I'm an atheist, and I was recently invited to host an episode of "The Point," presented by "The Young Turks."

I invited an interesting panel of thinkers to join me (some from the scientific community): Skeptic magazine publisher Michael Shermer, theoretical physicist Sean Carroll, and author Edward Falzon. We chose to present an atheist-only panel to avoid the inevitable debate of whether or not god exists. Instead, we wanted to bring atheistic thought out of the shadows and discuss our own perspectives on religion, politics, science, and morality.

Check out this special episode in the video below, and don't forget to leave your thoughts in the comments section. Come on, talk nerdy to me!
