Atheism Tapes


Director: Richard Denton
Stars: Jonathan Miller

Jonathon Miller is a neurologist and playwright. And he has been an Atheist all his life.

This documentary is a result of interviews Miller did for A Brief History of Disbelief but were edited out. Miller released these interviews in Atheism Tapes.

He conducts these interview in the homes of philosopher Colin McGinn, author Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett,  playwright Arthur Miller, theologian Denys Turner and physicist Steven Weinberg. These discussions are very casual, honest, candid and informative. The thoughts of Atheists, philosophers, scientists, playwrights and theologians in one video.

I came away with some new outlook, not on the existence of God but on ‘his’ as they all called ‘him’ personality if you will.  I learned more about the views of different ‘religions’ I guess you would say how what these men did for a living didn’t dictate their religious beliefs but how their religious beliefs dictated what they did for a living. How as the grew up their education is what changed their religious views not how they grew up. I walked away going hmmmmm and my teenage daughter walked away enlightened.

This in my opinion is what a good documentary does. I give it 5 stars. Excellent.

You can watch it online or Netflix.

  27. Nearly all of the things you point out happens to be astonishingly appropriate and it makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This piece really did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. Nevertheless at this time there is actually one particular issue I am not really too comfortable with and whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the central idea of your position, permit me observe exactly what all the rest of the subscribers have to say.Well done.
