We welcome your comments on the open blog thread for this show.

YouTube comments are at present disabled in our channel, to the displeasure of some. However, each video has a prominent link to the associated open thread that appears on our blog. In the past we’ve tried opening up the channel to comments, but we found that a very high number of episodes wound up being flooded with a combination of spam, long winded apologists, and various obscene or misogynistic comments directed at various hosts by people with an axe to grind. This seems to be the nature of YouTube comment sections, in our experience.

We do moderate the blog, the same way that we moderate chat during the show, as well as comments on our Facebook group. For comment sections that are “officially” associated with our show (and, to a much lesser extent, channels that may give the unintended appearance of being official), we prefer not to play host to straight up ad hominem attacks and bigotry. As a general policy we do not block commenters simply on the basis of disagreement with our point of view. However, we do prefer discussion environments that don’t actively chase off more reasonable contributors.

You can read more about this show on the Atheist Experience blog:


The Atheist Experience is a weekly call-in television show in Austin, Texas geared at a non-atheist audience. The Atheist Experience is produced by the Atheist Community of Austin.

The Atheist Community of Austin is organized as a nonprofit educational corporation to develop and support the atheist community, to provide opportunities for socializing and friendship, to promote secular viewpoints, to encourage positive atheist culture, to defend the first amendment principle of state-church separation, to oppose discrimination against atheists and to work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.

We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.

no taurus excretus says:

They members of the cult of Christ an their cult leader was around of course they came out for the same reason Charles Manson minions came running when he called them

The Logician says:

This man is such an intellectual right? ahahah WRONG. at 10:09 "ste ste stephenanie OH MY GOD you claim…" How could he make such a mistake though? he doesnt believe in god yet said this ahahahahah

Brenda Rua says:

Oh my. She is such an embarrassment that I would suspect a false flag operation. But I've met several like her through the years.

The best part is the apostles "came out!"

Dan Johnson says:

7 minutes in she mentioned that her atheist friends wanted her to call in hoping that she'd get pummeled, while not realizing that she had already be thoroughly pummeled.

Jonny B. says:

What the hell? Is this a human or a broken record of smug laughter?

Zirawulf says:

Just a few seconds in and I can tell this one is going to be painful to watch..

Rick Meyer says:

Don't hold her having a Ph.D. against the rest of us who do. Hers is a soft Ph.D. and not a hard one.

Gary Pratt says:

Gets to 10:12 in the video before Matt invokes and blasphemes the name of the very thing he claims doesn't exist !! Why don't you cuss the name of Batman when. your at it Mr Diilahunty?? Also do you ever blaspheme the name of Mohammed,and if not why not?? Not a very credible atheist at all then.

BlueViolet Alien says:

Skip to 6:13

Chill ass turtle says:

that awkward moment when she realizes she's a complete retard but chooses to double down just to get bitch slapped some more…rip

Old Ben says:

@7:00 After listening to Thomason, I too want to know why you only let the ridiculous people call in.

Steve Sand says:

If they were in hiding how did they see him rise…'s "common sense" that the only reason these people were brave was because they saw a person rise the dead….. OBviously!!

Jerome Simmons says:

Ahahahahahahah " maybe they got hungry" AAAhhahahahahaha

Jerome Simmons says:

Hahahahah Stefany is an idiot!!!! hahahahahah

Paul Dugan says:

I agree with the majority of what Matt said, but I would argue that the number of people who believe something does actually carry some weight in science and reason. While the topic of "Are there absolute truths?' is a completely different topic for discussion, we do base a lot of our reason on what the majority of people have observed or at least think they have observed.

Dermot B says:

This lady is insane. No other explanation possible.

Z4RQUON says:

Wasting an opponents time is what apologetics IS FOR! The whole point is to prevent people they disagree with from speaking.
