Oprah says Atheists in Awe Believe in God

Like all of my videos, this one is protected by the FAIR USE clause under section 107 of copyright law, as this video provides criticism/commentary in response to a video.

So talk show host Oprah Winfrey said that atheists aren't really atheists if they are in "awe" with the universe, and therefore they believe in God. How anyone could misrepresent our position like this is beyond me, let alone a so-called "icon" loved by America. Further, Oprah is willing to go low by suggesting that perhaps a dead figure was wrong on the afterlife. Maybe this is why most rational folks are skeptical of popular media, along with how the media portrays atheists.

I said it before and will repeat: Oprah needs to get over herself.  Awe does not necessarily equal god, nor does god automatically equal awe ... though I'm sorely tempted to say, "awe, SHIT" at this whole stupid business!

No Oprah, awe, is a natural human reaction to things we don't understand.  The difference is, an atheist asks why, where the religious say god.   Classic god of the gaps.
