TSP 28: Secular Bible Study – Exodus Part II (Anthony)

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

If you have ever wondered how an atheist reads The Bible, this episode is for you. Anthony discusses his notes and thoughts that crossed his mind as he read Exodus. This is the second episode of the series Secular Bible Study where Anthony reads through The Bible for the first time as a secularist.

Eventually, all 66 books will be covered. Anthony had quite a few things to say and share, so the recording is being broken up into two parts. You can look forward to the rest of the discussion in the coming weeks!

TSP 25: At the Movies – The Unbelievers (Anthony and Chad)

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

In this episode we are launching a new type of episode called “At the Movies.” With this format we will be watching a feature film that thematically fits with the content of this podcast. Not every movie will be blatantly religious or secular, but it might hit some marks that are relevant to what we want to do with The Secular Perspective.

We would also like to invite the audience to suggest movies that would make for a good discussion. Feel free to send those suggestions and recommendations through the proper channels.

The Unbelievers (2013)

Director – Gus Holwerda

Writer – Gus Holwerda, Luke Holwerda, Laurence Krauss

Starring – Richard Dawkins and Laurence Krauss

Synopsis – Renowned scientists Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss cross the globe as they speak publicly about the importance of science and reason in the modern world.

TSP 23: Heathen Hodgepodge 4: Creeping Theocracy and FFRF Hate Mail (Anthony and Chad)

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

We start out this depraved discussion by mentioning a few religious based documentaries. Anthony uses the phrase “It’s almost like it’s a cumming cock in motion, and that’s the red jism flying off of the penis.” Then the guys discuss some local news from around Indiana and other parts of the country that was reported in FFRF’s Freethought Today. Chad and Anthony were sort of all over the place in this episode. Many tangents were fleshed out, but sometimes that’s the best stuff. Enjoy!

Podcast – You’re Not Alone, Secular Meet-ups (Anthony and Chad)

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

 

A few weeks ago, Anthony and Chad attended a meetup.com event for an atheist group. We wanted to break down our experience and encourage you all to reach out to a similar group; especially if you have to conceal your beliefs for any reason. Also, Anthony joined the Freedom From Religion Foundation to further reach out to the secular community, and he tells you about the benefits of doing so. Let us know what you think, and enjoy!

Podcast – Heathen Hodgepodge 2: Electric Boogaloo (Anthony, Chad, and Matt)

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

This is the second half of our first hodgepodge episode (awesome title, right?!). The guys bring up all kinds of fun topics like how Jesus is similar to Superman, Hobby Lobby’s continual desire for American theocracy, our disappointment in Pope Francis’ recent comments on childless marriages, one of the best trolls of all time at the Oklahoma Statehouse, and a recent discovery at a Catholic seminary in Ireland that really got to Anthony.

Podcast – Heathen Hodgepodge: Birth Control, Abortion, and Sex Ed (Anthony, Matt, and Chad)

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

Welcome to our first foray into topic-less episodes. “Heathen Hodgepodge” is an opportunity for us hosts to bring up anything that has been important to us lately. This could include articles we’ve found, events from our lives, or philosophical discussions. Really, we bring up anything we damn well please.

This time we sort of went off on a tangent when Anthony brought up the birth control debate. We discussed our opinions on abortion, sex education, and corporations as individuals. In order to not have a 2 hour+ episode, we decided to break this recording up. Check back in a few weeks for the second part, and let us know what you thought of this one. Thank you, and enjoy!
