Flat Earth Runner left a comment on my YouTube channel with a link to one of his comedy roasts. I immediately asked him to be my guest and he agreed. As you might have guessed from his name, Flat Earth Runner believes that the Earth is flat. He is also a self-taught non-denominational Christian. I enjoyed meeting him.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Protestant – 2019-01-12 – Flat Earth Runner”
I never expected a self-proclaimed Christian, much less one who has experience debating, to hang up on me mid conversation; but that’s what happened when I asked this guy why he rejects the doctrine of the Real Presence.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Protestant – 2019-01-26 – Post Mortem”
Thoth and I discussed cosmology, the nature and reality of political and religious authority, and, indirectly, theodicy, or the problem of evil. There is much unresolved philosophical tension between us, but it was nice to chat with my old friend, nonetheless.
I met Shane on YouTube. He identifies as a combination of Gnostic and Baptist. Among other things, Shane believes that Satan is not pure spirit, but has a human form with both male and female sexual organs. He was friendly, and we got along well in spite of our theological differences.
I met John on Facebook. He is a family man who teaches Philosophy at John Abbott College. He is a colorful character with a very open mind, but he chooses to identify as Christian. I enjoyed listening to him talk, and hope to have him back. Lots of fun.
This Triple Post-Mortem dissects, in purposefully vague and general terms, the vetoed interviews of three baptized men who shall remain unnamed to protect their identities. All three men were very antagonistic and objected to my use of the word “versus”.
I met Jerry on Facebook, through my friend and recent guest, Thoth. Jerry lives in Taiwan with his wife and their 14-year-old twin boys. He describes himself as a non-Denominational Christian, but has some Calvinist leanings. I forgot to ask him about free will. Next time, perhaps.
I met Thoth about 20 years ago when we were both agnostics. I met him through the University of Concordia Film department. Because of his sensitive creative nature, he has a lively sense of humour and a fresh way of seeing things. He now lives in Taiwan.
Dan is very close with a good friend of mine. He has suffered from a lot of health issues, but recently underwent a health and wellness ordeal that positively impacted his faith life. I love the enthusiasm and energy of this kind and generous man.
I met Meagan at a party through mutual friends. She is a professional singer by trade, and an Anglican by faith. During our friendly chat we drank tea from fine porcelain china and nibbled on home-made banana bread. I felt right at home.
