    Excellent show. I disagree about the manned-space exploration (I take a bit of a Neil deGrasse Tyson view of things) but you made some good points.

    Good points raised, brilliant freethinking. Being atheist is about expression without shackles!

    Amazing show. I’m new to your show and also a new atheist. And I really enjoy what you talk about

    You mentioned a news feed link to my mailbag question, where would I find that? Or is that something you are wanting to do if the kickstarter allows?

    Thanks for another rambling episode. I thought you two made good points, especially about how the incredible diversity of atheists is a strength. Seems like too many American atheists tend to think in terms of opposing the Religious Right with political power, while people in other nations tend to take the longer view, waiting for most of the highly religious (who are older anyway) to slowly dwindle away. Well, at least Christians are shrinking in numbers. However, we still have the big question of what to do about the more fervent and radical elements of Islam.
    Concerning your not-so-veiled barbs thrown at TAM and similar conferences: I agree that we have a lot more important things to argue over, but we still should support women who wish to assert themselves as atheists. Perhaps it’s because TAM has become more about preaching to the choir and hanging out afterwards, is what makes it less useful.
    Over 400 USD just to get into the conference? Is the underlying message that only the wealthier members of skepticism and atheism are welcome, while the rest of us who are scraping by have nothing to say worth hearing? I personally don’t see where the presence or absence of a sheepskin makes the slightest bit of difference whether or not one becomes a skeptic or atheist. And if all these conferences will accomplish are disagreements about proper etiquette while attending, then what is the point in holding them anyway?

    I just found your show and I’m loving it. Advertisements suck, thanks for having the clarity to not include them. +$10 to your kickstarter.
