Another Goddamned Podcast #36: October 23, 2008


THIS WEEK - Should Atheists Tread Lightly on Theist Toes?



Original audio source

A subcommittee of the Herd considers Philly’s query whether atheists should avoid language that provokes the ire of theists. Should we take pains to avoid provocation? SI wonders if we should be responsible for theists' insecurity. Chappy seems to attract more ire than the other two, and tells you why. (00:00)

Philly tells us about the recent advertising showing up on the sides of London buses as a potential form of provocation against theists. Are atheists damned if they do and damned if they don't? Are they damned, period? (12:58)

The most recent poll results (Where ARE the other members of the Herd?) and some baseball talk. (26:42)

And here I was thinking I as late. Nice discussion once again.

Funny isn't how Christians can openly voice that you are going to hell but the minute you say, hey there's probably no god man your an insensitive atheist prick.

I have been overwhelmed recently by my countries ridiculous plas to filter the entire internet to protect the kiddies from child porn. Unfortunately we don't have a first ammendment. An astonishing thing is that there is almost universal condemnation of the plan from every sector of society apart from the religious right.

Check it out for a laugh once all the election mumbo jumbo is over.

Come on, Sean, get with the program. You know as well as I do that going to hell and being tortured forever isn't nearly as big a deal as making Baby Jesus cry.

I think I will just answer the question.

My answer is "Fuck no!!".
