Atheists lie and say they are not an idelogical movement, that it’s rare for people to leave Atheism, that Atheists have higher IQs, are better at science, are less likely to go to jail, are more mentally healthy, and are just the default rational human beings. These are all lies.
A Deflating & Escaping Atheism hangout responds to Professor Stick, with a great video summarizing modern atheistic and scientism/materialist arguments.
The video begins with the usual intros and noting that Escaping Atheism is back after a 2 week hiatus. Max Kolbe discusses his serious technical issues, which required four trips to the repair shop.
Rob mentions that Mr. Spark, a regular commenter and fan, requested that Deflating Atheism and Max Kolbe take on a response video by Professor Stick. Professor Stick responded to a short video of Professor Alister McGrath, an atheist molecular bio-physicist who eventually became a Christian. Before watching clips of Professor Stick’s response video, Max Kolbe discusses Professor McGrath’s background in more detail. Rob and Max discuss the potential difficulties of the format and they begin the video.
Max Kolbe responds to a Captain Capitalism video discussing Christianity and “good” Christians versus “bad” Christians. Max observes that like many militant atheists, Captain Capitalism comes from an authoritarian to possibly dysfunctional religious household and has gone no farther in resolving or separating religion from his experiences. Refutes specific arguments within the video.
All religious people should read and listen to TJ Kirk talk about religion. Christians especially should take note. This man wants to convert your children. He’ll call it “deconverting” because that’s the terminology his cult uses. Anyway, please do watch, and start paying attention to these people. They want to control your life and your kids’s life, and they lie when they say otherwise.
Escaping Atheism and Deflating Atheism throw on their waders and dive into the intellectual sewer of Kyle Kulinski’s “POLL: 63% Of Americans ‘Absolutely Certain’ God Exists”— as video that represents the absolute nadir of atheist stupidity, and the point at which New Atheism’s utter lack of promise becomes supremely manifest.
This is a response to Noel Plum’s YouTube video “Dean Esmay’s “Escaping Atheism” Project”.
Hi. I’m Eve Keneinan. I’m a philosopher by profession and an Orthodox Christian by way of adult conversion. I’m also part of the Escaping Atheism project. I know Dean Esmay, via the internet, but Escaping Atheism is more a volunteer confederation than a monarchy (we gave Dean the title “Patriarch”—I’m sure you can see why that’s funny), so this is just my thoughts on what you have to say. Dean was one of the folks who proofread it, and had a couple corrections to the parts where I mention him, but this isn’t in any way from him. It’s basically all me. Sorry I couldn’t answer you on YouTube, but I don’t really make YouTube videos (unless occasional screen captures count), so my blog will have to do. I’m afraid I didn’t work out whether this was going to be a commentary on what you had to say or a reply where I spoke directly to you, so it ended up a bit of both. I’m going to offer some critiques of some of your points, agree with you sometimes, and sometimes when you particularly address Dean, just not say anything at all.
