"Koran Curious" CJ Werleman on Atheists Talk #132, September 11, 2011

(Ed. 09/11/11 - We weren't able to connect by phone with CJ, but we did the show anyway.) 
 
On September 11, 2001 terrorists hi-jacked four planes and slammed into the Pentagon and the World Trade Center towers in New York City.  This show will be on the tenth anniversary of that event, another in a series of events that "changed everything."  It did bring more attention to Islam in the United States, in the form of bigotry and fear for people who have no understanding of this religion.  It is a religion of peace, as much as Christianity and other religions.  Islam is the invention of the prophet Muhammad, and is based largely on his interpretation of the Bible and the Gospels and re-interpreted for the Arabic world he sough to unite.
 
In our effort to promote the understanding of the religions we don't accept, we have invited CJ Werleman back on the show for a second interview.  CJ has written a book to give some background and information on the Koran and Islam.  The book is written in two parts.  The first section is a biography of Muhammad.  It follows his rise from a caravan merchant to the leader of the religion that dominates the Arab culture and has spread throughout the rest of the world.  The second section contains excerpts from the Koran.

"Humanists at the Fair" - Atheists Talk #131, Sunday Sept 4, 2011

What is humanism? What are its core principles? On what topics do humanists agree and disagree, and how do they live these principles? Sunday's show doesn't promise to have all the answers, but the conversation should be illuminating. Listen to Scott Lohman, president of the Humanists of Minnesota, and friends discuss the topic during one of Minnesota's greatest gatherings of humanity--the Minnesota State Fair. The panel at the live show at the AM950 KTNF booth are Scott Lohman, Audrey Kingstrom and Mark Thoson.

"Atheists at the Fair," Atheists Talk #130, August 28, 2011

Minnesota Atheists Live from the Minnesota State Fair
 
Atheists like to go to the fair, too.  Join us at the AM950 KTNF booth for our popular series of broadcasts from the fair.  Many people still have questions about atheists and atheism and members of the Minnesota Atheists will be there to answer them as well as we can, for example:
 
  1. What evidence, if it were to be presented, would lead an atheist to believe in God?
  2. Where do we find our basis for ethics and morality?
  3. Where do we find guidelines for raising our children?
  4. Why do atheists fight so strongly for an absolute separation of state and religion?
  5. Are atheists anti-religion?  Do we "hate" religious people?
  6. Do humans have souls?  What happens to us after we die?
Please stop by to say "Hello" and if you would like, to ask any questions that you may have.
