Is arguing against religion and irrationality just "Preaching to the Choir"?

    I hear this criticism from time to time, leveled at a range of targets, from the recent "new" atheists, to people arguing for the validity of evolution in the face of creationist claims, to right here at JWD and criticism of Jehovah's Witnesses and other forms of fundamentalism.

    "You are just wasting your time, preaching to the converted", and "Believers are not going to be swayed by such criticism of their faith, so why bother?"

    I'm not sure I had a coherent response to this before, but I do now in the form of this concise and insightful video from a youtube favorite of mine:

    Wish I could watch vids at my current location, but can't.

    If I can squeeze it in tonight, I will.

    Good to hear from you inkling.

    Excellent vid. Very well done.

    When he mentioned people in "very oppressed groups" I wondered if he had any JW contacts. Not that we've got a monopoly on oppression.
