Talk Heathen 05.06 01-31-2021 with Vi La Bianca and Dave Warnock
Let’s get to calls! Isaiah from Hawaii would like to talk about how the legends of God are like the telephone game and that the original story has evolved over time. (HA!) Interesting take, but why do we need to attach God to origins?
John in California is up next, he asks about becoming an atheist while his family continues to believe. He explains how his wife is frustrated with his change and says how she feels “catfished” with his newly skeptical life.
David in California is wondering about keeping nostalgic icons and art of when they were religious after deconverting.
Renee in California wants to talk about the spiritual realm and if we as Atheists believe in it. Is it bad to believe in it? She has some interesting “theories” on some things and may be more of a victim of her own religious biases.
Arden in Canada is next up, wanting to talk about nihilism and it’s forms. Some of this philosophy goes over my head, but this is a great conversation.
Jake in Texas is wondering what he can do to help his mom who has seemed to become very brainwashed due to Christian sources and Qanon. Dave recommends cutting off these fringe ideas.
Our last caller, Noel in Michigan is wondering since Genesis is not accurate why doesn’t the entire thing fall apart. Great question!
That’s our show for this week, please continue to be safe in your area, wear your mask. The world is better with you in it. See you next week!
