Yes, I did know that. He is also a moderator on AdromedasWake's new web board. Don't flood his inbox, though.

I've never been able to finish one of his videos. He is just too crude for me. He also fits the fundamentalist views of atheist which is why VenomFangX liked making videos about him.

I haven't been attacked by votebots yet but I've had some lovely death threats complete with Angel Of Death imagery. :D

Markcus,

I checked out your suggestion. His videos are very, very good. I believe these videos show a compassionate side to Atheism. His explanations of the psychological aspects of belief and religion makes the religious person easier to understand and takes away the vilification of the religious that some atheists have.

I watched several of his youtubes and would like to share them with some others. In asking for that from members of FAN, it seems to me that there are particular qualities to his perspective that would be attractive for some to view. Its been a long search to find something like this. Thanks for putting this on the discussion board.

For those out there that are looking for material that reconciles Spirituality and non belief, I would "argue" that this series can assist in that exploration. I call myself a Spiritual Atheist. Spirituality is not the exclusive domain of religious or believers. It is the emotional side of the healthier more balanced individual.

While a lot of good discussion is had about the inconsistencies in the bible and the odd, irrational beliefs of believers, there is more for us to understand by using the science of psychology and having some compassion for the individual who is handicapped by inadequate education and the limitations of dissempowerement caused by spiritual abuse. This abuse is often cause early in childhood and because critical thinking skills are never learned, the individual is stuck in an immature stage of development.


Likewise, development of the intellect can be overly developed and relied on in an imbalanced way to forestall emotional and spiritual development. I would say that I am developing these now. In balancing these I am finding much more satisfaction and appreciation for life in general. I believe this youtube series can open the doors for the typical Atheist to learn something. I think it can create more balance for our Meetup and offer some very positive alternatives to religion.

Is anyone else familiar with this?
