"Indiana Jones....grew up with the first 3 movies and loved them, to the point that I can look past the grail/ark stuff as silly and it doesn't bother me. But....now that I'm a full-on skeptical atheist made the last one difficult. Really,…"
"I don't know if this is on topic, but a really annoying cliche of supernatural etc films is the token skeptic/atheist who generally either becomes a believer or dies horribly. In a universe with magic, actual miracles, supernatural events etc…"
"I think (correct if wrong) Poe's Law is an internet "law" that fundamentalist belief is indistinquishible from a parody of said belief. In other words, fundies sound so crazy that you can't tell if they're serious or…"

"Over on the Skeptoid site, a bunch of people have been running rings around this guy Joe on the religion/creatism/evolution topics. I was occasionally putting in my two cents but when Joe actually came out as an AIDS denier...I threw my hands up and…"
"Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one. I've tried to read the posts and thought that either some sort of level of discussion wwwaaayyy over my head was taking place or some sort of joke was going on. I'm a complete newbie to this…"
"This episode made the point that if you want to encourage atheism, just encourage people to actually read the bible. I own a bible and keep it near the computer for reference. When I was a teenager, I sat down to read it from cover to cover and got…"
"I love Atheist Experience. I actually found myself quoting Matt when arguing god with my wife. As lame as many of the theist callers' arguments are, I love educating myself with the hosts' replies and strageties (and they are the arguments…"
