An Atheism related podcast hosted by a guy and his cat. I cover news stories and read from the Biblical Apocrypha as well as fend off attacks from my cat.

This episode is a bit of a long one, I'm afraid.  It clocks in at an hour and twenty minutes and tells the story of Samson, the strong man, and how he's most likely a sun god from an earlier religious tradition that has been adapted by the writer of the book of Judges to a heroic figure.

 

This episode also has some listener email, from a listener in Taiwan who's started a couple of atheist groups in the city where he lives.

Episode 0008 The Ten Commandments and News Bits

This episode covers chapter 7 of TW Doane's Bible Myths and Their Parallels in Other Religions, which deals with the 10 Commandments.  Its only about 30 minutes worth of material, so the rest of the episode consists of news stories.  Think of it as a bonus news episode, rather than being deprived of more of Doane's work.  Show notes can be found at tparkatheist.blogspot.com

Hi, I'm drunk.  I think that everything I've mentioned should show up, somehow, in the various versions of this that I've done.  If not, then Google it, and you'll get the answer in a couple of seconds.  Please remember that Professor Fuzznuts Jr., loves you and blesses you!  I'll have a new episode up some time this weekend.
