Atheist Matt Dillahunty responds to a question of faith

Atheist Matt Dillahunty responds to a question of faith

Do people need as much faith to not believe in god, as to believe in god?

There is no certainty in religion, if there was why are there so many religions? I am certain there is no God. The evidence as I see it means that it is impossible for there to be one omnipotent etc etc superforce or whatever. Bring back polytheism I say, at least then you didn't have idiots thinking that their imaginary friend was the only imaginary friend possible and all other imaginary friends were wrong. If there is a God, (and I truly believe there is not) don't you think it might be getting a bit peeved by all the christians, jews and muslims all getting a teensy weensy bit childish in a 'my Dads bigger than yours'kinda way?? Your're all supposed to have the same Father doofus'.

suprising & sinister end to an interesting discussion. That a person can sound so reasonable in debate for 11 mins before threatening violence like that scares me...not least cause the caller's faith undoubtedly teaches love & compassion in attempting to engage non-believers. Likely his own selective interpretation of the Bible lets him justify this kind of behaviour. Dillahunty's reaction is so unphased, it's sad testament to just how must abuse he must be used to recieving in a country like the US.

So is it an absolute certainty that you shouldn't believe in absolute certainty?

Latest comment: "God is a concept, by which we measure our pain", John Lennon God is simply a term we give to the higher order of the world. The issue rises when we, in our limited way, fight over the definition. No two people see the sunset in the same way. Nor can we see God, likewise.

wtf...i actually really like this guy, he's very calm and what he say's is fair enough.the guy on the phone should not have got so frustrated, he was just saying personally i dont beleive there is a god...he did not say i can prove there is no god.he did'nt do anything wrong. i dont think the guy on the phone new as much about his religion or science to step into such an argument. i mean to threaten the guy at the end...that was poor, anyone who shared his religion would have said what the hell are you doing at that point.....think the phone guy may have been a bit self righteous.

It's wrong to think of religion as a "belief system". That's the whole problem - it's a certainty system.

If only the rest of the world was as level headed as this guy! He's got his own opinions but also understands that others have different beliefs/opinions and he respects that. He's even admitted that he may be wrong! If only others could do the same! My religious beliefs are very different to his but I hav a lot of respect for this guy!

hahaha fantastic. You have to watch this right to the end cos it's hilarious! The guy on the phone seems to be trying to argue his point but accepting that the atheist may be able to make a few good points himself but all of a sudden he just can't take it any more and gets angry!
