Actually, both "declines," as there is likely no real decline in either, are probably the result of the same reason but for differing types. Stigma.

Atheists would fear taking the label simply because of popularity, a flaw in our social traits. An unpopular person is thought to be an outcast, or irrelevant, by people so much that anything which threatens popularity will cause any unevolved humans to avoid it, even if it is accurate.

For Baptists, well, Westboro pretty much created the entire stigma of holding that label. The name is now being associated with hatemongering and criminal behavior, as well as some really disgraceful activities. Thus, they would likely claim something else, or "non-demoninational, " maybe even avoid the label of "christian" altogether.

It's okay, offers more opinion than actual science though. I prefer the university lectures from Berkeley and others.
TED presentations don't have the time to go into the details. They are to promote interest into researching further into the topic.

Not quite a commercial or info-mercial where they expect you to "Call now! Have your credit card number standing by!" but to put a spotlight on things the normal media channels won't cover. Not a lot of bleeding or people in skimpy swimsuits there.

Shock of god is a retard! He's the christhole who steals footage of the motorcycle rider who films himself riding around, knight rider I believe he calls himself. Next he plays the stolen video and preaches his apologetic nonsense over top of it!

Shock has made a shockingly bad jackass out of himself on the atheist experience several times.

And I'd say the Baptists weren't voting -for- Mitt Romney but against Obama or any candidate with a "D" next to their name.

For many Baptists, Mormonism is a heretical cult. Not sure how they rank versus Papist antichrist Catholics...

Westboro is a prime example of the worst of the secular and religious realm. They are a bunch of lawyers trying to exploit the legal system in the name of religion.(This is why we can't have nice things.)

But they are a good example for one thing - testing the boundaries of Freedom of Speech.

They can excrete what they want (with some restrictions) from their upper orifice that smells a lot like what the lower orifice also excretes.

But I can disregard what they say. Or I can exercise my Freedom of Speech by countering that I think they suck and blow at the same time.

That is what I like about TED it gives a short simple overview of the subject and then I decide from there if I wan more information.

There's another aspect of the TED presenters I've noticed: they employ some sort of voodoo magic.

I bet they could get me to watch for 15 minutes on the similarities and contrasts between watching paint dry and grass growing.

And that would still be more entertaining than most of the major network programming.

What a fanciful description. But yeah, reality does tend to be more entertaining than the yarns spun by mainstream networks, which makes me wonder why people refuse to give up the yarns.

I would describe TED as a gateway drug, to the more addictive lectures and scientific discussions, as well as some of the really awesome contributions from scientists who make videos for YouTube during their spare time, as well as the very well studied, less professional, contributors to scientific videos on YouTube.

I sound like an advertisement, but ... we all have some resource which just sparks our interest, and mine is video.

What is so funny about the idiot is that he really wants you to think he is racing this motorcycle around whipping in and out of lanes between cars.... And is also have this long winded Jesus discussion.

Of course if you ever watch a video of a miced up dude on a bike especially during accelerating, the guy has to just about tell to be heard and the wind whips around so much you are lucky to catch one in four words. It's not this smooth fluent conversation.

I guess he does it as a gimmick to keep people watching? But anyone with a semi functioning brain could tell in two minutes the dude on the motorcycle isn't having this conversation that you are hearing.

I suggest for his next video he talk over... Plumbers working, birds chirping, a hog snorting an eating and maybe even dogs in heat footage just to mix it up for his Christian viewers.

I figured it was something like that, but I didn't think he was stealing footage as well though, that's what shocked me. His dishonesty knows no bounds, does it?

Nope. In fact I bet the chump shock of god doesn't even own a motorcycle.

But it shows how desperate they are to get attention even using cheap tactics like this.

What next speak about Jesus over a wet T-shirt contest footage?

I know what you mean. There were 2 TED talks I distinctly remember among others that if you mentioned it, I'd go "oh, yeah..."

First was Bill Gates. I wanted to hate that guy for all the BSOD's I've encountered. But that's not so easy when he's now using his money to try to eradicate polio like small pox...

The second and more memorable is still bizarre and off the wall to me. It was guy talking about the art of letters and signs. From the hand written signs in a window to graffiti.

How interesting and advancing science could that be?

It was quite entertaining and was one of those presentations I'd wish they'd let him go double time.

And every once in a while, I still take a second look at a sign or ad for its artistic value.

Completely off-topic but this just triggered something I saw elsewhere.

Around 1/3 of Americans are organ donors but only a fraction of them take the extra step of fulfilling that commitment by buying a motorcycle.

The poll -- which was based on interviews with more than 50,000 people selected from 57 countries -- asked participants, "irrespective of whether they attended a place of worship, if they considered themselves to be religious, not religious, or an atheist."
