Eric Steinhart is a philosopher of religion specializing in new and emerging religions. Eric comes from a long line of evangelical congregationalist preachers. He no longer identifies as Christian, but does not see much value in the label atheist either. It was a fun chat.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Other – 2018-12-27 – Eric Steinhart”
This is my first ever “in absentia” ersatz interview. It was inspired by its namesake, Robert White, whom I have never met in real life, as far as I know–although that would be even more hilarious. In any case, this is just a fun survey of his trite anti-Catholic comments, which he has been scattering like high-octane manure all over my YouTube channel for the past 36 hours or so. Enjoy!

Going into this I knew nothing about Mr. Ra, but from his picture I knew I had a real character on my hands. He did not disappoint. The more I listen to him, the more I like him. I have a special fondness for that charming combination of gruff hostility and naive innocence. And he’s funny, too–I have never laughed so much during an interview.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Atheist – 2018-12-22 – Aron Ra”
A recent guest, “Philo Theism”, recommended that I interview Graham Oppy, so I reached out by email. I was delighted that he was willing to be my guest. We discussed his worldview and locked horns over the issue of free-will. It was a fun chat.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Atheist – 2018-12-19 – Graham Oppy”
I have been friends with Russell for about a decade now. He is a sweet guy, and one of the few friends with whom I can discuss almost anything–even religion. In this chat we discuss, sex, death, free-will, and the first-cause proof of God’s existence.
I met Shaun through his younger brother Dylan Maxwell, whom I interviewed in 2016. Shaun is an affable family man. He earned both his Masters degree and his Ph.D in Philosophy, with an emphasis on the nature of consciousness. He is currently writing a book on the Freedom of the Will.
I met Zvi Leve through Facebook. He is a secular Jew. His interests relate to trying to understand how people interact with their built environment and the role of technology in shaping behaviour. For fun he likes arguing with libertarians. I enjoyed our lively chat.
This is my sister, Linda, whom I love very much. She was adopted into our family when my parents lost my sister Faith at birth due to Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. It was fun getting to know Linda a little better because we have never talked about religion before.
Uzi reached out to do Part 2 after listening to Part 1. He was uncomfortable with his strong language and other aspects of his first interview, and has grown from the experience. This is what it’s all about. Thank you Uzi.
Diabolically Informative put out a video on his YouTube channel defending some aspects of Morgue’s Hyperianism, which has some Pythagorean roots. He is the first idealist I have interviewed, but not the last, I hope. I enjoyed hearing his perspective.
