I‘ve received a number of emails recently asking why atheists focus so much on Christianity and not Islam. (Short answer: In America, at least, Christians are the ones constantly fighting to turn their private beliefs into public laws, not Muslims.)
Anyway, reader Richard passed along this video of a debate between physicist Lawrence Krauss and Muslim activist Uthman Badar. The two-hour debate is over whether belief in god is prohibitive or liberating.
I would at least check out the excerpt at 2:03:53 where Krauss rails on how “religion treats adults like children”:
At 2:06:32, there’s also a nice bit where Krauss responds to the question of how atheism can possibly be inspiring.
If you watch the video, let us know what other bits/timestamps we should check out!
