Well done!

I also love that he pulls a number out of the air as to how many people in the world are theists, then makes the ad populum claim, then claims that those people have a 'good reason' which he never names for their belief. I could say the same, as in the spirit of the video, about fairies. I could just make the claim that most people in the world believe in fairies, and with good reason, then never say even one thing that might qualify as a good reason.

Intellectually dishonest? It strikes you? Explain! Oh, you don't. Eff you!

Our unbelief in belief is unbelievable!
