Hilariously poignant Australian atheist with a well-known style of using MS Paint in creative ways to illustrate deep philosophical absurdities in religious thinking.
Brilliantly articulated conceptual videos about the problems with religious thinking and the value of scientific thinking.
Another conceptual and highly academic video creator, with a style and excellent production quality similar to QualiaSoup.
Our own Chris Redford’s videos, which are currently centered around a detailed documentation of my own gradual and emotional deconversion process, from tongues-speaking Pentecostal to passionate Secular Humanist:
This is the archive of episodes of the Atheist Experience, a great show run by the Atheist Community of Austen (ACA) in Austen, TX.
The Fighting Atheist and his wife make videos discussing their personal experiences and views on things like letting go of faith, questioning religion, and other topics
Theoretical Bullshit is a very entertaining and very charismatic atheist. I haven’t seen many of his videos (just found him recently), but from what I’ve seen so far, I’ve enjoyed it.
Ah, Thunderf00t, a man who has developed quite a reputation on Youtube for his “Why Do People Laugh at Creationists” videos (where he debunks Creationist claims from people like Kent Hovind, Kirk Cameron, Ray Comfort, Ben Stein, and others) as well as his debate with Ray Comfort and his ever-present proclamation of the wonders to which science has led us.

SOMA Library has more than 70 books available!
is an atheist webcomic written by a member of the ACA (see above) that updates monthly. Written in the same “epic adventure” style of either of those authors, the philosophy in the books is VERY atheistic in nature. This series is literally about a war against religion. The characters in the book kill god, there is a pair of gay angels, I mean this series just isn’t subtle at all.
The name of the series is “His Dark Materials” and the author is Philip Pullman. The first one was made into a really shitty movie, and I’d advise you against watching it.

2, The Ranting Gryphon
