Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep, 180: What is QAnon?

1/14/2019
More
This week we are joined once again by fellow podcaster Mike Bohler who does a little show called "Conspiracy News;" his tag line is "A Skeptic's Guide to Conspiracy." So, it looks like it's time to get out our tinfoil hats and delve back into the world of crazy conspiracies! Tonight Morgan, Beth, and Deb - with Mikes help - are going to attempt to take a look at QAnon and the wacky world these folks live in. Is there a hint of truth, as some claim, to the baseless and unsubstantiated claims...

For some fun Deb, Morgan and Beth will be taking a look at the Right Wing Watch rundown of some of the failed predictions and prophecies from far-right and Christian soothsayers in 2018. On tap the ex-firefighter prophet Mark Taylor, fruit-loop Kat "the weather warrior" Kerr, Wayne Allyn Root who thinks liberal women are ugly.

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep, 178: Holy Relics

12/17/2018
More
So last week while discussing the Dead Sea Scrolls - Deb, Beth Morgan and Deana - took an brief side trip into Holy Relics; specifically the alleged Foreskin of Christ. Hilarity ensued but also gave us an idea to explore other so-called Sacred Relics and not just those endorsed by Christianity. Since Dee was part of the fun, BTTP has invited her back as we take a look at various usually physical remains of a saint or the personal effects of the saint or venerated person preserved for the...

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep, 177: The DDS are not fake!

12/10/2018
More
I know many of us, in discussions with Christians, have faced this tactic,,,But the DDS prove the Bible - no, no they don't. Of late, though, I have seen a very dishonest tactic being used - the sweeping counter claim the DDS are fake - which raises the question, how should or can non-believers utilize the recent disclosure that some post 2002 fragments of the DDS have been determined to be most likely forgeries? Join Deb, Beth, and Morgan, with guest Deana H returning. as we talk forgeries,...

Atheists on Air- Beyond the Trailer Park Ep- 176- Iglesia Ni Christo Upate with Joe Magestro (Repaired)

11/27/2018

In episode 145 we did a primer on Iglesia Ni Christo with Joe Magestro. Cultish religious group out of the Philippines. Well they're in our spotlight again with the murder of Canadian Barry Gammon in the Philippines. (Wife and son are safe in Vancouver.) Their lives were shattered, a Fifth Estate investigation (Canadian 60 Minutes type shows with more balls) determined likely because of something as benign as a property dispute with their neighbors. Join Deb, Beth, and Morgan with guest Joe...

11/19/2018
More
So we are going to try again and hope Murphy stays away!! Join Morgan, Beth and Deb as we attempt to finish our discussion on whether Amway is a cult. Are large organizations with a hierarchical structure more prone to cult like thinking and activities? Does the promise of a "reward" add to this apparent mind-set. We'll also look at what MLM is and various payment structures.

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep, 174: Amway a cult? Is it an MLM?

11/12/2018
More
Founded in 1959 by Jay Van Andel and Richard DeVos (yes,, that DeVos) it is considered an MLM that sells health, beauty, and home care products. While MLM is legal, Pyramids are not. If a multi-level marketing organizations places greater incentives for recruitment than product sales run,,, runaway. While not as popular as it once was, influence can still be felt. Tonight Morgan, Deb, and Beth are going to take a look at Amway and attempt to unpack exactly what Amway is or isn't. Does the...

Atheists on Air: Beyond The Trailer Park Ep. 169: Falun Gong

9/24/2018
More
Many of you may be asking, what the hell is Falun Gong? Some of you may have heard of the unusual cult before, but few people outside China will know much about them. If you happen to see them in a park, they look like they are just practicing a variation of Tai Chi or perhaps they are sitting in quiet meditation. They certainly seem pretty innocuous. However, they are just as wacky as Scientology and potentially just as dangerous, if not more so. Famously persecuted in China, tonight we...

