  1. The Four Horsemen: Hour 2 of 2 - Discussions with Richard Dawkins, Ep 1

    http://richarddawkins.net - On the 30th of September 2007, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens sat down for a first-of-its-kind, unmoderated 2-hour discussion, convened by RDFRS and filmed by Josh Timonen.

    All four authors have recently received a large amount of media attention for their writings against religion - some positive, and some negative. In this conversation the group trades stories of the public's reaction to their recent books, their unexpected successes, criticisms and common misrepresentations. They discuss the tough questions about religion that face the world today, and propose new strategies for going forward.

  3. Episode 65: Philocalypse Now — Very Bad Wizards

    Download MP3 Audio (38.1 MB)Episode Notes and LinksNotesHoly crap, it's the apocalypse!!!!  …for philosophy. Maybe. Has this 2500 year old discipline become too technical, too disconnected from the real world? Is it just a handmaiden to the sciences? (Which would make Tamler Dave's handmaiden.) And what the hell is conceptual analysis? Plus, a short excerpt of Tamler's interview with Simon Blackburn, and definitive proof that worms have free will (sorry Sam). And only one more week to buy our t-shirt!LinksFree Will?

  4. You Made It Weird #201: ‘Science Mike’ McHargue « Nerdist

    As an atheist I loved this episode. I have no issue with other people being religious (and actually love the idea and stories behind many religions)

    Mike is the type of religious person I would never have any issue with. He doesn’t argue against reasonable information, doesn’t minimize other peoples beliefs,

    His justification for his belief is personal and he has bothered to learn enough to understand that others may not have the same experiences.

    For a time i wanted to be sort of like him, but I just never had the personal moments he has, have never really felt a god so I’ve only ever had the science side.

    Instead of talking to jesus or god when i was young and frustrated with the world around me i would talk to an imaginary friend in my head, So i had a similar mechanism but since i never had it in a divine context it didn’t inform my world view that way.

    Anyway, wonderful episode.
