Eric Steinhart suggested that I interview Lincoln Cannon. Lincoln is an LDS Mormon and a Transhumanist, meaning that he is interested in ethical ways of using science, engineering, and technology to advance the human race beyond our present limitations. I enjoyed our friendly chat.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Other – 2019-01-12 – Lincoln Cannon”
In this episode I compare and contrast different ways of sacrificing, for the sake of God, the self-evident gifts that make us human: free will, reason, and morality.Continue reading “CVS Meta – 2019-02-09 – Atheism and agnosticism”
This episode was inspired by two very different CVS listeners, John Revell and Robert White. I talk about solipsism and the irrational abuse of our freedom and every other good gift from our loving God, who is, in spite of our selfish tantrums, courting us with limitless patience. The bottom line: get over yourself, and let yourself be seduced by the King of Kings.Continue reading “CVS Meta – 2019-01-03 – Solipsism and playing hard to get”
I met Steve McRae on YouTube when I was looking for videos with Graham Oppy. Steve considers himself an agnostic, but he does not consider himself an atheist. We discuss science, philosophy, and religion. It was a lot of fun.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Other – 2018-12-22 – Steve McRae”
I met Paul on The Coming Home Network’s online community. I asked him to come on my show and tell my listeners a little bit about his conversion, and he was gracious enough to accept. This is his story. Please visit turnkeough.com for more information, including links to his Journey Home episode, and more.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Catholic – 2018-12-22 – Paul Keough”
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”
This episode of Meta explains how I went from Hard Solipsism to Monotheism in a heartbeat back in 2009. I was reading Descartes’ “Discourse on Method” when the conversion happened. Basically, I said to myself, either I’m God or God is God, so if God is not God then I am God. But I know that I am not God, and that God is God because if I am wrong then I am also not wrong, since if I am wrong when I say that I am not God then I am God and God cannot be wrong. Therefore I know that I am not wrong when I say that I am not God. Therefore I am not God. But if I am not God then God is God. Therefore God is God.Continue reading “CVS Meta – 2018-12-24 – Solipsism vs. Monotheism”
I met Matthew through his brother Stephen, with whom I used to work. Matthew follows a non-denominational spiritual path guided by music, meditation and tai chi. He believes in the importance developing presence and inner peace for fulfilling ones purpose in life.

In response to the tsunami of open rebellion unleashed against Pope Francis by those who consider themselves “Conservative-Catholics” I discuss the simple but oft-ignored prophetic warning of Noah and how that Old-Testament type of the Vicar of Christ can help us to respect the St. Peter of our own day.

Taylor Schroll is Director of Youth Ministries and Conference Coordinator at Ablaze Ministries and Founder/Speaker/Radio Host/Worship Leader at Forte Catholic. If he can’t stir you from your lukewarm slumber then you are not asleep, but dead. It was a blast chatting with him.
