My Religious Status Atheist, Secular, Anti-Theist, Pirate Lover. About Me: I'm so funny and intelligent that when I make jokes, people simultaneously laugh and get smarter... it's an enigma, like clothing on a playboy playmate - see what I did there? I'm a writer - currently for prolific blog www.rustylime.com. I'm a poet - this is a lie. I'm a fighter - more with my tongue than anything... take that however you want... ladies. I'm an intellectual - e=Mc2... apparently. I am well educated - I have degrees in both Fahrenheit and Celsius... some day I will rate in Kelvin. My blood type is O- - But I like to think of myself as a positive kind of guy. I was abducted by aliens at an early age - Bloody immigrants... always trying to take our jobs... and our children! I love the theatre - I've always loved sterile environments where operations take place. I am not an Animal lover - I prefer Beaker, that 'meep' sound he makes is hilarious. I am a science literacy proponent - people need to know how to blow shit up using household chemicals like nitrocellulose and ear wax! I deny evolution - while my cousin might look like an ape, she most assuredly isn't! I am a climate change skeptic - man was never meant to wear underpants! I love religion - But it's at that stage in it's life where it's getting really expensive to take care of it... I think it's time we took it behind the barn and put a cap in it's arse. I hate intolerance - I especially hate intolerant people, I hate them in the face! Thats me, if you want to know more, don't hesitate to procrastinate on sending me an email to ask questions about me and my pet Burrito named Dog! Age: Old enough to pretend I didn't hear the question, young enough to emotively storm out of the room because you asked! Why am I here: When a man and a woman love each other very much, they have 'intercourse' and if they love each other enough, the man won't 'pull out' and they'll make a baby. On this occasion, the baby was named 'Jake', and he's just great! The religion I left: Christian, Catholic Why I left My religion: disillusionment with church, doubts about god communicating to pastor, doubts about god communicating at all, contradiction between concept of "free will" and concept of omniscience god with will, "free will" doesn't make sense since desires not under our control, inability to view god as anything more than a sadistic tyrant, contradiction between bible's claim of god's love and existence of hell, doubting bible led to crumbling away of any firm belief structure, Also why I left my religion: Priest and pastor could not answer questions on quantum physics... made me question everything!

    As usual, a very entertaining show. I completely agree that jailing those Italian scientists for (in this case) saying what their bureaucrat boss essentially told them to say is unjust. This case may be part of the general drift to a new dark age as suspicion of science and scientists replaces the respect which they still deserve and enjoyed in decades past. I also agree with your assertion that listening to your show actually makes listeners smarter while they are laughing.

    With respect to your “masturbatory material for atheists” comment, I’m afraid I have to count myself among those of your listeners whom you do not love. (schnurfle… sucking back tears). IMHO, taking a hard line on religious lunacy is as valid a strategy as that advocated by you and your jolly team of hilarious social commentators. In fact, one semi-sane religious person’s inoffensive challenge to religious dogma and/or practice is another religious-right nut-job’s hardline attack on God straight from the mind of Satan. All criticism of religion, hardline or softer has the potential to convert people to atheism. Think of currently atheist people who were born into fundamentalist religious families. Many of them report experiencing their ah-ha moments while reading “The God Delusion” or something similar with a view to refuting its arguments.

    That said, I am not calling on you to do anything different from what you are doing. Your podcast is valuable, and immensely entertaining.

    IMHO, the hardest criticism of religion is to just demand that religious fanatics actually read their own holy books with a view to asking how adhering to every one of (eg) the 600+ commandments in the Bible would change their lives in today’s world.
