The Atheist in the Trailer Park

Aug 24, 2014

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.
