"Greece v. Galloway", Linda Stephens on Atheists Talk #273, June 20, 2014

 

In November of last year, the Supreme Court heard arguments on the government-sponsored prayer case, Town of Greece v. Galloway. Susan Galloway, who is Jewish, and Linda Stephens, who is an atheist, argued that the Christian prayers sponsored by the town of Greece, NY were a discriminatory exclusion of non-Christian citizens who attended town council meetings in order to do business with the city. On May 5, the court narrowly ruled that these sectarian prayers did not discriminate because they were “traditional”.

This Sunday, we’ll speak with Linda Stephens about her experiences with the council and her involvement with the case.

"There Was No Jesus, There Is No God" Raphael Lataster on Atheists Talk #272, June 15th, 2014

Atheists Talk is pleased to welcome for this week's interview, Dr. Raphael Lataster, author of the book There Was No Jesus, There Is No God: A Scholarly Examination of the Scientific, Historical, and Philosophical Evidence & Arguments for Monotheism. The book seeks, according to its website: 

to merge the accessibility of popular atheistic writings, with the rigorous scholarly research normally limited to academic journals and monographs. Avoiding the seemingly endless debates on the social impacts of religion, There Was No Jesus, There Is No God is only concerned with the evidence.

Dr. Lataster is a former fundamentalist Christian, and a professionally secular PhD researcher (Studies in Religion) at the University of Sydney. His main research interests include philosophy of religion, sociology of religion, Christian origins, logic, epistemology, Bayesian reasoning, justifications and social impacts of atheism, Taoism, overpopulation and sustainability concerns, pantheism, and pandeism.

We hope you will join us this Sunday.

"Grief Beyond Belief", Rebecca Hensler on Atheists Talk #271, June 8, 2014

 

In many ways, religious people "own" death and bereavement. They are rarely so confident, or feel they are on such solid ground, as they are when someone dies. But the comfort offered by believers is often the last thing a grieving atheist needs. Talk of life after death or God's plans offers little comfort to those who don't believe.

A few years ago, facing her own grief and the religious assumptions of her support group, Rebecca Hensler started Grief Beyond Belief, a support group for grieving non-believers. She joins us this Sunday to talk about the group and the challenges that deaths of our loved ones provide for atheists.

"The Galapagos: A Natural History" Henry Nicholls on Atheists Talk #270, June 1, 2014

Our guest this week on Atheists Talk is Henry Nicholls, a celebrated journalist, author, editor and broadcaster with specialties in evolutionary biology, conservation and history of science. He will be joining us to discuss his recently published book, The Galapagos: A Natural History

The Galapagos Islands are located in the Pacific Ocean, west of their parent mainland, Ecuador. They are a beautiful paradise comprised of several islands, and are dedicated to preserving the bountiful natural wildlife contained among them. They also conjure memories of Charles Darwin's voyage on the H.M.S Beagle, where he did so much of the research that went in to the writing of On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. In The Galapagos: A Natural History, Henry Nicholls explores the many roles that this collection of islands has played in our human history - from wilderness, to research spot, to tourist destination - and he explores what The Galapagos can tell us about our future.
