hey guys, another Sunday, another edition of Sunday School. :)
so, first off, i've just finished locking down our next contest. this giveaway will be for a signed copy of John Loftus' new anthology The End of Christianity. there will be 3 winners. details, including dates are soon to follow. follow me on Twitter or connect with me on G+ to get the details as soon as they're available. in the meantime, do check out some of the contributors to the anthology that we've already had on the show-- Richard Carrier, Matt McCormick, Valerie Tarico, and Robert Price. and stay tuned for our upcoming show with another contributor Hector Avalos. (and we're recording this coming week with another contributor Jaco Gericke for a show to air later!). of course, don't miss our chat with Loftus himself.
then, tonight we have our interview with noted skeptic and host of the Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast, Dr. Steven Novella. Greg and Dr. Novella talked about how to overcome our innate biases and errors of reasoning and judgment in order to be better skeptics. fantastic stuff. don't miss it!

says Michael Ruse, "[I]ncreasingly I cannot for the life of me see why any decent human being would want to be religious, and increasingly I think one should be ashamed to be religious."
