Ideas for segments

Post  bob52 on Sun Oct 31, 2010 11:41 pm

Hi Guys

I love the podcast. I started listening to the shows a few weeks ago and have listened to all but 5 shows. I have an idea for a deconversion subject that comes under the heading of counter apologetics. There is a book I read that helped me to get past some of my lingering psychology from being a believer, and it is called "Leaving the Fold" by Dr. Marlene Winell. I think Dr. Winell would make for a great segment that would help people that are in the deconversion process.

I would also like to mention that I read a recent book by Stephen Prothero called God is Not One - In this book Prothero offers a "Codex on Atheism" where he attempts to draw parallels to atheism as a religion. Prothero would make for a good interview.

The Book "In Praise of Doubt - How to have Convictions Without Becoming a Fanatic" by Peter Berger and Anton Zijderveld helped me to open my eyes to the danger of relativism and I would want to hear an interview with the authors or your comments on the book.

I took your recommendation and read "Secular Conscience" by Austin Dacey and I thought it covered some of the same ground as In praise of doubt but from a different perspective.

Thanks again for putting together such a wonderful show! I will keep listening and tell others.

Regards,

Bob

Have you heard of this guy?

Michael Dowd

He tries to bring science to religion without completely losing the "god" language. Not too popular with fundamentalists.

He seems pretty accessible, I suspect he would be interested in being on the show.
