SkepSun #48 (07_21_2013)

Skeptical Sunday gets underway with Freethought Radio.  Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Barker report on FFRF’s victory in Ohio, removing a Jesus painting from Jackson High School, they talk with Mandisa Thomas, president of Black Nonbelievers, who is planning a “Blackout Rally” in New York City on Saturday July 27, celebrating the contributions of nonbelievers of color. We also get to enjoy George Carlin’s monologue on “God and Religion.” After Freethought Radio we will hear from both the late Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris, each of their takes on how the Ten Commandments could easily be improved upon.  Then in hour two, does religion lead people to be more cooperative, generous, friendly, and happy?  In a recent talk given at CFI-Michigan, Dr. Luke Galen of Grand Valley State University asks critical questions regarding the types of conclusions that can be drawn from the “religion makes you good” literature.
