But we're not sure
Who's asking?
I don't address religion because of God; I address it because of the people who believe in God. I don't want them to believe in a fantasy. I want them to believe what is true. If most of the world believed in Harry Potter and based life decisions — that affect everyone — on that belief, then I'd spend my time addressing Harry Potter. Get this straight: I don't know if a god exists, but I do KNOW the Abrahamic God doesn't exist, for He is an illogical concept, rife with contradiction — a square circle of loving wrath, known to have gone through an evolution as He was compiled by the ancients throughout history.
—Channel description[1]

DarkMatter2525(link) (and his alternate non-cartoon channel, DarkAntics(link)) is a popular atheist YouTuber who makes animations, mainly against fundamentalist religious views. He has another channel at which has very good videos debunking fallacious theist claims.

The playlist "Deleted DarkMatter2525 Videos" at DarkMatterArchive has most of his deleted works.[3][4]

[edit] Politics

DarkMatter2525 has opposed the Tea Party[5] and supported gay marriage.[6]

DarkMatter2525 has criticized feminism, comparing feminists to radical Muslims.[7] He also believes that activism is being perverted by SJWs, though he admits that the term has been overused.[8]

He's also criticized people who don't criticize Islam for being violent, writing, "Why do you believe a white guy who says he kills because of racist beliefs, but not a Muslim who says he kills because of religious beliefs?"[9] and "Violence has nothing to do with religion? Okay. When was the last time you complained about Buddhaphobia?"[10] Here, he fails to note the (admittedly often blurry) difference between Islamism and Islam.

DarkMatter2525 has recently used not as bad as arguments to state that the world is getting better, not worse, that activism is counterproductive because it consists only of complaining, and people don't know how good they have it, relying heavily on first world problems to make his point.[11]
