The Miracles and Atheists podcast is where truth-seekers and storytellers unpack the TENSION between different world views of the supernatural.

The project started as a 4-hour Live Stream on Facebook and is now transitioning to a bold, new podcast where skeptics and believers talk respectfully about faith and the supernatural.

Miracles and Atheists is a forum for truth-seekers to discuss tough questions and objections to "supernatural" events and the Christian faith. We also love talking about miracles. So many assertions are made these days, and very few are open to listening to each other in love. Hopefully you are...if so, you'll enjoy the Miracles and Atheists Community (the MAC).

    M&A071 - Inauthentic Christians and Atheists (Movie-Making w/ Niel Guilarte)

    Capturing ON FILM the genuine moment an atheist experiences the power of God for the first time…is this even possible? 
     
    Will it be authentic? 
     
    For many, whether believers or non-believers, it can be challenging to ascertain the authenticity of a “spiritual moment” caught on film, without questioning whether that moment was setup, or if there are alternative motives behind the experience.  We can’t have that with Miracles & Atheists, and that’s one of the reasons atheists and Christians are working together to experience “so-called” miraculous events, to film these experiences.  The movie-making process is a unique one and we’d like to share that process with The Miracles & Atheists Community.  That’s why we’re also partnering with award-winning digital media/content producer, editor, speaker and coach, AND our new co-host of the Miracles & Atheists podcast, Niel Guilarte. Niel specializes in high end media creation and post production as well as coaching businesses, entrepreneurs and creatives in developing and bringing their visions to life pulling from over 30 years of experience in pro audio / video production and post production for television, video, online platforms, indie film, podcasting and more.
     
    Nick Snapp and Niel Guilarte talk about what it was like to hit the streets with a camera, strike up some spiritual conversations, pray with people and take risks to see what happens.  We talk about the movie-making process and why people are starting to get excited about the Miracles & Atheists movie.

    M&A070 - The Moment an Atheist Experiences the Power of God (w/ Niel Guilarte & Nazach Snapp)

    M&A070 - The Moment an Atheist Experiences the Power of God (w/ Niel Guilarte & Nazach Snapp)

    If God Almighty exists, does He make Himself known to those who don’t believe in Him? What would it look like if an atheist were to experience the supernatural power of God for the first time?
     
    It’s a question that’s been on my mind for quite some time now, and one I’m willing to explore.  If atheists are truly open to truth, and they want to experience miracles, as many of my atheist friends who come on the show claim to want, will they? 
     
    If I were to invite our atheist friends on a journey to find miracles, would they be willing to go?
     
    On today’s podcast, we’ll explore these ideas and tell the story of how Miracles & Atheists got started. We’ll also reveal where we’re headed.  It’s an exciting time in M&A history, as we turn the page and start another chapter of this wild journey of unpacking the tension between different worldviews of the supernatural. 
     
    You’ll also meet our new Co-host! (OR is it Co-hosts?) We’ll see!  Enjoy…

    M&A069 - Skeptics: Can Man Really Control the Climate? (w/ Jason Deramo)

    M&A069 - Skeptics: Can Man Really Control the Climate? (w/ Jason Deramo)

    What would happen if it were proven that “fossil fuels'' didn't come from fossils at all?  What if they were created by simple chemistry within the Earth, and we weren’t actually running out of oil and natural gas?  What would you do if oil deposits were filling back up after being drawn down?
     
    What if they were [gasp]...a RENEWABLE RESOURCE? 
     
    Do you like your Tesla?
     
    What would you do if you found out the cost of producing lithium and cobalt for the batteries used to power your electric vehicles were absolutely DEVASTATING the environment and the surrounding communities in which these resources are being mined?
     
    What if all these initiatives, all these efforts, all this talk about climate change was just the work of a small group of “businessmen” to create scarcity for resources that aren’t really scarce at all? 
     
    How would you respond, if you knew that God, not man, is the only one who can really cause true climate change…even though man can manipulate the weather (or can he?) 
     
    Bring out your skepticism tools my atheist friends, and let’s apply them to the narrative you’ve believed since grade school about fossil fuels.  Let’s use them to “follow the science” and examine the mainstream narrative you’re absorbing about climate change these past few years.

    M&A068 - A Demon Brought Me to Church (w/ Wiley Anson)

    M&A068 - A Demon Brought Me to Church (w/ Wiley Anson)

    For some people, it takes a supernatural encounter with a demon and projectile vomiting to turn it all around.  Depression, pride, greed: gone in an instant.  But what about homosexuality? 
     
