Atheists in the Middle East

We interviewed two underground atheists in the Middle East about their journal – Arab Atheist Magazine (A.A.M.) –  and their personal experiences being atheists in a time of radical Islamism in the region.

Naturalistic Christmas Special

How and Why to Have a Naturalistic Christmas

In anticipation of our Naturalistic Christmas Special (Christmas Day from 3-5) we will enumerate the value of enjoying this holiday which is far older than the ancient Christian era.

We’ll have tips and clips and parody carols and lots more fun than would fit…ah…in a barrel?

Well anyway you get the picture.

So be sure to tune in to a program that can even get us atheists filled with Christmas cheer!

Lawrence M. Krauss on “The Unbelievers”

Where did the universe come from? Is an intelligent creator necessary to have set the Big Bang in motion? Theoretical physicist & cosmologist Lawrence Krauss doesn’t think so, and neither says the scientific evidence.

Krauss laid out that evidence last year in his book,  “A Universe From Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather Than Nothing”, demonstrating that it’s at least possible for a universe to arise spontaneously out of nothing. He’s also been giving talks and participating in debates, promoting science and unbelief, and this year he features with Richard Dawkins in a new documentary film called “The Unbelievers”, in which they travel the country promoting unbelief.

Krauss returns to the show to discuss science, religion, the universe from nothing, and why it’s important to talk about and debate these things. He will also discuss his new film, and much more. Krauss is a theoretical physicist and cosmologist who is a professor of physics at Arizona State University, where he also serves as Foundation Professor of the School of Earth and Space Exploration and director of the Origins Project. He is most well known for his contributions to cosmology, as he was one of the first physicists to suggest that most of the mass and energy of the universe resides in empty space, an idea now widely known as dark energy.
