  1. It is so funny how religion has bullied and persecuted people since it’s
    beginning. Not too long ago I would be risking my life standing up against
    religion, and in some parts of the world that still holds true.

    But now religion is trying to play this poor little persecuted entity.

  2. If you’re concerned about opinions of stupid, biased or bigoted people,
    that’s your problem.

  3. There is no shame in hating religion and no reason, I can see *not* to hate
    religion(s). That doesn’t mean religious people should be, or are, hated.
    No one is saying that people shouldn’t be allowed to practice their
    religion either.

    Believers, like all humans, can be good or bad without religion. Still, as
    institutions, religions are generally pretty awful.

  4. The caller does have a point.

    The hosts of the show, pretty much all of them, would LOVE for a theist to
    become an atheist, or at the very least hope that a person who is looking
    for an answer receives an answer. HOWEVER they could care less if a person
    gets a misconception about atheism after watching the show? There is
    something hugely wrong here.

    At the very least, as a disclaimer, they could start the show with a 10
    second image of the definition of atheism, as a sort of “this is what
    atheism is, nothing more nothing less”

    Many problems that arised from the misconception about the definition of
    atheism could be cleared away with just 10 seconds instead of talking to a
    person for 10 minutes and then realizing “hey, you just don’t know what
    atheism, the topic of this very show, means”

  5. This is definitely a systemic problem with the misconception of atheism.
    Yes it comes from the pulpit. True story I told someone that I am an
    atheist and he basically said I worship Satan. I told him I dont worship
    Satan because I dont believe in Satan! 

  6. As an anti-theist (&, somehow, an atheist) myself, thank you for the show!
    BTW, you should really consider changing , and re-changing , and
    re-changing… the name of your show to exaclty what each caller likes.
    Shame on you for not coming up with that perfect idea yourself!

  7. I agree with Miles that theists watching this show might start believing
    that atheist = anti-theist. But i agree with Matt more that this is a
    problem of the theists caused by their own ignorance. And i also agree that
    if Miles has a problem with people making this association, he should get
    out and make everyone understand what an atheist is. Maybe then we’ll stop
    hearing crap like: “You’re atheists, you say there’s no god.”.

  8. The caller wants to be an appeaser toward religion. He actually thinks
    himself superior to theists and those poor folks need their religion and we
    mustn’t challenge them or offend their tender sensibilities because they
    might crumble without their delusions. He wants them to praise him for
    being so “understanding” and “respectful” regardless of the continued harm
    they reek on society and human progress. He’s far more worried about what
    they think of him than that they don’t actually think critically at all
    when it comes to their religion. I’m with Matt and Don on this. We
    shouldn’t ever be timid about religion. It isn’t special and it is not off
    base to challenge it …. ever.

  9. Oh f#%* off George. You’re arguing with theist logic. You’re fake voice
    didn’t fool any of us. I’m quite sure Matt knew this too. He was
    particularly harsh on you cos he knew you were pastor dimwit George. Just
    saying

  10. Search youtube for ‘You Atheists Are Ganging Up On People #866’, ‘What the
    hell are you talking about #801’ and ‘IGNORANT RACIST CATHOLIC #806’, ‘Them
    Atheists Got Faith Too! #814’.

    *These all are the same idiot* under different guises.

  11. “if your an atheist and you don’t hate religion, I don’t think your a bad
    atheist, I just think your a bad human being” FUCK YOU MATT, so If I don’t
    hate religion and I show tolerance towards religious beliefs and practices
    that does not actively harm others I’m a bad human being? Its stands like
    that, that makes it impossible for Identify myself as an atheist any more,
    because I don’t want to get lumped into the same group as ass hats like you
    that says If I don’t agree with your intolerance towards religion, I’m a
    bad human being. How is this any different then the religious extremists
    that say if you don’t agree with me and my god that you are a bad human
    being. Its thinking like this that will lead to atheist extremists that
    will mirror religious extremists trying to impose there opinion on
    everyone, because its that opinion that makes us “good human beings” or
    not. I understand that pure atheism, the simple lack of a belief in god can
    not be a religion, but when you start adding stands like this one, the new
    anti theist “atheist” movement is becoming more and more like a religion
    and is in danger of causing the same types of harm that they are trying to
    stop in religion.

  12. Good caller. He had some sound critique. I don’t think Matt was in a good
    mood this day. lol

    The show is called the Atheist Experience, but it is leaned towards an
    anti-theistic view. So someone who watches the show would conclude that
    anti-theism is a characteristic of atheism.

    It’s like if there was a show called the Black Experience, but it was run
    by the Nation of Islam. Many may conclude that antisemitism was a
    characteristic of blackness.

    Caller suggests, without actually saying it, that they should change their
    name to the Anti-Theist Experience, because it is a specific description to
    the overall tone of the show.

  13. Hey guy imagine you just got rid of all religions,

    There would still be no peace.
    And war would still exist.
    Because of people like you..

    Who will only except people around you because they conform to your idea.
    

  14. +Tera Nelson you could be tolerating the intolerable, in which case you
    *may* qualify as a bad person.

    Remember what Edmund Burke said: “All it takes for evil to triumph is for
    good men to do nothing.”

    You can sit on the fence and let chaos ensue, I don’t think you are immoral
    in the same sense, perhaps you did a bad thing due to misguidance, but if
    you willingly do nothing after knowing the fact, that is wrong.

  15. I’m having trouble trying to figure out what his fake accent is supposed to
    be. It seems a mix of English, South African, Indian, Australian, American
    ‘Southern’ accent, and some others that I can’t even identify. George, if
    you want to call with a fake accent, here’s a tip. Pick a person that has
    that accent, and pretend everything you are saying is being said by that
    person (in your head) and project that. 

  16. Why is it most of the Atheist Experience videos I see on YouTube arent
    actually on their channel.. I realize they allow people to use their video
    content for their videos but unless you are associated with the channel
    itself I dont think they intended for people to just record and replay as
    their uploaded content.

  17. For a second I believed the accent, then he couldn’t stick with it after
    the first couple of sentences.

  18. This caller has to decide where he lives in the world. Pick an accent (or
    personality) and stick with it!

  19. I am both a mammal and a Homo Sapien. Just because I am Home Sapien doesn’t
    mean I can’t declare that I am a mammal.

    Anti-theists would be almost without fail Atheists, though not all Atheists
    are anti-Theist.

  20. Today I’m an agnostic atheist, tomorrow….who knows.

    Pastor George is an atheist. Proof that atheism closes its doors to no one.

    Actually it’s just Pastor George trying to get aytheusts to put themselves
    into a nice little box so that he can vent his spleen at the right sort of
    atheist.

    Atheist: I don’t believe in Gods. After that, we can argue about all sorts
    of other things.

  21. Isn’t anti-theism the thought that if god did exist then it would be a bad
    thing. like a dictatorship. 

  22. Pastor George’s fake accent is worse than Dick van Dyke’s in “Mary Poppins”
    and James Doohan’s on “Star Trek”.
