Part 2

Anybody else thinking that maybe Dave SIlverman isn't our best foot to put forward? His talking points are painful, and his delivery makes him seem like a prick. What was the point of this radio interview other than getting these christians all worked up?

I'm not all that impressed by him. He is entitled to his views, certainly -- perhaps he has a better understanding of his target demographic than I do --, but I think he's setting himself up as cannon fodder for religion advocates that are more clever, more articulate, and more experienced with these debates.

the doctors said it was a miracle..it's sad that their religion has them so deluded that their education and years of experience doesn't amount to anything.

you wonder why we get upset? because we are the ones are constantly oppressed..they are not.
Comment by Jon Heim on December 5, 2010 at 6:53pm
if the only atheists he knows are upset because someone has hurt them...he cant possibly know too many atheists. The reason an atheist would be hurt in the first place is because we are sick of the oppression. we are sick of being judged for being ourselves.

um...no, they really are the ones who dont know a lot about Christmas. And you know what, im sick and tired of people like the first caller because we do have a reason to be agree. you cant talk to a brick wall and when the conversation is over, they had the nerve to trash talk the guy in the first place. A christian will never talk to an atheist with their guard down, should why should an atheist be any different.

oh and by the way...

THERE ARE FUCKING ATHEISTS IN FOXHOLES!!!

Good lord. A lot of angry Christians accusing an Atheist about being angry. Projection much?

Yeah, I agree with Kris. Atheist Mr. Silverman didn't handle that show well, and just became the fodder.
Comment by Loop Johnny on December 6, 2010 at 12:11pm
Agreed. He blew it. In this vid David made a fool of himself.
Comment by Pope Beanie on December 6, 2010 at 6:14pm
And the hosts are ABSOLUTELY THE MOST CONDESCENDING BASTARDS EVER.

Well yeah, of course. I'll complement Silverman for having the guts to subject himself to that. But that interview was only a good thing for THEM.

Otoh, perhaps it could be used as pro-atheist fodder someday, for a wider audience.
