The Freed Thinker Podcast Episode 6.7 - Book Review of Disproving Christianity - Conclusion


In this episode of The Free Thinker Podcast we wrap up the presentation of my book review of David McAfee’s book Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings. We start with his chapter entitled Atrocities and Absurdities, move on to the conclusion of Part 1 of the book then finish up by looking at the handful of small secularist reflections (really more anti-theistic than strictly secular).

The Freed Thinker - Special Edition: A Discussion on Moral Philosophy part 1


This edition of The Freed Thinker Podcast we take a break from our presentation of my book review of David McAfee’s book Disproving God and give the first part of what will ultimately be a 5 part series on the questions of moral philosophy. I am joined by my friends Nicholas Bruzzese from The Skeptics Testament (and who has been a guest on the show before) and new comer to the show Brandon Christian, who many of your may recognize from the TST facebook page.

In this first episode we introduce ourselves and give some of our background and then we survey some of the preliminary concepts that will be needed to navigate through this series.

As a sneak preview this is the content for the next 4 shows:

Episode 2: Tyler argues for Objective Moral Realism
Episode 3: Nicholas argues for Contextualism
Episode 4: Brandon argues for Nihilism…ish.
Episode 5: We respond to YOUR comments and questions! (so keep them coming!)

For resources on this book I recommend the following books (later episodes I’ll recommend books, podcasts, and online articles for a little more variety)

Moral Philosophy: A Reader ed. by Pojman
Moral Relativism and Moral Objectivity by Gilbert Harman and Judith Jarvis Thomson

Enjoy the show!

The Freed Thinker Podcast has gone missing!

Wanted: Anyone with good tech support skills and knowledge of iTunes.

Ok seriously, the podcast has hit an unforseen glitch. It has stopped showing up on iTunes when it is searched for. The feed is still active and everyone can still upload new episodes if they have already subscribed or if they have the feed address, but it  cannot be found through the search function and I'm not sure why. I have contacted both iTunes and Podbean and neither were really helpful and basically told me to go talk to the other one.

Sooooo.... any recommendations on how to resolve this little issue?
