This video is part of a series in which Whaddo You Meme??, Mike Winger, and Cameron Bertuzzi respond to the viral video “20 short arguments against the existence of God” by the popular Youtube channel, “The Atheist Voice”.

This video deals with argument #18: “If you tried to explain your religious mythology to someone who never heard it before you would sound crazy. Seriously, try explaining communion wafers to someone who’s never heard of Catholicism.” In this video we talk about religion and it sounding crazy to those who do not share the same beliefs. We discuss how any beliefs, whether about religion or not, will sound crazy if you don’t share the same background information.

this one i'ma play this to watch Mongo I hadn't click the link down below you ready let's go welcome to the 18th devastating argument against the existence of God I reckon that this one will make scholars everywhere take note so let's hear it if you try to explain your religious mythology to someone who had never heard it before you would sound crazy seriously try explaining communion wafers to someone who's never heard of Catholicism I see so what's wrong with this argument well to start the argument seems to entirely depend on the faulty assumption that is actually possible for me to care an insignificant degree less if people think I'm crazy or not I mean have you seen my videos but to respond to the claim so what if people think that my believed sound crazy all beliefs sound crazy if you're not started from the same set of background knowledge for example people who claim that Jesus never existed some absolutely crazy – virtually everyone who understands or has the slightest clue of how ancient history works imagine talking to people who lived thousands of years ago and trying to explain to them that the earth is spinning at about a thousand miles per hour and it's actually going at about 67,000 miles per hour around the Sun you would sound absolutely crazy and that's just because they don't have the same background knowledge that you and I might have but if that's not a crazy what exactly does that prove could that prove that all of our scientific reasons for holding those beliefs are false well if not then we know that what's true is true and that doesn't depend on whether or not somebody thinks that it sounds crazy or not so background knowledge and background information is critical so if the background information that's shared is that God doesn't exist and of course somebody couldn't walk on water turn water into wine but if God does exist then obviously it's possible that miracles can and do happen so the whole clicks of those 850 like the laugh and mock miracles as if like religious people believe these things happen by natural causes and by natural means that only shows that they're really bad listeners but if it's even possible that God does exist then miracles are at least possible so what do we do with this argument well I think the bottom line is this remember this guy's claim was supposed to be an argument against the existence of God but this could only be an argument against the existence of God if it's true that if something sounds crazy to someone else that makes it false but your views are gonna sound crazy to someone else so obviously you can't claim that something is not true just because it might sound crazy to you maybe the next objections a bit more of an argument some people claim that if God didn't exist the world would lick the exact same way that it does right now there's not a good argument or not let's see if my homeboy mike winger can handle this one if you're not already in the playlist click right here to find out

  1. Lol for most of history, to be an Athiest was to be the crazy one. Most people alive throughout history believed in some sort of God or gods… or spirit or something. Trying to tell someone back then that no god exists would sound like nonsense. I bet he doesn't invalidate his own beliefs because of that, however.

  2. Man came from apes, apes came from fish, fish came from single-celled organisms, which came from ROCKS… which came from nothing…. gotta love things that sound crazy. 😉

  3. Great video Jon!

    To add my voice via sarcasm:

    Y'know, back in the day, the scientific consensus was the geocentric model. Y'know, "I don't feel like we're moving, so the sun and moon and everything else is moving around us!"

    Galileo sounded crazy to them.
    So, I guess, the geocentric model is true, if we're to take this argument seriously.
    Or, at least, it was true – it no longer sounds crazy, so now the geocentric model is false!

    Now I get it! If I just sound rational I'm good to go! Who cares about facts?

  4. To understand what God actually means at a scientifically perspective based on human knowledge:

    Set of Forces:

    1. Not Physical

    2. Act on the physical

    3. Created the physical from nothing

    4. Predates the universe.

    What a "coincidence", thats how the bible describes GOD.

    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

  5. Wow, what a reach. Has the friendly atheist studied theoretical physics? There are ideas and notions being seriously studied that sound almost sci-fi. Heck, every great inventor sounded crazy to someone at some time. Good thing they didn’t care what others thought as well.

  6. There is but one God. No trinity. ONE absolute God. The God that Abraham worshipped, for Abraham did not say trinity and Abraham was not one to associate partners with his lord.

    Say: "We believe in God, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them, and to God do we bow our will (in Islam)." (Quran 3:84)

  7. I agree that this seems like an awful argument; things that sound crazy can be true.

    A stronger restatement might be "Imagine yourself, but without religous beliefs and explain to yourself; you would think you sound crazy."

    …actually, I think that might be even worse…

    However: Most becoming atheist stories I've heard are "I tried to explain religion to myself, but it just made no sense; so I became an atheist." Just another restatement, only this is to someone who already believes.

    So ironically while it sounds like an awful argument, it might actually be the most effective one. Anecdotally at least.

  8. Wait, Christianity sound crazier than a magic lighting bolt that hit a magic rock, with a magic pile of sludge. That created you great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, grand Apes???!…

  9. Hey I'm a atheist and I think the guy just said a stupid comment dosent mean everything atheists say is stupid also chi exists and many things that will be interpreted as miricals can be done with chi

  10. Is this sound crazy?

    Conquistador: Dude really??? human sacrificial?
    Aztec priest: Blood for our god and goddess!!!! Our god and goddess sacrificed themselve to save us and we must pay them back…
    Conquistador:Jesus died for you….never mind….wait for our missionary arrival….

  11. Besides the fact that you wouldn't have a universe you wouldn't have laws of logic laws of physics justification for induction of science justification for Morality you wouldn't be able to escape the knowledge infinite regress you would have an epistemological and methodology problem.

  12. Of all the "arguments" being presented here, this must be one of the most ludicrous. If I go to a remote island and tell the locals about electric locomotives, they might think I'm crazy. So that's evidence that trains don't exist?

  13. Hello. I am a subscriber and enjoy your content. In reference to what you said at the 1:03 minute mark, I just wanted to say that I do not accept that the Earth is a globe nor that it spins because there is simply no real evidence for those dogmatical claims. The so-called evidence can be shown to be false.

    I recommend looking into the flat earth with an open mind and reconsider your handed-down beliefs because there is evidence scientifically and biblically for the Earth actually being flat and motionless.

  14. "Religious Mythology…" Loaded and subjective opinion right from the start This public defender for Atheism is a joke! 😂👍🎯

    Welcome to the Wacky World of Atheistic Ideology! 🤡🤡🤡

  15. So basically, his general idea is:
    "Trying to explain your idea to someone who has never heard of it before, will think you are crazy."
    So I guess we should likewise trash all the theories of quantum physics and the 'crazy', 'weird' and 'counterintuitive' ideas of quantum phenomenon such as entanglement, quantum tunneling and quantum superposition. After all, they sounded reeeeeeally crazy to Albert Einstein and to some classical, Newtonian deterministic minded physicists.. and there's the problem. Maybe it sounds crazy, but just because it sounds crazy doesn't mean it is false.

  16. I think when you guys resort to tacking on the "therefor a god doesn't exist", you've sort of took the lazy way out, and you've made it quite difficult on yourself to now turn around and start arguing for the existence of a god. I'm not saying you have to use the failure of one explanation to make arguments for gods existence, but I think it's a bit of a hypocrisy to criticize the very thing you can't demonstrate the positive form of in your own personal arguments. The outsider test for faith is an argument against believing in a specific god, and it's pretty much identical to the problem of religious pluralism. It's not an argument for therefor a god doesn't exist, the conclusion is therefor how can one specific god claim be true, when so many people are claiming different gods, some of which directly contradicting the existence of others? Either one is right, or none of them are, they can't all be right.
