Ugh. What a visceral reaction. And yet, I feel somewhat of pity for those Christians who see a video like this and then spend time trying to rationalize the violence. What a horrible position to be in psychologically.

Oh wow, an anonymous blogger claiming two PhDs and claiming to be an atheist put KTA, GTA, IP, and DC all on the bad or ugly lists.

He says that he is purely basing this on intellectual merit, but he doesnt explain how he came to his judgements on ANY blogs on ANY of his lists. Why is RS on the good list? Why is Sam Harris' blog on the bad list? Why is DC on the ugly list? He doesnt elaborate.

For a guy claiming two PhDs, and appointing himself, anonymously, as some kind of atheist blogger judge, and claiming to be proficient at evaluating the intellectual merit of blogs, he should know better than to put forth what amounts to unsupported assertions.

Shit man, even my latest issue of Motor Trend has car reviews with REASONS why the cars get the scores they do. One would expect some kind of detail to the analysis.

This guy needs to do something to help his credibility. How convenient that he remains anonymous because of his job. PZ Myers isnt anonymous, for example.

And considering that there are hundreds of atheistic blogs out there, I think its kinda cool that so many of my friends and associates, and even myself, got listed on the guys good/bad/ugly list. What it means for me is that good, bad, or ugly, my blog Kill The Afterlife and our team blog Goosing the Antithesis are getting lots of attention.

And I have a feeling that GtA and IP and KTA and DC etc. will continue to get lots of attention while this anonymous blogger who lists no details in his analysis, nor allows comments, will not.

Im having a hard time believing any of the claims this guy made. He probably is a Christian in disguise trying to badmouth the most successful atheist blogs around. Id love to see him prove me wrong, however.

well to put Loftus on the ugly list he probably read

you gotta admit that this guy is hilarious.

This guy with two PhDs put Discomfiting Christianity in the top 5, then put Loftus in the bottom, while Loftus is the guy who got DC to deconvert in the first place! The DC blogs premise even gives a shout out to Loftus.

Pleeeeaaaasssseeeeeeee. This has to be a hoax. It is too funny to see all the atheist bloggers that I personally know or work with (and who our regular round table of theistic opponents also know) almost exclusively fill up the good bad and ugly lists. There are so many more atheistic circles on the internet out there with all kinds of blogs. This is much more like a personal thing in the way that these lists seem to follow closely along internet work/social click lines.

I need some kind of evidence. Im not taking this guys word for it. Any clown can make a blog anonymously and claim two PhDs from Oxford and Cambridge. He needs to do something to legitimize himself as an authority as well as his listing choices.

I dont accept grand unsupported assertions from anonymous writers. I gave that habit up when I stopped believing in the BIBLE!

Aaron take a breath. The Discomfiting christianity is a joke about how bad Loftus is! Read it...

Yea I just figured that out after posting my last comment. I never visited that blog before until it showed up on the top 5 list of a hoaxer claiming to have two PhDs.

This Good Bad Ugly thing has now officcialy had the BULLSHIT flag called on it.

You know, the images were pretty gruesome and I suppose that's to be expected for the point you're making. But they absolutely pale in comparison to the recorded dreck playing in the background. Really, was it necessary to subject your blog readers to that inexcusably horrid nightmare in sound? I was very nearly driven insane...AAAAAAAHHHHH!!

Francois, you sick bastard! Have you no decency? Have you no heart, man?!

I'll have to listen to Bach for hours to drive the sound-image from my mind!

Perhaps you've adduced a new atheological argument: TAFXM - The Argument From Xian music:

P1) If the Christian God exists, he would permit only the most beautiful music in His name
P2) Petra.
C) God does not exist.

Bill, now THATS a Hell of an argument against God! :D
