The Amazing Atheist is the YouTube handle of Terroja Kincaid, a vlogger who produces monologue videos expressing his opinions on controversial topics. Initially, he spoke mostly about atheism and anti-theism, but later branched out to cover a wider variety of political and social issues.

Online History

On November 20th, 2006, TheAmazingAtheist[1] released his first video titled "Rant #1," in which he discussed his views on various world religions and atheism (shown below). Many people criticized the video for Kincaid's use of ethnic slurs, including "towel head" and "nigger."

On January 7th, 2009, the @amazingatheist Twitter[11] feed was created, which received over 26,000 followers within the next four years. On December 27th, 2010, "The Amazing Atheist" Facebook[10] page was created, accumulating over 38,500 likes within the next two years. As of October 30th, 2012, TheAmazingAtheist YouTube channel has over 118 million video views, 320,000 subscribers and 530 video uploads.

On That Guy With Glasses

In 2009, TheAmazingAtheist joined the review team on Doug Walker's website That Guy With The Glasses[2], where he took the alias of TheDistressedWatcher.[3] Among his contributions to the site were Trailer Failure,[4] a show in which he would review numerous movie trailers, and Sour Note[5] , which featured his sarcastic commentaries on music videos. His videos were poorly received by the audience, who created numerous petitions for him to be removed from the site. After being ousted from the site in September of 2011, he posted a video on YouTube stating that he understood why he was no longer part of the site's review team.

Notable Videos


Kincaid has written four books, including In Defense of Evil,[12] Neckbeard Uprising,[16] Scumbag: Musings of a Subhuman[13] and The Final Revelation.[14] Each book contains Kincaid's beliefs on various topics written in a similar style to his YouTube videos.


October 2011: Banana-Gate

In October 2011, a personal video of TheAmazingAtheist was leaked on the internet depicting him performing a sexual act with a banana. The video quickly spread across other internet culture blogs, soon leading 4chan users to mobilize a raid against his Facebook page and website. On October 31st, Kincaid posted a video titled "BananaGate 2011," in which he attempted to explain the context of the banana video (shown below). The video was subsequently reblogged by IGN[6], DailyDot[7] and Escapist Magazine.[8]

February 2012: Rape Joke Controversy

On February 8th, 2012, Kincaid mocked a proclaimed rape survivor on the social news site Reddit and was subsequently attacked by many members of the community. Kincaid reacted by deleting his Reddit account, but several screenshots of his comments were taken prior to their removal (shown below).

On The following day, the Internet news site The Daily Dot[15] published an article titled "The Amazing Atheist Quits Reddit After Rape Comments," reporting that the controversy may have resulted in hundreds of people unsubscribing from Kincaid's YouTube channel. The article also included a screenshot showing Kincaid's apology to the Redditor he had insulted (shown below).

I was angry and I said stupid things, thinking I was making a point. I realize now that the point I was trying to make was totally over-ridden by the crudeness and cruelty with which I expressed myself. For my behavior, I apologize. I realize that you probably will not believe the sincerity of my apology, or will not accept it, but I apologize nonetheless permalink report block user mark unread reply full comments -] to terroja sent 4 minutes ago I'd be more willing to accept your apology if you were willing to post it in a public space, on your tumblr or on your facebook page or as a response to the video you made complaining about us. I do not, at this point forgive you in any way shape or form. If you are truly remorseful I would encourage you to make a public apology not only to me, but to the others that you might have hurt with your graphic descriptions of r---. Your comments were cruel, it's true, but you have a chance to make things a little bit better by pointing out to your fanbase that what you did was unacceptable permalink full comments I don't normally let other people bully me into doing what they want. Sorry, but a private apology is the best I'm willing to do. I have already publicly stated that what I said was wrong permalink report block user mark unread reply full comments

August 2013: Mysterious Takedowns

On August 19th, 2013, TheAmazingAtheist posted an urgent announcement (shown below) via his YouTube channel revealing that at least a dozen of his video commentaries were recently removed without an explanation. Although it still remain unclear as to what exactly prompted the mass removal, TheAmazingAtheist's update instantly sparked a debate between his fans and the critics in the comments section of the video page, garnering more than 127,000 views and 9,200 comments within the first 24 hours.

Later that same day, TheAmazingAtheist posted a screenshot of a YouTube Community Guidelines warning notification he had received on the grounds of "hate speech."

ATTENTION Text comments you posted to YouTube have been identified as containing hate speech, and have been deleted from the site.

I think it's safe to say TJ is about the worst person who ever lived.


I'm a Christian, and while I disagree with them on many things, I have respect for many outspoken atheists, including Penn Jillette, Richard Dawkins, ZJ, Nonstampcollector, heck, even Darkmatter; also, I've disliked many Christian youtubers I've heard of (besides Jefferson Bethke, The5thWatcher, and thepursuitblog, although I don't 100% agree with any of them.)
However, I cannot stand theamazingatheist, and I seriously doubt that would change if I was an atheist.
