I would like to give thanks to God for creating the DVR and allowing me to record the show.

Richard was in full strident form, got some good laughs out of it... and he's right, when these religious nuts come out you have to call them to the mat on the crazy shit they say and do.

Second I'd like to say that the Aus hit a home run with his words:"The dirty little secret of the church is... no one's reading it. If people did read it then religion would suffer a massive blow." (The gist of what he said, not verbatim.) Basically if people actually read it and analyzed the bible it would throw up alarms starting on page one, and not stopping until the book closed. This guy, Aus, is one of those few that got sucked into religion but wouldn't get rose-colored glasses and deny anything opposed to religious teachings no matter how much things made sense. I'd really like him to go in-depth on his deconversion, and even go so far as to ask if the church does anything covert to dissuade 'the faithful' from learning about reality vs the teachings of the bible.

Gotta say, I was kinda worried when I saw Pinker... some mousy little dude, gonna spout off some crazy shit, get all hysterical at moments... I was dead wrong. Pinker is a serious dude, well spoken, and sharp as a ginsu knife hot off the snakestone. o.O

If you haven't watched it get on youtube or find it wherever it is... good stuff.
