"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.

"World Population Balance." David Paxson on Atheists Talk #128, August 14, 2011

David Paxson is a national leader on the issue of population growth and stabilization and founder and president of World Population Balance. From their vision statement: "We envision a world where no one suffers in dire poverty and misery for lack of enough food, water, and other basic needs. We see a world where all species thrive and where lower consumption and population are in balance with Earth's finite resources."World Population Balance is further defined by their Mission Statement. "We alert, inform and educate that overpopulation is a root cause of resource depletion, species extinction, and rising poverty. To avoid more misery, catastrophe, and death, we advocate and support a smaller, truly sustainable population."

David Paxson has spoken to audiences across the country and the world including the 1994 UN Population Conference in Egypt. Paxson has dedicated his life to educating the public on population issues. His philosophy is:"He believes that as people learn the realities about the current impact of rapid population growth upon declining global resources, they will take fair and humane action to help stop world and national population growth in order to maintain a viable planet for our children of the future." Paxson believes all people regardless of religious, political and social views can work together to solve overpopulation, and today he talks with the atheists, humanist and freethinkers.

This is David's second appearance on Atheists Talk.

The New Atheist Books Atheists Talk #127, August 7, 2011

  Scott and I will be discussing the two big watershed books for the New Atheism:  Sam Harris' The End of Faith and Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion.
 
  The topic for this show turned out to be a broad range of approaches to atheism and skepticism.  Rather than try to summarize it, I would invite you to listen to the podcast if you weren't able to stream it live.
