Nicely done. Heard YouTube had this video on their front page for weeks and weeks. Over a quarter million hits and counting.
It's nice to be in such good company. Enjoy....

Wonderful! I particularly liked the statistics. Finally some really effective propaganda media! And I mean that in the generic, not disparaging sense. This video is very inspiration. It really choked me up. We, too, have heroes, and very few of us are criminals.

I was gonna call BS on Charles Schulz being an atheist until I read his Wikipedia entry and especially footnote 2.

Well, then again, are all secular humanists atheists?

Evidently, I rock!
Why not question something for a change?

If one uses a broad definition of "atheist" to include agnostics (because technically they do not have a belief in gods) then I think all secular humanists could be considered atheists. The film here does use that broad definition of atheist. The atheist in me likes using that broad definition. But another side of me also wants to respect what labels people insist on using for themselves, and plenty of agnostics and other types of freethinkers would adamently refuse to be labeled "atheist".
