Some time back this guy posed some questions to the people behind WhoIsYourCreator.com. Their answers were unhelpful at best and outright lies at worst. He spent a year and a half in self-paced research, got a good education in evolution while also seeing American Christian organization's bald faced lies on the subject. In the end he left the faith completely. Here is his e-mail conversation with Who Is Your Creator staff. [link]

A rather good debate between Al Sharpton and Christopher Hitchens about the central idea of Hitchen's book "God is not Great". Hitchens bases his arguments around religious belief while Sharpton insists that just means religion is not great but what about the God that wasn't created by man? Really a good debate between two people who respect each other. It runs an hour and a half including the Q&A. It took me a couple of weeks to find the time to watch it, but I was glad I did.
Not my kind of art, but I know of at least one reader who will like it so it makes the list. [link]
2 Kings 2:23-24 - Elisha and the She-Bears
[Elisha] went up from there to Bethel; and while he was going up on the way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” And he turned around, and when he saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. And two she-bears came out of the woods and tore forty-two of the boys.
