Some people have given me a hard time about calling myself a critical thinker but not being willing to cast a critical eye towards some of my own beliefs. Well, I’m happy to hear anything anyone has to say that can convince me to change my mind about just about anything and when it comes to science and the atheist community, I am very critical of certain behaviors and shortcomings. In this weeks’ podcast, we’re going to talk about some aspects of that, starting with the bad attitude and intolerance some atheists have towards believers as people and the problems that creates with people who are on the fence or have recently come out of religion.
This week, my guest is Stephen Long, on twitter as S. Bradford Long. He is a writer and will be doing his own podcast in the not-too-distant future to address themes of faith and doubt. He is also a Yoga Teacher, is a member of the LGBT community and identifies as an esoteric Christian.
Carrie Poppy’s TED Talk is here.
