Lots of calls this week!
Russell and Lynnea take calls on the morality of God and other topics.
Go for it.
Looks like this post is a bit late.
On a side note: Blip.tv apparently canceled a whole bunch of accounts including ours, completely without warning, pursuing an unspecified “new business strategy.” The entire archive has been deleted, we have no login, and a complaint we sent was met with a generic message repeating what I just said without further explanation. We’re working to restore our video archives and come up with a strategy for posting new videos. This may or may not involve YouTube. We’ll keep you posted.
This is Don. I hijacked this post so that I could share some of the links that I used for the show today, in case anyone else wants to follow some of the details.
The show idea came from David Swanson, “Why We Allow the Destruction of our Planet” in The Humanist magazine. Another good article is How the Religious Right is Fueling Climate Change Denial. Another prominent point came from this disturbing Newsweek poll on end-times belief.
Some of the Christian climate crazy is tracked at Right Wing Watch.
John Shimkus is a powerful Congressman who has had some nutty things to say about whether climate change is real.
James Inhofe is pretty sure climate change is a hoax, though he seems to be in the pocket of those with vested interests.
Some ministries have done multimedia presentations calling scientists idolaters and communists.
John Hagee, who peddles end-time snuff porn as part of his ministry is pretty convinced that bad weather is just all part of the plan.
Hey, good news everyone! The Atheist Experience got reviewed in Salon!
Well, okay, it was not the most complimentary review we’ve ever received.
Well, okay, it’s called “I spent a day watching AtheistTV — and it was horrifying”. The review was set up as a general overview of the new Roku channel from American Atheists, but it also devoted a plurality of its copy to describing scenes from our show, and the cover photo was of Matt and Jen.
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.
