Episode 84: A (Brief) Tale Of Two Dead Priests

In this brief episode of The Tall Friendly Atheist Dad Podcast, I go over some thoughts as to why recently-deceased Australian Catholic priest Father Bob Maguire was so loved, whereas the other recently-deceased Australian Catholic priest, Cardinal George Pell, was almost univerally reviled.

Episode 83 - Easter Special: Response To Tingman!

In this special Easter episode of The Tall Friendly Atheist Dad Podcast, I respond to a video made last year by one of my favourite YouTuber's, Tingman, a well-known figure in the Australian speedcubing community.

Darwin vs God

One thing that strikes me as somewhat hypocritical is how religious people will pin the atrocities of the 20th century on Charles Darwin or on atheism (despite only tenuous links at best) yet when it's pointed out that religious people - especially Christians - have started wars, committed and assisted in genocides, enslaved people, protected child abusers and tortured people for thought crimes THEN out come the excuses:

They weren't true Christians.

They didn't read the Bible correctly.

They followed their sinful heart instead of listening to Jesus.

One could just as easily reply:

They weren't true atheists.

They didn't read Darwin correctly

They followed bad advice instead of listening to qualified professionals

One of the reasons I am writing about this is because I am writing up a response to the movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed...

Stay tuned!

Episode 81: "William Lane Craig Welcomes You To His Cult"

Some time ago, eminent Christian philosopher Dr. William Lane Craig released a video which can be summarised as a brief welcome to people who just converted to Christianity. Now, my opinion of Dr. Craig is admittedly low at the best of times, but even with giving him the benefit of the doubt, I really can't help but think that he's really welcoming you into a cult.

Dining Tip!

 A "fusion" restaurant is simply a restaurant that combines two styles of food and does neither of them well!
