This well done video is a criticism of a christian video maker who claims "atheism is dying in america." [Actually from what I have heard, the opposite trend is happening] Wikipedia:The 2001 ARIS report found that while 29.5 million U.S. Americans (14.1%) describe themselves as "without religion", only 902,000 (0.4%) positively claim to be atheist, with another 991,000 (0.5%) professing agnosticism.....The most recent ARIS report, released March 9, 2009, found in 2008, 34.2 million Americans (15.0%) claim no religion. Of which, 1.6% explicitly describe themselves as atheist or agnostic, double the previous 2001 ARIS survey figure. " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_atheism
So what is the source of this christian's dubious claims? Conservapedia! http://www.conservapedia.com/Main_Page
It is clearly [even from the home page] NOT an objective encyclopedic website. Well... I think this Youtube atheist does a fantastic criticism of this idiocy.

That is quite funny... It's like they thought "bah, any old statistics will do as references, it's not like anyone will actually check" :P

You're right, Michel! Generally "facts" and "evidence" have no real meaning to an evangelical.

Go to ex-Christians.net and Richard Dawkins site and see how many religious people are becoming atheists/agnostics.

I think ShockOfGod does a fine job of making himself look stupid, but great vid.

ShockofGod likes to post "I'll save your soul" type messages on my youtube channel comments section.

ShockOfGod's such an idiot... He said that "The Atheist Experience" can't be trusted because the Atheist Community of Austin has no SCIENTISTS in it. Dammit! That pissed me off.
