  1. That is awesome! Thanks so much for fully revealing your anti-intellectualism. With your beliefs, you would likely have made a wonderful mideavel cleric! Maybe even an Inquisitor! Poor Copernicus and Gallelio. Fortuantely it is the 21st century, so your mideavel beliefs are held by nearly no one. It was fun playing with you, but I will now step away from this conversation. G-bye.
  2. Says the guy who maintains that the entire universe and everything in it magically poofed into existence when a supposedly pre-existing, uncreated Hebrew tribal god burped.
  3. It's mythology, and just like any ancient mythology, it contains no real truth. Mythology just helps simple people living in an ignorant time feel they have some measure of understanding regarding their violent and harsh world. Nowadays trying to use ancient mythology to explain reality is silly.
  4. That Hebrew myths explain absolutely nothing, regardless of your or my ignorance as to exactly how it (nature) all works. Ben Franklin was condemned by the churches of his day for inventing the lightning rod. Why? Because lightning was the power and wrath of God and Franklin was thwarting the will of God. Religion is silly.
  5. Misunderstanding of Hebrew mythology, you mean.
  6. And therefore, "God did it!" Which of course explains nothing any more than the statement "Mother Nature did it." Or "Zeus did it." Or "Allah did it." Or "an elfin magick unicorn did it!" Any apparent survival illogic in the lifecycle of a butterfly argues against "intelligent design" and instead supports the natural process of (mindless) evolution. Lots of species have gone extinct, because natural evolution comes with plenty of variety but no guarantees. The absence of a total and complete knowledge or understanding of anything in nature does not by defa
  7. I enjoy being entertained by fantastic tales as much as anyone. But, a fantastic tale is still just a story. And, there are many tales of people surving all kinds of seemingly impossible senarios. Example: 9/11 WTC survival stories. Nothing supernatural about it.
  8. Religious myths and fables are just myths and fables, nothing more.
  9. The ancient Greek Philosopher Epicurus taught that Atoms were the basic building blocks of all else, and cannot come into existence, but have always existed. Therefore the universe has no beginning, but has always existed, and will always exist. The Catholic Church tried to wipe out these ideas as an eternal universe does not require a creator, it just "is."

  12. In today’s episode of the Atheist Experience, Matt Dillahunty is joined by Shannon Q. Shannon is a longtime friend of the ACA and we are glad she is joining us today! Welcome Shannon! First up we have Earl in New York, who has proof of the nephilim (aka giants.) He claims his “evidence” comes from the bible. It could be confirmation bias and very likely internet hoaxes or conspiracy theories. Shannon puts it best: “Advocate for your own understanding. Go and find your sources, seek out the information, do the research.” Will in Washington is up next, claims the ability to perceive beauty is pr

  14. Welcome, @GrandmaDeeDee. I hope you find some inspiration here to assist you in finishimg your novel and hope you also eventually find a path to complete peace of mind for having returned to reason and reality after a lifetime in mental bondage. With respect, @webmdave
  15. In today’s episode of the Atheist Experience, Matt Dillahunty is joined by Lloyd Evans. Welcome back to the co-host chair Lloyd, I quite enjoyed your last appearance on the show and have since added ‘an onslaught of nutters’ to my lexicon. Let’s get to calls. The first caller is Dave in Austria. He would like to invite us to question slavery in a different way, one that shifts the question. Matt has OPINIONS about this. Next up, Sawyer from Australia would like to talk about becoming an atheist activist after leaving Jehovah’s Witnesses. Lloyd has a fantastic perspective and whether this is

Also happy birthday Phil! Let’s get to calls. The first caller is David from Georgia. He claims that 100,000 years ago, the magnetic field was decaying and caused the Earth to… all of the what? I am not following this caller at all. Phil puts it succinctly: “Wow, that was… profound.” Next up, a different David, this time from New York would like to talk about prostitution and has reasons for believing it i

  20. In today’s episode of the Atheist Experience, Matt Dillahunty is joined by the wonderfully amazing Don Baker. Before we get to calls, we have a topic to discuss from Don: ‘Are Christians Lazy?’ Let’s get to calls. Andrew from California wants to discuss something that has never EVER been discussed on the show… Are you ready for it? Julian from Canada would like to break down (in a nonreligious way) that a god or deity or higher power exists. Are we ready to get dizzy? When pressed on the definition of god, he responds with “god created himself and creation.” Keyon from Utah is wondering ho

  23. In today’s episode of the Atheist Experience, Matt Dillahunty is joined by Johnny Angel. Welcome back to the co-host chair Johnny! We loved having you on with us a couple weeks back, glad to see you again! Let’s get to calls. The first caller in the queue is a returning caller, Javier from Florida. He would like to discuss how he had a street discussion with a preacher against theism and it had him in a bit of a fluster. It sounds like he is almost on his way out and clinging to religion it seems. Good luck to you Javier! Next up, Dormand from New Jersey claims that he can prove a god and this
