Greetings Heathens! Hope you are still safe during the ongoing pandemic (still, sigh.) We hope to be a sanctuary for you in this chaotic world. In today’s episode of Talk Heathen, Johnny P. Angel is joined today by Christy Powell. Let’s get to calls! Marlon from the Philippines is calling to talk about how a dog “died” and came back to life because of his healing pastor and his parish. What a miracle! How does this prove a God though? Why has this not been documented and studied? Why weren’t there scientists there to figure this out? This is major! Steven in Washington is up next, he would like to hear our perspective on Christian nationalism in the US. Our wonderful hosts weigh in and provide great observations and how believers can be allies to non-believers and atheists. Le Chef in Canada has two infallible and unfalsifiable arguments that there is historical and natural evidence for God within a seven day cycle. He explains these arguments and we get to discuss them. Oh, and he dropped, sad! Stan in Nevada is pondering if some Bible verses were meant to be a joke. Interesting thought exercise, what do we do with this? Where do we go with the idea that it shouldn’t be taken seriously? Kevin in New York is calling back, this time wanting to talk about epistemology and the Bible. He was also wondering how people justify their beliefs and if these beliefs are true. Ok, here we go. (Waiting for the Johnny P. Angel smackdown/research hour.) Dave in Georgia wants to provide a little bit of insight into the Christian nationalism he experienced and how this sort of movement has been building over the last couple decades. The conversation evolves in how his marriage is being affected by his non-belief and her Christian nationalism. Up next, Gohan in Texas wants to talk about the horribly tired and contrived Violinist’s argument in terms of abortion. He keeps replacing the terms of zygotes and clumps of cells with a person’s autonomy, and this is completely dishonest and frustrating. That’s our show for this week, please continue to be safe in your area, wear your mask, and get vaccinated if you can. The world is better with you in it. See you next week!
