Talk Heathen 05.12 03-21-2021 with Vi La Bianca and Viced Rhino
Let’s get to calls! Jason from Pennsylvania would like to talk about how fossils are created, how they are found on mountaintops, and how they could prove a global flood. “But why couldn’t these animals just swim up to the mountains and be fossilized up there?” Sigh.
Chelsea in North Carolina is up next, she is trying to convince family members about a specific relative who is being toxic towards them. This person isn't listening nor respecting them and is seeking advice in how to approach this especially at family gatherings.
Marcus in Illinois is calling about free will and the difference between it and determinism. He is very confused and lost about a previous conversation about it.
Cameron in Minnesota is asking about a coworker’s claim about there being a lot of science within the Quran. He is looking for help on how to counter these claims since he hasn’t much experience with Islam compared to Christianity.
CJ in California is wondering about micro and macro evolution and how to approach a creationist with it. "Micro vs. Macroevolution" = "I believe in inches but I don't believe in feet" Thanks Vern!
Nick in Tennessee is calling about how they can be more active and supportive of the FFRF (https://www.ffrf.org) and the steps he could take to help out more.
Up next, Mike in Maryland is calling in about philosophy and religion and how to dismiss God claims through philosophy. This is Vi’s favorite subject and loves to talk about this!
Matt in Georgia would like to talk about how to combat potential questions from his nephew about being an atheist. His nephew is being raised evangelical and Matt is concerned about this.
Our last caller of the episode, Stuart in the UK is calling about using the scientific process to help with delusions in mentally ill folks. He also is encouraging how the scientific method and critical thinking can truly open up pathways to truth.
That’s our show for this week, please continue to be safe in your area, get vaccinated, and continue wearing your mask afterwards. The world is better with you in it. See you next week!
