TGA Podcast: Episode 20

This week, on The Good Atheist, we cover topics ranging from Ben Stein to The Russian Parliament. Also, we continue our weekly feature of idiot of the week. We’re not sure if it’s very popular yet, but certainly, it makes us look a little smarter.

    Great podcast as usual. I saw a Cops episode that had a similar situation as the idiot of the week. This crack head chick flagged down a cop and complained that this dealer took her money and didn’t give her the crack she bought. When he asked the dealer she explained she was a hooker not a dealer so the crack head was mistaken.

    Russia has always been the most antisemitic place on earth, worst than German until the 1930’s. Thats why during the ’30’s there were so many Jews in western Europe they all fled Russia.

    I finally managed to listen to the last two episodes at work today, and I really enjoyed hearing you guys back with the show.

    The ‘Idiot of the Week’ segment is nice. I like that it’s not strictly a theist/atheist bit, too, because stupid exists on all ends of the belief spectrum.

    Keep up the good work, gentleman!

    The idiot of the week doesn’t have a whole lot to do with atheism, but it is entertaining. I say keep it. I nominate that priest who tied a bunch of helium balloons to his chair for a segment.

    I totally second that nomination, Ninjitsu!

    Loved the rant, Jake. As usual, you said pretty much everything I’ve been thinking, but, like, way better than I could’ve said it.

    About that principal – that was awfully nice of her to help out the a$$holes of the school so that they can carry out hate crimes against the gay kids, without having to do all that pesky foot-work. Sheesh.

    Nice podcast, its good that you guys are back to making them regularly.
    BTW: I found this article on Einstein that titled ‘Belief in God a ‘product of human weaknesses’.

    It is a good read, on Einsteins perspective on God.

    Yeah, I laugh when theists try to “claim” Einstein as one of their own because of the quote “god doesn’t play dice”.

    Ben Stein blew my mind. Why couldn’t it be HIM picking up trash for a week…

    Yo, Jacob and Ryan, great podcasts. I listened to all of them during one week of work and now I’m stuck waiting for the next episode.

    Going to record one this Sunday. Starting in 3 months, I’ll be a full time blogger on one of my other sites, so that means I won’t have 3 jobs! More podcasts, and I can finally devote some time to the site! I haven’t forgotten about you guys!

    Super late for me to be commenting now but I just wanted to say how awesome the cheesecake analogy was when you guys ranted about the smugness of some religious people. Thanks for the laugh.
