Events happen. Sometimes weird events happen. Over the course of a person's life, a few really weird events are likely to happen.

I would. (Other atheists might not.)
I have had events like that happen occasionally. I acknowledge the strangeness, the coincidence, but I don't see how it could be anything but chance.

What would your explanation be?

If that is true, and all you want is to provide accurate information about atheists, then the information you provide is simple.

Atheists don't believe in gods.

That is the ONLY defining characteristic of an atheist. Any other "information" is inaccurate. There's nothing more than that. Period. If you apply any other qualification for atheism you are doing so dishonestly.

Interview done.

At God-Talk, we don't care if you believe or don't believe in God. I only want to know how NOT believing in God effects how you treat other people. We want to know your thoughts on ghosts, death of a love one, and naturalism.

Maybe you can come on the show and tell us what you think.

So vastly improbable that it could never, *ever* have occurred without supernatural agency? I mean I hear tell that life is so improbable as to be laughable. So... I guess that proves God is looking out for people who're looking up their friend's phone numbers from 20 years ago Smile Now if only we could get him to care about starving kiddies and amputees Tongue

I have an unbearable urge to correct their spelling. After all I've only got this one life.

Ghosts don't exist. Loved ones die and are gone forever. We will never see them again and even the memories will fade. It's a shit deal, right enough.

Naturalism I assume you refer to the idea that all things are bound by natural law and thus that the supernatural does not exist. Yes. I agree with that.

I expect you will get a variety of answers, although the tone of the answers will depend on the questions.

Discussion and/or argument is welcome, conversion attempts, less so.

Are you willing to answer questions?

I would love to answer questions about Astrophysics, the beginning of life, evolution, ghosts (not so much), and happiness. If it is a very difficult question, I'll have to get help from my co-host so that will take longer to respond. Sorry.

I, for one, look forward to your questions.

As for coming on your show. ...... sadly I don't really have any 'Points' other than being a 'Non-theist'.

But I talk funny, so might be good for some laughs. Big Grin


Hey 50% of a successful show is entertainment. Laugh out load If you sound funny and won't make fun of my accent, we would love to have you. We can provide the questions, if you care to give an honest answer.
