Talk Heathen 05.07 02-14-2021 with Eric Murphy and Vi La Bianca
Let’s get to calls! Charismatic Catholic from Texas asks, what is the best evidence for God that we have heard and what is wrong with it. Interesting question, and before you ask, this is NOT Canadian Catholic and this one sounds willing to listen and have a good conversation.
Neil Spirits in Southeast Asia is up next, claiming the spiritual self is a part of the mind and body and it matters to him. Ok, what and where is the soul and where is Eric’s sense of humor? Good question Eric, we don’t know where your sense of humor is! Let us know if you find it! (Kidding, we love you!)
Returning caller Kevin in New York, would like to explain religious circumcision, how it isn’t related to a medical practice, and is only of the heart. All of the what? The passage in the Bible that references circumcision of the heart is a metaphor. Vi asks the all important question, why should we care?
Nick in Tennessee is wondering about anti-theism and atheism. The conversation evolves into being an angry atheist because of theism. Please don’t let your anger shut folks out Nick, because there are those that need your help to see the path out. Caller Quote of the day: “Anger is fine-tuned to inspire an action but it shouldn’t direct or guide the action.”
Lisa in Colorado feels betrayed being raised religious in the Lutheran faith and also feels like she has lost something. God will do anything to promote himself and wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of misery and suffering. She’s at a crossroads and is struggling. We are here for you Lisa!
Ryan in Louisiana would like to find value in religion, but without the supernatural trappings that are associated with most religions. Great query, you should read the Skeptics Annotated Bible and the Jefferson Bible. But ultimately, why is a good question to ask.
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. We love you all with our uncut hearts. See you next week!
