1:08:56 – A bit more serious: discussing the reasons why I became an atheist from experiences in my early childhood to the present, including most recently my beautiful mummy's struggle with cancer and passing on.

Also briefly refuting some of the misconceptions about atheists including intolerance, arrogance, spirituality, materialism, wishful thinking, heaven, the celestial dictatorship and such.

BONUS: A very quick, foolproof test you can use to see if someone who trashes evolution has actually studied it.

DISCLAIMER: This episode was not recorded to insult people, it's just an explanation for why personally I'm atheist. If you are religious you may be offended, but please know that in my heart that it was not my intention.

You may say I'm a dreamerBut I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

And the world will be as one.
