"Mr. Deity," Brian Dalton on Atheists Talk #112, April 17, 2011

Brian Dalton is the writer, producer and director of the slyly subversive webcast comedy series "Mr. Deity."  Mr. Deity has created our Universe with love and affection; mostly.  This was not a simple production, you see, and there are many aspects to Creation of which we humans are not capable of understanding.  Dalton's "Mr. Deity" is all too human, avaricious and behind his lovable exterior he hides a deep need to be worshiped.  He is not above throwing a bunch of natural disasters in our way to get us to pay attention without "violating our free will."  Mr. Deity is a funny look behind the scenes of Creation.  Sure, things could have been done a bit differently.  But would that have made as good of a story?
 
Brian Dalton is the featured speaker for the Humanists of Minnesota's Spring Banquet on April 17th.  He will be in our studio on Sunday and Scott Lohman, the President of the Humanists of Minnesota will be talking to him about the series.

"I'll Take Sweden, Ja Ja," Martin Rundkvist and Yusie Chou on Atheists Talk #111, April 10, 2011

Science Blogger and outspoken Atheist Dr. Martin Rundkvist is a Swedish archaeologist affiliated with the University of Chester. He is the managing editor of Fornvännen, Sweden's foremost archaeological journal. Yusie Chou is a journalist and broadcaster. She was raised in Mao's China and came to Sweden at age seven with her family.
 
Rundkvist and Chou live and work in Sweden;  a culture and a country in which atheism is the norm and the mention of god or Jesus by a politician is frowned upon.
 
On the show, Dr. Greg Laden and  our guests will discuss atheism from this perspective, and contrast what it is like to live in a primarily atheist vs. a primarily theist society.
 
We will also discuss how atheism and atheists interface with the society in which they are embedded can be very different depending on context. In addition, we can find out if a nation transforming over to atheism actually does experience the doomsday scenario painted by many outspoken American religious leaders. We may also talk a bit about our guests' reaction to Nordic culture in Minnesota and Swedish archaeology.
 
Greg Laden is a frequent guest and interviewer on our show.  He is a biological anthropologist with field work experience in Africa.
