I hear so often that the angry atheist isn't helping the movement. Being angry doesn't help our position or cause. It doesn't push the conversation forward. It doesn't help move people away from faith or belief. It only serves to fortify the religious in their rut of superstitious ideas.
Or does it? When I was a believer, I got angry at all the caustic atheists, and wanted to prove them wrong. Doing so moved me to atheism. I realized that the jerk may be a jerk, but he was also right.
Let's talk about the different ways people talk about atheism and within the atheism movement. Are the mean, angry atheists helping?
Plus your calls. Let the awesomeness wash over you.

"You only want to be an atheist so you can go on sinnng!" Ever heard that before? There is so much wrong with this question, I want to do an entire show on it.
Do I want to be an atheist? Is sin the reason? What sin? Why would anyone think this?
I'll give my perspective.
Plus, your calls. The awesomeness is in your hands.
Is there "good news" in atheism? Is there a reason to be hopeful without god? I think so.
Let's talk about why it is good news that there is no god. Why it is so wonderful that there is no afterlife, no grand design, no ultimate purpose.
Plus your calls.
Awesomeness will be in spades.

So many people think that atheists are all scientists or at least have an advanced understanding of science, but that is not true. However, just because someone does not have an affinity for science, does not mean they cannot accept the science that is out there. Just because someone cannot work out a complicated scientific method, does not mean they cannot look at life rationally.
