Episode 63 – Guest David Fitzgerald

We’re back from a godless weekend in Kamloops to bring you yet another great podcast episode. I feel invigorated with new energy, particularly after Dan Dennett gave us an idea of just how frightened religious authority has become over losing so many of their number to the ranks of the nones, particularly the younger crowd. We are winning the battles in spiritual warfare! What a weekend! Kudos to the INR committee! I look forward to going again next year!

This week David Fitzgerald joins us to discuss Jesus and Mormons. He is the author of Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed At All (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/Nailed-Christian-Myths-Existed-ebook/dp/B007GPG290/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1369666584&sr=8-2&keywords=david+fitzgerald) and The Complete Heretic’s Guide to Western Religion Book One: The Mormons (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/Complete-Heretics-Western-Religion-ebook/dp/B00CRQIUFW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1369666584&sr=8-1&keywords=david+fitzgerald). One question I didn’t think to ask was “Why doesn’t he pick longer titles?”

A shameless skeptic with no patience for foolish nonsense and relishes nothing more than busting balloons filled with hot air. And, yes. I'm an atheist, for the same reason that I am a-homeopathic, a-chiropractic, a-reiki, etc. Atheism is a conclusion of modern skepticism applied to religious claims every bit as much as I don't buy into the Bigfoot myth. You want me to accept your claim? Show mete evidence, and it had best be better than the typical "Oh, but the evidence is all around you!" That gets no traction with me. But that doesn't mean my mind can't be changed. I'm no contrarian. I just happen to have more respect for myself than to fall for arguments like "You can't prove it isn't true!"
