I think he's done with us. Apparently, we are far too intellectually below him/

It's so pathetic what these religious extremest do when confronted. Whether creationist or Muslim, they resort to the "you're too mean and stupid for my time!" instead of actually providing a response. And we all know why; they have no response.

From session 2 "One in Three men in Sweeden have had sex with animals."

What does he suggest people should have sex with? Maybe it's Kingdomist of me but I only have sex with animalia.

I've suffered through the first two parts. Not sure I'm going to continue.

Phytoplankton. If you've never had sex with phytoplankton, you don't know what you're missing.

P.S. I don't know what I'm missing either.

Even if that is true, how does that correlate with atheism?

It's a ridiculous assertion. Probably based on the fact that they had not made it a criminal act until a year or two ago. I would think it much more likely to happen in deeply religious places that are sexually repressed. Not to point any fingers.....

Post Re: Dawah Films is Back

I haven't watched part 2 yet.
I am surprised that he didn't bring up the huge number of rapes in Sweden*, when he brought up the animal-sex thing. It would seem lie an obvious (but false) correlation for him to make.



*The informed of us, of course know why it seems like there a lot of rapes in Sweden.

Greetings,

It would be interesting - and critical to his claim(s) - to find out from where he got this "one in three" figure...!?

I have posed that very question in the comments on the video.

Post Re: Dawah Films is Back

I imagine it's a made up figure based on the reality that Sweden didn't have a law against it up until a year or two ago.

EDIT: He says he got the info from the New York Post. Which is a tabloid site. You might inquire if he realizes that. At least he knows how to vet a source.... eh?

Having hunted online, I believe it's this article.

The "one-in-three" figure refers to the proportion of Swedes born outside the country - nothing to do with sex with animals.

The only mention of that is in relation to Danes, of whom 5% are alleged to have had sex with animals.

The fact is, there are no figures for sex with animals in Sweden: in 2006, a hundred suspected cases were reported.

Clearly, he's making it up.

Post Re: Dawah Films is Back

Yes that is the article he cited. From the NY Post which is a tabloid. He admits to getting it incorrect. He said 1 in 3 and the article says 5%. I suspect it's all bogus judging from many of the other articles on their site.

Post Re: Dawah Films is Back

Greetings,

The article was citing the recent book it features, so the "5%" figure for Danes is from that, as well as the "one-in-three" of Swedes born abroad.

Clearly, though, DF misrepresented the facts - whether by accident or intent is unknown.

He's since posted another link with the same data. After some reading and investigating they BOTH link back to a sensationalist book by Michael Booth. Of course how dare we point out he's using terrible sources to make some pretty offensive claims. You know, it's up to us to prove his claims are wrong.
