Damn, that lady's voice was annoying... Per-usual, Silverman could have handled that much better. What he should have focused on, if he wanted to push the preparedness angle, was people that pray and do nothing else. That would highlight faith as a shortcoming, but people that prepare and pray aren't really that much different than those who just prepare.
He looks better since he shaved his Satan-esque facial hair.
Seriously, how can you not mock them?
If an adult says they seriously believe in Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy and base their political decisions, legislation, education of children, etc. on such nonsense, how can you not call them out on their delusional thinking? There is the same amount of evidence for god, prayer, etc., as there is for Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.
I agree, I think he could have handled it differently and possibly "better," but the delusional thinking needs to be called out for what it is- how that is done is a matter of preference, but I do not fault him much for calling delusional what really is delusional.
Does this guy care about the atheist community at all or is he just trying to build a name for himself? This is so disappointing because he comes off as arrogant, intolerant, and irrational. You have to know your audience. That style is good for getting laughs in casual conversations among atheists. He doesn't have the cultural currency with theists to make many of bold declarations we take for granted without laying the groundwork of where he is coming from first. Take Speech 101. There's got to be a better communicator at American Atheists.
I mean , look at what the guy had to go up against ... that annoying woman , I can't even begin to explain the agony I felt when she kept whining. The host was just off the wall too .. if they are going to invite a guest on , shouldn't they show more respect for THEIR opinions even if they think they are wrong? Dave was performing better here than usual. He had to defend himself quite a bit.
So I wrote to the entire Board of American Atheists and below is the response:
Dear Mr. Karp:
@Robert: That’s a rather disappointing response. Basically what I hear him saying is that the opposition is completely irrational so the only way to reach them is to fight fire with fire. When they act like fools, instead of taking the high ground, we have to one-up them. They’re going to bully the opposition into submission. Sounds like they want to fight a war of attrition. Oh, bother….
At least you got a real response. All I got was “Thanks for your input.”
Fox news is putrid.
I thought he did a GREAT job! I find it hilarious when people say he gave them MORE reason to hates atheists. These MORONS don't NEED any other reason than the word "ATHEIST"! There was ABSOLUTELY no way to have a reasoned discussion with those idiots, so why try? Does anyone really think, had he been polite and deferential, all of sudden the inbreeds that watch fox news would have gone, "Hey, those atheists are really just good people with a slightly different belief system. Let's treat them with respect!" NEVER going to happen. Someday the INCREDIBLE weight of facts will crash down on their heads and they will have to realize that THIS god is no different than Zeus, Thor, Lord Ganesha or the Evil Lord Xenu. Until that time laughing at them is WAY more satisfying than trying to reason with them!
