Two great atheist video bloggers. If you look at only two, look at these.
As a person making a full time occupation of studying and researching aspects of human evolution, I find myself spending a rather surprising amount of time defending my viewpoints to blinkered religious nutballs. In saying this, it’s fairly evident that I am an atheist and a happy one at that. In a previous post I spoke a little about how I find meaning in science and I may explore that a little more later in another post (thank you to those who sent encouraging emails regarding this).
Anyhow, in my YouTube procrastinations I have stumbled across two terrific video bloggers dedicated to fighting for atheism and rationalist viewpoints. Much like these two, I’m no longer comfortable with allowing religious types to be involved with the media or politics and intend to take a more active stance in opposing those who would push their whacky convictions on others.
First up, we have AronRa, a Texan who has been a vocal opponent of the teaching of creationism in schools. Despite his terrifying visage, the man is exceptionally eloquent and one of the best arguers of rationalism I have ever come across.

Secondly, we have Thunderf00t, the maker of a terrific series exploring why it is that we laugh at creationists, among other brilliant vids. His videos are highly entertaining and from personal experience I can tell you that showing them to religious types is sure to make them blush if not storm off and never talk to you ever again (either way, good result).

I hope you enjoy these! Should I have time, I’m considering a vlog of my own, though first I shall focus on getting more articles up on this blog! The cobwebs are growing thick and fast!
