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.<br /> <br /> Tags: Oprah, Oprah Winfrey, Oprah atheists, Oprah atheism, Oprah Atheist, Oprah religion, Oprah God, God, religion, atheists, atheism, atheist, Christianity, Islam, Christian, Muslims, Talk show, strawman, Atheists believe in God, afterlife, cheap shot, Dawkins, reason, science, universe, god and science, science and religion, God of the Gaps, Pascal's Wager, EducationIsCool Atheist Experience #493: Pascal's Wager tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2011-10-02:2182797:Video:1678292 2011-10-02T11:41:11.708Z Donegal http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/Donegal <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/atheist-experience-493-pascal-s-wager"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/Ql9aZkG398DwyD9V5WSRjAKxqNEuMqkU2AZyu9qatYQujs4CaUUg1QDCTTBOy9IkCiunJ*LY8KQUU3NehkWl1AJop2Rty1UI/882414992.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Don takes on the "Believe or else!" pseudo argument, commonly given by Christians.<br></br> <br></br> The Atheist Experience is a weekly cable access television show in Austin, Texas geared at a non-atheist audience.

And if a god doesn't exist, we lose absolutely nothing by our non-belief.<br /> <br /> It's just as good as Pascal's Wager, this one...except that it more closely fits the facts. I've essentially done this video before, but it needed refining and I'm better at this now. Plus, I have a ton of new subscribers, many of whom have probably never seen the original video, so it seemed the right thing to do, to present this message again.
