agnostic atheist. Here is the operative part of the short video: Stephen: Talking about hell before, about this...
Why The US Has No High-Speed Rail

“It's just very difficult to make the economics work here. … There's just too many other tough pressing problems we're facing.”
We have vested interests in the private sector that do not want to see an efficient transportation infrastructure that lessens the demand on individual vehicles. On top of that, the safety regulations, natural challenges (e.g. mountains), labor costs, etc. make such a system difficult to cost...
How Game of Thrones Should Have Ended

“Jump to my alternate ending: 4:43”
This is intriguing. A few minor mistakes, but a better story line. I thought it would be fun to consider one of many other possible endings to this otherwise spectacular series.
Homosexuality Is Not Moral And Here's Why
Via: TᵢG • Critical Thinkers • 35 Comments • 7 Likes • 3 weeks ago
“Homosexuality is not inherently moral but it is not immoral either.”
Alex (the speaker) makes the point that it makes no sense to consider sexual orientation in terms of morality. One's sexual orientation is not moral or immoral ... it just is an un-chosen characteristic of their person. Similarly, it is not moral or immoral to be of a given skin color,...
Flat Earth vs. Round Earth

“You are essentially perpetuating ignorance by denying science.”
They believe this stuff. The leader of the group, Mark Sargent, claims that the Earth is flat and the stars and planets are just lights in the sky. He holds that the flat Earth means that there is a greater force than us. Apparently the views are religious.
Scientific Proof of God?

“Because we have no compelling evidence of the multiverse theory (at least not yet) we are not going to make claims of absolute certainty because...”
Alex is a very accomplished video blogger (especially at his age). I like his style; it is entertaining and cuts to the chase. His knowledge and articulate, biting rebuttals hint as to why he now has over 200,000 subscribers. This analysis (one of many) deals with some of the most common...
Teaching Religious Views as Science

“No apparent, perceived, or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the Scriptural record.”
Answers In Genesis is probably the most influential Young Earth Creationism organization. It is an organization with about $172 million in assets which aggressively promotes religious indoctrination of children into a literal interpretation of the Bible, most notably that the Earth is ~6,000...
What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs?

“It is the Bible's history that explains dinosaurs.”
An intellectual mini lecture by the distinguished Ken Ham. This is a disturbing level of serial nonsense. I make no guarantee that you will retain your current IQ level if you watch this 4 minute video.
