Due to the many requests I've received, this is the complete, unedited and un-produced interview footage used for the short-form "Conversation" vignettes posted last month. Some prefer the longer-form format without music and asked to see the whole thing. The shorter, produced clips can be found at the following links:

I think that AronRa is one of the most fascinating personalities on youtube. He comes across as an individual in his style, and his message. People like him are part of the richness of humanity that the internet has given voice, which old media lacked with its singular ratings-for-ad-revenue driven homogeny.

Best part : "*I don't like being lied to.*"
I think most Atheists like myself think the way he does; there was never a turning point. It always seemed like religion (Catholic, for me) was always a tad off, even at a young age. It might just be my imagination, but there was never a "ah-HA!" moment.

You had better love God or god will fuck you up! Christians are gullible fucking idiots
AronRa: "Here's the thing, if what you say is actually true, I would want to know it too. It's not that I have this bias at the outset where you'll never convince me and I'll never convince you. No, that's wrong. You can convince me. And, if it is true, I want you to convince me. And, if it is true, you can convince me AND I will thank you for convincing me." That is the goal!! It's about having an accurate view of reality... whatever it is, no matter what it is.

When Texas meets science, you get Aron Ra, truly one of my heroes.
As annoying as religious people are, as asinine their beliefs, and as immoral their attitude toward life, I am still grateful to be able to witness all of these great minds adverse these idiots. I live in the south. In North Carolina, where religion is woven into the fabric of life without a second thought. Where evolution is a lie, and where Jesus is a house hold name. I can barely stand it at times. Sometimes I feel suffocated. My wife believes there is more to life than this, and was raised christian. Though she is far from fundamental, and is very intelligent. But she still holds onto a belief in the supernatural, almost as if, the wonder and beauty of the universe is nothing special. This also bothers me. Naturally we get into arguments, and most of the time we just tire ourselves out, and come to a mutual understanding. Either way it is still frustrating, because I have 2 kids. And one of us will teach them, that this is it, and my wife will teach them, that she doesn't think this is it. Though I am sure they will grow up free thinkers because regardless of what I described of my wife, she is a free thinker, maybe agnostic, just not a pronounced atheist, and anti theist like me.

Aron is quite an interesting guy
I admire all atheist activists and I'm glad they do what they do.  I'm strongly considering my own you-tube channel devoted to this as well with some arguments I have yet to hear from other atheists.  I really wish they would talk about how religious people need to believe in something.  Children invent imaginary friends because they help them and comfort them.  That does not mean they actually exist. There are millions of people who believe in a god mainly because they can't accept the harsh reality of life without one.  So, in order to sleep at night and feel some peace, they invent a god to believe in who loves them, who will solve their problems if they pray enough, who will listen to them, etc.  That does not mean a god exists.  That's the epic failure of theists.  They so desperately WANT their god to exist, that in their own minds, it does, and to hell with everyone else (literally) that does believe in their imaginary friend.  They simply can't accept the thought of it not existing, because without it, they cannot endure the realities of existence.  Life is harsh, deal with it.  It's time to grow up.
This man's videos had a tremendous influence on my thinking and my life. I have an endless amount of thanks for him.
