Reconciling Your Religious Differences with a Sibling

RISK! is a podcast in which people share stories about their life in front of a live audience (similar to The Moth and certain stories heard on This American Life).

The most recent episode featured a story by Mara Wilson (you might remember her from this).

Here’s the setup: After graduating from high school, Mara became an atheist while her little sister Anna became very religious. At one point, Anna attempted to convince Mara that God existed through the use of Pascal’s Wager and other debunkable claims you might hear in Apologetics 101.

Ok, so they probably didn’t fight over religion this much. But I still like the picture.

It’s a really sweet story and it’s only about ten minutes long. it begins at the 33:30 mark.
