"Nature's God", Matthew Stewart on Atheists Talk #304, March 1, 2015

A couple of centuries of national pride and the gentle glow that history casts on winners have given today’s U.S. citizens a rather staid view of the radicals and revolutionaries who built a country from former colonies. Not only did they wage treasonous war against their king, but many of the crafters of our constitution were religious radicals. There were Quakers and Methodists and Christians who rejected the authority of the Bible.

There were also deists among the people who shaped our government. In his recent book, Nature’s God: The Heretical Origins of the American Republic, philosopher Matthew Stewart tells their story. He traces the strains of deism in Enlightenment thinking and shows how it shaped our country.

"Jen Hancock's Handy Humanism Handbook" on Atheists Talk #303, February 22, 2015

Jen Hancock has worked for several years to make Humanism as accessible as atheism has been made in the last decade. She served as executive director of Humanists of Florida Association for several years, and she's spent her time since then writing books about the philosophy with which she was raised. One of her recent books is Jen Hancock's Handy Humanism Handbook. From the author's statement on the book:

Humanism is one of the most influential and yet most maligned philosophies of all time. Unfortunately, most people don’t know anything about it. To make matters worse, there are a lot of people who are already Humanists and just don’t know it yet because no one has ever taken the time to properly introduce them to the philosophy. 

I intend to change that with this book. Consider yourself introduced.

Scott Lohman will speak to Jen this Sunday about her book.

"Religion's Dirty Dozen", Valerie Tarico on Atheists Talk #302, February 15, 2015

Religion, in addition to lending credence to authoritarianism and social control, trades in ideas. There have been some good ideas to come from religion but then, in fairness, we really need to talk about the bad ideas.  And religion has generated some very bad ideas.  Valerie Tarico, PhD. is a pyschologist and she was at one time an evangelical Christian.  She has examined twelve of the ideas that originated in religion that have created mayhem, death and destruction as well as unnecessary emotional pain. Mike Haubrich will be hosting as well as interviewing Dr. Tarico on today's show.
