Hey [#457]
« on: September 24, 2008, 11:09:57 PM »
Hey,

I saw your video about Jesus being imaginary. 5 stars man. I just posted my first video last night that tries to disprove religion in general. If you have a few minutes I wouldn't mind getting your opinion on it.

I didn't make the videos, I'm just a member of the forums here.  That said...

I'm an agnostic atheist too.  I liked your video, and think it's fine.  I "deconverted" around age 8~12, and think your comments about that period of your life were spot on; you did a good job of speaking for yourself but being sympathetic to everyone.  For example; thinking when you are young that being a superhero is a real job!

Occasionally on the forums here, there are some very insightful observations,  Here's one that is begging to be turned into a video, and if not it might give you some unconventional ideas about the psychology of religious people and why they might act as they do;

This makes it clear; religious sects are just a more organized version of religious cults.
Smart people believe weird things because they are skilled at defending beliefs they arrived at for non-smart reasons. --Michael Shermer

The history of religion is a long attempt to reconcile old custom with new reason, to find a sound theory for an absurd practice.  --Sir James George Frazer
