Weekend Tube

Weekend Tube: 08/10/18

Let’s get right to it this week! But before that, I now have a Patreon which can be found here, Godless Iowan Patreon. I also recently opened a merchandise store which can be found here, Godless Iowan Merch! Please consider supporting me in some way, I really appreciate it! Also it’s going to be a shorter list this week as I’m just getting back into the swing of things and I have a cold…

#6 Disappointed Optimist: Atheists Worship The Infinite Typewriter Monkey

This video is great and sad, the content is hilarious, the sadness comes from the fact that DO has his camera broken during the making of the video. Consider helping him out on Patreon and let’s get him a new camera.

#5 Digital Hammurabi: Found in Translation – A Sumerian Love Story

Ok so it takes a lot to get my emotions going, but this is so damn cute. Seriously, check it out and see if you don’t nearly die from sweetness.

#4 Tatted Atheist: Trying To Stay Famous By Bashing Atheists Cute

Honestly still don’t remember this guy, I guess he was from PBS or something…who knows. But the video is hilarious. Great job Tatted!

#3 Professor Godless Stick Engineer???: DelanoTV is Wrong About Plateaus.

Hilarious video from GE that was features on Professor Stick’s channel. There is a follow up on GE’s channel that is just as good so be sure to check that out as well!

#2 Staggerson Jagz: Emit Tells it Like It Is (100%)

A hilarious emit video from Staggerson, seriously it’s hard to describe exactly what these are about but this one is so damn funny! Check it out now!

#1 GonnaGoForIt: Matt Powell. Controversial beliefs, that can’t be backed up. 

Normally I’m not all that interested in videos of this type. Truthfully they tend to frustrate me, but this one did not. Robert and Peter shut Matt Down any time he tries to veer of topic and attempt to get him to answer the simplest of questions, “What made you become a Christian at 11.” Great job to the two of you!

Video of the Week: Genetically Modified Skeptic: I Came Out Atheist and This Happened

GM Skeptic recently fully came out as an atheist and in this video he describes the good, the bad, and the ugly reactions he received from friends and family. Great video my sparkly detective friend!

Weekend Tube: Faithless Forum Edition

Hello Hell-Bound Friends. Tomorrow 1-9pm, if you’re in Dallas, I recommend you check out the Faithless Forum. Tickets are still available, only $20 dollars, and it is going to be a great time. However if you are like me and live in the Butthole of America, you’re not going to be able to make it and so I’m bringing the forum to you with my favorite videos from each of the guests. So let’s get to it.

GM Skeptic: Why You Lose By Being Religious

To be honest, making this list is harder than most because of the excellent videos on each of these channels. However, GM Skeptics was probably the hardest to select just one from. His content is all interesting, profound, and powerful. Check out this video and get hooked on his channel just like I did. Enjoy!

TellTale Atheist: Jehovahs Witnesses Justifying Shunning

Ok so maybe I was wrong because going through TellTale’s catalog was just as hard as going through GM Skeptics. A former Jehovah’s Witness, Telltale has an amazing story to tell and a lot to draw from. His videos flow very well and are each unique and interesting. There really isn’t a bad video to jump into his content. Subscribe to his new Science channel as well!

Godless Engineer: How a Jehovah’s Witness Questioned and Left his Faith

There are videos that Godless Engineer makes that are more entertaining, funnier, and more informative than the above one. However what Godless Engineer does is takes folks like me, and Fenrir in the video above, who are just starting out and gives them a major boost. He is all about building the community and helping small channels succeed. It’s amazing what he does and I think he’d be proud knowing I picked one of these videos on his channel for today’s list. Go subscribe today!

KC’s Corner: Jehovah’s Witness Elders Tell Us How to Stay Clean For Jehovah

KC can also be found on Godless Engineer’s channel and just as much can be said about her contributions to the community as with Godless Engineer. New to making videos of her own she hit the nail on the head with her first video and really set herself apart. She’s honestly one of the nicest people you will ever get the pleasure of meeting and is both brilliant and hilarious.

Anthony Magnabosco: Street Epistemology: Nick

Magnabosco can chat with anyone, he has a natural charm that seems to make folks enjoy talking to him. His street epistemology series teaches the finer points of leading someone towards questioning their own beliefs. Anthony Magnabosco is a modern day Socrates in my opinion, and I think some of the folks he interviews comes away with the same type of mindset as those who spoke with Socrates did in Plato’s stories.

Allie Jackson: How to Approach Hateful Thoughts and acts towards

Allie Jackson(Atheist Republic) is the one on this list today that I am less familiar with but nonetheless what I have seen of her talks and videos have been excellent. This talk discusses how to deal with some of the things that we atheists meet with on a daily basis and some great advice is provided. Check out Atheist Republic’s channel for more of Allie’s content!

Prophet of Zod: What if Everybody Wanted School Prayer

What doesn’t Prophet of Zod do? I mean seriously, he makes great response videos, has awesome interviews, and even has some great animated shorts on his channel. It’s really impossible to narrow him down to a specific style because he really does it all. Zod is an amazing creator and a really good guy, I’ve enjoyed getting to know him recently and can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in the future.

Holy Koolaid: Atheist State of the Union 2018

This is the video that made me a content creator on YouTube. I watched this, looked at Missus Snarky and said it’s time for me to tell the world my story.  9 days later i was on YouTube. So Holy Koolaid holds the distinction of being the voice that “led me out of the darkness” of sorts and since then I have made so many friends and learned so much. I wouldn’t be making videos if it wasn’t for this video and for that I will always be thankful for Holy Koolaid.

Honorable Mention: Suris the Skeptic: My De-conversion from Christianity

Not officially in the line-up but deserving to be on the list today is Suris the Skeptic. A few weeks back I was introduced to Suris by Don Michaud on Twitter. Since then I have grown to call him a friend. He makes awesome videos and is there to help. If you want to know why my audio magically got better, it’s thanks to Suris! He will be roaming around meeting all the people tomorrow. Which is good because I have no doubt that one day soon he will be a headliner at conferences like these.

#SubscribeSaturday: Special Thanks: GE & KC

So this isn’t actually a listed entry but a moment for me to be able to say thank you to a couple of people who have helped me a great deal since coming to YouTube as well as big supporters of my Weekend Tube Series. Godless Engineer and KC.

Both Godless Engineer and KC have supported me, answered questions, and offered advice. I cannot possibly thank them enough for all they have done for me as well as what they do for the community in general.

Godless Engineer spends a lot of time building up other content creators just as the video above. He has featured me in two videos over the last few weeks and I cannot tell him how much I appreciate the opportunity. You are an inspiration to so many of us and I just hope that you know this.

KC has long been the voice in the corner but has recently started her own series of great videos on Godless Engineers channel. They are awesome in every possible way. Funny, intelligent, well paced, and just fun to watch. She’s a truly genuine person and has always been very kind to me.

This man is hilarious. He can make me laugh harder than almost anyone. His videos debunking flat-earthers are some of the best out there and keep you rolling the entire time.

Both KC and Godless Engineer are quick-witted which adds to their ability to turn anything into a comical experience, even the most inane and asinine videos become a joy to watch when GE’s commentary is added and KC’s yells from the corner are heard.

So to you both I tip my hat, and I thank you. I feel so honored to have met you and hope to meet you in person some day. I cannot think of two people who are more caring and concerned with others as these two are. They are absolutely awesome and I cannot wait to see what they have in store for everyone in the future. Go and Subscribe now, you will not be disappointed.
