Video response to Christian Talour & his video "Atheism Linked to Autism," which you watch here:
This video is for educational/commentary purposes and the use of the clips/images within it fall under the FAIR USE clause under section 107 of copyright law. This video DOES NOT violate copyright, as it provides criticism and commentary for educational purposes and is transformative in nature as well as noncommercial. Anyone is free to download and mirror this video for educational purposes only.
This video pertains to psychology and not evolution because this theist makes the misleading claim that atheism is linked to autism...by cherry-picking existing data for his own religious purposes. Seriously, has it really come down to this? Theists can't argue cohesively on the internet so they resort to petty tactics like this? I'm not a psychologist in any way (and neither is Christian the Christian), but it's funny how this guy acts like an armchair psychologist in a smug matter by slandering an entire group of people just because he has a disagreement with them on religion. In this video, I try to address his claims within the video as well as point out where he's cherry-picking.
