"You're killin' me Smalleys!" - And Interview with David Smalley

On this episode I have a very…. Well let’s just call it interesting conversation with David Smalley, the infamous host of Dogma Debate.... It started on the topic of if Atheism is a belief or a worldview then spirals from there. Have your popcorn handy for this one!

Toward the end of the discussion we start discussion Peter Boghossian and whether or not he said theism/Christianity should be classified as a mental illness in the DSM. You'll here how that goes... 

The quote in question was: "There is perhaps no greater contribution one could make to contain and perhaps even cure faith than removing the exemption that prohibits classifying religious delusions as mental illness. The removal of religious exemptions from the DSM would enable academicians and clinicians to bring considerable resources to bear on the problem of treating faith, as well as on the ethical issues surrounding faith-based interventions. In the long term, once these treatments and this body of research is refined, results could then be used to inform public health policies designed to contain and ultimately eradicate faith.” Peter Boghossian A Manual for Creating Atheists (Kindle Locations 3551-3555).

But look, even Jerry Coyne read it how pretty much EVERYONE read it... oh and see the comments on this blog and you'll see all the atheists saying exactly what David claims to never see...

Why Accurately Handling History Matters - Part II Rising Tensions

This is part 2 in my series responding to Leighton Flowers' abysmally bad article dealing with Servetus and Calvin (you can find it here: "Why Servetus is a Valid Argument Against Calvinism").

You can find Part I of my series here.

In Part II, I now begin a far more accurate presentation of the history leading up to Servetus' arrival in Geneva. Part III will explore his arrest, trial, execution, and the response on the world-stage following fast on its heels.
