Egyptian Atheist Summarizes the History of Religion to Show Why We Should Discard It Altogether

The history of religion is full of people trying to explain what they don’t understand — and then clinging to those faulty beliefs despite having access to more knowledge.

In his latest video, Egyptian atheist Sherif Gaber talks about that history, explains why religions ought to be discarded, and argues that we should stop indoctrinating children for that reason. It becomes a little easier to do that, he says, if you’re willing to look at faith from a broader perspective instead of from inside your bubble.

Turn on the subtitles and watch.

Gaber, for those who don’t know, is the young Egyptian who was arrested in 2013 for starting a Facebook group that included posts about his own deconversion out of Islam. (The police “investigation,” if you want to call it that, was a complete joke.)

After he was given a one-year prison sentence for his “crimes,” Gaber was released on bail… and promptly ran away to an undisclosed location where he’s making YouTube videos to this day.
