"Wonderful Without Religion" Mary Morse on Atheists Talk #369, August

Our guest this weekend on Atheists Talk is Mary Morse, author of the new book "Wonderful Without Religion." From the book description: 

Reason is on the rise. The world of atheists, agnostics, humanists, and others is growing fast. With optimism and insight, Wonderful Without Religion removes the stigma from secularism and portrays a heavenly future, inspired by logic and rich with family, friends, meaning, and morality. Discover sensational strategies you can use to break out of the faith closet, raise happy and healthy nonreligious kids, and create meaningful celebrations to mark life’s important events. Learn how modern nonbelievers manifest morality, build supportive communities, and lead the way to peaceful societies.

Mary Morse is an author with interests in religion and it's alternatives, social equity, climate change and the environment, education, urbanism, the future and other small topics. Join us this Sunday to learn more about Mary Morse and how her life is wonderful without religion.

"Young, Sick and Invisible" Ania Bula on Atheists Talk #368, August 14, 2016

Join us this Sunday for our discussion with Ania Bula, author of the recently published book, Young, Sick and Invisible. From the book summary: 

Drawing on her own deeply personal experiences, Ania Bula explores what it is like to live with unseen chronic disabilities. She paints a vibrant picture of what it is like to be diagnosed with two life-long debilitating conditions as a young adult and relates the challenges and frustrations of dealing with predatory alternative medicine practitioners, arrogant doctors, indifferent bureaucracies, and well-meaning friends and family who always seem to say either the wrong thing—or nothing at all. As she discovered, suddenly everyone's aunt is a health expert and everyone's fad diet a cure. Making matters worse, her physical torment quickly translated into mental stresses. Relationships became strained, while others, including all-important romantic ones, never had a chance to start at all. Wading through a constant stream of ignorance and lies, in a desperate attempt to find peace, to stop the pain, and to return to a more normal life, she submits to being stuffed with powders and magic potions, poked and prodded, and even “faith healed.” With honesty and humor, she shares her journey of pain, suffering, and, ultimately, coping, both to help others gain some understanding about what it is like to live with chronic illness—and to help those who might similarly suffer feel less alone, so that they too might start living again.

Ania is known in atheist, skeptic and disability communities for her writings at Alyssa and Ania 'Splain You a Thing and Skeptibility. Ania is also known for her public speaking and her art. We hope you can join us for the interview this Sunday morning.

"Once You Had Hands" Tasha Golden on Atheists Talk #367 August 7, 2016

In many major religious women find themselves at a disadvantage to their male counterparts. Religion has been used to silence, supress and justify inequity and violence against women.

Tasha Golden's collection of poetry "Once You Had Hands" gives voice to the silence surrounding domestic violence and women's subservience in the name of religion. Tasha Golden grew up in Tennessee in a conservative Christian culture. Her experiences flow across the pages, leaving sadness, anger, and a sense of desperation in their wake. She questions how a supposedly loving, caring, omniscient God could allow the misery and tragedies that she observes.

Once You Had Hands has been nominated as a finalist for the Ohioana Book Award in Poetry. Join us this Sunday for our discussion with Tasha Golden.

"Religion in the 2016 Presidential Race" on Atheists Talk #366, July 31, 2016

One side, we have a candidate whose personal faith has strongly affected her politics over the years, who is largely being embraced by religious pluralists. On the other side, we have a candidate whose religiosity is an open question, who is being embraced by theocrats. Then we vice presidential candidates with very similar religious convictions on some issues, whose approach to legislation on those issues is distinctly at odds. And then there's the DNC official who wanted to make a big deal about Sanders supposedly being a nonbeliever.

It's a strange election year, viewed through the lens of religion. This Sunday, David Pacheco and Stephanie Zvan get together to talk highlights, lowlights, and what atheists should be paying attention to this election season.
