    Atheist videos

    Hey guys, while using YouTube at work on my tablet to listen to music — not really watching them, because I'm doing work — I stumbled across some atheist videos. There are a few popular names I've come across, but so far the best, IMO, is Jaclyn Glenn. She's witty, intelligent, creative, and a former Christian to boot. Religion really isn't the only topic she covers in her videos, but they're the ones I've been watching the most lately. She may not be at the level of, say, Richard Dawkins, whose God Delusion video I've also recently discovered, but she's pretty good. I really enjoy them, and it doesn't hurt that she's easy on the eyes.

    Another decent YouTuber of whose work I've only seen a bit of but also liked, is the Vegan Atheist. He doesn't seem to show his face and may be using some vocal masking, but his videos are well done, too.

    If you're interested in someone a little more in your face and aggressive, then check out the Amazing Atheist. Although he bothers me a bit for straying off-topic sometimes and missing important points which he could also rebut.

    Finally, if you're in the mood for a good deconversion story, which also contains some good arguments, check this one out:

    Enjoy! And share anything else you might enjoy or think relevant to this topic.

    So it sounds like you enjoy listening to deconversion stories. Evid3nc3 has what I think is the best one:

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...C3C1D163BE880A

    He goes into incredible detail about how and why he deconverted, including explaining a lot of textual analysis of the Bible and the origins of the Bible.

    Some channels I enjoy:


    Theoretical Bullshit https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp8...OALmnuJ8d9SUlQ
    He's just some actor, but he happens to have a pretty good understanding of philosophy and really eviscerates theist arguments.


    QualiaSoup https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc_...SYLmXTn-VSQ4uA
    TheraminTrees https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ-...GaL_ITEg-n3OeA
    These two are brothers, and their videos are really good. Some highlights:






    Potholer54 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClj...F7LS9xx9eWq0GQ
    Potholer54 is a science journalist, so his arguments are incredibly well sourced, and he meticulously shows you how to check sources. He is at his best when criticizing how the media presents science, but his series on climate change is a must-see:

    AronRa https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAJ...ukTekgSRZrjadw
    Come for the taxonomy, stay for the politics.


    TheMessianicMechanic https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQb...qKKWOC98C8Rm2A
    Another atheist channel that focuses on refutations.


    I hope this is enough to keep you occupied for a while!

    That will keep me busy for a while, Underseer! Thanks!

    Yes, I've heard of Evid3nc3 before. One of the videos I mentioned referenced him, so I've been meaning to check him out.
