    Can anyone summarise what she said, because i am not spending an hour watching that.

    Because we’re always being told how we should believe in everyone else’s imaginary friend.

    Religion is like a penis: it’s fine for you to have one, it’s fine for you to be proud of it. But please stop waving it around in public and trying to ram it down my throat. 😉

    I think what most Atheists say, over the space of an hour or less, can me summarised in the sentence ‘there is no God’

    Do I win a prize?

    The opening minute was like an awful consultant’s powerpoint pitch crossed with a bad stand up. So a summary would be nice.

    No not unshakeable. Soon as you show me any evidence whatever for the existence of your god I will be happy to join you in church.

    As an agnostic I do tend to find atheists to be a lot more angry and in your face than religious types

    Nothing new. Even heard the one about the Catholic church being the reason that so many people in Africa are dying of Aids. Ermm… you know, most African countries aren’t particularly Catholic, and if you plot Percentage of Catholics vs AIDS related deaths, what do you see? That’s right. Nothing, it’s been said 3 times already and it’s still not true.

    I’ve managed to move from anger to a sort of pitying, derisory contempt… 🙄

    When atheists start committing acts of terrorism, blowing people up and starting wars, then we will have gone some way too match the anger of religion.

    Now who wants to wrestle?

    I think I’d be more tempted to sit out the 48 minutes and hear what she had to say, if it weren’t for the crowd a-whoopin’ and a-hollerin’ every time she says something they agree with (which, given that she’s a sceptic talking to a bunch of sceptics, is all the time).

    I get just as annoyed with militant atheists like Dawkins as I do with militant Christians. I don’t know how I’d classify myself, really. I know God exists, but only in other people’s heads.

    ESP has a church now? Does it have stained glass windows depicting stars and circles and wavy lines?

    Cougar – hence the link to the spitting image clip is so amusing and spot on!!

    I gave up within 2 mins – does the audience go as far as to chant, “Amen, sister”?

    there’s 135 million catholics in africa, if i was in the position to advise, i’d reccomend wearing a condom. statistics can say anything but it’s still a shit load of people.

    It’s actually well worth listening, whichever side of the fence you sit – I just had it on as audio in the background. Maybe you lot have heard it all before, but I hadn’t, and she doesn’t just say the same thing over and over for an hour.

    Though I suppose I can’t really expect any comments from those who’ve listened to the whole thing less than an hour after posting!

    I’d recommend not shagging dodgy hookers. When they do, is that the popes fault too?

    Surely if they were proper sceptics then they’d be suspicious of everything she said?

    I think it could be summarised better as ‘if you don’t believe in what I believe, then you are an ignorant narrow minded idiot’

    yes. if you’re an atheist, everything is the pope’s fault.

    How is Richard Dawkins “militant”? He has no quarrel with individual religious people. He isnt even 100% atheist himself, is perfectly willing to accept he could be wrong, but based on the evidence, he thinks that isnt all that likely. What could be wrong with coming to that conclusion? It’s the CERTAINTY of the religious that gives me the creeps.

    What about when the infected person is your partner? not as convenient as “dodgy hookers” is it?
