TSP 35: Heathen Hodgepodge 6 – The Ark Encounter Loses and The Guys Check In (Anthony and Chad)

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

It would be fair to say we talk about Ken Ham too much. He, and his organization, made some more waves in the news lately, and the guys had to discuss it. Then Chad and Anthony check in on their latest endeavors into secular and religious research.

TSP 33: The Global Threat to Secularism (Chad and Anthony)

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

Have you ever felt threatened or ostracized as an open secularist? If you haven’t, you’ve probably heard stories from around the world. Here in the United States atheists are allowed a voice, but are often criticized and excluded for doing so. However, this pales in comparison to the global threat to secularism. The truth is, in some places around the world a person could be put to death for simple apostasy. Chad and Anthony feel that the global atheist community needs to come together in an effort to stop these atrocities. Listen to us discuss this disturbing trend.

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)

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.

Podcast – TSP 22: Heathen Hodgepodge 3: Poems, YouTube Atheism, and Ken Ham

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

Anthony reads two poems (feel free to skip this), and Chad shares an STD themed haiku (it’s amazing). The hosts give props to the underappreciated Jaclyn Glenn and other women of YouTube, who have their content ignored by horny dudes. Teaching kids fairytales as though they’re reality affects their ability to think critically ….. huh, who would’ve thought? Ken Ham said things … again.

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.
