The Secular Perspective
F*ck you, Establishment Clause! Discussing the Town of Greece v. Galloway Decision (Anthony, Chad, and Matt)

For the first time as a group, the gang gets together to discuss the appalling Supreme Court decision from Town of Greece v. Galloway. Anthony (or Tiny) makes a tasteless holocaust joke, Matt defends secular hyperbole in new media, and Chad learns what the Zapruder Film is …. things got very random; but the discussion was good and fun times were had. Enjoy!

Correction: Three times (seriously?), Anthony referred to the current Supreme Court as the “Rhenquist Court.” This is actually the “Roberts Court”; apologies for that.

Secular Bible Study: Genesis Part III (Anthony and Matt)

If you have ever wondered how an atheist reads The Bible, this series is for you. Anthony and Matt discuss notes they took and thoughts they had as they read Genesis. This is the third episode of the series Secular Bible Study where Anthony and Matt read through The Bible for the first time as secularists.

Eventually, all 66 books will be covered. Unfortunately, Anthony and Matt had A LOT to say; so the recording is being broken up into multiple parts. This is the last episode for Genesis. In the weeks to come we will move on to Exodus; so make sure you come back!
