Open thread for AETV #874: Russell and John

Coming right up! Also, if you have any unfinished discussion of last week’s episode 873 with Matt and Don, feel free, because it looks like nobody made a thread. 872 was a skipped show because it fell on a fifth Sunday.

Atheist in trouble for renouncing Islam

A couple of weeks ago, we at the Atheist Experience were contacted by several people about a story that many of you are probably familiar with by now, the story of Mubarak Bala. According to news reports, Mubarak is 29 years old, and has been active on Twitter under the handle @MubarakBala for quite a …

Advice for kids coming out to their parents

This is a response to a 16 year old living in Florida¬†with his creationist parents. He’s recently decided that he is a closeted atheist, partly as a result of watching the Bill Nye/Ken Ham debate. He wants to know if/how he should come out to his parents. This is advice we’ve given several times on …

On Sye Ten Bruggencate’s response to Islam and the Outsider Test

Twice during the debate between Matt and Sye, audience members asked Sye a good question that is reminiscent of John Loftus’s “outsider test.” The first questioner comes up at 1:18:30 in the video and asks if Sye agrees with “God’s word” as represented by a passage in the Quran. Sye says no, because the Quran …

The Refining Reason Debate: Matt Dillahunty VS Sye Ten Bruggencate

Thanks to our viewers for linking this from another post. I thought the debate could use its own open discussion thread.

Want to be an excellent skeptic? Learn computer programming

I don’t go into a lot of detail about my work on the show, because it doesn’t necessarily interest everyone. But I do occasionally mention that I’m a software engineer, and work it into my discussions here and there. I had to take a break from the show for a year or so while I …

Why are years based on Jesus? A history lesson

This morning I got an email from a guy named Scott, who asked: Please answer the following: If there is no God/Jesus, how are the years calculated? (ie: it is currently 2014) Thanks! I thought it would be easy to find a concise answer to this, but it turns out I had a bit of …

On maintaining passionate intensity

I want to say something witty and interesting on the subject of confidently presenting your point of view… but I’m not sure I have the confidence in this view, so I’m just going to throw some stream of consciousness at you. It’s no big secret that I think “Faith” in general is a problem. By …
