The Atheist Experience is a weekly call-in television show in Austin, Texas geared at a non-atheist audience. The Atheist Experience is produced by the Atheist Community of Austin.

The Atheist Community of Austin is organized as a nonprofit educational corporation to develop and support the atheist community, to provide opportunities for socializing and friendship, to promote secular viewpoints, to encourage positive atheist culture, to defend the first amendment principle of state-church separation, to oppose discrimination against atheists and to work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.

We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.

  1. Why bother with logic ?
    The creator isn't restricted by reason or common sense.
    He can make babies without using the normal procedure.
    He can make a horse fly, he can even make a house fly, but I ain't never seen an elephant fly.

  2. Unfortunately, most religionists believe ALL scientists approach everything with a preconceived notion and only accept evidence that supports their preconceptions. They claim all scientists worship a religion of science whose major preconception is that there is no god. It's makes no sense to argue with them until they study science.

  3. What is baffling to me is the simple CONTRADICTION between reality and the bible stories. The Moses fallacy for exmple. We now know that the Pharao involved in the STORY is RAMES III the grand nephew of RAMES II. RAMES III reigned without ANY extinction of his army. The whole "event" NEVER HAPPENED!!! ONLY A STORY!!!

  4. I like to think that I could take any side of an argument and make a case, regardless of my own convictions.
    So, here we go.
    BTW, I will be answering as “God”, no offense to anyone.

    Q: Why doesn’t God make his “word” clear and known?
    A: I did, people aren’t so bright, I had 20 commandments & you’re lucky you even got the 10!
    And those weren’t 100% accurate!
    Moses wasn’t so great with dictation, I had to write them for him, you’d think that would be it, I came up with the phrase “written in stone” for that reason & yet, you still screwed them up.
    Moses was also really bad with directions, why do you think you were walking in the wilderness so long? Oy Vey!
    And that’s why, to this day, you guys won’t ask for directions, that’s an inside joke for me.(God joke)
    BTW, YOU (people) added all that slave nonsense, that wasn’t from God (& yes, I’ll refer to myself in the 3rd person, if I please)

    Q: That doesn’t explain why you don’t just make sure your message is completely understood?
    A: I’m infinite, my patience is not.

    Q: Why don’t you appear to everyone?
    A: Oh yeah, like I’m not busy, at all!
    Plus, the last time I sent an angel, you ended up with Mormonism.
    That’s what you people do.

    Q: If the Bible is wrong, because of humans, why don’t you fix it?
    A: I did, once! Now, I’m just curious what will happen. Your whole “free will” thing I gave you, is solely for my entertainment. You’re essentially a reality show, and I sometimes like to allow myself to be surprised by the crazy shit you do.

    Q: Why should we believe in God?
    A: Because I said so. It’s like trying to rationalize with a 2 year old. You can’t even conceptually understand nothingness, and you want me to prove myself to you?

    Q: What about all of the other religions in the world?
    A: What about them?

    Q: Are they going to Hell?
    A: On behalf of which religion are you asking for?

    Q: Are non-Christians going to hell?
    A: Hell is a concept, by which you measure your pain.

    Q: Where have you been for so long?
    A: I’m infinite, 2,000 years is like last a Tuesday, to me.

    Q: What evidence is there for your existence?
    A: When I created you in our image, I should have really dialed back the ego.
    Evidence is for science, faith is for religion.
    I called it “belief” for a reason, I didn’t call it “the most probable explanation, barring any additional findings!”
    Jesus Christ!
    Yes, is it time Father?
    I’m not talking to you, and no, not yet.

    Q: Last question, what is your message for humanity?
    A: I have two.
    1. It’s better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.
    2. All you need is love, love is all you need.

  5. Real Science: God ( Absolute Scientist) Natural Law Of The Universe Under God (Study Of Science)

    Religion: Low IQ Man Made Ritualistic Ideologies Of Fiat Control, Fiat Power, Fiat Knowledge, Fiat Perception

  6. My public school Earth Science teacher brought this theory up when religious students started ranting and raving around the age of the earth based in the school book. It was just to placate the 10 or so religious students out of 30. The rest of us didn't care. I grew up going to church every Sunday, but a lot of the bible was down played to mainly allegories. If you know how Episcopalians can be about that sort of thing?? Though you could ask two people in the congregation the same question about anything related to God or the bible and get completely different answers. Such is true in any church too.

  7. Trying to reconcile the Bible with reality is an exercise in futility. For example, how would one explain the distribution of life? Why after the Flood did all the lemurs go to Madagascar and nowhere else? Why did the penguins all head south, while the polar bears all headed north? Why did the kangaroos all go to Australia? And on and on it goes.
