On March 26, 2015 Governor Mike Pence signed SB101 which is broadly worded enough that would allow business owners to legally discriminate again whomever they wish if it allegedly goes against their personal religious beliefs. It has had a huge backlash in Indiana and Anthony and Chad had a little bit to say about it.

TSP 35: Heathen Hodgepodge 6 – The Ark Encounter Loses and The Guys Check In (Anthony and Chad)

It would be fair to say we talk about Ken Ham too much. He, and his organization, made some more waves in the news lately, and the guys had to discuss it. Then Chad and Anthony check in on their latest endeavors into secular and religious research.

TSP 34: Bill Nye v. Ken Ham, A Year Later (Anthony and Chad)

One fateful February evening in 2013 the scientist and revered personality Bill Nye traveled to Kentucky to debate Ken Ham, the CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis, on the viability of The Creation Theory. That was one year ago. As you’ll learn in this episode, this debate was instrumental in the founding of this podcast. Anthony and Chad have wanted to discuss and breakdown this debate for a long time. This episode is the culmination of tons of research and work about Creation and this debate specifically. Please join us while we break down, critique and discuss the debate between these two titans of their respective worldviews.

 

*Please Note: There was an equipment malfunction at the 32 minute mark and the audio was distorted as a result. We apologize for this.

TSP 33: The Global Threat to Secularism (Chad and Anthony)

Have you ever felt threatened or ostracized as an open secularist? If you haven’t, you’ve probably heard stories from around the world. Here in the United States atheists are allowed a voice, but are often criticized and excluded for doing so. However, this pales in comparison to the global threat to secularism. The truth is, in some places around the world a person could be put to death for simple apostasy. Chad and Anthony feel that the global atheist community needs to come together in an effort to stop these atrocities. Listen to us discuss this disturbing trend.

TSP 32: Haters of the Lost Ark (Chad)

 

Chad is being further hounded for money by Ken Ham and his cronies at The Ark Encounter. He’s learning the hard way what it’s like to be stuck on a mailing list. This is a reading of the letter that attempts to squeeze said donation out of Chad. You also get an update on the current a future outlook for The Secular Perspective Podcast.

TSP 31: Heathen Hodgepodge 5 - Batfleck is dumb and JOSH FEUERSTEIN (Anthony & Matt)

Here is another Heathen Hodgepodge entry, where anything is game for discussion. We typically bring up news, articles and happenings in the world of religion and secularism. In this episode, Matt vents about and criticizes the internet’s favorite proselytizer, Josh Feuerstein after he selfishly tried to make a dying woman feel bad. Then, Anthony tears into Ben Affleck (Batfleck) for his idiotic tantrum on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

TSP 30: The ISIS Conflict (Anthony)

Have you been intimidated or weary of trying to understand the ISIS conflict in the Middle East? Are you hesitant to criticize Islam? Are you curious about this issue, but can’t figure it out? Anthony was just as conflicted about ISIS. So he decided to research the topic and truly understand it. This episode is a summation of the conflict and an exploration of what the problem is.

 

*Disclaimer: Anthony is not a professionally educated expert on any subject mentioned in this episode. This is all information gathered from the news and periodicals. If there is anything you’d care to comment on, correct, or ask, please contact the podcast or Anthony directly.

 

* Disclaimer: Anthony messed up some logistics and directions a few times. He said that ISIS was “marching east into Syria.” Syria is actually west of Iraq. Then, Lebanon and Israel are west of Syria on the Mediterranean Sea. Apologies.

TSP 29: Paranormal Skeptivity (Anthony and Chad)

 

This is a fun, goofy little tangent that Chad and Anthony went off on one night. Anthony decided to save it for Halloween time because it pertains to ghosts and paranormal activity. Thanks for listening and have a happy Halloween!
