Bertrand Russell Queried About His Atheism

Bertrand Russell Queried About His Atheism January 6, 2010

I found it both fascinating and a little dispiriting to watch this video and get the keen sense that it might as well have been made yesterday since essentially all the straw men of atheists and trite, easily refutable arguments against atheism offered against Russell here are still propagating endlessly today.   It’s a reminder of why I blog about atheism so much—it’s not always because the arguments to be made on its behalf are new, but it’s sometimes because the same bad objections to it which were long ago refuted need endlessly to be re-answered for as long as the obstinate still keeping making them.  It’s a job that requires a lot of patience.  Watch the video below and learn from a master how it’s done:
