    Wow. Powerful stuff. It sums up my beliefs perfectly. Had to show my teenage boys as I am never so eloquent. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I was turned off by the emphasis on free will. Fibbs hasn’t figured out that free will is an illusion and thus has not yet discarded that aspect of his religious baggage.

    • Brandon Fibbs

      This is, of course, debatable, and either way, your criticism exist out of context.

        If you wish to dispute the contention that we are all products of our genes and our environments, I don’t think you will get very far with your argument. Early in the video you talked about “when I gave up a belief in God.” I would merely ask what caused you to give up that belief. Whatever that was, it surely was one of the causes which resulted in your making of the video.
