Freethought blogger and philosophy professor Dan Fincke talks with me today about all kinds of stuff, like…
How attending a very religious college helped him become an atheist (with help from Nietzsche); how his passion to further public discussion keeps him going; his thoughts about happiness and fulfilling human potential; the importance of building community that is based on common rational values, the process of “coming out” as an atheist; religious PTSD; struggle and growth; “A” week (soon!) and the Reason Rally (very very soon!)
(No wonder Dan was worried I wasn’t going to be able to edit this down to a half hour show….)
If you want the longer versions of any of these topics, you’re going to have to pay a visit to Dan’s blog Camels With Hammers, which he updates regularly – and with gusto, I must say.
Our closing musical treat comes to us from Australia – “Saved” by Shelley Segal is the hit single from her latest CD An Atheist Album. You can go buy her record and/or you can hear her perform at the aforementioned Reason Rally next week. So what are you waiting for? Tally ho!
