So the only logical action to take is to "rearrange" everything with a wrench. Yeah...

This is merely an appeal to emotion. The way I see it, we are all made of something one way or the other, be it matter or some kind of "spiritual essence". We came into existence by means of creation, either by a supernatural creator or by naturalistic means. The fact that we are composed of something doesn't take away from our worth. "The whole is greater than the sum if its parts." - Aristotle

It merely appeals to our intuition that it is not possible that mere matter can produce thought, but what reasoning is behind it? Neurology explains what chemicals and regions of the brain control emotions, and this should be quite undeniable given that we have medications available that can predictably alter/control/inhibit these emotional states. The notion of consciousness, or self-awareness, is not fully understood, but it becomes more so all the time. (http://about-brains.com...)

This is also a strawman argument of what atheists believe. I don't know of anyone who would find that inducing pain and bringing harm to oneself or others doesn't matter. Certainly, I would assume that the majority of atheists would agree that it doesn't matter in an overall objective sense, but that does not nullify the validity of our subjective sense of values. We are human, and it is human nature to value the lives of those around us.

That is just incredibly stupid Islamic propaganda. A chocolate bunny? LOL.
Marrying a 6 year old and waiting until she reaches puberty and maturity before having consensual sex is better than walking up to
a stranger in a bar and proceeding to have relations with no valid proof of the intent of the person. Muhammad wins. ~ Fatihah

Atheist logic: chocolate bunnies are for consumption. A crescent wrench is a poor tool to help in this endeavor.

Atheist logic: the claim "God exists" is unsubstantiated. Therefore, belief in God is unwarranted.

Atheist logic: atheism =/= materialism. This video is a strawman.
The moment you declare a set of ideas to be immune from criticism, satire, derision, or contempt, freedom of thought becomes impossible. - Salman Rushdie

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. - Bertrand Russell
