The first release from the Atheist Debates Patreon project. Journalist and activist Jamila Bey joins us to give her thoughts on debating.
Very powerful interview. Now I need to see her at work!
Suggestion – I know that this is a video, but when it’s an interview I like
to listen to the audio without having to watch the screen; that way I can
do other things like wash dishes. I can’t do that when the questions are
text on the screen. I only get half of the conversation. Would it be
possible to include the full audio next time?
The speed tactic with lots of unsupported arguments is called “Gish
Gallop”, a debate strategy created by creationist shill Duane Gish.
Smart lady. please have my baby.
This is very good Matt, I’m glad you started this project.
This interview was quite enjoyable and, on occasion, funny.
I’ve known her for 29 minutes, and she’s already awesome:D.
I really enjoyed this. I wasn’t so sure I would, but it was very
enlightening and entertaining.
Jamila Bey = awesome!
Thank you +Jamila Bey and thank you +Matt Dillahunty for making this
happen! Great interview.
I always find the monkey business annoying. They are wearing their sheer
ignorance as a badge of pride. Also, it’s the fact that they feel elevated
above monkeys, special if you like, when humans are primates too, just like
monkeys. As far as primates goes, we’re rather weak.
Thanks Matt! This was very enjoyable. I’m looking forward to checking out
I like this one, I think I’d like to see more of her work.
Smart, beautiful woman.
Awesome woman! Beth, Jen and Tracie should invite Jamila to the Godless
Bitches podcast. I could listen to them all week!
I love her calm speaking style! Listening to her makes me proud to be an
atheist. She’s a big reason I decided to come the rest of the way out of
the closet. Her simple quote “If you are not who you are fully (i.e.,
closeted), people who know you don’t really know you.”
i like her! :D
Criticism is the only known antidote to error.
Great interview haha
This is beautiful.
I did not know Jamila Bey. Thanks Matt, good interview!
I don’t know if I can say this without sounding like a jackass, but I
really am pledging for *Matt Dillahunty* content, not just any
If im wrong on a subject, i would like to have someone like her debate me.
Good video, looking forward to future content ^_^
