Atheism is Dead 2: You became an atheist so you could watch porn

I struggled through the first half of the "Atheism is Dead" video. It's very jumpy and hard to watch if your attention span is more than 10 seconds. There is an offscreen voice talking very fast to a selection of "atheist" straw men, who become moronically tongue-tied and incoherent in the light of Christian commonsense. Any atheist on this forum could have knocked down the so-called logic.

This trash is interspersed with out-of-context clips of Richard Dawkins, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Lawrence Krauss, and even David Attenborough.

I was interested to hear the narrator list cows and chickens among the animals created complete and perfect by god. I think both are the results of selective breeding by humans over millennia. A lot of time is spent talking about chickens and eggs and whether the first egg from the first chicken was fertilized.

Some of the more interesting arguments:
You became an atheist because you like to watch porn and have extra-marital sex. Believing in god would hinder that.
Ink, paper and words do not assemble themselves spontaneously into books. Your DNA is more complex than a book. Therefore god made it.
Every animal is complete. There are no people with half-evolved legs or eyes, so evolution is wrong.
Nothing can come from nothing. Therefore, someone (god) must have created the universe.

I'll report again when I feel strong enough to sit through the second half without smashing my TV.

"Interesting, I didn't know I became an atheist to watch porn..."

I don't like porn much. There are too many people yelling "Oh god" as they achieve divine inspiration.

I've actually heard some

I've actually heard some Christian "comedian" trying to use that as argument against atheism. I'm paraphrasing:
"Who would want to make love with an atheist? Who are they going to call out to, Darwin?"

Can't remember who it was though...

Thanks, Algebe, for suffering

Thanks, Algebe, for suffering through that rot and warning us! No need to suffer unduly. We get the message. The idiot producer is one of those bottom feeders sucking the scum off of rocks. In his delusional flight of fancy, he is totally oblivious to the fact that his garbage is so foul and dishonest that it can only stink in the nostrils of anyone with a working brain. (Too bad there are so many idiots out there!) I wouldn't even waste time with a detailed rebuttal. Just a few succinct, potent, general comments (when needed) would be more than the rot deserves.

What I've learned here and

What I've learned here and from this video is that if you want to learn about the bible and religion, ask an atheist. If you want to learn about sin and evil and dishonesty, ask a christian.

yes alot of people choose

yes alot of people choose atheism because they find it difficult to keep the moral code but once you turn your whole life to jesus and study his word you become altruistic and you no longer want those old bad habits.you no longer want to walk in the darkness but you get a glimpse of what holiness is like and you wont turn back.

"yes alot of people choose atheism because they find it difficult to keep the moral code"

That's just plain insulting and ridiculous. Where's your evidence for "a lot of people"? I've known a lot of atheists who've lived highly moral lives without your imaginary friend. I've known some christians who've been utterly dishonest and wicked. In fact, I think christianity wrote the book on evil. There should an 11th Commandment: Thou shalt conceal thy sins and not get caught.

"walk in the darkness"
Nope. I took off my blindfold and turned on the lights. I can see just fine.

"the bible states that the things of god are foolish to men who don`t believe.

If that's right, you've found one of the few true lines in that whole sorry book. I don't believe, and the things of god look very, very foolish to me.

"i was sent to you to try to wake the sleeper from there slumber."

Already awake, eyes wide open, seeing right through you.

I think a line from

I think a line from Disturbed's song "Bound" is appropriate here:

"Think your a little bit closer to changing me?

Your never winning me over!

Your wasting time!"

I watched most of the second

I watched most of the second half of the "Atheism is Dead" video. I learned that the Sun was placed at exactly the right distance from the Earth to give us the light and warmth we need. I also saw lots of pictures of delicious fruit and vegetables, cows and sheep, nuts, etc. The narrator said they were all created through intelligent design for our benefit. I guess that's right, because everything we eat is the result of selective breeding of wild species by people.

I remember this Ray Comfort (Banana Man) from Christchurch, New Zealand, in the 1970s. People used to preach and harangue to the lunchtime crowds in the big square in front of the cathedral. There was the Violin Lady, an aging Christian fanatic who would play her violin very badly to silence critics, the Seagull Man, who talked to seagulls through an aluminum foil hat wired to a transistor radio, and the Wizard of Christchurch, the self-proclaimed false prophet of the Church of England, who was the arch-enemy of Banana Man. The other three were popular attractions for years, but poor Ray had to go all the way to California to find people who would take him seriously.

God steals credit for all of

God steals credit for all of mans work; The fruits, Vegetables we eat, the animals we have reared and the books we have written. Gods a plagiarist.

Comfort also claims that

Comfort also claims that airplanes were deveoped in imitation of birds, which god created. Remember that next time you see a Boeing jet flapping its wings as it gracefully rises into the air.
