Sam Harris how Christianity appears to non-believers
This guy puts things into perspective. Why are the arguments of believers so incredibly unpersuasive to unbelievers? The shared assumptions are not there.

Sam Harris gives an amazing analogy - Diamond in the backyard
This is pretty funny and a brilliant point is made...

Reality might be harsh, but it's insane not to stay in touch! Athists believe in reality and reject fantasy and that makes many people uncomfortable.

Crazy fantasy or grim reality, which is better? That question has me stumped. The problem is that reality can account for the fantasy, but not vice versa. Smoke and mirrors or realistic perspective?

Atheists should come up with some great holiday celebration traditions of their own. Maybe something that is a parody of mainstream holiday traditions. Repurposing the symbols of another tradition worked for Christians, so it might work for atheists too. Just trying to be helpful...
