There are widely shared very negative stereotypes about Somalis across Africa, Sweden and the Middle East- and this Hirshi Ali woman who was an illegal immigrant to Holland and than got into the United States by gaining powerful sponsers through ranting about how bad Muslims are and has a track record a deep dishonesty has lived up to many of them. It appears now she is claiming to be a Christian because her previous "New Atheism" she has found less comforting as she has gotten older and she thinks now that Christianity is neccessary to make Western Europeans and North Americans fight Muslims. The below video by an atheist I found enlightening on this issue (he does not take her "conversion" seriously for very legitimate reasons).

However I do this farce does raise several questions.

I don't like Somalians but I make an exception for Hirsi.

So take it @Zipporah's Flint that you broadly agree with the atheists (Ayaan Hirsi Ali ain't no Christian, bruv)?

She might be some type of Theist now but she is not a Christian.

I really do not like "Social Utility" arguments for Christianity as they clearly are not in line at all with the New Testament.

She is a proven serial liar and a scamming illegal immigrant- or at least was that in her time in Holland, people connected to the Zionist movement got her a Green Card though legally for the United States.
She has rubbished your beloved death cult and driven Muzzies mad as a result.

She's a great woman as far as I'm concerned.

What do you think of CosmicSkeptic, who I think goes by his real name now (Alex O'Connor)?

I know that you posted a video of him with Shapiro recently.

On a non-religious note, he interviewed Hitchens who stormed out of interview -

If you want to go straight to the (20 minute 😆) storm out press play below -

He sometimes shows up on my feed and I will look at the stuff he is putting out if it interests and I have time which is not that often. I am find him rather non-descript.

I liked Peter Hitchens a lot until recently though now my views on him have changed significantly.

You're stuck with him now :)

The first time I ever saw a video of him was when, what was his username, Vengeful Glutton?, posted a video of his at me.

I used to get into it a bit with VG in the Anti-Atheist Wars on Pish. I can't really recall the video but I remember watching it and thinking.. this doesn't really help your argument, Vengy :)

Of course, he (O'Connor) is an atheist, an atheist with a degree in theology (my understanding he did as an atheist), somewhat unusual.

He's a terrible interrupter, that was never going to look good with someone like O'Connor.

I remember Hitchens used to do segments with 'right-wing' radio slaphead Mike Graham, also a terrible interrupter (albeit possessing a good few less IQ points than Hitchens) during the Coof craze, and that was a mess. I think the producers had to eventually tell slaphead Graham to shut up more and let Hitchens speak (obviously Coof was quite political).

I am no great fan of Peter Hitchens ~ ~ But I watched some of the beginning of that ( a while back ) and Alex O'Connor was being a bit of an Ass-Hole / Gob-Shite / Toe-Rag / Dumbo in the bit I watched.

And ~ I was going in sorta expecting Peter Hitchens. to not come out too well if I am honest !

I think he said that he lost his Religious beliefs either during or after doing his Theology degree.

You would be surprised at the amount of atheists who have Theology degrees- the idea being that in order to have a degree of bourgeois respectability or for certain job interviews you really need a degree, but it does not really matter what degree, and Theology would be "interesting", "fun", etc.

The guy who does the "Jolly Heretic" is another example I think of an atheist with a Theology degree.
