I highly recommend this book - http://www.makemeamerica.com/

I’m up to, Chapter 4 - Religion, of the audio book, read by Stephen, and this chapter alone is worth the cost. So far this book is hilarious.

And Atheist don’t escape his lashing - “These no-good nick, no-god nicks…it sometimes makes me wonder how a god could exist who would create people who piss me off so much. Luckily a recent survey published in the American Sociological Review revealed that Atheist are the least trusted group in America, less trusted even then Homosexuals, makes sense, at least we trust homosexual’s with our hair.”

Ouch :grin:  and it gets worse!

“Agnostics, Agnostics are just Atheist without balls”

Beware you “Darwin huggers”!

Chapter 4 is 31 minutes of none stop jabs at religion.

I also want to recommend the movie - Flock of DoDos - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0800334/

Skepticality has an interview on its latest podcast with the guy who made this film, Dr. Randy Olson - http://www.skepticality.com/index.php

From the Skepticality web site:

Recent episodes of Skepticality have touched on issues of outreach and activism in the skeptical community, and how skeptics like Jeff Wagg, Alison Smith and Daniel Loxton are using their particular talents to help nurture science and critical thinking.

This week, Derek and Swoopy are pleased to continue this trend with their interview of evolutionary ecologist-turned-filmmaker Dr. Randy Olson.

Dr. Olson’s film, Flock of Dodos: The Evolution - Intelligent Design Circus, is not your typical evolution versus ID documentary. Rather than simply pitting one camp against the other, this whimsical film explores how the two sides of the debate market their ideas to the public—and, more specifically, how the scientific community has failed to capture their audience as effectively as the Intelligent Design camp has done in recent years.

I just started this podcast on the way home, it’s a good one—last few have been better than average.
