If you can, join me on Monday (whoops tuesday!!), I will be informally debating/discussing anti-theism with my fellow YouTuber “Friended FOREVER”*
As I understand it, Friended, whilst himself an atheist, feels that religion provides societal benefits that outweigh any negatives it brings. As someone who has always readily adopted the label “anti-theist” I will be trying to provide both a counter alongside my own criticisms of religion.
Lots of potential things to discuss, such as the philosophical merits and demerits of religion; the origins of religion (and whether we can infer anything from that about the societal merits it brings); the areas of society where religion impacts on everyone (including non-believers) and the contemporary and historical experiences of more and less religious societies.
Or maybe we will just talk shit for an hour and a half!
Past experience would suggest the latter 😉
Hope to see you Tuesday!
