@Looter: "I like that this video goes to show that the toughest to bring to faith are those with volitional objections. Sometimes individuals will hold on to them so long that it hurts them. They don’t want God to be true because they don’t want to submit themselves to any authority that would restrict their most cherished freedoms."
Volitional objections? What the fuck does that mean? A 'volitional' atheist is one who arrived at the conclusion that there is no god based on the lack of evidence of said god. They made up their own mind, hence, they acted on their own volition - no one coerced them and they weren't born that way, Gaga.
It isn't an objection of any kind, Looter. It is a rational, thoughtful, reflective, analytical determination devoid of 'objections' or emotions of any kind. All atheists are volitional atheists, so your comment about the reasons why we are atheists (" (we) don't want god to be true because (we) don't want to submit (ourselves) to any authority that would restrict (our) most cherished freedoms" is targeting every atheist I know and every other atheist on the planet - and there are hundreds of millions of us.
And it is a lie. The opposite, as I've pointed out, is true; the more religious a person, state, country or region the more likely it is to be dysfunctional. Those are the facts, and they are irrefutable.
If you can find an atheist not meeting that description give me their contact information. We atheists don't put up with "Those who hold emotional objections to belief have usually been burned by believers and even Christians." Those aren't really atheists (and, Looter, I don't know any atheist that fits that description). And if we find out they are masquerading as atheists we convene a secret meeting of atheists and call the offender in, wherein we take back their Spock ears and refuse to respond to the offender's live long and prosper fist bump. That's pretty much it; we atheists are a humane sort. Oh yes, one more thing. If the apply for reinstatement (of their Spock ears and fist bump), they have to pass a test that includes hooking them up to a Q sensor and then show them pictures of jesus. If they show any emotional reaction they don't get their ears back. Or the fist bump.
