"A Diverse Nation" Grant Steves on Atheists Talk #241, October 20th, 2013

This program, "The Founding of a Diverse Nation and Ensuing Struggles", will cover the diversity of our Founders. It will also discuss Colonial citizens as a religiously diverse group with multiple competing interests who came together to form a secular Constitutional Republic. Our European past and Colonial history was one of religious persecution and conflict that had a major influence in separating government from religion. As our country evolves and both becomes more religiously diverse and sees its non religious population grow, our nation's Founders wisdom of secular governess becomes more essential to reduce religious strife and conflict.  This program will explore this history with interviewer George Kane, host Brianne Bilyeu, and guest Grant Steves.

Grant Steves has been active in Minnesota Atheists and has hosted the Atheists Talk Television program, as well as been a host and guest on the Atheists Talk radio program, a cofounder of the Secular Bible Study, newsletter contributor, and a retired public school teacher. He has a Doctorate degree in Theology.

Steves recommends the following books:

"Brave Genius", Sean B. Carroll on Atheists Talk #240, October 13, 2013

If ever a book seemed to design to merge the "two cultures" of science and the humanities, it would be molecular biologist Sean B. Carroll's newest work, Brave Genius: A Scientist, a Philosopher, and Their Daring Adventures from the French Resistance to the Nobel Prize. Nominally the story of the friendship between biologist Jacques Monod and philosopher Albert Camus, the book is also a history of World War II from the French perspective, as well as an exploration of the work and ideas of both men who were so profoundly affected by the war. Coming out of one of the most dismal periods in living memory, the humanism that both of these men embodied pushed them both to accomplishments deemed to be among the highest of our species.

This Sunday, Carroll will join us on Atheists Talk to tell us about the book and what prompted him to spend the years required to research and write a book of this scope.

"Skeptic's Annotated Bible" Steve Wells on Atheists Talk #239, October 6th, 2013

The Skeptic's Annotate Bible (SAB) is a website dedicated to spreading the Good Word...and the bad word, the violent word, the misogynistic word, the unjust word and the contradictory word. These are a few of the categories that the SAB has created to capture the messages that can be found in the King James Version of the bible. The individual books of the bible are able to be easily searched, and the creator (that's a lowercase "c") offers handy notes which distill and summarize the key messages of each section.

The goal of the SAB is to encourage believers to examine more closely this book that so many of them claim as the cornerstone of their faith and worldview. As the SAB FAQs state: "I'd like people to look carefully at the Bible and decide if it is worthy of their belief. When, if ever, people stop believing in the Bible, I'll take my site down."

This Sunday Steve Wells, the creator of the Skeptic's Annotated Bible joins Atheists Talk to discuss his research and the website. Since its inception, the SAB has expanded to cover the Quran and the Book of Mormon. Steve Wells is also the author of the nonfiction book Drunk With Blood: God's killings in the Bible.

"Fifth Report of the IPCC", Greg Laden on Atheists Talk #238, September 29, 2013

The fifth report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has just come out, and Greg Laden joins us this Sunday to tell us what it means. What do over 800 representatives of 85 countries have to say about the state of consensus in scientific literature? More importantly, what do we need to do about it?

Additionally, various memes denying the science of climate change have popped up again in anticipation of this report. What might you have been hearing about climate change recently, and why is it wrong?

We'll talk about it all Sunday morning.
