Go to: Nearer My Atheism to Thee: How to Respond to Theists

Arcados's Avatar Jump to comment 101 by Arcados

I really don't see a point in picking on Shermer so much. I enjoy his talks probably less so than Dawkins or Harris or Hitchens, but I think his goals are a bit different. If you read his columns, he is a rationalist and nonbeliever like any of us, but his gripes are usually with things like poverty and bad science rather than religion.

It's like attacking James Randi for not being anti-religious enough. It's just not his main thing.

It's very nice to see an interviewer from Pakistan, a professedly Muslim country, to nail this guy to the wall about his beliefs. It's reassuring to see that this is not the norm.

I'm sure the actual debates will be enlightening and civil.

It's unfortunate that the host felt the need to inject some little jabs to get the audience on-side. It's so transparent and cheap, it's a shame.

I'd love to see the full version of this talk, if it's been posted. I can't seem to find it on google video.
