OK, so remixing videos of Pentecostal services is like shooting fish in a barrel, but you've got to love the person who though of turning it into an 90s video game.

YouTube - crazy watering can
Sort of Russell's Teapot with some bite: a brilliantly edited video. Apparently done as a homework assignment: can you do this stuff on home equipment these days? via mefi.

YouTube - Sam Harris - The Witchcraft Argument (By SecularSwede)
Harris gets it. Not sure on his stuff on morality, but this is a good analogy for how I feel about religion.

YouTube - What Atheists Can Learn from the LGBT Movement :: 2010 Secular Student Alliance Annual Conference
Greta Christina gives an hour long talk, which is pretty interesting. One thing I learned was that I probably wouldn't want to live in America, if atheists there have it as bad as LGBT people, though I suppose a lot of it depends on where you are and who you mix with. Interesting bit at the end on how if atheists "win", atheism won't mean you're special, super-rational or whatever: I think we can see that in this country, certainly.

FIREFLY: The Credits Sequence It Deserved! gives Joss Whedon's "Firefly' an 80s style intro sequence. Still not as good as Airwolf's, but a good effort.

YouTube - Carl Sagan: A Universe Not Made For Us
"Excerpts from Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space. More specifically, from the chapter titled A Universe Not Made For Us. I edited together the audio from the audio-book, and added the video from Stephen Hawking's Into the Universe and Brian Cox's Wonders of the Solar System. The music is Jack's Theme from the Lost soundtrack."

George Carlin - Religion is bullshit.
Carlin's classic routine on religion, in which he tells us how he worships the Sun and Joe Pesci. May be "strident".

A life changed by evidence
Series of videos by a former evangelical Christian explaining why he became an atheist. Well produced and informative stuff. The chap makes a palpable effort to show how he was a Christian and how, for much of the time before his deconversion, he thought the things he was learning could be incorporated into Christianity rather than working against it.

It's another subtitled parody of the bunker scene in The Downfall, this one about the leaking of the BNP's membership list. "I should have joined UKIP instead". Very funny.
