The Atheist Experience

A plug for - The Atheist Experience
A great bunch of active atheists based in Austin Texas spreading "the good rational word".

I like the time they shut down those fanatical 9/11 Truther callers. Annoyed the **** out of me.

After the first couple dozen you get the picture. Personally, I prefer Matt Dillahunty's channel for his Atheist Debate series as he goes much further in depth with scripted videos on the arguments.

Yes, a great bunch of active atheists indeed. Matt, as a trainee preacher turned atheist, is an inspiration to us all. He and the others, who sit through the endless and repetitive submissions of the faithful, show a tolerance many, including myself, do not have. Would be great if we could get some figures on how successful they are in deprograming the deluded.

I have been listening to their archived episodes for a year "religiously". (Recently lightened up though). They were very influential in my development as a more knowledgeable atheist. (Actually after watching them for a while only I was able to call myself an atheist). They were a good window to the intellectual superiority of a skeptic over a believer, for me.
To me also there is non like Tracy Harris. She also teaches how to communicate to people, rather than winning arguments alone.

I'am a fan of Tracy also. Has a delicate way of making an argument without coming down too heavy on the woo merchant.
