I'm surrounded by these people.

I go in, mind my own business, get what I need to do done, and then I go home.

Oooooh yes, felt good hearing this video. The atheists' love affair of statism really irritates me, especially guys like Sam Harris who won't shut up about science and morality. I think you nailed the reasons as to why I feel so annoyed by it in this video — these people are so brilliant and rational in certain areas, so they have that credibility. Then they move ship and... pow! They're supporting violence.

Great show, as usual!

I request a version of the end of this video, done with some nice animation.  Just the part 18:36 to the end. You stated the "give it away" message so beautifully, it deserves its own video. It deserves something pretty to go with the words - something that will make it go viral. You hit the nail squarely on the head.

"To want leaders and at the same time
want to be free is to want the impossible. It's necessary to choose one
or the other: to be free, entirely free, denying all authority, or to
be slaves perpetuating the domination of many by one man." ~ Ricardo
Flores Magon

Statheists Exposed!  That was phenomenal, Stef.  I can't wait to start spreading this one around.  

I hope that Sam Harris gets word of this criticism somehow.

Excellent vid!

This would make for a splash, and likely a ban, at this forum [:)]

Great, great, great cast!!!

The vomit sandwich was priceless...

I get irritated anytime I see Bill Gates get involved with anything other than computers.  This was particularly revolting for me:

Microsoft's largest customer in the United States Army. 

Its third-largest
customer is the United States Air Force.

I enjoyed this bit...

“We leverage the Office platform, Windows Server 2008 Active Directory,
Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft digital rights management and
encryption technologies, so that our code is leaner and meaner and it is
easier for our customers to deploy, with fewer risks of problems,”

Leverage indeed. [^o)]

What about this particular part of the speech did you find revolting? Just Bill Gates or something of what he had to say?

I posted a link to Stefan's video on Sam Harris's 'Project Reason' site, as well a link in the comment thread of the HuffPost story.  I'm curious to see what happens.
