Professor Stephen rants about Facebook memes posted by bigoted christians. Andrew Jennings joins the group to listen to Rachel tell the tail of an infuriating encounter with a creationist and his use of the ill-defined word “kinds”. The Jason and the Prof have a long Chat with Joey about his new book “PR Pope” and all things Catholic.
I really enjoy your podcast and listen to it regularly.
After decades of evangelical brainwashing and once reading the Bible from cover to cover seven times in a two year period, I have become a full blooded atheist. The attached Word document contains some organized talking points that I originally prepared for myself for the frequent discussions I have with various Christians. I thought I would share it with a few people for whatever it is worth…maybe just a couple of quick talking points.
Keep up the great work. You all take care.
Well, I was remiss in that I said that I was going to post the document that was attached in a blog post after the show, and then it slipped my mind. Well, Tim was kind enough to remind me so here it is. Definitely worth a read.
Here is the link (click on it and it will take to another page where you can download the document):
Professor Stephen opens with a fulmination that leads to Aron and our hosts talking about the whitewashing of American history by religious conservatives, and their general anti-education nonsense.
Pastor Duncan Waters sends in a sermon about how America is a christian nation, and his grandson causes it to be much more entertaining than he intended it to be.
In the second of three Snake-Oil Woo Woo segments about creationist’s supposed debunking of radiometric dating, Rachel and Stephen double team the topic, laying down the basics, so that we can get the meat of the subject. And yes…this includes the ONE dating method that everyone knows and thinks is the only one that exists and is used to date everything….carbon dating. Spoiler: Its not!
Does the old testament law take an unethical stance on slavery and rape? My 2nd formal atheist debate was a little overwhelming. Not only was I not prepared to rebut Max’s incessant appeals to other texts which attempt to soften the ideas of rape and slavery, I was probably out informed.
Although I’m very familiar with the KJV Bible, I’m not the chosen one for atheist debates with these squirmy apologists or those presuppositionalists. However, I enjoyed myself and hopefully others will find some value in the prose.
