"Minnesota Atheists at the Minnesota State Fair" Atheists Talk #81, Sunday August 29, 2010

Who better to explain atheism than the board members of the Minnesota Atheists?  I will be at the State Fair for a discussion on the definitions and implications of atheism with George Kane, August Berkshire and Laura Hutt.  We will have an open microphone, too, for you to come up and ask questions of atheists.  What do we believe?  What don't we believe?  If there is no God, then who made everything?  (Sorry, that's a trick question.) What is the best approach to discuss issues with believers?  How many angels can dance on a stick at the State Fair.  
 
We know the answers to some, but not all of these questions and we invite you to join us at the KTNF booth at the State Fair prior to your day of stuffing yourself and checking out lambs being born.  
 
"Atheists Talk" is produced by The Minnesota Atheists.  August Berkshire is the director and Mike Haubrich is the host for today's show.

"Skeptical Confessions of a Ghosthunter" Atheists Talk #80, Sunday August 22, 2010

Is there a ghost in my house?   Is there a ghost in any house?  What are ghosts?  On this show we have a ghosthunter turned skeptic as our very own Todd Torkelson explains the answers to these questions and more. Todd spent his teens and early twenties renting "haunted" hotel rooms, leading ghost tours and investigating the paranormal in his hometown of Albuquerqe, New Mexico.  Somewhere, he took a left turn and turned skeptical of the paranormal.  He became skeptical of many things and is now an active member fo the Minneapolis Skeptics, the Humanists of Minnesota and the Minnesota Atheists.
 
Todd is a speaker on the subject of skepticism; he explains how it works and how to approach claims critically.  We want to know whether or not atheists are all good skeptics and whether or not all skeptics are atheists.  Please listen to learn what we say is the truth.

"Old Bones and Modern Genetics." Greg Laden, Lynn Fellman. Atheists Talk # 79 August 15, 2010

 

Lucy, Ardi, Frodo, and us: what old bones and new genetics are revealing today

Who are these people and can we call them family? Listen to Greg Laden and Lynn Fellman discuss how recent fossil and tool discoveries are changing the shape of our family tree. 

A report earlier this week showed evidence for stone tool use at  3.39 million years ago — much earlier than previously thought. 

In addition to ancient bones and tools, genetics is filling some of the pre-historic knowledge gaps. For instance, genetic material from 40,000 year old bones show that some of us are one to four percent Neanderthal. 



As a biological anthropologist, Greg Laden has insight into how the recent finds are challenging intrenched ideas. He'll talk about what new trends are changing our understanding of human evolution. Taking us through past and recent discoveries, Greg's engaging way of thinking critically about the mixing of bones and genes reveal a remarkable and controversial family story.


Lynn Fellman is a member of Minnesota Atheists and an independent artist inspired by evolution and genetics. You can see her work on display at UROC now through December. Commissioned by the University of Minnesota, the exhibit are DNA portraits of Native American, African American, Laos and others from the Northside community. See the art online at:

"Conversion, Deconversion and Religious Indoctrination" Atheists Talk #78, Sunday August 8, 2010

Conversion is the process through which a person's orientation on religion changes.  How do people turn from and to new religious groups, ways of life, systems of belief and modes of relating to a deity or a the nature of reality.  Dr. Grant Steves will be with me in the studio to discuss faith, conversion and deconversion with a dollop of religious indoctrination.
Dr. Grant Steves is a member of the Minnesota Atheists.  He has a doctorate in Theology, and is an atheist. Mike Haubrich is a director on the board of the Minnesota Atheists, a former Catholic and deconverted evangelical Christian.
