In Praise of AngieTheAntiTheist

Dear Globlets,

I really enjoy Angie's videos and blogging. She's very intelligent, reasonable, and genuine. Apparently, a few Creationists deconverted after watching this video:



I think it's pretty powerful. Her words feel real. Even to a religious person, what she says makes sense and I can see how it would manage to penetrate.

See minute 6:20 especially.

"The first time I held [my son] in my arms, I just looked at this tiny, perfect, squashed little human being and I couldn't imagine that he was sinful. I couldn't imagine that he deserved hell or death. I couldn't imagine that a god could create something so beautiful, so pure and wonderful, and let it go bad."
