I also suggest everyone to search for "EdwardCurrent" on youtube to see the rest of his videos.

That video sucks (but the sarcasm is pretty funny).

As a strong atheist myself, I thought it was a fun and a make-me-feel-good video. Also as a strong atheist, I see immediately how it is facile and fallacious in several ways.

Yeah, I checked out EdwardCurrent's other videos. I agree with a lot of what he says in that they're typical atheist arguments. However, I don't like that he has a burr up his butt specifically about Christians. It's very much about EdwardCurrent vs. Christians. Jews, Muslims, etc. get a free pass. Seems quite and too politically correct for my taste. What comes to mind is some practicing Christian hurt him at some point in his life; maybe a girlfriend dumped him badly, but I'm guessing.

Maybe it's because he doesn't know dick about judaism and islam, making it difficult to be funny about it. It's all about refering to the "message" so if you don't know a single quote of it you're boned. Just a guess. But I agree and I'd love to see more actually funny stuff about islam and judaism instead of the usual dorky mix of fear and hate.
It's not as if there wasn't a wealth of material to make fun of them, what with all their kooky clerics and all.

It's hard to know for sure where he's coming from. If he's just having fun with some arguments actual Christians make (and believe me, the real nutjobs on both sides aren't on RSP) then I think he's funny and making some good digs.
