Is it supposed to? Atheists can't prove or disprove a deity but what they can do is use logic and rational thinking and come to the conclusion that most likely, based on the information that is out there, that all the deities that are known are most likely fictional.

A god is like a rock: it does absolutely nothing until someone or something forces it to do something. The only capability the rock has is doing nothing until another force compels it physically to move.

I don't think the video was meant to prove the non-existence of God, it was just meant to show why it doesn't make sense to believe in God.

Maybe you could expand on your trailing thought?

While it doesn't disprove the existence of god it gives people a way (or attempts to) think outside of the box that the bible has put people in. If you use critical thinking skills attained in college then use them to think about the bible. That's what he was getting at. How hard is that to do, and where did he state that he was going to disprove god? I sense you missed the point of the video.

I edit a lot of my posts. The reason being it to add content or to correct grammar/wording. All edits to remove wording get a strike through through the wording.

Nor does it disprove the existence of any supernatural entity -- from unicorns through to leprechauns, or Aphrodite through Zeus.  Yet, unless you accept each of these as credible, the 10 questions do make it so they are all on the same basic level of credibility.

The videos did make you think about the existence of God though, didn't they?
