Thunderf00t Advice on Partnership from a Partne...
This is a reply to Thunderf00t recent video on YouTube inviting him into the Partner Program. www.youtube.com/watch?v=8z9dIJRqBN4
One piece of advice is to go for the Partner Program but do not submit your older videos for revenue sharing. YouTube has a policy of not recognizing fair use and that is unfortunate. By submitting your video for Revenue Sharring you are giving YouTube the option to delete your video if they so choose. Here is what happened to me.

Video responses Re Christians Say the Dumbest T...
Here is my response to his video happycabbie.blogspot.com/2011/03/what-does-shepherd-mean-to-christian.html
I have decided not to make a video, but I have written out a response in my blog. See the link above. The reason I decided not to waste my time doing the video is because honestly I don't think he would listen. However as stated in the comments of my video, many were interested in my thoughts so I put them in a blog for anyone who wants to read them.
Thunderf00t your science videos are top notch. Nobody can pwn a creationist like you can, however you have very little understanding of Christianity. This has been demonstrated over and over in the countless video responses to your Through the Bible series. It is my opinion that you just do not want to learn about it. You do however wish to debate against it, which is extremely frustrating to people like me who know how Christians think.

VenomFangX has returned
At last no more atheists fighting atheists. www.youtube.com/VenomFangX
He has done a lot of things wrong, but I am interested in seeing if he will be different. One thing is for sure, the atheist community will finally be united once more.

Thunderf00t and ShredderLivesOn on BlogTV
This was on blogTV a few days ago. One criticism I have to make towards Shredder is his attitude. There was no need for such a hostile attitude. To Thunderf00t while I credit you for answering your critics you were rather dismissive at times. In my opinion you should do more of these, but if you wish to engage your critics then I would encourage you to do so at a scheduled time. For example I think you should do a session with Coughlan616 or DlandonCole. I myself would even be willing to take another swing at you if you like.
In my opinion Shredder may have scored some points but his attitude cost him. I will leave the comments open however I will not be responding to any comments here. Watch the video and then you decide who won.

Creationist Cowards Diss Darwin
So Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron of The way of the Master have again chosen to let their actions speak to the worth of character that their religion instills. In their latest publicity stunt they have decided to take a book written 150 years ago by Charles Darwin and put in the front a 50 page introduction, a significant portion of which is devoted to bad mouthing the dead.
Yup thats right, apparently dissing the dead is now fair game if you are a creationist.
Unfortunately they havent realized that this is utterly independent of whether evolution is correct or not. The only take home message just how cheap creationists are willing to go to attack science they dont understand.
To my mind there is only one appropriate response, and thats to basically call them on their socially reprehensible behavior:- maybe we need a modified bible to explain simple decency and logic to such folk.
So far, Ray, Kirk, Ken Ham n co have shown a masterly reluctance to present a scientific case, and claim that this is due to some persecution. Well okays fellas, you are formally invited to present your case on one of the more open and public forums of our time. Here on youtube.
I had to put this video together on the road, and in some haste, so please forgive the sound, and some of the production shortcomings.

RE An Open Letter to Educators
pogobat aka 'Dan Brown' is one of those yammer at the camera type guys... very entertaining I'm sure, but when he blows smoke trying to justify why him dropping out of school was 'a good thing as it was interfering with his education', and that really it wasn't his fault, it was that the university lecturers didn't know his name (lmao), and didn't organize his social calendar for him, and they expected him to learn stuff EVEN THOUGH THE INTERNETS EXISTS.... its time to call bullshit on the bullshit artist. Especially seeing as his 'dropping out is good AND NOT MY FAULT' message seems to have resonated with his seemingly young and impressionable audience.
-This video was put together in haste as a form of reducing the damage caused by pogobat.
Yeah I know the guy is vain (the guy really included the key word 'handsome' in his description of his video about education!), egotistical, subscriber whore/BS artist, and I have little doubt that part of what was going through his mind while doing this was to create some drama by bad mouthing education and showing what a rebel he is by proudly dropping out.
Great for him I'm sure.... but shite for society... and the future of society.
I only addressed the core of his arguments here (mostly the strawman about university education ONLY being about learning facts), a lot of the rest of what he says is bs too (google being a wonderful company...lol tell china that!), and how the value of information is going down. Education is more important now than ever, and to operate in a technologically advanced civilization you need to know somewhat of how it functions. The guy with the 'right information' and right ability to implement that information is more valuable than ever.

Why do people laugh at creationists? part 26 Sa...

Part of a series of videos exposing the funny stupidity of creationists and why they deserve to be laughed at. In each case the creationist statements are shown to be outrageously stupid by even the most rudimentary knowledge of science.
This episode is significantly different from previous episodes in that it has a political background.
The vice presidential candidate for the Republican Party this year is the creationist Sarah Palin. The presidential candidate himself is 72 years old, and if he dies, that means that there will be a dangerously ignorant, hard core religious nut running the United States.
Given that Palin doesnt know what the Bush Doctrine is (the source of one of the biggest US foreign policy blunders in recent history), and thinks that praying for soldier will protect them, I thought this worthy of a rather unusual episode of WPDLAC.
The Sleeping Giant
Draw Muhammad Day on Facebook at:
I was kinda disappointed by just how few people understood 'the sleeping giant' reference.
It of course referred to the rather prophetic quote from the IJN Fleet commander, Admiral Yamamoto after the annihilation of the US Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor.
War is always a bloody business, and Yamamoto understood two key factors, firstly the 'character' of the US, and how when sufficiently incited they could be terrible and single minded, and secondly, that once the US industrial might had been fully mobilized it would be unstoppable.
Yamamoto second rather prophetic statement after the bombing of Pearl Harbor was 'I can run wild for 6 months, after that I hold no real hopes of victories'. 6 months after came the decisive (although to be fair a large element of the outcome was down to luck) Battle of Midway which crippled the lions share of the IJN naval air power.
Three years later Japans cities were getting systematically raised to the ground, culminating of course in the double nuking of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.... but that's a different story.
Many of those without the historical background to understand this filled in the meaning of the quote as they saw fit. Those with axes to grind 'gleefully rejoiced' and declared that 'thunderf00t supports and advocates genocide'.
They didn't stop there though, many went on to show how 'Thunderf00t is exactly the same as the extremists' with such specious reasoning as 'thunderf00t zealously advocates something, and so do the terrorists, so they are the same'.
I also didn't make it clear in the earlier shorter videos the difference between a dispassionate appraisal of history and an extrapolation of likely events based on historical precedent and current military dispositions and Dawahfilms fantasizing about how his religion, gives him the right.... no demands that he kills certain people.
For the benefit of those who didn't spot the difference, a rational and strategic assessment of a problem is not the same as publicly fantasizing about how a magic book gives you the right, AND REQUIRES that you kill people.
Eric Hovind OFFICIALLY accepts atheism is true ...
For those who don't get the title, Eric Hovind put up his copy of the video under the title of 'OFFICIAL'. What makes it official? Nothing, its simply Eric trying to score a little attention, and yeah, sure under the circumstances I have nothing against a little honest reciprocation. FYI Eric will get the attention he craves. Just as did Venomfangx, Nephillmfree, Kent Hovind, Ray Comfort and many others who have prominently featured in the 'Why do People Laugh at Creationists' series. He's going to have to wait his turn to become infamous though, as 38 and 39 are already works in progress.
Eric Hovind, the Atheist, also does that 'ladies and gentlemen'- addressing the crowd- shockofgod type thing.
Yup, when someone acts in that bad a faith, you really shouldn't be surprised to find out you are dealing with a Hovind.
