"Christian Mythology for Kids" Chrystine Trooien on Atheists Talk #362, June 26, 2016

"If you want your children to be brilliant, tell them fairy tales. If you want them to be even more billiant, tell them even more fairy tales." - Albert Einstein

 

Thus begins Christian Mythology for Kids - A Secular Family's Guide to Modern Christianity. This children's book, written by Chrystine Trooien and illustrated by Christopher Zakrzewski, is a collection of some of the most well-known stories from the Christian Bible and doctrine, stories and myths told without the dogma and with secular introductions and footnotes. The book is written for children of all ages, and also reaches out to adults from various religious and non-religious backgrounds. 

Join us this Sunday as we speak with the author of Christian Mythology for Kids, Chrystine Trooien, about her work on the book, as well as her secular activism and her fundamentalist Catholic upbringing.

"Activist Humanism", James Croft on Atheists Talk #361, June 12, 2016

At its inception, Humanism was a recognition that humanity needed to save and better itself with no help from any gods on high. It was an activist philosophy, teaching that we all have responsibilities to help humanity thrive. Over time, however, and following the trend of U.S. politics as a whole, the Humanist movement lost much of that activist bent. To the extent organized Humanism has engaged in activism over the last decade or so, it has largely focused on church-state separation, leaving little to differentiate it from organized atheism.

Recently, however, this has started to change. Humanist groups are rediscovering and embracing their activist roots, from the American Humanist Association's focus on social justice to individual groups and congregations taking up causes important in their broader community. James Croft of the Ethical Society of St. Louis leads one of these groups. He's also studied the history of the Humanist movement, and he joins us this Sunday to talk about Humanism's activist past and its future.

"The Way of the Heathen" Greta Christina on Atheists Talk #360, June 5, 2016

Once we've arrived at "non-believer" - where do we go? How we perceive the world and decide to live our lives may change when we leave our beliefs in the supernatural. And for those who never believed in gods, do we approach the world differently than our believer friends, family and neighbors? Greta Christina has recently (yesterday!) released her newest book, The Way of the Heathen: Practicing Atheism in Everyday Life. From Amazon: 

So you're an atheist. Now what? The way we deal with life — with love and sex, pleasure and death, reality and making stuff up —can change dramatically when we stop believing in gods, souls, and afterlives. When we leave religion — or if we never had it in the first place—where do we go? With her unique blend of compassion and humor, thoughtfulness and snark, Greta Christina most emphatically does not propose a single path to a good atheist life. She offers questions to think about, ideas that may be useful, and encouragement to choose your own way. She addresses complex issues in an accessible, down-to-earth style, including: Why we're here, Sexual transcendence, How humanism helps with depression — except when it doesn’t, Stealing stuff from religion, and much more. Aimed at new and not-so-new atheists, questioning and curious believers, Christina shines a warm, fresh light on the only life we have.

We hope that you will join us this Sunday for our conversation with Greta Christina.

"Legal Landscape Roundup", Amanda Knief on Atheists Talk #359, May 22, 2016

Bathroom bills and secular invocations and abortion restrictions. Oh, my!

As we come into a presidential election that will determine the direction of the U.S. Supreme Court, it seems like everyone is engaging in last-ditch attempts to enshrine discrimination in the law. American Atheists National Legal and Public Policy Director, Amanda Knief, joins Stephanie Zvan this Sunday to catch us up on what's happening around the country and what we can do about it. We'll also get updates on legal initiatives American Atheists has been working on.
