H42: Dan Fincke on Replacing Religion (and all kindsa other stuff)

Play

Freethought blogger and philosophy professor Dan Fincke talks with me today about all kinds of stuff, like…

Dan

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!

Shelley
