"El Tequila y la Verdad" Dana Hunter on Atheists Talk #365, July 24, 2016

Dana Hunter is a science blogger at Scientific American and a blogger at The Orbit network. On her Rosetta Stones blog she is known for her writing about Mount St. Helens, her travel blogs about her geological adventures, women in science, and other gneiss schist. At her blog En Tequila es Verdad she writes about atheism, religious extremism, the implicationas and effects of religion on women, and many topics relating to social justice.

Dana joins us this Sunday to discuss her recently published book, Really Terrible Bible Stories - Volume 3: Leviticus. This is (as the name implies) the third in her series of really Terrible Bible Stories. From the Amazon book description: 

In Really Terrible Bible Stories vol. 3, Dana Hunter takes off the rosy religion-tinted glasses and reads the Book of Exodus in plain light. From childhood favorites to pulpit perennials, she explores awful details of these stories that are normally glossed over. With cutting humor (and plenty of cursing), she lays the sordid details bare.

 

This book is not safe for work. It's not suitable for children. It may even get you banned from polite society. But every single really terrible story within comes straight from the Holy Bible.

Join us this Sunday as we discuss God's instructions for BBQs, holy laundry, nutritional dictates, slavery and other instances of horrifying divine micromanagement.

"Ark Encounters of the Odd Kind" Justin Scott on Atheists Talk #364, July 17th 2016

On July 7th of this year one of the most expensive biblical cosplay costumes was opened to the public, the Ark Encounter.  A vision of creationist museum creator Ken Ham, and partially paid using public funds from the state of Kentucky, this religious monument is a breathtaking example of why we need to remain vigilant in our efforts to strengthen the wall of church state separation.

Justin Scott is no stranger to Atheist Talk listeners, he is a public atheist activist with the Eastern Iowa Atheists, and was part of a peaceful counter protest, organized by the Tri-State Freethinkers, against the public funding of this religious building.  Justin is here today to discuss his experiences with other atheist protestors, as well as they pushback they received from evangelical christian groups, upset at the atheist protest.

"Fantasy and Non-Belief" Atheists Talk #363, Sunday July 10, 2016

Is there a connection between those who love fiction and those who embrace some flavor of non-belief (atheism, freethinker, agnostic, skeptic etc.) in the supernatural? This Sunday we'll speak with Tim Wick and Matt Allex, two attendees of one of the largest fan-run science fiction/fantasy/media/pop culture conventions in the United States, CONvergence. We'll discuss their relationships with SF/F, geekdom, performance art and atheism and get some perspectives on the possible overlaps. And we'll share some of our favorite moments from CONvergence!

"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.
