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.

Sorry for the delay, but my internet is out because Comcast blows dead bears.

A news episode at last!  I must admit that I got a bit ranty in the beginning of the episode.  You can find links to the news articles along with contact info for the show in the show notes.  Sorry I don't have time to put them here, but I'm tired and need to get this episode posted tonight.  You'll get another episode tomorrow, it'll be a Bible Myths episode, and I may get out a second news episode tomorrow as well.

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.

Episode 0004 Baby Killin', Tall Towers, and Big Dicks!

In order to keep the lengths down to an hour long or so, I'm going to alternate between doing a news episode and reading from Bible Myths and Their Parallels in Other Regions.  In this episode, we cover chapters 3 -5 which deal with child sacrifice (What exactly was Abraham up to when he took Isaac out?), the Tower of Babel, and how Jacob's dream about angels climbing a ladder is about reincarnation and penis worship.  You can download an ebook version of Bible Myths for free here.  The section of Judges which deals with child sacrifice can be found here.  If you need more information on baby killin' you might want to read up on Moloch.  And for the dick worshipping, here ya go.
