  2. Pete Rollins

    This week I speak with "pyro-theologian" Peter Rollins.  This interview, perfect for Holy Week and Easter, is about "divine doubt" and letting go of the need for God to solve our problems. His latest book is called The Idolatry of God:  Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction. "He explores how the Good News actually involves embracing the idea that we can’t be whole, that life is difficult, and that we are in the dark. Arguing that God has traditionally been approached as a product that will render us complete, remove our suffering and reveal the answers, he introduces an incendiary approach to faith that invites us to embrace our brokenness, face our unknowing and accept the difficulties of existence. Only then, he argues, can we truly rob death of its sting and enter into the fullness of life."

    Osama bin Laden was one of America’s most formidable and implacable enemies. And yet no one has written a serious assessment of his influence over world events in the last decade.

  8. Sam Harris - THE NEW SCIENCE OF MORALITY

    The failure of science to address questions of meaning, morality, and values, notes neuroscientist Sam Harris, has become the primary justification for religious faith. In doubting our ability to address questions of meaning and morality through rational argument and scientific inquiry, we offer a mandate to religious dogmatism, superstition, and sectarian conflict. The greater the doubt, the greater the impetus to nurture divisive delusions.

    He’s the King of All the Atheists, and now Richard Dawkins is hammering home what he sees as his key argument against the existence of God. In his book, The Greatest Show on Earth, Dawkins aims to put the theory of evolution in a factually unassailable position.
