"Intentional Community Building" Kevin Jagoe on Atheists Talk #316, June 7th 2015

Education, community building and leadership development are areas of interest to many of us involved in the secular, freethought and atheist movements. Kevin Jagoe is a Humanist Celebrant, a member of the LGBTQ Humanist Council, an instructor for the Humanist Institute and a Youth Director for the First Unitarian Society. Kevin has also recently begun Seminary to become a Unitarian Universalist minister. 
 
Join us this Sunday as we speak with Kevin about how he fits all of these identities together into what is a fairly traditional model for congregational leadership development, and how his work contributes to the advancement of rights and representation of nonbelievers within our different communities and in our larger society.

"Skeptical Approach to Guns," Art Kallenbach on Atheists Talk #315, May 31, 2015

In the United States guns are a difficult topic to engage in a dispassionate argument over rights versus public safety.  Emotions run high because of the number of deaths due to gunfire balanced against the defense of the Second Amendment to the Constitution.  Can atheists and skeptics find a way to talk about this and figure out how the country can find an acceptable solution that both respects rights and protects public safety?  We may not do it all in an hour, but we hope to have a civil conversation.  Art Kallenbach is a member of the Minnesota Atheists Board of Directors, and has been collecting guns since he was 11 years old.  He is a member of both the NRA and the Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee and is licensed to carry a concealed weapon in both Minnesota and Utah.  Plus he is a lot of fun to play pool with.  This is going to be less of a debate than a question and answer session, but we do hope to field calls and emails on this sensitive topic.  Mike Haubrich is not an expert, neither does Art claim to be.  That being said, we have opinions.

"A Pod of Podcasts," Local Podcasters on Atheists Talk #314, May 17, 2014

"Atheists Talk" is not the only podcast in the Twin Cities for atheist and skeptics.  On this show, we will do a bit of cross-promotion.  Joining us live and in the studio are podcasters who have their own shows; "Geeks Without God," "Positively Godless," "A Minnesota Trans Atheist," and "Dimland Radio."  We will find out what they say and do in their podcasts and give our listeners some new audio resources for fun, science, atheism, music and skepticality.

"What are Morality and Ethics?" Dan Fincke on Atheists Talk #313, May 10, 2015

In denigrating atheists, theists will often claim that we have no basis for morals nor a grounding for ethics.  We don't have a book, we don't have a source, we don't have commandments that tell us, as atheists, how to be good.  Engaging the issue, atheists often make the mistake of listing all the good things that we do as citizens and generally altruistic human beings and rightly we are proud of our efforts.  But, we aren't necessarily more moral or ethical than anyone else and so, if we take credit for the good things we do we have skipped a crucial step in argumentation:  we haven't defined our terms.  When I have asked Christians to define ethics and morals based on the actions we take and contemplate in our daily lives, I discover that it really comes down to their belief that they are "saved," and we are not. 

Dr. Dan Fincke is a professor of Philosophy and has written several articles discussing the issues of ethics and morality and is going to return to Atheists Talk to explain Empowerment Ethics and how we can use objective, non-religious means to develop ethics and morals.
