Yeah.... I admit I missed that when I first watched it. But, upon further review... and perusing some of his other work , I found out that my first impression was a bit off! LOL!

there's no such thing as an atheist argument

there's an athiest moment when you reject religion

and then the athiesm is over

now you're something else

a humanist or a naturalist

religion is out of contention and the absence of it is not a defining characteristic of yourself

which is defined as what you positively are

athiest is just a label to identify a position in relationship to religion - it has no meaning anywhere else.

Any argument for a magic sky daddy will always come back as a logical fallacy. because it's a castle made of sand from primitive goad herdering cave dwellers.

So mocking people's beliefs and calling them names is helpful how? Obviously I'm not a very good atheist since I do neither.

It is important to mock beleifs that are ridiculous to take away the special status that people afford them

beleifs are not deserving of respect, only people are

but respect is earned and not bestowed

so, if people don't want to have their beliefs made fun of, then they shouldn't cling so hard to funny beleifs

mocking is the ungentle way to remind people that the belief isn't special or deserving of special consideration

and if they want to be treated with respect, then they have to stop being uptight and moronic children

It's frightening when you can't tell this kind of satire from "true" Christians' typical bs.
