    Atheist Uneducated Hit Piece Against Theism: Review of Yahweh God Takes No Pity Documentary Part 1 & 2

    Atheist Uneducated Hit Piece Against Theism: Review of Yahweh God Takes No Pity Documentary Part 1 & 2

    In this week’s show my cohost and I tackle the recent attack on the Israelite vision of God depicted in the Hebrew Scriptures. This is discussed in the documentary mentioned above created by MythVision's host Derek Lambert. We appreciate his bold attempt at biblical criticism that falls into the debunking traps of counter-apologetics by being as narrow, one-sided and sometimes misguided as religious dogma. We ask the question: is he fighting against religious literalist perspective or the moral quandaries all people of good will do when they engage with the biblical text?

    Augustine's Jewish (Heretics, Atheists, LGBTQ, etc) Problem in Modern Culture

    Augustine's Jewish (Heretics, Atheists, LGBTQ, etc) Problem in Modern Culture

    In this week’s show we discuss the stigmatization and demonization of “the other” in western Christianity throughout the ages.

    We explore St. Agustine’s influence on the many heretic hunters of Christianity who use Jews as the boogie man and how that is now applied to other groups. St. Augustine’s rhetoric of carnal vs spiritual, Jew vs Christian is so engrained in Christian thought that is hard to deny. The following article addresses St. Agustine’s complicated view of Jews which in his conclusion became a devastating stigmatization of Jews as the eternally cursed tribe that roams the world aimlessly due to their rebellion. His influence gave the many heretic hunters of historic Christianity the precedent  to use Jews as the eternal boogie man: https://adfontesjournal.com/commonwealth/augustine-and-antisemitism/

    Higher Strangeness Author Eric Bickernicks

    Higher Strangeness Author Eric Bickernicks

    In this week's show we are joined by author and filmmaker Eric Bickernicks, he wrote Higher Strange and it's sequel Higher Strangeness. His first satirical novel was  "Artifice" back in 2016.  His latest work, "Higher Strangeness," is a surreal exploration of conspiracy culture, inspired by the likes of Q-Anon, Alex Jones, Pizzagate and the paranoia surrounding surveillance technology. I think of it as The Turner Diaries for the intelligent.This novel is the second installment in my "High Strangeness" series. The first book sets the stage by satirizing UFO culture, crashed saucers and alien grey folklore.

    "Something strange has arrived on Cape Cod, and it’s not just the UFOs.
    Ken Wakeman, a skeptical UFOlogist who seeks the truth about paranormal phenomenon, struggles to discredit the myriad of crackpot theories out there. Melissa "Mel" Howard, a reporter for a small Cape Cod newspaper, copes with the seasonal tourist invasion and its accompanying anxieties. When the Cape becomes the national focus over a rash of UFO sights, they join forces to get to the bottom it.
    Despite denials from town officials and the military that UFOs have landed, mass hysteria overcomes the seaside community. In addition to the frantic humans, Astro, Ken’s Golden Retriever has also been acting strangely.
    Joining the invasion is Klick, the promiscuous leader of a spandex-clad UFO cult whose members want to “amalgamate” with the Fornacisians when their spaceship lands. Mel learns that when dealing with wing nuts, the truth isn’t necessarily “out there”. Tom Frasier, an infamous proponent of crashed saucers and frozen alien bodies, claims the local military base houses some intriguing secrets. After a visit from the FBI gives legitimacy to Tom’s story, Ken will ultimately decide how far he’s willing to go to witness humanity’s greatest close encounter."

Compelling Conversation

You have to keep listening. This is what intelligent conversation about fringe, religious, spiritual and societal topics is supposed to sound like. It’s always exciting to see what each new episode topic will be and if you’re looking to have your perspective expanded, shattered, and rebuilt in a way that only makes you smarter....you gotta tune it!
