SkepSun #74 (01_19_2014)

Christian apologists are not those who apologize for Christianity (although they should), but instead argue for the truth of it.  Today on Skeptical Sunday we’re all about counter-apologetics: the process of providing rational objections to Christianity and arguments made by religious apologists for it. We’ll hear from Christopher Hitchens, historian Richard Carrier, TV-show host Matt Dillahunty, and artificial intelligence expert Luke Muehlhauser.  But first, what do “Winnie the Pooh” and the movie “Saving Mr. Banks” have to do with freethought? Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor give us two different reasons on Freethought Radio. Then they talk with New York filmmaker and photographer Chris Johnson about his new book of full of great portrait photography,  A Better Life: 100 Atheists Speak Out on Joy & Meaning in a World Without God.
