Getting rid of the goatee didn't help.  In another example of the ignorance of David Silverman, President of American Atheists, he goes on yet another nationally televised show and pulls the i'm better than you because I'm an atheist and you're a plain idiot card.  I'm really tired of this guy representing us. This could of been a great opportunity to say plainly, we prepare like this, and we help others like this, instead he once again mocks his hosts.

I think I could do a better job than David. 

 

That being said, the brit and the blonde immediately went into shouting mode at the beginning, so Dave didn't really have a chance to gain control of the conversation.

That's not true Billy. He started of well with that quote "hands that help are better than hands that pray", but when the host said, "do you not have any other self outside your physical self" it was a bait and Silverman fell for it when he said "no and neither do you". It went downhill from there. You cannot tell someone how to think. You cannot make assumptions on how someone feels. It's the basics of communication.

If you are as pissed off as I am, here is link to the Board of Directors of American Atheists. Feel free to send them your comments. http://atheists.org/about/Board_of_Directors

Great... give Fox viewers a REAL reason to hate atheists. What a dumb-ass.

Comment by Morgan Matthew on August 29, 2011 at 11:41am

Just amazing... If I was ever asked to go on FOX, I would politely decline.

Comment by Robert Karp on August 29, 2011 at 11:46am

Morgan if you went on Fox you would do TEN TIMES better than Silverman.

Comment by Rick on August 29, 2011 at 11:59am

Morgan, you’d do 100 TIMES better. This was nothing short of a cluster-fuck.

 

Robert, I wrote the ENTIRE board of directors. Thanks for the link. That was a major embarrassment.
