SHOW NOTES

Welcome to a normal old Sunday here at Talk Heathen. No bunnies or eggs on this show and no “he has risen” junk.  

Miguel in England subscribes to Spinoza’s views about god, claiming god is everything that exists in the past, presence and future. What we fail to understand is how you get from the universe to someone creating it, not to mention your claim that god created himself. Atheists don’t have any codes or beliefs and we have searched for many gods, all seem to fail to critical scrutiny.
Lise in Canada has seen some other atheists bash abrahamic religions but romanticize eastern religions. Atheists should look into all religions critically but not all atheists are critical thinkers. Most of the callers are christian so this show kind of skews that way. Most of what we encounter is a western version of these eastern religions so they don’t see the history of harm caused by Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.

Kat in Indonesia picked the perfect show to talk about the harms of religious indoctrination, they wonder if they can move past that trauma. You CAN change and in fact are currently changing. These ingrained thoughts will be with you for a long time, but you can heal from them. 

Jason in California called in his thanks to the show for helping him deconstruct his religion. Thanks and congrats for doing the hard work to deconvert!

Bill in California shares his experience of losing his faith while watching prayer fail to heal his wife. We’re sorry for your loss and thank you for sharing your story. Happy Co-opting Pagan Holiday Day!

Thank you for tuning in, Heathens! Question of the week is: Why didn’t God ban slavery?
