Creationism ala Penn and Teller

In response to my previous blog, “A summary of the beliefs of Christianity,” ephiphanist said:

Fundamentalism in your country must be a real problem, people who fervently believe dogma are dangerous. Religion in Australia has been in decline for some time. The Romans are hanging on to their faithful while the protestants fade away. A few of the eastern religions have a toe in the water, but the population is predominately Apathetic. Fundamentalists are rightly considered as the lunatic fringe, though they do have a very minor political party, Family First associated with the AOG and others.

ephiphanist, check out this video for a glimpse into what we’re still dealing with in 21st Century America:

    Excellent video, aA! Penn and Teller are the best “evangelists” atheism has right now. They are charismatic and enjoyable. Where are all the enjoyable pop culture atheists out there!! :-)

    Julia Sweeney is fairly enjoyable to listen to (although my taste does match Penn and Teller a bit more :) )

    Radec,

    I love Julia’s blog and I’ve been meaning to get her DVD but haven’t yet.

    mystery;
    I picked up “letting go of God” off of Itunes some time back, well worth the 12 bucks IMHO.

Attention Christian Readers

Just in case you were wondering who we are and why we de-converted.

de-conversion wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God reviewing your life, you will be judged on your actions and not just on your ability to blindly believe in creeds- when there is a significant lack of evidence on how to define God or if he/she even exists.
