At 1:19 the speaker shows some dogs on the screen, which is not relevant to the topic of the talk at all.

At 2:30 they talk about Iron Man, which again has nothing to do with the topic of this talk.

It should be called, perhaps, 'From Iron Man to religion'.

At 3:12 about their own age.

This talk is so incredibly stupid. I guess from @barncat's input that it is about Christianity. I don't want to scroll the video until the speaker actually starts talking about religion.

What were you trying to create, @rampelflik, by pasting this video? What inspired you in it? Could you clarify by posting under my comment timestamps that are particularly interesting?

Christianity is but a glorified human sacrifice. I don't understand why the speaker validates the religion by referring to it in the talk. (I am assuming it is the case).

Religious human sacrifice hasn't been practiced in the USA for hundreds of years. Why won't the speaker demonstrate their knowledge of some modern religion?

I don't want to continue to write comments under your articles, as then the comments would become too similar to one another; yet the articles themselves are so incredibly similar. I see that you earned 22 cents for just pasting this video, without putting any of your own work to it.

Could you please seriously analyze the video and get back to me?

I don't agree that the talk is stupid.

My goal was just to share something that I find inspiring. I should've posted a disclaimer. I do that with most posts where I share other peoples work. I didn't do it here because I was short on time, as I am now.

I agree, Christianity is indeed about glorified human sacrifice, at least partly.

I won't be writing an analysis of the video. You may draw your own conclusions.

Thank you for your comment.

No, he's a fool. He's not only a fool, he's a dishonest fool. Christianity is based on eyewitness testimony and other things that we know are true. So it's dishonest to talk about going from religion to reason.

A great book for an honest skeptic is "Evidence That Demands A Verdict" by Josh McDowell. Like many books on apologetics it was written by someone determined to expose Christianity as being false. He became convinced of the truth of Christianity and became a Christian.

Much of the Bible, especially the New Testament, covers events seen by eyewitnesses or those who talked to eyewitnesses. As the Bible says,

(Luke 1:1-4 NIV) Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, {2} just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. {3} Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, {4} so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.

(2 Peter 1:16 NIV) We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

(1 Corinthians 15:3-8 NIV) For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance : that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, {4} that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, {5} and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. {6} After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. {7} Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, {8} and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.

Most people who are hostile to Christianity have no clue about the power of God to change the people who accept Christ as their Savior and who follow him with their whole heart. God turns his children into better people in ways that would be impossible to do through self-effort.

If you don't like him or others who speak up on this subject. Why don't you pray for us to stop?

Why would I pray that? I have a chance to expose the lies of atheists. That's a good thing. Not a bad thing.

There's no personal dislike. I dislike what he says because he deliberately lies about what he secretly knows to be true. Hell will be extremely hot for him because of that.

I don't buy it. Are you sure you're not praying for us to shut up because you know it wouldn't work?

Also, to me it seems that when you say; "...he's a fool. He's not only a fool, he's a dishonest fool." you are not talking about Seth. You are instead talking about yourself. It looks like classic psychological projection from my perspective.

I also highly doubt that the book you mentioned has any valid reasoning to ad to the this discussion.

I'll point anyone who is reading with us to this series:

Praying for somebody without their permission constitutes a psychic attack, and I am sure @barncat understands that. Don't just challenge them to pray for people without their permission! It's unethical and creates bad karma.

Fortunately @barncat knows better than that and did not accept your challenge.

The question was rhetorical. Don't bother praying for me. Although I wouldn't mind it. I don't care what people think in their own heads, I they certainly shouldn't have to ask for permission for that, because that would be truly unethical.
