Penn Jillette: Reading the Bible (Or the Koran, Or the Torah) Will Make You an Atheist.
Penn Jilette was asked to leave his Christian youth group by a pastor who told his parents: "He's no longer learning about the Bible from me. He is now converting everyone in the class to atheism."

This is a fantastic YouTube clip of Bill Nye, the Science Guy, discussing creationism, evolution, and parenting.
It's only a short clip (under 3 min) so, do yourself a favour and watch it.
I just love how he makes an arguement, rationalises it, and destroys the opposition, all without getting cross.

Interesting short video about John Shelby Spong a retired Episcopal bishop from Newark, N.J. who talks about why Christianity must change its view of hell. Spong is one of the leading spokepersons for liberal Christianity.

This is an interesting video about US presidents and how they are perceived religiously, and, whether those perceptions are correct.

Of late I find myself day-dreaming about the formation of a new secular state that accepts atheist immigrants and refugees who are fleeing persecution from extreme religious doctrines. I guess this would be similar in nature to how the independent republic of Liberia was established through the repatriation of American slaves. though free atheists will be far more empowered than emancipated slaves.
