"Foundation Beyond Belief Teams" Noelle George and Rebecca Vitsum on Atheists Talk #346, February 7, 2016

The mission of Foundation Beyond Belief is "To demonstrate humanism at its best by supporting efforts to improve this world and this life, and to challenge humanists to embody the highest principles of humanism, including mutual care and responsibility." FBB offers effective and compassionate volunteering and charitable giving opportunities to non-theists. 

Two of the ways that FBB lives its mission is through the coordination of two networks, the Beyond Belief Network and the Humanist Disaster Recovery Teams. The BBN is a collective of over 110 US and international freethought organizations.  BBN staff assist member teams with ideas and tips for service, planning events, and helps individuals looking for opportunities in their area to connect with member organizations.  The HDR Teams coordinate humanist disaster recovery and provide non-theists an avenue to assist impacted communities when disaster strikes.

Join us this Sunday as Scott Lohman and Eric Jayne interview Noelle George, executive director of Foundation Beyond Belief, and Rebecca Vitsum, HDR Team Development Coordinator, about the work that FBB is doing

"Move Upstream" Karen Shragg on Atheists Talk #345, Sunday January 29, 2016

In her book Move Upstream: A Call to Solve Overpopulation Karen Shragg challenges us to consider overpopulation and it's effects on our world. From the book description:

When it comes to our use of natural resources, we are taught to consider issues related to consumption such as energy efficiency and recycling. However, the number of people - and how fast that number is growing - is a more important factor. More people consume more resources, need more services, produce more waste, and create more world conflict as resources diminish.

Working on downstream issues, such as saving the environment, feeding the hungry, and ending homelessness, is noble but ineffective and inefficient without also working to solve the primary cause of these and other important issues. In Move Upstream: A Call to Solve Overpopulation, Karen Shragg challenges social and environmental activists to stop working downstream and take the problem of overpopulation seriously. She also provides compassionate ideas to solve the problem.

Karen Shragg is a naturalist, writer and overpopulation activist. She joined the advisory board of World Population Balance in 2004, and regularly delivers lectures on overpopulation to local, state and national groups. Karen holds an Ed.D. from the University of St. Thomas in critical pedagogy and is director of the Wood Lake Nature Center in Minnesota. Her other books include, The Wolf Within, Grieving Outside the Box, the Nature's Yucky! children's series with Lee Ann Landstrom, and Lucy's Hero: Remembering Paul Wellstone.

Join us this Sunday morning as Eric Jayne interviews Karen Shragg about Move Upstream: A Call to Solve Overpopulation.

Born and raised in California, Chris Shelton grew up in Scientology and spent 25 years actively working for it at its highest levels. Having escaped in 2013, he has been an outspoken critic and anti-cult advocate ever since.

This critical analysis covers the key aspects of its beliefs, practices and structure from the bottom to the top, including not just the confidential Xenu story but details all of the upper level scriptures.
