My personal favorite is Armoured Skeptic. If you include an atheist who doesn't argue against god directly but pokes fun at christian arguments in his various videos, check out CoolHardLogic. Seriously, check these two out. Do you have any personal favorites?

I don't really follow the youtube community much anymore however.

He's pretty good. Have you seen King Crocoduck or AntiCitizenX?

Carneades.org by far.
After that Knownnomore, although I think some of his arguments are a little lacking.
Perhaps it's just me but his terminology seems a little odd.

Other than that I can't think of any worth watching. Most others provide little if any adequate insight into, theistic arguments.
There are some who argue against creationism from a scientific standpoint but that's probably exclusively relevant to Americans.

Easy choice: Edward Current.

Actually if you converted his talks to text, it'd read surprisingly similar to a lot of religious folk here.

Bible Reloaded or bust.

Armoured Skeptic and Steve Shives are both really good and the Drunken Peasants/Amazing Atheist are a guilty pleasure. Hemat Mehta is a better writer than vlogger IMO and Matymer81 isn't too funny but I like his videos nonetheless.

AS is pretty cool. I tend to focus on more science focused Atheists thought:

One of my favorites is AronRa, Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism is probably the best Anti-Creationism video series there is.

Thunderf00t did go a bit crazy, but his "Why do people laugh at Creationists" series has it's moments, although it's fairly easy to pick holes in the logic of some of it. What it does do, however, is really hit home how unbelievably retarded Creationist Apologetics can be.

Call of Dusty is the only youtube atheist that I despise. He makes his videos for views, not for well-founded arguments.

I was just watching AronRa and he is pretty good, but he also likes to poison the well to discredit evangilists. For instance, after mentioning Kent Hovind, he puts a caption that tells the viewer that he is serving time in prison for assualt and battery charges, but a quick wikipedia search disproved that. He was jailed for tax evasion, justifying it by saying everything he owns belogs to god and other nonsensical reasons. He was charged with assualt, but those charges were dropped by the alegged victim.

Oh, absolutely, but rarely do I go to youtube for more than "that variety" of entertainment. I think my subscriptions are barely related to as many worthy pursuits as they are to keeping my brain entertained (granted, low bar to clear) in headphones while the wife sleeps. Night shift blues, and all. I have... 4 subscriptions that are worth while, NurdRage, KingofRandom (I think, can't verify right now), The F word (Gordon Ramsey for cooking), and Airsoftology for my hobby. Everything else is a hodgepodge of music, video game tips, an assorted airsoft in game uploads. Oh, and fencing. The sword kind, not the chain link kind.

Sweet! I was juuuust about to start a fencing debate on the taboo nature of the "flick" for scoring. Resolution being something to the Effect of "The 'Flick' as a method of attack in foil fencing is a sound attack" or verbiage to that idea, and taking Con.

Lol, I would take Pro on that any day. It works, and it still works after they changed the scoring timings. When I went to Paris to watch the WC's about 3 years ago, it was basically back to like it was in 2004.

I used to go to this student competition in Basel, Switxerland where they have built-in pistes and consequently still use the old electronics. The flicking was orgasmic...

Interesting, have you been a creationist before that?

I don't like new atheism all that much. However I watched most of Armored Skeptics' earlier videos.

Yes, actually.

It was based on what I now feel to be a false dichotomy between theism and naturalism, both with the same claim of certainty. I de-converted after realizing two things.

1. We have no reason to believe it is possible to gain knowledge.

2. The position which allows for this concept is atheism.

Since then, I hardened the position and allowed for Youtube atheists to broaden my horizons. This they did with a highly addictive entertainment value, and allowed for me to grasp the other side of an issue.

I personally do not evaluate my choices in YAs solely on the truth value in what they are saying when deciding if I should watch them. The deciding factor is their ability to facilitate an understanding of a position, and the intrigue they provide for me through humor or intellect.

This is why I proposed the recommendations in a way which allowed for disagreement. They should be tested to see if he personally enjoys them.

Could you please elaborate? I am honestly unfamiliar with the term, "New Atheism."