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep. 168: NXIVM Update

9/17/2018
More
So when we last talked NXIVM, it was just a strange group known for branding women. Today it's a full blown sex cult with 5 defendants facing time in prison. It encompasses at least 3 countries and some big name players potentially culpable in the possible illegal activity. It has turned into a "bizarre world of messianic pretensions, idiosyncratic language and ritualistic practices." Tonight Deb, Beth, and Morgan revisit NXIVM to try and sort out what has transpired.

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep. 167: What You CAN Do

9/11/2018
More
The last while, we've had some heavy discussion about clergy abuse, stories that have angered and outraged many of us. Many of us have felt frustrated and helpless to do anything about the problem, especially as it seems to be a more egregious and widespread problem daily. So what can we do? Well tonight we are joined by Thomas of Holy Koolaid and Scott Ladoucier to tell us what they've been doing to help the victims and shine a light on the continuing cover-up perpetuated by abusive clergy....

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep, 165: Mormon or Not Mormon, That's the Question!

8/27/2018
More
This week, Bryce Blankenagel joins us to talk about the Mormon church’s current identity crisis. Specifically, what's with the want to be called "The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" and NOT Mormons. While a bizarre issue, its actually one fraught with a we bit of history,,, The church has had a complicated relationship with the term Mormon since its restoration in 1830. Church leaders long chafed at antagonists calling them Mormons and, early on, Mormonites, but in recent...

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep. 164: “Fight the real enemy"

8/20/2018
More
Twenty-six years ago, Sinead O'Connor got on stage for SNL. If you remember she tore up a picture of, then Pope, John Paul II. She got reamed in the press, especially the RCC press. Now some are apologizing. The hierarchy, on the other hand is bloviating. The warnings, they go back to the late 1940s. The pedophile scandal in the RCC is nothing new. The cover-ups and denial have a long history, some speculate centuries. Tonight, Deb, Beth, and Morgan talk about the scandal. Our reactions as...

So this week we play catch up with Steve DeMarco of Atheist News. If y'all remember on episode 97 we first met Steve; his channel numbers have grown since then. Join the girls as we talk with Steve about how his channel has grown, what are his plans for the future? We will discuss what as atheists we should be paying attention to - besides the obvious. Should we all be learning Russian? Or should we focus on the more mundane things within our own communities? There are many hot topic issues...

Atheists on Air: Beyond the Trailer Park Ep. 159: Skylar Fiction Talks Debating the Ridiculous

7/9/2018

“As far as homosexuality goes, you know, I believe the Bible puts the death penalty on it.” That wonderful line was spoken by Matt Powell, an anti-homosexual preacher-man interviewed by our guest tonight, Skylar Fiction. Oh and Matt is good with stoning disobedient children as well. But as Skylar maintains, we need more conversation and interaction, less rudeness and anger. Part of the Great Debate community, Skylar has an interesting channel on YT were he talks with current online...

This week, we are joined by Michael Wiseman, host of the new podcast “The Bible Says What?” We’ll let him tell about himself in his own words: “I was raised in a Christian home. Left religion in my late teens but held onto the fear I was indoctrinated with for a long time. One day I picked up the bible and read it and research it. I started writing down the questions that came up as I was reading which turned into a book, that is almost finished and eventually the podcast. I am new to all of...

6/11/2018

So tonight Deb going to be a bit out of the loop as we discuss the recent SCOTUS ruling concerning Masterpiece Bakery. While accepted by many as a narrow ruling there may be a slippery slope. Did SCOtus punt the ball? What about the First Amendment? These are some of the question we will explore with our guests. Charone Frankel is an attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey since 2007. She graduated from the school of law at the University of California at Davis in 2005, and prior to...

She moved to the entertainment capital of the world after graduating with an art degree from the University of Tennessee. She was raised by mom Gayle (Yep, past guest Gayle Jordan!) as a fundamentalist Baptist, and she found that transitioning to atheism has helped her develop a deep understanding of...
