Have you guys found me on Google+ yet? I share Sunday School links on G+ as I find them each day; no waiting till Sunday! There's a great community of people I share the links and interact with. And on Twitter is where we do our book giveaways! If you connect with me at either place, let me know you found me through Sunday School, say hi!
So in just a few days we'll be starting the new year of the Think Atheist Radio Show. We already have some killer guests that we're working on. Just in the next couple of months we'll bring you discussions with philosophers, scientists, and journalists about all kinds of subjects that matter to freethinkers. Why does the Design Argument fail exactly? Why do people leave their religion? Why is religion natural and science unnatural? What about NASA and space exploration? Quantum Mechanics? How can the universe come from nothing? Church/state separation? The latest advancements in neuroscience? Did evolution hardwire us to develop culture, and why? And that's just the next couple of months!
In the meantime why not check out some of great interviews from this last year? We talked to former minister turned atheist, John Loftus; physicist and blogger at Cosmic Variance, Sean Carroll; astronomer and blogger at Bad Astronomy, Phil Plait; historian and philosopher Richard Carrier; arch skeptic and founder of Skeptic magazine, Michael Shermer; evangelist turned atheist and co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Dan Barker; and James Randi himself, just to name a few! Go here for the full list of our shows with links to listen or download the mp3 for playback later on all your devices!
Remember, anyone wishing to donate to the Think Atheist Radio Show can always do that by visiting this page. Besides donating directly you can also support us by making sure that everything you buy from Amazon, now during the holidays and whenever, on into the future, you purchase via this link. When you use that link you'll pay no more and your packages will ship just as fast, but the Think Atheist Radio Show picks up a tiny fraction of Amazon's profits on each purchase as support. Remember, even though we've certainly carefully selected some reading suggestions for you to consider from the store, you can buy anything using this link, no matter if it's books or not. Thanks for your support!