    If all that really exists is time and chance acting on matter, homosexuality would be no exception.  People are, or they are not, right?  From a materialistic, naturalist worldview, homosexual brains just fizzed in the direction of same-sex attraction, and that’s that.  It’s not God’s doing, it’s just chemistry.  God doesn’t even exist according to most of my atheist friends, so what does someone who doesn’t exist care about homosexuality?
     
    It’s funny though…atheists often question not only the existence of God, but the morality of God as well, and why wouldn’t they?  How can God be moral if He created people to be gay, only to make them deal with everything that comes along with being gay?
     
    But what if a homosexual brain were to suddenly fizz in the another direction?  What if a homosexual ceased being gay?  Would it be a miracle?
     
    Probably just random fizz… 
     
    Our guest today on Miracles & Atheists is Wiley Anson.  Wiley has had supernatural experiences with demons and he knows a thing or two about being gay.  His story is a good one, and contrary to much of what you’ll hear from human secularism.

    M&A067 - (Pt 2) Reprogramming God’s Code: The Technology that Opens the Door for Satan to Emerge (Call-In Show w/ Jason Deramo)

    M&A067 - (Pt 2) Reprogramming God’s Code: The Technology that Opens the Door for Satan to Emerge (Call-In Show w/ Jason Deramo)

    Is editing a person’s genes not all that big of a deal?  Just stick you with a needle, remove your defects using CRISPR technology, or inject some protein compound into your cells using mRNA technology and move on, right?
     
    You would certainly get that impression by listening to guys like Yuval Noah Harari and Klaus Schwab.  They talk of things like the “4th industrial revolution,” and changing your “identity,” and changing “who you are,” the fact that this isn’t a mainstream topic of conversation says a lot about our media in 2023.
     
    They also talk about going “beyond the God of the Bible.” 
    Yes, seriously.
     
    What are the spiritual consequences of changing who you are with technology, or even talking like they do about becoming gods?
     
    This is the topic we’ll explore as we get into Part 2 of Nick Snapp’s conversation with Jason Deramo, titled, “Reprogramming God’s Code: The Technology that Opens the Door for Satan to Emerge.”

    M&A066 - (Pt 1) Reprogramming God’s Code: Is Human Genetic Engineering a Good Thing? (Call-In Show w/ Jason Deramo)

    M&A066 - (Pt 1) Reprogramming God’s Code: Is Human Genetic Engineering a Good Thing? (Call-In Show w/ Jason Deramo)

    Do you want your baby with blue or hazel eyes?  Order now, and you’ll save 10% on gene therapy with this special offer! 
    25 years ago, the idea that babies could be altered genetically for the purpose of correcting mutations or even specifying preferred genetic traits or skills was merely fantasy.  This technology, and the ramifications of such a world were portrayed in detail by the 1997 movie, Gattaca.   
    Yet, in 2023 fantasy is quickly becoming reality.  Human Genetic Engineering, using CRISPR and other programmable systems to target stretches of genetic code and edit DNA at precise locations is very desirable to many people.
    Wow.
    Do you think this is a purely humanistic, materialistic endeavor, or is there spiritual motivation?
    So what does God think about this technology?  Who’s kingdom will be glorified through CRISPR gene editing systems?  
    The Miracles & Atheists Podcast is re-releasing a fascinating conversation with Jason Deramo and Nick Snapp on the Miracles & Atheists Community Call-In (The MACC) show in two parts, where they  examine the spiritual side of human genetic engineering and see if we can glean any insight into what’s going on.

Monica Perez Burnett ,

An open invitation

This podcast is literally an open invitation to ask questions. The world doesn't invite us to do that these days. Nick and Marcus do an amazing job of listening to different points of view and asking the hard questions that make us dig depper into what we truly believe. Thanks so much for showing up and being a light in the world! Keep up the great work guys!

Recipe for Insight

It’s impressive the way Nick & Marcus orchestrate conversations with all of their guests. The mutual respect, mixed with the personal beliefs, as well as the experiences being shared is immeasurably eye opening. No matter the mindset it’s a must listen! My favorite part hands down are the questions asked by Nick, it’s exemplary!

Neutral Grounds

I’ve been listening to a few episodes now and have been amazed by the level of insight these speakers possess. Nick and Marcus do a great job with choosing topics to challenge and inform people of all religious and worldview backgrounds, while providing a space for those beliefs to be challenged without shame. Well done! 👏🏼
