"How God Works" Marshall Brain on Atheists Talk #309, April 12, 2015

Marshall Brain is the founder of HowStuffWorks, a popular science and inquiry website that answers questions exploring everything from the applications of well-characterized science to our most innovative, wildest ideas. With his recently published book, How "God" Works, Marshall Brain uses the same logic and critical thought that skyrocketed the popularity of HowStuffWorks to explore the idea of God. From the How "God" Works Amazon page: 

With a compelling sense of curiosity, he breaks down mankind's search for a higher power, tackling such quandaries as: Who is God? What are his attributes? What is God doing and why? How does God interact with humanity? And ultimately, how can humans know with certainty whether God is real or imaginary?

Marshall Brain is the host of the National Geographic Channel's Factory Floor with Marshall Brain TV show, and is known for his essays and other writing. He has appeared as a speaker on many national media programs and is a consultant, teacher and mentor in various learning environments. Please join us this Sunday as we welcome Marshall Brain to Atheists Talk.

"The Ten Ways Heaven Would Be Hell", Valerie Tarico on Atheists Talk #308, March 29, 2015

Believers sacrifice so much of their worldly lives in order to get to Heaven and to avoid Hell.  What if they get there, after forswearing Sex and Drug and Rock and Roll in this mortal life only to find that Heaven is Hell except with angels instead of demons?  Dr. Valerie Tarico has examined the ten ways that popular conceptions of Heaven would, in reality, be Hell and spelled them out in a blog post.  Dr. Tarico is a pyschologist who is a former evangelical and returns to our show this Sunday for a Hellish look at Heaven.

"GMO Revisited!" Anastasia Bodnar and Greg Laden on Atheists Talk #307, March 22, 2015

Genetic Engineering, or Genetic Modification, is a process that creates a shortcut method to crossbreeding and hybridizing crops and livestock for favorable traits. Technologists create genetically modified organisms, or GMO's, by inserting genes into the chromosomes of the target DNA. Sometimes the transplanted gene is from an organism in the same species as the target species, other times the gene is from a different species or it may be the case that an animal's gene is spliced into a plant's gene. In a recent show, Dr. Anastasia Bodnar and Mike Haubrich discussed the difficulties of spreading the news about the science of GMO's due to rancor in the social media.

On this show, Dr. Greg Laden will join us to continue the discussion in a more positive light. We will go through the positive benefits of using genetic engineering to meet the growing demands of an ever larger population with a shrinking land area for raising the food to feed billions of people. We will address the ways in which the technology will adapt our food to help cope with the effects of climate change and help reduce other threats to the environment as well.

"Breath of Wilderness: The Sigurd Olson Story," Kristin Eggerling on Atheists Talk #306, Sunday March 15, 2015

 

 

Sigurd Olson was a conservationist and writer and a driving force in preserving the solitude and quiet peace of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. A native Wisconsinite who moved to Minnesota to teach biology, he faced the displeasure of many around Ely who wanted to have fly-in resorts and roads through the pristine natural wonders in Northern Minnesota. Kristin Eggerling has written a biography of Sig to illustrate for children the importance of fighting to save the quiet places and to instill a love of the natural world around us.

 

Kristin Eggerling is a conservationist and a writer who lives in Northern Minnesota and is going to be in the studio with me as our guest for this show.  I look forward to talking to her about the inspiration of the wilderness and how it gives her breath.
