I don't normally watch this guy, but this vid appeared on my suggested watching list and it's good advice even if it did get a bit waffley in the middle.

I quite like TAE, not that it's perfect, but then nothing ever is.
Matt often acknolwedges that he's fallible and makes mistakes, he will even do so on the show when he realises he jumped the gun for example.
He's made other videos that are part of this Atheist Debates series, most of them dealing with common subjects and fallacies on both sides of the debate.
"Respect for personal beliefs = "I am going to tell you all what I think of YOU, but don't dare retort and tell what you think of ME because...it's my personal belief". Hmm. A bully's charter and no mistake."

I just watched this and had thought of making a thread. Generally good advice about getting to the heart of the problem.

No matter how artful and experienced one is at wiggling one's hips, it still takes two to competently tango.
